Tien was very courteous and showed up on time. After looking at the car he determined additional parts would be required to do the job. It took a while to get a new quote. Not sure if this was Tien's fault or YourMechanic. The parts recommended were pricey and didn't include everything needed to complete the job (Tien uncovered that another pulley was needed but that wasn't in the new quote). I researched it myself, bought the parts on Amazon, and scheduled a different mechanic to come complete the job. Tien seemed a bit rushed and ready to move on to the next job. I think he'd be great on any job that is super straight forward. But if any troubleshooting is required he doesn't go the extra mile like I've seen from other mechanics to see it through to the end.

This is really not Robert's fault but it would have been a perfect experience if this didn't require two appointments since wrong part was ordered. There is no reason not to have the right parts with a VIN from the start.

Jonathan showed up early for his scheduled appointment. That doesn't happen often in life. Ask your doctors office. He was fully prepared for the reported issue with my car. He informed me that the job may take 20 minutes or hours, based on the complexibility of the bolt location and if they were factory standard. Most of the bolts were tightened back in 1983 and had not been loose since. He took almost 2 hours but the job was done correctly. My test drive proved the work to be correct, He will be recommended to others and will be requested to come back for any other repairs needed on my cars

All about Strut Assembly Replacement

The strut assembly, an essential part of your car's suspension system, is attached to the front wheels and is used to absorb road shock, providing a smooth ride. Most cars made after 1995 have shock absorbers in the rear and strut assemblies in the front suspension. Older cars may have shock absorbers at all four wheels. Faulty or damaged struts affect the ride comfort as well as the braking effectiveness. The strut assembly, located in the front or rear of the car, is basically a shock absorber with a spring coil for additional support. The front wheels have the extra weight of the engine and need extra support to absorb shock from the road. The shock absorber has a piston and a cylinder that contains a gas or liquid substance. The spring is attached to the piston. When you drive over a bump, the piston inside the cylinder moves up and down against the gas/fluid and the spring, absorbing the shock from the bump. The strut assembly takes a beating over time, especially on bumpy roads. It will eventually start leaking the gas/liquid, leaving you with an unstable or rugged ride. With worn out struts, it is possible that the tires could lose contact with the road and/or the tires will wear out prematurely.
