About BigD Automotive

Jump to: History | Our Team | Join Our Team | Reviews

Big D Automotive mechanics have over 65 years experience with all types of automotive repair.

We are family owned and operated and are located on Dahlonega Highway (in the old C&W Auto Sales facility) just north of downtown Cumming, Georgia.

We perform all kinds of major and minor auto repairs as well as regularly scheduled maintenance to keep your vehicles working efficiently and in top shape. We also tackle and solve the problems other places can't or won't touch.

We price our work fairly and are usually the best deal in town when it comes to getting the job done at a cost you can afford.

We have many satisfied customers and invite you to come in and see for yourself why you can trust BigD to keep you and your car on the road.


BigD was formally established in 2009. We had a tool box, a dream and a desire to bring fair, honest, quality auto repair services to our neighbors.
