Preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure your vehicle stays reliable, and lets you avoid major repairs as well as the expenses that come with them. At Marque Motors, we provide a complete preventative maintenance program, and carry all the necessary parts and expertise to take care of the little jobs that let you avoid the big ones. Choose from a comprehensive range of the fluids, oils, filters, and belts that your vehicle needs to keep running happily and healthily. Relax while your ride is inspected by our highly-trained technicians, and rest assured that it'll keep running smoothly for miles and miles.
The first part of our preventative maintenance program deals with your vehicle's fluids. Your car needs these fluids to keep running smoothly and prevent overheating. Most of our fluid change services are completed quickly so you can get back on the road in Portland, OR. Our technicians are happy to monitor and refill your engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, brake fluid, anti-freeze, power steering and wiper fluids. We also perform checks on your radiator to ensure there are no small leaks caused by stones and other road debris.
The next area of our program deals with the filters in your car. Whether filtering oil, fuel, or air, your car's engine and drivetrain rely on pure ingredients free from power-robbing particles. Your vehicle's fuel system, for example, wants only the purest gasoline or diesel. When microscopic particles build up in the system over time they reduce its efficiency and cause issues like decreased gas mileage. The same goes for your engine's air filter. An engine needs a mix of fuel and air to create combustion, and that can't happen if your motor can't breathe. Regularly changing your car's filters will prevent this from occurring. Marque Motors will make sure all your car's filters are flowing smoothly and clear, as well as the often-overlooked cabin air filter which can make a huge difference in how pleasant a car is to be inside.
Tire balancing is an important area of preventative maintenance where we excel. If your car's tires are out of balance, they could be putting undue strain on components in the suspension, braking, and drivetrain systems, which can cost you greatly further down the road. Ensuring a smooth ride with professionally balanced wheels and tires is a much cheaper, easier, and safer way to make sure your car stays on the road, while ensuring a long life for your tires.
Your car's timing belts are extremely important to examine during the course of preventative maintenance. There are a number of events that need to take place for one full revolution of your car's engine. These belts ensure that they all line up with each other, and occur at exactly the right moment. Should the belts become damaged or break, the events can fall out of sync and happen at the wrong time, which can be seriously detrimental to the health of your engine and your car overall. Marque Motors ensures that all your car's belts are healthy, and that all of those events keep happening at exactly the right time.
If you want Marque Motors to make sure that your vehicle is well-equipped to continue transporting you safely for years to come, call us at 503-293-5386, or visit us in Portland, OR so we can schedule a time to take a look at it!
Marque Motors was recommended to me by several of my 'German Sport car owning' friends. Kurt was very generous with his time to help me understand the differences of the cars that I am researching to purchase (Porsche vs. Audi). He gave me some excellent pointers that I would not have thought about before pursuing a purchase. I will definitely bring the car to Marque for a full pre-purchase inspection when I identify it, and any service and repairs as well. I believe they are an excellent resource!
I've taken a number of Porsches to Kurt over the past 15 years or so. They do careful work, give great advice, and have been very reasonably priced.
I was recommended Marque Motors for a pre-purchase inspection on a Porsche Boxster in Portland. I don't live in the area and hadn't actually seen the car myself, so the inspection was really important to me. Kurt was great and gave me all the information I needed to make an informed purchase, taking time to explain the report details over the phone and answering any questions I had. The inspection also cost me less than I was originally quoted which was nice! If I was anywhere near the area, I'd definitely be going back to Marque Motors for any work my car might need in the future.
We have been doing business with Marque Motors for a long time, this is a quality shop. All my customers that drive Porsches, BMWs, and Audis take their cars here and have nothing but GREAT things to say about their work. Kurt has a very good reputation and his staff knows what they are doing. Marque Motors is a full-service repair facility specializing in Porsche, Audi, BMW, MINI and Volkswagen. NOTE: SERVICE & REPAIR FACILITY SPECIALIST ! Service and Repair Shops that have been around a while are getting harder to find, this is one of the good ones. We are in the industry and my customers say this is a great shop, and I agree.
Kurt and crew always have done what they say, when and for the amount agreed to. They serviced our 1999 Audi A4 for the last 13 years, and I would use them again, and recommend them highly.
Marque Motors was recommended to me about 10 years ago. Nothing but the highest praise was commented about his business. I have owned several Porsches and I would not trust anyone else with these vehicles. The quality of his work is excellent and prices are extremely fair.
I've been using Marque Motors for Porsche service for the last 15 years. My '84 Carrera was serviced by them for routine maintenance when required. I recently had a "pre-buyers" inspection done for a 997.2. I had a few questions about my car so he brought me into the shop while the car was on the lift and James (the tech working on my car) gave me a good tour of the vehicle. I have always been treated very well at Marque Motors. I always have a clear understanding of what I want and what the car requires when I have maintenance work done here. I feel fortunate to have found a great local shop and a local small business I can support with confidence and pride. My kind of people! Thanks guys!
I have been going to Marque Motors for 10 years and I wouldn't trust my cars to anyone else. The best mechanics and best customer service. Kurt and his team are the absolute best!
Took a BMW in for a pre-purchase inspection (which they let me setup super quick). They were great, prompt with the turn around time and gave me all the information I needed. I will be going in shortly to get a couple of things sorted out with the new car!
Brought in a Porsche Cayenne S for some basic maintenance, good friendly people working there, reasonable price, and good work. Thanks!
They were able to accommodate my schedule and get me in in a timely manner. The staff were friendly. Service was timely and the price was great. You can tell they care about their customers and aren't out just to make money. I even got a follow-up call a few weeks later.
Honest, reliable. It seems to be a rarity these days to find a shop that doesn't try to badger you into unnecessary repairs. This shop tells you what's going on and when, if, and how much it's gonna take to keep you on the road.
I took my car here for the DEQ certification. They were extremely efficient, quick and very helpful - even providing step-by-step guide for the on-line renewal process. Makes me wish I had a Porsche or Audi to bring to them for upkeep!! Highly recommend!!
Went to the shop for a DEQ certification. They were fast, friendly, and did the test for no charge. Said they do it for free as a service for their customers, even though I have a Subaru and they don't service Subarus. Almost makes we want to go buy an Audi or Porsche so I can be a customer here.
Got our DEQ testing done in 5 minutes. Also explained step by step what to do next. All at no cost!
Thanks for the quick service and hospitality!
So I buy a 928 in San Francisco and drive all the way to Portland before it breaks down. I have it towed to Marque after getting a recommendation from a PCA member. Despite never meeting me...Marque took it in like it was family, fixed the multiple problems and sent me on my way. I made it to Redmond and it broke down again. (It is, after all, a 928.) Though it is unknown what caused one of the 'fixes' to not 'take' and it is not clear in any way that it was any fault of Marque (!)...they paid (in full!) for the subsequent repair at a Bend Porsche specialist without my asking. I will forever be indebted to Marque and hope to again do business with them. They have my highest esteem!
Carl and his team are great. They've taken great care of my VW Golf and are generous with their time explaining options and their diagnoses when my car needed service.
I went here for DEQ Too! services only because they were close. Boy was I happy with the service. I didn't need an appointment. It seemed a little busy when I walked in but I was greeted immediately and then they took care of everything for me. I barely had time to open my email on my phone! They walked me through what I have to do from here to get my stickers. All in all an incredible service and so much better than driving across town to sit in a long line.
This is the best place to get your DEQ Too Vehicle Emissions Test - great service and very friendly!
Stopped in for DEQToo service. Great people, fast service. Really impressed with their operation!
I had a DEQ emissions test done at Marque Motors and the service was prompt and efficient. The price was great! I strongly recommend Marque.
Great place to get an emissions test. Friendly people, a very good experience.
Kind and thoughtful staff. Helped my wife take care of her DEQ emissions test at no charge. Would absolutely use their services in the future!
I went there today for a DEQ test, they were nice, competent and fast (and they have a cute dog in the office!)
DEQ Testing Here! Very happy with quick and friendly service from Marque Motors - definitely recommend. Friendly dog Niko to boot!
Great service, can't recommend enough! Came in to have my car checked for DEQ, was in and out in 5 minutes. They didn't charge me, and I even got to pet their cute shop dog. Satisfied customer.
DEQ Service was quick & easy! Friendly Staff!
Marque Motors is fantastic, did a DEQ on my Prius, in and out in 5 minutes and No Charge!
