SCOTT’S AUTO REPAIR, THE DEALERSHIP ALTERNATIVE Try to imagine the Tamiami Trail with only two lanes, many World War II barracks and an army post on the east side of the street where SRQ now has a presence - that is what Jack Scott saw when he moved from Ohio to Manatee Country 56 years ago to start his gas station and full service repair on the corner of the Trail and Scott Avenue. Today, Jeff Scott, his son, still runs the family-owned business. The gas pumps are gone, but the full service repair continues, now with ASE Automotive Excellence accreditation, which assures customers of qualified technicians and up-to-date computer diagnostics. Informed customers and word-of-mouth referrals contribute to the success of the business. Bob Carlo, in charge of service and repairs, has ASE certifications in all of the techniques that keep cars running well, and vets his technicians to be sure they live up to the stations credo: great service at a fair price. Jeff has a second business at the same location: Jack Auto Sales which has the same credo and many repeat customers who turn to him when they need another car. Every oil change includes, at no extra cost, a safety inspection and tire rotation - which is why, customers are to schedule an appointment. Bob, also known as Dr. Bob for his diagnostic expertise, imbues his trained technicians with the words he and Jeff live by. An honest work ethic, transparent business dealings, and cleanliness and orderliness of the premises. With the sale of the Dr. Bob at Scott's Auto Repair Property on the North Trail in late December, Bob Carlo (known to many as Dr Bob) has relocated the business to 6691 33rd St. E. Sarasota. Dr Bob an ASE Master Automotive Technician was a fixture at Dr. Bob at Scott's Auto Repair for decades as their branding transitioned from Gulf, Mobil, BP, Marathon and finally Dr. Bob at Scott's Auto Repair. Dr Bob looks forward to carrying on Scott's Legacy that he helped to build and proud to be part of for 40 years. Technicians James Florczak and Jeff Williams (both formally of Dr. Bob at Scott's Auto Repair) are joining Dr Bob at Dr. Bob at Scott's Auto Repair which is a short drive from their previous location.
