About Us

We opened AutoStrada at 347 Wharncliffe Road, South, in London in 1968, when Frank Malacaria started a full-service automotive repair facility, used car lot and Sunoco Gas Station. By the late 1970's we operated several other gas stations, used car lots and FIAT, Alfa Romeo and Lancia new car franchises. In the 1980's, when his children Cinzia and Andy came on board, we at AutoStrada gradually re-focused back onto our core location and business. Now doing what we do best, providing outstanding value, excellence and quality of service for our very large and loyal customer base.

Some of our customers have been with us since 1968! In the mid 1990's we helped launch the national auto glass network Uni-Glass Auto Glass, and converted our existing Shadow Auto Glass business into a Uni-Glass glass shop. Recently we added another division, Ziebart Auto Accessories and Protections to our group of services. Futhermore, we expanded our Used Vehicle operations into a brand new building at the same location.

For years we have been proud members of the BBB (Better Business Bureau), UCDA (Used Car Dealer Association), AARO (Automotive Aftermarket Repair Organization) and CFIB (Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses).

We are asked to appear on London's A Channel several times per year to do automotive repair and service information talks. And we have been nominated for the BBB's Business Ethics of the Year Award and the Chamber of Commerce's Business of the Year.

We support many good causes in and around London such as youth soccer, hockey, the United Way, The Children's Hospital, attendance at the Karate World's Championship and Community Living.
