Attentive staff. Greeted quickly. Was given a thorough explanation of what my 120,00 mile check up would include. They recommended new spark plugs but didn't pressure me either way. Was also given a great recommendation for auto body work from another shop. Will definitely be back when my truck needs service.

My only complaint was that I brought the car in at 10 a.m. for just an oil change and transmission service, but they ended up keeping my vehicle overnight and finishing it in the morning.

every issue was addressed. However, without any notation on my check out receipt i was told I need new front tires, but not told if this was an issue i had to do ASAP. That was a bit confusingbecause it was not noted on the form I received at check out. Also, now that I have the car back, I noticed the lights on the gearshift panel are not on at night. I think the technician might have accidentally turned them off. Will bring car back in and tell them about this. Otherwise, my experience with Engine 'Works has been positive.

Engine Works did the work at a better price and with none of the 'hard upsell' of the dealership I previously dealt with.
