Great place for an oil change. No appt necessary. Took about an hour for full oil service.

Really friendly staff! It was only 45$ for an oil change! Also, there is a comfortable lounge area to relax at while your car is getting worked on which is a mega plus when your getting an oil change and have to hang out.

There was a piece of plastic hanging off the bottom of my car during the middle of my work day and sounded awful when I drove. I thought something was really wrong. I was worried that I was going to have to call it a day. They quickly checked my car, removed the piece, and sent me on my way without any charge. I appreciate the service and will return.

Based on today's experience, I couldn't have been happier. Went in, without an appointment, to get my tires balanced. (Was afraid there may be something else wrong with my front end). Within 30 minutes, they called my name and my truck was done. They were very friendly, and I'm also glad the said there wasn't any bad new in the end Thank you!

I stopped in on a Friday morning with my trailer that needed it's brakes adjusted before heading over the mountain into the Bay Area. Got there before they opened and the woman inside was very courteous and said the crew would be in soon. When John arrived he said they could help me out as soon as Justin arrived.Shortly after 8am he arrived and I backed my trailer into his work area. Within 15 minutes or so he was done adjusting my trailer brakes! Went inside to see how much I owed them and all John said was "just have a nice day"! I said "really, no charge", you guys are solid and thank you very much! These guys are the best and I'll continue to bring my business to them when I'm in Truckee for sure.Thanks John and Justin!

I love this place! Subaru specialists!!! They are an amazing group of people and they are super friendly. They always take care of me with lots of great professionalism. My Subaru loves getting worked on by them because they treat her right!I am not one for appointments and they have a cool drop off system. This is my favorite because then they can start working on it first thing in the am and I don't have to wake up early to drop it off. I wish I could bring these guys everywhere I go. Tahoe love!

These guys are fabulous! I would give 6 stars if I could. Our Hummer has had issues twice while vacationing in Tahoe. A catalytic converter went out last year and this year it was a water pump. No one likes unexpected car problems on vacation but these guys are fast and efficient. We did not have a ride back to our cabin after dropping it off and the gal who worked there said she would drive us back. That wasn't even the best part . While driving us back we mentioned the temp gauge started going up while we were heading to the Lake that morning . she literally pulled over, made a call, circled back to the shop and jumped out and gave us her keys and let us take it until our was ready! Saved our next couple days. Again their customer service is above par!

The Employees at the Auto Doctor are Great, they go above and beyond. They are Courteous, kind and very helpful, and make sure you get the best care rather you are a local or from out of town. When my car broke down on Donner pass and I got towed there I never expected the excellent service I received. If you break down on Donner Pass or anywhere in the area or just need a good check up on your car I whole heartedly recommend the Auto Doctor. A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THE STAFF! Patricia Cummins

Thank you for the wonderful review, Patricia! We are so glad you enjoyed our service.

The Auto & Tire Doctor

I don't often write reviews, but after my visit to the Auto Doctor, I thought I would share my experience. I came in on a busy Friday with a car that had to be towed in because it had dash warning lights on. There were 2 people at the counter, Gabby and Tim, and they said they probably wouldn't be able to look at it until Monday, as they were already really busy. A third person, Tom, came in from the shop area, heard the last part of the conversation, jumped in and said " we are busy, but we will figure it out". I was skeptical, as I am a woman and very wary of auto repair places in general, but especially when I really had no choice, as I was broken down. I was expecting the worst, either a huge repair bill while stranded in Truckee, or the car just sitting all day and nobody looking at it. I was wrong on both counts.Tom took my keys and took the car around back. He made sure I had the WiFi password and told me where I could get lunch if I was hungry. I sat for 15 minutes and he assured me that I would have an answer soon.After about 30 minutes, he came through the back door with paperwork and came over to the couch. I thought to myself, he we go, what bad news does he have for me? He explained the results of the inspection, my car was 5,000 miles past due for an oil change and the coolant level was low. My dash warning light was only a low coolant light, not a terminal issue, but I did not know that. I came in prepared to pay for a large repair. I came in expecting the worst in a small town repair shop, but I was pleasantly surprised. To the Auto Doctor crew, thank you for treating me fairly and for going out of your way to make me feel welcome. I do not live in your area, so I am writing this review to make sure that others know you are a special place to do business with; as you truly care about your customers. PS: They also had warm chocolate chip cookies.
