The Auto & Tire Doctor

I had a great experience with the Auto Doctors. On my way up to Truckee from Los Angeles, my engine light came on. I was so sure it was my transmission and even told them I had a feeling it was. As a courtesy, they offered to check why my engine light was on for free (as they are also legally obligated to anyway). By the way, they have a cozy waiting room with Wifi that made the waiting less painful. After about half an hour, they said I was free to go. The mechanic there told me that it wasn't something to worry about. A very minor problem that won't affect my 500 mile drive back home. I was kind of in shock knowing that they could have played off of what I said because even I was convinced. I didn't pay anything, the guy fixed the problem and didn't charge and also included a little bag of Hershey's chocolate. So I definitely owe it to them to write this review.

My 2000 Honda Odyssey broke down climbing Donner Pass while bringing my family and my camping trailer for a summer camping trip. I got the name of the Auto and Tire Dr. from my Honda dealer back home and we managed to limp in for service.John was able to help us right away. He had a tech read the check engine light and gave me my options. When you break down on a trip, you are really vulnerable to being fed a bunch of BS because they have you over a barrel. That never happened here. John explained what the quick check showed (valve timing problems) and gave me his advice w/out any pressure like "you sure need to get this fixed - this car is unsafe...blah blah blah" I decided to leave the car and John helped me find a tow company to tow my trailer to camp. We returned to Truckee the next day and picked up the car, all fixed.I wouldn't hesitate to come back here again and it is nice to know about an honest shop out there on the road.

Used them for years. I trust them. I am sure I could save money if I went to Reno, but who's got time for that?

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!

We own a 2005 VW Toureg. I thought I had seriously damaged the engine by failing to replace the oil cap shortly before driving over Donner Summit. Andrew at the Auto Doctor agreed to see the car despite the fact that it was Saturday and he wanted to be home with his family. Andrew is a VW, Audi specialist who is very professional and the shop appears to have very best equipment and tools. finally, the cost was competitive. Even though I live in Marin County, I am going to make a point of bringing my cars to Truckee for service whenever possible.

Andrew was very helpful and knowledgable of my car. He took care of me in a timely manner and because of him I would reccomend the Auto Dotor to my friends

The Auto & Tire Doctor

Sunday wasn't the best day of my life. Having a mechanical breakdown on HWY 80 was pretty miserable. Fortunatly for me, ""The Auto & Tire Doctor"" was where the tow truck took my vehicle. The staff made everything easy, from the repair to the car rental recommendation. I REALLY like the chocolate kisses left for me in my truck. I hope I never need their services again, but if I do, I know I will be well taken care of!

I'm not a local. I was sent to the Car & Tire Doctor from someone at a restaurant! I really lucked out. I had a nail in my tire. My tire was almost flat. It was a bad situation. I rolled into the Car & Tire Doctor and they saved me. The waiting area is spacious and comfortable. They have a flat screen TV and lots of memorabilia on the walls to entertain you... They were kind and best of all, they fixed my tire.It is comforting to know that when I am in the area (and I'm here 10+ times a year) I know of a place to take my car from first hand experience!
