We wonder why the scale doesn't go higher?! This was our first time using Your Mechanic and we were very pleased. Ben called before he came, showed up early. Completed the repair quickly and completely. He demonstrated fantastic manners and a heart of God. We had the final receipt within minutes of completion. We feel like we just gained a personal mechanic! Thanks, Ben!

Tien was fantastic and helpful! Very friendly and professional and put me at ease regarding my car troubles. I have gone thru so many mechanics that steered me the wrong way and making me pay for things that weren't the right fix costing me unnecessary repairs! Will definitely call on him for further fixes on my 2005 AWD Saturn Vue!

isolated the problem, bad wiper motor, and replaced it the next day. Very methodical in his work. Took great care not to damage the car during disassembly and reassembly. Lots of parts had to be removed to get to wiper motor. He knew what he was doing and how to do it. Good Job!!

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.
