Buick Service in Traverse City
When it comes to GM service and repair, few shops in the nation let alone in Traverse City, offer the quality, experience and depth of service that we do.In 1992 AC Delco chose Marathon Automotive as the first shop in the area to represent them as GM Service Specialist. Marathon Auto has the distinction of being of being one of the few independent auto repair shops that have full diagnostic and computer reprogramming for all GM vehicles.
Our GM technician, Dave Persons has chosen to specialize in GM since 1981. With close to 30 years of experience he knows GM vehicles inside and out. In 2002 Dave achieved national recognition, by winning AC Delco Technician of the Millennium contest for the Midwest region and qualifying for the national competition where he placed 6th in the USA. Bob Gutowski, the head instructor for AC Delco said “Dave is one of the best all around technicians I have ever seen.”
We also have the distinction of being the only ASE Blue Seal Shop in Traverse City, and the only AAA Approved Repair shop in Traverse City. Just like your parents told you, you are known by the company you keep.
There is a good reason that Marathon Automotive was named one of the top 10 shops in the U.S.A. by Motor Age Magazine: Press release here
