I took my 2009 Toyota for a major repair; they actually seemed to care about my cost. They repaired it quickly and efficiently; saved me over $400 from the dealer. Very pleased; will keep going back.

I cannot recommend this shop for diesel repairs. I towed my truck to them three times and spent several thousands and they failed to fix the problem. I must conclude that their diesel technician is just not very good.

COMPANY DOES NOT GIVE A CRAP ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMERS AT ALL!!! This is the worst repair shop in town. My husband put a new engine in our old ford pick up and refurbished it we then took the truck in to have some minor work done and our truck sat in the side parking lot forever. Then one day I drove by and saw the truck was gone. I thought my husband picked it up...he didn't. The truck was somehow stolen from the parking lot. When we went into speak to Jay Estes (the owners son) he said he didn't know where the truck was, he assumed that we came and picked it up but the keys were hanging on the wall behind him. We pointed that out to him, he looked and saw the keys hanging there and then pointed to this haggered old sign that said "Not responsible for lost or stolen items" and that was it. We called the police and made a police report but have now idea how somebody could have stolen that truck without the keys. THIS COMPANY DOES NOT GIVE A CRAP ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMERS AT ALL!!! I was required to rate this business to be able to post but i would give this business negative 5 million stars.

Highly recommend! I walked in with transmission issues (after a very discouraging visit to DEQ) and they were direct, honest and checked out my car free of charge on the spot to get a feel for what might be going on. This was after going to 2 other mechanics who gave me the run around and wanted $90 to just take a look at the car. Jim Estes's made it so my time and theirs wasn't wasted. I won't go anywhere else! Thank you for your trustworthy service!

Oregon City Car Care
Buyer BEWARE!!!I brought my truck to Oregon City car care to have the brakes bled and the tranny leak stopped since they rebuilt it less than 50 miles ago. After leaving the truck with them, I was called and told my cam was flat and I needed a complete valve job which would probably require two new heads since the existing ones on the sbc block were 1966 power paks. They charged me for a compression test and said that the number 1 cylinder lobe on the cam was flat with an "estimate" of $1200 plus parts. I declined and told them to simply fix the tranny leak and bleed the brakes ...AND do NOT do any work that will put the bill over $200 without calling me for authorization. Upon picking up the car I was presented a bill for $300. The truck was still leaking tranny fluid and the brake lines still had air in them. I forked over the $190 I had in cash just to get my truck back from these pretenders.After taking my truck to a reputable shop, I was told that there was no way that Oregon City Car care could have done a compression test without removing the headers. The cam did need replacing but it was cylinder #6 (showing me the cam) that was bad and the spark plug to 6 was actually the only plug that could not be removed without removing the header meaning that if OC Car Care would have actually did what they said that they did, they would have been able to correctly diagnose the problem. The reputable shop verified that the brake lines still had alot of air in them after they bled them for me so I took my receipt back to the owner (Terry) at Oregon City Car Care and asked what I had paid for since the compression test was performed (showing him the cam), the brakes were not bled and the tranny was still leaking. He said he look into it and get back to me. I told him I was willing to pay for any work performed but I am not willing to pay for work that was only said to have been performed. I want my money back for what I paid for but didn't receive but Terry didn't ever call me back. I have heard nothing from Terry since (big surprise?) even though I have spoke to him face-to-face twice now about this. When I was little my momma told me to watch out for the crooks and thieves in this world and now I'm giving you the same warning. I landed in some quicksand along life's trail and just telling you where it was that I found it. Check our other google reviews declaring their dishonesty too if you don't want to take my word for it. Just say... "No, thanks"

Ive always had a good expierience and godd repairs w this shoppe
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
