What Our Clients Say:

Great visit!
5 star review by Judy S.
We LOVE the Auto Doctor. The staff is so friendly and reliable. They are transparent with their information and recommendations. They always talk us through options, make suggestions and answer any silly questions I have. Plus, time and again, their rates beat any quote I try to pull from Reno. Thanks for taking such good care of us, Auto Doctor!

I was extremely happy and pleased with my experience with your service. Due to the fire at South Lake Tahoe, I had to evacuate from my home.’ I have told the mgt here at motel and the friends here how nice and reliable your tire shop is.
