All drivers dread the sound of a sputtering engine, which signals that either the car is breaking down or the wedding cake baking on the engine block is ruined. Keep internally combusting appliances purring with today's Groupon to Advanced Automotive in Canton. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get a regular oil change (up to a $44.95 value).
- For $30, you get a synthetic-oil change(up to a $74.95 value).
The certified technicians at Advanced Automotive have been servicing Canton’s automotive community for more than 15 years. During the oil change, a qualified maintenance professional will replace up to six quarts of regular or synthetic oil for any foreign or domestic car, truck, or SUV. All oil changes include a new oil filter and a complimentary 72-point inspection, helping hunt down everything from cosmetic problems to the hidden mechanical issues that can seriously compromise a car's self-esteem. Services usually last 30–90 minutes, during which guests can take advantage of Advanced Automotive's complimentary shuttle service to The Shoppes at Farmington Valley. Owners who prefer to wait in the on-site lounge can enjoy complimentary coffee and use the free WiFi to buy their auto a birthday present.
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 since 2009.
In the office, Deb Dombrowski runs the show, and her son, Ron, serves as head tech. With diverse skills that run the full gamut of foreign and domestic autos, team members tackle services such as diesel truck repair & maintenance, repairing brakes, 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.
