I needed an oil and filer change. Whitney was amazing. He came directly to my office after texting me that he was on his way and another once he arrived....I handed him the car keys...went back to work...then got another text when he was done. So easy, so fast and so well done! I highly recommend Whitney and YourMechanic.com. I like that you can also request a mechanic you feel comfortable with and trust. I need other work done to my car and I will ask for Whitney.

He came around 30 earlier than usual but can't complain about that. The appointment was to replace one oxygen sensor but after it was replaced the check engine light was still on. Apparently the other half of the sensor pair at the front (the sensor I known was at front) and since one sensor affects the other... well common sense(?) dictates when one is having problems the other would too. Mr.Otiz explained nicely and I think I was half expecting something to pop up because I wasn't that surprised or upset. I paid more than I planned since two sensors instead of one needed to be replaced but reality is what it is. If I was charged for the sensor readings that would have ticked me off (some mechanics do that) but no such thing has happened and that was good.

Whitney came to change my alternator per my request, however upon inspection he determined that it was not necessary to do so. The price i paid ended up being about $150 LESS than i was originally quoted. I am very pleased with the fact that even though he was going to be making less money for his visit he was honest and told me it wasn't necessary instead of just changing the alternator anyway as i know most mechanics would have. I am very pleased with yourmechanic.com and can honestly say that i don't see my self taking my car to a mechanic in a shop ever again. Thanx

Whitney was amazing and honest guy. Hard to find these type of mechanics now-a-days. He explained brake related things, which is well appreciated. He did not push to change rear wheel brake pad as they still had pad that can work safely till next oil change.

He sticks to the job and is very honest in his profession. I have asked him to check my struts but he found that something else which is less expensive than the struts are causing the problem. I have decided to keep hiring for fixing my car.

Whitney arrived about half an hour earlier than my scheduled time. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, personable, and patiently took time to explain things as well as educate me, as I'm a complete noob regarding automobiles. He's quite trustworthy, and I would not hesitate to contact him again in the event that I needed repairs on my car.

He went above and beyond to address the issues that were going on in the car. He was very easy to talk to, and made me feel confident that the job was being done properly! The best mechanic I've had--I've already booked an appointment with him later this month based on the quote he provided.

Whitney is simply amazing. His wealth of experience makes it easy for him to diagnose a problem. I was trying to replace my rotors on my rear wheels but when I tried to depress the pot on the caliper it would not do so. The manual did not give me the right information either. Whitney took a few minutes and figured out how to depress the pot to install the new brake pads and clips in an instant! You are fortunate to have such a conscientious and talented mechanic working for you. I highly recommend him and my friend is going to have him put pads on his front brakes next week.

I had an oil change, filter change, and diagnostic done for my car, and it went decently well. The problems that occurred were understandable, and though they did affect my opinion of the experience, I would probably use the service again if I do have enough time and the price is right. While Whitney was late to the appointment, he made sure to contact me by telephone in order to make sure I knew what his ETA was and why he was late. I wasn't pressed for time so it didn't matter to me that he was late, but I can see how this would negatively affect someone's plans. Outside of that, there was some problem with my address as well, but he was still able to find me eventually. I'm glad that he came to the appointment at least, and though there was a problem with the electronic app when he tried to remove the oil filter, he honored the original price quote and did the work that I had requested for the same price. Because of these few things, I felt that the experience itself could have gone better, but the work was done and he properly diagnosed other problems with my vehicle. I had already gotten some information about my car from another place when I bought it, so it improved my opinion of his trustworthiness as a mechanic when he diagnosed the same things. Having a second quote was helpful, and knowing that someone who has already taken a look at the car would be able to service it again is helpful. Overall, I think Whitney knows what he's doing as a mechanic, and maybe he just had an off day when it comes to scheduling and waking up/being on time. Thanks Whitney, for doing the oil change and filter change for me through yourmechanic.

Whitney was very professional from preping to finish of this service. Me and my son (17 years old) were very impressed with his technical and mechanical knowledge of the problem. He was approachable and very patience and thoroughly examined the problem and best of all he explained things in plain language that me and my 17 year old son understood. Thank you Whitney and I am surely will use this service again and again and will recommend this to my BMW friends. Thank you. Lisa K Fakatene

As usual, Whitney was very honest with explaining what my car needs and doesn't need. Some other car mechanic shop gave a $4000 quote in total to "repair" my car. First, Whitney told me that I can get a much better quote from Your Mechanic which was around $900 for the same repair. It turned out that my car didn't need any of those repairs. Whitney honestly explained me that the quote from the other mechanic shop was a scam and I didn't need those "repairs". At the end he only charged me for the inspection. I strongly recommend Whitney. I'll be always a faithful customer of Your Mechanic because of Whitney.

Whitney is awesome! He is an expert (25+ years), super professional, very friendly and helpful. He diagnosed my problem within about 2 minutes and set a plan to fix it. I was able to watch him work, so I increased my mechanical knowledge as well. I will never use another mechanic service again! I finally found a mechanic who I trust and who makes it super easy for me, all a better price than any shops I have been too.

This guy is awesomeness personified. Friendly with a real no-job-too-small get-it-done attitude. Showed up on time and made my 10 year old car feel like new. Performed scheduled services faster than estimated. ALSO went above-and-beyond finding and fixing (at no additional charge) a bunch of little things that make a difference in how it feels to own the car (reattached a loose cosmetic panel, diagnosed, found, fixed loose air intake hose, secured loose radiator cap, restored corroded battery contacts, ... I could go on all day).

He performed a test drive after the service and took photos of my car for my records. I will definitely be calling on Whitney again for all our car mechanic needs. Very reliable, two thumbs up!

It is great that he could come to where I work to do the work the car. I can't tell how well the work was done as I am not a mechanic and I have not really driven the car after he finished the work. I would think it is hard for anyone to evaluate a repair so soon after the repair was finished. You are asking for this evaluation literally minutes after he finished.
