I was stranded in Truckee with my grandson and his car. We were driving down from Idaho when we got a flat. Turned out that all 4 of his tires were bad. AAA recommended The Auto and Tire Doctor. John the owner and his staff Cindy & Gabby were very nice & helpful. They had to search the planet to find the tires...but they did it! They even let us borrow their truck to go into town. Super nice people! Thanks!

This shop is the BEST car shop I have ever been to. I had recently purchased a Salvage titled car in South Lake Tahoe and had to go through all the extra steps but no mechanic in South Shore would see me and my car. I called these guys and their kindness came right through the phone. They said I could come see them that day and not to worry. I made the trek to Truckee where they did the light and break check along with a once-over and oil change. I had to go back today to finish up my inspection for Cali's Salvage test and they took great care of me. Kindness all the way through along with great service and work. By far the BEST PLACE I have taken my cars. Will be back for my oil change in a few months and cannot wait to see the shop dog and everyone's smiling faces. Thank you all so much.

Wow! My car broke on Donner Pass! Figure the odds. Why break up here in the winter? In the rain? Well AAA sent a good wrecker and recommended a terrific auto shop. They were extremely fast and professional. Reasonable with price. John Lamoreux, the owner, picked me up at my hotel and shuttled me back to shop. Staff is very pleasant and John gave me a great recommendation for a scenic drive home and a great restaurant I would never have found on my own.
The Beacon near S. Lake Tahoe. For breaking down experience turned out well. Big thanks to John and his staff. Kevin Morris

Thanks for the kudos Kevin. It was our pleasure!

This place is horrible. They lied numerous times and took 7 weeks to fix my car. Allen hung up on me twice. I still don't have my car. Given the experience so far I am sure there will be more issues once I get it. Our insurance …More

Took my truck in because my gears weren't shifting. They called me the next day to tell me I needed a whole new clutch, which I thought was strange since I just had it replaced a few years ago. They quoted my $1300. I couldn't afford that so I had it towed to a different place for a second opinion. The new place told me my clutch was fine only my clutch plate broke and it would be $300. That's a thousand dollar difference, I couldn't believe it. The tire doctor also said I had a transmission leak and had to replace it, the new place told me nope its in great condition. In all at the second place I spent $500 cause they also did I tune up. I don't trust the auto and tire doctor they are dishonest and not to be trusted. If you want to be treated fairly and not taken advantage of stay away. And whats up with the guy at the front Alan you flirts and blows kisses at all the women. I felt very uncomfortable.

We picked up a nail in our tire and we called on a Saturday to see if they could plug it. They were able to squeeze us in before their next appointment. They literally turned the car around within 15 minutes and when we pulled out our wallet, they told us it's on them. These guys are the best--highly recommend!

Terrible terrible terrible. Do not go here. 7 weeks without my car and lied to multiple times.

I went in for a smog test and two hours later I found out that they are not familiar with the new software on the smog tester. This is it for me- never going back.
