Bittersweet Automotive started in 1996 as Bittersweet Marathon Service Station in Mishawaka. In 1999, we moved to our larger location in Granger. Bittersweet Automotive is locally owned by Gary Belardinella, his wife Deborah and three children. Gary started in the automotive field in 1988 working as a full time technician. Three years later, after becomming the Manager, Gary set his goal to own an auto repair facility. In 2002, Bittersweet Automotive joined forces with NAPA Autocare Center in order to provide the Power of a National Company with the Service of a Locally Owned Repair Center. This provides our customers with 24 Month/ 24,000 Mile Nationwide Warranty program, the quality of Napa Auto Parts and Special programs offered throughout the year.
