The world of diesel vehicles has undergone somewhat of a renaissance in recent years. Part of the appeal of the diesel engine is its longevity, with diesel powered vehicles often going strong for hundreds of thousands of miles. Another part of the appeal is the exceptional fuel economy, something that can save Oregon drivers hundreds of dollars a year.

When you need repairs and service, you need an expert mechanic in your corner, and that is exactly what you will get when you come into Checkpoint Motors.

Regular Maintenance to Make Your Diesel Engine Last
The longevity of the diesel engine is legendary, and that long engine life is a big part of the appeal. There are plenty of stories about diesel engines running strong for half a million miles or more, and those stories are not that unusual.
