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.
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.
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.
George Lee, owner of iTint Window Tinting, helms a staff of technicians who adorn panes of glass with Solar Gard window films. Whether clear, gray, or black like a squid's heart, these tinted films block the sun's ultraviolet rays and heat, which can damage car interiors and cause passenger discomfort. The Solar Gard authorized dealer also offers a lifetime manufacturer's warranty. When they aren't intercepting sinister sunbeams, George's technicians provide exterior and interior vinyl wrapping, paint protection, and headlight restoration services.
Auto Boutique’s crew of skilled technicians travels to their clients’ cars, wherever they may be, to keep rides safe and comfortable through a list of accessory services. They dissolve hints of cigarette smoke hidden deep inside fabrics and tackle rotten-food smells from deep within the glove compartment a passenger once mistook for a fridge. Headlights shine brighter and clearer after restoration, and drivers can better see the road before them, thanks to the team’s expert windshield-repair services. For curb and road rash, Auto Boutique offers wheel repair.

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.
