The certified technicians at Advanced Automotive lead double lives. Before performing extended repairs or maintenance on cars, they act as chauffeurs to the vehicles’ owners. The techs shuttle customers wherever they’d like to go—within reason, of course—including The Shoppes at Farmington Valley or a mani-pedi appointment at a local salon. This accommodating spirit, along with a commitment to fair and honest service, has kept the shop in business for more than 15 years.
In the office, Big Ron Dombrowski—Ron 2—runs the show, and his son and namesake—Ron 3—serves as the shop's foreman. With diverse skills that run the full gamut of foreign and domestic autos, team members tackle services such as repairing loose breaks, worn belts, or an uneven suspension, and they certify their hard work with a 24-month, 24,000-mile warranty on all parts and labor. Customers without errands to run can opt to wait in the onsite lounge, sipping complimentary coffee and using the free WiFi to buy a windshield-wiper metronome for their arrhythmic auto.
