Working on a large variety of different makes and models takes an experienced mechanic because not all engines are built alike. The ASE certified technicians at Ken Van Damme’s Automotive are carefully selected for their breadth of knowledge on foreign cars. Our foreign auto repair includes everything from:
Difficult diagnostics that other shops can’t solve are no problem for us. Our expertise in foreign auto repair has earned us a reputation as a trusted name in Portland. So, whether you have a classic foreign vehicle or a brand new model, our repair facility has the technology to quickly diagnose the problem. From engine problems to suspension, radiator repair, brakes and much more, our technicians have your foreign auto repair solution.
We have a vast supply of parts to minimize your wait time, but if there is something your vehicle needs that we don’t have in stock, we are able to quickly get it in.
The specialized knowledge that foreign auto repair requires can make it difficult to find qualified technicians. We understand why people love their cars! Trust our team to treat your foreign car like it was our own prized possession. From getting a routine tune up to more complicated engine repair, we ensure your foreign car, truck, van, or service vehicle gets the specific parts and service it needs.
German vehicles, for example, come with some pretty advanced engineering. Some models require less oil than Japanese cars, and parts are usually placed in different areas. Shops that don’t service Swedish cars might not have the right dealer-grade test equipment and tools to solve an issue with your Volvo.
Our technicians understand the latest manufacturer recommendations to help you stay up to date on parts that are ready for replacement. We do all our work in line with what the manufacturer specifies, so you can count on your repairs running smoothly. All work is guaranteed so you can feel confident that your ride will be comfortable and sound when you drive off into the Portland sunset.
We offer upfront, honest estimates and always wait for your approval before beginning any work. Our technicians are happy to take the time to explain the repairs your vehicle needs. Don’t expect us to throw technical jargon at you; we will answer any of your questions in plain language you can understand. It’s our goal to make you feel comfortable in your understanding of the repair process—no surprises and no hidden fees!
