General Info:

Founded in 1945, Michigan Motor Exchange began remanufacturing engines, providing vehicle owners a financially sound alternative to keep their vehicles on the road long after their prime. We continue to provide this alternative today, in addition to many other services such as transmission replacement.

Michigan Motor Exchange moved the factory to 3500 E. Eight Mile Rd. in 1962, where we continue to build and Install engines today, in addition to our installation centers in Waterford & Westland.

Present ownership of Navarre Inc., purchased Michigan Motor Exchange in 1983, with the desire to become this landmark company and to breathe new life into it. This new life has provided growth, by expanding our traditional quality service throughout Southeast Michigan communities, with the addition of two installation facilities. The longevity of our workforce provides additional evidence that Michigan Motor Exchange is a great place for you to desire becoming a part of.

The Navarre family proudly owns & operates this family oriented business as reflected through the four generations who have worked here. We are proud of the reputation Michigan Motor Exchange has built in the market place, which supports our saying; Someone you know has been satisfied by our service."

Success! Thanks for posting your review of Michigan Motor Exchange. You’ve done the world some good today.


I never expected to be replacing an engine at this point and time in my life. But this truck has literally saved my life more than once. So I was suffering anxiety issues worry-ing about if I had done the right thing, and a few various other issues. The guys at your Westland store, have put EVERY worry about my truck at rest. I have an F-150, 2004, I bought brand new in 2003. I couldn't part with her just becaus... view more

What a miserable experience. Checked a few on line reviews found mixed results and figured we'd give it a shot since they were local and been in business for so long. MISTAKE. Must certainly be a 2nd generation business, as Dave at the Waterford location is nothing more than a 2nd rate BS'r used car salesman. Tuesday 4-15 Hunny takes van there for new motor, quick discussion about problem, what to expect and get as... view more

I brought my 1995 Chevy S-10 into Michigan Motor Exchange for an engine back in July of 2004. Now after ten years and a 100,000 miles of running great I figured they would be the best people to deal with when I needed to have my transfer case replaced. They are good, honest people. Thanks Michigan Motor Exchange on a job well done.

I am incredibly happy that I called Dave at Michigan Motor Exchange in Waterford after hearing the nonsense my dealer was throwing at me to troubleshoot and repair my engine that one day sounded like someone threw their toolbox into. Dave was extremely patient with me explaining all the options and his quoted cost for a certified used low mileage engine fully installed was less than a third of what the dealer was qu... view more

I had my 2000 Escalade motor rebuilt, dropped the vehicle off 2-5-2013 and picked it up 2-11-2013. They went out of there way to give me a ride home. In addition to the rebuild they installed extras such as (belts, hoses, rotor, wires) preparing the car for the next 100,000 miles. I could not be happier for the service I rec'd from everyone involved, from the front guy at the counter to the one that gave me a ride ho... view more

I must GIVE Michigan Motor Exchange a five star review for the ability to GET five star reviews. Just an observation...but have you ever purchased a product that you absolutely loved? Did you take the time to give the product a five star review? If you did, were ALL the other reviews five star? Did you take the time to create accounts on multiple sites and give the same five star review? Were you still posting gu... view more

We decided to go to MME with our daughters car when she had timing chain issues that destroyed her motor. We went to the Westland shop and they made us feel extremely comfortable with our decision even with the cost. We told them we needed them to do a "bang up" job on the car as she was a college student commuting.The assured me they would deliver and that we would be extremely happy with our choice. So fa... view more

My engine was rebuilt and installed by Michigan Motor Exchange and has been a five star mess from the beginning. It is easy to talk, and I am sure that they have many success stories to talk about in the many decades they have been in business. My engine is not one of their success stories and I have never seen a group of people willing to make excuses, pass blame and not take responsibility for inferior work as di... view more

Very impressive facility! Neat, organized, and very experienced mechanics! I have taken a tour of the Michigan Motor Exchange facility and would highly recommend this business to everyone I know. If you need an engine for your car, truck, boat or RV, this is the place to go! They'll give you top quality work at a fair price.

It has always been a pleasure ...

It has always been a pleasure dealing with Michigan Motor Exchange . They gave me in detail all the things that they were going to do ahead of time and everything happened as described. My motor ran like a top right off the bat. They were great to work with. I would definitely go to them for future needs.
