Jefferson Auto Service North Auto Mechanics

Get to Know Our Covington Auto Repair Shop Before You Need Us


Steve Fank, Sr., a mechanic with over 40 years of hands-on auto repair experience, and his wife Vicki opened Jefferson Auto Service North in Covington in September of 2009. Steve has been working on cars since he was 15 years old, and owning and running an auto repair shop is a lifelong dream. A true non-corporate mechanic, Steve had always worked for independent and family-owned auto repair shops, happy to offer drivers a dealership alternative. With his own business, he knew he wanted to continue the tradition of the trusted local auto repair shop, providing honest work at fair prices.

Steve’s friends all knew his goal was to own an auto repair shop. When the owner of a race car service facility in Covington wanted to get out of the business, a friend let Steve know, and he checked it out. He purchased the building and equipment at 1429 North Collins Boulevard the same day, and the rest is history.

“I love talking with customers, and helping them take smart care of their vehicles.”
— Steve Fank, Sr.
