James Neubauer

Owner

Jim leads the team with over 36 years of experience. He grew up in the automotive field, starting out at the age of 14 working at the family’s Exxon station on Route 40, pumping gas and changing flat tires. When he turned 18 he moved into the repair bays and serviced customers’ vehicles while working for his father. In 1989, his father retired and sold Jim the Exxon station business. Over the years Jim worked and continued to grow the gasoline and service bay business. In 2001, Jim needed to expand and focus more on the core business, auto repair.

“I picked up all the pieces as we settled down here on Chevrolet Drive where we currently reside. While the shoes before me have been a challenge to fill, I continue to work on filling our Legacy that was built by my father and grandfather. I am proud to be part of the Neubauer heritage.”

Sarah Warfield

General Manager

Sarah started with Neubauer’s in 2000. She came on board with over 15 years in the customer service field. She appreciates the old hot rods, the 1972 Chevrolet Nova SS with a 350 engine has always been her dream car. She learned the automotive business from Jim Neubauer. Sarah obtained her AMI Accredited Automotive Manager degree in 2005. She has taken extensive training from the Elite Training Seminars and joined Ask Patty to make Neubauer’s a Female Friendly Shop. Sarah takes great pride in the relationships that she has formed over the years with many customers and their families.
