I am extremely disappointed with my experience at Columbia Rovers. I made an appointment to have the fuel pump in my Discovery I replaced and was told by Brent, that they could see it the following afternoon for sure but possibly could be seen if I get the D1 there in the morning. So I arrange to have AAA deliver it that morning. I even called to notify Columbia Rovers that the tow truck was en route to their location with my vehicle. Upon calling a person who claimed to "not be the normal person who answers the phone" answers and explains that the owner Brent and JD are in a meeting. I leave my name and contact info to ensure they are aware who the SUV belongs to. I wait until 3pm on the day of delivery and call to inquire about when it will be complete. I am told that they had no idea whose vehicle it was and hadn't been touched yet. Frustrated, I asked how much longer it would be. They apologized and said it would be done by days end. A couple of hours later I get the call that the service is finished. I pick the D1 up and all seems well. Until I notice the next day that in the replacement process my rear cargo carpeting was torn in 6 separate spots. I call to alert them of this and am asked to bring it in for inspection. I do so that very day and am greeted by Brent who was less than sorry about the damage. He agrees to replace it but doesn't appear remorseful. I am left with a very poor overall experience. A day after picking up my SUV from them the fuel pump fails.

I've been taking my D1 to these guys for a couple years now. Despite being a rare optioned model with some hard to find parts, these guys never let me down. I'd recommend them to anyone needing repairs on a Land Rover product or anyone considering buying one. Brent won't steer you wrong. Give em a shout!

Last year I was having some hard start problems with my Classic and was searching for the right shop to not only take care of the problem, but to build an all important relationship with. I started out taking it to the "other" shop in town, and after 3 misdiagnosis and shotgunning parts at it, I decided to take it to Brent at Columbia Rovers. What an experience ! They stuck with it and figured it out. They found discounted parts and the labor was quite reasonable. Since then I have had them do some upgrades and other work to my truck with great results. I will not take my truck anywhere else, in fact I drive all the way from Central Oregon to have it worked on. Thankfully they are opening a shop in Bend this year!

In June of 2008 we became proud owners of a 1995 Land Rover Discovery. My husband found Columbia Rovers! We talked to Ken and Brent at Columbia Rovers. They were both very knowledgeable about our Discovery! This really put us at ease especially since we live in Keizer, OR; have two boys and busy schedules. Recently our family was driving down I-5 just before the Terwilliger Curves when we blew a tire. I decided to take a chance and call Columbia Rovers. It was a Tuesday evening after 7:00pm and Brent answered the telephone. I was just going to ask him if he knew of a tow truck company to call, but he asked why I was calling, I told him where we were and about the tire. He said that he could come out and take a look at it I was so impressed. Within 30 min there he was on the ground with my husband changing the tire! I cannot begin tell you how impressed our family was and still is with this company. They really care about their customers. Carolee & Matthew Keizer, Oregon

I have been a Classic Land Rover enthusiast since I was about 5 years old. At that time my uncle had purchased a 1972 Range Rover Suffix A, which I still has very vivid and fond memories of. I purchased my first Land Rover, a Series III, while living in Scotland some 13 years ago and this past fall I finally got my hands on the Land Rover Defender I've always wanted so I decided to give Columbia Rovers a call because of their convenient location. I am so glad I did. The level of professionalism and positive attitude that I have experienced at Columbia Rovers has yet to be surpassed. It is very comforting to me as an enthusiast to be dealing with a shop who really knows what they are talking about and who knows a whole lot more than I do. You will not get this kind of care and this level of technical knowledge if you go to a Land Rover dealership or a generic shop. Columbia Rovers have helped me with everything from general maintenance and repairs, electrical wiring clean-up, to full undercarriage rustproofing with Waxoyl. I have been recommending Columbia Rovers to everyone I know that drives a Land Rover. Thank you!
