More than 50 years ago, Mr. Transmission's technicians performed their first fix-up job. In the half century since then, the staffers have become experts at repairing manuals, automatics, and semiautomatics. They offer maintenance for transmissions and can rebuild them more effectively than a squirrel can stash things, be they acorns or auto parts. Mr. Transmission also offers free performance checks, a nationwide warranty, and AC tune-ups.
VP Automotive's technicians accomplish everything from oil changes and engine replacements to paintless dent repair and diagnostics. They work on all makes and models of cars, specializing in luxury and classic vehicles. At their collision center, certified paint and body repair professionals restore busted up vehicles to like-new condition after accidents or making Chuck Norris angry. For customers seeking a whole new look, the crew can airbrush on a new coat of paint or make customized modifications, such as beefing up fenders and adding spoilers. Additionally, they staff glass experts who repair and replace chipped windshields, or darken windows with high quality tinting films.
Founded in 1983 with a combination of Alan Cox’s mechanical know-how and Sherry Richardson’s business savvy learned at Georgia State University, Alan Cox Automotive has grown to include a team of ASE-certified technicians ready to revamp cars from Honda, Acura, Kia, Hyundai, and more, with services that span both the performance and racing spectra. Today, Sherry's technicians keep roadsters in highway-ready condition with general maintenance services and soup up autos with DynoTune installations, engine modifications, and novelty hood ornaments. Technicians stay in work mode outside of the garage, from Marshall Winkeljohn earning car-show plaudits for restoring a 1979 Honda Accord LX two-door from the frame up, to Jeremy Bucy cranking gears under pressure as a pit-crew member for Black Dog Racing.
ASE-certified technicians inhabit each America's Service Station, where vehicles can say goodbye to sludgy liquids and adopt up to 5 quarts of clean oil. Oil changes also present four-wheelers with fresh filters to protect the engine from speaking before thinking. The fall-maintenance package increases auto health to compensate for imminently excessive raw-scarecrow consumption. The bundle opens with an oil-and-filter change before a tire rotation aims to redistribute tread wear and lengthen wheels' lives. Additionally, technicians service the cooling system and refill up to one gallon of coolant, then perform a 27-point inspection—a visual examination wherein perceptive car scholars confirm that lights, brakes, and batteries haven't broken down or proclaimed themselves luddites.
