YourMechanic's User Dashboard

YourMechanic is changing the way car owners experience car maintenance and repair. Currently, we offer over 500 onsite services, from oil changes to timing belt replacements - even pre-purchase inspections.

To make car care even more user-friendly, we’ve created a new user dashboard. Now you can enter details about your car and keep track of past and future appointments, maintenance reminders, repair estimates, receipts, service history, personalized mechanic recommendations, and more.

Maintenance reminders

Filter replacements and tire rotations are just two of the many regular services most cars require. Our system monitors the service intervals recommended by the manufacturer and lets you know when scheduled maintenance is due.

Car health monitor

Our mechanics inspect the major systems in your car, such as the fluids and tires, at each service and record what they find. Maintaining a log of the health of your car’s essential components is key to preventing problems and fixing small issues before they become major ones.

Your complete service history

Every time a service is completed by one of our mechanics, it’s tracked in your account. If you’ve had services performed by another company or by yourself, you can upload that data too. You can even log business expenses, calculate your annual car costs, and review your entire service history.

Appointment and quote management

In the appointment section, you can see upcoming appointments, saved quotes, and pending estimates. YourMechanic quotes never expire; once you receive a quote it won’t change. You can book the appointment whenever you’re ready. With every quote comes a detailed price breakdown with labor and parts information. We are 100% transparent in our pricing and there are no hidden fees or markups.

Chat with the mechanic before an appointment

If you want to give your mechanic more information before your scheduled appointment or need to ask a question, you can now chat live with your mechanic 24 hours before an appointment.

Personalized mechanic recommendations

Once a service is complete, all the repairs recommended by the mechanic are recorded in your account. You can review all quotes at your convenience and book when you’re ready.

Ask free questions & save helpful articles

If you have a question about your car but don’t need to book an appointment, you can ask our mechanics a specific question - and receive an answer in less than 24 hours. We pride ourselves on providing more than car repair - we also advise you on car-relate issues. Ask our mechanics any question for free or browse over 5,000 articles.
