My first experience with Jose was outstanding. This last time things feel down a bit on the communication side. And it appears that YourMechanic fell down on gettin JOse the necessary parts in time for him to meet his scheduled time. Jose could do a btter job in staying in touch about such needed chsngs in schedule

I can put positive imput about Andrew but was not on location, but the communication from Andrew was timely and informative and judging by what the dealer had to say he seems to be very thorough.
