A well-maintained car tends to purr like a cat, but a particularly well-maintained car will knead your belly with its wheels while you're trying to sleep. Keep the look of thinly veiled feline disdain on your vehicle's grill with today's Groupon: for $99, you get an oil change, coolant flush, tire rotation, and air-conditioning check at Solutions Automotive in McKinney (a $210.35 total value).
The winner in the Best Repair category in the 2010 WFAA A-List, Solutions Automotive goes the extra 5,280 miles to tackle car maintenance with its outfit of industrious ASE-certified technicians. Each car begins its restorative regimen with an oil change, which includes a fresh filter and an infusion of up to five quarts of 5W30 motor oil (a $37.95 value). Next, the Solutions pit crew ferrets out buildup, rust, and contaminants from radiators by flushing their coolant (a $69.95 value), ensuring engines don't overheat and tear open their bodices in a fit of white-hot passion. A tire rotation (a $42.50 value) prevents uneven wear by letting car wheels contra-dance to new positions. Solutions finishes by checking the air conditioning (a $59.95 value) for freon leaks, calibrating the thermostat, and checking the condenser and filter for wiretaps.
