Since first opening its doors in 1970, The Engine Room has stood the test of time and established itself as Santa Cruz County's quality and value leader in servicing Japanese-built vehicles. Perhaps the strongest testament to our popularity and success is the fact that we are the oldest continuously-owned and operated foreign auto repair shop in Santa Cruz. Owners of Honda, Acura, Toyota, Nissan, Subaru, Lexus, Mazda, Mitsubishi and Jaguar take their vehicles to the Engine Room knowing their autos will be expertly serviced by a highly competent and quality-oriented independent shop known for its integrity, meticulous attention to detail, and fair pricing.
For those vehicle owners who come to us after having been subjected to the impersonal and often questionable service practices and prices offered by dealerships and chains, the difference is like night and day. Instead of being just a number, you suddenly become a person. And instead of the owner being 2,000 miles away in another state, as is common with dealerships and chains, at Greg Solow's Engine Room, Greg is right here interacting with you one on one to make sure you and your vehicle receive the highest level of quality service possible.
