Steven Bernick is a Service Advisor for our Fifth Gear Automotive shop in Argyle, Texas.

Steven, an avid football (soccer) fan, received his Bachelors of Science in Manufacturing Engineering with a double minor in Mathematics and Philosophy from Texas State University.

Steven has exceptional knowledge and experience in the field and is definitely one of our key service advisors here at 5th Gear Automotive.

We wanted to take a moment to get to know Steven a little better. We asked him a few questions to gain a better understanding of who is the man in Argyle making the magic happen.

If you can only pick one colleague to take on a trip with to Cancun, who would you take and why?  

Nate (tech in our Lewisville shop), he’s my brother so there is really no other choice.

If you could make anything with your 3D printer, what would it be?

A life-size model of Sean, the marketing manager. The guy is worth knowing. 

What is your spirit animal and why? 

Turtle – slow and steady wins the race. But the albino squirrel is cool too.

Who or where would you haunt if you were a ghost? 

New Orleans, I hear they have great opportunities there for ghosts.

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be? 

Broccoli. I’ve been known to live on the edge.

What is your favorite type of music? 

Americana….but if you hear me humming along to the soundtrack of Disney’s Frozen, mind your business.

Cats or dogs? 

Woof. I take Halle Berry everywhere.


What makes you feel old? 

Quoting 90s movies and some people (Nick Kidder) don’t laugh because they have never watched them.

Favorite sport or team?


How do you feel knowing Arsenal will never win another league title?

We’ll see who is laughing when we win the Championship league title next year if we get relegated

Favorite vacation spot?

Greece, although I once took a trip to Vegas with my friends, Stu, Phil, and Doug. We went for Doug’s bachelor party. I don’t remember much, but my buddy Leslie Chow still texts me daily.  

What is the weirdest tradition your family has?

We have egg cracking competitions on the morning of Orthodox Easter. First, we dye the eggs red. Then, everyone chooses an egg and battle by bumping the eggs against each other; the uncracked egg wins.

Cannon ball or jack knife? 

Flying squirrel maneuver into a back flop. Totally normal.

Weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? 

Grasshopper Margarita.

If everything in your house had to be one color what color would you choose? 

Green, because people who love green are often affectionate, loyal and frank. I like to believe these characteristics describe my inner light.

BBQ or Mexican Food?

Mexican, because reminds me of the time I was in the Merchant Marines and was stuck off the coast of Mexico in the Pacific Ocean for a year. Great story.

How many burgers are too many? 

If you add bacon to them, I have been known to eat 3. One time, great story…’ll love this one….I ate 4.

If you could talk to any animal which one would it be?

Octopus, seems like they could hold their own in a deep conversation…


What period would you go back in time to visit?

Atlantis. Really would have loved to meet Aquaman.

Would you rather have to give up permanently salts or sweets?

I’d give up sweets. I don’t think I could go a day without my mixed nuts.

Rollercoasters yes or no? 

Yes, I once spent the summer traveling the country visiting every rollercoaster in the Continental United States.

Do you collect anything? 

Stance Socks. I believe socks tell a lot about a person. It’s important to know what kind of socks a person wears to truly know and understand them.



What was your first job?

After my year training in Northern China to become a Northern Shaolin Kung Fu grandmaster, I took a job here at Fifth Gear Auto.

Favorite dessert? 

Homemade Baklava, because it reminds me of the time I spent Spring Break in Saudi Arabia before making my way over to Azerbaijani.

Who is the smartest person you know, besides Sean the marketing manager?

Sean the Marketing Manager, I feel lucky just to know him.

Favorite holiday?

Easter. I dress up as a bunny rabbit each Easter.


Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Yelling for my kids to score a goal at their soccer games


If there was a nuclear fallout, who at 5th Gear would you team up with for survival and where would you go to escape. 😉

Ty, one of our technicians here in Argyle. We will post up in his dad’s monster truck.
