Modern Technology, Old School Service

Our technicians train at least six times a year to stay up-to-date with modern technology, but when it comes to service, we’re pretty old school. We make a point of treating people fairly and honestly, and we like to take the time to talk and really get to know our customers. Moreover, we don’t want automotive service to be a huge inconvenience for you, so we offer:

  • Financing for Repairs
  • Pick-up and Drop-off
  • Maintenance Specials
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Shuttle Service
  • TV & Coffee


Local Impact, National Warranty

Barb City Automotive is a NAPA Auto Care Center, which means we’re held to a higher standard than your average auto repair shop. You can also count on the 24 month/24,000 mile NAPA warranty when you bring your car to us. It’s free with your qualifying repair or service work, and it may even extend up to 36,000 miles.

Along with other NAPA Auto Care Centers in the DeKalb area, we donate $1 from every oil change to deserving local charities, with at least one charity receiving a check each month. So when you visit Barb City Automotive for maintenance services, you’re not just helping your car, you’re helping our community! We’ve been part of the program for six years, and it’s one of the most rewarding things we do.

Proudly Serving the DeKalb-Sycamore Area Since 1985
