Overall, Engine Works has been a great experience. I initially went to the shop because of an emergency, but the staff was extremely easy to work with, everything was explained to me, and I honestly just felt comfortable with everything I was told. I have now been back a few times (for other services such as oil changes, miscellaneous repairs, smog checks) but the service is always great and consistent. I also had a great chat with the gentleman who works at the front desk about selling my vehicle, and I get the feeling that he's very upfront and honest about everything. Anytime I have a need for my car, I always go to Engine Works, and plan on continuing to do so.

This is the only auto shop I know of that looks to reduce what I pay without me asking. And have suggested that I did not need repairs I thought I might because there was a better solution. They do a good job at a good price.

I got my 80,000 mileage service done here. Jim, the shop owner, took the time to show me a part that would need to be replaced in the future. He explained why I did not need to replace it right away and that I would save money if I did it with a different kind of service in the future.

Everyone was ploite and knowledgeable. Work on my car (standard tune-up) was explained while I waited. Done in less than 1 hour. Referral to possible after-market backup camera installer. EngineWorks is my new go-to car place!
