Our Mission

We've been rebuilding and installing engines in southeast Michigan since 1945. With two locations to serve you in Detroit and Waterford, we're able to cover all of Southeast Michigan.

Michigan Motor Exchange is a family owned and operated company. We have the highest regard for our employees and believe that family comes first. We also continue to be active members of our community. Check out the 'Community' link in the left menu for our recent activity.

Our Values

Our company was founded as a result of the gifts of God. Belief in His principles is our guideline when dealing with customers and employees.

We are all familiar with God's Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"

Interpretation of this rule at Michigan Motor Exchange is: "Give an honest job for an honest price"

  • We are here to serve our customers and fill a need to service their vehicle.
  • We accept this responsibility from the customer and pledge to build the best engine we can and install it in the same manner.
  • We will use our best judgment in recommending to customers what they do or do not need.
  • We endeavor to give our employees an opportunity to use their God-given talents and earn a living for themselves and their family.
  • We will endeavor to develop a work environment that helps a person grow as an individual and in his/her work skills.
  • We are interested in you as an individual - in your personal and spiritual welfare - as we are in your work activities.
  • We emphasize that any employee, at any time, can ask for and receive a conference with anyone in management.

Since Michigan Motor Exchange is family owned and operated, it should be no surprise that we put special emphasis on the families of our employees.
