About Tyler’s Automotive


When Tyler started repairing cars in his garage back in the early 1990s, he didn’t imagine his then hobby would turn into a thriving business. Tyler was a one-man show repairing the cars of his neighbors and friends, while his wife Margaret shuttled those customers between the garage and their homes, often with the couple’s two sons in tow. It soon became clear that this hobby as a mechanic could be a full-time job. The first Tyler’s Automotive opened in Tigard in 1993 with the determination they would provide honest, exceptional, and complete automotive repair with no tricks and no pressure.

That philosophy served the business well and by 2006 the second Tyler’s Automotive opened in Wilsonville, and in 2008 the third operation opened in Newberg. Both those boys who tagged along on shuttles with Margaret are now working in the business and the family has never looked back.


The Tyler’s credit their thriving auto repair business to their hardworking and caring employees, and to their belief that success comes from always doing the right thing for not just customers, but also for their employees.


Part of doing the right thing is to give back to the communities that have supported them. Whether donating oil changes for school auctions, sponsoring youth sports teams, or volunteering with the local scouts, Tyler’s Automotive finds ways to help their neighbors in meaningful and tangible ways. Quite simply, they believe it’s all about helping others. That’s just who the Ellenson family is.
