For more than 30 years, Oil Can Henry's has been making sure road warriors run safely and efficiently with their famous full-service oil change. Relax from the comfort of the driver’s seat as the friendly techs sate your engine’s thirsty parts with up to five quarts of Castrol GTX conventional oil, protecting the engine against thermal breakdown and dry skin. Apart from their delicious new oil, coddled cars also receive a new oil filter, chassis lubrication, windshield washing, and a visual inspection of both the chassis and under the hood. A check and fill of the power steering and windshield-washer fluid will leave the auto feeling refreshed, and a tire-pressure check and fill will leave it bouncing like a robotic baby. The maintenance mavens will also check everything from the brake fluid and PCV filter to the lights and windshield wipers, ensuring every inch of your chicken-less carriage is in optimal working order. A video monitor positioned next to the driver's window allows customers to view the entire under-hood and under-body service, and every change comes with Henry's Top-Up Guarantee, which allows customers to return within three months or 3,000 miles for a complimentary topping off of fluids (upon presentation of receipt).
As a co-op of independent and family-owned garages, AutoCare Northwest has two primary requirements for membership: ASE-certified technicians and the NAPA nationwide warranty. Whether in Portland or Oregon City, each participating auto-care center is manned by highly trained technicians, who offer a range of services—from simple oil changes to major repairs—backed by NAPA's Peace of Mind 12-month or 12,000-mile written warranty. The crews install quality NAPA parts, most of which include a lifetime guarantee for as long as the customer owns the car or remembers its middle name.
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.
Honest-1 Auto Care's ASE-certified technicians keep vehicles in good health with surgery-like precision and care.

As an environmentally-friendly business, Honest-1 Auto Care concludes services with eco-friendly disposal of old motor oil, and, if needed, lubrication of the chassis. Along with top-notch vehicle maintenance, Honest-1 Auto Care's centers cultivate a family-friendly environment complete with children's play areas, complimentary beverages, and large-screen TVs.

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.
Though it originally sold only two things—audio products and wireless phones—Car Toys has gradually expanded its repertoire. Today, with 50 locations spread across four states, electronics-certified technicians install everything from Alpine in-dash navigation units to phone-integration systems that sync iPhones, Androids, and tin cans to car stereos. Meanwhile, in the garage, detailing technicians meticulously spruce up cars inside and out, using deionized water, paint-friendly shampoos, and high-quality wash mitts to protect against scratches, swirls, and water spots. The team also sweeps through interiors with vacuums, hot-water extractors, and ozone deodorizing treatment, which kills airborne bacteria and nasty smells in one fell swoop.
