EUGENE, Ore. — This week’s cold snap is delivering a boost in business to local mechanics.
Downtown Automotive in Eugene says it’s working on a lot of cars that won’t start.
The problems they’re working to fix range anywhere from batteries malfunctioning in the cold to frozen engines and radiators.
Even when the weather warms back up, they expect to stay busy.
“I’m sure that we’ll continue to see the aftermath of this in the next week or two probably we’ll catch with the repairs that need to be done as a result of the bad weather,” said owner Guy Godell.
Godell says you can avoid problems by keeping up with repairs and having your car regularly checked for problems.
