Unlike trees, cars can’t simply shed their old parts each year and watch as they are collected up and pasted into scrapbooks by nature-loving children. Help autos purge with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of auto parts and accessories at Parts Authority. This deal is valid at the following locations: Gaithersburg, Hyattsville, Rockville, Crofton, College Park and in the district on Minnesota Avenue, Chillum Place, and Georgia Avenue.
Parts Authority's well-stocked storefronts boast a bevy of name-brand auto parts to maintain cars at peak performance. Specialty parts abound, from items for domestic and imported vehicles to transmission components, taxi parts, and automotive equipment. Vehicles' asthmatic sputterings fade away with a Mann air filter ($6+); dragging engines come roaring back to life after a dose of Blue Mountain conventional motor oil ($2.39+). To prepare autos for unexpected cold snaps or frost-giant visits, stock up on a gallon of 50/50 diluted Peak anti-freeze ($6.49+). Smudgy windshields benefit from brand-new Treco 17-inch exact fit wiper blades ($7.67), and a backup Exide 24F-60 car battery ($70.55+) ensures your family won't get stuck out at the campsite after using the car's headlights to make shadow puppets around the fire.
