We consider ourselves the Primary Care Provider for your vehicles, and we take a proactive, collaborative approach in the service we provide. We want you and your family safe on the road, not stuck on the side of it.
We'll get to know your car inside and out and advise you on what services you need right away, and what can wait. If unexpected problems are discovered, we will bring all of your options to the table, keeping in mind your short and long term plans for your car. We'll never advise you to keep a car you shouldn't.
You'll have the pleasure of working with Eric, who began his career in the automotive field in 2010. He had previously worked for Nissan and Subaru, and he has excellent skills working with all foreign and domestic makes and models. During his training Eric won the Ford AAA Auto Skills Award for Vermont and brought home 11th place (out of 50!) at the National competition in Detroit. Eric and his wife love raising their daughter in New Hampshire. As an avid outdoors-man, he is often in the woods and fishing our area lakes every season.
You'll enjoy meeting and working with Jim, who has over 25 years in the industry. He brings his expertise as a Toyota and ASE Master Certificated technician, and he has also worked on all vehicle makes and models. His experience and easy-going personality is a great fit for the shop. Jim is also an outdoor enthusiast (we are sensing a theme here!), and he and his wife are also empty-nesters, enjoying all life here has to offer.

About Brian and Dianne
Owner Brian Kane, ASE Master Certified Technician, has worked in the automotive industry since 1988, and after more than a decade of management positions Brian decided it was time to bring his business concept and ideals to his community. The building went up in 2001 and doors of Auto Advisors opened in 2002.
As a family man and veteran of the US Army, Brian knows the importance of honesty and integrity; traits he brings to the shop every day. He and his technicians are fully committed to servicing your vehicles with those same values.
Outside the doors of Auto Advisors, Brian stays busy with his family, and during those rare free moments you are likely to find him fly-fishing on the river, ice fishing on our beautiful lakes, hiking through the woods, or perfecting his golf swing. The great outdoors is his home away from home.
Brian's wife, Dianne, runs the front end of the shop and also loves all that New Hampshire has to offer. When she's not at work, you'll find her out on the river with Brian, walking our lovely area roads, tending to her gardens, and taking the dogs out for country drives. She also writes for the InterTown Record as the local Neighborhood Correspondent.
With their four kids launched into to the world, Dianne and Brian take care of their two Golden Doodles, Marcus and Murphy; and their "grand-dog" Tootsie (she's a Chi-Poo) has taken up permanent residence with them. They seem take the edge off of the empty nest syndrome and keep them plenty busy with lots of "tails" to tell. Tootsie often comes to the shop, and even though she has some anxiety around people she just loves coming to work and overseeing the front office from her perch on the counter!
Brian and Dianne were featured in the local "Lake Sunapee Neighbors" Magazine in March of 2018. You can see their story in the magazine images below.
