Here are the words that really matter…yours! If you really want to learn about a shop, ask their clients. These unsolicited comments are from feedback responses, web reviews, report cards, letters, postcards and emails that we have received over the years.
Ryan C. had to say:
“Motor Works was recommended to me by my father-in-law quite vehemently. When my wife and I bought her parents' '02 Accord, it came attendant with a folder filled with Motor Works maintenance records. When my clutch refused intermittently to disengage, I brought it to them. I was assisted by Paul, who was courteous, professional, and genuinely competent in all ways. We've recently moved into an apartment, and my lease prohibits vehicle maintenance in the parking lot, and I've a bit of experience fixing my own Hondas, having owned a few prior to this, and I found their diagnosis to be accurate and honest. I was given a few options for ways we might proceed with the repair, from the bare minimum to restore its functionality, or to replace an additional part to ensure long-term reliability. They were honest, and they had my estimate in writing by e-mail about twelve hours after I'd dropped it off.
They use OEM parts. They don't use cheap aftermarket replacement parts of inferior quality. OEM parts cost more, but so does a Honda or Toyota vis a vis a domestic auto.
The repair was finished quickly, and the final bill ended up being about $20 less than their estimate, always a pleasant surprise.
The office staff is knowledgeable, affable, and will go out of their way to accommodate your maintenance and emergency work. They drove me to the car rental agency.
I can't imagine bringing this vehicle anywhere else for service. I'm bummed they can't do the recall repair for the airbag issue, else I wouldn't be using Herson's for it.
The office and the shop are clean. This means quite a bit to me. It's really easy to see grease all over everything in your mechanic's office and dismiss it as parcel to the business, you'd almost expect a dirty shop. After all, this is dirty work at times. It takes a profound effort and attention to detail to maintain a presence as orderly as Motor Works does, especially considering the business they're in.
Motor Works is reliable and convenient. I almost always get everything fixed the day it is dropped off.
It's clients like you that make being in this business so enjoyable. Your smile and laugh are amazing and we all enjoy you every time you come in. If there is anything that we can do to improve your experience, please don't hesitate to let me know, ok? Thanks for the wonderful words. – Greg
Great service, honest and reliable. Highly recommend Motor Works.
Hi Mr. Hoffman,
Thank you so much for taking the time to review your experiences here. We appreciate you and are interested in finding ways to improve your overall experiences each time you visit. Please don't hesitate to let me know if you can think of ways to accomplish that. Thanks again, Greg
Motorworks is the best car repair shop you could ever hope to find. I would not consider buying another make car because it would mean abandoning Motorworks.
Ms Meissner – what can we say... your words make us blush. You have been such a wonderful client for so many years. We always love seeing you walk through that door. – Greg
We knew that my wife's low miles 1997 Camry needed major work to remain safe on the road. I lucked out finding Motor Works where she felt
welcomed and comfortable with everyone – NOT like my usual pick of good o'l boy garages. The work was done on time and under $ estimate – and with no surprises. We will be repeat customers for routine maintenance as any other Toyota service needs.
I always appreciate the excellent service we receive both personally and with our vehicles. We only have one now but they make sure I get a ride home or provide a loaner if I need one. They are also very kind and patient with my questions!
Having my car get its "check-up" is a non-event with Motorworks since they provide rides and in the past have provided a loaner if needed. The people I have dealt with are wonderful--kind, knowledgeable, generous. We don't trust anyone else…
Mrs. H. Thank you so much for your kind words. You are a wonderful client and we all appreciate seeing you. If there is anything that you need, please don't hesitate to let me know. – Greg
Motor Works treats you like family! Everyone is very friendly. Not the cheapest car repair shop in the world, but there are never unnecessary expenses. You can always trust them to do the right thing. With their service, I have been able to…
Thank you so much Doc. It's great to have such wonderful clients as you and Ms K. If there is anything you need, please don't hesitate to let me know. – Greg
As always, I was treated professionally and courteously and, almost as important, they did a great job on my car.
Motor Works has consistently been a reliable, competent and friendly service provider for our cares. Over the years I have been glad to recommend Motor Works to friends, colleagues and anyone else who asks.
I cannot say enough about how honest, helpful and wonderful this company is.
I thought I had knocked off my tail, pipe and took it in yesterday for repair. After dropping it off, I had an emergency and had to run back to pick up the car. …
Thanks you so much Ms. S for the kind words. We've been here a long time taking care of each client just like you describe...one at a time. Looking forward to seeing you again soon when you're ready to take care of the routine servicing on your car. – Greg
Motor Works is as good as it gets. They Always do the work right and only what is needed.
Thanks so much Mr. K! We greatly appreciate the kind words. Miss you bunches & hope everything with you is all good! We're here when you need us.
I have been delighted with the services provided by Motor Works for over twenty years now. The quality of their work is first-rate, and they will always have my business. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and always eager to help.
Thanks SO much, Mr. M for your great words. If there is ANYTHING we can do to help, please don't hesitate to ask. We'll be here. – G
I have been a customer of Motor Works since 1986. They have always been fair, reliable, consistent in their performance, and exceedingly friendly to everyone who visits them. While some may find them a bit pricey, I have not — indeed, I've…
Thank you very much for the high praise. Clients like you make this kind of work a pleasure. When cloning is perfected, we should talk? ;>)
I appreciate your mention that you value our level of service. Even if other auto shops might advertise cheaper, doing the proper preventive maintenance is clearly less expensive over the long haul. You're the proof of it's 'REAL' value!
I'll be sure to share your words with the crew, as well. Please don't hesitate to reach out if there is anything that you need! Cheers, Greg
Great service. Wonderful staff. Who could ask for more.
Was using Motor Works for 6 years. Easy to make an appointment. Friendly staff. Courtesy transportation to Metro/Bus station. Always put on an extra effort to get client's satisfaction. Convenience of dropping off and picking up the vehicle after hrs.
My experience with Motor works is ALWAYS ABOVE 5-Star. I have been with them since they opened their doors and have never been disappointed.
I brought my new CRV in for its first oil change and I mentioned that there was a recall that needed to be taken care of. Motor Works does not do recall work, but they were right there for me anyway. They took my CRV to Herson's Honda themselves and picked it up when it was finished, thus saving me the time and inconvenience of having to dal with this.
Surprise – I was charged nothing for the oil change and for taking it to the dealer for me as this was the first time service for my new Honda. Special people!! Not just for the excellent work, but for their personal interest in each of their customers.
Wonderful customer service. Wished they worked in MINIs!
Great for the car and with customers.
Robert Clay Rivers
Great customer service and a commitment to find the problem fix it in a reasonable and well researched manner. Would recommend folks go to them for repair of their vehicle. Support a local business with a passion to provide goods service.
Mr. Rivers, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. Welcome to the MWI family! If there is anything that we can do to help, please don't hesitate, okay? – Greg
I have been taking my 2003 V6 Accord to Motor Works for about 5 years; their service is for first rate.It just turned 150,000 miles and runs like new. They only do the service that Honda recommends, no up selling. Want your car to last 200,000 miles? Call Geg at Motor Works today!
Motor Works was recommended to me by my father-in-law quite vehemently. When my wife and I bought her parents' '02 Accord, it came attendant with a folder filled with Motor Works maintenance records. When my clutch refused intermittently to…

Greg Skolnik – Owner
I have been a client of Motor Works for over 20 years. They are the reason I have owned three Hondas--I would never trust another shop with my car. Over the years, I have never had a problem with my car that they couldn't fix and fix it …

We were initially referred to Motor Works by family friends who raved about their service. We started using them and have now done so for over 12 years. This is the single best automotive service we have ever used, for multiple reasons. …

It was certainly wonderful to hear from you guys. Thanks so much for the great review. I'm still waiting for my Mike & Debbie clone replacements...lol. Hope you're enjoying yourselves out there. Remember, you always will have a "friend in the business"... just call if you need anything. Thanks... Greg
I've been coming here for more more than 12 years and they keep finding ways to improve what was already the best service experience I had gotten in 30 years of car ownership. The repairs are always done flawlessly the first time and the front desk employees are friendly and also know about cars, so they can explain the repairs and why they are needed. They are unlike the dealerships because they don't search for every tiny flaw and try to make me pay for repairs that I won't actually need for months. For repairs done right the first time, honesty, and folks who treat you like that would their own family but still at fair prices , this is the place to go.
Service and repairs are always done thoroughly and professionally. Staff is warm and friendly and definitely goes the "extra mile" to please the customer. My cars have presented some serious challenges over the last 30 years and, each and …

Hi Mr. Magee, thanks so much for the great review and especially for your kind and thoughtful words. If there is anything that you need, please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks, Greg Skolnik
I love Motorworks. It starts with the people. You can find an expert anywhere, but they'll never make you feel as welcomed as the team at Motorworks. They even invite you to come by just to say hello. PS – my odometer went over 100K this …
Hey Lisa, thanks so much for the wonderful words and the great review. If I could give a five-star review to our clients...you'd definitely get that from me. You're awesome! Thanks again, Greg Skolnik

Hi Nancy, What can I say... you are absolutely a superstar around this place. Thanks so much for the great review. – Greg
If you own a Honda, Acura, or a Toyota, this is the place to go for service! Greg and his crew are top notch professionals who will treat your car like their own. They are honest, reliable, and reasonable.
Why go anywhere else?
Thanks, Mr. M., for your kind words! We appreciate you, and all our clients like you.
Honest mechanics. I've been taking my 2007 honda cr-v here since I moved to the area four years ago. I found Motor Works on yelp so I wanted to pay it forward. In my 3 times I've dealt with them (non functioning ac, stalling car, and and …

I've been a customer since 2009 and this shop is why I chose to stick with the Honda brand when I recently traded my old Civic in for a CR-V.
I had parked my minivan at a shopping center when I realized that the sliding passenger door wouldn't close. I was stuck with two small kids and could neither leave the car with the door wide open nor drive away. I contacted Motor Works and…
I can only attest to the customer service at motor works. I brought my 10 year old car in that was having trouble switching gears. Dave did the diagnostics for the car, found out what was wrong and after realizing how much it would cost to …
At least you know the catalytic converter is what was causing your problem and not a new transmission! Thanks so much for your words. If we can help you again, please don't hesitate. Okay? – G
I have been a customer for over 15 years. Fantastic customer service. Always receive friendly and professional advice. In fact, I will only buy a Honda because I know that Motor Works will take care of my car.
It was wonderful to see you today. It actually going on 28 years that you guys have been such great clients. Thanks so much for the years of trust. We cherish long-term relationships like the one with you both.
I've been a customer of Motor Works for 30 years and rely on their service for "peace of mind" driving. They've always kept my cars running extremely well and I continue to return to them even though I now reside in Virginia.
This was our first time at Motor Works and we are impressed. They diagnosed our van's problems accurately and quickly and it is now running like new. When the repair took longer than expected, they offered us a loaner vehicle for the night…
We have used Motorworks for more than 20 years. I have greatly appreciate its professionalism, quality service and its accommodating us when we needd emergency repairs. I recommend Motorworks without reservation.,
Everyone I met at Motor Works (Greg, Dave, Mike) were knowledgeable about Hondas, generous with their time, respectful and helpful to me in many different ways. Anyone who has a Honda knows that you need a mechanic who REALLY knows Hondas …

I've had all my Hondas (2) serviced for over 10 years at this excellent service organization, but they really went above and beyond anything I've experienced when my daughter's Pilot was vandalized. She and her family had gone camping, …
My brother works on Hondas and told me what to expect. Motor Works told me exactly what my brother had said. The staff member listened and responded to my needs and I feel that the price was a fair reflection of the work involved.
I have been going to Motor Works for the past few years and I would highly recommend them.
Motor Works does a very professional job and they do not pressure you into getting service. I normally take advantage of the free ride to the metro…

Thank you for your patience, perseverance and demonstrated expertise. You also score high with me for making this experience as pleasant as it possibly could be. After dealing for years with unsatisfactory work and treatment from the Honda dealership, I feel very fortunate to now place my vehicle in your hands. My only regret is that you don't work on Grand Cherokees. You got to the source of the mystery problem with our CR-V. I hope we can work together to keep this vehicle safe and reliable for several more years. Thanks again for a job well done over several days of frustration.
K. ChenaultJuly 20, 2016
Simply the Best…
There is no better business of any type anywhere. Motor Works is simply the best - makes you want to own a Honda so you can have them service it.

Sometimes You Just Need a Hug…
Sometimes you just need a hug with your auto repair, and you can get that, too! Thanks for all you do!!
L. LaubgrossAugust 10, 2015
I really cannot think of anything that needs improvement. In my opinion, you have covered and mastered all the important areas of customer relations. You have sustained great relationships with your long time customers. You go to great lengths to satisfy your customers and often extend yourselves to do more for them. I would think the first time new customers walk through your doors, they would be amazed with all you offer them and with how you treat them.
C. EscabiAugust 10, 2015
Done Correctly the First Time…
The quality of service is really excellent - Paul is great to deal with, and so far every repair you've done has been done correctly the first time. With your convenient Metro shuttle service, it's hard to know what else to ask for!
J. LyonAugust 10, 2015
Feel Taken Care Of…
I've been a customer for many, many years, and I can't think of an additional thing. I am always warmly greeted, provided rides, and my car is ready just as promised and in great condition. I feel very taken care of. Your personnel are terrific, starting at the top.
A. DalyAugust 10, 2015
Expertise, Competence and Efficiency…
Greg, It has been an honor and privilege to be your customer over the years. I discovered you via a referral from Dr. Mahalik from NIH back in the 80's. You cared for my Toyota Celica and when it was clear no amount of money was going to help it, you suggested strongly that I replace it. I did, with a Honda, and never looked back. Both my husband and I respect your expertise, competence, and efficient and thorough approach to your work. However, it is the fact that you are approachable as a human being and actually remember our names and life situation that had us coming to you all these years. Sadly, we will be moving to Miami Beach, FL - yes, living the cliche! We will miss you and your team.
B. GalenAugust 10, 2015
In Good Hands…
Time and again you go beyond what is called for and provide incredible customer service. We know our cars are in good hands and you take care of the owners as well.

Dear Greg & Company, In all the years I've been depending on you I have never been disappointed. In addition to doing a great job on the car, everyone is always friendly and thoughtful.
S. McCallAugust 10, 2015
Like Finding a Great Doctor…
I was recommended by a friend and couldn't be happier. Finding a trustworthy mechanic is a lot like finding a great doctor. While they are not the least expensive, they are not the most expensive either but, it really comes down to getting what you pay for, and you do, and then some. It feels like they treat you like they would treat their family. They let you know what needs to be done and what will probably need to be done in the future so you can plan. Very upfront and honest and very good at what they do. Would recommend them to anyone with a Honda or Toyota.
T. StantonAugust 10, 2015
I think my car ran smoother after I picked it up than the day I bought it (used). Thank you all for taking the time to make sure it was done right, even at the end of the day!! I know you all wanted to get out of there to get home, but you took the time to make sure it was right, did the test drives and double checks, which means the world to me.
K. HughesAugust 10, 2015
I do not think that I could be treated any better. Always a pleasure and always executed flawlessly. Again, my thanks for a fully professional job.
J. HortonAugust 10, 2015
My first visit and was very happy. They were able to squeeze in an extended inspection even though I had only scheduled an oil change and tire rotation.
My wife has been going to Motor Works for years and told me my next car has to be a Honda so I can get it serviced at Motor Works.
August 10, 2015
I like the personal touch. The service rep knows me by name and is knowledgeable about my car.

Couldn’t Ask for More…
I really can't think of anything more I could ask for from Motor Works. The staff is very courteous and friendly always. And I recently had an experience when you all helped me out with no hesitation and I couldn't appreciate your help more. It was at just before dark one evening when I came out to my car to discover my battery was dead because I had unknowingly left on my headlights. I got very upset, pulled out my cell phone and called Motor Works and you all helped me out right away. You sent someone to my rescue immediately and he took care of recharging the battery and I was on my way home just a few minutes after dark. I was so relieved, especially not being a young person, that I was not left stranded on my own. I have recommended Motor Works to a few friends who have now been depending on you for several years and have thanked me more than once. Keep up the good work! And I'll keep up the good recommendations!!
R. McArthurAugust 10, 2015
You seem to do everything right! Too bad more businesses aren't run like yours!

I've always found the staff to be very friendly & helpful. Thank you for coming out to jump my dying battery in this freezing weather and then following me to the shop so it could be looked at. You do great work. Thanks so much!
J. PakiamAugust 10, 2015
Today I was provided with excellent service at Motor Works and I truly appreciate it. It was discover that there was no urgency to replace the rear brakes/rotors on my automobile. Needless to say, I breathed a sign of relief. I am highly pleased with the efficient manner in which my automobile was serviced and the professionalism of the staff. You have definitely gained a permanent customer, who will refer others to Motors Works.
V. Brown-PendaAugust 10, 2015
Customer service is always consistently amazing! Thanks for keeping it quick and making it easy to understand the "car language". I keep getting Honda's because I can't imagine going somewhere else to service my car.
M. MillsAugust 10, 2015
Kind and Personal Attention…
We really appreciate the kind and personal attention and service. We couldn't think of going to another place to care for our cars.

Going Out of Their Way…
I have been coming to your shop ever since I have owned a Honda; the first one being in 1987! I've always appreciated the time your staff/employees have taken to go out of their way to accommodate to make each and every visit as hospitable as possible, less the expense of course and even that has always been worked out. I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how much your business and employees has been a pleasant part of my life for over 20 some odd years. Keep it up guys!

They’re like extended family…
Excellent. Scheduling was fine and with advance notice they provided a loaner car because I live far enough away so my car was in mid-morning and I didn't want to drive to and from Rockville during rush hour. I was kept informed of everything and went the next day to pick up my car, which felt much better when I picked it up. Easy, professional, friendly, specialize in Hondas and Toyotas and are very knowledgeable and accommodating.
I have been going to this shop since I purchased my used Honda (they did the pre-purchase inspection) and they have always been excellent and are like extended family. Well worth the distance I drive to them and I highly recommend them.
Note that they are closed on Fridays to provide quality of life for their employees, but they work well around this so it has never been a problem for me and probably aids in the attentiveness of the staff when they are open.

I needed to find a shop to service a 2004 Honda CR-V I purchased in July. I previously had a Volvo which I took to a Volvo mechanic. The car was running fine so I began with an oil change, just to get a feel for the shop.
I found the staff friendly and welcoming. While waiting for my vehicle I observed how other customers were treated and was quite impressed. They were providing a loaner vehicle to one person and the others seemed to be regular customers. One person was told of a situation with his car and they decided to "watch it", because it wasn't a dangerous problem.
After the oil change, I asked if they saw anything else, and I was told they weren't looking and that I could schedule a service visit in three months to look for any issues. I was a bit surprised because when I used to take my Volvo to the dealer for an oil change they routinely discovered expensive issues which had to be dealt with immediately.
I am satisfied that I have found the place I want to take my "new" Honda to in the future for honest service.

Courteous and Responsive…
Courteous and responsive staff. Repairs appear to have been done in a completely satisfactory manner and most importantly they did recommend extra repairs as has every dealer I've taken a car to over the past several years.

Everyone at Motor Works continues to meet my highest expectations. I also couldn't wait the couple of weeks until a loaner car was available and since I was there almost all day long they bought me lunch while I waited. What place of business would think of doing that? I sure don't know of any. Thank you Motor Works. You are the best.

I just want to thank the staff for taking me at 3:00 on a Thursday for an emergency muffler replacement. The staff had me in and out in under 90 minutes!!! Thank you so much!!!

Reliable, cost effective, honest, and nice…
(from email of LeisureWorld listserve conversation)
LeisureWorld resident: "Can anyone reccomend a reliable, reasonable Toyota service shop?"
Ms. Diane Harper: "Absolutely. Motor Works, Inc. on Lofstrand off of Taft (near this end of Gude Drive.) They only work on Hondas and Toyotas. I have been going to them for five years (since I first bought my current Honda) and they are absolutely reliable, cost effective, honest, and nice. They get great marks in Washington Consumer Checkbook and I found them through a neighbor and a list on the Car Guys list of great mechanics. They offer a free loaner car as needed."
(Ms. Harper forwarded the above message to another LeisureWorld resident -- her response to MWI when asked who reccomended us)
Ms V. Penda: "As promised, this is the person that sent information on your company. As you can see, she really marketed Motor Works, Inc."
(Ms. Harper's message to us)
"Yeah, it's true. I've been talking about you behind your back. Diane"

Makes a lot of sense…
I'm so glad you decided to replace all the dashboard bulbs at once. It makes a lot of sense to not have to pull that dashboard out again for another 12 years! Thanks!

Like Family… only better…

Others are fighting hard for second place…
We just bought a new 2013 Civic and it too will be serviced by you guys to the standards of excellence that we have come to expect. All others are fighting hard for second place.
(when asked how we could improve)
Open up on Fridays so the rest of the locals could avail themselves of quality and excellence in service.

Not sure what would happen without you…
I was an unscheduled appointment that day since my engine light went on and my car was bucking a little. Mike said "come on in" and I am so thankful that he did since my oil was low. Dave showed me how/told me how often to check the oil and where to add it if needed. Honestly, I am not sure what would have happened to my car without you all that day. Thank you!! PS: I hit 199,000 miles yesterday!

Consistently High Performance…
Very professionally done, can always count on them to deliver consistently high performance even during routine
service like oil change.
