Steens Master Lube
If you are looking for a good car mechanic that is fair and reasonable, I'd highly recommend Steens Master Lube in Newport. Got stuck in Newport with a dead battery. Went to a couple different shops (leaving the car running) and was told it would be 3 days to get the correct battery in from Portland, or it could be over-nighted for an extra fee. Frustrated, I started calling the auto parts stores and low a behold found the right battery on the shelf at NAPA for a good price. Contemplating the best way to get this new battery in: tools needed, the car security system going haywire, etc. I ended up at Steens Master Lube. Russ, the owner, was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about my specific car's needs. He had me in and out of there in 20 minutes and wouldn't take a cent from me no matter how much I insisted. You can learn more about their repair shop on their website at http://AutoRepairNewport.com

THE PRICE AND SERVICE ARE TOPS!Called about getting brake work done on trip from Memphis, TN. Told me to come right in, also gave an estimate for repair costs that was better than fair. Drove in, they started service immediately and when finished, the final bill was exactly the same as the estimate.Wish I could convince the owner to move to Memphis, I'd use him for all my repair work!

Tips & Advices
Yes. New tires purchased online can often be priced lower than ones at a tire dealership. Buyers can often avoid state sales taxes and locate hard-to-find tire styles and sizes, but will still have to locate a local tire installer and pay sometimes high shipping costs.
The average cost of a set of new tires is $637, with a range of between $525-$725. In addition, installation includes mounting and balancing, alignment, and disposal of old tires.
The vehicle is raised and the old wheels are removed, then the old tires are removed from the wheels. The lug nuts, wheels, and valve stems are inspected and replaced as needed. The new tires are mounted and sealed, then inflated and balanced. The wheels are then replaced on the car. The average installation takes approximately 45 minutes.
Agencies such as the Tire Industry Association promotes tire safety through advocacy and education to the industry including: manufacture, sales, repair, service and recycling. Seek a full-service tire dealer who carries a wide variety of tire types and brands and asks about the type of driving you normally do.
  • Move your car to a safe location.
  • Turn on your car’s safety lights, apply the parking brakes and remove the hubcap if there is one.
  • Loosen the lug nuts with a lug wrench (but do not remove them), raise the vehicle with a jack and then fully remove the lugnuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, lower the car and then tighten them fully with the lug wrench.
