European Car Repair in Eugene, Oregon
Looking for an experienced European car mechanic in Eugene, OR (97401 or 97402)? The skilled, experienced auto technicians at Jackson’s Auto Care don’t just fix European cars… They understand them. That’s important, especially with the big price tags that come with European car repair here in the United States. Jackson’s keeps it reasonable because they are broadly familiar with all sorts of cars. They can spend their time twisting wrenches rather than rifling through the factory service manual or asking Google. That means a better value for our customers and a higher standard of service delivered by our talented staff.
European Car Brands in America
What European car brands are sold in America? Maybe more than you thought! Even though the car industry as we know it began with Henry Ford, the car as we know it began in deepest France under the watchful eye of deletant inventor Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot. His were steam-powered devices, chugging along with an horsepower or two, born out of the desire to liberate the train car from its rigid and unmalleable tracks. Sadly, Cugnot’s visions of a steam-powered land armada accomplishing any conceivable task was quashed by poor construction and the public’s hesitance in adopting tricycles propelled by enormous iron boilers as a practical replacement for the very capable horses of the time. Nonetheless, Cugnot’s intense, passionate heart for inventing things landed him in the French National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts where he remains to this day.
Many years later, another French inventor with the nearly unpronounceable name of Nicéphore Niépce invented what most knowledgeable scholars concede is likely the first internal combustion engine. He installed it on a boat, a mistake that would haunt him for the balance of a his short and strange life. Frustratingly, a Swiss inventor with another nearly unpronounceable name (François Isaac de Rivaz) created his own internal combustion engine, but this time put it inside a tiny little carriage. Tragically, engines powered by plant spores, coal dust, and various oils and resins never took off, and the French/Swiss contribution to automotive history ended as quickly as it began.
Real cars as we know them today were the work of proper Teutonic engineering. Men with names like Daimler, Maybach, and Benz imagined what people wanted in a personal conveyance, and then invented exactly that. There is a reason why we still hear these names every day, and we have completely forgotten about men like Niépce and de Rivaz. Those names belong to men who succeeded. Those names belong to car brands with status and prestige. Those names will outlast their contemporaries today, and may come to define the cars of tomorrow.
At Jackson’s Auto Care, we service every type of European Car from every country. The French did go one to invent some unlikely-looking cars with other unpronounceable names and sell them here in the United States. Switzerland’s close neighbor Sweden also managed to create some pinnacle-level vehicles appreciated by everyone, as did Italy and even the United Kingdom!
In addition to the legendary Rolls Royce and Bentley brands (which are no longer owned by the United Kingdom), Jaguar has long stood for Anglo-Saxon automotive engineering here in the United States. Showing up everywhere from James Bong films to the parking lots of law firms, the sinuous shapes of Jaguars have long been associated with class and discernment. This class and discernment comes with a price, however: just like anything good, Jaguars require a little more attention to detail when it comes to car and maintenance.
Audi AG Repair
What is Audi AG? Audi AG is a family of automobile brands similar to the General Motors here in the United States. Many vehicles fall under their continent-spanning Umbrella, which their origins in countries like Spain and Romania. Here in the States, we only ever see products from Volkswagen and Audi, the German brands, along with (strangely) Lamborghini, Porsche and Bentley and even Bugatti.
BMW has been called “the Ultimate Driving Machine” in the past, but today’s offerings list more toward comfort and electronic assistance than the visceral, road-biting machines of yore. Thankfully, the earlier your BMW, the more likely they are to still be on the road. At Jackson’s, we especially love to maintain and preserve the BMWs of the 1990s and early 2000s, which truly were “the Ultimate Driving Machine”
Daimler and Benz would eventually join forces and create an automotive concern that to this day churns out spectacular products with enduring character and compelling presence. You can count on a Daimler AG product to deliver when it comes to comfort, convenience, and performance… and in the case of their top-tier offerings, six-figure window stickers.
What is a Fiat? In ancient society, a fiat described a noble person’s ability to do what he pleased without interference from commoners. In car terms, Fiat describes the most powerful automotive company in Italy. Fiat owned Chrysler for a time, and may even own in now. They also make the Fiat cars now being sold in the United States.
Alfa Romeo Repair
Just like Fiat, Alfa Romeo is Italian. And, just like Fiat, Alfa Romeo ownership is just not for the casual car consumers. Too much is left unsaid and undone for those who gravitate toward Toyotas and Hondas. It has been said in many circles that one cannot be considered a true car person without having owned an Alfa Romeo.
Volvos rarely need repair, but when they do, it can be a doozy. Made with some of the safest engineering in the automotive business, Volvos display a character that compels devotion among the brand’s largest and generally polite fanbase.
Just like Volvos, Saabs are Swedish. And, just like Volvos, Saabs are amazing. Their small number of platforms and company history as an aircraft manufacturer gave rise to vehicles that excelled both in practicality and pure speed.

Awesome!!! The guys in their service department actually listen/explain things in a way I can understand and are super friendly to boot. I love that we can bring both of our cars there to get fixed (and fixed right!) and don’t feel like we have to take them to separate places to get someone who knows what they’re doing with each one. Plus, they’re always able to drop me off and pick me up so that I don’t have to wait or arrange for a ride to/from their place – very convenient. Definitely recommended.
Jackson’s has been around so long for good reason – they’re honest, whether the news is good or bad, and are just good people, not to mention the fact that they’ve fixed anything and everything I have thrown their way and fixed it well. I appreciate being able to go to one place that can take care all of my personal and business vehicles, no matter the make/model. Highly recommended.
