Cars need regular oil changes to keep them running in top form, just as winning racehorses need periodic blood transfusions to keep the drive for victory coursing through their veins. Treat your chariot like a champ with today's Groupon: for $35, you get a car-care package at Tuffy Auto Service Center (a $94.90 value). The package includes:
- The Better oil change (a $24.95 value)
- A new set of wiper blades (a $30 value)
- Tire rotation (a $19.95 value)
- Nitrogen inflation of four tires (a $20 value)
Inside a shop lined with daffodil-yellow trim and awnings, Tuffy's ASE-certified technicians take up wrenches to care for cars in need of maintenance. Each Better oil change slickens engines with up to five quarts of 10W-30 motor oil and includes a 25-point inspection to identify safety hazards such as underinflated tires or overinflated radiators. The mechanics also replace the oil filter, lube the chassis, and top off fluids before outfitting windshields with a brand new set of raindrop-wiping blades. In addition, Tuffy's techs rotate tires and inflate them with nitrogen, which improves fuel economy and keeps tires under more constant pressure than regular air.
Tuffy Auto Service Center
The first Tuffy Auto Service Center touched down in Detroit in 1970. The shop flourished, and today it has extensions in 15 states. Its ASE-certified technicians tend to all manner of repairs and maintenance services, from basic tire rotations and oil changes to more complex tasks, such as getting all the gummy bears out of the cassette deck. Between visits, car owners can consult Tuffy's list of car-care tips, which includes advice on how to stay on top of seasonal musts and how to keep an ear out for early signs of trouble.
