Any Passport owners in the Tilamook/Newport/Astoria, Oregon areas?

I’m considering a move to the area and the one thing I am having a tough time finding is a a Honda service shop. I prefer not to go to a dealer, but if there are no options...

This is what I’ve found:
Newport - Northwest All Pro & Sunwest Honda dealer
Astoria - Grafs Auto & Jim Varner's Automotive
Tilamook - nothing closer than a 70 mile drive?

Are you still considering a move to that area? It is a beautiful area based on our trip this past fall to Astoria, Tillamook and Portland. Does not look like there are many auto repair shops, unless you are near the major cities. If you find a good capable repair shop versus a Honda specialist, they should be able to address needs.

Did you or have you visited the Tillamook Creamery in Tillamook?

I am still considering a move. Got my first winter visit planned for 12/31-1/6.
Flying into Portland, then a few days between Astoria, Tilamook and Newport.

And I’m planning to go to the Tilamook Creamery on New Years Day with my friend who lives in Astoria!

However, at this point Newport is trending at #1. And I did find a cool shop that works on Hondas, though he hasn’t seen a Passport in Newport that I’m going to just say hi.

Hope that you have an opportunity to explore Portland area, too. Expensive to live, but very trendy, foodie town and Columbia River Gorge (Multnomah Falls, Vista House). Enjoy!

I have about 1 day in Portland. It’s not on my radar as the home prices are close to So Cal., and I want a small coastal town to call my home for retirement!

This first trip is also just to see if I can tolerate the climate change. I travel all over for work, but only get out of the hotel/venue into a car and back to a hotel/venue. I am hoping for another trip mid March when a project ends and I can drive up for a couple weeks?
