Portland Oregon Safari Experts?

Postby Phinias [OP] » December 19th 2016, 7:15pm

Hello!

I have a trusty 1998 Astro LT AWD with 151K on it. I've had it for at least 8 years...and put 110k on it since purchasing. I'm seriously considering putting some money into it (suspension, engine, etc) over time, but don't do much wrenching myself (limited time, limited skills), and I'm looking for any recommendations for mechanics, shade tree or otherwise, in the area that do good work for non-dealership prices. Let me know what you know! Thanks!

Don't know about that, but it's never too late to learn to work on your own vehicles.

Agree, a whole lot cheaper too.

TurnNBurn is an experienced mechanic in Bend, OR. Copperfiremist is a boss mechanic too but further up in Seattle.
