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.
Downtown Automotive Center's ASE-certified technicians diagnose and repair every sort of car system—be it airbags, environmental controls, or engines. As masters in their field, they have the confidence to back all of their repairs with a two-year or 24,000-mile warranty. They also perform tasks of simple maintenance, swapping out old oil for new and winterizing vehicles to resist the effects of frost or plowing through snowmen who refuse to leave the crosswalk. For extensive repairs, they provide clients with shuttle service to home or work while they patch up vehicles.
Between candy-striped walls, Cat Davidson sets to work at The Eco Salon, where she treats clients to rejuvenating facial treatments. Maneuvering the high-tech Nu Skin Galvanic Spa System II, she can work to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by infusing skin with anti-aging unguents. Elsewhere in the salon, Cat's colleagues perform hair, nail, and skin treatments using ecoconscious products, such as ammonia-free hair color and plutonium-free nail polish.
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.
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.
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.
