Our vehicles represent more than just transportation. Each one is the grocery-carrying, load-hauling, foul-weather family friend you just can’t be without.
When your car needs major repairs, it can be a tough decision whether or not to fix something major (like a engine) or put the money towards a down payment on another car. That’s where we can help. Sadly, many auto repair shops make a habit of quoting low prices to get you in the door. When the time comes to pick up the car the price has suddenly doubled! The customer is then out their deposit and the car still isn’t running.
We’re different. American Pride Automotive has been providing the areas of Newport News, Hampton, Poquoson, Yorktown, Williamsburg and Toano with quality engine repair and engine replacement since 1995.
Our goal is to help you make the best decision for you and your family based on your transportation needs, budget, and the age, mileage and model of the car or truck. Often we find cars that “needed a new engine” actually need much more minor repairs, like gasket or bearing replacement.
If a replacement engine is the best solution, we offer a variety of options backed by the best warranty in town.
Used Engines: We purchase used engines from recycling centers across the country and carefully inspect them prior to installation. Depending on the year, make, and model of the car or truck, this may be the best option. When a used engine is your best option American Pride Automotive assumes fill responsibility and guarantees both parts and labor with the best warranty in the business: 2 years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Rebuilt Engines: Rebuilding means the failed engine is removed from the car or truck, dismantled, and only the piece(s) that failed are replaced. The engine is reassembled and put back in the vehicle. While rebuilding can work, we feel that remanufactured engines are far more reliable. Furthermore, a professionally remanufactured engine is usually the same price as a rebuilt engine.
Remanufactured Engine: The entire engine is broken down, and every part is replaced or machined to meet the same specifications as a new original equipment (OE) engine. Frequently the only “used” part left is the case itself. We have installed hundreds of Jasper’s remanufactured engines, and are very happy with how they stand behind their product. Jasper’s remanufactured engines come with a 3 year, 100,000 mile fully transferable warranty.
New/OE Engine: We also install new engines direct from Toyota, Honda, Ford, Nissan, and others. Again, it’s all about finding the best solution for you.
You can also rest assured that our estimates don’t change. We will not order parts or do work that you have not explicitly authorized.
