"I had a wheel bearing issue. They did a fantastic job getting my Silverado in and repairing the issue. Advanced Automotive had a very busy schedule but worked me in. I was able to wait on the vehicle . The tech was very knowledgeable and completed the work in about 30 minutes. Very reasonable price. Advanced Automotive Boliver has earned a loyal customer."

"I was on a recent trip to Missouri when the transmission of my 2000 Ford Focus SE completely self-destructed on me when I was a good 700-800 miles away from home. These guys gave me a reasonable quote, even compared to quotes from the guys I know in Houston, TX. They were able to finish the job promptly and comissioned the transmission properly (worked better and smoother than it did out of the factory when it was new). Thanks, guys."

"Was a few hundred miles from home when a red triangular warning sensor went off. Went to a few places in Bolivar that weren't able to diagnose the problem, who then sent me there. Advanced Automotive diagnosed it, explained that it was just the oil change alert, which is fine since I use synthetic. They reset it and charged nothing. Thank you for all the service! As an aside, I use synthetic and know the indicator, the issue was that I had been on a long driving trip. The Toyota Camry has a really specific series of steps you have to go to in order to remove the oil change maintenance light, and I have the procedure with all the steps written down at home. The light when on early in the trip, and I had driven over 500 miles on the trip before the red warning light went on. Usually, I address that the oil change warning sensor quickly when at home, so I never get a red warning light from it. Since I was on the road for several hundred miles after the indicator, I guess the computer thought the situation had become more dire (understandable if not synthetic oil is used, you don't want to go tons of miles on oil that isn't designed for it) and then later resorted to a red warning light. I do wish that Toyota Camry would make it more easy to manually override their warning lights at times. Since I did not have the specific procedure with me, I didn't address it sooner... so it all makes sense now, in hindsight. Regardless, I do appreciate all their excellent and timely service, and the fact that they wouldn't even accept any money really won me over. Accurate, and what a class act. THANK YOU!!!"

"We've been a customer of theirs for a few years now and I'm really pleased with the service. I definitely feel like they're fair and I've never felt "ripped off' which is hard issue to deal with when it comes to auto mechanics. I would definitely recommend them."

"I was in Bolivar to purchase a used vehicle and I ended up at Advanced in order to get it mechanically inspected. Tony (owner) and his other mechanics were very friendly and not condescending about the vehicle's issues. Everything was clearly explained. While waiting for it, I noticed that the posted prices on standard services were extremely reasonable, the office and the shop were very clean, and that the staff took care not to dirty up any car's interior. If you are in that area, use them!"
