Like pet frogs, if cars aren't kept lubricated, they tend to dry out and malfunction on the way to the science fair. Keep your car's insides running smoothly with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a full-service oil change of up to five quarts of nonsynthetic oil at Protime Automotive in Virginia Beach (a $24.99 value).
Protime, a NAPA AutoCare center, primes vehicles for the road through a full-service oil change, which includes meticulous attention to the finer details of car maintenance. Protime recommends that car caretakers put their prized metal horse under the nose of a knowledgeable mechanic every 3,000–5,000 miles for an oil change and odor opinion. Protime's pros will execute an oil and filter change, uncorking the auto to drain expired oil and replacing it with newer, shinier black goo. Next, staffers adjust tire pressure to meet appropriate pounds per square inch and top off all fluids, before greasing up suspension and lubing door and hood hinges for a smooth ride from start to finish. A battery test checks for personality disorders, while the maintenance light is reset to spell out the name of your car's girlfriend in Morse code. Protime's meticulous chariot crackerjacks perform a 27-point inspection, building up the auto's insatiable ego before sending it in to get headshots taken.
