Manager Paulie McManus
Advanced Auto Service & Tire Centers - Prescott Valley

Paulie has been a part of the Advanced Auto family for about 5 years. He started out on the ground floor working as a General Services tech. In this position he performed basic oil changes, mounted and balanced tires, and performed basic maintenance inspections. From there he was promoted to a tech apprentice specializing in brakes and minor repairs. While he was studying for all of the different ASE certifications, Paulie took his love for talking with people and became a front counter associate. From there he was quickly promoted to the Service Manager.

Paulie’s first car was a 1974 Honda Civic Hatchback. We asked him if he modified the car and he said there really wasn’t a reason to since it already pushed out a whopping 54 horses at the front wheels. Honda’s tagline when selling the new car was “it will get you where you’re going.” From Paulie’s perspective, that’s about all it did.

His earliest memories of working on cars though came from his grandfather. He owned a 1967 Pontiac Tempest station wagon with a decent size 389 V8 engine under the hood. As Paulie remembers it, the latch for the hood was just the right height to provide his grandfather with a not-so-nice little bump every time the two of them worked under the hood. Eventually his grand father took to working with a shop rag on his head as his personal bumper protection against the ever present threat of the hood latch menace. His favorite quote from his grand father was “the best way to clean your hands is with a sandwich.”

Paulie’s taken that hard work ethic he learned from his grand father (pushing through adversity) and brought it with him to Advanced Auto. Give Paulie a call at 928-772-9013. Whatever issues you may be experiencing; he’s got the background and the knowledge to help get it solved.
