SJM AutoWerks provides auto repair and restoration to McHenry County and surrounding areas.

Meet the Business Owner: Steve J.

I have worked in dealerships since 1984 for BMW, Mercedes Benz, Audi, Porsche, Lexus, Toyota and Domestic manufacturers. An opportunity presented itself in 2016 to purchase the business from A1 Tire and Auto and change the name to SJM AutoWerks. After purchasing the business, I was able to add the ability to offer repair services on European, Hybrid, and Classic vehicles. As well as continuing to service Domestic and Import vehicles. I demand that my staff treat our customers as if they were family. I also expect our technicians to stay up to date with all the changes manufactures are doing to their vehicles. That is why, all the technicians, including myself, continually attend automotive technical seminars both locally and out of state.

We offer services that some other repair shops do not, such as financing, pickup and delivery services for those pressed for time but need to have their vehicle repaired and a shuttle service that can take customers home or to the train station. SJM AutoWerks is truly a family business. My son Nathan and my nephew Tony work in the front, as service writers. While my wife Mare, works in the office on the weekends handling all the business paperwork. Since I enjoy working on cars, you will find me in the shop working with the technicians. Come on in and give us a try and let us know what you think.
