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.

Godwin did an amazing job when he worked on my car. First, he arrived a little early which I greatly appreciate. Godwin's punctuality combined with exceptional mechanic skills resulted in the job getting done significantly faster than I anticipated. Second, Godwin provided me with maintenance tips to help me as a car owner. Finally, Godwin explained all the issues he found underneath the hood of my car. He even chit chatted with me the whole time he replaced my gaskets. Godwin is a cool dude all around. Overall, Godwin exceeded my expectations even though he has a bunch of great reviews. Thanks again Godwin, I will definitely be a returning customer.

Chris did a fantastic job on my car. He even went above and beyond by observing other things on my car and giving me advice on questions I asked that didn't relate to the current job. Thanks so much Chris. Great experience for a first time user of this service. Definitely will use again.

All about Serpentine/Drive Belt Replacement

The serpentine/drive belt or v-belt is a rubber belt that connects the alternator, power steering, and AC to the part of the engine (crankshaft) which transfers the power from the engine to those components. Without this belt, the battery will not get charged and none of the electrical accessory components in the car will work. The serpentine belt and v-belt are also known as "drive belts." Because of the high amount of heat in the engine, the belt can develop cracks over time and eventually break. If the belt breaks, the steering wheel will be difficult to turn and driving will be hazardous. In some cars, water pumps are driven by the drive belts. If the belt breaks, water and coolant needed to keep the engine cool will not properly flow to the engine. The engine will overheat, potentially causing severe damage.
