Getting your car detailed is the best way to feel like you have a new vehicle, next to rolling around in your office chair making pretend engine noises. Avoid awkward glances from coworkers with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a Platinum interior and exterior detailing at Steve's Automotive Detailing in Cottage Grove (up to a $220 value).
The expert staff at Steve's Automotive instills motor moxie inside and out with a bevy of cleaning and reconditioning services that can help extend the life of road-weary wagons. The three- to five-hour Platinum detailing ($190–$220, prices vary based on the vehicle) includes a car wash, rim and tire shine, and window wiping as well as an engine cleanse and degreasing treatment. A three-step buffing process combined with a wax and paint-sealant application restores vehicles to their former, luminous glory, making them feel young enough to run donuts around aging Model Ts.
On the inside, Steve's Automotive technicians degrease and clean all trunk and door jambs on top of purging gunk from panels and vents. Seats and carpets are also treated to a vehicular baptism, their surfaces graced with a shampoo, vacuum, and stain-remover treatment followed by a fabric-protectant application. Steve's auto experts will also clean and treat leather interiors to prevent unsightly fading and unlawful branding by cow herders.
