Meet The Team - Sonny's Automotive

Meet The Team | A Family Tradition

Sonny’s Automotive opened its doors and served our first customer in 1957. Managed by Mike and Wayne Matchell, thousands of satisfied customers have experienced Sonny’s difference.    Meet the team!

From The Family

Over the years, we have maintained a simple philosophy: your satisfaction is guaranteed.  We think of our customers as our friends.  We get the job done right.  And stand behind our work.  Put your trust in us.  We are confident we will satisfy your needs. 

Mike Matchell | Owner

Welcome to Sonny’s.  

I’m Mike, and I’ve owned Sonny’s for 30 years and have repaired cars for over 35 years.  I guess I would say that it’s my passion and my life. I teach my team to work hard to earn your business.  Simply put, I want you to be happy when you leave and not choose another repair facility over us.

We know car repairs can be expensive.  So, it’s my mission to do our best.  It seems to work and I am blessed and grateful for our repeat customers and positive Google reviews.  I try my best to meet every customer that visits our shop.  A handshake and a firm look in the eye tells me how we are doing.  You won’t find me hiding away in an office.  In other words, if you’re happy, I want to know.  If we can make it better, I want to know that too.

A little bit about me.  I’m a father of four and live in Labadie, MO.  We are into sports.   We are involved in our parish and our community.  And, we enjoy living out in the country.

You can reach me at 636-458-2028 or sonnysautomotive1@gmail.com.

Wayne Matchell | Senior Manager

Welcome to Sonny’s.  I’m Mike’s dad, the bald guy with the beard, and the head chief who answers the phone and settles the bill with you. 

I’ll be straight up on how much you’ll invest to repair your vehicle.  I’ve been working on cars for over 50 years.  So, I’m qualified.  I know that being without your car or truck is a hassle.  So, it’s my job to help get you in and out of the shop as fast as possible.

At Sonny’s, you won’t find massage chairs, Brazilian leather sofas, an Expresso machine, or a 70-inch plasma TV.  We do have calendars.  But, we like it like that.  What you will find are experienced mechanics and an honest discussion about what it is going to take to repair your vehicle properly.  

A little bit about me.  I’m a father of six and I live in Labadie, MO – as luck would have it, right across from my son Mike.  As I’m involved in our community and live right next to the church and cemetery.  So, it won’t be a long drive to send me off to the promised land when the time comes.  

Call me at 636-458-2028 during office hours.  You can email me at sonnysautomotive1@gmail.com.  Yep, for an old bald guy, I know what e-mail is.

Jennifer Matchell | Business Operations Manager

Welcome to Sonny’s.  I’m Jennifer!

I handle the accounting to keep Sonny’s in working order. I’m proud of what we have built and the loyal customers we have.  It’s great to see people realize we are a good alternative to big dealership service repair facilities. 

So, at Sonny’s the approach is a bit old-fashioned and simple.  That says a lot about Mike, Wayne, our technicians and repair specialists, and our ongoing goal to repair your vehicle right the first time. 

I hope that you have an enjoyable experience with Sonny’s and I, along with Mike and Wayne, appreciate your business!
