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.

I used Grzegorz twice now. First time to do a 50K mile maintenance and the second to replace our rear brake pads and air filter. After the first time, he noticed the brake pads and that one of my tires had a bubble in the side wall. When I took the car elsewhere to replace the tire, I asked them to also double check the condition of the air filter and brake pads just to see if they came back with the same recommendations. Turns out they did and YourMechanic was much cheaper to have it done (not to mention more convenient). So that's when I asked them to send him again. He arrives on time and texted me updates through the entire process. Really great experience.

Casey saved me quite a bit of money on parts and labor! My 2002 VW Jetta had the simplest part missing/broken and Casey was able to construct a new one on the spot. Car is driving great, would request work from Casey 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.
