As a lifelong member of the Kettering community, Joe is committed to providing customers with personalized attention, high-quality service and competitive costs. From dump trucks to scooters, if it has wheels, Joe can fix it.

Joe’s service is centered around one thing: constant improvement. The team at Hawks Auto doesn’t just repair your car and fix what’s broken: they’ll improve it. And the same goes for Joe, who regularly completes education and training to stay up-to-date and informed about the latest technology, skills and services in the industry.

Joe, who learned how to be a skilled mechanic from his father, never stopped tinkering with vehicles. From a young age, Joe has always been happiest when he has a wrench in his hand and grease on his fingers.

With formal factory training through General Motors and Ford, Joe spent the first part of his career fine-tuning his technician skills at various dealerships. When his passion outgrew his position, he opened Hawks Auto.

When you leave Hawks Auto, be sure to check under your car before you drive off.

At least that’s what Joe Hawk’s mom would recommend. From the time he was 4 years old, Joe had such a love for cars and motorcycles that he would pretend to do work on his parents’ cars—a passion that forced his mom to check for her child-mechanic every time she left the house.

Customer Reviews

  • Great neighbor. Very fair business man. I recommend him highly!

    Mick Fisher

  • This is an extremely clean and well equipped service center. The owner makes every effort to place customer satisfaction as his highest concern. He managed to replace my rear brakes and do an oil change, plus checking other fluids for well under what his competitors would have charged for far less work. He even did one smaller repair for no cost while he was doing the other services. This shop has an entirely different feel than the larger franchised car repair centers, and it was a very welcome difference!

  • Honest at a reasonable price. He will take excellent care of your car/truck.

    Stacey Riegle Alfano
