I was struggling to find a mechanic after being overcharged and taken advantage of at other auto mechanics in Portland. Ryan at Auto Pros Car Care was recommended through a friend and I have never had such a pleasant experience with a auto mechanic before. I brought my car to Ryan because I wanted to get it checked out before driving 4,000 miles across the country. I drive a 2000 Honda Accord that had about 208,000 miles on it when I brought it to him. He checked over everything and allowed me to take a look at each part he was inspecting and answered all my ignorant questions without hesitation. To my surprise, he could not find anything needing to be urgently fixed or addressed, but recommended a timing belt and water pump change. I was expecting to hear about changing the transmission fluid, brake fluid, shocks and struts, and other services that places like Jiffy Lube were pressuring me to do - I actually asked Ryan about this and he debunked them all. Changing the timing belt was appropriate as it was due for my car and I had no idea if it had ever actually been done at the recommended 100k service. He wasn't trying to bullsh*t me, he expressed concern that it would much more difficult and expensive for me if the timing belt broke during my trip. I spent $800 on the service as opposed to $2,000+ if the belt snapped. He did not charge me for the inspection, he gave me time to get the money together, and got my car in the shop and out in half a day! Remember, when I saw him I had less than a week left in Portland - he worked his schedule to get me in and out for the inspection and service in a timely fashion. Working on cars is more than a business for Ryan, it is his passion. He is honest, trustworthy, and a genuine human being. He cares about his work and will not recommend any work that doesn't absolutely need to be done. Since seeing him, I have recommended him to several friends and my partner and they all have similar things to say. I cannot thank him enough - I am finally driving my car with confidence. With his service, I have successfully driven across the country with all of my belongings and my partner. If you are stuck on trying to find the right mechanic, please consider Ryan.
