Autobahn Imports : Auto Repair and Parts Pricing Policy.

At Autobahn Imports we make a serious attempt to keep the surprise element out of our loyal and dedicated customers Invoice. We accomplish this by quoting the repair cost ( from our industry standard labor rate guide ) upfront and seek your consent before proceeding to repair your vehicle.

 

All Auto Repair Shops make a profit when they buy and sell a part for your car, during the process of repairing your car. Profit margin varies from shop to shop and as a consumer, you are entitled to ask the percentage of profit the shop makes on any given part. At Autobahn Imports we effectively remove the parts price surprises by adding a fixed percentage of profit on all the parts we sell. We also do market research to stay competitive with our parts pricing.

 

In addition, we also warranty our parts prices to be the lowest by offering refunds, if you were to find the identical part by any other seller. This price matching is nothing new in the industry and it is widely practiced by all major retailers. Conditions for refund are the part should have been manufactured by the same manufacturer and it is not on inventory liquidation sale.

 

We have implemented these pricing measures to ensure our dedicated and loyal clients will receive quality repair services and parts from a consistent pricing structure while eliminating the Auto Repair Shop Invoice surprises.

 

Happy Motoring from the staff at Autobahn Imports.

Shop owners beware.

An email scam going around to scam the garage owners. Protect yourself from the internet based scams.

From : Roy Martin  : roymartinlove@yahoo.com

the estimate is reasonable by me and when the car is delivered i will come and pick it up whenever its ready meaning i want you to take your time to put the brakes in proper shape. I will be like to make a deposit with my credit card and i will like to make a deposit of 500 dollars prior the arrival of the vehicle and i will be needing a little favor from you,like i said earlier the Porsche is currently with the shipper and i would have loved to pay him myself but he does not have access to a credit card machine,the favor i need from you is to run 1300 dollars on my card then you remove the 500 dollars deposit and help me send the remaining to the shipper in so that he will be able to deliver the vehicle to you,he accepts upfront payment,kindly get back to me with my credit card details you will need for the payment and i will be glad to provide the information,also get back to me with your full address that he will deliver the vehicle to.Regards.

Clutch Repair in Eugene (541) 688-2227

 Clutch Repair in Eugene by Autobahn Imports.

Clutch repair for a Porsche 996 model at Autobahn Imports. It took 30 plus hours to remove and replace the clutch component in this vehicle at out Auto Repair Shop in Eugene. Why it took so long ? This car has hoses running back and forth from front to the rear of the vehicle and every thing needs to be disconnected to remove the engine/ transmission assembly from the chassis. Not some thing we recommend to any do it yourselfers. The car only had 50k and this is the third clutch kit being installed. It is fair to say clutches do not last very long in these cars.

Timing Belt Repair Service in Eugene

Timing Belt Repair Service in Eugene by Autobahn Imports.

Timing belt replacement is the “must-do” service operation which every car owner should know about. Along with that knowledge, we should be aware of whether our engine is considered an interference engine or not. These two bits of information can, at a minimum, save us from unexpected breakdown and in the extreme can help us avoid thousands of dollars in repairs.

Without getting too technical, the synchronization between two internal engine parts (the crank and cam shafts) is accomplished with the help of the timing belt. In the process of these two parts moving the valves open and close in close proximity to the pistons. This constitutes an interference engine, because if the timing belt jumps a tooth on the sprocket on which it rides or the belt fails altogether the valves and pistons will “interfere” with each other.

This collision will cause major damage to the engine. The repair bill will, on older vehicles, often exceed the value of the car. On the other hand, a car whose engine is not configured this way will simply lose power or will not start. While this might be more desirable than facing huge repair costs, it is something that is better avoided if possible.

The motivation for preemptive replacement of the timing belt is obvious. But how do you know when to replace it? There is always the owner’s manual which will indicate mileage of anywhere from 50,000 to 90,000 miles.

Some other considerations relative to timing belt replacement are:

1)    Is the vehicle leaking any type of fluid that might degrade the belt, if so disregard the suggested replacement interval and replace the belt ASAP as well as repair the leak;

2)    Do you know the repair history of the vehicle if it is not verifiable err on the side of safety and replace the belt;

3)    Timing belt replacement can be labor intensive. Since the water pump is usually accessed in the same operation you might consider replacing the pump at the same time even if it doesn’t leak. You will save on labor and possibly prevent a Water pump replacement later on that will also necessitate the belt to be replaced again;

4)    To avoid subsequent failure consider replacing sprockets and tensioners that are part of the timing belt system. All components are sometimes sold as a kit and can be less expensive than purchasing them individually.

All service intervals should be followed in order to protect your investment and maintain the integrity of your warranty. In the case of the timing belt, it just makes sense.

Winter, your car and Driving Tips

Winter driving tips for motorists:

Keep your headlights clear with car wax! Just wipe ordinary car wax on your headlights. It contains special water repellents that will prevent that messy mixture from accumulating on your lights – lasts 6 weeks.

Squeak-proof your wipers with rubbing alcohol! Wipe the wipers with a cloth saturated with rubbing alcohol or ammonia. This one trick can make badly streaking & squeaking wipers change to near perfect silence & clarity.

Ice-proof your windows with vinegar! Frost on it’s way? Just fill a spray bottle with three parts vinegar to one part water & spritz it on all your windows at night. In the morning, they’ll be clear of icy mess. Vinegar contains acetic acid, which raises the melting point of water—preventing water from freezing!

Prevent car doors from freezing shut with cooking spray! Spritz cooking oil on the rubber seals around car doors & rub it in with a paper towel. The cooking spray prevents water from melting into the rubber

Fog-proof your windshield with shaving cream! Spray some shaving cream on the inside of your windshield & wipe if off with paper towels. Shaving cream has many of the same ingredients found in commercial defoggers.

De-ice your lock in seconds with hand sanitizer! Just put some hand sanitizer gel on the key & the lock & the problems solved!

Have your Auto Mechanic check your engine coolant for quality and quantity. Driving with inadequate coolant can cause severe damage to the engine.

About Auto Electrical Repair.

About Auto Electrical Repair.

The majority of a vehicle’s components these days are operated by electrical systems; something that is very different from previous decades. This can make many issues slightly harder to diagnose, especially for individuals who want to repair their vehicle themselves. However, in many cases, electrical problems are easy to repair. It’s important that individuals arm themselves with knowledge about their vehicle’s electrical systems, whether they want to attempt DIY auto electrical repair or have it repaired by a professional mechanic.

Summer driving tips

Auto Repair Eugene

MAKE SURE YOUR VEHICLE IS READY WITH THIS QUICK CHECKLIST:

Temperatures will reach over 100 degrees in parts of the country, and hot weather can really strain your battery. Protect yourself by checking to see if the posts and connections are free of corrosion. Just to be on the safe side, always pack a pair of jumper cables in the trunk.
Before you start racking up the miles on the odometer, make sure to check the oil. Changing your oil regularly is a great way to add thousands of miles to the life of your engine.
Every good road trip needs a great mix. So check your coolant/antifreeze levels. If the mixture isn’t the 50:50 water/coolant norm, you may not get the most performance out of your car.
Chances are at some point you’ll get stuck driving in a summer storm, so check your wipers and wiper fluid. If the blades are not wiping well or leaving streaks, that’s a clear sign it’s time to change them.
Inspect your belts and hoses. If you don’t remember when they were last replaced, it’s probably time for some new ones.

Lastly, check your tire pressure and tread. Not only will good tires improve gas mileage but the last thing you want to do is change a flat by the side of the road on a hot July day.
Need an item before you hit the road? Reserve it online and it’ll be waiting for you at your selected store.

Wherever you go this summer, Autobahn Imports wishes you a safe and happy Fourth of July.

Car Electrical Repair in Eugene, Oregon.

Car Electrical Repair in Eugene, Oregon.

Nowadays, car electrical repairs are getting more and more complicated and are already pressuring the boundaries of contemporary technology. However, they are fundamentally the same with their design three decades ago. An informative general idea of your vehicles electrical structure would be an excellent kick off. The most important mechanism of your cars electrical system, the battery and the alternator are explained underneath, in conjunction with some troubleshooting tips.

Your Cars Battery

Car’s battery is a storage piece of equipment and is employed to start the engine. The battery helps activate and control the electrical accessories set up and installed on your car. The battery is composed of six cells of heaped positive and negative lead plates, divided by insulators and wrapped up in electrolyte, which is a mixture of sulfuric acid and water. The six cells generate 2.1 volts producing an entirety of 12.6 volts. This kind of energy is stored energy and not produced energy.

On every occasion that a car show signs or symptoms of a charging or starting system breakdown, the most essential assessment and check that should be carried out first is a voltage and visual test of the battery. Realizing and learning the precise circumstance of the battery is the most excellent means to be acquainted with whether or not to suppose other system components can put off the redundant setting up of a starter or alternator, which cannot patch up the vehicle until the battery is up to bump off.

It is very recommended that you seek the help of auto electricians in order to fully be aware of the auto electrical repairs that should be done. Auto electrical repairs on batteries might be tricky that is why you should always have the backup of the professionals for this matter.

Your Cars Alternator

The cars alternator generates electricity which is employed to preserve battery storage charge and to lend a hand in operating the entire the electrical accessories, which includes the ignition and the engine control systems. The cars alternator is belt-driven by the engine and creates an alternating current which is transformed to twelve volts direct current by means of the rectifiers or diode bridge.

In contradiction to popular idea, an alternator does not continuously generate electricity. It sequences on and off at the same time as demand goes up and down. The battery bumpers it from the electrical demands of the car, and it merely works sufficiently to uphold system voltage. By the side of the highest point of effectiveness and competence and for its durability, the alternator is ought to be charging not exceeding half of the time.

By checking out all simple circuits first can to the highest degree decrease your troubleshooting time and needless replacement of your alternator or auto electrical repairs. You can always ask the assistance of the auto electricians in order for you to fully understand the different matters with regard to alternators and its maintenance.

All in all, your vehicles electrical structure should be entirely maintained and preserved every two years or at whatever time auto electrical repairs for any type of drive ability breakdowns occur.

Auto electrical repairs [http://www.caeba.com.au/product-services.html] refer to the entire array of restorative and continuance procedures performed on a vehicle’s electrical structure. This is the coordination that is accountable for amid other things, the car’s illumination organization, the car’s mechanical starting, the car’s audio systems and a lot more.

Autobahn Imports and Thumbtack.

Radiator Repair Eugene

A review of Autobahn Imports in Thumbtack.com

June 30, 2011

Just wanted to say that Autobahn Imports saved the day for us! Our BMW
broke down while we were traveling in the Eugene area, and we needed
emergency service on a weekend. Being from out of town, we called the
local BMW dealership, but they were of absolutely no help to us at
all!

Eventually we came upon Autobahn Imports – who was the only BMW
repair shop in Eugene open on a Saturday. The mechanic ‘Dan’ could not
have been more helpful or professional. He went out of his way to help
us, both with the repair and with getting us to the wedding we were in
town for. The repairs were completed ahead of the estimated time
frame, and we were on our way!

Three cheers for Autobahn Imports, and their entire staff. Goes to
show there are still folks in this World who care, and who come
through when you really need them!

sincerely,
Andrew Feldon
Portland, OR
