My wife and I have used Paul for over 10 years. I can always tell when he does a tune-up. The car runs with more pep than when other people do the work. On general repairs I just give him the car and tell him to fix it. He never gouges me. I respect him.

I recently moved to Portland and needed some repair work to keep the wheels on my aging Honda Accord while I'm working on its third hundred thousand miles. New rear ball joints solved a disturbing knock, and Paul did a great job, completing the repair on time and under budget. He was patient and helpful in explaining the repair options and I'm really happy with his work and carside manner. He's earned my confidence for all future work!

As others have said, Paul is almost too nice to be an auto repairman. I had to reschedule the date, and it was no problem. He took me to work so I didn't have to deal with being late and believe it or not!!! He gave me a 10% discount below the price quoted. And, I had checked around, the same brake job was going to cost $250 and he charged me $80. Ann

We took our 91 Trooper to Paul's Orenco Station based upon the survey results on Cartalk.com. Now, we live over 30 miles from Orenco Station, but I can tell you, it was well worth it. We had been having difficulty getting the Trooper to pass the DEQ emmissions test and took it to Paul to "fix it". He did his best and even took it to the DEQ test site, but he was unable to get it to pass. He also fixed a burned out light bulb and a couple of other small items. Here is our real shock about Paul. He called us to let us know that he could not get our Trooper to pass the DEQ test, and that he suspected a bad catalytic converter, but he wasn't sure since he didn't have the neccessary equipment to test it. So, when we picked up our Trooper, Paul answered all of our questions and he refused to accept any payment for any of his time and effort, or for the parts that he did install. We were absolutely blown away. It turned out we did have a bad catalytic converter. Once that was replaced, our Trooper passed the DEQ test with flying colors. I would not hessitate to take any of my import vehicles to Paul's in the future.

I have had Paul do work on my Hondas for over 12 years. I have followed him to wherever he has worked because he does a good job the first time. Every time. I just give him the keys and say Fix it. He always does a good job at a fair price. He is a rare find.

i was very nervous about having my car repaired for basically the first time. i was happy to have this website as a referral. i feel very fortunate to have been guided to Paul at Orenco Station Import Auto. he is flexible in appointment scheduling, he gave me a ride to work, and my car purred like a kitten when i got it back at the end of the day. i will definitely go back when i am in need of future repair or maintenance.

Paul Riedi, owner is honest, reliable, and does good repairs at reasonable cost. He has worked as mechanic at Beaverton Honda and has certificates displayed for years of service. At 111,065 miles my '92 civic had 'check engine' light came on and had problem starting. I took it in to Orenco station and had Distributor body, and igniter replaced for $267.22! I couldn't find distributor body part for under $200! Paul is easy to talk to and I'd recommend him to my friends.

I'm a single woman who doesn't know much about cars, so have had my share of bad repair experiences. Am thrilled today to have finally found a good, honest mechanic. I've been out of work for a long time and didn't have much to spend, but didn't want to put off getting the timing belt replaced for fear of frying the engine. Paul's quote was about $300 less than the other Honda place (near TV hwy), as he said the water pump didn't need to be replaced on my 88 Accord, just for those 90 and later. (His quote did include lots of other belts, genuine Honda.) I also asked him to give me an estimate of what was causing a rough idle and surging problem, though wasn't sure when I'd be able to have it fixed. By my description of symptoms, he guessed right away that it was a bad pcv valve. Charged $12 for the part, nothing for labor. Now, understand that this has been an annoying problem for a LONG time. Over a year ago I had a tuneup done at a chain store that didn't do diddly, and the guys there said I needed a new carburetor (recommending their buddy's shop down the road). I put off having that done, and Paul said today that the carb seemed ok. Just got back from a very fun drive home. Now the tach needle stays put when I'm stopped at a light. Practiced crawling around an empty parking lot on idle with the ac blasting, and it didn't die once! The shop is almost exactly a mile away from the Orenco Max station, with safe sidewalks all the way, so leaving the car there wasn't a problem. Paul's a pleasant fellow who understood my $$$ concerns and didn't try to sell me extras. When I get work I'll definitely be back for a more thorough checkup. Based on this one great experience, would recommend this place to anyone with an older Honda.
