My previous experience with Your Mechanic was less than ideal, HOWEVER, the customer service department reached out to me and made it right. They sent Martin Light to do the additional repairs, for the price that was quoted. He came on time, went out of his way to give me awesome service and make the repairs. This is the best way to determine if you are working with a reputable company - how they handle a mistake. They made it right, and that is all you can ask for. It is so much easier for me have my car repaired or maintained while I am working in my home office. I can't afford to sit for the day at the dealership. I tried calling Subaru and getting a loaner car during the repairs, and that was next to impossible. No one would even return my calls. I am SO SO happy that this works. I will use Martin again and can not recommend him highly enough. He is knowledgeable, friendly, on time and Your Mechanic will stand behind him. That is Gold!! Thank you!!!

Answers to common Subaru Forester questions

Q: Compass broke, a pain for being out in the mountains
Answered by Tom Rendahl
Hello James! Thank you for writing in about this problem. The compass failure could be related to the wiring that runs to the mirror/compass. It could also be that the compass was inadvertently turned off (the right-side button on the...
Q: Car takes longer to start, shakes, idles poorly & does not accelerate well going uphill. Check engine light is on.
Answered by James
The symptoms you describe definitely sound like a severe engine misfire. This is likely related to the coil since you have obvious signs of failure (arcing from the side). I recommend having a qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic...
Q: ABS sensor and changing break fluid
Answered by Ronny
Wheel speed sensors are part of the electronics of the anti-lock system. While they're an integral part of the brake system, they are separate from the hydraulic components of the brake system. Short of possibly having to move an ABS...
Q: I live at 9,200 ft. in the mountains above Colorado Springs. As long as I drive my '09 Forrester X limited at this altitude all is
Answered by Tim
Hi there. This issue is rather common with vehicles that deal with dramatic changes in density altitude, such as what you've described. The P0420 OBD-II trouble code (https://www.yourmechanic.com/article/p0420-obd-ii-trouble-code-catalyst-system-efficiency-below-threshold-bank-1-by-jamahl-walker) indicates that the catalytic converter is not working as efficiently as it...

Trusted by thousands of happy car owners



Yourmechanic.com is a woman's prayered answered. My stress was zero. I didn't have to drop off the car and wait for an outrageous quote from the corner mechanic. I was able to schedule and know the price immediately. I will use yourmechanic.com from now on. If you are in the Las Vegas area. I recommend requesting Scott Franklin. He goes above and beyond customer service.



Kevin showed up ready to do his job and did just that. He showed me a couple important things on my vehicle I had overlooked and was nothing less than incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and informative. I would, without hesitation recommend him to anyone I know and would gladly use him again.



Stephen was very professional and spoke to me in terms that I understood. Although the news about the car was not great, he explained the why's and what it would take to fix it. I will call on him again. Many thanks!
