Great service for a great price. Steve is a great guy who never tries to push or sell you on unnecessary work. He is straight-forward, honest, and great to work with.

So happy I was able to have them work on my brakes while I was in Radford for a couple days. I live in Northern, Va but was in town visiting a friend. The place I took my car to before gave me an outrageous price quote that I knew I couldn't trust. Luckily the car doctors did the same fix for a much, much more reasonable price. I will gladly bring my car back here if I'm ever in town again! So happy I was able to support a honest, small business.

Piero Bonamico - 5 STAR * * * * * 1/6/18

I recently moved from Vermont to Washington D.C. I have a 2013 Kia Optima with approximately 113,000 miles, and I let my car go FAR too long before getting service. I didn't want to go to the dealer and thought I would eventually get back to my 20-year-trusted mechanic back home. Well, when the brakes started grinding I turned to Yelp and found The Car Doctor. The experience was wonderful from the moment I walked into the moment they delivered my car back in perfect working order. The price seemed fair, and everything was explained in detail. The was no pressure, and I was given clear options as to what had to happen right away and what could wait. Having a mechanic, you can trust to both fix your car and not make you feel like an idiot is essential. I've finally found mine here in the DMV!

I love when you can find a mechanic that's as trustworthy as your own father!

Diane R - 5 STAR * * * * * 12/8/16

They're an independent repair shop that treats you like a client that they're happy to have.

Chris C - 5 STAR * * * * * 8/22/2016

I'll never take my car anywhere else! I'm so glad I found this place. My husband and I both take our car here to be serviced. They do excellent work, are quick, easy to get an appointment with, and most importantly - they are HONEST! They will tell you if you can wait on a service, or if something is unnecessary, and they won't charge you for things that you don't need. Everyone that I've dealt with there is very friendly, as well.

Martin W - 5 STAR * * * * * 8/17/15

Like other reviewers we went to the car doctor because of all the positive reviews! We took our son's Nissan in for a full service, it has 100k miles and was sluggish to say the least. We couldn't be happier, the service manager Steve called and went through their findings in detail. It's now driving like a car with half the miles and is smooth and quiet. Thanks for a job well done, we'll be back.

The Car Doctor has serviced my Honda for years and, without exception, they have done excellent work at a reasonable price. The real benefit of finding a trustworthy mechanic/shop is when they give you options and/or actually turn down business because you don't need the repair. These guys seem like they're interested in establishing long term relationships with their customers based on quality work and honest assessments of a car's condition. They merit five-stars in my book for honesty, integrity, and quality work.

Nicole G - 5 STAR * * * * * 6/27/16

This business cares about their customers and that is evident not only in the quality of the customer service, but also in the quality of car care. This place is well worth the drive from Washington DC for great, reliable, well-priced car repairs.

Michael H. - 5 STAR * * * * * 12/20/13

They had a bay reserved for me when I got there. My car was being serviced inside of 5 minutes. They had just had breakfast delivered and asked me if I wanted some pancakes. :-) In checking the car, they found a locking lug nut missing. They called around to area businesses asking if they had a spare one they could sell me as opposed to a set of 4, which I didn't need. They were done inside of 45 minutes. The mechanic reviewed a couple things with me that could wait until next time and there was no pressure applied at all to try and sell me things I didn't need. These are some of the nicest people you will ever meet.
