The Auto & Tire Doctor

When it comes to mechanics, auto repair shops and all things under the hood technicians have a pretty skeptical rep. The Auto & Tire Doctor are few whom hold themselves and their business to nothing short of excellence. From Truckee, I was recently in the PNW for 4 years. Intercity competition raised the standard of service, but not customer service...I couldn't be more stoked to have honest men working my old stag, and supporting local biz that support their local communities.

Really friendly staff! It was only 45$ for an oil change! Also, there is a comfortable lounge area to relax at while your car is getting worked on which is a mega plus when your getting an oil change and have to hang out.

There was a piece of plastic hanging off the bottom of my car during the middle of my work day and sounded awful when I drove. I thought something was really wrong. I was worried that I was going to have to call it a day. They quickly checked my car, removed the piece, and sent me on my way without any charge. I appreciate the service and will return.

Based on today's experience, I couldn't have been happier. Went in, without an appointment, to get my tires balanced. (Was afraid there may be something else wrong with my front end). Within 30 minutes, they called my name and my truck was done. They were very friendly, and I'm also glad the said there wasn't any bad new in the end Thank you!

I went here on the recommendation of my girlfriend's aunt, who is friends with the family who owns it, so I went into this experience completely saturated with trust for this establishment, which I realized was incredibly misplaced. Before driving my girlfriend's 13 year old Camry back across the U.S. to Virginia, I took it to auto doctor to make sure everything was okay to make the journey. They told me it would take 6 hours, but called me back 30 minutes after I left to say it was done and that everything was safe to make it back across the continental U.S. Needless to say, they didn't check shit except change the oil, because it wasn't until West Virginia that I realized something was massively wrong with the car. I went to a mechanic there and they discovered my back right wheel was on held on by one stud and one bolt- meaning that 4 studs and 4 bolts were missing from that wheel and had been since Truckee. Auto doctor never even checked my wheels even though they were entirely aware of the journey I was attempting to make and the shape of the car. They sent me on the road in a car that would have killed me if I wasn't as in tune with my own intuition as I am. It's a miracle that thing didn't fly off and send me spinning uncontrollably to my inevitable death-by-tractor-trailer-running-over-me. Thanks, auto doctor, for your negligence and utter lack of concern for your patrons safety. I recommend pretty much ANYWHERE in Reno as opposed to any auto establishment in Truckee. You might actually find decent people who care about your wellbeing and the safety of your vehicle down there, because that is not a quality I've found in Truckee.

I stopped in on a Friday morning with my trailer that needed it's brakes adjusted before heading over the mountain into the Bay Area. Got there before they opened and the woman inside was very courteous and said the crew would be in soon. When John arrived he said they could help me out as soon as Justin arrived. Shortly after 8am he arrived and I backed my trailer into his work area. Within 15 minutes or so he was done adjusting my trailer brakes! Went inside to see how much I owed them and all John said was "just have a nice day"! I said "really, no charge", you guys are solid and thank you very much! These guys are the best and I'll continue to bring my business to them when I'm in Truckee for sure. Thanks John and Justin!

I love this place! Subaru specialists!!! They are an amazing group of people and they are super friendly. They always take care of me with lots of great professionalism. My Subaru loves getting worked on by them because they treat her right! I am not one for appointments and they have a cool drop off system. This is my favorite because then they can start working on it first thing in the am and I don't have to wake up early to drop it off. I wish I could bring these guys everywhere I go. Tahoe love!

These guys are fabulous! I would give 6 stars if I could. Our Hummer has had issues twice while vacationing in Tahoe. A catalytic converter went out last year and this year it was a water pump. No one likes unexpected car problems on vacation but these guys are fast and efficient. We did not have a ride back to our cabin after dropping it off and the gal who worked there said she would drive us back. That wasn't even the best part . While driving us back we mentioned the temp gauge started going up while we were heading to the Lake that morning . she literally pulled over, made a call, circled back to the shop and jumped out and gave us her keys and let us take it until our was ready! Saved our next couple days. Again their customer service is above par!

Our diesel truck broke down on I-80 on Friday afternoon. When we phoned to inquire about repair, they stated confidently that they could fix the problem. We were told when the truck was towed in that they would have someone look at the truck on Saturday to begin diagnosing the problem. We went to the shop on Monday morning hoping to see them working on the vehicle. We were told they were still diagnosing the problem and that they would call us in 2 hours. After 3 1/2 hours, we stopped by the shop again only to be told that they were waiting to hear back from a shop in Auburn that worked on Diesel engines for a second opinion. Second opinions are great, but our confidence level was now at a zero plus the fact that promised phone updates never happened. Long story short...we towed our vehicle to a shop in Sparks where they immediately recognized the problem and began the repair. I do not recommend this shop on the basis of their customer service.

The Employees at the Auto Doctor are Great, they go above and beyond. They are Courteous, kind and very helpful, and make sure you get the best care rather you are a local or from out of town. When my car broke down on Donner pass and I got towed there I never expected the excellent service I received. If you break down on Donner Pass or anywhere in the area or just need a good check up on your car I whole heartedly recommend the Auto Doctor. A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THE STAFF! Patricia Cummins

Thank you for the wonderful review, Patricia! We are so glad you enjoyed our service.
