Total professionalism. Not normal for an auto shop to work so hard at customer service but they take their business seriously. Great crew I highly recommend Advanced Automotive.

We have been going there for years. Friendly honest people.

I've been going to Advanced Automotive for over 20 years for my vehicle repairs and maintenance. They have always done a great job and continue to honest and excellent mechanics. My truck was experiencing a very difficult electrical problem. Advanced Automotive stuck with it and figured it out. They did an outstanding job. I don't know what I would have done without them.

Always considerate and always willing to do what they can to help.

After spending time looking at reviews for various companies I decided to take my car to Advanced Automotive.

Every review was excellent and five stars, so how could I go wrong. Well after my first appointment and car return, to say I was disappointed would be an understatement, what happened all these five star reviews and here am I with a car that still doesn’t work and after paying a bill.

A week later I received a text message from Mary at the office asking how I felt now my car was repaired, still waiting was my response. Two days of nothing then someone must have realized what had happened, because after that the whole management and office staff literally descend onto my car, a mistake had been made a customer had slipped through the net and boy did they make it better quick. That’s why they get five star reviews.

Would I use them again, would I recommend them to my friends? Yes I would with glowing praise, not only did they fix the problem but wouldn’t charge for the labor. So after a mistake made by their team they more than made up for it in my eyes.

These people are very kind and helpful. The team is always honest and up front with me, if I need something explained they take the time to do so. I never feel rushed or pressured and every time I get my vehicle back it runs better than it did before. Advanced Automotive is a blessing to our Redding area. Thank you for all your help. God bless you.

So very proud of this hidden little gem, Redding's finest. My son, Cody Morelock has taken his family business to benchmark level of expertise in the industry and customer satisfaction.

It's hard to find an auto shop that is honest. I always come here for a second opinion on a quote I receive.The staff is friendly and go above and beyond.

Prompt service, honest pricing and a wonderful, friendly staff!! Highly recommend their services!!

These folks were great.  I brought my car in for a transmission problem. Being totally honest with me they said they were unable to fix it.  They referred me to a specialty shop.  In the meantime they did an inspection of car and found a minor issue.  It didn't need a repair but left the decision to me.  I opted to have them make the repair.  The work looks good and they had great communication with me.  I will be a returning customer.  Thank you.

Advanced Automotive came to me about 7 years ago on a tip from a friend. Ever since I have entrusted all of my Automotive needs to Advanced Automotive. Integrity, honesty, premium replacement parts, and a welcoming atmosphere from the front office to the garage.

Tim & Cody@Advanced Automotive have been our only mechanics since moving to Redding 21 years ago. They have worked on many different vehicles that we have owned, including an old clunker Chevy Pick up truck that had more problems than any vehicle deserves. Advanced Automotive is the kind of shop everyone wants & deserves to have. I can take my vehicle in, describe what it is doing and just say fix it as I walk away knowing it will be done right! In short, we trust them entirely, and so will you.

Cody is our first choice automotive repair guy every time. He has great advice for proactive and preventative care for your vehicle and genuinely cares enough to make sure he and his team do a quality job. Thanks so much, Cody!

— Google Review

My truck broke down in the middle of no where.  Called repair shops in Redding and my 1990 Diesel Ford P/U was too much for other shops to take on at the last minute to get me back on the road. Finally one shop recommended I try Advanced.  I towed it over 100 miles to  Advanced Auto in Redding and so glad I did!    Great staff.  Kept me informed.  Very reasonable prices for all the work they did. My truck has never run this smooth.  Just towed a trailer up to Washington above Seattle and it performed like a champ.  Thanks Kayla, Mary and Cody.  You have a great team there and your service and repair are excellent.  6 Stars in my book!

— Yelp Review

Cody and the crew are the best we have worked with in Redding without a doubt!! Always easy to get a rig in and out quickly and they never up sell!  With an older fleet of vehicles that need to be maintained, this is our go to shop!!

My first experience with this repair shop..A+ 5 star Customer care and quick , inexpensive , competent auto repair...They gave me a ride home and picked me up..They washed the poor old 98 Subaru and even set the clock in it...$250.00 bucks..Now It shifts better than it did when I bought it in 2002..Still in a state of shock..I was expecting to have to replace the transmission or take it to pick and pull..

— Google Review

Great work and excellent service all around! My boyfriend and I have taken all of are cars in at one point or another for different reasons and they always exceed our expectations. They make taking a vehicle in for service a pleasant experience and will even give you a ride to your front door if you need it! 🙂.

Cody, Tim, and all the crew at Advanced Automotive really do a great job. They are friendly, honest and upfront about your repairs, and do top quality work.

— Google Review

Honest, helpful and great customer service. The most trustworthy automotive repair facility for Diesel pickups in and around Redding.

— Google Review

I took my truck to Advanced Automotive because they were close to the house and it was overheating. I'll continue to make Advanced Automotive my preferred car repair service in the Redding area. They were honest, fair, and reasonably priced. The owner went out of his way to make a timely diagnosis and repair of my vehicle. I can't say enough about the integrity and quality of work demonstrated by Advanced Automotive.

— Google Review

The work this shop does is exceptional. Quality work for a reasonable price! Owner follows up and makes sure everything was done to my satisfaction. Then, I even received a coupon for money off my next visit! 😀👍🏻Advanced Automotive should be the only place you take your vehicle for repairs in the Redding area! Tell them Doug sent you.

— Google Review

Best automotive repair shop in Shasta County. Professional,  fair and honest. I have always received top quality service at a fair price. Give em a chance, you will most likely change where you get your automobile serviced!

This was my first time using Advanced Automotive. I recently moved to the area and my truck had difficulty starting. The techs troubleshot and diagnosed the issue, keeping me in the loop the whole time. Good customer service and fair pricing.

— Google Review

I’ve been taking my Tahoe to them for a couple of years now and I wouldn’t take it anywhere else. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable and offering discounts at every service. I know my vehicles are in great hands here.

— Google Review

Best shop in town. Extraordinary service and honest people. Definitely take the time to get it done right and stand behind their work.

— Google Review

Really appreciate how thoughtful these guys were in the repair of our Suburban. I had come to these guys before for minor repairs/maintenance but never needed any major work done. We were very impressed with the expertise in the diagnosis and repair as well as the considerate customer care that they showed. Despite getting asked all the time who "my mechanic" is, I haven't had one in years. Glad to have someone that I can trust for the future and who I can refer others to.

— Google Review

Very knowledgeable staff, very helpful. This seems like an odd thing to comment on but I am really impressed with their work order/receipt; the amount of detail about what was worked on, what the electrical readings were and the compression readings on the engine cylinders were - I've never gotten that kind of detail from an auto mechanic before.

— Google Review

Best automotive shop around! Fair prices and they go above and beyond when it comes to customer care. Very personable and friendly. Would not take my truck anywhere else!!

— Google Review

When my Explorer had a transmission issue, I knew I needed to get it over to Advanced. These guys are professional in every way! They know what to do and what not to do. What they did was troubleshoot and the amount of experience they have really speeds up the process of diagnosing the problem. Because of this in my situation they were able to fix the transmission without a rebuild or new tranny. This saved me a ton of money! (Thanks guys!) If I had a question ( I always do) I got an answer right away. If you like honesty/ transparency and professional service this is the place.

My husband brought in his car after a recommendation from a friend. We had a great experience. He had many things wrong with his car and they were reasonable and honest. They have made us feel welcome. They have kept in contact with us since he brought in his car to make sure he is happy. Top notch company!! Highly recommend them.

If you ever need maintenance for your car PLEASE go here! I needed so much work done to my car and they were able to help me in every way they could. I will forever be thankful for their kindness, service, and hard work. It is hard to find a car shop that you can truly trust, but this place is completely different. Please bless this awesome business!

We've always had excellent, knowledgeable service here. The staff are friendly, efficient and patient.

We have two older cars and we trust the advice we get from Advanced Automotive as to what to repair and what can be left as is.

AA is our automotive shop of choice!

— Yelp User Review

First let me say that Advance automotive , from the owner to Paul and there entire staff from the shuttle driver, that picked us up to retrieve our truck to the top notch mechanic that fixed it were amazing. They kept us informed about every procedure and cost associate with it though the entire process.


My wife and were on a round trip from Rainer WA to Napa CA and back , on the way back home and our Ford F-350 pulling our travel trailer broke down at the TA truck center. A good Samaritan (Todd) helped as much as he could then recommended us to Advanced Automotive, we had the tuck towed there at about 4:30 in the afternoon , they had us fixed and back on the road within 48 hours . You cant ask for more than that :)


The people in Redding California are very fortunate to have Advanced Automotive and their staff , in there community.

If they were in our community they would be the place I would take all my automotive needs to.


They were a life saver, and we will always be very grateful for there hard work, kindness & honesty.

To advanced automotive: Thank you and we made it home with no issues :)

I took my 2017 Honda Civic that was not blowing cold on the AC to this place and they were able figure out that my ac evaporator core was defective which other people online mentioned that their evap core was also defective. My car AC now is blowing colder than ever thanks to Advanced Automotive. This place seems to be the most professional mechanic shop I’ve ever been to. They even thoroughly checked over pretty much everything on my car as a courtesy and they said my car is doing really good. They also did a courtesy check a week or so later to make sure everything was still functioning on the AC which I thought was very generous of them because they don’t charge you anything to do a courtesy check. I feel that these mechanics at the shop are very trustworthy and do honest work. They are real nice to you there and they treat you really well. I will definitely be taking my car here in the future if I ever have any more problems. I just can’t say enough good about this place. They are absolutely amazing.

My truck overheated while pulling a travel trailer from Washington to Southern California. We were 16 miles from Redding when the truck stopped. We needed to get home quickly for work. We contacted Advanced Automotive. Even though their schedule was full they quickly added us to their schedule, diagnosed the problem ( heater hose fitting assembly broke), ordered the part and go the repair completed within a couple of days. We were only delayed 2 days in our trip. The staff were friendly, clear about the problem and the fix and completed the request on time and budget. They also helped answer some questions I had later after I was back home. I feel like we made new friends in Northern California.

Advanced Automotive in Redding, CA saved us!! Literally, they were incredible! When our air conditioning broke on a trip down from WA to CA, within an hour of calling them, they had us bring our car in and it was fixed the next morning. In addition, we were pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the service was and couldn’t believe they didn’t charge more for a rush job. Wow! We didn’t miss a beat of our trip because of them. We are so grateful and would recommend them hands down before any other dealership!

Advanced Auto was amazing! Im new to the area and didn't have a mechanic and I needed my AC repaired so I took a chance and I'm so glad I did. I ended up having to bring it back 3 times for the AC system (no fault to them though as it was 3 separate issues) and on the 3rd time they even had the rock chip in my windshield repaired at no cost to me!! So they went above and beyond and I will definitely bring my vehicles back to them in the future!

— Google User Review

I've been getting my 2014 4runner serviced here since I moved to the north state in 2019. They're always on point and very good at communicating what issues come up.


There was one time there I came back from picking up my car and as I was pulling into my garage I heard a squeaking noise. I called them and one of the lead mechanics came to my house and diagnosed the issue. In short, they completely made it right without any inconvenience to me.


Definitely not your typical auto shop, you can actually trust their work.

Paul got us in at 6:30am after our brakes went out on I-5, 40 miles out of Redding. We were travelling from WA State to make a scheduled hike up Half Dome and Advanced Automotive got us on the road before noon so that we could make this hike. Paul, S Bird, and K Jeff went up and beyond expectations to give us fast service, good prices and out of town care with their professionalism and immaculate business.

I highly recommend Advanced Automotive. I have been using them as my primary mechanic for four years. They have replaced the seals on my transmission and differential/driveshaft on my Mazda pickup. Also had them repair a leak on my a/c . When my check engine light came on they replaced the coil pack. Advanced Automotive warranty’s all there work. The owners and staff are very nice and offer great customer service.

Oil change and diagnose many systems. No other repairs were done due to the projected cost, far more than the value of the car, (this is a 24 year old car) but now I have a comprehensive list to provide to the next owners.

A big thanks to the Advanced Auto team. We came out on a Wildland deployment and they were able to work us into their schedule and get us taken care of. They provided an extremely high quality of service. If you are in or near Redding I highly recommend taking your vehicle there. 5/5

I had my older truck air conditioning repaired and a leak from our intake manifold on our car repaired. Advanced Automotive did excellent work and got it done quickly! The biggest surprise was when they finished the manifold gaskets replacement, they informed me that their work was covered by a nationwide 3-year, 36,000 mile warranty!!! They are also extremely friendly, thorough, and reasonably priced. They even charged me less than the estimate! I would highly recommend them!!!!!

My wife and I were on a trip to Oregon from soCal and my F-250 6.7 diesel truck broke down on the hottest day in the hottest city in CA. I had the truck towed to Advanced Automotive in Redding Ca. Cody and his team diagnosed the problem, repaired it with an accurate estimate and got us back on the road again. While repairs were being made out kept us apprised of the progress that was billing made. We recommend this business! Honest and caring people. Thanks Cody!

— Yelp User Review

true, honest workers and great quality service. being a young female, i find we are often taken advantage of when going to automotive centers and they just did just the opposite of that!! they were very open and great at explaining what was going on with my car and the processes they were going to take to fix it. there was even a miscommunication between the technician and someone else where they used extra fluid that would've costed me +350 more than i was paying and they waived the fee because of the miscommunication. wouldn't take my car anywhere else now!! when i went to pick up my car, they gave it a full wash and a super detailed receipt of all work done. 3 year or 36,000 mile warranty on all work done!


also offers 10% off to AAA members which is an added perk

Advanced automotive no judging, Christian and all together kind. The front desk comedy with the owner and general Christmas spirit from the mechanic to the owner was a relief and an answered prayer.

Not only are the technicians and owners knowledgeable but they're honest. I've taken my Dodge Cummins there several times and have always been extremely pleased with the work that was done and the service I received.

Thanks for doing a great job and getting me back on the road in a timely manner.

Absolutely loved our experience so the Advanced Automotive from start to finish. Our check engine light started flashing at us on our way down to Southern California just as we were leaving Redding and we could hear knocking from the engine. Not a great way to start a trip! After an overnight at a nearby hotel, we called Advanced Automotive around 6:30 am, thanks to some great reviews and an early opening time. I couldn’t be happier that we did. We brought in the car and Paul talked us through our options and made it super easy to understand what they would be doing to diagnose the car and how much it would cost. They even provided a shuttle to the car rental office, which was a fair distance away! After diagnosing the vehicle, Paul reached out and explained that the issue was something that would require the Dealership to look into, even adding that in his experience it was an issue they would be covered under warranty, which they did. Everyone at Advanced Automotive was amazing, kind, and communicated perfectly. Would 100% recommend, and if we lived closer, would bring all our cars there!

I brought my 2004 Chevy 2500 turbodiesel truck in for engine light on. For diagnostics. EGR valve was reported on the computer. Another shop (in Chico) reported THAT and the Turbo needing replacing. For 7 grand.

I sought a 2nd opinion on the recommendation of a friend who had much faith in Advanced Auto. After 2+ days of diagnostics and road testing, as well as taking it in to be smogged at A-1 on Bechelli. It passed. It was determined to Not need these repairs at this time. Much Thanx to Advanced Automotive.
