The Auto & Tire Doctor

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!

I had a flat tire and they fixed it really quickly. They were friendly and professional. I wanted to use them again when I bought new tires but their prices were a lot higher then what I was able to find down the hill, but the tires they quoted were also much higher quality - just not in my budget.

Love these guys! Maybe they just don't like whiny out of towners, but they treat locals like kings/queens. Always have great advice and every time I bring my car in to get it looked at, I never leave upset or angry. They've hooked me up with great snow tires a couple years ago and I keep coming back for maintenance things on my Subaru.Keep it up guys! You rock!

The service at the Auto Doctor is always the best in town! These guys go above and beyond to take care of me every time I need work on my car. They always check everything and give me the option to fix things now or later. They get the job done right and always make me feel welcome and I know I can trust them! Doing business with them since we moved to Truckee in 2001. I am a loyal customer and wouldnt think of going anywhere else! AND you get candy!!! Thanks Auto Doc!!!!

The service we got at the Auto Doctor was incredible! They helped us after we broke down on I80 passing through Truckee. Not only did they get our car fixed in a timely manner, they helped my family with our dogs and kids and helped us get to a hotel for the night in town. Picked us up they next morning, and just really cared about making sure we were ok. THAT is service! Thank you Auto Dr!!!! You guys are the best!!!

I had my car towed into these guys after it suddently lost all oil. I was pretty much stuck with no way home, so I stayed a few hours while they fixed it. They kept me totally informed, and the waiting area had plenty of space, comfort and free wifi that was super easy to access. They looked after the car and if you have to be stuck anywhere for a few hours, this is as good as it gets. They are reasonable and informative and they have created a great situation with their whole waiting area.

On a Saturday our BMW X5 starting a grinding noise with a burnt oil smell on our way to Northstar. Several folks recommended The Auto & Tire Doctor in Truckee and we managed to limp into the shop mid-morning - it turned out to be well appointed and modern. Andrew an Audi specialist (with obvious BMW knowledge) was immediately available and gave us the bad news that our front differential was going - he demonstrated this by pulling the drain plug and showing the many metal particles in the fluid. I checked with my own mechanic and an on-line service and confirmed the symptoms and what it might cost. On Monday Andrew found a rebuilt differential but the price savings wasn't worth it so I elected a new BMW part. The car was ready on time on Friday and the price was as predicted, a bit lower than at home due to the lower labor rate in Truckee. Overall a very satisfactory experience once I got beyond my BMW needed a new front differential at 60,000 miles.Tom GLos Altos CA

Amazing service again today! Rushing to work when my truck starts drifting to the left and of course it's a flat tire. Limp it into the lot and before I can even get my laptop setup up in the waiting room to try and work while I wait the flat is fixed and I'm on the road again. I know a flat is pretty simple stuff, but seriously this was fast and professional. Fantastic service every time!! Nice work guys!

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.
