I wanted to keep my paid for 1998 dodge pickup on the road so i had Atlas auto do a general mechanical check over.I knew it needed a front suspension overhaul and brake repairs. I also complained about a noise in the rear end. Atlas rebuilt the front suspension using moog chassis parts and monroe reflex shocks.The front worn out brake pads and thin brake rotors were replaced.The rear differential cover was removed,the bad posi carrier parts and bearings were replaced.If i would have continued driving the truck it would have damaged more parts costing big $$$. My truck sounds and drives great now. My advice is that you can drive it safer and longer by fixing it before it breaks while avoiding those five year.$500 a month car notes.Another good thing is that Atlas Auto has been there since 1979 and the service mgr has been there since 1988. Most places you go in and never see the same guy twice.

As quality of service goes, Atlas Auto is pretty much perfect. I didnt give them those 5's just because I like them; those scores are well-deserved. The catch, however, is that they're rather expensive. I don't have much experience with mechanics, but I'd say Atlas Auto charges well above average. of course, theyre probably worth it, too. they point out future areas for repair, recommend preventive work, clean out your car, and do a really solid job on all repairs. I recently took my Accord in to fix a mystery noise, and it turned out the Discount Tire people had broken a wheel nut of some sort while tightening it with their overpowered air guns. It took them hours to get the wheel off and cost me 500 bucks, but if I had gone to them for tire balancing in the first place it would never have happened, and a different dealer would probably have never figured it out, or made me replace the whole hub. plus, atlas auto tuned up my rear brakes while they were at it. basically, I would recommend Atlas Auto if you want your car to run as well as possible and last you as long as possible before needing major (and costly) repairs. I personally just dont have enough money to keep my nine-year- old car in such good condition, so I usually try to take the cheaper route of just doing the essential repairs. Ive been trying to find a more affordable place in the area for when the problem is simple or when I know exactly what's wrong. oh, one thing to watch out for: they print out even the smallest problems on your invoices, which makes it a real bitch to sell the car if the buyer asks to see the repair/maintenance history. you should probably ask them not to do that; I sure wish I had.

My husband and I have used Altas exclusively for at least 20 years. We both buy new vehicles and keep them until we find them in the driveway one day on their roofs with the wheels spinning in the air. My husband was able to keep a GMC full-size van for 13 years and 275k miles because of Mike/Joe/Jeff's advice and care. My 10 year-old F-150 just turned 185k and I fully expect to keep her another 5 years. I, unlike my husband, occasionaly turn off my truck. . . . . One of the things I appreciate about Atlas is that they will tell you they can't find anything wrong, rather than fabricate something just so they can charge me. They told me once to take my F-150 to the Ford dealership to see if they could find something wrong when I sensed a mystery noise. Yea right! Point being, they aren't afraid of second opinions. Their shop is always immaculate. That tells me they have a lot of pride in what they do, and are concerned about their employees' and customers' safety. Terry Sidwell

I like to keep a car a long time. I have Atlas Auto change my oil every 3k miles or so. They keep an eye on things and suggest repairs when they are needed.They even point out warranty items that dealers sometimes miss. I once had a noise in my car while driving. I had the dealer look at it .The dealer said it was only tire noise and rotated the tires.I had Atlas Auto road test it and they traced the noise to the transmission. The car was then dropped back off to the dealer by Atlas and the dealer replaced the transmission under warranty. If that would have gone past my warranty it would have cost me several thousand dollars!

A/c was not cooling very well. Dealer said i needed a new compressor. Had atlas give a second opinion. The found a plastic bag affecting the air flow through the cooling fan. Now the a/c cools well.

I had Atlas check my car before my trip. They found the engine air filter dirty, i needed new tires,a wheel alignment and an oil change/lube job. After they serviced the car i even got better gas mileage on my trip. I recommend them to check out your car to save on gas.

I like not having to drive a long way to have my Jaguar repaired. Atlas Auto can fix your Jaguar so that you can avoid the dealer and the high pressure to buy a new car. I keep my cars a long time and don't like car notes. Ask for Jeff or Russ.

My dodge truck was not shifting right. I was told that i needed a transmission overhaul for $2400. I took my truck to Atlas for a second opinion. After a test drive and basic testing they found a bad shift cable. The repair was $190.00 and it shifts like new. I am very happy with Jeff and his crew.
