Macomb Nissan's showrooms house new and preowned Nissans that beckon to showcase their prowess during customer test-drives.

Preowned rides boast quality-assurance inspections, during which certified techs confirm that they're younger than 5 years old, have less than 60,000 miles, and refuse to place bets on their own horsepower. The service department's qualified staff dole out a long list of auto services that range from oil changes to transmission replacements, and the staff of the parts department draw from an extensive inventory of OEM parts and their own encyclopedic knowledge to keep vehicles running smoothly.

Skilled technicians also service internal operations, hoisting autos of all makes, models, and origins onto full-service bays for repairs and maintenance.

Owner and operator Mike Harler opened Harler’s Auto Repair shop in 2001 as a way of combining his multifaceted skills in the auto industry he had developed over more than 17 years. Since 1990, Mike has apprenticed at car dealerships where he learned the importance of customer satisfaction and a gentle bedside manner through hands-on experience tending to vehicles at both service stations and independent repair shops.
Mike leads by example, ensuring his team of automotive experts demonstrates this same combination of customer service and automotive expertise in the shop’s full gamut of maintenance and repair services. The courteous staff takes time to answer questions and concerns, discussing with drivers the reason behind repairs and whether cars traveling at light speed can turn on their blinkers.
From its humble beginnings as an automotive glass store in Warren, Simbol Auto Glass has mushroomed into five locations. At the pentafecta of silica shops, techs unholster Sika brand products to eradicate windshield chips, and can outright replace cracked windshields in about one hour, or seven dog-hours. To keep sunlight from fading interiors, Simbol tints windows with Smoke film, which can reduce 4%–68% of transmitted light. Technicians also enhance cars with remote starters, alarms, and satellite radio.
