About Our Shop in Elgin, IL

Over 20 years of Serving Elgin, IL

We are a family owned and operated business that opened in 1996 at this location. When we realized how we were going to go about establishing our shop, it was time to come up with a name. We wrote down a list of names 3 pages long. After many long and numerous discussions, we decided none of the names were suitable. Finally, we came up with K and S because of the tool manufacturer SK tools. To be unique, we decided to swap the K and S and add Autocare. Later, we became a NAPA AutoCare Center. Just another way we can serve you better using cutting-edge technology, continuing education and training for our technicians, and our state-of-the-art equipment. Our automotive technicians have combined experience of over 65 years in the industry. We are like your vehicle’s doctor taking preventive measures to avoid potentially expensive repairs in the future.

The Priority is You

KS Autocare is the dealer alternative auto repair shop that you can count on. Our highest priority is treating you like family and make your vehicle run better than when it came in. Being able to fix your car is our job, but the most memorable part of our quality auto service is you. We have failed if we do not meet and even exceed your expectations every time. Our reputation for delivering this level of care to customers is what drives customers to return to us for any questions, concerns, or repair solutions because our relationship is built on trust. We understand it is becoming increasingly difficult to find a trustworthy mechanic these days. Bringing your car into a shop is stressful enough without having to worry about who will be working on it. Our shop focuses on addressing your needs in an efficient and careful manner. That way you can feel satisfied driving out of our facility knowing you and your vehicle were treated with the utmost care and regard. We want you to know how valuable you are to us. To increase the trust that much further, we offer a 3 year / 36,000 mile warranty on all services.

We always put the needs of our customers first and our main focus is always YOU! Let all of your repair needs and maintenance services rest on our broad shoulders. We understand that it is stressful fitting us in to your busy schedule but we got you covered!
