Rocco came to my home to check out my car since it would not start. I did not want to go through the hassle of having to tow it to a repair shop and wait around. I had a problem with my starter. With repairs like this you would think you'd have to go to a repair shop but I'm relieved I was able to have it fixed at my home from someone professional. He came and checked out my problem (which took less than an hour), provided an estimate along with how much time/labor would be involved and the next day came and made the repair. And I was able to save time without waiting around for other customers and cars ahead of mine like at a shop. I'd definitely use the service and call him again in the future :)

WOW!!! I loved the experience of having a mechanic come to my home. He arrived promptly, introduced himself and got right to work. He took his time to explain what he was doing, and answered all my questions. I was so surprised when he told me the repairs were still under warranty (my car is 7 years old/67,000 miles), Wow, now that is a honest mechanic!!!! :) I highly recommend "Your Mechanic".

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.
