Meet The Team

Silvano Sabucco

Silvano Sabucco

Founder, Sil's Auto Care Centre

Silvano, affectionately known as Sil, distinguished himself as the founder, esteemed leader, and owner of our enterprise from September 1976 to 2009. His visionary journey commenced at a modest two-bay BP gas station located in Clarkson, Ontario. Sil’s unwavering commitment to the business, coupled with his role as a former mentor to past great technicians, has significantly contributed to the enduring legacy of our organization.

Since his well-deserved retirement, Silvano now relishes the pleasures of life, including leisurely rides on his John Deere lawn mower, tending to his bountiful vegetable garden, meticulously restoring his cherished 1962 Ford Thunderbird, and providing a supportive ear as a trusted confidant to Carlo when discussions regarding the company arise. Sil’s continued involvement in the business as an experienced guide further underscores his profound dedication to the cultivation of an exemplary customer experience.

Carlo Sabucco

Carlo Sabucco

President, Sil's Auto Care Centre

“Warren Buffett once wisely stated, ‘It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it.’ Bearing this wisdom in mind, our commitment as a team leader in the auto repair industry is to consistently enhance the customer experience through unwavering dedication to quality workmanship and meticulous attention to detail. By providing nothing short of exceptional service, we not only safeguard our hard-earned reputation but also perpetually fortify it.

My journey within the family business commenced in the early 1980s, where I immersed myself in the responsibilities of the enterprise. Starting with humble tasks like fueling vehicles for the Clarkson locals, I progressively ventured into more complex roles, assisting with tire repairs, supporting auto mechanics, and ensuring the overall tidiness of the establishment.

Upon my graduation from St. Paul Secondary School, I pursued higher education at Ryerson University, where I honed my skills in Marketing and Management. Subsequently, in 1994, I made the full-time commitment to join the family business, thereby channeling my educational background and passion into our enterprise. In 2004, I proudly completed the Automotive Power Technician Program at Mohawk College, further bolstering my expertise in the automotive industry.

The mantle of ownership for Sil’s Complete Auto Centre was officially passed to me in 2009. As the steward of our legacy, I am excited about the promising future and continued success of our company. In 2013, we embarked on a significant journey by relocating to our current facility, a move that has unequivocally contributed to our thriving progress and ongoing prosperity.”

Jean Eckhart Apr 4, 2024

Another great experience at Sil’s. The experienced team provided a detailed estimate including photos, a loaner car and necessary, quality work. They changed my tires, replaced brakes, treated or replaced several fluids and got my car ready for spring travel. Thanks Sil’s for keeping my car safe and reliable!

Have gone multiple times. Last time I went they noticed I had tires in my trunk but realized I didnt book a tire swap. They called me to clarify if that was something I wanted. SInce it was the main reason I went I was very happy they called.

Raymond Trimm Mar 3, 2024

It was a great experience at Sil's Auto Centre. I would recommend it to my friends. Let me summarize my experience in sequence: excellent advisor, drop-off to home, quick service, excellent bill explanation, electronic bill and work update, and finally, pick up from home to take the vehicle after service is done. Please keep up the excellent work.

Arun Vaidhy Mar 3, 2024

I absolutely LOVE Sil's Auto. Carlo, Susan, Tommy and their great team of mechanics take the cake for me. Their work is a 10/10 and the trust factor is reinforced over time. I would recommend anyone to Sil's without hesitation.

Melinda Prain Mar 3, 2024

The team at Sil's has kept my vehicles running smoothly for many years. Highly recommended!

Charles Muller Mar 3, 2024

I took my car to Sil's for a safety check before buying it out from the dealer. Carlo was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything to me, it showed that he actually cared and wanted to gain my trust - which I really appreciated as I know nothing about what goes on inside my vehicle. No more taking my care to the dealership for servicing, I'll be going to Sil's! Thanks you guys for the really great experience
