"Lisa Danto"I feel as though Marathon Automotive is the best place to take your vehicle. From the moment you walk in, everyone is friendly, professional, and great to deal with. Did these guys get trained by the Ritz Carlton? Their prices are in line with others, and yet they give you so much more value..."Sebastian Garbsch"We always know at Marathon things will be done right and if something should be done it is so. And if something doesn't need to be done Marathon will say so. "Harry Janis"Everyone is always so helpful at Marathon Automotive.

I have used Marathon for ten years for all of my auto repair service..."Sara Cockrell"I have been working with the staff at Marathon for over 15 years. On occasion I have tried other companies for car service, but always return to Marathon because of the courtesy of the staff as well as their knowledge of vehicles...

If I had to sum up my relationship with them I would say, 'I can trust them.'

"Ed and Carole Trahan"Knowing that everyone at Marathon is taking care of both of our vehicles... gives peace of mind that will always make it home safely on the snowiest of nights and the hottest of summer days... We love Marathon..."Leslie and Russ Knopp"I highly recommend Marathon Automotive for the following reasons: Friendly and courteous service. Scheduled repairs completed on time. Quality results. Fair and competitive pricing. Dependable shuttle..."Ted Fistler"I am a long-time customer because of friendliness, trust and good work."Dan Tholen"Done correctly. Done economically. Done on time."Dave Warren"My husband is a do-it-yourselfer who trusts nothing to anyone. This is the ONLY place he will "let me" take my Subaru for the few things he doesn't have time for. (And he checks things over when I get home ... )"Patty Marden"...I felt my car was treated with respect long since forgotten by my dealer. BTW the coffee is great while I wait and I like to walk to the surrounding shops and restaurants while I wait on bigger jobs. Keep it up Marathon! A+++++"James D."...I found everyone that I dealt with at Marathon to be honest, educated, and communicated well both over the phone and in person. I'm thankful that they didn't try to take advantage of me being out of state and during a time of need..."Jerel D. "The staff at Marathon Automotive have the 'attention to detail' that allows my family to travel with the confidence that they will arrive at their destination."Bill White"I can always count on Marathon Automotive to deliver thoughtful, quality service and a good price. I have been going there for decades and they are great to work with."James D. and Christina MacInnes"My wife and I both use Marathon. We have always been impressed with the sincerity of the staff, quality of service and feeling part of the Marathon family. Marathon sees the value of us... and we see the value of their service."Chip Petty"Always friendly and courteous, take the time to explain needed service and offer options, and most importantly, they stand behind their work. Not the least expensive in town, but worth every penny for the quality work. Tire pricing is competitive, and the honest tire advice is priceless."Timothy Burke"We are so glad we found Marathon Automotive! From tires to service and repairs, they have always been professional, honest and knowledgeable. We wouldn't take our Honda's anywhere else."Beth M."I have been using Marathon Automotive for all my car (Subaru) servicing needs for the past 25 years. I always find the staff to be very accommodating when scheduling appointments, especially in emergencies..."Pat Buron"Absolutely spectacular service! I am impressed every visit with the team's ability to not only recognize you, but remember things that were going on the last time you were in."Whitney Fisher Miller

TOP  REASONS

____________________________________________

 

#8 Environmentally Friendly
We have been recycling since 1992, long before it was fashionable. We use our waste oil to heat the shop, and used oil filters are crushed and recycled by a licensed environmental firm. Our cardboard is recycled and our building was designed to make the best use of natural light and to be very energy efficient. Being conservative with our resources has always made sense to us.

#7 Locally-Owned Business 
What does being a locally owned business mean?  Quite simply, it means we answer to you. We answer to our friends, family and customers, not to corporate bean counters who only look out for their stockholders.

#6  Top-Notch Technicians 
We hire Michigan’s best technicians and pursue the most innovative training and education so we stay the best. Our award winning techs are ASE Master Certified, but more importantly we take pride in our work!

#5  We Guarantee Our Work 
Relax …we have you covered. Marathon Automotive’s “best in the business” nationwide warranty covers parts and labor for 18 months/18,000 miles!  If you’re not happy, we're not happy.

#4  State-of-the-Art Service Facility
Our facility is rivaled by very few shops in the U.S.A.  We are committed to using the most advanced diagnostic tools and equipment in a clean and modern work environment.

#3  Fast Service 
One day service is standard on most scheduled repairs.  For emergency work we will do our best to get you back on the road the same day.

#2  Complete Service 
No need to chase all over town for different types of service. Oil changes, brakes, and tires… that’s easy. Complicated electronics and computer reprogramming... no problem. We can fix a broken cup holder or a broken transmission.  For brakes and tires we can compete with the chain stores on price and new car dealerships on quality.  We will save you time, money, and make life easier and stress free!

#1  We Specialize in Your Vehicle 
With 13 exceptional employees, we have a technician who specializes in your make of vehicle.
