AA provides excellent auto service and has a friendly staff that speaks English well. Based on my needs, expectations were set and AA followed through on time. I was asked if I wanted to see the old parts (I did) and I believe that is a credibility-building process for customers.

by - Verified Customer August 30, 2016

The main reason that I continue to patronize you shop is because of the professional and trusted advice and service that Buu provides. Saturday service would be appreciated for those of us that work during the week!

by - Verified Customer August 23, 2016

Shop staff were highly competent and friendly. This may be the most trustworthy auto shop with which I have ever done business.

by - Verified Customer August 18, 2016

It hasn't been my first visit, but starting at the front office everything was in line with what i was told, no surprises, timely updates, and the work was done on time, as promised...

They were extremely helpful and friendly. They quickly diagnosed the problem and since the fix was so small, they only charged me the diagnosis fee.

by - Verified Customer July 21, 2016

On time, professional, and friendly.

by - Verified Customer July 15, 2016

Oil change was prompt, and additional filter was changed based on recommendation. Very friendly and clear about the services, and took time to go over the current status of my car's part (tire, etc...).

by - Verified Customer July 13, 2016

Tanya provided excellent customer service, and Advanced Automotive does excellent work. Even my local dealership (I only go to the dealership for recalls) thinks highly of Advanced Automotive.

I paid about $450 for nothing.

by - Verified Customer June 17, 2016

I have used this shop for many years and have known Patrick and Leo well. What worries me most at this time is the change of ownership. Time will tell if they continue to earn the trust I have have.

by June 17, 2016

Since Leo has retired. The price of oil change went up from $44 to $88.

I've been going to Advanced Automotive for service for years. The staff and technicians are great and friendly. Compared to dealership prices and staff, they are more competitive and don't try to up sell you in uncool ways which I greatly appreciate.

The repair job was well done, timely, and at a competitive price. Patrick is knowledgeable, always courteous and responsive.

by - Verified Customer January 12, 2016

The problems were identified clearly and fixed to my satisfaction.

by - Verified Customer January 11, 2016

Prices are INDUSTRY average BUT they keep good accurate records of all of your cars. They have recommended that some repairs that I was wondering about NOT BE done (they didn't take advantage of my fears). They work hard and do the job right the first time around.

It is good. The service was great.

I usually work on cars. When I can't I take them to Henry he is the master mechanic there. He helped me with the crankshaft in my Toyota truck. He gave me a great price.
