Ben showed up early ahead of the appointment time. He is extremely knowledgeable in what he does and is very polite. He figured out what was wrong with my car and only charged me what I needed for the car to get it running again. Thanks again Ben. I definitely recommend this service and his work for all of my vehicles in the future.

Mr. Ben was ontime and did a great job getting me back on the road quickly! He answered my questions with no problem! It was a great pleasure to have him servicing my vehicle.

Ben is the best. There is no reason to do things the old fashioned way and bring it to a crooked dealer when Yourmechanic and excellent technicians like Ben will take care of you and your cars faster and with better work. I don't have to mention the outrageous costs the dealer expects out of you, so play it safe and just call Yourmechanic.

Another great visit from Ben! The family loves him. Ben is a "precision and accuracy" guy who knows about all there is to know about automotive expertise...and he is the friendliest car doctor I have ever met. I never find mechanics to be as cool as this guy and when it is considered that you get elite work as part of the bargain, I can't see myself going to any other source for help with my vehicle. I won't get as good a deal as if I had just had my work done with Yourmechanic.

Ben was fantastic and figured out what was wrong with my car right away. He was knowledgeable and explained to me what he had replaced. I was extremely satisfied and will continue to use Ben as my mechanic for all future car issues!

Ben was great. He completed a repair that I had attempted, but which quickly got over my head. It was almost beautiful to watch. What took me half a day took him 10 minutes. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Mr.Smith thank you for fixing my car. I am more knowledgeable about my car. My experience was so professional, enlightening and I trust your expertise. You're the BEST.

Ben was fantastic went right to the problem and fixed it I plan on using him in the future instead of a Mechanic shop and I am recommending him to my friends


on February 25

Mr. Smith is definitely a highly recommended Mechanic. If I recommend trusting any mechanic to do the job correctly, efficiently, and quickly, it would be this impressive gentleman. He has an impressive repertoire of skills and knowledge of vehicles. Also, this man served in the United States Marine Corps, which explained his diligence and energy. You want a mechanic who is confident and accomplished? Then Ben Smith is definitely the man to call upon. 5 Star service, 5 Star Workmanship, and 5 Star Customer Satisfaction.


on March 18

He was the best. Very nice. He fixed the problem right away. The best automotive service I ever had. I will call him from now on.


on February 19

GREAT! I was looking into buying a used car and decided it would be wise to have a mechanic look at.I scheduled the appointment to be performed at the dealership but I could not be there. Ben arrived on time and just communicated with the sales rep. When all said and done and many questions later, I decided to pass on the vehicle. I was grateful for Ben's advice, patience, and knowledge. I'm looking at another vehicle and you had better know I'm trusting Ben once again!


on February 02

Very satisfied. Office staff please get your act together and order the right parts the first time. Quality control and effective time management is imperative. Again, your business model could be replicated.


on February 01

Courteous, knowledgeable, and kept in touch each step of the way. The wrong part was ordered and Ben handled things like a champ. I would certainly have no problems recommending.


on April 25

Excellent mechanic. Very helpful and experience. Looking forward to working with him again.

I tell u what, this company is for REAL. Ben got to my house, in 1 1/2 hrs got me up and running. It turned out to be an electrical issue, he found the problem and BAM, I'M ON THE ROAD AGAIN !, $70: is all I was charged GOOD JOB, I'm very pleased.

I could not be happier with Ben's work. He himself was professional and on time, but most importantly he did the work properly. I have sought automotive repair and maintenance from many sources including multiple dealers and I keep finding crooked and/or incompetent work being done, so it is a relief YourMechanic connected me with Ben. Having him come by and work on my car while I take care of my 4 month old and 3 year old daughters was a very big advantage, but the most important asset he brought was his decades of expertise in mechanical engineering. I cannot emphasize enough how hard it is to find someone who actually knows what they are doing. In the midst of a growing family and the responsibilities that come with it, having an honest go-to guy to take care of a large asset like my car is a huge relief. He helps me take care of my other baby.

I highly recommend Ben. He was very timely, professional, thorough, knowledgeable, and in my opinion, a stand up guy! The pre-inspection service was very convenient. He met me at the car lot and the service price was very reasonable. Thanks Ben. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

Ben was Great! Arrived on time, was polite and knowledgeable. Very efficient, done in under an hour. I will likely use YourMechanic going forward. I would highly recommend Ben and the YourMechanic service to friends and family. Or anyone.

Ben showed up on time to replace my alternator and fixed the battery light issue I was having with my car. The guy seems to know what he's doing and answered the questions I had about my car. I was pleased with his service and will use him again in the future.
