The newly revamped Auto Technologies is a fully equipped auto repair service that is family-focused, technologically advanced, and competitively priced. More than that, the new owners have placed the highest value on their customers and their customers’ satisfaction. Being a busy family themselves, they can appreciate the importance that you and your family place in your cars. If you’re looking for a place you can trust to take care of your car, give you honest and experienced service, and treat you like one of the family, look no further than Auto Technologies.

Located in The River Crossing Shopping Center, near Publix, Auto Technologies is owned by Carmen and Shelly Discepola. The Discepolas have transformed Auto Technologies from top to bottom into the kind of place where customers feel comfortable, from the beautiful waiting room that features a big-screen TV, a coffee bar and comfortable seating, to Wi-Fi capabilities and lollypops for the little ones. They know what life is like for busy families, and their customers know they are in good, experienced hands.

It’s not just the waiting room that’s been transformed, for they have added the capability to service more vehicles, acquired a 4-wheel alignment system, and added a third diagnostic system to the ranks. Combine that with their experienced and friendly Auto Technologies Gets Your Family Back on the Road Fast! staff, and you’ve got an auto repair shop that shines.

Customer Katie Hahnel says, “Great people, always nice and friendly!”

Experience That Counts

The Discepola family has owned Auto Technologies since March of 2013, and together with their qualified staff, they bring well over 30 years of automotive experience to the table. When you combine that with their family-friendly, straightforward approach to car care, Auto Technologies is an excellent choice.

Many customers remember Carmen from when he worked at Ferman Chrysler Jeep and Dodge. Originally from New Jersey, Carmen has been working in the industry for almost twenty years, working in a variety of departments, from parts to service, and even managing large franchise tire and service centers. Together with his wife, Shelly, who has experience in the field as well, their goal was to create an exemplary auto shop that didn’t exactly “feel” like one.

Carmen says, “We’re different in that we offer a pure family experience.” To truly get the picture, please note that he says this with his 2-½- year-old daughter Isabell on his lap, happily typing away, while Carmen Jr. offers customers water and coffee. Auto Technologies is really that kind of place, and the customers will tell you that it’s both the friendly customer service and the superior service done to their cars that keeps them coming back.

Customer Rob Fulton said, “I have been there twice. Once for frozen driveshaft U-joints and…for a complete rear brake job and a transmission flush. Mike Nazzario (Service Manager) is very friendly and reasonable. It has been a long time since I have felt comfortable in taking my Jeep Wrangler or any vehicle somewhere. It is a great feeling that I can drive away and not have to worry about going back for incomplete work. I would definitely recommend them.”

Auto Technologies has five full-time employees, one of which is the aforementioned Mike Nazzario. Nazzario brings years of both technical and management experience to the table, as he owned his own shop in New Jersey for many years. Sean Grundset, the Lead Mechanic on staff, is known for basically being able to fix anything, and the rest of the staff all work hard to make sure that each job is done thoroughly, from your basic oil change to more complicated fixes. Fixing all makes and models, Auto Technologies is open six days a week to make it convenient for their customers to get back on the road when they need to be.

Carmen says, “We are very focused on the continued education that is necessary to stay competitive in our market.”

Rachel Clauson said, “Awesome, trustworthy service. Best mechanic I’ve found!”

One of an exclusive group of 13,000 auto repair locations nationwide, Auto Technologies is a NAPA AutoCare Center, which offers customers their Nationwide Peace of Mind Warranty, a written warranty that covers parts and labor for 24 months or 24,000 miles. A+ Certified with The Better Business Bureau, Auto Technologies honors competitors’ coupons and proudly offers a “Free Second Opinion” policy to people who are unsure about a quote given to them by another auto repair facility.

Carmen says, “We are very price competitive and we work with people as best as we can.” He explains that sometimes it’s the simple things that they can do to go the extra mile. Sometimes they have a customer who needs some extra help, so they will do what they can for them, whether that means taking them home, or delivering their car. It’s that kind of personal attention that sets them apart from the competition.

For those who need financing, Auto Technologies makes it easy by offering GE financing for either six or twelve months, so if you find that your car needs major repairs, you’re covered. Plus, GE Financing extends your warranty to 36 months or 36,000 miles, which is an added bonus.
