i wish i could rate this place 10+ stars over and above the 5.We moved to Livermore in 2013 to be close to our grandkids. Just as it was important to find a health care provider and primary care Drs for us, it was important to find a car care center and skilled diagnosticians for our cars that we could trust implicitly. We know car maintenance is expensive, but preventive care is even more valuable to us as our cars are used, have their own personalities. At our previous location it was not uncommon for us to shift from one place to place to another if one could not solve the problem. In Livermore, we have found a home and trust Dave Huston and the members of his skilled shop.I know this shop excels in diagnosing electrical problems, big or small. Let me give you an example. My wife drives a 2001 Honda that she highly depends upon to get her to and from several places in the east bay for her consulting work. Talk about personalities between car and driver: she has the untoward habit of relying on the onboard alarm to go off if she leaves the lights on after she turns the car off. However, an intermittent problem started before we moved to Livermore. The alarm would not go off and she would repeatedly leave the lights on and the battery would drain. Our previous shop could not, and would not take the time, to diagnose this problem, and she could not change her behavior because she was always in a rush. The problem became more frequent after we moved. Knowing my wife's habits, Dave and his shop took the time to trace and cure the problem, even though it was esoteric and hidden in the wiring. The result: no more battery drains! In short, if you desire a long-term car-shop relationship with expert diagnosticians covering a broad range, from routine to rare, i highly recommend Advanced Auto!
