What You'll Get
Cars are vain and sensitive; they care about how they look and want their owners to feel proud driving them, even if it's through a conveniently placed fruit stand. For $30, today's deal takes care of your ride's hacking cough and chronic phlegminess with two oil changes, filter replacements, and tire rotations (a $70 total value) from any of 10 LA-area Midas locations (see sidebar). This deal is only good for 5W30 and 10W30 oil blends; synthetic or bubbly varieties cost extra. You can split this double service package between two people, two dates, two vehicles, or two versions of yourself.
The Midas oil change will swap out up to 5 quarts of oil matched to the correct viscosity grade for your vehicle (you'll have to pay the difference for anything over 5 quarts). Midas technicians will also check to see if your filter needs to be replaced and will rotate your tires to help reduce wear over time, as well as play down obvious indicators that the pumpkin-sticker-covered Back-Lefty is your favorite.
While performing routine tasks such as getting your oil changed helps you become an adult way faster than individually stapling hairs to your shoulder, repeating them every 3,000 miles actually suspends the aging process—keeping you young and beautiful forever and obviating the need for cosmetic surgery like stapled-shoulder-hair removal. Call Midas to make your appointment.

Armed with efficient catalytic converters built to U.S. EPA standards, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.
