Our Team in Carson City, NV



After attending UC Davis, Marcus worked for a top-rated independent repair shop in Napa, California, for 7 years, working his way up from shop assistant to service manager and learning the service side of the auto repair business. He left the automotive field and ran a successful mortgage business in California and Nevada for many years, thinking his auto repair days were behind him. However, after moving to Carson City with his wife and two kids in 2006, he was unable to find a dealership or independent shop that lived up to his expectations. In December of 2008, he heard that Capitol Automotive was for sale. On a whim, he looked at the shop, and it was purchased and running under his leadership within 30 days. In his spare time, Marcus enjoys cycling, anything involving the Sierra Nevada, and shuttling teenagers to various sport and school activities.

Tony brought 35 years of experience to Capitol Automotive when he joined the team in 2011. For over 20 of those years he has been an ASE Master Technician.

Like several others at Capitol Automotive, Tony has a love of cycling. He likes to start his workday with a cup of coffee, a dog walk, a kiss to his wife, and a bike ride to work.

Kyle McMullen

Service Advisor

Kyle McMullen is an experienced Service advisor specializing in fleet maintenance and team leadership. Beginning in August of 2008, Kyle began working at an independent shop in Sparks, NV, sweeping floors and cleaning vehicles. He has since worked his way up into multiple leadership and sales positions ranging from the all new Tesla Gigafactory to his local Mercedes-Benz dealership. Kyle thoroughly enjoys working with satisfied customers and problem solving.

After graduating from a college credential-based high school in 2010, he began working to acquire his Associates Degree in Automotive Technology whilst simultaneously working full time as an apprentice technician in Reno, NV. After working his way into the shop manager position, he came to realize that customer service was his specialty and has not deviated ever since. Beginning in July of 2018, he was personally sought out to join the high end repair industry at Mercedes-Benz. While the luxury side of things was a nice change of pace, he realized that his passion could always be found working in smaller, family oriented repair facilities.

Kyle is very knowledgeable in regards to nearly every make of vehicle. Having over ten years of experience in the industry, he has endured countless hours of training as well as hands on learning and focuses daily on three main objectives – honesty, dignity and mindfulness. As his father always said, there’s no right way to do the wrong thing.

He is looking forward to serving the Carson City community for years to come and hopes that he will be given the opportunity to provide a pleasurable and painless experience when placing the livelihood of your vehicle within his hands. Kyle McMullen currently resides in Sparks, Nevada where he was born and raised.

A Few Words from Our Customers

Amazing service!

I brought my van in on a Friday Morning. They had it diagnosed and estimated on the same day. I kept my car for the weekend and brought it back early Monday morning. They had everything fixed and even did a courtesy inspection to make sure there wasn't anything else I urgently needed done. They took me to work and even picked me up to get my van each time. Great service, friendly staff, and they didn't give you the run around! I'll be coming back for future services and even oil changes. Thank you Marcus and to your whole team!!

Jennifer Moushey

These guys are truly all that they say they are.

I am always skeptical with new service, but these guys are exceptional in a wonderful way. Your car will be in great hands and they stand behind their work. They are not just professional, they are also kind, honest and fun personable folks. Any customer will be truly lucky/blessed to have found Capitol Automotive to service their vehicle.

Great job Capitol Automotive... you earned a new customer.

I'd recently taken my Honda to a dealership to have airbag recall work done, and they offered to do a vehicle inspection at the same time. Their inspection revealed that my brakes needed to be repaired right away, and they pressured me to schedule the work with them at that time. Instead, I decided to try Capitol, and a similar inspection showed the brakes were not in the "dire condition" claimed by the dealership. I appreciate the care and concern shown by the folks at Capitol...without the pressure of the dealership. Great work at a good price!
