Oxford Auto Repair

At Ethan’s Honest Automotive Service & Repair we are proud to be members of the village of Oxford. We provide intimate service such a close-knit community requires. We provide the most honest and community-minded auto repair and maintenance in all of Cache Valley. You know you can trust us, the “honest” is even in our name. 

Oxford is one of Idaho’s oldest settlements. Only Franklin, the first permanent Idaho settlement is older. That is quite a distinction. So, even though this village does not have many residents, it has a big history. Oxford was a decently sized town until the 1880s when a few events coincided to turn new settlers away. You can learn more about Oxford’s fascinating history here

Oxford sits at one of the most northern points in Cache Valley. The location doesn’t get any better. You can take advantage of all Franklin county and the Cache Valley has to offer. Then you can return home to your small, quiet community. You just need to ensure your vehicle is working correctly. If your car breaks down, it can cause major problems. Regular vehicle maintenance from Ethan’s Honest Automotive will help prevent an uncomfortable or unsafe situation. 

The Cache Valley has a very desirable climate. That is why Oxford was so appealing to settlers. Because of the climate, most residents do not need a lot of service on their cars. We find that a yearly check-in or tune-up and regular oil changes work for most people. At the tune-up appointment, our team members will check out all of your car’s systems. If there is a problem, this is the visit that will catch it early. 

There are a plethora of vehicles in Oxford. The professionals at Ethan’s Honest Automotive can work on them all. We can service foreign and domestic vehicles of any size. Let us show you why Ethan’s Honest Automotive is the Cache Valley’s choice for quality auto service. When we are finished working on your vehicle please do send us a message. We love to hear from our customers. Your feedback helps us tailor our services to the residents of Oxford.

Oil Changes

Oil changes should be a routine part of your vehicle’s maintenance. In fact, regular oil changes are some of the best things you can do for the health of your vehicle. Most manufacturers recommend oil changes every 3000-15,000 miles. The higher end of that estimate only applies to a small percentage of specially-made vehicles. Most vehicles will need an oil change every 3000-4000 miles or three to four months. Talk to the specialists at Ethan’s Honest Automotive about the correct oil change schedule for your vehicle. 

Brake Service

You wouldn’t want to drive your car without brakes. It wouldn’t be safe. This is common sense. You need to be able to stop when you are driving a car. However, some people deal with small brake issues indefinitely. This is a bad idea. The brakes are made up of a variety of parts, these are the 

  • Master cylinder
  • Brake hoses
  • Brake linings’
  • Drum hardware
  • Brake fluid
  • Brake lubricant
  • Wheel bearings 

 If any of the brake elements break completely, your brakes could fail. That is why it is so important to stay up-to-date on your brake repair and maintenance. Contact Ethan’s Honest Automotive in Oxford for a complete brake check. 

A/C Service 

You may think that you can drive your vehicle without air conditioning. Unfortunately, that may just indicate that you have never tried to do this during the hot Oxford summer. A lack of A/C is fine in winter, in the summer it can make your vehicle unbearable. 

A/Cs also occasionally need to be recharged with coolant. If you notice that your A/C is not blowing at cold as it had, you need to bring it to Ethan’s Honest Automotive. We will discover the problem and get you back on the road with a cold A/C in no time. 

Suspension service

A lack of suspension will make your drive even more uncomfortable than a lack of A/C. The suspension controls the smoothness of your ride. If your suspension goes out, your ride will get extremely bumpy fast. That is not something you want to experience when driving in the mountains. 

The specialists at Ethan’s Honest Automotive will check the following elements of the suspension if you have a problem. We will determine what is causing the bumpiness or steering issues and fix it right away. 

  • Shocks and strut 
  • Power steering 
  • Suspension fluid
  • Tires
  • Busing or mount

Transmission service

Transmissions use oil just like engines. Where you need to change your engine oil every three to four months, you only need to change transmission fluid every 30,000-60,000 miles. There is a much longer time between transmission fluid changes. If you have an older vehicle, though, it may be time to think about changing your transmission fluid. 

In addition to completely removing and replacing your old transmission oil, the team members at Ethan’s Honest Automotive will 

  • Change or replace the screen or filter
  • Clean the pan
  • Install a new pan gasket


Tune-ups are extremely common in Oxford. This is the process of making your vehicle more efficient. At Ethan’s Honest Automotive, we include the following services in a tune-up visit. 

  • Inspect your engine
  • Replace the spark plug
  • Replace the air filter
  • Replace the fuel filter

We will also discuss your objectives for your vehicle before we begin working. That conversation will help us tailor your tune-up to your unique vehicle.
