From the moment you drop your vehicle off to when you drive it away, you’ll experience professionalism and quality service. Too often are squealing or grinding brakes overlooked by drivers.

Good, honest, and fair shop. If you are in sandy spring, I would not go anywhere else. Family owned and operated - take care of their customers and their crew it seems. 6 stars

McCullough has been my family's go-to mechanic for decades. Don't know what I would do without them - just a super-nice family that will take care of your cars. Their service is important to us because once we get a new car, we like to hold onto it for years (10-12). Highly recommend.
December 3, 2021
This is the best place you could possibly go to take care of your car! My family and I have been going here for over 15 years and we recommend them to everyone. Eric, Bryan, and Graham are the most trustworthy guys and truly care about their customers. We all love them and are so thankful we found them!!
October 12, 2021
Very honest mechanics. Eric kept me in the loop with my cars progress. I got the car back in a reasonable amount of time considering the work that had to be done.
January 30, 2020
I have known Eric and the facility for over 30 years. The service from both a customer and repair stand point is excellent. You can expect to be treated with a high level of professional performance, and courtesy.

McCullough Auto Care has earned our trust over the past two years by consistently giving us quality, reliable repairs at fair prices. The staff is polite, knowledgeable, and never tries to talk us into things we don't need or want. We will continue to trust McCullough for all of our repairs.

Eric has been my service manager for years. He is always professional and easy to deal with. He goes out of his way to take care of your needs and makes accommodations to the customer when needed. They will ferry me and my car to and from their shop (I live within blocks) and I appreciate that very much. Everyone at McCullough is nice, friendly and helpful.

My truck broke down when we got to Atlanta on the way to Disney world. A local stopped to help us and recommended this place. This place got me in and got the radiator fixed for a very fair price and on our way the next day very quickly. I was so impressed and it's no surprise they are very busy. Thank you so much and my family all got to the resort and is having a great time!! These people are great and will get your vehicle fixed for a fair price. Plus, you get Napa warranty all over the country at least I did on the repair I got. Please support them!!!

Out of town for work and needed an alternator changed immediately and McCullough's was the only place that said they could and would do it! Reasonably Priced and Great Customer Service! Will definitely be back if ever in the area.
January 19, 2022
I received great service from this location! I called them about replacing a serpentine belt and they got it done for me the very next morning. It was quick, and cheaper than some other places that I had called for the same service. Eric and his team did a great job, and they were very nice! I will definitely return for any other auto repair I may need in the future.
July 13, 2021
Eric was amazingly helpful to work with. Great communication around the whole process. He was great about calling out things that could be done without being pushy about doing them. Would highly recommend!
February 27, 2021
This place is exactly the kind of service you come to expect. Great service, timely, and they never assume I don’t know what I’m talking about because I’m a girl.

I had a check engine light on Saturday afternoon, ended up being an engine coil pack needing to be replaced. It was obviously super busy and I knew I would need to leave it until Monday to get looked at. Staff was very informative and communication was excellent. Got it looked at Monday and ordered necessary part to come in the next day. Went ahead and did the spark plugs as well since I was nearing 60k miles. Picked it up after lunch with no issues. Seems like they do really well with the small space provided and very busy area right off 285
July 21, 2021
The technicians are excellent, very experienced, and the customer service is great. Everything was explained in detail so that I would understand.
December 1, 2020
Great customer service! Eric and team did an awesome job coordinating their busy schedule with the schedule of my girlfriend and myself so that we would have a car during the work week and then trade off cars when the other was ready. They are extremely friendly and it felt like they had us as the customer in mind. Highly recommend!

I may have written one other recommendation in my of 50 years, but after doing business with Eric McCullough for 35 of those years it is time to write another one. He maintained and serviced my auto's, my wife, kids and employees for 32 of those 35 years. He has stood behind the work on everything he and his employees have done. He operates his business with great honesty and integrity. I highly recommend doing business. with McCullough

My vehicle was on the verge of breaking down while I was in Sandy Springs for work last week (I live in a different town), and my boyfriend had determined that it was a problem with the alternator. He helped me find McCulloch Auto Care, which was right down the street. We'd noticed the good reviews, and we took a chance! The staff is super friendly, professional, and kind. They were able to confirm our suspicions about my car's specific issues, and took us as soon as they could. I was so impressed with their customer service. They really went above and beyond to meet my repair needs, had a fair price, and worked quickly to repair the issue. I almost wish I lived closer just so that I could have my car serviced here more often! Great family owned business.
February 15, 2021
Able to fix issue with my 2011 truck other shops could not address- very hard to diagnose mechanical issue another reputable shops couldn’t figure out. Good prices, done on time, and with expert mechanics. Will have them work on all of my vehicles and highly recommended. Support a family owned business for a change!
February 23, 2021
Always extremely professional. Willing to work with customers. Sadly, car repair is expensive but they have worked with me. Graham has been extremely helpful with issues my daughter was having with her car while we were at another mechanic in the area. We asked on Nextdoor for recommendations and McCullough came up numerous times!
May 14, 2020
My experience was surprisingly excellent. I was greeted immediately before I could actually get out my car. Eric was professional and friendly. Eric Followed up with me has promised. I really like that Eric shares real honest timing/wait expectations.
July 20, 2020
This has to be the best shop in town! When I got my car fixed the last time, It drove live new. I've never been so happy to get my car fixed in my life. They were very friendly and honest. This will be my go to place from now on. Not too far from my house which is a huge plus but even if it were, I'd be game to making the trip. Thanks for being honest and giving great service!
October 9, 2019
Graham is great. Kept me informed of my repairs and provided an accurate quote. Pleased with the results. Walked away feeling this place is trustworthy and does quality work. Found them through nextdoor app and now I see why they have such great reviews.
July 27, 2020
Eric and his staff were great and helpful. The pricing was fair, and they let us know every step of the way what was wrong and what needed to be changed.
June 28, 2020
Have been going to McCollough’s for decades! Once I found them, I knew they were honest and professional. Not often one can say that about an auto repair place. They have helped me keep my older vehicles safely on the road for longer than I could imagine. I have always been treated with respect, no matter how large or small the issue, which is excellent and reassuring for an older woman.Highly recommend them!
March 16, 2022
I have used McCullough for maintenance on my prior vehicle and received great service. Recently I had to repair my front bumper - I received an estimate for repair services that was reasonable. The estimated turn around time was less days than other auto shops. The best part was, the staff (Graham) was accommodating with my schedule and the repair was completed as expected/on time. The work completed was great. I absolutely recommended McCullough for auto care services.
February 23, 2021
What more is there to say? These guys are amazing. Their service is very thorough and quick. I was so worried about the cost of my repair but Eric and Brian put me at ease with their extremely reasonable prices! My truck is running like it's brand new again and I can't thank these guys enough!

Read More About Brake Repair and Replacement
At some point, you may find yourself behind the wheel, puzzled by the reflection of your car in a storefront window or another vehicle’s reaction, realizing your brake lights are not working. Driving with bad brake lights is a safety hazard. The good news is that the common reasons brake lights don’t work can easily be fixed.
Brakes are a crucial component of your car, but they are sometimes neglected until a significant issue arises. Since brakes and brake pads are pivotal for your vehicle’s safety, waiting until they malfunction is dangerous. It’s essential to stay alert to the signs that suggest you may need brake service. Here are the top ten indicators suggesting your car requires brake service.
Vehicle braking systems are hydraulic, meaning they work by pushing pressurized fluid through the brake line to apply stopping power. Sometimes an air bubble will form within a brake line and cause them to feel spongy or take longer to stop the vehicle. The process of removing air from the hydraulic brake system is called bleeding.
If your brakes make noise when you press the pedal, they are trying to tell you something. Some sounds can indicate that your brake pads are worn out, and others can hint that damage has been dealt over time. It’s best not to ignore brake noise if you hear it. Bring your vehicle into our shop instead to have our technicians diagnose the sound and offer our recommendation for what repairs are needed.
A properly functioning brake pedal should feel firm when you press it. A soft or spongy brake pedal describes a pedal that does not have the proper amount of firmness or resistance when you press it. A spongy brake pedal is dangerous for you, your passengers, and other drivers.
