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!

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!

Reflections Glass Tinting Inc.
Our experience with Reflections Glass Tinting, Inc of Livermore was a very positive one. They proved themselves to be experts in the field of Commercial Glass Tinting. The owner, Diana, personally assisted me in finding the perfect 3M window film to reduce the excess heat and glare in our building. We found their prices to be competitive and their service exceptional. The installer was professional, neat and punctual.I was also impressed by the wide selection of decorative window film that Reflections Glass Tinting carries. What a great product! These privacy films are beautiful and are far more affordable and easy to clean than traditional sandblasted glass. So, if you are searching for the best window tinters in the Bay Area for your office or building, I recommend that you call Reflections Glass Tinting Inc.

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 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!

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!

Just ask to speak to Tony.My family has been bringing our cars (5) for oil changes, brake jobs, battery changes, tire rotations, and tune ups for several years.Tony at Livermore Automotive Center knows how to treat his customers. My only issue is I wish he had another shop in Tracy where I live!

Allen's Automotive & Towing Inc
I am a single parent and broke down on the freeway late at night. Allens came quickly to tow my car. The driver was really nice and helped me get my infant daughter in and out of the tow truck. Once I got her inside my house, he helped me get belongings out of my car and carried them to my door. My car was then towed to Allens automotive to be repaired. My car was done early afternoon of the next day!

I found Advanced Auto on the AAA website & am so glad I did. They are professional, friendly, & change a reasonable rate for their services. I am a woman and I have complete confidence that this shop is very honest. They have done several major repairs to my vehicle & all of the work they have done is top notch. I also get the AAA certificate shop discount which h is helpful.

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.
Tips & Advices
Yes. New tires purchased online can often be priced lower than ones at a tire dealership. Buyers can often avoid state sales taxes and locate hard-to-find tire styles and sizes, but will still have to locate a local tire installer and pay sometimes high shipping costs.
The average cost of a set of new tires is $637, with a range of between $525-$725. In addition, installation includes mounting and balancing, alignment, and disposal of old tires.
The vehicle is raised and the old wheels are removed, then the old tires are removed from the wheels. The lug nuts, wheels, and valve stems are inspected and replaced as needed. The new tires are mounted and sealed, then inflated and balanced. The wheels are then replaced on the car. The average installation takes approximately 45 minutes.
Agencies such as the Tire Industry Association promotes tire safety through advocacy and education to the industry including: manufacture, sales, repair, service and recycling. Seek a full-service tire dealer who carries a wide variety of tire types and brands and asks about the type of driving you normally do.
  • Move your car to a safe location.
  • Turn on your car’s safety lights, apply the parking brakes and remove the hubcap if there is one.
  • Loosen the lug nuts with a lug wrench (but do not remove them), raise the vehicle with a jack and then fully remove the lugnuts.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare tire.
  • Tighten the lug nuts by hand, lower the car and then tighten them fully with the lug wrench.
