Auto Repair in Atlanta

Auto Repair in Atlanta or any other area should not be guesswork.

According to the Police Dept. auto repair rip-offs consistently rank as the number one consumers’ complaint throughout the nation. Following are some tips to help you avoid these pitfalls.

Find an auto repair shop before you need one.

This will remove the pressure of making a last-minute choice. Ask friends, family members or co-workers to recommend an auto repair shop in Dunwoody or Doraville that they trust.  You can also read online customer reviews on Google+, Facebook, Yelp, etc. Tilly Mill Goodyear Auto Center, serving Doraville, Dunwoody, and Chamblee, provides customer reviews here.

Be certain the shop is qualified to complete the necessary repair.

Ask if the shop has experience working on the same type of vehicle as yours and whether they have done this type of repair before. Make sure the shop hires ASE Certified Mechanics.

If the repair exceeds $50, ask for a written estimate.

Make sure the estimate specifically identifies the condition to be repaired, the parts needed and the anticipated labor charge. The auto repair shop must contact you before exceeding the estimate by $10 or 10%, whichever is greater.


Remember to follow the manufacturer’s maintenance schedule.
