This was my first experience with My Mechanic, and Steven represented the company well. He was timely, efficient and put us at ease. When I texted for a quote, the guy reported being from California and was very helpful and professional. He thoroughly explained the process and what to expect. I wasn't enthused about having to give my credit card number over the phone, but I suppose it is neccecary to avoid wasting time and gas for employee's if a customer flakes out. I was far less impressed with the office staff. I'd attempted to postpone the appointment, but was told there would be a late cancellation fee placed on my card. I believe $50. To avoid this, I had a friend wait at my house for the mechanic. I explained I'd be unreachable the following day and that my phone was being erratic about messages. I was assured someone would be here at the specified time. I'd explained I convinced a friend to sit at my house to meet the mechanic. She had things to do, however sat here for two hours, no one showed up. I called the following day to inquire as to what had happened and was not happy about the way the employee spoke to me. When I inquired as to why the mechanic hadn't shown up. I'm not difficult, and understand things come up. but she went straight into defensive, rude about having left a voicemail re. the mechanic not showing up. Ultimately, I ended up rescheduling. I am glad I did, as Steven was great. She'd been so indignant about the mandatory $50 fee when attempting to reschedule the dayvbefore, but I'm more concerned with the skill of a mechanic than whoever handles the phones. The rate was very fair and I will probably use Your Mechanic again.

Jerel was on time and very professional. He let me know there were a couple of things I needed to have worked on for my car, but not in a high pressure way. I would recommend Jerel to others and will re-book again. Thanks, Jerel!

Andy did a great job. Was prompt and actually called and offered to come earlier which I appreciated. I had my car diagnosed at Burnett Automotive but their quote was very expensive Andy quickly diagnosed the problem which was NOT what Burnett said it would be. Andy saved me unnecessary work on my car. I will definitely use Andy and yourmechanic.com in the future!

All about CV Axle / Shaft Assembly Replacement

Axle shafts are commonly referred to as “CV axles” or “half-shafts.” An axle shaft is a narrow, pole-like part that connects a wheel to the gears in the transmission. Axles are part of the system that enables the wheels to rotate. One end of the axle shaft is connected to the transmission and the other end is connected to the wheel. The transmission rotates the axle shafts, which rotates the wheels. Without the axles, the tires will not rotate and the car will not move. Axle shafts are comprised of four components: shaft, CV joints, grease and the boots (grease container). The most common reason for the axle to fail is because of the torn boots (grease leaking out). Without the grease, the CV joints will not get lubricated, dirt will enter the joint and the whole axle will eventually wear out.
