We didn’t start out towing cars. The first two years at Silver Lake Oil, we confined our services to our shop in Oconomowoc. Within two years, we saw that having a tow truck would make us even more convenient to our customers. We saw that we could come out into the community to meet you where you need us: on the road. Whether the engine won’t turn over or you’ve just been in a collision, our drivers will arrive as soon as possible. We know there’s nothing worse than being stranded! After we carefully hook up your vehicle to our truck, we can take you wherever you need to go. If what you need is quality vehicle repair, we can offer to bring your car back to any one of our four locations: Hartland, Brookfield, Oconomowoc and New Berlin. Our ASE-certified technicians will help diagnose the issue and offer their opinion on the services that will get you back on the road. Our staff is always dedicated to your customer satisfaction. Call us today at (262) 510-2012!
After our customers have called us for a tow once, whatever the reason, they tend to ask how they can prevent needing us in the future. How can they prevent engine failure, a blown tire, or any number of things that can leave you stranded on the side of the road? Some vehicle issues are unavoidable, but with regular preventative maintenance, you can make them less likely. Our technicians put together a list of the most important services to keep your vehicle in peak performance.
Oil changes make a huge difference in the performance of your vehicle. If you go too long between visits, your oil can become thicker, darker, and even pick up bits of debris as it cycles through your engine. Old oil can begin to clog parts of your engine and eventually even prevent it from running altogether.
Regular tire rotations ensure each of your tires is wearing evenly. If it is not rotated, a tire will experience all of its stress in the same area, and that area will become weaker. The weak area will be much more vulnerable to a blow-out. Regular rotation means the stress is evenly distributed, so your tires wear evenly.
Our technicians include brake checks on every regular maintenance plan because they are essential to the safety of your vehicle. Your ability to stop quickly and safely will be your best chance to avoid a collision. Avoiding collisions is the best way to avoid needing a tow! Especially in New Berlin, Wisconsin, the roads are dangerous for many months out of the year, and they are even more dangerous if you can’t stop safely. Come by our shop today at 15650 W National Avenue to speak with our ASE-certified technicians about the best services to you don’t need our towing service!

They were able to put a patch on my tire instead of replacing it, which saved me a lot of money. Everyone was very professional and knowledgeable, which I appreciate a lot. And they gave me some delicious chocolate chip cookies when I picked up my car! 10/10
Very efficient and knowledgeable Josh the manager was very polite I would go back there again and I would tell all my friends!
This was the first time using this business and I was impressed. They gave me a detailed lay out with pictures as to what needed to be fixed, ranked from high priority to low priority. They let me decided what I wanted to be done. No pushy salesman. I would highly recommend.
I took our Subaru in for new tires and brakes. Scheduling was simple. I received a call from Evan the morning of the appointment, verifying the type of tires I wanted, before I even dropped the car off. Their online inspection report was great, as I could look over their findings, and recommended maintenance items before speaking with the shop. I received a few calls throughout the day with status updates and was able to pick the car up the same day. Bonus - their military discount saved me s... Read More
I had tires shipped to Silver Lake from Tire Rack for mounting, balancing and installation on a 2005 Chevy Express AWD. The appointment was made promptly, the work was performed without any issues and they did not attempt to up-sell additional services. That is a big win for me! They did exactly what I asked for with no hassle. Brilliant! I will use their services in the future.
I've always had a great experience taking my vehicles here. They are honest, do great work and very professional. I also enjoy that they have courtesy cars. The nearby dealerships make you rent from their car rental business.
My car was towed to this AAA approved center. I experienced a friendly, competent, courteous, and professional staff from the lady at the desk to the technicians and manager. The diagnosis and subsequent service were right on. They also solved a nonworking radio, which my car dealership said would cost me a significant amount to fix. Silver Lake quickly diagnosed the problem and solved the issue at no additional cost.. I am enjoying my radio and the extra money I saved by their excellent ... Read More
I called several other places that gave me very extended lead times to fix a nail in my tire. When I called Silver Lake they got me in first thing the next morning. Their communication is excellent and the repair was done on time. Customer service was excellent and I will happily recommend them and use them again.
Can't say enough great things about Silver Lake Auto! Best experience I've had at an auto shop. The manager, Matt and the staff are helpful, knowledgeable and friendly and the service was timely, efficient and thorough. I was at my wits end with my car, taking it from place to place trying to solve an ongoing issue that no one seemed to be able to diagnose. They were able to get me in and provide me with a detailed diagnostic report on my car, which included things that needed immediate atten... Read More
Front brakes, class IV hitch, and some other repairs/items. They were awesome, super professional. Clean. On time. Oh yeah, and everything works. Chris was awesome to work with. The whole team has been. They help each other and have each other's back when someone is busy.
