Couldn't ask for a better mechanic. If I could rate him 10 stars or more I would. Truly, he's the best!

Ben showed up right on time as scheduled. He was very thorough checking and diagnosing my car! And he happily answered all of my questions, I don’t know much about cars. I highly recommend Ben! He is such a pleasure to work with.

Ben was so awesome! He quickly assessed what happened to my battery, and during the replacement process, he was eager to answer any questions I had. He made sure to tell me exactly what he was doing when he was doing it. I learned a lot from him. A really nice guy, and my appointment was over in 20 minutes! Will definitely use YourMechanic again.

Ben was courteous, professional and very Informative with all my questions. He changed the battery, added freon and informed me what parts needed to be replaced. Thank you Ben. Your Mechanic is the place to call for on site repairs. Online scheduling is quick and easy and I'm a middle aged woman with no knowledge of car repairs. Two thumbs up for Ben and Your Mechanic.

Did a wonderful job of explaining what was wrong with my car and also what I needed. Will definitely used this mechanic in the near future.

My Mechanic, Mr. Ben Smith is not just a great mechanic, he's also a very nice and engaging person. Very professional and about his business, honest and a good communicator. I really appreciated having him come out to fix my vehicle. Thank you all!!

Ben is the best mechanic that I can across. Ben is very thorough and I can tell that he enjoys what he do. He takes great pride in his work and he was on time. I would recommend Ben for any car services.

Absolutely amazed! I needed a wheel bearing replaced on one of my tires.I booked quickly through yourmechanic.com because the quote was way more reasonable than anything I had been previously provided (searched 3 weeks) and the mobile part made it extremely convenient (no towing fees). I was unable to be home while Ben repaired my vehicle but my fiancee was blown away at how quick, experienced, professional and pleasant Ben was. He repaired my car in less than 30 minutes AND my quote was cheaper than ANY of the surrounding repair shops in my are. I will definitely be a returning customer!

I've used YM several times and have found them to be fair and honest. When I had a problem after a repair that was not inexpensive for them to redo, they honored their warranty. So far, I am quite happy with the value of the services provided.

Ben was great. He was polite, arrived early, and took extra time to make sure issues were fixed where and demonstrate he knew more about the vehicles being worked on than prior mechanics. Ben is going to be my "go to guy" for future service work. I was very impressed.

Ben provided a very detailed report which assisted in purchase of a classic car....Chevy El Camino V8 396 SS. Excellent response time on a short notice. Thanks Ben. -DaMarcus

Ben is outstanding and earned my highest recommendations. His work on my wife's MDX suspension demonstrated that he is a master technician. In addition, he is a friendly and honorable man. Job well done!


on September 27

I had an AC that only worked part of the time: the fix turned out to be something simple, but I'm confident that, were it to have been something complex, Ben would have found the problem and fixed it. He seems like he is very good at what he does, and I wouldn't hesitate to call him again.


on July 14

Arrived early ran inspection, Ben found that the code was the same code that popped up on he visit Monday (07/10). He cleaned to throttle body, etc. Hope this fixes the issue. Ben is kind, social, and fair. He will not add work just to make a buck. Thanks Ben!

Ben was very professional and personable and arrived on time. He replaced the fuel pump in my truck which required dropping the gas tank and got the job done quickly wit no issues.

I will absolutely use Your Mechanic for all my needs. Thank you Ben!! P.S. Thank you for your service for our country! Sharon McCrary - Spring, TX

Very knowledgeable. Too me for a test drive after timing belt was replaced. A small coolant leak was detected but Ben went and bought the sealant and fixed it even though he was late for his next job. Also gave me some pointers and fixed my brake noises in 2 minutes. I will recommend this fine gentleman any day, every day.

Ben was top notch: Courteous, friendly, and professional. He changed out a timing belt and serpentine belt, plus secured a mirror that was flopping in the wind, all in about 4 hours, and didn't charge for the mirror. I'll ask for him next time I need service. The site itself is a Godsend. My elderly mother had taken her Lexus to several places and been quoted over $2,000 at each to change her timing belt. I knew that was high. Through Your Mechanic, we got both her timing belt and serpentine belt changed for $710.83. How could I not want to use this service again?!


on November 16

I couldn't be any more satisfied with the professionalism and quality service provided by Ben Smith. He was so kind and professional and I would recommend him to my closest of friends and family.


on July 11

Car was running rough and check engine light came on. Ben came out, did an inspection and identified that the transmission needed serviced (filter, fluid, and new seal). We scheduled Ben to conplete work next day. Ben came out and took care of us. Great job! Thanks!

Prices are great, the work is done correctly and on time, and Ben was very professional and knowledgeable. I will recommend him and this company to friends and family in the future.

This service is perfect for me as I am usually busy and do not always have time to make it to the shop to keep up on my scheduled maintenance. I appreciate the convenience.

He is very good. I asked for oil change only but he tried to figure out a solution to some other problems of my car even after a long day before Thanksgiving. I would recommend him to my friends without any reservation.


on November 25

Ben was awesome. I am so glad I found your professional service.. I asked for some cards to pass out to my friends in the Houston Mustang Club.. I will call upon your service again. Most impressed


on November 30

We bought an oil change through a daily deal site. I bought it as a way for my wife to get her oil changed without having to go to a shop as we have 2 kids and I work long hours. I ended up being home the day Ben came so I was there for the appointment. Ben called about 30 mins before our appt to say he was on his way, showed up on time within a few mins and was done in about 35-45 mins. It was a completely hassle free experience and Ben was extremely friendly throughout the process. We really couldn't be happier.
