Pistons and shafts overheat and seize up unless protected by a slick, shiny coating of oil, just like classical Greco-Roman wrestlers. Keep your engine parts from throttling each other with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a standard oil change, tire rotation, and 22-point inspection (a $95 value) at The Small Car Shop on North Jackson Avenue.
Dishing out diagnostic prognostication in a pint-sized package, the certified gearsmiths at The Small Car Shop have been keeping autos ambulatory for more than 30 years. Slickify sullen motor parts with a standard oil change, swapping out foul-mouthed crude for up to four, non-synthetic quarts of fresh-faced fluid, along with a newly-minted filter to protect it against contaminants and engine bullies. The Small Car Shop also keeps treads tidy with a tire rotation—a rubbery game of musical chairs that cuts down on undue wear and ensures gripping grooves stay stalwart as long as possible. Each service package also unleashes an exhaustive inspection litany during a rigorous 22-point check, as the jumpsuit sleuths snoop through belts and hoses, hunting for snafus among brakes, cooling systems, batteries, and the increasingly common dashboard deep fryer.
The Small Car Shop's service package renders roadsters road-ready in around an hour. Owing to heated intercontinental debate about the metric value of a baker's dozen, today's Groupon is not valid with European cars.
