Local and Family-Owned Since 1957

1957: Russell Cook and Jo Straveler co-founded J & R Auto Service in downtown Oshkosh.
1988: Paul Cook took over the business from his Father.
2001: J & R Auto Service was moved to its current location on Main Street.
20??: When Paul retires his son Brad will be taking over, keeping it in the family for 3 generations!

Since the beginning, the business has been built on honest, quality, and reputable work that they always stand behind. 

J & R Auto Service continue to serve their customers based on the same principles as our founder.  We pride ourselves on our quality work and the reputation we’ve built over the years. J & R Auto serves a wide range of local customers in the Oshkosh area, including many UW-Oshkosh students needing service away from home. 

Our goal at J & R Auto is to build long lasting customer relationships.  We know each of our customers and the history of their vehicles!  Our best advertising is word of mouth, which starts with all of our valued customers. 

If you feel your car repair is not done right… tell me, not your friends
