Cars are vain and sensitive; they care about how they look and want their owners to feel proud driving them, even if it's through an inconveniently placed fruit stand. Appease your car's ego with today's Groupon to Virginia Auto Service on East Virginia Avenue: for $49, you get a 2011 membership to the Car Care Club (a $379.65 value), which includes three full-service oil and filter changes, a 120-point comprehensive vehicle inspection, a year of roadside service, and a bevy of other automotive services and discounts.
Named AZ Central's Readers' Choice for Best Auto Repair Shop and one of Motor Age's 2010 Top Shops, Virginia Auto Service populates their garage with ASE-certified technicians and the best car-care equipment available. During three full-service oil and filter changes (valued at $29.95 each), gentle gear-tenders will purify vehicles, swapping out up to five quarts of standard oil, checking fluid levels, and making adjustments if necessary. Virginia Auto's 120-point comprehensive vehicle inspection leaves no leaf, airbag, or valve unturned (a $49.95 value), and a free battery-system test ensures ignition when trying to get the jump on rival storm chasers (a $49.95 value). Axle appendages get a rotation and balance (a $49.95 value), flat repair (a $25 value), express rotation (a $10 value), and nitrogen tire inflation, which stabilizes air pressure during sudden climatic shifts and preps wheels for firm, smooth runs over city streets and banana-peel-coated rural terrain alike (a $29.95 value).
Because Virginia Auto Service believes that the best care is preventive care, you'll also enjoy one full year of towing and emergency-roadside service to protect you from unforeseen emergencies as well as awkward attempts at chitchat in tow trucks (a $75 value). While your car is laid up in intensive car care, they'll even transport you to and from your home, office, or desiccated postapocalyptic desert compound, so long as it's within central Phoenix. Consult the side bar for additional discounts available.
