Like an Olympic sprinter with his head stuck in a stairway banister, vehicle engines desperately need lubrication if they're going to run properly. Oil up with today's Groupon: for $30, you get three Basic oil changes, including an oil and filter change, tire rotation, air-pressure check, and 23-point inspection, at Meineke Car Care Center in Baytown (a $59.85 value).
Having opened more than 870 franchises in the United States since its inception in 1972, Meineke Car Care Center's steadfast staff refills sluggish engines with life-giving oil, restoring them to youthful vigor and coolness. Technicians drain spent oil, replacing it with up to 5 quarts of standard motor oil, unladen with built-up impurities or 3,000 miles of emotional baggage. To ensure overall vehicle health, technicians also check air pressure and conduct a 23-point inspection of vehicular systems, including safety checks and structural inspections. A professional tire rotation rounds out the service, swapping tire positions as needed to ensure even tread wear and keep handling at peak performance.
