Since 1961, Fox River Tire & Auto Repair has been known for delivering the highest level of professionalism, maintaining the highest standards for parts and services, and providing the highest degree of care for our customers.  As part of our customer service and commitment to you and your car, Fox River Tire & Auto Repair performs a complete vehicle inspection on every vehicle that comes into the shop. Because people rely on their cars for forth to work, to shuttle children, run errands, connect with friends and family and to travel…having an unexpected or catastrophic car failure can be stressful and inconvenient.

Our experienced team knows firsthand that a little bit of preventive maintenance and education can greatly reduce the chances of breakdown and can extend the life of your car. Our service advisors and technicians at Fox River Tire & Auto Repair provide tips and information on upcoming services that are recommended by your vehicle manufacturer and we always give you options when it comes to any service that is recommended.
