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.

Xavier was on time, friendly, personable, and professional during the entire process. He kept me informed throughout the repair, taking the time to point out not only ebay he was doing, but what i need to keep in mind for future maintenance on my car. His fast work, upbeat personality, and excellent pricing will keep me coming back for all of my future repair/maintenance needs. Thanks so much!

All about Ball Joint Replacement (Front)

Ball joints are a part of your vehicle's suspension system that connect the steering knuckles to the control arms. A ball joint is essentially a flexible ball and socket that allows the suspension to move and, at the same time, the wheels to steer. Cars and trucks will have multiple ball joint assemblies depending on their type of suspension system. Like any other suspension component, ball joints will eventually wear out and become loose. Excessive play in the joint can affect wheel alignment and tire wear. Loose joints can also cause suspension noise (typically a "clunking" sound when going over a bump). If a ball joint fails, the suspension can collapse, causing a loss of control of the vehicle.
