About

Overbeck Auto has always been on the cutting edge of automotive technology. From being an early specialist in fuel injected engines, to owning and specializing in the care of hybrids, Cincinnati Hybrid, a division of Overbeck Auto is the place to have your hybrid vehicle serviced. Of course any shop can work on a hybrid, but at Cincinnati Hybrid, the technicians are trained to understand the complexities and differences in a hybrid; even more so than some dealerships. As AC/DC Qualified Master Hybrid Technicians, Matt and David are the area’s leading experts on hybrid vehicles, serving on the ASA Ohio board, as well as “subject matter expert” participants in NATEF review groups.

The difference at Cincinnati Hybrid can be found in this expertise. You won’t be told that a $3,000 battery needs to be replaced if the problem is a $250 fix. And Cincinnati Hybrid takes care to repair and replace items with rebuilt parts, where possible, which often times come with longer warranties than dealer replacements. In addition, you can rest assured that your unique vehicle is understood at Cincinnati Hybrid, from the sensitive transmission in a Honda to the electric drive motor on the Toyota. Cincinnati hybrid drivers will receive all the maintenance that their car needs to reach 250,000 miles or more on their investment.

With almost every major auto maker producing their own brand of hybrid, drivers are looking more and more into making the hybrid purchase. Let Cincinnati Hybrid take some of the uncertainty out of that purchase when you bring your hybrid in for routine care as well as any unique problems that may arise. The specialized care your hybrid will receive at Cincinnati Hybrid will help ensure a long life for your vehicle.

Our History

Overbeck Auto Services started with a dream and a plan. Steve Overbeck returned from the Navy and Vietnam in 1971, ready to start his own auto repair business with a better idea. Experienced as an auto dealership line mechanic, Steve knew he had to find a way to provide better, more personalized service. And he did. With his wife, Ann, as his partner, their first shop was in Oakley. In 1990 they moved to Madisonville where Overbeck Auto Services is now in its 43rd year of business. Since the beginning Steve emphasized continual training to keep up with new technology so we can continue to exceed our customers’ expectations.

Matt Overbeck, Steve and Ann’s son, is now at the helm. He grew up under Steve’s wing learning the automotive repair trade from the best. Starting with cleaning parts and sweeping floors as a child, to rebuilding a Pontiac Catalina as a teenager, and earning a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Cincinnati, Matt is fully committed to seeing his Dad’s dream grow, thrive, and prosper.

This past November 2018 found Overbeck’s taking over Ray and Ron’s Auto Service in Amelia OH from Ray Jessee, Steve’s personal friend and colleague. Both men’s businesses started in the 70’s when engines still used carburetors and emission controls were a new technology. Both men aspired to the highest degree of personal, thoughtful, friendly service with the highest degree of professionalism. It must have worked because here we are over 40 years later providing their brand of automotive services at both facilities.
