Jan 15, 2016

Dan Barnette owner of Barnette's Remanufactured Engines does not practice good business. He does not stand behind his work. Once he has your money he could care less about you and any concerns you may have regarding the engine. In my 30 years of service within the automotive service...

Barnette's Engines / Remanufactured Engine


I had a Barnette's Engine installed in my 2002 Dodge Stratus. The motor runs great. I had a certified Mechanic install my engine and could not believe the quality of the engine that I received for the price that I paid. I could not be happier with the engine. I am positive that all of...

Barnette's Remanufactured Engines / Engine rebuild ripoff


Engine had a bad valve on the driver side when it arrived from them. Then the head gasket on the left side failed after 100 miles. Their workmanship is poor and they don't honor their work, word, or the warranty. They don't want to talk after the sale. I do not recommend them.
