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!
