Doc's is possibly the last place in Steamboat that still provides great service at a fair price.

Seems my wife's Honda had serious problems in the 4th cylinder. Whereas a lesser shop would have approached this by removing the engine for access, Doc and his crew saved the day with slow, thoughtful perseverance that not only saved us money but fixed the car up right! Thank YOU!

John and Mary do a great job in the office and the mechanics always do a great job.

I've been taking our three vehicles to Doc's for a number of years.  Whether it's an oil change or some major work, including on an '86 Porsche, Brian or John can handle it.  Wouldn't think of going anywhere else.

I will not bring my car to any other place in Steamboat! Incredibly professional, friendly and always provide excellent service! I tell everyone I can about Doc’s.

Doc was able to check out my brakes when a grinding noise started before I headed back to Denver. Just Brakes put in a bolt incorrectly and my brake was scraping the wheel! He put in a new bolt, checked the others, and sent me on my way. Thanks Doc!

Doc was my guardian angel in a time of crisis. Without him, my ten year old son and I would have literally been stranded. I can't thank him enough or imagine would I could even do to repay him for his extreme generosity. I am forever in debt to him.

Great people super friendly and knowledgeable.

Excellent Service! Work was performed very well. The mechanics informed me on what was going on with my worktruck and performed the service needed to get me back on the road.

These guys are friendly, professional & have fine communication. As an 8-year local, I am very comfortable knowing I have trusted people which I can turn to for my automotive needs. Highly recommended.

INCREDIBLE SERVICE!!!!!!!!

— Facebook User

Very professional, helpful and honest. I appreciate the extra time to explain things. We've been taking are cars to Doc's for years and I trust them with our vehicles. Driving kids all around the state for different sports, I want my vehicles taken care of so that I can do what I have to do, and that is what Doc's allows me to do. Thank you.

Doc's stood by there work and worked very hard to fix the problem. You don't find many who will do that any more!

— DemandForce User

The only place I will bring my car. They're always friendly, knowledgeable, professional, timely, and passionate about their craft. Each service that they provide goes above and beyond, and I am constantly impressed each time I go in!

— Facebook User

Always the friendliest staff and the best service! My car is happy and so am I :)

Took my wife's car in for repair, price was more than fair. Great, fast service, very professional. I was a mechanic  for over 40 years, owned my own business in Fort Collins for almost 20 years, it is hard for me to take my car anywhere I can trust, but not being able to do many repairs myself in condo area, and after reading reviews thought I would give them a try. Well done! What I can not fix myself I will be taking back to you guys! Thank you!

As a Steamboat resident for 17 plus years...Doc's Auto Clinic has done amazing service on all of our vehicles.  The Doc's Team is fair and always offers what is best for your vehicle and not simply offering services that are not needed.  With one of our vehicles at over 202,000 miles, our 2003 Chevy Suburban under the Doc's Auto Clinic Team is still going strong and provides my family with safety and reliability.  Keep up the good work!

Purchased a used '13 Jeep GC @ a dealer in Denver last autumn and last friday I brought it to our local dealer to remove the snowtires, check the factory recalls and to have an oil-filter change (first one while in our possession of the vehicle).   They were unable to remove oil pan drain plug and said the bolt head became "rounded" with repeated attempts and that the oil pan would need to be replaced at a subsequent visit & at a cost of $1400 (initially I was told over the phone 1400 and later was told between 1100-1400).   I was told the ONLY alternative was to remove the oil pan but that I could contact the dealership conglomerate that last changed the oil in Boulder and/or that my auto insurance company might reimburse us for the necessary repair.  I asked if the oil pan drain plug could be removed by some method or drilled out....No. When I picked up the vehicle, I reviewed the printed invoice (#1 - 01F: CHANGE OIL AND FILTER ON A GAS ENGINE Work performed by _____ COULDN'T PERFORM LOF.  DRAIN PLUG WOLD NOT COME OUT.  RECOMMENDED OIL PAN REPLACEMENT. CUSTOMER DECLINED and scheduled the earliest available return appt for the oil pan in two weeks.    At home, I crawled under the vehicle to view the rounded drain plug bolt head and found the bolts on the skid plate didn't appear to have been touched (to remove the skid plate for better tool access like with a pipe wrench) and GOOGLE searched (rounded oil pan drain plug head). Monday, drove to Doc's Auto Clinic to discuss the use of pipe wrench after removal of the skid plate vs. an alternative method like an Irwin bolt grip socket and to schedule the next available appt.  Doc reassured me that he couldn't recall having to replace an oil pan because of stuck-rounded oil pan drain plug. Yesterday (thursday) @ Doc's, the "rounded" drain plug did require two bolt grip sockets (first one cracked) for removal but didn't require removal of the skid plate.  In their opinion a flush of the crankcase was not required, based on inspection of the drained oil (coincided with previous documentation of the oil changes/mileage on the Carfax when we purchased the car). They placed/gently torqued in a new magnetic drain plug (I had prepurchased @ auto parts store), replaced the filter and filled the crankcase with synthetic blend (my request) all for $60. Happily (relieved), my credit card payment and thank yous were accompanied by a couple of cold, six packs of assorted microbrews from Arctic Liquors and my assurance that both of our vehicles would now be serviced by Doc and his adept team.   The four indiividuals that I had any contact with (@ Doc's) could not have been more professional, amiable, competent and confidence inspiring.  Disclaimer-My only previous contact with any of the individuals at Doc's was with Doc during a group mtb trip to the Hillyard-Fowler-10th Mtn Div hut last summer. (On the drive home I did stop by the dealership to cancel the oil pan replacement appt, speak with the service manager about the experience-outcome and that we would no longer be bringing our vehicles to their service dept-previously 10 yr relationship with 4 vehicles).

Best customer service in Steamboat, without a doubt! And I've taken my car to multiple places for service.

AWESOME !!!! We were there for a baseball tournament when our truck broke down in town. They helped us get a tow truck and John had already ordered some parts before we got to their shop. Tim fixed everything in the parking lot (while raining) because they were so busy they had all their bays full. They had us on our way in less than 2 hours from breaking down and I thought the price was as good or better than my normal mechanic in Parker. Thank You !!!

Prompt Service way better than steamboat motors

— Google User

The antithesis of what you might normally expect at an automotive shop.  It's clean and they are incredibly polite and responsive.  More importantly, they give good advice and do great work.  I couldn't be happier.

Two major repairs needed, two awesome jobs done. Wouldn't go anywhere else, not even to the dealership.

— Facebook User

Everything performed as requested and required. Follow up and adjustment was performed at no cost. While this company may not be the cheapest in Steamboat, they stand behind their work, keep customers apprised of the expected repairs and get repairs done on time. I have been using Doc's for several years and see no reason to look elsewhere. The only suggestion that I offer is that Doc's should be banking at the Yampa Valley Bank-the only locally owned bank in Steamboat!

The crew at Doc's is fantastic! They take care of every repair in a timely manner, their prices are fair, and the work is top-notch. I've been taking my cars there for 17 years and trust them completely.

This was for tire change.  Very fast service with reasonable price.  No complaints. Use Doc's for all my service.

My first experience with Docs Auto went so well, I brought our second car to them. Professional service, wonderful communication and the job was done in the time they estimated. Not only was I impressed with their service, I have noticed they sponsor community functions and events. I do not know any of them personally, and I do not usually give reviews, but this place impressed me.

Great communication, always friendly and helpful! Thank you for keeping our fleet of Steamboat Powersports trucks maintained and ready to go.

When out car broke down on the way out of Steamboat Springs, Docs was able to help us out the same day. Everyone at Docs is super friendly, especially Mary. We are very grateful!

— Google User

When we move to a town, we always look for a great mechanic that we can drop our car off with and never worry if they are being fair or not. Doc's is such a place, they will tell us what they found and suggest if we need to fix it now or later.  Trust is earned and over several years Doc's has earned out trust.

— Yelp User

I can't say enough about the team at Doc's. Everything from scheduling with Mary, the updates and info from John, the service work and the follow up has been 5 stars. Availability has been good as well as service time. I've mostly had alignments, tire service, etc., but there's nowhere else I would go for any repair service.

Daughter from Denver visited and blew engine in her car at bottom of Rabbit Ears Pass.  Major repair required.  Doc's had worked on car previously, but we shopped around.  Doc's was not the cheapest, but could promise timing of repair.  Also, we trust Doc's for quality and accountability.  We drove the finished car to Denver 1.5 weeks after the engine blew.  New engine in it now, ran great.  If your vehicle matters to you, I'd take it to Doc's.  There are some things to skimp on.  Your car is not one of them, in my view.

Great experience with everyone at doc's. Very friendly people and they do great work. If I ever find myself broken down in steamboat again I will definitely be giving them a call.

I had car troubles between Denver and Steamboat. Doc's let me drop my car off at 330 on a Friday, drove us to town, fixed everything before 5, and picked us back up from town. We were expecting to be without a car on our vacation, so their friendliness and expertise was so appreciated!

— Google User

Mary is unbelievably good. What a great first person contact. You guys are the best.

— DemandForce User

Doc's Auto is definitely the go to place to get your ride serviced or fixed in Steamboat. They provide consistent, professional service and do their best to get you out of a pinch no matter what. Mary, Dina, and even Doc himself are all extremely personable and will always recommend what is best for your car. They put customers first.
