I just had them do new brakes and rotors for my front wheels on my '98 Toyota 4Runner. They are more expensive than Midas in Reno but cheaper than the Toyota dealer. They do try to keep local customers from going to Reno for work on their vehicles and are willing to work on repair prices. New brakes are fine and a significant improvement on my worn original equipment front brakes. They are nice guys and try hard to please. Also, they are patient in explaining cost and repair issues with customers.

When they do a major service, they like to de-grease the engine. Do NOT let them do this. The chemical they use STINKS for a week afterwards and it gave me a headache and sore throat. Also, afterwards, open the hood and make sure that all hoses, etc. are reconnected. Sometimes they miss one. These guys are nice, their new shop is a 100% improvement on their old place and they are patient in explaining things. They now also do tires which is great because Truckee desperately needed another tire shop to do winter/summer change overs. They also seem to know Toyota and Subaru 4WDs very well. They are definitely better than the dealers in Reno.

Nice guys, nice new shop which is a great improvement over their old shop. Also do tires. Seem to know Subarus and Toyotas very well. Much better than going to dealers in Reno. Don't let them use a degreaser to clean your vehicle's engine. Stinks for a week afterwards and may give you a headache and sore throat. Also check hoses etc. when done as sometime they leave something loose.

They just did a major service for my ten year old 4Runner. Required new shocks and struts as well as the usual. Did not change things that did not need replacement. Are honest. Provided ride with professional service as they needed vehicle all day. Nice guys but pricey but hey it is better than being stuck in Reno sitting on one's butt for a day.
