Owners Steve and Julie Poe started their business with a small two-bay shop on Buffalo Street and a dream for success. In just a few years they had expanded Steve's Auto Care to a building just west of Pierceton, where five lifts and extra space allowed them to add tire and alignment services to their menu of auto maintenance.
The husband-and-wife duo didn't stop there; they relocated to an even larger facility in Warsaw, where highly trained staffers—including an ASE-certified master technician—fix and maintain cars. At the current NAPA AutoCare Center location, the crew's purview includes repairs for AC systems, engines, and brakes for imported,
domestic, and extraterrestrial vehicles.
The Poe family's dedication to customer satisfaction is evident in the comfortable waiting room, where guests relax on leather-style sofas with a complimentary cup of hot coffee or tea to watch TV or use the free WiFi. They've even designed a colorful Kids Korner, complete with a chalkboard where youngsters can draw up blueprints for hybrid-powered training wheels.
The business has also given back to the community by hosting events, including SafeAssured, a complimentary child identification program, as well as an event to support US military personnel.
