Josh is the kind of mechanic you always want to work on your car. He truly has a passion for fixing cars and can explain what needs to be done in terms i could understand. He's the kind of mechanic that you can trust. I'm not trying to sugarcoat this but I had a great experience with him replacing my a/c compressor and will ask for him again for my next service needs.

The mechanics themselves are great. But the Your Mechanic business side of things wasn't at their level. The initial diagnostic said I should replace an O2 sensor. I scheduled the appointment to have it replaced. Two days prior to the appointment, 'your mechanic' called and said the initial quote was wrong and that I needed a different O2 sensor which was more expensive. I OKed the different part and when the mechanic showed up, it turned out to be the wrong part for the car and the mechanic said I needed the sensor which was originally recommended. This caused a completely unnecessary delay and multiple appointments which didn't need to happen. I asked the customer service rep why they changed the part recommendation in the first place, and he didn't really have an answer for me. I can't help but think it was an attempt to up-sell me. They did compensate my trouble by throwing in a belt replacement for free and said they gave me another discount as well. So I appreciate that. But in terms of trust and reliability of the business, I'm going to have a hard time vouching for this service as the convenience factor was clearly compromised.

Noe was very professional and arrived in a timely manner. He checked that my repair was required before actually doing the work, and when it turned out it wasn't, he showed me exactly why it wasn't required. To be specific, he showed me the depth of my current brake pads vs the depth of the new brake pads, which saved me a lot of money. He was upfront and honest, and I really appreciated his demeanor.

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.
