Family Owned and Operated Since 1988
The Fogarty family has staked their name and reputation on unbeatable quality automotive and tire sales and service that focuses on our customers’ needs. We have provided the most advanced automotive and tire technology since 1988.
Tim and Patsy Fogarty started Fogarty’s Garage after purchasing a shell of a building.  Working very hard to clean up the grounds and rebuilding the entire inside from concrete floors to ceiling they opened their doors on June 1, 1988. Before they even had the doors officially opened they had customers coming in wondering if they were open enough to fix a tire or do a small engine repair. Of course they obliged and business was off and running with Patsy in the office and Tim and two employees in the shop.
Tim is very knowledgeable in the automotive and tire industry. He loves to visit with the customers and wants to make sure that all their needs are met with the best products and applications. We are a dealer for Michelin, Michelin Ag, Uniroyal, BF Goodrich, Goodyear, Firestone, Firestone Ag, Bridgestone, Carlisle, Multimile, General, Continental and other major brands are also available.
Fogarty’s Garage was Pontiac’s first "no appointment" quick oil change station. With an in-ground pit, fitting two vehicles on it at a time, the quick oil change bays were filled all the time. All you have to do is bring your car in and they change the oil in a matter of minutes and while they are at it the technicians check the whole car over with a free maintenance check and they look for anything that might be getting ready to break or anything that might be leaking. They check everything including all lights, fluid levels, tire wear and pressure, belts and hoses, air cleaners, etc., all as a part of the routine oil change. The washer fluid is also filled for free.
Fogarty’s have grown to employ 12 people at our family owned business and we are proud of them all. They are automotive technicians, tire specialists, oil change technicians, alignment technicians, tow truck operators, a service writer and great girls in the office to greet you and help you get to the right person. One of our employees, Terry Moore, has been with us since two weeks before we opened and we also have many long time employees such as Ann Householder who has been in the office for 20 years. We like to treat our employees like family.
We have a wonderful, clean waiting area to relax in while we work on your vehicle. Even the women that come into our shop feel at ease because we have such a nice, friendly atmosphere in our waiting area. We have a large variety of up-to-date magazines to browse and several people come on their lunch hour with their lunch in hand to eat while we are changing their oil.
