Formerly known as "Duck My Ride," our "Keys for Hope" program is designed to fulfill needs within our community. We had to pause this program when Covid-19 hit for various reasons, but we are grateful for the years that Duck My Ride was possible. Though the effects of Covid are still present, we are happier than ever to be able to give back to our local community. This year, we were able to give away a Toyota Sienna that has been fully serviced and maintained by Sun Automotive for years. We are so happy to announce that on Friday, June 10th, 2022, we had the honor of giving a van away through ..read more

Sun Automotive technicians have been using a standardized diagnostic system to help determine what is wrong with a vehicle since 1996.

Sensors throughout a vehicle send readings to the Engine Control Module. These readings help the computer make adjustments in various vehicle systems to allow for constantly changing driving conditions and to compensate for minor problems.

One thing all drivers can do to extend the life of their battery is to keep it clean. A greasy, dirty battery holds in damaging heat. Same goes for removing corrosion from the terminals. Allowing your battery to be deeply depleted – like from using your headlights when the engine is off – is very harmful to your battery. Most automotive batteries can only take that about 10 times before they are ruined. Also, making sure you have a full charge every month or so extends battery life. Either an extended drive at freeway speeds around the area or using a battery charger will preserve your batter ..read more

Most Eugene and Springfield drivers don't even think about their air conditioner. Now here's a tip for vehicle owners: Run your air conditioner every so often during Oregon winters. This circulates the lubricant to help keep the seals from drying out. The air conditioner actually removes some of the moisture in the air. So if you have trouble with fogging on your vehicle windshield during winter or during a rain storm, running the A/C on the defrost setting should help. Also, air and water can get into the A/C system. That can reduce the efficiency of the system and also lead to corrosion that ..read more
