More on Our Specialties

  • Alignments


    Regular wheel alignments keep your vehicle running safely and efficiently by reducing tire wear, improving gas mileage, and promoting safe driving conditions. Left untreated, alignment problems have the potential to turn into suspension issues because driving with wheels out of alignment puts stress on suspension system components. We have state-of-the-art wheel alignment equipment to handle alignments precisely and accurately.

  • Brake Repair & Service

    Brake Repair & Service

    Brakes unavoidable wear out over time. How long they last is based on numerous factors, such as where you live and how you brake. For this reason, it is necessary to service your brakes regularly. We are familiar with the driving conditions here in DeKalb and know that your brakes need care. So, we provide a complimentary brake inspection with every auto service to make sure that any problem is addressed before it becomes a major concern.

  • General Maintenance

    General Maintenance

    General maintenance, such as oil changes, filter changes, and fluid flushes, is simply what the manufacturer of your vehicle suggests getting done to keep your vehicle performing optimally over the course of its lifetime. And it’s truly the best way to avoid serious breakdowns and minimize the high costs associated with major auto repairs. At Barb City Automotive, we provide the general maintenance services you need to keep your car running well.

  • Struts


    Barb City Automotive provides comprehensive vehicle suspension repair services, including shocks, struts, steering, and more. If you have a vehicle that isn’t handling, steering, or turning as it should, or if you’re experiencing jolts and bumps as you drive, make an appointment today. Front-end issues are not only uncomfortable, they’re potentially dangerous. Let us check your shocks and struts and make sure your car is safe and driving smoothly.

  • Tune-ups


    Regular tune-ups are essential to ensure the safety and dependability of your vehicle, yet many people consider tune-ups to be a low-priority auto service. Our tune-up service includes a thorough and comprehensive inspection of all your vehicle’s systems to make sure they are in proper working order. If our mechanics notice something is wrong, we’ll let you know, get your approval to fix the issue, or discuss with you a timeframe to handle the auto repair.

  • Tires


    Properly maintained tires are critical to the safety and operability of your vehicle. If your tires are worn, cracked, or out of balance, they can seriously affect your ability to drive. We sell and install new and used tires, ensuring you select the right tires for your needs and budget. Our tire techs also inspect, rotate, and repair tires to help you get the most from your tire investment. When it comes to tires, you can count on us for affordability and fast service.
