My car broke down on 580 East heading towards the 5 South during rush hour on a Friday afternoon. The only thing good that came out of it was AAA towed me to Dave's shop. When we called Dave, he let me know he may not be able to get the parts in time to have my car ready for the weekend, and really couldn't promise anything till he saw it. As it turned out the part needed couldn't get there until Monday morning. I was far from home and my only alternative was to stay in a hotel, and maybe rent a car the next day for the weekend. Dave really went above and beyond by driving me around Livermore at 5PM to help me find a decent place to stay. He gave me an estimate for the repairs and the car was ready as he said it would be on Monday morning. I had a lot of stuff in my car, including my favorite house plant, and Dave actually watered it for me! The final price for the completed job was slightly less than the original estimate which was a relief. Thank you, Dave, for making such a disaster on the road a little easier to take! My car made it fine during the 500 mile drive home and when I got back I followed Dave's recommendations on what should be done next. I brought his recommendations to a local mechanic here and it is just running great. Thanks again, Dave. Hopefully I won't break down again in Livermore but if I do, I know you'll take good care of me and my car!

My experience here was great, I was helped by a gentleman by the name Chris, I was given what I feel to be a fair estimate for future service and was very comfortable asking questions. I did not detect a pushy up sale feeling you often get when you are visiting an auto mechanic. That makes all the difference in the world when it comes to making a choice who I will allow to work on my vehicle. The shop was clean and was full of repairs... another great sign as I assume others share my experience.

Advanced Auto was recommended to us by a friend, and we couldn't be happier with their service. We had front and back breaks replaced on our 2004 Tahoe plus some other work at a fraction of what it would have cost us at the dealership. It is a great feeling to know that we have a mechanic who is honest and trustworthy.

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!
