Along with other NAPA Auto Care Centers in DeKalb, we donate $1 from every oil change to deserving local charities, such as Salvation Army and the Humane Society, with at least one charity receiving a check each month.

Proudly Serving DeKalb Since 1985

Our auto repair shop is located at 1150 South 4th St Rear in DeKalb, just off Route 23 South and about a mile north of I-88. (We’re in the back of the building, so don’t miss us.) In addition to DeKalb, we serve drivers from Sycamore, Cortland, Rochelle, and Malta. For students, we’re near NIU College. We are proud and lucky to serve an area where small, family-owned businesses like ours are an important part of the community. Thank you to everyone who makes DeKalb a great place to live and work!

We’d love for you to become part of our automotive family.
