Meet Jennifer Muir, our Co-Owner // Business Manager at Brighton Auto Repair. She is the wife of Eric Muir, and has maintained her full-time position for 25 years at Citizens Insurance / Hanover Insurance in Howell, MI. Most of her career has been in Information Technology as a Small Commercial Business Analyst and Software Engineer. She is behind the scenes at Brighton Auto Repair filling in the gaps (doing all of the other stuff that needs to happen in order to run a successful business besides working in the front lobby and on cars). <wink> She loves projects and helping people, so making the decision in March 2015 to purchase this location with her husband Eric was a great fit for her. She is a big trucks and fast cars kind of girl. During her downtime, she loves hanging with family (including her grand-babies Ronan, Kira and Triton who you will see here and there throughout the pictures), friends, boat rides and bonfires. Let's ROCK, shall we!!

People say the nicest things...

People say the nicest things...

“The best mechanic in town. Eric takes the time to discuss what he's done and and his recommendations for your vehicle. He never gives you what you don't need and treats your car as if he were fixing it for someone in his family. I trust him and everyone in his small business and I have actually told my mother in law to bring her car out to him for service, and she lives in Livonia. He does phenomenal work and is the best there is at what he does. He's a true master of his craft and is very humble as well. Heather is also very knowledgeable and an absolute joy to deal with. I've always had positive experiences with Brighton auto and will continue to take all of my vehicles to Eric."

Jason E. / Pinckney, MI

“Setting the high-bar for customer service! 

Brighton Auto Repair is setting a new high mark for customer service in Brighton. The other day, my daughter had a headlight out on her Volvo, I changed the bulb, but that wasn't the problem. The fog was predicted to be bad again and I didn't want her driving with one headlight. They were swamped, but Heather worked us in and Eric took the time to trace the problem to a break in the wiring, well up in the loom. Problem fixed and for a very reasonable price! Not only are they the most talented technical professionals in Brighton, they show a level of customer care and sincerity rarely seen any more in automotive service. My thanks to the whole team!"

Brian P./ Brighton, MI

“These guys are top notch, they know what it takes to get your vehicle running properly the first time, and they're soo soo nice on top of that! Highly recommend them to everyone."

Toby S. / Hamburg, MI

“Love Them!

They know their stuff!"
