Nick is the best!!

I highly recommend them to anyone. They go over and beyond for everyone. The prices are affordable and they explain everything and make your experience safe and knowing you won’t be ripped off.

We worked with several automotive shops before coming to Nick's. It is now the only shop we go to. They do a wonderful job diagnosing the issue and fully explain so that you can make an informed decision. The cheapest place isn't always the best place, and in our experience we believe that Nick's is the best. The location is ideal for us because we have the ability to drop the car off, ride the train to/from work and then pick it up at night.

This was my first time visiting Nick’s for a regular oil change, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the service. It was prompt, courteous, and the supporting technology they use is especially helpful in understanding where your vehicle is at in the process and what they managed to find in the inspection. I’ll definitely be back!


— Google User Review

Once again, Nick and crew have surprised me with a bill that was way less than I expected; plus, they were on time. I also appreciate the regular email updates as they worked through the repair project. This is the way an auto repair shop should be run! I've recommended Nick's to friends, and am happy to hear that they experience the same professionalism that I do.


— Google User Review

I have always received honest, high-quality, professional service from Nick's Auto Care. I especially appreciate the online review of my appointment, showing what services were performed. The close-up photos of any concerns and needed repairs, and the instructional videos, are further proof that they care about me as a customer and my personal safety. Not only that, but they also care about my car and want it to last and operate smoothly and efficiently. I can't say enough about Nicks Auto Care. Even though I no longer live in Milwaukie, I will continue to take my car there to be serviced because, from my personal experience, they're the best.

5/30/19 I took my care to Nick's for the Spring Maintenance Special. The price was great and they check everything! I left with a sense of security. My car has received the best of care. Thanks, Nick and technicians.

Nick's has an extremely organized and proffessional operation. They we able to charge me $30 less than they quoted on a transmission fluid flush and scheduled a check-in a few days later to make sure everything was satisfactory.

Would recommend.

They are very honest and will not insist on something being repaired if it isn't vital. With my older car that's what I need when making repair decisions. They communicate well and estimate repair costs accurately.


— Google User Review

Honest service at a fair price. True story: I was there recently talking with someone in the waiting room and asked if they lived in the area. No, he said, I live across town. I asked him why he traveled all the way across town for auto care and he said that he'd always been treated fairly at Nick's and he's happy to travel a little longer for that kind of service. I agreed with him. I've always been treated fairly at Nick's. I'd travel across town for it, too.

I've been a regular here for several years now. I feel like my car problems matter, they are taken care of swiftly and I am always kept in the loop regarding cost and the time required for repairs. Straight forward, no-fuss business from my experience

I went to an auto repair chain and they charged me $100 to tell me that they couldn’t fix what was wrong with my car. I went to Nick’s and they told me that after test driving it and not being able to duplicate the problem, my car is perfectly fine and they had nothing to charge me for. The best customer service I have ever experienced! I am positive that next time Nick’s will be my first and only stop!

Nick's was very accommodating to my situation with having to do an emergency drop off without an appt. They definitely did an extensive and detailed inspection explaining what the problem was, what my vehicle needed,and why. They even sent pictures of damaged parts... it was nice to feel at ease knowing I was not being taken advantage of.

Honest and very reliable. Not only will they explain the cost before doing the work, they send you detailed information, and pictures involving your vehicle.

Nick's Auto Care provided great customer service! My car was repaired and ready to pick up within 24 hours. They can be trusted to give accurate diagnostics and not try to add extra charges for unnecessary services. The amount of my repair was what I was told it would be. I am very pleased with Nick's Auto Care. I felt that I was treated as a family member and will always take my car to Nick's Auto Care for any repairs.

Took my car in for a simple oil change along with a few concerns. Nick was very kind, friendly and professional. I called early in the day and they were able to fit my cars needs into their busy schedule. The oil change alone was a decent cost. Overall I plan to revist the shop for future oil changes and mechanical needs. Thank you Nick!


— Google User Review

Received advertisement in mail & stopped by to schedule appointment. Oil change done in less time than expected. Staff friendly and courteous! Will return.

While installing new headlight bulbs, the tech noticed one of my fog light assemblies was ready to fall out. Called shop whom installed 4 days earlier and was advised I had to wait over a month for remount. Nick offered to install and did so in less than a week time. Also had wife bring in her car for second opinion regarding new compressor for air conditioner. Will be using Nick's Auto Care for all of our auto issues.

They completed the work in a timely fashion and got me back in right away when I reported a weird noise coming from my new shock. Quickly fixed the issue and now my car no longer chirps.

I needed expert assistance in a timely manner with regards to my torsion bar settings from a previous control arm replacement (unrelated to his shop). Nick was the only one willing to see me in a decent time frame. I was initially concerned about being heavily overcharged, but he was honest, fair, and his crew did great work. I enjoy knowing there’s at least one honest mechanic in town. I’ll be going back, if needed.

Having had my vehicle serviced in three states and by even more mechanics, Nick's Auto Care has left the most positive impression. My car had many issues but I had a budget to keep. Nick and I settled on resolving the more pertinent issues and I never felt pressured into getting something done. Their inspection was very informative(an email was sent including checks on the passing services and things requiring attention with photo evidence). I received same day service too. My old Crown Vic is running much better now and I feel better driving it!

Nick's Auto Care is the only place I'll be taking my car too. Nick is kind, takes his time with you, ensures you understand what work needs to be done and how much it will cost.

It was my first time in and he was quick to respond to my cars needs.

At the end of my service I received a text link to my cars complete inspection. His team did courtesy top offs if of a couple fluids, took pictures of everything he completed it checked, showing exactly what work needed to be done with pictures showing why!

Easy to.understand car maintenance and a smile. You'll find at Nick's what you can't at the dealership!!!

Frustrating experience. Made an appt and said what I believed was wrong with the car, which turned out to be accurate. Had to call back twice the next day to get the update. Still another day to get the car, and none of the quotes line up with the invoice. A $100 inspection never mentioned, coolant refill never mentioned, Labor and parts don't line up together or separately with what I was told for overall. Only a little more than I expected, but confusing to understand.

Nick’s Auto Care is a rarity in the best way. I took my car there to get a last minute oil change and some minor repairs and they were able to squeeze me in even though I could tell they had a lot on their plate already. The final price ended up cheaper than what they quoted me, the staff explained exactly the work they did and how the price broke down, they were funny, attentive, and best of all, they clearly respected me as a customer. I never got that “taken advantage of” feeling of chain auto shops and they did better and faster work, too. If you’re in the area, this is the place you want working on your car, hands down

I was skeptical when I first came to Nick's, as I am with any new mechanic. I didn't feel good about how I was treated at another mechanic but I felt good about Nick.

You won't find better customer service at another shop. Give them a call!

Our car started smoking out the exhaust and I immediately went to Facebook on Oregon city chitchat to ask for recommendations for an honest mechanic. Nicks autobody came recommended by two people who raved about him. We called, made appointment, went in and from the moment we spoke on the phone I was impressed. Not only was he extremely polite and reassuring but very knowledgeable. I could go on and on but one thing that I have to mention. I gave Nick The go ahead to do ALL things that he quoted me for. Not just a problem that we went in for but he also noticed something about the brakes and air filter. I go in when the car is done, I look at the receipt and I noticed that the air filter and brakes were not on there, I ask why and he said "they were low but still good and I didn't want to replace them if they didn't need to be replaced." That to me, is the definition of an honest mechanic. He could've changed both and I never would've known the difference. He'll be our car guy from now on...he has definitely earned our business!

Nick's is everything we want in a car repair shop! Honest, qualified people who don't try to twist your arm into buying things you don't need. Cost for a used car check was more than half what the Honda dealer wanted to charge and I believe they did more.

Nick is very friendly and helpful. Great place to take all our cars. We've finally found a great mechanic! What a relief.

These guys are amazing. I have a 1998 Ford F150 that was in serious need of maintenance. I literally pulled it in smoking due to some transmission issues. They put in a lot of work to find the obsolete parts needed for the unique configuration of my truck, did a phenomenal job with the work performed, and were very reasonable with their pricing.

I have had some problems finding honest or good mechanics in the past. I usually had to make the choice between the two. These guys have integrity and are very talented. They obviously put a lot of care into their work.

They are my go to guys from now on.

Was looking to purchase a used diesel 1 ton truck from a car lot in Portland. I live in Stockton Ca. So I contacted Nick and made an appointment, and instructed the auto dealer to drop off the car.

Nick"s did a VERY thorough inspection.

Bottom line Nick's Auto Care not only saved me a trip, he saved me from blowing a pile of money and losing my car in the trade.

Very reasonable rate and super super honest.

You folks up there are blessed to have such an honest and thorough auto care center in your neighborhood.

Nick, again I thank You so much!!

Nick's has been great for us. It's close to home, reasonably priced, and Nick is super friendly and knowledgeable. They've always found and addressed the real problem and done the work right the first time. Why three stars then? In performing the most recent repair to our van, the technician cracked the grill as he was lying across it. Nick said no problem, he'd replace it with a salvage yard grill. I called weekly for two months to ask about it and though Nick promised to make good on it he never did. It's a minor crack and an old van, but it's more the principle of the thing. We might still return to Nick's if/when we need a mechanic but there's definitely been a loss of trust.

UPDATE: Though we would have been happy with a used replacement, Nick ended up buying a brand new grill for us since his salvage yard contacts never came through with one. They had it installed in just a few hours and it looks great. I will continue to recommend Nick's Auto Care to anyone looking for quality, reasonably priced service.

This place is amazing and the owner rocks.

I called Midas (big mistake) I asked how much to replace the drivers side low beam headlight bulb because mine was out. I was told by Midas that it would cost +-$200 to replace, because they would have to remove the bumper and I would have to replace the other headlight too (even though it was working he said to replace the working light too, greedy much!) I said I bought the correct bulb and midas was like they only use proper bulbs not ones bought in the store by customers. I told him I had a 2012 Kia Soul so it can’t be that complicated. He was just like well it’s not easy. I said NO THANKS!!

So I found this gem Nicks Auto Care and they changed the bulb in a few minutes and did not charge me a dime. He believes in being honest and not ripping people off for greed. So thank you Nicks Auto care you have a brand new loyal customer in me :D you made my day!!!

Honest, hardworking, genuine - just a few of the words that come to mind when I think of Nick's.

New to Portland we searched for a good mechanic and came up short handed until we found this place. Nick's Auto Care has out done our expectations! They are honest, fair priced, and have the most excellent customer service I have ever experienced at an auto shop. They know their stuff and treat you with respect. I have been telling everyone about this place, if you have any questions they are very helpful and really seem to care about making your vehicle work properly. Nick's does it right.

Went in for an oil change because I saw the good reviews. I also asked for a quote to replace my thermostat and change my coolant since I already had the thermostat in the car, but decided to stick with just an oil change. They were very busy, but were able to squeeze me in. When I went back to pick it up I was informed they changed my thermostat and coolant for me anyways! No charge! Who does that? No one does... I tried to pay for it, but they wouldn't let me. Best experience at a shop in my whole life. I'll be back many times

Nick is the most honest mechanic I have ever met. I had my brakes go out and he told me what was wrong and didn't overcharge me for them. Other shops would have sold me more than I needed and then charged me through the nose. I am raising a daughter on my own and just got a job. Nick helped me get the things fixed and didn't tell me other things were wrong I didn't need fixed right now. It is refreshing to bring your car to a mechanic you can trust. Tell your friend's you can trust Nick and get your car fixed right from an honest person. Thank-you Nick for all your help.

When you're new to an area it seems the most difficult people to find are dentists, doctors and an honest, reliable, knowledgeable auto mechanic. I found my doctor, still looking for my dentist and found my mechanic. Everything about working with Nick's has been picture perfect from their attitude to their abilities.

My car was coming from a warm place to here, a cooler and wetter place. Nick's checked out the entire car while I waited. Ended up needing a new battery which I suspected anyway, and that was it. I love my car and am pretty particular about who works on it; from now on, it will be Nick's Auto Care, no one else. I trust these guys.

I couldn't have asked for a better experience with a mechanic. Our car was repaired for less than the quote and earlier than expected. Nick was incredibly polite and honest, even walking out to meet us as we pulled in. When he called me to give me his estimate for the repair, there was literally no question I had that he couldn't give me an immediate answer and quote for.

It's a great feeling when you've found a mechanic that you trust, which seems rare these days. I will absolutely be coming back to Nick's shop, and would recommend him to anyone who's looking for a solid garage.

I have to say Nick's Auto is the most honest mechanic shop. I had a check engine light pop on so I had to find a repair shop.

Three things you worry about when looking for an auto repair shop: will they tell me the truth when it comes to necessary repairs, will they charge too much, and are their techs experienced enough to diagnose my car's issue and fix it the first time.

My wife and I have taken both our cars to Nick's for the passed year and we've never had a bad experience. The work is always timely and thorough, and he's always willing to be flexible with our schedule. Most recently, my wife's car broke down and wasn't worth repairing. He's been extremely helpful in letting us leave it on his lot until we could get it towed away, as well as giving us good recommendations on a company to help us find a new car. His prices are always fair and he never does any work without consulting you first.

Back in Illinois, I always had my father to work on my car or at least send me to his mechanic if he can't fix it, but since we moved 2,000 miles away, it's nice to have a mechanic I can trust.

I was on the way back home for a long trip and heard some concerning noises coming from my car. I stopped here to make sure I was good for the next 500 miles and the owner listened to me describe the noise and told me that it was probably just the A/C compressor and I should be fine for the drive. I really loved the honesty and didn't try to"take a look"just to charge an inspection fee. If I lived in the area I know this would be my mechanic

I've been a customer of Nick's for about a year now and they've done a multitude of work on my aging beast of a vehicle. From oil changes, brakes, to major engine repair, it seems they have worked on just about everything on my car.

I have been very impressed with the professionalism and quality of the work done each and every time. If ever there has been any question or anything I didn't understand, they have taken the time to walk me through it and explain everything without any hesitation.

It's very hard to find a reliable repair shop that is both close to your home, and can get you in and out quickly. Nick's has proven to me time and time again that I have found the right place and the several referrals I've given to others have been equally happy..

Once nice thing is that Nick's is located across the street from the Orange Line Max stop, so if you have to get back to town, or just want to take a one stop run to Milwaukie and grab coffee or lunch and wait for your oil change.......you couldn't ask for a simpler solution. There's also a great walking path behind the Max station to stretch your legs.

Overall, Nick's has my full support. They have been honest with me when they cannot find parts, and offer solutions to help get me back on the road.

I couldn’t say enough good things about this place if I tried. The mechanics are funny, attentive, and fast, and you don’t ever get the feeling you’re being talked down to or taken advantage of. I took my car in for an oil change and some minor repair and they were far and away the best auto shop experience I’ve ever had. They walked me through the exact price and reason for every thing they did on the car, they ended up charging me a few bucks cheaper than the original quote, and they did it really quickly, too. It seems like people are always looking for an honest and transparent mechanic. Nick’s clearly is the answer

I needed to ditch the van's rusted-on ball hitch to accommodate a standard 2X2 receiver. I like to do things myself, but after several hours over several days using many tools plus quite a few swear words, I gave up and took it to Nick's Garage in Milwaukie (Oregon) this morning. The mechanic had the rusty ball hitch off in five minutes and didn't charge a thing. (I did leave a tip.) This is the third time I've used Nick's for various repairs, and every time they've done the job right, done it promptly, and charged much less than the competitors would have. It's like returning to a small town 1960s shop. Couldn't be more satisfied.

This place is awesome. Nick is always honest with me and goes the extra mile. My old car had so many problems but he was always really reasonable and told me straight up to just get a new car instead of throwing away more money. With my new car he's making sure i keep it in top shape. Plus he's just super nice and I've never felt intimidated by all the car talk - he explains everything so i understand what's going on. Best mechanic!

Love your shop. I have been bringing my cars to your shop for 2 years now and I would not go anywhere else. You just have ever always done great work and are always so friendly. Thank you for all you do to help your customers!!

A very honest shop. They told me what was needed and what was not needed. They did not pressure me and were happy to do whatever work I decided to have done. I will recommend them to anyone!

Seriously honest, hard working and trustworthy mechanics... Nick's Auto Care is now the only place I will go to have any and all work done on my Pathfinder.

One of the most honest auto care shops I've been to. Super trustworthy! I always know Nick's will take good care of my car and give it to me straight.

They fixed my Honda Element for 1/4 the cost that I was quoted from the Dealer. I had my axle repaired, headlight and oil leak.

This shop location was ideal for me, because it's on the Max Orange Line. Having public transit nearby makes all the difference and saves having to coordinate rides.

My only complaint was that I had to call them multiple times to find out what was going on. However Nick was very kind and accommodating.

I've been a customer of Nick's for about a year now and they've done a multitude of work on my aging beast of a vehicle. From oil changes, brakes, to major engine repair, it seems they have worked on just about everything on my car.

I have been very impressed with the professionalism and quality of the work done each and every time. If ever there has been any question or anything I didn't understand, they have taken the time to walk me through it and explain everything without any hesitation.

It's very hard to find a reliable repair shop that is both close to your home, and can get you in and out quickly. Nick's has proven to me time and time again that I have found the right place and the several referrals I've given to others have been equally happy..

Once nice thing is that Nick's is located across the street from the Orange Line Max stop, so if you have to get back to town, or just want to take a one stop run to Milwaukie and grab coffee or lunch and wait for your oil change.......you couldn't ask for a simpler solution. There's also a great walking path behind the Max station to stretch your legs.

Overall, Nick's has my full support. They have been honest with me when they cannot find parts, and offer solutions to help get me back on the road.

My car basically broke down right in front of their shop. They were quick to find the part I needed to get my car fixed and wasn't horribly priced either! Made it perfect that the max stop was right in front of their shop too.

Been going to Nicks for years. Locally owned by Nick of course and I think his son Nick. They always do a solid job and just recently fixed my husbands truck in less than 18 hours after the alternator went out. Skip the big chain shops and support our neighbors and local businesses. Fair prices and great work!


— Yelp User Review

They did some work on our diesel trucks for work.

Although it took forever the work was done well and the price was worth it.

Nick was very understanding and never got frustrated when I called daily to check on the truck.

Will use again for our other vehicles!

This is a 5-star place in a 3-star location and is a hidden gem as a result. Saved about 60% of Lexus dealer cost for same services to maintain my warranty. They were very professional, very efficient and did not try to sell me anything "extra". They are my "go-to" service shop now.


— Yelp User Review

Wow! My Prius needed its 30,000 mile check up. I was already unhappy with Toyota of Gladstone (after they charged me $89 for an oil change and quoted over $400 for the 30,000 mile check up) and I quit going to Toyota of Portland when they had changed management from Broadway Toyota for several reasons. I called a few Toyota dealerships for quotes: Toyota of Gladstone was by far the highest and Ron Tonkin Toyota was over $200 lower but had horrible reviews.

After researching I found that Nick's auto care had excellent reviews and we called and had an estimate for around $180 for the 30,000 mile check up. My husband stopped by to talk with them and liked them a lot and made an appointment, we dropped the car off, picked it up a few hours later and they only charged us $89 because they did what it needed and didn't charge for what it didn't need.

I am thrilled to find this place. Good, honest service. I am so grateful to all the Yelpers who helped us find Nick's.


— Yelp User Review

Went to see Nick on October 16, 2017. He had been recommended to me

by my daughter who had been very happy with the way he helped her.

I wanted him to check some work done by a dealership that I felt was not

done correctly. He confirmed that the work had been done. Had his mechanic go another step further to go out with me to double check the

noise problem I was experiencing. All this took several hours out of their

schedule but at the end, Nick said he would not charge me for something

he couldn't fix. How many times are you going to find people of this integrity

and true caring for their fellow man? I was very touched and grateful.

Nick has my vote. It refreshes my faith in humanity.

Thank You Nick and Staff.

Very Happy Customer,

Nick's ROCKS! Took my beloved 1992 Geo Metro in for minor maintenance and brake check and did I need a coolant change? Was braced for $1,000 worth of work (if brakes needed). Got Nick's call saying, "Nothing major needed, cost for various small things $118." WONDERFUL to have a reliable honest no BS mechanic! And the shop is just across the street from our new Orange Line so I can just hop two stations to get home and back. I am SO completely thrilled and simply cannot recommend Nick's highly enough. THANK YOU Nick!


— Yelp User Review

I took my truck into Nicks for what I hoped was a bad water pump. It turned out to be a blown head gasket. I was pleased with the quoted price for the repairs and added a few other things, like brakes, too be done. They got my truck done quickly and the customer service was excellent. I take good care of my vehicles and I am happy to have found a reputable repair shop for my maintenance needs.



— Yelp User Review

OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE! We are from out of town and needed help and Nick was there for us. Nick's service is second to none. This auto shop really knows what they are doing and Nick is an HONEST mechanic. For real. That is nearly impossible to find. I called nearly every shop in Portland and most tried to take advantage. We truly wish Nick had a shop near Santa Cruz, We would go no where else. If your looking for a competent, professional and HONEST mechanic, DON'T HESITATE .

These guys are great ! I am happy that I found my Portland mechanic!!! super friendly service, honest prices and care :) what more can you ask for ?? Thank you Nicks !!


— Yelp User Review

Only serviced my vehicle at Nick's once, but, I'm totally impressed. Quick, fair prices, quality customer care... oh!... and they fixed my car too! :D

I'll be back!


— Yelp User Review

I've dealt with my fair share of mechanics (who hasn't?). Had a car that we needed to know if it was worth having some things done on it or if we needed a new car. Nick is probably one of the most honest guys and friendly guys I've met, not just counting mechanics. Called before a single penny was was charged with exactly what items were needed in detail. There was none of the "well, this is worn out", or if "you don't do this, you'll be looking at more expenses soon" crap you usually hear. Told me what I could skip if I needed to due to costs and still keep the engine going and the car driving safe. He was out of the shop when I picked up the car but his son, also named Nick, was there and was also a super nice guy. Great family place, will be going back.


— Yelp User Review

I was very impressed with Nick's. My old SUV needed a new transmission which would have cost more than the car was worth. Nick was upfront and honest about cost and didn't pressure me in any direction. When I decided the repair wasn't worth it he fixed the car up for me enough so I could drive it home and didn't charge me for all the time his team spent working on it. I will definitely be returning for future auto repairs.


— Yelp User Review

I'm probably in too much shock to even write this review. I brought my Toyota pickup in because the exhaust sounded like a dying Harley. I also asked Nick to check the clutch because I'm an idiot and like to give mechanics ways to cheat me. Then in drive home and got stoned, waited for the call that would tell me whether I'd be eating ramen the rest of the month.

Nick called and quoted me 5 something. I don't know. All I know is it was a whole lot better than my mechanic friend back in MD guessed. Good enough. I forgot to ask about the clutch. He said it would be ready tomorrow.

He called again a few hours later, said they were done. He said he had good news, I waited for him to say "and bad news." He didn't. He said they'd been wrong about where the leak was coming from and had fixed it for 200 less than his quote.

And nothing was wrong with my clutch.

Let's review. A day early. $200 cheaper. And honest about mistakes?

Like I said, I'm in shock. Take your car to Nick.

I needed new brakes so I went to nicks based on yelp reviews. He quoted me one price, but when I picked up my car it was about $200 less than his original quote. Turns out that once they started working and taking apart my brakes, fewer parts were actually needed than he thought. I came back a couple weeks later to have 3 belts replaced as he suggested and I knew I needed. Nick even called me a week later just to make sure my car was still running well. I have finally found my new repair shop!


— Yelp User Review

Once again I am here to sing the praises of Nick's Auto Care.

These days it is hard enough to find an honest repair shop to trust with your car and as a woman, it is even more difficult.

I had my brakes done here after being quoted over 1100.00 by another shop that claimed to be "honest" in their title and even tried to sell me on high priced financing for the job.

Nick's charged me less than half of that and got the job done in a day.

Just over a year later my brakes started making that same scraping noise. I took my car in immediately and Nick assured me they'd get to the bottom of it. Just a couple of hrs later he said that sadly my calipers had failed and they needed to be replaced. I was shocked since I had just had them done!

Later when I called back to check he said that the warranty was expired on my calipers but he fought with the company and got them to replace them anyway. My rotors also needed work again but he said that they would cover the cost and all I needed to cover was the cost of the brake pads. This is UNHEARD of! They did not have to do this and they did! Not only did they replace the calipers, rotors, and brake pads, they didn't charge me for the labor. Any other shop would have said "too bad for you" and charged me. But they didn't.

Nick's is an honest, family run business and not only have they earned my utmost respect and gratitude, they have gained a customer for life.

Thank you to the staff at Nick's for taking care of me as always and I am so thankful for their wonderful customer service, and there is NO other place I would trust with my car.

Thank you Nick's!!!!

This place is seriously one of the best places to go for car troubles. The owner is very nice and honest and the people there are willing to work with you. They don't try to scam you at all. I recommend it!

This is by far the best "mom and pop" (or "pop and son" as it were) auto care place I could've ever found in the Portland area. They do thorough, quality work at affordable rates, they diagnose car issues and maintenance honestly and ethically, and Nick Sr. (who runs the desk) has outstanding customer service from his years of experience, giving detailed communication (both in person and in follow-up emails) about what my car needs. Nick's also offers plentiful coupons throughout the year--they understand that every little bit helps.


— Yelp User Review

I've had several experiences with Nick's Auto Care. First took my Honda Civic Hybrid in and found out my Hybrid Battery was going, $7,000 bill. Although Nick's didn't fix it, they correctly diagnosed it. Honda stepped up and replaced it for $250 (a whole different review).

Then my sister asked if I knew of a reliable mechanic, so I passed Nick's on to her. She raved about her experience. So when my son was in town and said, 'Mom, your struts and shocks need to be replaced" we took it back to Nick's Auto Care. It was an expensive $1,000 repair.

Where I think Nick's Auto Care stands above the rest is, he held the price despite discovering that they had to remove my main battery to do the work. None of their reference manuals mentioned this part of the procedure. I know it took them much longer than expected, they ended up keeping the car overnight. Yet Nick stuck to his original bid.

Now that is classy!! I love giving my business to people who have integrity.

Thank you Nick and crew. We'll definitely be back.


— Yelp User Review

New to the area and needed a mechanic. Received a flyer in the mail -decided to give them a shot. Took my car there for routine checkup and maintenance and an oil change. Nick's Auto Care is a great trustworthy source. I'm definitely going back. Treated me fair and with respect. Much appreciated.

Will definitely go back super honest and my truck is like new thanks Nick and team see you in 3000 miles

We have taken our vehicles to Nicks on several occasions. They are very friendly, honest and reasonably priced!! Highly recommend!


— Yelp User Review

If i could give 10 stars I would. Nick was so nice, honest, and accommodating. I was worried that i destroyed my engine because all the oil ran out of it and it was making a horrible noise while I was driving. I had my car towed there after my husband looked through reviews and found Nick's. I'm so glad I did! Not only did he fix my car, but what really impressed me was how empathetic and honest he was. Pretty rare in a mechanic in my experience. I'm not a big fan of dealing with mechanics (not as bad as dentists, but dread it nonetheless) because I don't speak car very well, but I didn't feel as though that put me at a disadvantage here. Just a really good experience all around. even if the outcome had been different, and my engine had been destroyed, I'd like to think I'd still be giving this place 5 stars just based on the customer service.

I brought my 2011 Ford to Nicks shop because he was recommended by a friend. When I walked in to drop off the vehicle for repair Nicks father (conveniently also named Nick) greeted me with a smile and knew exactly what I needed to get done. These guys are living the American dream, father and son owning their own company and doing what they love, that is fairly obvious by their knowledge on all cars and parts available. The price was very fair and Nick provided a loaner for transportation. I took a stack of biz cards from Nick to put in my own store. Spot on job by these folks, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.


— Yelp User Review

Decided to try and find a mechanic that wasn't your typical chain such as Midas and jiffy lube. Came across this on Yelp and liked the reviews. What caught my eye was its a family owned father/son company and I'm all about supporting local businesses. First impressions, they are honest, professional, and fairly priced. So far I've had my car serviced twice by them and have zero complaints. Car is running great and I HIGHLY recommend them to my friends and family.

Nick provided prompt and expert advice on 2 Lexus LX470 vehicle inspections. He saved us thousands of dollars in repairs if we had invested in these cars. I am so thankful we found Nick's Auto Care. I look forward to using their repair service should the need arise.


— Yelp User Review

I don't know a lot about cars so getting work done can be confusing but I've never felt more comfortable getting work done on my car than at Nick's. Nick was polite, friendly and even gave me a follow up phone call to see if I had any questions. I will be back.
