MEET THE TEAM

Rick Kilbourn, Owner

  • Rick started working for the company in 1974 working as an automotive technician for the former owners Bruce and Harold Pourcho. He left the company in 1980 to pursue his dreams of owning his own repair shop. That dream turned in to two full service Sunoco service stations. One was located in Westland MI. the other in Birmingham MI. When Bruce decided to retire in 1996 Rick felt it was time to go back to his roots purchasing Bruce and Harold's Auto Repair and renaming it 4th Street Auto. Rick is a graduate of Michigan Career Institute (1975). He is also a Certified ASE and Michigan State Master mechanic. Rick's hobbies are restoring old race cars and racing his legend race car. www.michiganlegends.com

What Our Customers Are Saying

Sick of the dealership kicking us around, we brought our car in to figure out what was wrong with it. They were extremely quick to identify the problems and very honest in their recommendations. Will certainly be bringing our cars back for future work/diagnosis.

Neighborhood treasure since 1973.

-Kevin L.

Great service!


-Shaan R.

The mechanics here are extremely friendly, knowledgeable, explanatory, and honest. They tried to save me money at every turn and went above and beyond in providing me and my vehicle with top quality service. I wouldn't take my car anywhere else, and I live 30 min away.


-Ed L.

I am SO thrilled and happy with 4th street auto. They are there when you need them in a pinch, and they are 100% honest and fair with their pricing. THANK YOU 4th street auto! :D


-L. Scherer

4th street auto is a great place to bring your car for service. They complete the work for what they said they would charge and they fix what they said they would fix on time. The attitude is friendly and helpful.


-Richard W.

I have been on my own for 34 years. When I found 4th Street Auto Care Center it was God sent. Bill and the staff are very friendly and caring and I thank God always for leading me to them. I feel that they are extremely knowledgeable. My car has always been thoroughly fixed and they always make me feel that they are looking out for me.


-Myrna K.

I have been going to 4th Street Auto for about 8 years now. These guys are amazing! They are honest, experienced, nice, fair and fast. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone!


-Karen F.

I made an appointment with 4th Street Auto for my car to be worked on. I explained what I thought was wrong and left.Within an hour they called and gave me an estimate and explained what I really needed. Bill was more than helpful. I would highly suggest going to 4th Street Auto to any of my friends or co-workers. You can tell they care and are reasonably priced. My car runs like a champ now!


-Carol M.

This is not only a top notch auto shop, they are incredibly kind, honest and fair. They do excellent work! If they feel someone else will be able to perform a better, more cost efficient service, they will send you to one of their trusted associates. They sent me to just such a place for some muffler work, and it was fantastic. I highly recommend 4th Street Auto Care Center.


-Matt M.

My wife & I have been bringing our cars & trucks here for years without any problems. Always treated well, getting the vehicles repaired correctly & at a reasonable cost. Highly recommended to our neighbors & friends


-David S.

Wonderful service. Would highly recommend to anyone.


-James M.

Really good place to take your vehicle. Friendly and honest. I would highly recommend them to anyone!


-Craig B.

I have been taking my cars here for years and have never had any issues. They do quality work and are honest about what needs to be done, and do it at a fair price. When Vinsetta Garage closed on Woodward, the owner recommended his customers to take their business to 4th Street, and that should tell you a lot.
