What You'll Get
Your car relies on you to maintain it regularly and not to gun it across any rivers, even if there are free Thickburgers on the opposite bank. Keep your vehicular promises with today's Groupon: for $39, you get an oil change, tire rotation, and a New York state safety and emissions inspection at Total Automotive in Amherst (an $82 total value).
The team of expert auto docs at Total Automotive deftly diagnoses and treats ailing domestic, foreign, and hybrid vehicles. Technicians first freshen engine cocktails with an oil change, replacing up to five quarts of synthetic blend oil to reduce grime, lubricate moving parts, and increase resistance to malaria ($40). Wheels are shifted during tire rotation ($21) to reduce uneven wear, while a thorough New York state safety and emissions inspection keeps the ride legally in the clear ($21). Finally, motor mavens consult with drivers to address their vehicle's recurring problems, such as a faulty transmission or a gearshift that fails to cause time-travel, and make recommendations from the inspection's findings. Visits vary in length from about 30 to 60 minutes, after which point staff stays within reach with a year of emergency auto club membership, good for two tows.
Total Automotive sports six service bays throughout which they strive to reduce their carbon footprint by recycling waste oil to heat the facilities during winter, inflating tires with nitrogen instead of air, and offering free shuttle service in a fuel-efficient car. Car-owners who opt to remain at the center during their appointments can keep offspring occupied with a toy-filled play area while using the complimentary WiFi to download slow-motion videos of cats eating spaghetti.
