I requested Your Mechanic’s services due to my check engine light coming on. Peter showed up early and was able to diagnose and fix the issue in a timely manner. Peter was also very pleasant and I was charged a fair price for the repair. I’ve also had Peter fix my car on two previous occasions and I was very pleased with his services those times as well. I would definitely recommend him to fix your car as well!
