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 (a $59.85 value), including a filter change, tire rotation, air-pressure check, and 23-point inspection, at either of two Meineke Car Care Center locations.
Having opened more than 870 franchises in the United States since its inception in 1972, Meineke Car Care Center staffs expert technicians who refill sluggish engines with life-giving oil, restoring them to youthful vigor and coolness in about an hour. Technicians drain spent oil, replacing it with up to five 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.
Though Meineke Car Care Center sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
