Is Tom Dwyer a car snob?

Hi I’m Tom Dwyer,

Some people ask why we restrict our service to “1998 and newer” vehicles.  There are good people who want to come to us, but we’ve had to say “no” because their vehicles were too old.  Are we just being automotive snobs?


We have many clients with older vehicles!  We started maintaining those vehicles when they were newer and continued as they aged, so we can keep supporting them.  Because we have a relationship with these clients, when we do tell them that it no longer makes sense to spend money on their vehicle they’ll trust our advice.

It’s impossible to build that kind of relationship around a vehicle that starts out as economically totaled.

Our maintenance programs can extend the life of your vehicle, but it’s rarely worth playing “catch up” to get an older, poorly maintained vehicle running safely and reliably.  I hate it when we have to say “no” to a potential client, but we respect you too much to start a relationship that is not mutually satisfying.

By phone at 503-230-2300 or online at, we’re Tom Dwyer Automotive Services… trusted to keep your vehicles, safe, breakdown-free and operating at their best!
