What You'll Get
When hubristic ancient Greeks put off maintaining their cars, the gods punished them by forcing them to push broken-down jalopies uphill for eternity. Avoid a Sisyphean fate with today’s Groupon: for $21, you get an oil change and tire rotation (a $58.95 value) at Ocean Air Auto Repair Tire Pros in Virginia Beach.
Ocean Air Auto Repair Tire Pros won a 2010 Best of Hampton Roads Award from The Virginian-Pilot for its outstanding customer service and quality workmanship. During the oil change, ASE-certified technicians replace worn out lubricant with fresh stores of slick hydrocarbons, preempting undesirable grinding like chaperones at a high school dance. The auto authorities then rotate the car's circular shoes, extending the tires' lifetime and improving their performance by counteracting the uneven wear caused by taking Devil’s Curve on two wheels.
While experts groom their iron horses, owners can sink into padded, leather chairs in the waiting room and peruse periodicals, tune into the flat-screen TV, or watch their offspring play in the children’s area. Customers can top off their own fuel tanks at the beverage bar with tea, coffee, or a noncaffeinated cocktail of two parts hydrogen, one part oxygen.
