About Us

At Labadie Auto Company, we take great pride in making the sales and service experience as stress-free and upfront as possible. Since 1946, our family-owned and operated dealerships are about more than making a sale, we are about building relationships and providing the best customer service possible.

Labadie Auto Company operates two dealerships in Bay City, Michigan, providing Cadillac, Buick, GMC, and Toyota to the Great Lakes Bay Region.

In addition to providing our customers with top-notch sales and service, we are also dedicated to helping others. We are proud supporters of local businesses and organizations including the Bay Area Women’s Center, the American Cancer Society, the Salvation Army, and Relay for Life.

Labadie History

Labadie, Inc. was founded by Lloyd Labadie after World War II in the South side of Bay City. Lloyd began a used car operation and was truly one of the pioneers of a successfully run used automobile operation.

Lloyd began his company with a strong commitment to "servicing the customer after the sale," which built a strong reputation in the Bay City market. His success as a customer-focused used vehicle dealer allowed him to purchase the Oldsmobile franchise in 1966.

In 1970, Gary Labadie took over the General Manager role and began the New Vehicle department. Gary purchased the dealership from his father and became President in 1978.

Continued success allowed Gary to purchase Mitchell Cadillac in 1979. After further success with both Oldsmobile and Cadillac, Gary purchased the GMC Truck franchise in 1987. The addition of trucks to Labadie's product offering has been a critical element to the growth of this company.

In November of 1995, Labadie, Inc. moved to its present location at 711 S. Euclid. The new state-of-the-art facility has helped the company become one of the largest dealers in the Tri-Cities. Today, Labadie continues to be the highest-volume dealership in the Tri-Cities.

Marc Labadie joined the company in 1996 as the third generation of the family and he continues to serve as the Vice President and General Manager. Soon after he joined the company, General Motors announced the phase-out of the Oldsmobile line. In order to compensate for the loss of Oldsmobile, Labadie purchased the Buick franchise in May of 2002 to round out its GM product portfolio.

Labadie also acquired the Jeep franchise in 2002 and then quickly added the Toyota franchise in January 2003. Today, Toyota at the North Euclid location owes its rapidly growing success due to the same philosophy of "aggressively servicing the customer before and after the sale".

Community Involvement


Labadie Auto Company makes it a priority to support the communities that have kept us in business all these years. From the American Cancer Society and Good Samaritan Rescue Mission to local public schools and sports, we’re proud to sponsor and partner with an array of organizations and charities.



The Bay Area Women’s Center serves as a resource for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Through the BAWC, people can access crisis intervention, counseling, advocacy and emergency shelter free of charge. The Labadie team loves supporting annual BAWC events including Power of the Purse, a silent auction of hundreds of purses.



The American Cancer Society provides an array of services to support cancer patients, their families, and caregivers in every way possible. We’ve recently partnered with our local American Cancer Society chapter to fundraise for breast cancer awareness events and Relay For Life. Annual Relay For Life events take place around the world, and we’re proud to do our part in supporting this great cause.



Have you visited the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum yet? This art museum in Saginaw boasts a collection of stunning works by Detroit-based sculptor, Marshall M. Fredericks. Labadie Auto Group has sponsored the Saints, Sinners & Stars Gala, an annual fundraising event to keep museum tickets free for years.


Safe Harbor Kitchen is a food pantry located in the Banks District that gives back to those in need. The Safe Harbor Pantry serves over 10,000 pounds of food a month to over 500 families and has just begun a new program where they provide 17,000-21,000 pounds of food to over 1,000 people. Do you want to help prepare meals? Reach out to Safe Harbor, an organization that’s committed to providing respect, hospitality, and a welcoming environment. We encourage those interested in volunteering in any capacity to contact Safe Harbor Kitchen or our Bay City GMC dealership today to learn more!
