Some Words From Our Happy Clients

“Heckmann & Thieman Motors is the best repair shop I have ever taken any car into. I had them tune up my car and after a couple of weeks my car seemed to be running rough. I drove my car into them and explained the situation and a mechanic was pulled off of a car he was working on and was told to check out my car and correct the problem.In no time I was back on the road and everyone was smiling. I have never left Heckmann and Thieman without a smile on my face!”

“I just wanted to thank you for the perfect job you did on my classic van. Keeping vehicles this original and dependable through the use of correct quality parts and experienced technicians is hard to do these days.”
5 star review by Adam Johnson
“When I moved to Portland in 1995, I had to find a new doctor, a new dentist and a new VW mechanic. I’ve been through seven or eight doctors and dentists but consider myself extremely lucky to have found you soon after I arrived.
