I started my business "Mechanic on Wheels" 15 years ago in Philadelphia. I am blessed to be living in the beautiful bay area now. I have been working on cars for more than 25 years. I work on all makes and models and I will be happy to come to you to help with any car problems you might have. Thank you for looking at my profile!

Whitney did a great job. He ensured that my car is running normal again. He showed up early and completed the work ahead of schedule. I will definitely schedule him again.
Whitney was great.. The dude knew what he was doing! Honestly I was a bit scared doing such a big job outside of a shop.. He came in with all the gear he needed in his van.. And literally not a single drop of oil or fluid on the floor. Total professional.
Whitney was very courteous and knowledgeable about my car. He wa able pin point the areas my car is having issues with and I look forward to setting up a new appointment with him to resolve those issues.
What a pleasant experience! Not only was Whitney able to come earlier than the scheduled appointment (which was wonderful for me since I had other errands to run later in the day), but he efficiently completed the battery replacement. He also did an inspection of the car, and let me know what issues would need to be dealt with most urgently. Whitney explained everything in a way that I could understand, and even helped with another problem on the spot free of charge! Plus, he's got a great sense of humor. (:
I have been a dedicated customer with 'Your Mechanic' for a few years. As always, I received a professional and courteous experience from, Whitney. As a grandmother it is important that my vehicle is running well. Suffice as to say, as a woman, it took me more than 15 years to find a honest, trustworthy, mechanic. I have found that in Whitney and in your organization. It is a pleasure doing business with your organization and to refer people. I hope you treat your employees with the same courtesy they have shown us. Thank you for my receipt. Rosanna 11.06.2015
Whitney was awesome! Super informative and knowledgable about everything he was doing. I felt confident With him working on my car and would recommend him to everyone.
Awesome experience, it was my first time encountering an mechanic besides the ones at the dealer. Whitney was very professional and took the time to explain everything and answer all my questions. Whitney also took a step beyond my expectations and raised awareness regarding some issues and alternatives with my best interest in mind.
I wish I would have crossed paths with Whitney 20 years ago and saved myself the headaches of dealing with other mechanics. I have taken my car in to be serviced for a broken a/c for years and had given up after being taken advantage of FOUR TIMES! I actually decided I would just live without it but I have a baby now and can't subject her to the heat in my car just because I am am tired of dealing with shady mechanics. When Whitney came out to service my car I already had a prognosis and he was there to do the work that it needed--to fix my air compressor for $550. But he decided he would double check to make sure before he got started, and figured out that my compressor wasn't even broken (as the last mechanic insisted). Turns out it was a slow leak and didn't cost me 1/5th of what I was supposed to be charged. But more than saving me money and more headaches, Whitney put my angst at ease. As a single mom, barely making ends meet, life is hard enough. To have someone in a position to easily be able to taken advantage of me, since I know absolutely nothing about mechanics and NEED to have my car for my baby, he could have easily just changed my compressor, and went about his business with me being none the wiser. But instead he showed some pride in his work and his reputation and did the right thing to help us. I will be a client of his moving forward for all of my car's needs.
Whitney was professional and timely. He fixed the issue, explained what he was doing and took care of everything fast. I was leaving town early the next morning and really appreciated being able to get my car into the garage and know that it would be in working order when I got back.
Whitney took the time to perform thorough diagnostics and provided recommendations. He then implemented the big work of replacing the timing belt and more to our full satisfaction.
I appreciate the time attention Whitney gave my car, and I would certainly use him again for servicing my Vehicles. He has a passion for the work that he does. Thanks Whitney
whitney is great, he could pin point the exact location of trouble,and get it done.he is punctual and very respectful,i wish i had known him all these years,i could have saved tons of money.
Very professional. Identify the problem of my car very well. Changed the parts, I feels like driving a new car now. Very good communication. He understand what I need very well. Price is very reasonable. He also checked battery, engine oil, tire air pressure. Give me further recommdation. Overall, I am very happy his service. I am highly recommend him. Mary J.
Very pleased with my experience. Whitney is very professional, found and resolved the problem fast, explained everything he did.
Whitney is a great mechanic. I gotten the diagnostic code from different service. I decided to change out the oxygen sensor as a possible problem. Whitney researched the code and showed me what his reference suggested, which was 3 possible issues. He then he talked me through possible options. However, he let me decide on the solution path that I wanted to take. He was reasonable with his suggestions and seemed genuine in only trying to get me the right solutions to appropriately service my car. I would see him again to follow up on any future issues, and highly recommend him to others.
Whitney is a top class mechanic. He broke down every detail that I needed and made it all very easy to understand. He felt genuine when recommending potential next steps for my vehicle, and he walked me through all of his work so that I felt comfortable and that he could double check everything. I really appreciated how professional, yet personable Whitney is. I would recommend him to anybody.

Whitney has been taking care my 2 cars since 2 or 3 years now. He is a great mechanic and a great guy! I highly recommend his service.
We hired Whitney for a pre-purchase inspection for a pre-owned Honda CR-V. Whitney came on time and was very thorough. He identified some issues that the dealer from whom we are purchasing, had missed in their 125 point inspection. He was very methodical and tested all important points of failure in the car. The overall process took about an hour and we got a very professional inspection report at the end. We were very satisfied with the job done here, and can now confidently make the purchase decision. Thank you for an excellent job.

Whitney came in early not sure how early since I had just woken up. Anywho he came for what I initially was supposed to be a power steer pump replacement, since that's what I thought was the problem. Whitney recommended that he should inspect the car first to make sure that was the actual problem. Immediately I was outstanded by how honest that action was. As it turns out my racket and pinion system was faulty and my power steering pressure hose was the problem as well. I was grateful that he took the time to not only help me but also teach me a bit about my car. In the end I was charged for an inspection since he did not have the parts to fix my car. Still I was thoroughly satisfied and I didn't expect such a wonderful experience.
Whitney is awesome. He arrived on time, got right to work immediately. He finished it within an hour and called me promptly and returned the keys and on his way. Very professional and courteous.

If I could give 11's, I would give them for Whitney. He is professional, friendly, and thorough. I always learn a little bit about my own car when Whitney services it and feel like I am witnessing truly excellent service.
Whitney was incredibly thorough, examined everything, communicated to me everything he found, and took care of the scheduled oil and filter change like a pro.. thank you!
This is my second appointment with Whitney, and he definitely takes care of my car very well.. I had to replace my brake pads, and not did he do it, but did a fifty point check, and filled up air, and smoothened the wheels, and now my car is running like a horse with great gas mileage. And all this for free. You never get such a honest and trustworthy mechanic for you
I was very pleased from the moment Whitney pulled up. Friendly, easy to talk to, professional and informative. This was a very pleasant experience, especially since it was the first time I have used this service and new nothing about it.
Whitney arrived a few minutes early, and we talked about the service, etc. I had told a co-worker about the service and he showed up in time to ask Whitney some questions. He seemed quite pleased after speaking with him. I'll definitely use this service again.
Whitney diagnosed my problem really quickly. He took the time to answer the various questions I had, as well as do some additional checks without my prompting. He seemed knowledgable as well.
Whitney was the answer to a prayer! I'm so glad I followed my intuition when I picked him from the available mechanics (admittedly, the 200+ near-unanimous reviews were pretty compelling). When he finally left my elderly parents' home after going way out of his way to get their dormant vehicle up and running (too long a story to recount!), my visiting sister and I felt that we had made a new friend and were privileged to have spent so much time in his company. We even had a group hug when it was time for him to go. When was the last time you wanted to hug anyone at your local garage or service department?
I apologize for taking so long to write this review. Whitney is definitely my mechanic from now on. He arrived on time at my condo parking lot, he diagnose the car to see if everything I requested needed to be changed, and in fact, I did not need to change everything (my AC was not working and I've got very high estimates to fix it). While taking the engine apart, he noticed a leak on the water pump, so since it was Sunday and the shop did not deliver the parts, he actually went to pick them up himself. When done, he performed another thorough check of the whole car. I am really very pleased with his work and will call him over and over again and definitely recommend him to everyone I know. Thanks Whitney!
Whitney was very kind with my dumb questions, smiled all the way, his number one goal was customer service. Because of him, I cannot wait till I use YourMechanic again! I am a fan of his and YourMechanic's for life!
Unbelievable--we've hired Whitney 3 times and will have him back to do more work. I cannot believe how easy and cost-effective YourMechanic makes the inevitable activity of car repair. We are *thrilled* with this mechanic and this company. Telling all our friends!

Car wouldn't start this morning, on a Sunday. I knew towing would be expensive, so I set up an appointment with YourMechanic online and as luck would have it, got an appointment same day, but not until 7pm. At 5pm, my mechanic David called and asked if it would be ok to come early - of course!
He shows up when he said, was extremely polite, ran the diagnostic and said it was battery. He then charged it enough to get me one more start so I can get it replaced in the morning. In addition, he told me about what it should cost so I don't overpay at the shop.
Between the $70 diagnostic, and what I'll pay for battery and installation, it'll still be cheaper than having it jumped by the shop and/or towed.
