About Advanced Auto Repair

Advanced Auto Repair is an auto repair and tire shop located at 300 West Colfax St. in Palatine, IL. Since the beginning, our business has been focused on building strong customer relationships and providing the highest quality of workmanship on each and every automotive repair. As a tire dealer, we take pride in offer a great selection of tires at competitive prices. From brakes and tires to engine diagnostics and roadside assistance, we're there when you need us for complete car care. 

Owners Jim Stepp and Rodney Knesper had worked together at another shop where they became great friends and decided to strike out on their own. They started a small shop in 1993 where they were the techs and owners at the same time. They hired our first employee after one year and added another the next. Within five years, we grew to four techs and two service writers.

After outgrowing our original facility in 2000, we bought a larger one and moved down the street. Today, we have eight techs and three service writers, our own tow truck, three loaner cars, and more than 10,000 customers in our database.
