Jose went above and beyond. I had a fishing trip the next day and he worked his ass off to try and make it happen, unfortunately there were problems but he worked in the hot sun to get my car fixed... what a great guy!

It was 9AM appointment at Sunday Morning, as oil change was about 2k miles overdue. I need to use my car a few hours later. He gave me on my cell at 8:53AM from my drive way. That is the 1st pleasant surprise. On time service! He said it would take 1 hour or so to change engine oil and rotate tires. Then, at the end of service, he showed me a few of pictures he took, while he worked on my car to give me an overall condition. While I was having a discussion with him for a few of potential problem areas, I liked a way he talk and is doing a business with me. He is a straight talk person. He mentioned to me this and this would not need a repair service now. However, that one needs to be done. I know my car and have been worked on my trustworthy car many years for many parts. He won't try to sell for everything, but only sell what I do need. I agreed his points. I appreciate his honesty and expertise. If I come back again to get service through this yourmechanics.com, I would choose him, definitely. Oh... He may be work only over a weekend, as he works weekday job at other places. If you need to grep him, go ahead to get a service from him for weekend, until he put more hours into weekday service call. Good job Pete!

Peter was great. He is very knowledgeable, diligent, honest and trustworthy. I was definitely skeptical at first, but this is a real-deal service offered at your convenience without having to pay the over-head costs and scams associated with brick-n-mortar shops. I don't freely pass these out, but I highly recommend both Peter and Your Mechanic Services.

Answers to common Subaru Forester questions

Q: 2010 Subaru Forester power steering does not work, battery light is on, smell of rubber from engine compartment
Answered by Mia
It does indeed sound like your drive belt is broken. Your vehicle has two belts: one for the A/C and another for the power steering and alternator. Obviously, if the latter breaks, you no longer have power steering and your...
Q: I am looking at a 2000 Subaru Forester for sale that needs "the timing belt repaired". Advice?
Answered by Jessica
Hello, thank you for writing in. The timing belt keeps the camshaft and the crankshaft running together. Without it the vehicle will not run correctly. If the timing belt is on the vehicle and is in poor condition, you may...

Q: STOP fuse blows when I shift out of park.
Answered by Andrew
It sounds like you have a failure in your neutral safety switch. This switch normally prevents the operation of the shifter unless the key is in the on position and the brake pedal is depressed. I would recommend having your...
