Customers and Reviews

When we moved here about 10 years ago, we had to find another mechanic. Trust and honesty are big issues to my husband and me, a friend recomended Drive Auto, and we tried them out. We have been very satisfied with them for years now, they do what they say they are gonna do, and at very reasonable prices, we would not take our cars to any other mechanic!…. I would recomend Drive Auto to anyone looking for a good shop for sure! LISA F.

I know when I go to DRIVE i get the right service for my car and with the people I can trust. They have always been able to work with me around my schedule. Overall, DRIVE is a great shop and they will stand by you and your car when you need it the most!

D.R.I.V.E. Automotive’s Customer Service cannot be beat. Vern and his crew are always ready and willing to assist with any type of repair and they offer expert advice on routine maintenance for your vehicle. The company places the customer first and they go out of their way to accommodate your busy schedule. I highly recommend their service! Thanks D.R.I.V.E. Automotive for doing such a great job with my car! KLADAMS

DRIVE Provides Excellent service once again!!! I have been bringing my 2 personal vehicles to Vern and crew since they opened and have always received high quality work in a timely manner. My latest experience was this.. The Fleet company in charge of my work truck wanted me to take my truck to the local dealer for a warranty repair. I figured while it was in I’d have them work on another issue with my heater. The dealership replaced thermostat and didnt even bother to see if that fixed the issue.( It DIDN’T) I left the dealership and took it straight to DRIVE Automotive, where Vern and crew diagnosed the problem and had me back on the road in no time. Kind of nice having heat in February, Thanks Vern!! Bottom line…Don’t stray from Drive Automotive, you’ll regret it! BEN

I have been bringing my car to Drive Automotive for four years. My car has alot of miles on it and I want to keep it as long as I can. I rely on my car so much since I am a single parent and I have no back up way to get to work. Vern completely understands this and always tries to fix my car same day. Its nice to know that it will get fixed the right way the first time. CAROL

Auto Repair in DeKalb, IL. Drive Automotive I had drive automotive in DeKalb, IL. work on my 1998 Dodge Pickup. A tune up, new tires, wheel alignment, A/C work. They had great prices on the tires and got all the work done quickly. I’ve been driving the truck for 6 months now and it’s still going great. Overall, I’m very pleased with their work. DJ

Good service I have a 2001 Tundra serviced with timing belt, water pump, brakes, and alignment. Truck is solid. Vern took the time to show me the worn replaced parts and to explain issues in layman’s terms. Highly recommend! STEVE

Had a fantastic experience at Drive Automotive. They quoted me the lowest quote in town for a fuel pump replacement, were honest in their appraisal and got the job that very day. I will be taking my car back there whenever I need it worked on.  KAY

*update* It’s been just shy of a year since i’ve started taking my vehicles (2 personal, 1 work) to Vern and crew and they continually do an amazing job at all times. Their wait times are always less then i’d expect them to be and their work has been flawless. On my last review I stated that it was nice to know that I found a local shop that I know will take care of any future vehicle needs that I have, And that continues to be true. Thank you Vern and crew for running an amazing shop in our town! JOSH
