Ben was great! I thought my alternator was bad but he found that it was the water pump, which was being replaced as part of the timing belt kit anyway. Ben saved me some money! He explained what he was doing, he was very professional and he's a great guy on top of it all. I'd have Ben work on my cars again without question! I'd give him six stars if I could. Thanks Ben!

This is my second service at my home by YourMechanic. I have been very happy with the service. My Dad taught me to do preventative maintenance on my cars, and to check the oil often. I have a 2001 VW Jetta, which I love. 166,000 miles and counting. I check the oil every other time I get gas, as VWs burn hot. Both mechanics from YourMechanic remarked how well I maintain my car.

Robert did a good job on the car, what I like the most is the after service. He called to check on how the car is going and if I need anything. After 1k miles a minor accident happened on coolant leakage. I called him and in 20 minutes he appeared, although it was a weekend, and inspected the car, identified the problem and fixed in in 15 minutes and I was back on the road in less than 1 hour free of charge. I am really impressed with how he backs up his work. I will definitely keep using Robert's services for my car in the future.
