Celebrating 90 Years in Syracuse, N.Y.


Putting Our Customers First Since 1930

Our family has lived and worked in the Syracuse community for 90 years. We’ve serviced multiple generations and watched families grow up. We’ve lived through 90 Syracuse winters and understand firsthand the toll that snow and salt and slippery travel can take on our vehicles. We’ve watched cars get more sophisticated and seen trends come and go, but one thing has never wavered: the draw of a friendly face and reliable, personalized service. Our grandfather started the business as an immigrant, with little money, a year after the stock market crash. Our family business has survived World War II – the Korean War – Vietnam War – Oil crisis of the 1970’s – The Gulf War – 9/11 and our troops overseas since then – and the 2008-2009 Recession. We’re proud to be here 90 years later.

We are Rudy Schmid. Let our family take care of your family.

    I just wanted to leave a review for Rudy Schmids Total Car Care as they we so excellent from start to finish. Brought my vehicle in to get the bumper replaced from an accident. They made the entire process so easy for me and handled everything … More from my rental car, to dealing with the Insurance adjuster and all the financial end of it. While there I thought I needed new brakes and rotors, and asked them to replace them while my car was there, but after they test drove it and inspected them, they told me I had a lot of life left to them and that I really did not need them at this time! Instead of just replacing them because I thought I needed them. Totally honest company...When I got my car back they had completely vacuumed and cleaned the inside and the outside! It looked awesome! I would never bring my car anywhere else...they do it all! Thank you so much Rudy Schmids!!
