Alps Road 76 Auto Repair & Service station in Athens, GA is simply the best. Mr. Charles is an honest, dependable and humble man. My family has taken our old cars “off and on” to Mr. Charles for over 15 years. There was a period when my husband took his new car to the dealership for service or repair because they had a TV on the wall, coffee machine and leather couches. Well, Mr. Charles doesn’t have any of this in his shop, but what he does have is a very reliable service with reasonable prices and short repair times. Typically, your car is repaired/serviced the same or next day after you drop it off. It may take longer if your car requires a part that needs to be shipped from overseas, for example.One evening, I was driving from work and all of a sudden, I heard a metal screech/scrape sound. I parked and called Charles because I was not sure if it was safe for me to continue driving. It was right about the time he was closing his shop. He offered to stop by where I was located on his way home to look at the car!!! He didn’t know who I was. I was just another customer. That’s the kind of man he is. I really appreciated he stopped by to assess the issue. I ended up towing the car to his station, and it was fixed by 10 am next day.Charles, thank you for servicing the community for years! I hope you will continue doing so for many years to come. You and your guys are terrific!

Just bought a gallon of milk at their store. Once I got home it was dripping on the side, took it back and they wouldn't change it. Never buying here again.

Watch out!!! The handles on the gas pumps do not work, and when gas sprays out of your car and all over you THEY WILL SAY IT IS YOUR OWN FAULT. This happened to me on 1-14-13, and they refused to refund the charge for the gas that was everywhere except in my tank in spite of the cause being their own badly maintained gas pump. I am filing a report with the Better Business Bureau; maybe they will change and become the kind of place that takes care of its customers.
Tips & Advices
Driver can find the cheapest gas prices by using an app to search for the lowest prices in their area.  Some apps such as Gas Guru take note of your location, and provide a list of gas stations nearby, along with the cost of gas currently being sold at each station.
There are things you can do to slightly improve the fuel efficiency of your vehicle. Make sure your car's tires are properly inflated, and treat your engine to regular tune-ups. Check your engine's air filter, since a dirty air filter will compromise fuel economy.
Drivers must shut their engine off before pumping gas because it's illegal to fuel with the engine running, even though this law isn't always aggressively enforced. Pumping gas with the engine running can compromise your safety. When your car's engine is running, it's possible for its catalytic converters to generate heat that could ignite gasoline, and start a fire.
Even though many gas stations have warnings advising you not to use your cell phone while fueling, the chances of cell phones igniting a gasoline vapor fire are extremely remote. However, fires at the gas pump may be caused by static electricity discharge. For safe fueling, it's recommended that you turn off your car's engine and avoid smoking at the pump. Also, you should never re-enter your vehicle while refueling.
Many factors contribute to the lack of uniformity in gas prices. Retailers consider their tax responsibilities when setting gas prices. States place varying taxes on gasoline retailers, and a state with higher taxes will have higher gas prices than a state in which the taxes are lower. Also, if a gas station is located in an especially competitive area, a branded operator may receive wholesale discounts that allow the station to sell gas at a lower price. This is done by brands to keep their gas competitive in tight markets.
