We opened a second shop in the Mission District! Take your car to either shop and get the same quality service that we have been providing in the Dogpatch since 2002.

While because of the smaller size of our new shop we can't offer a big waiting room, restrooms, and free car washes like at our Dogpatch shop, we are steps from multiple cafes and restaurants, lots of shopping, 2 blocks from BART and 2 doors down from a MUNI stop.

You will see some familiar faces from our Michigan Street location as well as a couple additions to the team to make sure you continue to have the same great experience you have always enjoyed.
See you soon!

Customer Testimonals


Advanced Autowerks is awesome. I am on an around the country road trip with my VW jetta and had some lights pop up on the dash. Jason was quick to plug in his computer and give me the low down. He cleared all the fault codes and told me to drive around a few days and see if the lights come back on. They did and when I returned I was greeted with more prompt service. The only bad problem that came up was my brake lights were out. Toby had some bulbs installed in a jiffy at no charge and aired my tires and greased my squeaky doors. Big thanks to Jason, Toby, Zach, and all the boys at Advanced. If you have a VW or Audi this is the place to go.

I can't speak highly enough about Advanced. Also for being a woman, they are incredibly great and not intimidating. I've had several repairs with my Jetta, and just recently got into an accident. I had my car dropped off there, but found out later when they called that they don't do body work. By the time I had called back, they already had one of their recommended body shops having someone looking at my car. They had done the next steps for me. That's really above and beyond. This also saved me the hassle of having to figure out where to go and how to get my car there.Absolutely, wonderfully 5 stars. I will be coming to them for a long time.

Again advance auto is the best. LADIES listen up if you want honest and taken care of. Then go to advance auto and have Zachary Take care of you. I would call and ask a sensor light has come on and not sure what to do but zach would calm me down and just bring it to the shop and he will have someone look at it. Then take care of the issue at no cost to low cost. In my culture (Hawaiian) that is RESPECT! I'll always take care of these guys as they do to me. Thanks Advanced Autowerks and especially Zach. MAHALO!
