About Us

Malaquias "JR" Rael

Before NorthStar became the business it is today, a modern, full-service automotive repair center, it was a Texaco gas station, which Malaquias’s parents bought from friends.

There was a need in Questa for quality tire and auto repair, so the Raels focused on building a reliable, well-equipped auto repair shop, rather than offering fuel service. The decision paid off, for the Raels, and our customers who trust NorthStar Tire & Auto to provide fair and friendly car care, from oil changes to tires to complex automotive repairs.

Meet the Guys

Malaquias “JR” Rael has worked in the business since 1988, and took over NorthStar Tire & Auto about 12 years ago. As an auto repair shop owner, he loves helping people with their automotive issues. Reliable transportation is critical, so keeping cars on the road is a worthy and valuable service that Malaquias is proud to provide. Every day, he makes every effort to ensure our customers feel they are our priority.
