Message from the Shop


Anyone who’s been in the area long enough knows Total Automotive as the place to go for Howell auto repair and maintenance. It’s been since 1991, actually, that Dennis Marbury first opened the doors and started providing the best auto repair service in Howell, Brighton, Cohoctah, Fowlerville, Pinckney, and anywhere else in the area.

Simply put, when you come to Total Automotive, something just feels different. Because it is. We understand that getting your vehicle repaired is a hassle, and we seek to make the whole process as easy and convenient as possible. Customer service is something that seems to be missing in many industries today, but it is the main focus of our Howell auto repair shop. We get your car fixed and back on the road as quickly as possible and we keep you up to date on the whole process, so that you never think “I wonder what is going on with my car?”

They have always done exceptional work. I was a little worried when they changed owners this summer but their service is still exceptional.
