For more than 20 years, the certified technicians at DEKRA Emission Check have done one thing and done it well: superfast Georgia-state vehicle-emissions inspections. Although most patrons choose to stay in the car and alphabetize their eight-track collection during the typically five-minute inspection, many of the growing list of almost 30 Atlanta-area locations feature an indoor lounge for auto owners to kick back in. If a vehicle’s emissions exceed the regulated limit, the team advises drivers of their options and performs a free retest at a later date.
Since its creation in 1925, DEKRA Emission Check’s umbrella company, DEKRA, has grown to include more than 30,000 employees in 50 countries. In addition to having performed more than three million vehicle inspections in the United States, the larger business offers services such as expert appraisals, industrial product testing and certifications, and management-system certifications.
Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Just Brakes has expanded from one auto shop to more than 160 outposts across eight states. At every location, ASE-certified technicians maintain vehicle safety with the standard brake service including a lifetime warranty on parts, labor and platonic love. Though their specialty is brakes, the techs also perform routine maintenance and repairs such as oil changes, factory maintenance services, batteries, belt replacement, and fluid services.
Started by local Catherine Simpson over 10 years ago, Catherine’s Auto Repair boasts engine experts that pamper most domestic and imported street gliders with a smorgasbord of services to ensure smooth cement sailing. With today’s deal, a mechanic will swap out sludgy oil for up to six quarts of pristine, nonsynthetic lubricant before installing a new filter. Then windshields will receive new front wiper blades to ensure visibility during morning commutes, weekend road trips, and romps through the time-space continuum. Afterward, four-wheeled friends undergo a thorough check-up, which includes a fluid check, fluid topping, and an inspection of belts, hoses, brakes, tires, exhaust, axles, steering, suspension, lights, and tire rotation if needed. Catherine’s conveniently provides shuttle services for nearby locations to ferry road warriors to and from work, school, or monster-truck rallies while vehicles receive full-service beautifications. Call ahead for appointments.
The automotive podiatrists at Tire South keep cars rolling smoothly with precise calibrations and new sets of rubber soles. During the wheel alignment, techs ensure that each tire is parallel to the others, and perpendicular to the ground. The rotation and balance works to prolong each tire's lifespan by evenly distributing the tread wear. The maintenance package lasts from 60 to 120 minutes, and varies depending on the make and model of vehicles, and whether or not the car had to be sedated. Alternatively, swap road-weary donuts for a pair or a set of reliable new tires from well-known brands such as Goodyear, Uniroyal, and Continental.
Pro Drive's expert mechanics, who collectively have serviced more than 50,000 vehicles, will uncork your vehicle, let the dirty oil drain out, and replace it with brand new 10W30 oil and a new filter to match. All vehicle bloods are checked and topped off, and Pro Drive will ensure that all under-hood spinners, twirlers, and hummers are operating correctly. Tires get rotated (and balanced, if needed) and the air pressure is adjusted to meet factory recommendations. During the procedure, which takes about 45–60 minutes, guests can peruse a stack of magazines in the comfortable lobby, sip coffee and water, or grab a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant. Car and driver can rest assured, because all work has a warranty and Pro Drive is BBB-rated A.
