Hello, I’m Michael R

(69)

Hi. I am Mike. There isn't a car or problem that I cannot fix. After working on cars for 30 plus years, I have seen it all. I am a smog specialist with a lot of experience dealing with electrical problems in cars (check engine lights, wiring problems). If you need a top notch mechanic who will go above and beyond to help you, book me and I will get it done.

Michael was great to work with! He was professional and clearly explained what we needed. While you never hope to need car repairs- if and when I do I will definitely use Your Mechanic and hope I get Michael. Todd

Michael is THE MAN! After having my water pump break on my VW, I was looking at a steep repair bill with a typical mechanic/garage. Good thing I checked out YourMechanic, because this great service was able to save me $400 on what I would have paid at a typical repair shop. Michael was an incredible resource and provided EXCELLENT service. Specifically, my HOA was not pleased I hired YourMechanic to do the repair in my apartment garage, but Michael handled the situation like a true professional. Instead of it becoming an issue, he found me an alternate location to have the car towed to so he could finish the repair. Amazing service. I couldn't be happier and I can't wait till you guys come to SF fulltime!

After the long delay in getting my check engine light issue fixed, I called up to complain. Next day I got a call from Michael and he was going to come over to fix it himself. He came over, rediagnosed the problem to double check and fixed it. He called me again to check that everything was taken care of. I'm happy now. This guy knows what he is doing!

He arrived at 3 pm sharp, very prompt. He completed the work in 20 mins as estimated. Explained to me what the issue with the sensor was before fixing it and showed the computer readings after fixing it to show the improvement. He is a Genius, totally would trust this mechanic.

The sheer convenience of scheduling the service and telling YourMechanic where my car will be on the day and at the time of the appointment. Mike showed up on time and finished very fast! While it was only an oil change, it was my test to see how the service actually worked. It worked! I plan to add the other three cars in my family to the list of vehicles maintained and serviced by YourMechanic.com immediately. There isn't anything that comes close to their service. Heck, they come to you wherever you are!!! Thank you Mike and YourMechanic for simplifying my life when it comes to maintaining my automobiles!

Even though Michael ran into problems with taking the brake booster out, he acknowledged the issue and acted very professional. He took my car to the dealer, got it fixed there at no extra dime for me and constantly apologized for the inconvenience. It was very professional and polite of him to do so. I'd highly recommend Michael!

Michael is an awesome guy! He arrived for our appointment on time. He quickly diagnosed the problem (which, other mechanics were not able to!) and came up with a solution. He definitely knows his area. He explains the issue clearly so you understand what's going on with the car. He tested out his theory to show it to me that his solution would fix the problem. Overall I was quite impressed with Michael's diagnosis capability.
