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.
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.

Clutch and brake inspections are always free, and warranties back up the services that aren't.

Though ownership has changed over the years, Original Coffee Brake has remained a staple of the Aloha community since 1993, and has always been operated by locals. Scott and Kereah Carpenter, the current owner-operators, are no exception. And since they've taken over, they've worked hard to retain the community atmosphere that keeps customers coming back. This means that on any given day you might see baristas celebrating a regular's birthday or Scott practicing ballroom dancing with his mom. While visitors relax in leather armchairs, staffers craft breakfast burritos, sandwiches, and homemade soup as well as a variety of coffee drinks, brewed with beans roasted in-house by Scott.

Depending on the location, punch cards may also feature tire rotations, brake inspections, engine-light readings, air-conditioning performance tests, and other repairs and inspections essential to a car's well-being. Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
