For the longest time we only had one photo of our original shop on North Street. While on the Open Elgin tour, we saw an aerial photo of Elgin in the lobby of Anguaris Tech and in one tiny corner was our shop. It was taken around 1936 and you can see the two bay shop as well as the corner store.

It was a bittersweet day here at the shop yesterday as we celebrated 3rd generation owner Jack Kellenberger’s retirement. We wish him all the best as he transitions to his role as full time Papa to his five grandkids! Thank you for everything you did over the years to make Kellenberger Auto what is today. Congratulations, Jack! - Dave, Carlton, & the whole Kellenberger Team


Happy Thanksgiving! What are you most thankful for this year?


Today and every day, a huge thank you to all our veterans!


Did that pesky tire pressure light pop up on your dashboard this morning? Did you know that for every 10° the temperature drops a tire will lose about 1 pound of air pressure?? Stop by and have us inflate your tires to the proper level. As always, free air at Kellenberger's!

Congratulations on your retirement, Mark!! Mark has been one of our top technicians since 1985 and will certainly be missed at our shop. We wish you the best with whatever the next stage of life has in store and thank you so much for your many years of service!

Happy Independence Day, everyone!


All gave some... Some gave all... As we go about our day today, let's all try to remember the reason for the holiday.


Lloyd Kellenberger passed away Wednesday, May 19,2021. After leaving the Navy, he joined his father's repair shop and then partnered with his brother Bill to grow the business. Lloyd retired to Florida in the nineties. He will be missed, a true craftsman in everything he did.

Happy Easter, from all of your Kellenberger Auto family! One of our amaryllis plants bloomed just in time!


Have a safe and happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone!


Is that pesky clock in your car giving you a hard time to set? We are more than happy to help!


Throw back Thursday. While clearing out some old photos, we found this one of our second building. The Ludwig Dairy truck was the reason for many late nights for Herman as he kept their fleet running as they moved from horse drawn wagons to horsepower. We know the photo is from 1940 but have no idea where. If anyone has an old city directory and can find the address it would be appreciated.


Happy New Year!


It's time to winterize your vehicle! Illinois winters can be stressful enough without having to worry if your car will start and make it from Point A to Point B. Give us a call today to set up a time to make sure your vehicle is in tip-top shape!


Happy Independence Day! Be safe, everyone!
