We Work for You!
THERE is nothing worse than getting into your car, truck, or SUV and discovering you have a problem. On top of it all, it usually happens at the worst possible time. 

A problem worse than this is not knowing who you can trust to fix it right...

When this happens, you need: 

A shop you can trust not to rip you off. 
A shop that will fix it right the first time. 
A shop that will let you know honestly if you have any other trouble brewing under the hood. 
A shop that genuinely cares about your safety and your wallet. 

My name is Jared English and I’m the owner of A-1 Automotive. I’m so glad you’ve stopped by our website.  

A-1 Automotive is different from other shops here in Southern Illinois/Western Kentucky area. Sure, on the outside we look pretty much the same as the next repair shop. But, as far as I’m about to show you, we’re very different on the inside. 

You see, we specialize in individually customizing and performing scheduled maintenance that meets your specific needs. We’re 100% committed to diagnosing today’s complex vehicles with precision accuracy and speedy turnaround times. 

To make sure we can fulfill this commitment, we took the plunge and purchased the same state of the art equipment used by leading dealership technicians.
