About Monicatti Auto Sales
The Monicatti name has been associated with the automotive industry for nearly a century, approaching nearly 100 years within the Metro Detroit area. Starting with a small dealer located in Detroit back in the 1930’s where the Monicatti name started, leading into their second location where they mostly fixed small engines, snowmobiles and boat motors. From there, Monicatti began selling the Chrysler brand, previously located on Auburn Rd. (at the corner of Ryan Rd) in Shelby Township. Eventually, the Monicatti name blossomed into a flagship Chrysler/Jeep store located in Sterling Heights on Van Dyke, opening its doors back in 1978. The 30,000 square foot location was considered state-of-the-art at the time. However, in 2009, we were forced to close our doors along with 1800 more Chrysler/Jeep franchises.
These businesses were taken, or more accurately, stolen from good hard-working American business owners because of the economic crash. Our government got involved when they shouldn’t have and spelled disaster for the auto industry. Many recognizable dealer names that stood in the community for generations fell and are now just a distant memory.
The Monicatti name was revived in 2018 with a brand-new location in beautiful Chesterfield, MI – easily accessible right off of I-94. Currently being operated by Mr. Michael Monicatti, the 4th generation of Monicatti men, and with his son Jake Monicatti in the fold, this time around it's all about focusing on a smaller and simpler approach – saving money and passing it along to the consumers!
We have cherished our customers and community for nearly a century, and greatly appreciate all of their kind comments, input, and support. Multiple generations of families have been consistently returning to Monicatti for their auto needs because they know it’s a name they can trust. It truly humbles all of us in the Monicatti family to know what our name has meant to the community and the Metro Detroit area for so many years.
