This is where to take all your automotive needs in the Grass Valley/Nevada City area. The staff is well trained, nice, and fast. I will always go here when my car needs some work done.

This is the place to take your car for oil change, and repair. Robert the owner is just about the nicest person...no wait, I take that back... Anthony at the desk is the nicest person. That's because he's Robert's son. Anyway, it is a pleasure taking my car to this place and knowing I can trust they will do excellent work, at a reasonable price. The business is so clean eating lunch while you wait wouldn't be a problem. Thank you Foothill Car Care for being consistently the best for a lot of years.

Anthony and Foothill Car Care was great. I had a string of unfortunate occurrences and needed a quick car repair so that I could make it to my grandmother's 90th birthday party. They quoted me a great price and got me in the same day by 3pm so that I arrived that the party early! Thank you again!

These people are the best and super friendly. I was on my way home to Oakland from Grass Valley, the day after Christmas and found out my alternator was out and there was no way I could drive home. I have a 1990 Honda Accord. I found these folks and even though they couldn’t get my car fixed till the day after and hence I would be stuck in Grass Valley an extra night, they were great!! Shuttled me to cafe so i could wait for someone to pick me up (not many things were open on the 26th). Looked at it THAT afternoon to make sure it could be fixed, called me with updates and when I showed up at 10:30 am the next day, expecting to wait at a cafe for them to be done, the car was already DONE! And very reasonably priced and they offer AAA discounts. (Luckily I am a member).. IF only I lived up here I would go here all the time. Totally trust these guys and owe them everything for making this situation a lot easier than it could have been.

I have a 2005 Prius that takes an HID headlight. Toyota's price to replace one headlight bulb ranges from $500-800. I bought the bulb for $90 at Riebes, thinking I could install it myself, only to find that it is extremely difficult to do without scratching the bulb. Foothill Car Care estimated $25 to install the bulb I had already bought, and gave me a same day appointment. When I got there, I waited a very short time before they told me it was FREE because I had already taken the old bulb out! Very little time and free... This will be the only car place in Grass Valley I go to from now on.

I love Foothill Car Care. Owning an Audi can be daunting at times, but they make it so much easier to know that I am getting the best service around. I just recently took my car in for some major work, and they had it done within 24 hrs and under the quoted cost. My car drives like new again and I couldn't be happier with the service I received. Living out of the Grass Valley area now means I have more options, but knowing I can trust them is well worth the trip up the hill.

They were wonderful. The service was excellent and in a timely manner. The folks working there were super nice and a pleasure to talk to. We will continue to patronize their business.

I really appreciate being able to trust my mechanic. I've found them to be super friendly, very informative, and the rates have always been reasonable. Any maintenance or repair has been completed promptly and either at or under the quoted rate. As an added bonus, the business owner is also a strong community supporter. It feels great to support a local business that also supports the community.

I took my truck there, thinking my suspension was a problem because of a noise it was making. They put it up on the rack, looked it over thoroughly, fixed a couple minor issues they found, told me my suspension was fine, and didn't charge me a dime! I was thoroughly impressed - I'm going back for all my repair needs!

Foothill car care has been our trusted mechanic for many years! Robert and his team have handled everything from a major engine repair to a simple smog for us. They are honest and I never worry that I am going to be sold unnecessary repairs.

Recently I needed a smog repair and took it to foothill car care. Robert called me and said the vehicle needed to be driven a certain amount of miles because the car had been sitting for several months and had a dead battery (not sure if this was why it needed to be driven). I told Robert I could pick it up the next day and drive the car and return it the following day. Robert said he would drive the car if that was ok with me and that saved me a ton of time and money. The following day I picked up my car and got my smog certificate. I wish there were more businesses like this that go the extra mile and think about the customer! I will definitely use Foothill Car Care in the future.

After asking around for a good car mechanic in Grass Valley to whom I could entrust my Civic, Robert and his company Foothill Car Care was recommended to me by friends. With their recommendation and other reviews in Yelp, I decided Robert is my mechanic. I haven't been disappointed.

I'm the owner of ABT Plumbing, Electric Heat & Air and have over 8 vehicles on our fleet. Foothill Car Care has helped us with the service of out fleet for years. Great staff.

I have taken my Honda CRV there several times, and have always received prompt service for a reasonable price. In fact, it has been great to just "drop-in" and have a headlight replaced, or have windshield wipers put on without needing an appointment! Thanks so much, you guys!

Foothill Car Care has been taking care of all of my vehicles for the past 3 years. I am always confident when I take a trip or other long drive because I know that my cars are safe and they always get me home.

My wife and I brought in our 2005 SUV and they did a great job getting our new water pump on, reasonably priced and quickly completed. Heater works and my wife and kids are no longer cold. Thank you.
