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.
With America's Best Car Care Plan, ASE-certified technicians keep autos running smoothly by injecting car insides with up to 5 quarts of clean conventional oil (upgrades to synthetic require additional charges) and performing a host of auto-maintenance services. Brake inspections and adjustments grant drivers the peace of mind that cars are safe and equipped for inclement weather and duck-crossing signs that come out of nowhere. Two tire rotations ensure automotive equilibrium can find long-lasting balance and tire grooves wear evenly.
Black cars are notoriously tough to keep clean. But the technicians at Elite Auto Spa have so perfected their detailing skills, that owners of black cars can rest assured there will be no visible swirl marks atop the paint job after the washing, buffing, and polishing has ended. Credit the techs vast experience—which has been honed over 14 years working with high-end vehicles—for the picture-perfect finish. That time has also led them to become experts in a slew of services, from removing bad odors, to steam cleaning engines, to scotch-guarding interior upholstery. Of course, their number one specialty continues to be their signature detailing service. This whole-car overhaul includes steam-cleaning carpets and leather, wiping down interiors and tires, and hand-washing and polishing the exterior until it shines like a diamond that's just been through a car wash.
