The Auto & Tire Doctor
Note: The Auto and Tire Doctor is located at 12000 Pioneer Way in Truckee. The guy that took over their old location on West River street calls his business "Doctor Auto". What a cheeseball. I love these guys! I'm the type of gal that doesn't know a carburetor from a carbuncle and given my tendency to drive cars into the ground, I'm at the Auto Doctor a lot. I've given them many, many opportunities to empty my wallet but they don't. They are honest. Sure there might be cheaper places for car repairs like the retired guy down the street that does tune-ups for a six-pack, but I trust their work more. Their wait room is large, clean with nice restrooms and a large flat screen TV. And Wifi. The selection of magazines tends to be of the motor sports/golf kind. There's also tables and benches outside. They like to have your car all day if you are doing more than a tune-up, so it's good to make arrangements for transportation. But if you're short on time, say your thingamoniter just blew up and you absolutely have to be in the bay area by 6pm, they will do their best to get you back on de road in a short amount of time. Unless you pull attitude, then they will refer you to the retired guy at the end of the street. Ha! Good luck with that!
