Message From the Shop
Barb City Automotive first welcomed DeKalb area drivers in December of 1985. We started with one technician, our owner, John Volkert, and ever since, we have been building our reputation for excellence in servicing and repairing all types of vehicles, both import and domestic. As a family-owned business, we always put family first, including yours. Our customers are truly our number one priority. We offer a variety of routine automotive repairs, like oil changes, brakes, exhaust, shocks, and flushes, as well as computer diagnostics and drivability problems. Barb City Automotive also performs the manufacturer’s maintenance required to keep your warranty in effect. On most repairs, we offer a 12 month/12,000 mile warranty, and because we’re a NAPA Auto Care Center, we also have a 24 month/24,000 mile peace of mind warranty.
