  • Quick and excellent service. I was turned away at my regular mechanic because he said he didn’t know how to do a transmission fluid change. This was my first time ever going to McCullough auto care, and I was very happy with my service. They were able to see me immediately and were patient with me considering the circumstances. Eric was great, and even matched the prices of another mechanic down the road. I will be back! Would recommend!

    Honest and fair price!!! I went in for 60k mile service. They said I only needed oil and cabin air filter changed. That is refreshing honesty! Saved me big bucks! This will be my new shop for my car service. ☺

    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!

    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.

    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.

  • Wow! I am so impressed with the service I received. Having moved here from Nashville I was nervous about finding a mechanic! These guys are BUSY but they treat every customer like their priority. I got my car repaired within two days on a weekend! Prices can’t be beat and I was getting phone calls with detailed status updates. Amazing service. Really compassionate. Please doing business! I thought I was going to have to spend thousands fixing the plate that was dragging under my car but I got it fixed for under $200! Thank you!!!

    I have used this company twice and was VERY impressed both times with the honesty, knowledge, and cost-effectiveness of the mechanics that I worked with. They were upfront with me on what I needed to do now vs what could wait, showed me where I could save money, and worked with me to make sure I had my car finished before I needed it that weekend. Again, very very impressed. I wouldn't take my car anywhere else in Atlanta.

  • 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.

  • I own and automotive repair business in Jacksonville, but my wife lives in Atlanta and needed tires for her car, so I know good service and fair pricing in this industry. I chose McCullough because of their good reviews and they did not disappoint. They were very professional and took good care of my wife. I would highly recommend them and will continue to use them for her service needs.

    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

    Eric at McCullough has been taking care of my family's [multiple] cars for over 10 years now. A Volkswagen, a Nissan, and 2 Acuras: They've done minor repairs all the way to major transmission replacements. Eric is trustworthy, honest, and tells you what really needs to be done versus what can wait. Their prices seem reasonable (although in fairness I haven't been anywhere else recently b/c I'm so pleased with them), they are timely, and always communicate what the car needs in detail. I can't recommend these guys enough!

    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.

  • I do not know if I can type out all that I want to in this review but let me say this. WOW!! Being a single father with a busy schedule I cannot tell you enough how grateful I am for Eric and his team! I have been taking my vehicle to them for over 2 years now and I would not go anywhere else. The honesty, timing and keeping their word every single time is simply priceless! They have saved me so much grief because of my current situation. For all you single fathers out there...these guys got your back! I only have one vehicle and my son and I depend on it being in the best running shape possible. Eric and his team go out of there way EVERY-SINGLE-TIME. During these special times where its harder to get even the simplest things done, that has not slowed down this business. They still give 110% with every customer and are sympathetic to their customers unique situations. People, don't look any further for a shop that you can trust and count on. You will simply waste your time and find no better service in Atlanta. Eric, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you and your guys do. Having open and honest communication with you is always a pleasure. Folks lets do our best to keep these guys busy!! They deserve everyone's business! A++++++

Signs Your Volkswagen Needs Engine Repair or Replacement

If you notice any of these issues when driving, you may need Volkswagen engine repair, maintenance, or replacement. The longer you wait to service your Volkswagen, the more in-depth maintenance may be. We’d like to encourage you to bring your Volkswagen in for service when you first notice these signs.

1 – Check Engine Light Is On

An illuminated check engine light can indicate various issues with your Volkswagen engine. The issue may be minor, like a faulty oxygen sensor, but failure to have the issue repaired promptly could lead to a failed catalytic converter, which is a much more in-depth fix.

2 – Decreased Performance

Do you notice that you aren’t getting as many miles to the gallon as before? This could be the result of any number of engine issues. Minor services, like replacing spark plugs or swapping fuel filters, can help restore engine performance.

3 – Fluid Leak

Leaking fluid is always a sign that something is wrong with your car. Your engine can suffer negatively from a coolant, antifreeze, or oil leak. If you notice fluid dripping from your Volkswagen, bring it into our shop for service.

For professional Volkswagen engine repair, maintenance, or replacement, visit McCullough NAPA Auto Care in Sandy Springs, Georgia. Our team has over 50 years of servicing Volkswagen vehicles. Feel free to call us at (404) 252-3014 or contact us online to schedule service.

Different Types of Spark Plugs & Which Is Right For Your Car

Spark plugs are essential for engine performance and come in three primary types: copper, platinum, and iridium. Platinum and iridium are also available in double variants, which we will discuss later. Installing the correct spark plug is essential based on your type of vehicle and should be based on your engine’s specific design. Copper plugs, known for their high conductivity, are more affordable but have a shorter lifespan. Platinum and iridium plugs, though more costly, offer greater durability.
