Sutherlin Nissan Mall of Georgia's fleet of professional technicians rejuvenates every type of vehicle, fusing a professional understanding of iron horses with advanced equipment and speedy servicing times. Your roadster's 45-minute spa experience begins with an oil and filter change, allowing new fluids to flow through its motor-powered veins and keeping out dirt and dust. Next, the auto aesthetician performs a multipoint inspection, checking routine problem areas such as wipers, tires, and overburdened cup holders for safety. A tire rotation follows, ensuring proper wear on all four wagon wheels. Finally, a wash and interior vacuum leaves car exteriors, floors, and seats immaculate, free of cookie crumbs, debris, and the never-seen 14th sequel to The Land Before Time.
Voted as the area's best car wash from 2006–2008, Mill Creek Car Wash offers vehicular services ranging from detailing packages to oil changes and emissions testing. A lamb's-cloth auto-wash loosens dirt and debris from exteriors as cars await helpings of wheel cleaner, tire shine, and Rain-X Complete surface protectant. At the end of the wash, technicians pick up where their robotic counterparts left off, hand drying and vacuuming vehicles and whispering words of encouragement in their tire valves. Crews also dole out four types of detailing packages, sprucing up exteriors with a buff or hand wax and preserving interior landscapes with vinyl and leather conditioner. Meanwhile, technicians man the lube shop, where they fill engines with Castrol or Mobil 1 oil, flush transmissions, and replace batteries.

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 tests. 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.
