Louisville tire has been a great mechanic for me. The kept my 1992 Ford Taurus running. They always explain what they are doing to repair. A Story: I took my Taurus to Louisville tire to check an oil change and check on an engine rattle. The Mechanic told be one of the Motor mounts were broken and the engine was not jumping and sifting. This was not safe to drive. The repair would be about $150 or more. After the Mechanic looked at the motor mount he found the screw inside the motor mount fell out and the mount itself was fine. The Mechanic re-threaded the screw hole and re-attached the motor mount. Cost $80. WOW, an honest shop! Another Story: I just bought a 2002 Subaru Outback in March (2006). The mileage was just over 63,000. There was a smell of leaking coolant so I took My newly purchased Subaru Outback to Louisville tire. Their Analysis: A blown left head gasket, at least $800 to repair. While I was about to pull away in a loaner car one of the Mechanics remembered there was a circular from Subaru about a recall for Subaru Outback for a this very same problem. They called Flatirons Subaru (in Boulder Co), on my behalf, to check on the recall. My VIN # was not among the cars recalled. But, Subaru would probably agreed to do the repair for free since is was just 3500 miles out of warrantee and it was a know problem in other Outback. Bryan (from Louisville Tire) came and told me what Flatirons Subaru has said. I took the care to Flatirons Subaru and they did do the repair for free. I am VERY grateful for Louisville Tire for saving me several hundred Dollars and looking out for a loyal customer.

My wife and I just moved to Louisville a month ago. It was time for an oil change, and I had a coupon for that, plus a tire rotation, fluid top off, check-everything-on-the-car inspection, etc. from another local shop. After doing all that this shop told me I needed, new front struts, rear shocks, and a flush of the transmission, power steering, brake, and coolant fluids, totaling at least $500 in costs, I wanted a second opinion. After finding Louisville Tire and Auto reviewed on this site, I scheduled them to look at my car ('95 Honda Odyssey)this morning. After about 15 minutes they came out and said all those things were fine, plus there's a slight oil leak on one side of the oil pan...something that the first shop didn't notice. The guy at the front desk at Louisville Tire actually said, "Well, I'm sorry we don't have anything to sell you today", to which I replied, "That's a shame". While I was in the waiting room reading about a guy who installed a jet engine in his F-150, there was another guy who had just had his oil changed and was pulling out of the lot when a mechanic ran out of the shop and yelled at the guy to hold on a sec. Apparently they had accidentally installed the wrong oil filter. Now, they could have easily not said anything and let the guy drive off, but they put his car back on the lift and made things right. I don't know if installing the wrong oil filter is a huge deal or not, but they noticed their mistake and corrected it right away.

I own a '99 Dodge Durango with 170+ K miles on it. That should say enough right there! They keep it running for me. Very pleasant informative staff, and it is clear to me over the 8 years I have been going there that they want to give you the best service possible. On several occasions they have helped me avoid expensive repairs, and have even helped me postpone a couple unavoidable expensive repairs until my paycheck could support it. I've had two components over the years that turned out to be faulty and they handled all the warranty junk and got me fixed up quick. Really good, family owned, honest folks at this shop, I definitely trust them. PS - They like doughnuts, but Mike (back in the shop) is the only one that will eat the ones with sprinkles!

I took my 2002 Ford F-150 there when I started having some engine problems. The spent over 3 hours running various tests to determine what was wrong including a computer pressure test on all of the cylinders. In the end, the believed there to be a bad computer, which turned out to be incorrect, and sent me over to the Ford shop for further diagnostics. They were very fair and only charged me for one hour of labor. The completely explained what they were doing and what they had found. They took the time to explain what each of their finds meant so I had a complete understanding of what I was dealing with. These guys were great and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

I had LTAC change my snow tires to summer tires last spring and then stored the snows in my garage in the plastic storage bags they supplied. I brought those snow tires back to them last week in the same storage bags and they called and left a message that the tires I brought them weren't my snows. I looked in the garage where the tires had been stored and those were the definitely the tires they had given me last spring. I picked the tires back up from them and they were not even the right size for my car so they definitely somehow put someone else's tires in the storage bags and they ended up in the back of my station wagon. I called and explained what had happened...they offered to "sell" me some cheap Hercules tires and I told them that I would like tires of comparable quality (Hankook snows). In the meantime, I called a friend in the car business and he said this wasn't unusual. He said it was easy to confuse tires and when they get thrown in a storage bag and there is a garage full of them, it's a mistake that happens. I went in to the store talk to the owner directly hoping we could work something out. I told the owner (Bryan) what happened and he said it was impossible. I asked him how I could possibly have a set of tires that weren't the right size stored in my garage? Furthermore, why would I have brought these tires with their storage bags into get them installed on my car?? He said this has never happened in 25 years and there was no reason I would have looked inside the bags to make sure they were actually mine. I told him I knew they had a great reputation but mistakes do happen. I didn't know how old my lost tires were or how much wear they had (they came with the car when I bought it 2 1/2 years ago) so I suggested we split the cost of new tires 50-50. He said he would look through his records and get back to me. Four days past and I heard nothing so I called and left a message to have him call back. No call. Another week past and still no call back so I emailed asking for a call back and still no reply. In the meantime I bought new snow tires elsewhere. It's too bad they were not only incapable of admitting a mistake, but then didn't call back as promised, wouldn't return a phone message and ignored additional emails. If it was only a few bucks I would move on, but $750 to replace the snows they lost when I offered to split the cost 50-50 can't be ignored. Too bad as I like to support local businesses. Now small claims court is my only recourse.

I had previously posted a negative review due to a misunderstanding over set of snow tires. The owner Brian and I have come to an agreement that resolves the issue but I am unable to get the negative review removed from this site. Please note that I am once again a fan of Louisville Tire and Auto and would recommend them to anyone looking for a tire or repair shop. Thank you Brian for taking care of our issue!
