Subaru Service in Traverse City
Few vehicles represent Northern Michigan’s outdoor lifestyle better than Subaru. Ross, the owner of Marathon Automotive, started specializing in Subaru Service in 1973 when he owned an automotive shop in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Since 1980, Marathon Automotive has specialized in servicing and repairing Subarus in Michigan. Only a few shops in the nation share our level of experience servicing Subarus. In fact, we are the only independent shop in Michigan to own the Subaru factory scan tool, necessary for properly diagnosing problems. Because we service so many Subarus, we can quickly diagnose even the most complicated problems quickly and efficiently – saving you money.
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
We also have the distinction of being the only ASE Blue Seal Shop in Traverse City, and the only full service AAA Approved Repair shop in Traverse City. Just like your parents told you, you are known by the company you keep.
