A family-operated business for more than 35 years, Sun Automotive populates its AAA-approved shops with ASE-certified master technicians who keep cars in proper driving order. During an oil change, vehicles eagerly slurp up a five-quart smoothie of fresh, conventional oil and try on a brand-new filter for size. The technicians also lube up the chassis and top off transmission fluid, radiator coolant, and windshield wiper-fluid before replacing windshield wipers and rotating the tires, which encourages even wear and tear and ensures that tires can live a long, fulfilling life until they retire in a junkyard. In addition, Sun Automotive's staff will examine cars during a 59-point inspection, diagnosing any potential problems and interpreting autos' most troubling dreams. Drivers also receive a free car-wash coupon, which they may redeem at Coburg Road Car Wash or Elite Car Bath.
Pit Stop U.S.A.'s friendly technicians share decades of automotive experience to safely and efficiently spruce up engines during 10-15 minute oil changes. Five quarts of fresh Pennzoil lubricant grace car bellies to flow through brand new filters and keep pistons pumping smoothly. Techs recycle the used oil and filter, helping them avoid landfills and finally earning conservationism merit badges, then check and top off important fluids, such as transmission, brake, and power steering solutions. A quick inspection assesses air filtration in the cabin, strength of serpentine belts, and light operation to ensure safe driving at night. Following services, car owners roll through drive-in bays that scrub car skins, spacious enough to accommodate RVs, oversized trucks, and Weinermobiles.
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.
At Extreme Clean, owner Mike Small welcomes all manner of land and water transportation, including cars, trucks, boats, RVs, and motorcycles, with soap-covered arms. His team of experienced techs hand washes and waxes automotive exoskeletons with Auto Magic car-care products to rid rides of grime and instill more shine than replacing paint with bioluminescent sequins. Drivers can pair a detail package with à la carte services, which address additional aesthetic concerns such as chipped glass, cigarette burns, and discolored carpets.
Since 1985, a local Eugene family has helmed one of Jiffy Lube's 2,000 service centers, where cars come to receive a range of maintenance services by a fleet of ASE-certified technicians. From inspecting and replacing stale batteries to refreshing cooling systems with a new ice tray, the Jiffy Lube team sustains vehicles from bumper to bumper. They also offer an exhaustive signature oil change, complete with fresh filters, a thorough inspection, and interior vacuuming.
Boasting more than 90 years of combined auto-body, restoration, and detailing experience, Diamond Auto Spa cleans the crevices of cars with professional care. Diamond's employees can lavish roadsters with a 30-minute wash and wax, whisking vehicles by hand with cleaners that contain wax components and scouring every corner of the car, down to the family of field mice singing show tunes in the wheel well. Available for cars (an $85 value), small SUVs (a $95 value), and large SUVs or trucks (a $105 value), Diamond's mini detail begins with a vacuum of interior carpet and upholstery before scouring the dashboard and center console. Over the course of four hours, Diamond's crack cleaners will hand wash exteriors, tires, and rims, removing insects and tar from lower-body panels and applying cleaning wax for protection.
