James, the owner, cares greatly for his customers. He goes well above and beyond the "oil change", whereby ensuring you drive away in the safest and best performing manner your car can provide you.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff and will certainly be my first choice in future.

This is the most competent RV place I have ever dealt with. The owner and his staff never give up on a problem until it is solved. I will travel to get to their side. That is the kind of professionalism you get from a family run business! Thank you!

by - Verified Customer May 31, 2016

Excellent service. Workshop was spotless confirming they obviously respect my car and their own work. Original quote was reduced significantly at payment because certain parts were not used. Many other businesses would not give the customer this benefit.

James has restored my faith in honest and knowledgeable mechanics. Advantage Automotive was able to diagnose and fix our power problems with our moving truck within a few days. The last mechanic had the truck for a week and never corrected the same problem. James and Advantage Automotive have earned a customer for life!
