Michael Bernal began as a manager and technician for a franchise 11 years ago. After 3 years another shop owner opened a location and Michael was also managing and performing technical duties there as well. Never leaving behind the first owner or his clients, he consulted and assisted managing the first location on a daily basis.
At his second facility he acquired the entire city of Duluth police department vehicle maintenance and repair business. Providing them with a much quicker turn around on their vehicles then they were receiving from the dealerships. He also made it more affordable, but never sacrificing quality especially since these vehicles were constantly operating and at times under extreme stress. By being able to save the city money in this sector, they were able to purchase better and more technological advanced equipment.
Throughout these 11 years he also earned 12 awards for outstanding customer service satisfaction, installer achievement award from a manufacturer and a distinguished hero award for assisting a family of a service member in need during the middle east conflict.
Now Michael has been able to purchase his own facility from the franchise owner in which he first represented for 11 years and created…Global Auto Solutions.
As a shop owner I am committed to educating my clients to recognize symptoms and signs of component deterioration so together we can prevent major repairs which if not serviced in time can become expensive and hazardous. Vehicles will always require service and at times repairs, but many times the most costly repairs can be prevented. With the extensive knowledge that I have obtained through experience by servicing a wide variety of different automotive manufacturers such as Porsche, lotus, corvette, dodge (hemi), BMW (m3 and m5), Mercedes Benz (AMG)/ (Bluetec), Volkswagen/ (TDI), Ford (Saleen/Cobra/SVF), Nissan, Audi(s) , GMC, Honda/Acura (type S), Toyota/Lexus, Daewoo, Kia, Mazda (speed), and many more.
I have my ASE certification in CNG (natural gas systems) and my shop can now convert Gasoline and Diesel engines to Bi-fuel and CNG dedicated systems. Also I recently began to further my education and enroll in hybrid and electric vehicle technology so we can provide service to the future of the automobile industry.
