Delivering Outstanding Service for Over 20 Years!!

Advance Auto Center, owned and operated by brothers Michael and Stephen Solari, has been delivering outstanding service and repair for all foreign and domestic vehicles for over 20 years.

Established in 1989, our satisfied customers have been with us for so long that their children are now customers too. “Word of Mouth” has always been our best advertisement. We handle a wide range of repairs every day. We start with a thorough diagnosis of the problem. We then call you with an explanation of the repairs needed and an estimate that includes any charges for parts and labor.

Family owned and customer focused, we make sure that you can count on your vehicle–not worry about it.

We believe that your vehicle’s main purpose is to serve you, doing what you want it to do, not dictating what you will be able to do. So give us a call, or stop by to see us, you will get to know that we have the background needed to keep your vehicle running like it was made to.

I just moved to the area and recently brought my girlfriend's car to Advanced Auto Center to get the water pump and timing belts replaced. They did an amazing job and took the time to explain EVERYTHING to us in terms that anyone could understand.

The guys at the shop were great and gave us a loaner car when the repairs took longer than expected when due to some stubborn nuts and bolts! We were not expecting this at all.

Great experience and will be bringing my car back to them again and again while I am in the Boston area!

Run by two brothers who live locally. Honest and hardworking, but not cheap. I definitely recommend them. They only do the work you need, and guarantee all work.
