During the 17-point oil change, SpeeDee's experienced technicians will replace old, worn-out oil with up to five quarts of fresh-faced young oil, straight from lubricant college and ready to take on the heat, dust, and incredible pressures of today's high-octane internal-combustion world. Additional services include checking and filling transmission fluid, radiator coolant, windshield-washer fluid, and more, as well as inspecting belts and hoses for peanut-butter smears and checking and setting tire pressure. To help newly acquainted oils and fluids fulfill their potential, tires are rotated to encourage even wear, and brakes are checked to extend the lifespan of the vehicle, the vehicle's passengers, and careless ground squirrels.
Lines of dirty cars have been forming outside the automated car-wash tunnel at Homestead Car Wash ‘N Gas for more than 25 years. At the front of each line, you’ll find the car wash’s friendly staff prepping each vehicle. This gesture serves two purposes: to ensure top-notch customer service and to ready the cars for one of the three tiered washes, which feature soft cloths, Armor All products, and à la carte services such as tire dressing and body shield. The tunnel opens for business seven days a week, and the facility's gas pumps fill up gas tanks and Paul Bunyan’s coffee mug 24/7.

To keep your vehicle in top shape, gear heads generally advise getting an oil change every 3,000 miles or three to six months—or after every seemingly coincidental encounter with that mysterious goat. Fortunately, the friendly, certified technicians at Pennzoil Speed Oil Change Center can provide your full-service oil change for up to five quarts of regular Pennzoil oil in 10 minutes flat. At the same time, they'll perform checks and top-offs of essential fluids, including power-steering, transmission or transaxle, battery, window-washer, radiator, and differential fluids. Likewise, they'll insert a new oil filter, properly inflate the tires, check wiper blades, adjust flux capacitors, lubricate the chassis, and scope out the air filter (of most cars) for any suspicious activity. These show-offs will even slap on a 3,000-mile or three-month service warranty, and Groupon customers will also receive a free promotional gift, rewards card, and $10 gift certificate.
