Our History
Hi, I’m Josh Kildahl and I’d like to share with you how Auto Elite came to be. I started automotive repair and customizing in high school, fixing friends’ vehicles and building race cars for the stock car track. I also spent many nights and weekends fine tuning my skills restoring classic cars.

After high school I spent 12 years as superintendent golf course in northern Wisconsin, maintaining golf equipment and company vehicles. I also opened a repair shop, specializing in 4x4 upgrades and modernizing classic cars with late model drivetrains.

I later moved on to managing a larger, full-service fast-paced auto repair shop here in Stevens Point. I then realized that I wanted to spend my life bringing the old fashioned way of doing business back to the Stevens Point area.

I believe in honest repairs and finding the root of the issue, not just replacing a part that the diagnostic computer said failed. I work hard to emphasize these values to the technicians I hire; we all work as a team to ensure that when your vehicle leaves Auto Elite, it has been fixed right the first time.

My wife Jessica and our 6 children are very important aspects of the daily operations of Auto Elite. Jessica handles the daily book keeping, customer hospitality, and customer shuttling when needed. My children, though very young, are here on regular basis to help with keeping the shop and waiting area clean; they look forward to being able to help with repairs and vehicle maintenance soon!
