Mullinax Auto Marine Repair
Broken down in the mountains 600 miles from home.Our family came to Dahlonega, GA for a weekend getaway. Unfortunately our 130,000 mile van’s transmission started grinding and slipping badly after just one trip up the mountain to the house we had rented. I knew it wouldn’t make it a second time.The landlord recommended Mullinex Auto and Marine. I’m a gear head so I have a good idea what it takes/costs to do most repairs (I do most myself) and I was considering all options from leaving the car for repair to somehow getting it home – over 600 miles away – along with four people and two dogs. As I discussed all of the options with Craig Mullinex he shared honest, unbiased knowledge of each, never trying to sell me on having him do the repair.It was obvious the best and least expensive choice was to let Craig and his team install a rebuilt transmission from a top reputation national rebuilder that included a three-year 100,000 mile nationwide transferrable warranty. I returned to Dahlonega a week later and my van was perfectly repaired, and road tested. Now with over 4,000 miles on it, the transmission shifts smoothly and has full power transfer. Quite frankly, the van drives better than when it was new!Huge thanks to Mullinex Auto and Marine for a fantastic repair experience and even more so for treating strangers like friends!Don I

Mullinax Auto Marine Repair
I had a great experience with the mechanics at Mullinax Auto and Marine. I was an hour away from home when I had car problems in Dahlonega. The mechanics came to fix my car quickly so that I could get back home. They were very knowledgeable about what they were doing and had me going in no time. I had called two other shops before them and I told them what was going on, but Mullinax Auto and Marine were the only ones who knew what my problem was as soon as I described the situation to them. They came to my rescue so that I didn't have to be stranded anymore. They were very honest and friendly. I would highly recommend them.

I don't know why everyone is writing bad reviews on this shop. I was told about this shop by the guy who pushed my car off the road when it died. It only took a few days for the repair and the price was very reasonable. The owner was very nice and explained to me exactly what was going on with my car. I would go to them again and would recommend them to friends.

Trustworthy, honest and reasonably priced, quality work. These are the reasons why many of my neighbors and myself have used Mullinax as our auto repair service over the years.
Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
