OUR SHOP

A Note from Ellen.

As President of Pasadena Car Care I would like to thank you for stopping by and visiting our website. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself Ellen, and my husband Rich and tell you what is important to us in our business.

Rich and I are originally from Bergen County New Jersey having moved here in 1994 with our two sons. Rich has always been an auto technician and currently is a master ASE Certified auto and truck technician. I was an office manager for a doctor's office and we were both very active with various organizations in our small town of Elmwood Park.

When we first moved to St. Petersburg, Rich worked at various locations but wasn't content. He saw a need to do what he had always done, but in a fair and honest fashion. We opened up Central Avenue Chevron on the corner of 49th Street and Central Avenue in 1996. In 2005 we also obtained Pasadena Texaco, our current location now known as Pasadena Car Care Center Inc. As both Chevron and Texaco repair facilities, we earned their "Gold-level" in customer service and satisfaction six times and we were awarded many great trips as being members of this Elite Club. In 2008, we left Central Avenue and moved our entire operation along with all our employees to our larger Pasadena facility.

Our goal is to provide you with an excellent experience each time you visit our shop. We promise to work hard to earn your trust and your business. If we don't meet your expectations, I would be grateful if you would take a few minutes out of your busy day to let us know where we have let you down. Our intention is to make your service experience as hassle-free as possible. We are happy to offer early bird/night-owl drop-box service as well as local, business-hour shuttle service to your home or office. At Pasadena Car Care Center, we know how busy you are and want to help keep your vehicle in top condition. We offer free service reminders -- when it is time for maintenance, we remember for you! We understand your need to stay in motion even when your car is not.

Sincerely, Ellen M. Gogolen / Pres. Pasadena Car Care Center Inc.
