The Auto & Tire Doctor

Auto & Tire Doctor was recommended by AAA when we need a tow from the Blue Canyon area to Truckee. Our Ford Expedition was losing power going up the mountain and when we turned off the engine, it would not start again. The guys at Auto & Tire Doctor were able to run a diagnostic the next day. The diagnostic did not reveal any problems. We picked up the Expedition and drove it to Tahoe Vista. Turned off the car, restarted it and the red light came on again. We brought it back and their Ford expert looked at it again, ran another diagnostic and communicated directly with Ford to explore all possible issues. Again, nothing was found. We were offered the option of digging deeper and removing and reinstalling components of the system, but that could have yielded the same results. Because the guys couldn't find anything, they said they couldn't recommend any work. So honest! We couldn't have been happier with the way we were treated. We'll definetely be back if we have any automotive needs in the Truckee/Tahoe area.

I have been taking my vehicles to The Auto Doctor for 20 years and have had supreme service with every visit! John is the personality behind this bussiness and he always treats me like I was part of his family. They are very proffessional and trustworthy. I would go know where else. I have 4 trucks starting at a1995 dodge diesal to a 2012 toyota and he has technicians that can handle them all. The Auto and Tire Doctor are complete professionals. It seems most auto repair shops get a bad rap. Customers thinking they have been ripped off, charged for repairs that were not needed, labor rates to high. These technicians are ASE certified and are highly trained in thier field to do some thing we obviously cant do. At the Auto Doctor , I have found when they diagnose my vehicle they have my best interest at heart and are looking to make my vehicle run at its optimal best. It is always my final say up to the repairs I have them complete and when. They never force anything on me. So I just hate to see people on here making senseless remarks about a shop that has been in business for over 30 years that has never treated me poorly. John Lamoreux and your crew you ROCK! Thank you Fred and Jani Ahlvers

Such a wonderful experience with these guys!!! I'm from Sacramento and my car broke down on the 4th of July at 5pm =/. It was towed to the Auto & Tire Doctor and before 8am the next morning I had a phone call from Greg to tell me they were going to take a look at it and get back to me ASAP. At 9:30am I got a call back with a diagnosis and before 1pm they were done with the work. Since I didn't have a car the OWNER, John, drove downtown and picked us up! What a remarkable experience. I would certainly have all my work done at this shop if I were local and because it's so hard to find reliable, fair mechanics I'd even consider driving up the hill to have them do work on my car again - no joke. Greg was fair and clear about what and when I could expect to know more and the work was done quickly and with such quality that what could have been a nightmare actually turned into a fantastic extra day laying on the docks at Donner Lake!Definitely take your vehicles here without a doubt.

I had a positive experience with the Auto Doctor. It's too soon to tell how the repair will hold up over time, but the initial experience was a good one. We came into the Truckee area on 7/1. Midday on 7/2, my Trooper dies completely on 267, with symptoms that appear to be a fuel problem.. Based on a recommendation from a local, I took it to the Auto Doctor. The squoze me in, despite appearing pretty fully booked. I got a call early the next day (7/3) telling me it was my fuel pump unit, and they had a line on a replacement. The price seemed high ($500) for the part, but I called a trusted mechanic back in the Santa Cruz area, and they confirmed that that was the going rate. In any case, the car was buttoned back up by 3 PM on 7/3, and we didn't have to keep the rental across the 4th of July break. They did right by us.Unclear how we'd use the warranty if the part breaks 45 days from now...

These guys are awesome. I recently called them to get a second opinion about an axle that needed to be replaced. They literally did the work for HALF the price Meineke in Reno quoted me. They charge you by how long it actually takes them to do the work, not by how long the "mechanics book" tells them it should take. These guys are totally honest and really have a way of making you feel like family. They seem like they really try to work with you on prices too. If you get any sort of serious work done there they always give you car wash coupons and coupons for significant deals on future services like oil changes or tire rotations. They are really fast getting things done and always keep you up-to-date on what's going on with your vehicle. Great small town business and really uphold their good reputation. I will be a lifelong customer here for ALL my car work...thanks guys!!!

These guys saved me hundreds of dollars when Truckee Auto and Exhaust attempted to rip me off. Very honest, relaxing waiting room, overall an excellent experience. They saved my trip! Thanks, Auto Doctor.

The Auto and Tire Doctor in Truckee is affordable, honest and reliable! Every time I go in, they greet me by my first name and everyone is so polite. There's nice couches and a clean, relaxing waiting area for customers to hang out in while they wait for their car to be serviced and the whole facility is super clean. I think honesty is so important when it comes to your vehicle - for me personally, my car is the only thing I really own and it's a comfort to know these guys will take really good care of it.

We came up to Truckee Friday afternoon. As we were about to head out at noon on Saturday, I noticed that one tire was nearly flat. I googled around and found out that the Auto-Tire Doctor was opened until 2pm. After a quick call, and inflating the tire, I took my car up there. They took care of the tire flat in less than 20mns, and priced the tire repair fairly. Staff was friendly.

A solid 4-1/2. I'm from Silicon Valley and took my Subaru for a ride up to Tahoe in May 2011 (better late than never to write a review). The check engine light came on on the way up. My dilemma- do I take a chance and wait till I get back home to get it fixed, or do it now? Well with a 2 year old traveling with us, my hubby and I decided to find a reliable auto shop, mainly because we wanted to drive on back roads to get to fishing spots and did not want to get stuck in the wilderness. We used AAA to find recommendations for approved auto shops and The Auto Doctor was listed. I liked that the establishment was a Subaru specialist. They had a nice comfortable waiting area, with free video games on a table top console to pass the time. Gave us an accurate estimate, and recommended some additional work which we got done there on the spot. 4 hours later, we had our car back. I would use them again if I was in the neighborhood. We passed the time by getting lunch at a nearby restaurant and playing free video games on the table top console. Bathrooms are clean, TV available and their pet dog entertained my kid for awhile. My daughter was busy playing with toys and puzzles they had available. A little pricey in my opinion (thus minus the 1/2 point), but they did a great job and we got back home safely and in one piece!
