Everything was fine as always

by - Verified Customer November 14, 2017

This was a routine service. Everything seems to be as expected. Felt it to be a fair price for the service.

by - Verified Customer October 26, 2017

Best service I have ever had at a repair shop and I've been MANY places. Jon helped over his call if duty to make sure that not only were my needs met in fixing my car but that it was affordable. Still a lot to be done but the immediate need was taken care of quicky. And Robert made his explanation of my mechanical issues not seem so Japanese. Thanks guys!

by - Verified Customer September 14, 2017

Everything was done correctly and quickly. I am just waiting for a visor to come in to replace my old one.

by - Verified Customer September 12, 2017

We were very, very pleased - the bad master cyclinder was quickly replaced and got my RX8 up and running just fine again - we just moved to the area recently and were looking for a new general car mechanic - and now, we've found one - when we have future car maintenance work to do, we'll be back, for sure! Thank you ...

by - Verified Customer September 12, 2017

I brought my truck into Foothill Car Care after my son suggested I try them. They gave a detailed estimate, performed all work as expected, communicated clearly and finished early for exactly what I was anticipating to pay. I'll be back!

by - Verified Customer March 30, 2017

It took a lot to get parts for my Suzuki, and it took months to get to the end of repairs, but it finally passed smog. As far as I know I'm pleased with the work. I also appreciate the shuttle service. It makes it so much easier.

by - Verified Customer March 23, 2017

I definitely go.

by - Verified Customer March 15, 2017
