Often when you think of diagnosing your car, you think of a scan tool and a code reader. Scan tools, called OBD-II, are designed to work with vehicles with diagnostic capabilities, made effective through legislation in 1994. Every car that comes off the production line is equipped with OBD-II capabilities. Scan tools provide a code that offers solid clues as to what is causing the issue in your car or truck. The reading the OBD-II provides a starting point for an auto mechanic to work from when going through a process of elimination. It is easy to throw parts unnecessarily on a car until an issue goes away; however, we believe in value at Foothill Auto Service. Our auto mechanics are trained to seek out the root issue and resolve the problem without unnecessary repairs or parts.

When dealing with a diagnostic and repair issue, you want to turn to the team at Foothill Auto Service. Don't just take our word for it; see what our customers are saying about us:

Visiting from out of town and had issues with my car overheating.  I'd previously taken it to a mechanic back home and they'd been unable to diagnose any problem.  Glenn's team was able to solve the issue (a conductor to the fan) in around an hour (with no charge for the initial diagnostic work).  Dropped my car off first thing in the morning and it was ready for me to pick up by midday.

The charge was reasonable and he did not try to upsell me on any unnecessary fixes.  He was also very welcoming and had fresh drinks stocked in the waiting room as well as offered me a ride a home so I wouldn't have to wait for my car at the shop itself.

I would definitely recommend this business as they seemed both confident and honest. -- Mary A K
