I've been coming to this shop for about 4 years off and on and have only ever been satisfied with their friendly service and knowledgeable staff. Tom was always friendly and very accommodating when my financial situation wasn't always easy to work with. Now that he is retired, I see that same level of service is a factor shared among the rest of the staff as well. Though my location has changed multiple times in this time frame, advanced auto is the only shop I go to for all my major services and maintenance needs.This is a shop that I trust with my car and would recommend to anyone. Thanks Advanced Auto!

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!

David and his team are top notch. Took them a very special repair of my AC system. Brought in a specialty part not typically replaced by other shops. Dave charged me just a fraction of an hour above a regular AC service and leak check. Now my system will freeze a polar bear! This saved me hundreds in not replacing my compressor.They also performed a long overdue timing belt replacement with same day service. Great job!

I was having car troubles and could not find anyone who was available or cared to have me come in. I found Advanced Auto and was very pleased with the gentlemen. He checked my car for free and called that same day to tell me my car problems. He and his staff are very friendly and helpful. I will continue to take my car here and know that I will be treated in a respectful, friendly manner and receive great service. Keep it up gentlemen!

I found this repair shop through AAA and I gave them a try because they were certified, gave a 10% discount to AAA members, and it was close to my home. I needed the rear end of my Dodge pickup re-built and these guys did a great job! They were very professional, friendly and thorough. They were prompt with the diagnosis and gave me a reasonable estimate. Even though they predicted it to be a three day job they were done within a day and a half and the truck has run perfectly since. I will certainly use this shop in the future if I have any problems with my truck.

Towed in with a breakdown at 9:00 back on the road by 4:00. Tom kept me informed during the day and even dropped me off at work! I'm really picky about my auto mechanics but I will go back for non- emergency service because they treated me right.

I experienced car troubles while in town for a funeral - suffice it to say I was not pleased! I looked up local car repair shops, and luckily Advanced Auto had good reviews - and now I know why! I dropped my car off and the gentleman was so friendly! He understood that I didn't live in town and was feeling distressed. So he sourced the part needed, and worked on my car immediately, giving me frequent updates. Within a few hours I was on my way home with a great understanding of what went wrong (he even showed me the broken part and gave me a mini auto shop lesson) ... as well as a discount :) It's not easy to give a car repair place 5 stars since it's not a venue I WANT to spend my money - but they deserve it!

My dad found this place in an ad we got in the mail. We saw they were AAA certified as well as a few other reputable places. My dad gave them a call this morning and they said they would be able to fit us in right away. We dropped my car off at about 9 and they said they would take a look at everything FREE of charge and call us back soon. We got a call from them about 30 minutes later with the problem, estimate, and the news that they would be able to fix it and have it ready by the end of the day. Of course it was pricey, but what car work isn't??? Not many places will take a look at it with no charge so that was a plus. Tom helped us, he was extremely knowledgeable and never tried to up sale us, which was great!!!!!I would most definitely recommend this place to a friend.

I came here not too long ago due to a bad wheel bearing.As always, the service and work done to the car was top notch. Even though I don't even live in livermore, I know this shop takes pride in their work so i don't mind driving a little further to get quality work done.I would recommend this place to a friend.
