Mighty Discount Automotive

Mighty Discount Automotive has been part of 

Long Island’s Centereach

 community for over 36 years! We started as Mighty Discount Muffler by master automotive technician Ron Colantonio in 1984 with hope and faith in his love for cars. Since 1984,  Mighty Discount Automotive has outperformed numerous tides of “big chain automotive shops” cropping up on Middle Country Road with a rock-solid mantra, “Treat every customer’s car like your own.”

Ron’s sons Frank and Ron Jr. have grown up around the shop to become the master mechanics that they are today. They have achieved numerous certifications that are proudly displayed on the wall at Mighty Discount Automotive.

The friendly & knowledgeable people that help make us the best!

Ron Colantonio

Ron Colantonio has been a master mechanic since 1963. With faith and love for cars, he opened Mighty Discount Automotive’s doors in 1984. Since opening Mighty’s garage doors, he has helped thousands of happy customers. He treats every customer like family and helps them the same with whatever questions that they might have about their service using easy to understand terms. Since 1984 he made sure that Mighty Discount Automotive holds steadfast in their mission statement of “treating every customer’s car like your own.” Ron breaks all the molds of the auto shop cliche; never scaring or pushing the customer for repairs they do not need.

Most of Frank’s life has been spend around cars. Frank joined the Mighty Team after working as a union welder. Frank has close to 15 years experience in designing and installing custom exhaust. His custom exhaust systems far exceeds any exhaust system kit that is available. He is also our main guy when it comes to the heavy work such as engine, transmission, and differential swaps.
