Will was very professional. He kept us informed of the status of our service. The front brake pads& rotors were replaced with no problems. However, Will discovered he was provided with the wrong brake pads for the rear. He thoroughly explained the problem to us. He put the car back in drivable condition and returned 3 days later with the correct brake pads. The car is now good for another 60K miles! Will was knowledgeable, neat & efficient.

A++ Highly recommended! Bryce was very professional, knowledgeable and punctual. He explained to me in detail exactly what he did and showed me the parts he replaced. I will definitely be booking Bryce for my next appointment.



Whitney was obvious exsperienced and knowlegeable of the problem. His actions was that of a true profesional



I have to be honest, this was the first time that, I have EVER felt 'at-ease' around an auto mechanic. Jonas was thorough and straight forward with me about the issues; gave me a quote directly after doing the diagnostics on the car and, as it turned out, it cost me less than the original estimate. When does that ever happen with auto repairs ?? He was friendly, informative and knowledgeable. You folks made the whole experience convenient and painless. I'm "sold" on the "Your Mechanic" concept. I'll probably never take my car again to a traditional mechanic !! Jonas was a pleasure to deal with !
