I have used their service several times now and every single time they have walked the second mile, helping with any additional request I had (e.g. changing wiper blades, inspecting the brakes) at times at no charge. They always kept me aware of what was going on, were timely in their service, have a great waiting area with Wi-Fi and TV and are very reasonably priced. Best mechanic I have ever used.

Up in Tahoe for the weekend and we got a nail in one of our tires on a Saturday afternoon. Brought it in here and they were able to patch it up and send us on our way in about 20 minutes. When I asked the owner/tech?? how much he said it was no charge and that he couldn't charge me for something so simple. Great place and great employees. I highly recommend them.

On the way to Burning Man, our 32' Class A motorhome had a blowout on I-80 at midnight, in which the engine died as well. All the auto shops were closed, of course, but the tow truck guy took us here as he felt they were the most reliable RV shop in town.We talked to their technician Allen the next morning, who unfortunately informed us they were so booked up that they probably wouldn't be able to start work until Monday! (This was Thursday morning). Since Burning Man was also starting on Monday, that meant we were going to miss some unknown amount of the event itself...We ended up getting a tow to mechanic in Reno that was able to look at the RV that same day. But the reason I'm writing this review is because Allen was tremendously helpful through this whole process. He hooked us up with a super-reliable towing guy (who inspired a separate review), helped us speed the process by taking us to the tire store the next door (and having one of his mechanic squeeze in the tire change for a mere $15). He was also just ridiculously friendly and good-natured.He took a stressful situation and actually spent quite a bit of time throughout the morning helping us put together the pieces for our solution. And Auto Doctor only got a $15 tire change out of it. VERY much appreciated.

The service at The Auto Doctor was outstanding! I suffered a roadside tow in the area and AAA brought me here as I was an out of towner and did not have a local mechanic. Though it was closing time, they stuck around to receive the car and get my paperwork in. They kept in touch and had my car fixed and ready to go in 24hrs. I would refer these guys emphatically to anyone in the area.

The Auto & Tire Doctor's is the best service I have ever received in an auto repair setting. Honesty, clear explanations, high quality work, and very fair prices make this a great place to bring your auto problems. Customer service will bring me back with any auto needs in the future.

Such a great experience with the Auto Doc. You can really tell that it is a family owned/operated business, as the owner, John, made sure I had everything I needed. When my Ford started giving me some problems, I stopped by and even in the midst of lunch time, they dropped what they were doing to help me get back on the road as quickly as possible. After a brief wait in the awesome waiting room (equipped with leather couches, food/snakcs, even wifi) they informed me of the problem and let me know what it would take to get it fixed. They even followed up after my visit to ensure I had no other issues and that the repair was a success!

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.
