Our Story

One of six family-owned dealerships that make up the Competition Auto Group, Mercedes-Benz of Huntington is founded on three generations of car business and customer service experience.

Our Long Island story began way back in 1962 with our founder, Joseph C. Buzzetta.

Known by his family and friends as Joe, our founder was a car nut, born and raised on Long Island. He worked in all aspects of the car business – starting as a kid washing and polishing cars and selling cars at one of the dealers in his hometown of Huntington at the age of eighteen.

After serving in the military abroad, Joe returned to New York and, for a period, worked in his family’s restaurant, the Bella Vista, then located in Centerport, New York. However, the automotive business was always his first love. So he found a way to gather the resources to open an auto service shop with his good friend, Oscar Rubio, on Smithtown Boulevard in Nesconset.

As the years went by, Joe was able to procure other franchises in addition to our Mercedes-Benz franchises. He moved his shop, now a dealership, up to Route 25.

Over the years, Joe’s progeny, Joe Jr., Jim, and Nancy have all joined him in the business and the family was able to add other brands to their family business. Deeply rooted in the Long Island community, the entire family resides locally and strongly believes in giving back and reinvesting in the community.

Some organizations close to their hearts are the St. Charles Hospital, Alternatives for ChildrenPaws of WarStony Brook Children’s HospitalLI 2 Day Breast Cancer WalkWard Melville Heritage OrganizationCelebrate St. JamesSmithtown Children’s Foundation, and many others.

The Buzzetta Family takes great pride in their community and love building relationships with their fellow neighbors. At Mercedes-Benz of Huntington, we can guarantee you’ll always be treated like family when you visit a Competition dealership.

We believe in developing long-lasting relationships, and that is the kind of relationships our business’s foundation is built upon. We look forward to meeting you at our service center soon.
