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.

That is the first time I tried your mechanic and the experience was positive. The mechanic arrived on time. While he was working on the car I was able to do my work. So I saved around 2 hours that I can now spend with my family and friends.

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.
