My review is overdue. My family has been clients of FAS for years. Glenn the owner is terrific. He will explain, he is patient, he is fair, and he is a good guy. The prices are appropriate (not cheap/not outrageous) and the service is top notch. The front desk you will find Cindy who is very kind and knowledgeable. Over the last 20 years I have visted several auto repair businesses in Mission Viejo and Lake Forest, and I am glad we found Foothill Auto Service. (AAA Approved). Keep it up Glenn, Cindy, and staff. -- Tony S
