I first dealt with Clay when I moved or OR back in 2001. I bought a Subaru from him. At the time he was buying cars at auction, repairing whatever they needed. When I had my mechanic check it out, the verdict was a strong "yes, buy this car". It served me well. A couple years later, Clay bought the same service station I'd been using and I've been a Clays customer ever since. I've also bought another car from them for my sister. I recommend Clays to everyone I know. I feel they are honest and they help me anticipate costs. "you don't need to fix this now, but we should think about it in the next six months or so."
