What You'll Get
Like an Olympic sprinter with his head stuck in a stairway banister, vehicle engines desperately need lubrication if they’re going to run properly. Oil up with today’s Groupon to Tuffy Auto Service. Choose from the following locations: Ames, Clive, and West Des Moines. Choose from the following options:
- For $20, you get an oil change, tire rotation, and 41-point inspection (a $48 value).
- For $39, you get two oil changes, tire rotations, and 41-point inspections (a $96 value).
- For $29, you get a four-wheel alignment (a $79.95 value).
- For $25, you get $50 worth of service and maintenance.
The seasoned technicians at ASE-certified Tuffy Auto Service squeeze peak performances out of flagging automobiles with booster shots of oil, repair, and preventative maintenance services. During each oil change, techs swap troublemaking fluids for up to 5 quarts of clean oil, slap on a dutiful new filter, and reposition tires to extend their life and introduce them to new eligible axles. Next, a 41-point inspection leads eagle-eyed techs around the vehicle in search of potential hazards or performance-obstructing problems. Alternatively, staffers straighten out wayward steering systems with a wheel alignment, calibrating the positioning of the concrete kissers with computerized equipment so that the wheels respond to even the smallest steering wheel command without resisting, wobbling, or pouting in a corner. Customers can also pamper their oil-guzzling pets with a treatment from a menu of services (not including battery or tire services), rewarding jalopies for their years of service or first successfully popped wheelie with an oil-change package, brake service, or cooling-system maintenance.
Though Tuffy Auto Service Center sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
