Brent and Crew did a great job of installing a custom 4.0 Range Rover engine in my beloved 1995 expedition equipped Disco!

I’ve been in love with Land Rovers since I was a little kid watching the Camel Trophy expeditions. I told myself that one day I would own of of those amazing vehicles. The opportunity came a couple of years ago and I knew what I was getting into. I bought my Classic as a project vehicle, it had a good body and low mileage for its age, but there was a lot of work to be done. Before I met the guys at Columbia Rovers I was constantly falling in and out of love with my Rover. There were days that I just wanted to dump it somewhere and forget about it. Then it came Columbia Rovers… Those guys transformed my beat up truck to an amazing machine! My engine was rebuilt, my interior redone, it was lifted, fit with new tires and wheels… I can’t even list all of the care it was given! I just wanted to thank Brent, Ken and Scott for taking care of my truck and make it the way I dreamed of! I will keep my Classic forever! Thank you so much!
Here is our story:
In June of 2008 we became proud owners of a 1995 Land Rover Discovery. We unfortunately knew very little about the vehicle. My husband noticed that the needed to have the Sway-bar on the Land Rover fixed. We called around and found a local tire company in Salem, Oregon (where we live) could give us best time line and price in town. We were told that it would take a day to fix it, however it actually took four days as we were waiting for the parts from the only dealer in Portland that dealt with Land Rovers. At least that is what this tire company told us.
We were so disappointed with the way that the tire company was treated by this dealer in Portland that we were really were not looking forward to taking our vehicle up there to that dealer in Portland, Oregon. I suggested to my husband that since we knew so little about the Discovery, and what needed to be repaired and that unfortunately no one in Salem, OR could help us that we had to find a company other then the one that the tire company had dealt with. My husband began looking on Craig’s List to see if anyone else had any information about Land Rover’s and that is where we found Columbia Rovers!
We are so happy that we found them. We talked to Ken and Brent at Columbia Rovers. They were both very knowledgeable about our Discovery! They let us know that they would work around our schedule, money, and issues with our vehicle. Not only that they offered to let us drive another Land Rover while they were fixing ours. That meant that we wouldn’t have to go out of our way to get another car to rent while they were fixing ours. This really put us at ease especially since we live in Keizer, OR; have two boys and busy schedules. We didn’t want to be with out a car. When we got to Portland we were able to find their shop. Everyone was very nice; they helped us by listening to our questions and concerns. Ken kept in contact with us letting us know what was going on with our Discovery and just as they had told us the day the Discovery was to be fixed it was ready and we didn’t have to wait for anything. It was wonderful! I am going to call on Columbia Rovers for all of my Land Rover Discovery needs.
In fact… Recently our family was driving down I-5 just before the Terwilliger Curves when we blew a tire. Since we didn’t know of anyone in the area to call and we unfortunately we don’t have AAA 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 so surprised. 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 because no truck driver in town had the tools that could fix it. I was so impressed. Within 30 min there he was on the ground with my husband changing the tire! It was the most satisfying experience. I cannot begin tell you how impressed our family is with this company. They really care about their customers. So all I can say is that I will always continue to call on Columbia Rovers for all of my Land Rover Discovery needs!

As the owner of an expedition travel website, northwestoverlandsociety.org, I was looking for a shop that would help me keep my vehicle in top running condition. The last thing I want is for my vehicle to fail in the middle of nowhere. I started working with Scott of Columbia Rovers two years ago and quickly found him to be extremely talented. His depth and breadth of experience with Land Rovers has enabled him to quickly existing or developing problems, and get them fixed right the first time.
I was referred to Columbia Rovers and greeted with an open shop door and same-day service. Being a lifetime Land Rover owner, thats impossible to find. Brent and Scott took the time to pop the hood and REALLY listen to my issues with my 89 Range Rover Classic, instead of the typical “lets replace everything and hope it works again” mentallitly I previously experienced at another shop in Portland. Brent has worked with me on my 2002 Freelander, 2003 Discovery G4, 2006 L322 Range Rover and my new addition to the family 1989 Range Rover Classic. Not only have I saved A LOT of money compared to previous service shops, but they helped me perform upgrades on my LRs that other shops did not even know exsisted. Thanks Brent, Scott and crew!
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!
