Armando was very professional. On top of that, he is very knowledgeable with his craft, so in turn, I learned some things. For my first experience, this couldn't have gone better.

Armando is an awesome mechanic! Very professional and was very pleased with his service, knowledge, and professionalism. We will be booking future appointments with him in the future and I am overall very impressed with the "your mechanic" online service I wish I had know about these services 5 years ago. Aaron

Armando performed a thorough and knowledgeable inspection of the car I would like to buy. I know now how to negotiate price with the seller, and think that I know in detail the condition of the car. Very satisfied!

Armando arrived on time and provided all services included in the 25,000-mile maintenance package efficiently and with great level of detail. His report outlined the status of my car prior and post the service with additional voice notes and service photos. His recommendations to keep my car in great health were reasonable and helpful in planning my next service appointment!

Armando was nice professional and knowledgeable. He explained to me in detail the problem that was wrong with my car and showed me how he was going to fix the problem. He showed up early and prepared. Also gave my car an inspection after he was done which was very helpful!

Armando was knowledgeable, courteous, and on-time. He actually let me know that some of the services I requested were unnecessary, which speaks volumes about him, and YourMechanic. Lifetime customer here!

Armando is a spectacular mechanic! He brought everything he needed to replace my exhaust manifold (I supplied the part)...he worked quickly and communicated everything I needed to know about the work he was doing. He had a good attitude despite a couple hiccups with the part I had ordered and made sure to document everything so that I could refer back to the discrepancies with the company I had ordered the part from. I will certainly be booking Armando again for any future service my car may need and I plan on referring anyone I know to him for their vehicle needs! Thank you for being so wonderful, Armando! You are appreciated!!!

Armando is awesome mechanic! He arrived on time to perform break system flush and started working right away while giving other useful tips about my car. I felt he's very knowledgeable about cars and very friendly person. I already recommended him to my friend's Jeep break pads change. I'm very satisfied with his service and would strongly recommend to any one.

A simple oil change but Armando provided great analysis of the results of the inspection, and then followed up later with the rest of the info I needed. Fantastic.

Armando was excellent. Professional, communicative, on time (early, in fact!), and very honest. I very much enjoyed meeting him and the brakes are terrific. I would recommend him many times over.

Armando's communication was friendly, professional and timely before, during and after the appointment. He was well prepared and had all the parts with him to repair the car. We thought it was the starter but during our phone conversation prior to his appointment, Armando thought it was the battery. He had replacement parts for both when he arrived. He was right, it was the battery and saved us money. On top of that he did an inspection of the engine and cheked out an other issue free of charge. Absolutely great service. He will be our first call when in car repair need. A gem.
