    What People Say About Us


    • -Mark H.

      I've had Tim (ASE Master Technician) and Nate work on my vehicles and they've always done great work at reasonable prices. Before I recently traded my old Pontiac Vibe in to the dealer, I had these guys get everything in tip top condition and Kocourek gave me a really good price. When my son was up here visiting, the heat shield bracket to the muffler had come loose and was making a terrible noise. These guys knew exactly what it was, got it up on the lift and 10 minutes later, finished. $10 bucks. All without an appointment. I've seen big rigs in there, so they know what they're doing. Highly recommended.


    • -Trevor H.

      These guys run a tight ship and are very professional. They obviously have years of experience. Their customer service is fantastic and I would recommend them to anyone who needs there car worked on!


    • -Nick P.

      This is easily the best auto service within Marathon county, and I've been everywhere. The customer service is on par with a 5 star resort and hotel. Also when shopping around for the lowest price on a job or repair, this place always maintains the best price.


    • -Brad C.

      This is my go-to auto service center. They're reasonably priced, offer quality service, and most of all, they're honest.


    • -Jonathan K.

      West side auto has provided me excellent service time and time again...I couldn't be happier about their quality of work, great customer service, helpful attitude, and competitive pricing. I would recommend this shop above any others.


    • -Brett Y.

      This auto shop is one I trust. They always provide me options with their recommendation along with answering the whys. Highly recommended!


    • -Kyle S.

      I brought my Mercedes into West Side for the first time and they did a great job diagnosing and addressing my issue in a timely and professional manner. Staff is extremely accomodative and friendly as well as seemingly immensely knowledgeable. I no longer live in Wausau but if I did West Side Automotive would be my 'go to' shop for automotive-related repairs. Highly recommended.


    • -Samantha P.

      Excellent service. We're not from the area, had some trouble on Hwy 29 and Tim got us back on the road within the hour!


    • -Lori S.

      I was on my way home to Madison when handling problems with my car started. Even though it was Friday, and snowing, Tim got me in right away. I was back on the road in short order. The price was very reasonable and they also have the best waiting area I've experienced! Thank you very much!


    • -Lisa S.

      Tim & the guys are always so helpful and knowledgeable!! The prices are reasonable and my vehicles are taken care of in a timely fashion- they have always tried to accommodate my needs. I recommend this repair shop to anyone and everyone!!

  • According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
  • The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
  • Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
  • Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
  • Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
  • A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
  • Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
  • Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
  • Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
  • Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
  • Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
  • Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
  • Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
  • Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
  • Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
  • Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
  • Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
  • Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
  • Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
