Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let Dependable Automotive Center replace your worn out hubs today.
Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit Dependable Automotive Center today.
Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 770-879-5799 or visit Dependable Automotive Center today.
A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit Dependable Automotive Center in Stone Mountain, GA 30083 today.
Mobile repair is a type of auto repair service whereby the repair mechanic comes to you. At Dependable Automotive Center in Stone Mountain, GA 30083, we understand that most people do not have the time to wait in repair shops and they would rather have their vehicles repaired from their home, workplace, or roadside (if it has broken down on the roadside). We offer mobile repair service. Call us today at 770-879-5799 and tell us where you want your vehicle serviced.
Most Extended Warranties Accepted
An extended warranty (also known as a service contract) can provide peace of mind to most car buyers. The warranty (or service contract) kicks in after the usual manufacturer warranty has expired. An extended warranty covers major breakdowns and evens out the cost of repairs. Unfortunately, not all auto repair shops accept extended warranties. At Dependable Automotive Center in Stone Mountain, GA 30083, we accept most extended warranties. We let you use the service contract to save on auto repair costs.
Are you planning to buy a new car? Don't take chances. Be confident about the car you are buying. Have pre-purchase inspections performed on the vehicle. Pre-purchase inspections involve examining the car's condition to ensure it is worth buying. At Dependable Automotive Center, we have pre-purchase inspection experts - mechanics who will scrutinize any car, make, and model and allow you to make an informed decision. Pre-purchase inspections will definitely give you peace of mind when you buy your next used car.
The importance of a pre-trip inspection cannot be overstated, as it can be the decisive factor between a safe journey and one that ends in disaster. This inspection aims to identify potential defects and mechanical issues that might lead to accidents or breakdowns. Before embarking on your trip, it is essential to ensure that your vehicle undergoes a comprehensive safety inspection. Feel free to drop by or give us a call at 770-879-5799.
Encountering issues with your recreational vehicle can be challenging. It's crucial not to entrust your RV to just any mechanic. For all your RV repair and maintenance needs, do not hesitate to contact us or visit our shop.
Wheel bearings are located within the wheels and enable them to rotate freely while being connected to the brake system. Over time, these bearings can wear out, leading to a vibrating suspension and audible rubbing noises during driving. If they break down completely, the vehicle becomes extremely difficult to control and unsafe to drive. The replacement interval for wheel bearings can vary significantly, but it is essential to periodically check them for any leaks or signs of wear.
Ok so my SUV broke down. I brought it to this guy hopeless that it could be fixed for under $500. But he did it!!!! He fixed my Beauty and made her all better again for allot less than $500. He kept in contact with me during the whole process and let me know everything he was going to do before he did it. He was very professional and super nice. I'm so grateful to him for fixing my car and getting me on my way. I would recommend you go to him for any car repairs you might need. He provides affordable service for fair prices in a timely manner. Thank you so much for saving my car.
