Not all maintenance and repairs are created equal…

For example, a “tune-up” may mean different things to different technicians. Prices will vary depending on whether the tune-up is a Basic, Major, or Performance type. Each requires additional parts and labor to complete. Ask us for a quote on what you need. Today’s engines have computers that control various operations of your vehicle and generally make them run more efficiently. That is if the computer is working. When it’s not, we have the tools and the training to diagnose and fix what is wrong.

Reliability and Performance Experts

We offer the following services to ensure the reliability and performance of your vehicle: Floor mats, seat covers, covers are installed before the repair even begins, to keep your car exactly as it was before we worked on it.

Preventive Services

Oil changes, brake inspections, tune-ups, filter changes, fluid level checks (brakes, power steering, transmission, windshield cleaners, etc.), coolant and antifreeze levels, battery fluids, tire pressures, and belt condition. We can provide the same mileage maintenance services as your dealer and many of their repairs without voiding your warranty.

Necessary Repairs

Brake pad replacement, fuel system adjustments, timing belt replacement, and heating and cooling systems repairs. Each of these maintenance tasks contributes to the overall health and longevity of your vehicle. Following the manufacturer’s maintenance schedule and addressing issues promptly can prevent more significant problems and potentially save you money in the long run.

Choose a Green Shop

Happy Danes Inc. is an environmentally friendly shop; we were certified as one of Bend’s very first eco Biz shop over 20 years ago. What this means is that we have an extensive list of shop practices that help protect the thing we all love in Central Oregon, and that is Central Oregon itself!

Some of what we do is recycle used antifreeze, buy recycled bulk antifreeze, have excess waste oil recycled, make our own windshield washer fluid, recycle or reuse plastic bottles, recycle cardboard, limit the use of one time aerosol cans by utilizing cans that we fill with compressed air, moved to mostly paperless shop to avoid waste paper, if paper is used we recycle it when done, and many more practices that we have refined for over 20 years in Central Oregon.
