BATTERIES

If your car won't start it could be a dead battery. The auto part professionals at Advantec Auto Repair can test your battery and install a new one if needed.

Battery Testing
Battery testing is the process of examining an automotive battery to gather useful information about individual cells and the battery. Although battery testing is fairly simple and straightforward (and only requires a few basic tools), the test results are not straightforward. For this reason, you should let an experienced auto parts professional handle your battery testing. For all your battery testing needs, call 619-248-9519 or visit Advantec Auto Repair today.

Battery Installation
Are you aware that an automotive battery needs to be replaced every few years? This is true no matter how often you take your car for maintenance. When the time for battery replacement comes around, most car owners don't have the time and necessary experience to install a new battery. At Advantec Auto Repair, we will help you determine whether your car needs a new battery or not. If the battery is dead and can't be recharged, we will help you with new battery installation. Call 619-248-9519 or visit us today.

Battery Recycling
Since automotive batteries contain a number of toxic chemicals and heavy metals, dead batteries should be recycled to save the environment from pollution. Battery recycling is the process aimed at reducing the number of batteries being disposed of as solid waste. The process reduces the risks of soil contamination and water pollution. Advantec Auto Repair provides a battery recycling service. Visit our auto parts store in San Diego, CA 92116 or call us today.


What Our Customers Are Saying

Very helpful staff. Shows you the problems and then always lets you know what he thinks should be fixed and what's not worth the money. So glad I found this mechanic!


-Erin B.

The owner let me know upfront what the "service your engine" light meant but willing to replace just one of the sensors to see if that being bad made the other one read bad and so far the light hasn't come back on...that saved me $120. He also changed my oil for a reasonable price and rotated my tires for free. I'm pretty sure this shop is a keeper.


-Martine M.

I have been taking my car here for years. Even after moving to north county, this is the only place I will take my cars. Why? Fair prices and trustworthy service. Many times - they have told me that I don't need an item fixed that I think is broken. I wish I could give them more stars.


-Stephen C.

I've been going here for years. My dad works on cars and he's spoken with them about what they work on, always impressed and they know what they're doing. They will never try to rip you off. I feel very lucky to have found a mechanic I can actually trust.


-Rebecca K.

So glad Bob is in charge of this shop. I'm a long time customer from when he was in Kearny Mesa and it's great having him closer to where I live. They have great technicians/mechanics, good prices, and are very customer friendly.


-Phillip L.

Bob from Kearney Mesa automotive bought this and has moved here...I have had Bob Creager and his employees work on my cars for the last 10 years. Honest, fast, affordable. The best. I'm completely comfortable as a woman with no car knowledge having my car worked on knowing no one is "selling" me something I don't need.


-Alison T.

On the advice of Janine Harty, I took my new (new to me) 2004 Chevrolet Conversion Van to Advantec today, as Smitty's Service was booked. In and out same day, all work done as promised, friendly service, reasonable prices. Very pleased.


-Mike C.

They're very honest and charge a fair price. You can drop by and easily have your oil changed and have a coffee next door.


-James K.

I was not disappointed with Advantec. Took my car in for brakes and rotors and a possible motor belt on their last Saturday they were open. Their guys took a close listen and said the belt wasn't the problem-- it was the alternator going bad. They pointed out the failing parts and gave me an approximate time table (which was depressing because of my work schedule). They gave me a quote and said they'd get started. I was expecting it to be done on Monday, but they called at noon that day to say it was finished. Their quote was within a few hundred of the final price, including a courtesy discount. They were fast and polite -- definitely recommend them.
