Despite their mechanical nature, cars are sensitive and must be groomed, protected, and lulled to sleep by the sound of a mechanic ripping up a Haynes manual. Show your car you care with today's Groupon: for $14, you get a semi-synthetic oil change at Monteith Tire in Elkhart (a $28.95 value).
During Monteith Tire's 30–45-minute oil change, ASE-certified mechanics swap out sludgy, old oil in exchange for new fluids. A five-quart booster shot of semi-synthetic oil bolsters the engine's mileage muscles and lends proper lubrication to its inner metals. Finally, techs install a filter to protect the engine from contaminants and mean-spirited namecalling. Oil changes at Monteith are available on a walk-in basis, so customers can take in their cars on a whim or without waiting for permission from the mayor.
Without fresh oil, the parts of an engine gradually generate more friction and move less efficiently. Tire rotations can prolong the life of tires, helping to distribute wear more evenly. Simple maintenance processes such as these can save drivers money and time and prevent breakdowns in the dark woods where terrible barbershop quartets practice. To this end, Monteith Tire’s technicians, who are certified by the Automotive Service Excellency agency, have worked to keep rides running smoothly for nearly three decades.
