Have you run the codes on it to see why the check engine light is on? If not i would recommend doing that. It could possibly help you further understand what is going on. If you don't have a code scanner yourself then go to AutoZone since they will run the codes for you for free.

also on that note the guy says that it might be the spark plugs even thought the mechanic said that they were fine when he did the plugs


do you think it could be the plug wires

IF you have a warranty on the car, its best to take it there, thats what its for, I wouldn't take it to a local mechanic if you have a warranty, because if its still screwed up after it leaves the dealer, you can take it back again. The local shop could just say its nothing they did and charge you for it.
