Dan’s Auto Center is proud to offer diesel repair for Lake Oswego drivers. Diesel vehicles have come a long way from the 1980s, when it was assumed that all diesels were large, noisy trucks that were environmentally disastrous. But they’ve come a long way since then! Although there have been scandals in recent years (looking at you, Volkswagen), there are many benefits of owning a diesel vehicle.
Benefits of Diesel Vehicles
First off, it’s not hard to find a diesel mechanic near me. If you are in Lake Oswego or the surrounding areas of Beaverton, Tigard, West Linn, Wilsonville, Tualatin, Mountain Park, Sherwood, or Portland, you never have to worry about “where’s diesel repair near me”. We’re located just off of the I-5, at Lower Boones Ferry Rd and 63rd, making us a convenient stop for regular vehicle maintenance and repairs. Dan’s Auto Center has over thirty years in business and an expert team led by ASE Certified Master Technicians. We have experience both with diesel vehicles and a wide range of makes including foreign and domestic: Honda, Acura, Lexus, Nissan, Infiniti, Toyota, Subaru, GM, Chevrolet, Ford, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Mercedes, Volvo, Land Rover, and yes, Volkswagen.
Next, diesel vehicles get better fuel economy than regular gas vehicles. 25 to 30 percent better. That’s significant! It probably explains why diesel vehicles account for over half of all vehicle sales in Europe. You can expect better mileage with similar fuel costs – diesel and regular gas are usually very similar in price in Oregon, although prices fluctuate.
Finally, diesel engines are more durable and last longer. If you bring your car in for regular diesel repair and maintenance to our Lake Oswego shop, you can expect that it will drive longer and provide higher resale value than its regular gas counterparts. Diesels have no spark plugs or distributors, so you don’t have to worry about ignition tune ups, but you will still need oil changes, belt replacements, brake fluid flushes, and other maintenance.
Don’t ever worry about Googling “diesel mechanic near me”. Come see your local experts at Dan’s Auto Center for diesel repair at our Lake Oswego shop. We look forward to keeping you and your diesel safely on the road for years!
