About 5 Star Auto Care in Cincinnati, OH

5 Star Auto Care is a family owned and operated auto repair shop.

Located in Cincinnati, Ohio our full service automotive facility has been fixing customers’ cars and trucks in the OHio are for over 25 years.

Deron Prewitt (owner and operator of 5 Star Auto Care) has been obsessed with cars for as long as he can remember… When he bought his first car at the age of 15, he knew instantly which direction his career was headed.

In his senior year of high school, Deron was awarded one of six countrywide full scholarships for automotive and truck technology to Lincoln Technical Institute in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Deron decided to open his own shop when he saw how the “big repair shops” treated their customers… He knew he could do much better by treating each and every customer as an individual, with the attention and respect they deserved.

He is very family oriented; Deron has been married for 23 years. His wife, Patty Prewitt, does the bookkeeping and marketing for the shop. Together they have two sons, one daughter, one son-in-law and three perfect grandchildren!
