We live and breathe cars. We believe in quality and honesty above all else. Whether you’re a car enthusiast, or simply want to keep your car running for as long as possible, we are committed to servicing your car with the same expertise and excitement we have for our own cars.
In other words, we’re car geeks … constantly evolving our business, investing in the latest technology, increasing our professional expertise, and offering our knowledge base to other local mechanics as they grow.
Our goal is to build lasting relationships with our customers based on honest recommendations and high-quality service. We aren’t your typical one-stop auto repair shop — we want you to feel good about the level of care you and your car receive so that you feel confident coming back for all your car care needs.
Josh fixed his first car when he was 8 years old and never looked back. His parents’ car kept overheating and Josh decided he was going to figure it out. He grabbed the family tool box and started removing parts until he found a leaky water pump. He uninstalled it from the car and showed it to his (shocked) dad when he got home from work that night. They went to the parts store to get a new one and his dad challenged him to put it back together. After reinstalling the new water pump himself, the family car was back on the road.
Josh started professionally fixing cars in 2004. He graduated from Madison College in 2008 with an Automotive Technician Diploma and his ASE Master Certification. He then worked in a variety of shops ranging from small shops to large dealerships, including 15 years at Honda. He has taken the best experiences from all of his years in the automotive industry and decided to open his own shop. In 2017 Top Tier Automotive was born!
Stacy fell in love with cars as soon as she got behind the wheel. Her first car was a Honda Civic del sol and she started modifying it as soon as she could. Also, she has been riding motorcycles since she was a kid on the back of her father's bike, and then on her own for over 18 years. She is a 5th generation motorcycle rider, and 3rd generation female rider!
She graduated from Madison College with degrees in Small Business Entrepreneurship, Photography, & Marketing. The photographs hanging above the chairs in the waiting room are her work. Starting in 2023 she moved from behind the scenes to the front desk full-time.
Sam (Left) moved from Phoenix to Madison in 2021. After experiencing her first Wisconsin winter, she wanted a more capable 4-wheel drive vehicle. Sam traded her Mitsubishi Lancer for her dream car — a Subaru WRX and began to learn more about vehicles. She got a job in the car industry in 2022 as a dealership service scheduler. Wanting to get more hands-on, she transferred to the Service Advisor position two months later. Her shop of choice was Top Tier Automotive for her many car troubles, including an engine replacement. Once an opening became available, she applied and started as an advisor at the shop in 2023.
Joe started working on cars with his Dad in the 80's. He enjoyed figuring out the problems and getting his hands dirty. After spending 10 years in the Navy and some time in the healthcare field Joe decided it was time for a career change. He decided to get back to his roots and start wrenching again. In 2019 he graduated from UTI in Diesel/Industrial Technology and has been enjoying the field ever since. He loves the opportunity to work on diesel vehicles when they come in.
In 2020, our auto repair shop needed to move to a bigger facility and we are proud to be open at our new location at 5506 County Road CV in Madison!
Come see why so many trust Top Tier Automotive with their vehicles!
