Meet Michael

    Welcome to the Michael’s Automotive Website! I have worked in the automotive repair industry for the past 29 years. When I started my own business in 1991, I felt strongly that I wanted to take the worry out of auto repair by providing my customers with honest, high quality service at competitive prices.

     To provide the best service, my staff is trained in and committed to using the latest in automotive technology to service your vehicle. We feel that through our expert, comprehensive diagnostic services and direct, personal communication, you will be able to make sound, informed decisions to keep your vehicle in safe, good working order.

     If our approach to business sounds straight forward….that’s because it is. Taking your vehicle in for repair should be a positive, uncomplicated experience.

    Through regular maintenance you will save dollars in the long run. We are dedicated to make sure you are 100 percent satisfied and offer a one-year warranty on all service.

Our History

     For the past 18 years, Michael’s Automotive has been providing high quality service at competitive prices to the greater Rochester Area community. Michael opened his shop at 70 Frankfort Street in downtown Rochester (next to Kodak headquarters) with one auto service bay in March of 1991. Since that time, the business has expanded to include four employees and 11 auto service bays. In 2005, Michael expanded his existing location and opened a new shop front that faces State Street in Rochester. The new space includes additional service bays, an improved customer waiting area, easier building access and parking facilities. At Michael’s a wide range of services are offered to customers including New York State Inspections, alignments, computer diagnostics, and a new, professional doll-up service to name a few.

    Everyone at Michael’s is committed to provide customers with high quality services. Also, committed to a clean environment, Michaels Automotive staff collects and recycles all waste fluids. All fluids used at the shop are environmentally friendly. Each year, Michael holds a customer appreciation party to thank his loyal customers. It’s a great time to catch up on all the latest services Michael’s Automotive Tech Center has to offer to service your vehicle.
