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.
Epark Eugene's garages, lots, and street spots can comfortably house more than 3,000 automobiles as drivers spend time working or playing downtown. After receiving a parking permit by mail or picking it up at Epark's office, customers may drop off their vehicle or feral merry-go-round mount and enjoy easy access to downtown attractions including restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries, doughnut shops, and book stores. Outfitted with 24/7 security services, the parking structures and lots look after passengerless cars as carefully as a child guarding his Micro Machines from acid rain.
Servicing the cycles of beginner and advanced riders alike, Collin's Cycle Shop coasts on its reputation of attentive customer service and mechanical excellence. The cycling-centric staff assists riders in finding a range of pedal-worthy products to complement their tour du jour. A variety of fenders ($50), indoor racks ($40), and car racks ($75) dot the brightly lit showroom alongside fixed-gear and multi-gear bike brands from manufacturers such as Giant, Redline, and Specialized. Helmets ($45+) and lights ($20–$145) ensure rider safety while U-locks ($45) protect bikes from floating away into the stratosphere. Cyclists enjoy free tune-ups with all new bike purchases, as wells as free lifetime truing on all custom-made wheels. Recognizing the varied goals and needs of every customer, Collin's Cycles offers customized bike fitting ($50–$300) for commuters, enthusiasts, and professional riders. A two-wheeling tech works with each rider during the fitting by installing ergonomically savvy combinations of handlebars, stems, and grips on the bike for optimal positioning and comfortable saddling of damsels in distress.
Eugene Hybrid Taxi Cabs takes sustainability seriously. One of its vehicles has gone without any major repairs for more than 450,000 miles—on par with circling the Earth 18 times. The company's fleet is composed solely of Toyota Prius hybrids, which produce an estimated 60% fewer emissions than standard cabs. Combining a commitment to the environment with convenience, the staff dispatches taxis 24 hours of the day, whether you require a skilled chauffeur for an early-morning jaunt to the Eugene Airport or a late-night trip to the neighborhood tire fire.
