What Our Customers Say

We have been taking our company vehicles to Courtesy Automotive for over 3 years now. They're friendly, knowledgeable and have fair prices. This is a family owned business who really care for their clients and call them by name. I'd highly recommend them even if it's just for an oil change & filter! Thank you Sandy and crew! Merry CHRISTmas!

In a year of such chaos, Sandy and the team help put me at ease. Kind, caring, and affordable. I’m grateful I found them. A+
5 star review by Jody Maguire
Excellent Service! A family run business that has been serving the community for years! Sandy the owner is wonderful and her daughter Summer has a great sense of humor and she just might have you laughing before you leave. Professional, reliable and trustworthy. Great place to take your car.
5 star review by Janice Jason
What a great experience! I had to have my front windshield replaced due to a golf ball accident, and after asking around and looking at reviews I settled on Courtesy Automotive. I called and Spoke with Sandy. She was extremely nice and helpful. She got my car right in. I only live a few blocks from their shop, so i left my car and picked it up later. It looks great! Sandy and the technician are a pleasure to work with. I strongly recommend you speak to them for all your automotive needs.
5 star review by Tom Prince
I have been taking my Ford F150 Trucks to Courtesy Auto since 2008 - nine years. Even though I have moved from San Clemente to Trabuco Canyon, I still trust and rely on Courtesy for the friendliest customer service and the best, most honest business practices and work I have ever encountered.

5 star review by Whitt Rachel
This is a great family business. They replaced the windshield on my Toyota at a very reasonable price and within hours of service. I will be bringing in my other car in soon for service. It is nice to a honest car repair place right in south San Clemente.

5 star review by Jerrold-Jones Debra
Courtesy Automotive was great. My starter died at 12:30pm. I called them at 1pm and they said they could fit me in. AAA dropped me off at about 1:20pm with my vehicle. They confirmed the diagnosis, ordered the part and I was back on the road at 3:45pm! They were friendly, efficient and very reasonably priced!

Professional Staff

Professional people have training and experience. They have a solid understanding of their area of interest. They demonstrate expertise through results, efficiency and timeliness. Because of their expertise, they are paid a consummate sum for their services. Our technicians are professional. Our newest technician is from Colorado where he worked for a Dealership. He is a solid B technician and he works well with our A technician. Besides the two resident technicians, we use a team of professional experts who specialize in different manufacturer's vehicles. In the office, we have Sandra, Summer and myself. Both Sandra and I have advanced degrees and have held executive positions. Summer will graduate from Saddleback's automotive department in 2019. She will actually have two Associate degrees and several automotive certificates.


At Courtesy Automotive Services, Inc., our motto "Service with Integrity" is more than a motto. In 2008, Courtesy Automotive Services, Inc. was established to provide a different level of Automotive Service. It has not been easy. Customers do not know as much about their vehicle as they should and they can easily be deceived. We do not deceive, we inform. More than one technician who has worked for Courtesy has said customers "are lucky they came to Courtesy". We have NEVER taken advantage of any customer. We are trying to build the business and provide a service, not make a quick profit. We have had customers who thought they had a problem and had approved the perceived major repair to find out the repair was a fraction of what they had approved. More than one customer has seen the word Free on their invoice because there was no approval for a part. We will not start a job without your approval.


When you come to Courtesy Automotive Services, Inc. you will be greeted as a intelligent independent person. You will be asked what is wrong with your vehicle. You will be asked to sign an Estimate which allows us to move your vehicle and stipulates what fees will be charged based on the information we have at the time. You will often be asked if you would like some water or coffee. You will be asked if you want to wait for the results of the evaluation. We will print a Work Order. One of our technicians will move your vehicle into one of our four bays and begin his evaluation. After the technician finishes his evaluation, he will document his notes, measurements and recommendations on the Work Order. Those notes, measurements and recommendations will be placed in a completed estimate for your review. At this point, we consider you "informed". We will explain what the technician found and what services are recommended for your vehicle. This is the time for you to make a decision. Do you like us? Do you want us to do the work? Do you think we can fix your vehicle? Do you want us to do part of the work? These are all your decisions. We inform, you decide, unless it is a safety issue.

Written Estimates

You will always receive a written Estimate at Courtesy Automotive Services, Inc. It will be numbered and computer generated.
