A fixture in the automotive industry since 1980, Clarke's Discount Inc.’s efficiency-boosting services and repairs helped earn the shop certifications from the Department of Energy and the Department of Environmental Quality. Inside each service bay, ASE-certified technicians swap in factory quality parts backed by a 12-month, 12,000-mile warranty. No matter the repair, Monday–Saturday hours do their best to accommodate busy schedules, while an early-bird and night-owl drop box cares for those who can't meet shop hours. Recognizing that some drivers prefer to fix things themselves, Clark's Discount Inc. also stocks a fully supplied repair shop flush with fluids, tools, and taped readings of the Kelley Blue Book.
From major auto-body repairs to mold removal, the technicians at Ace Car Reconditioning handle nearly all automotive needs, and they do it with enough care and expertise to show off an Angie’s List Super Service award. At three locations in the Portland area, the crew spruces up exteriors with Llumar window films and revitalizes interiors with carpet shampooing and an ozone treatment that removes odors left behind by pets and hitchhiking dumpster divers. Dents and dings pop right out with paintless dent removal, and the team makes scratches disappear with Applied Colors’ paint-touchup system. Aside from superficial fixes, the Ace squad ensures cars are safe and sound with auto-body repairs such as hood and bumper replacements.
The staff at Precision Import Repair is ASE- and DEQ-certified and trained exclusively to service Japanese cars such as Toyota, Honda, Infiniti, and Subaru. With more than 35 collective years of experience, they tackle mechanical problems both large and small. To maintain foreign vehicles’ peak performances, they assess problems with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and perform scheduled oil changes. Larger problems such as faulty AC units also fall under their jurisdiction, as well as brakes that require repairs and engines that need to be rebuilt or motivated by the mocking countenance of speed-limit signs. Precision Import Repair offers two-year, 24,000-mile warranties on all repairs.
Clutch and Brake Doctors Auto Repair Shop has been servicing cars since 1995, launching with two specialties—clutches and brakes—and later expanding into full-service territory. The team of ASE-certified technicians can wield their wrenches and repair emission and electrical systems, change old oil, and rescue air conditioners before they sputter out their final warm breath of desperation. Clutch and brake inspections are always free, and warranties back up the services that aren't.
Brake Team dedicate their nickname and business to one specialized, yet essential portion of customers' vehicles. Replacing brake pads, resurfacing rotors, and repacking non-sealed bearings may are some of the centers' more popular services, but the technicians are also capable of performing general automotive maintenance as well as basic brake system cleanings when needed. To help put visitors' minds at ease, the technicians also offer complimentary brake inspections, checking for potential problems and giving nicknames to each lug nut. The brothers currently own and operate 11 Brake Team locations throughout the Portland area and proudly embrace their reputation as local business owners within the Pacific Northwest.
Randy Hansen calls himself a “car guy” and for good reason. As a kid, he would wander around his father’s dealership, washing cars here and there and checking out the parts-and-service centers. As an adult, Randy knew he enjoyed working with his hands, so in 1992, he opened PDR Solutions and dedicated his time to repairing dents and dings. Using a paintless dent-removal process, Randy can restore autos damaged by runaway shopping carts, hail storms, and love taps from squad cars, with all prices based on prework estimates.
