I was very skeptical about using this site, would they send someone knowledgeable, reputable, etc. etc... I was very pleased to see that not only did Carlos arrive on time, he was 20 minutes early!! He introduced himself and we discussed the problem my car was having. Carlos came prepared with part in hand and all necessary tools to complete the job. He did his 50 point inspection and took pictures, all the while explaining what and why he was doing things. Carlos had the installation of the alternator done in record time. He made suggestions on future services I would be needing to get done, and wrote it all up in his detailed report. I would Highly recommend Your Mechanic and will be using the service and requesting Carlos again!!

Michael arrived well within the interval for the repair. He was scheduled for 145, showed up at 155. The control arm repair went well - no issues It took me eight hours to do it myself on the drivers side He had the passenger side done in two And the ride of the car is greatly improved However I also had him replace a headlamp bulb in our front headlight that had blown out On a chevy Malibu its a very tough job You have to remove the front bumper to do it He replaced it fine, but missed the fact the connector was bad and shorting out the bulb The new bulb blew out two days after he put it in the new ones I wish he had looked over the unit more closely I took it back to our regular mechanic who found the problem quickly So yes the work was done, and done less expensively than the garage, but I had to have it done at the garage anyway

Luis presented himself as a professional mechanic; he explained each step that he performed and answered all of my questions. He called me prior to his arrival which gave me time to prepare for his visit. The experience was excellent and I will definitely refer him to my colleagues.

All about Alternator Repair

The alternator is the component that charges the battery in your car. When you use electrical components in your car (stereo, lights, etc.), the battery loses power. The alternator recharges the battery, replenishing the lost battery power. The alternator is located in the engine compartment. If the alternator is not working properly, your car will only stay running for as long as the battery has power stored. Once the battery loses power, your car will not start. Normally, a malfunctioning alternator will turn on the battery warning light or will have a low volt gauge reading.
