The technicians at Willy’s Genuine Auto Detail wield machinery and their own nimble fingers as they free cars from dirt and imbue them with glossy finishes. Detailing sessions can include interior vacuuming as well as mechanized buffing and hand-applied wax, and specialty sealants help keep paint glistening like a raw steak resting atop a clean kitchen counter. The shop also fits windows with tints and smoothes out dings and dents.
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.
From major auto-body repairs to mold removal, the technicians at Ace Car Reconditioning handle nearly all automotive needs, and they do it with enough care and expertise to show off an Angie’s List Super Service award. At three locations in the Portland area, the crew spruces up exteriors with Llumar window films and revitalizes interiors with carpet shampooing and an ozone treatment that removes odors left behind by pets and hitchhiking dumpster divers. Dents and dings pop right out with paintless dent removal, and the team makes scratches disappear with Applied Colors’ paint-touchup system. Aside from superficial fixes, the Ace squad ensures cars are safe and sound with auto-body repairs such as hood and bumper replacements.

Since 1988, Auto Care Super Saver has been helping car owners save cash with maintenance punch cards redeemable at local auto shops throughout the course of a full year.

Customers can transfer the punch card's benefits to any ride, ranging from station wagons to sports cars to feral merry-go-round mounts.
The flagship of Imperial Limousines’ fleet is not a party bus or a stretch SUV—it’s a pair of vintage Bentleys. One is a black-and-silver 1957 Bentley S1, and the other is a tudor-gray-and-silver 1961 Bentley S2. Both vehicles have gray leather upholstery that is accented by handcrafted wood, and both look good carrying a bride and groom. The chauffeurs also have Lincoln Town Cars and stretch limos at their disposal for airport transfers, wine tours, and last-minute lifts after your car drives off to join the circus.
The Drive In Car Wash's 24-hour facility scours automobiles of grime, grit, and road debris, returning paint to an immaculate finish. The reloadable card can be applied to any touchless automatic wash on the menu, including the super wash ($13), deluxe wash ($11), and wax and wash ($9). Automobiles enter the high-pressure wash gantry, where a robotic arm blasts grime from the vehicle's surface, scours its underbelly, and obliterates lingering water droplets with gusts of artificial wind, finishing up by bathing road-weary wheels and coating cars' shells with a clear-coat protectant.
