Patriot Auto and Truck Care has come to Dover at 497 S. Dupont Highway.

Patriot Auto and Truck Care is a family-owned and operated business with more than 35 years experience. Doug and Kathy De Angelis relocated from New Castle in 2017 and purchased the building from its previous owner. The full-service shop’s services include engine and electrical repair, inspections, brake and suspension services, heating and cooling system repair, muffler and exhaust service and oil changes. They work on all makes and models, including diesel, and welcome commercial fleet accounts.

“Being able to accurately diagnose a problem is the key to precise and cost-effective work, especially with today’s vehicles," said Doug De Angelis.

The shop also welcomes antique autos. Their clientele includes car aficionados who bring in their display autos that other shops avoid.

“Our network allows us to find and sometimes fabricate parts to keep their show vehicles on the road and safe,” said Doug De Angelis. “Bottom line, we like challenges and specialize in fixing what other repair shops can’t or won't.”

Kathy Doug De Angelis, a retired nurse, manages the office and shares her husband’s love and diagnosis of cars. A U.S. Navy veteran, Doug De Angelis welcomes and provides discounts for military and first responders.
