Thanks for a job well done.

I had an excellent experience, however I never received a call back with an estimate as i was promised. The staff is friendly and they do good work for a fair price.

My truck broke down far from home and had it towed to your facility. It was repaired at a fair price and have had no trouble since.

The Arndt team agreed to an installation they had not done before, researched the best way to proceed, procured necessary items that were not provided, and performed an incredibly neat job. I am very satisfied.

The pricing for an alignment was higher than all other shops in dekalb and sycamore. So, I was not happy to hear that other shops charged 25 dollars less for the same service.

Thank you for having me in last minute

They inspected my car and immediately explained what was wrong to me, and showed me the part that needed to be replaced. They worked hard to find the cheapest part I could afford and got my car repaired as fast as possible since it was labor day weekend. I was very happy with the job done on my car.
08/27/18
All of the staff that I met was very professional, I was treated with respect, and my car was done when they said it would be done. I really appreciated that and I would and have already recommended friends.
08/25/18
My car broke down and had to be towed to Arndt without an appointment. It was a complicated repair, yet I was surprised how quickly they were able to fix it. Arndt is the repair shop I trust with all my major repairs.
08/04/18
Done.

Message From the Shop
How it All Began... Arndt Automotive officially opened our doors in February of 1989. It all started when owner Andy Arndt was thirteen years old riding in his Uncle Jim’s 1961 Ford Starliner with a balanced and blueprinted 390 and a four on the floor. As soon as he felt Uncle Jim drop the clutch, he was hooked and his love for cars began. When he was sixteen he started working on the trucks and tractors at his dad’s farm along with various other cars. Since cars were the only thing he was really interested in, it was easy for him to decide that was what he was going to do to make a living. Andy got involved in mechanics projects in the 4H and FFA programs. He also took classes at Kishwaukee College while he was still enrolled in high school, graduating in 1982 with an associate’s degree in agricultural mechanics. From there he went to work at a farm tractor dealership during his internship and then to a Ford dealership. After working at a couple of dealerships he realized he wanted to be his own boss and started his own business. Andy started working out of his father’s shop on the farm until he was ready to get his own building. In 1988, he purchased a building in Malta, right off of route 38. He worked for the next year turning it into a suitable shop. Starting out with no employees, things were tough, working six to seven days a week and many nights. Putting all his time and money into the business helped the shop grow into what it is today. 29 years later Arndt Automotive is a family owned shop with much of Andy’s family working day in and day out. This shop strives to keep up with the consistently changing technology to accurately diagnose, repair, and maintain vehicles at a fair price. Every day Andy passes on his knowledge of cars and the importance of trying to fix and maintain the customers’ cars as he would his own, to his employees. We’re always happy to tell you more about our beginnings. Just ask if you want us to share more of our story with you.
