November 17, 2010

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.
