About Us

Owner Mike Mannisi circa 2001
Cardinal Automotive & Tire's mission is to provide each customer with excellent service at a fair price and to go the extra mile to ensure complete customer satisfaction.
By staying true to that mission on a daily basis, Cardinal Automotive & Tire has earned the reputation as an honest and dependable car care facility over the past 16 years, as shown by their many loyal customers returning again & again.
Cardinal Automotive & Tire is a family-owned business which is proudly owned and operated by Mike Mannisi.
Mike began his automotive career in 1979 and has worked as an auto technician for over 30 years. Along the way, Mike has earned multiple ASE certifications from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.
In 2001, Mike started Cardinal Automotive & Tire at a Sinclair service station on the corner of West Florissant and Hudson in Ferguson, Missouri.
During the 10 years of operation in Ferguson, Cardinal Automotive & Tire grew to earn a reputation as an honest and dependable car care facility. That reputation has resulted in many loyal, repeat customers as well as new customers through word-of-mouth referrals.
In 2010, Cardinal Automotive & Tire lost the lease at the original Ferguson location and moved to a new location in St. Peters, Missouri. Our new shop is just west of Mid Rivers Mall and is located on the I-70 south service road (Veterans Memorial Parkway).  Our building can be easily seen from Interstate 70.
On the personal side, Mike was born and raised in North County.  He attended Corpus Christi grade school and is a graduate of Jennings High School. Mike is married and has two children.
As you may have guessed from our name, Mike has been a huge St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan since childhood. The photo at the right is from a 2001 magazine article about local companies that have the word Cardinal in their business name.
