Brian showed up ahead of time, Explained exactly what he was going to do, in addition to some extra checks of the fluids, and then proceeded to get the work done quickly. He showed me the parts which had been changed out and what was wrong with it as well. Also offered to dispose of the old parts for me.

Brian did a great job he was extremely thorough with testing and had recommendation for repairs. He called before hand to discuss if there was any concern with the car that I had before even inspecting the car and made sure to notate what he recommended to remedy the issue. He took many detailed photos and provided me with new damages and concerns for the car I had failed to notice myself. Overall fantastic job and look forward to working with him again.

Brian was great. He did the oil change quickly, and was pleasant. Will definitely set something else up later!


on November 11

Extremely knowledgeable and professional. He performed a pre-purchase inspection for me, and actually spent time the night before reading reviews on the type of car I was looking at. He did this to see if there were patterns of frequent problems with this model, in order to pay particular attention to those areas. He called me both before and immediately after the inspection. When calling before the inspection, he inquired as to any personal concerns I might have to help tailor his inspection. He provided immediate and thorough feedback with a very polite and friendly manner. His attention to detail was truly commendable. If I should ever need services again, I'll specifically request this man. With his professionalism and dedication to providing the utmost in service, I'd hire him personally if he were certified with the NASD (National Association of Securities Dealers). Seemed to be a great person and even better mechanic.

Working with Brian Z. was a 10 out of 10 experience. It was my first use of YourMechanic.com, and it will not be the last so long as he's on the case. Brian came by on time and quickly changed out both my rear differential and my power steering fluids. Along the way, he accurately noted the other areas where the car needed future maintenance. Brian's love for this work shines through in his professionalism and abundant knowledge, in particular of Nissan products. I will be asking for him from now on for my car repair needs!


on May 03

Not only diagnosed the problem much quicker than the website stated, but also recommended certain services and upgrades based on my driving habits, recommended local shops, and answered every question I had about cars, my engine, and my repairs needed.


on June 28

This was for my wife's car. I like my first experience with Brian (brakes) that I figured let him do her oil change. Just as happy as the first time. On time, good communication and professional. This is our mechanic now for everything.


on March 09

Really great guy. I was considering selling my car or keeping it. He gave me some great insight into the condition of my car and the potential repairs needed over the next year which really helped me make a decision. Does a great job explaining things. Highly recommended.


on February 25

Very helpful, I had Brian come to my house to fix a valve cover gasket on my Mazda and he quickly examined the real problem which had nothing to do with my valve cover gasket, but could only be fixed in a shop. If you are looking for a mechanic who knows what he is talking about and will not try to fix something that isn't broken, choose Brian.

Brian was extremely helpful in finding out what was wrong with my car (it wouldn't start) and upon diagnosis, quickly fixed the problem. He communicates frequently and made the entire experience pleasurable! Fantastic mechanic!

Brian kept in constant communication with me before and during my service. He showed up a little early, which was perfectly fine with me! He explained carefully everything that he would be doing and warned me about possible other repairs once he took a look. He did not need anything extra, was quick and provided me all post-work information. Brian was very nice and professional and was a great introduction to your mechanic. I can't believe how easy everything was... and performed at my office!

Brian was great.. Brian did a check on my car fluids and checked the window. Turns out it was the notor. Brian explained about getting the part to fix it.


on November 23

Brian showed up 10 minutes early, ready to go. He was knowledgable, friendly and even suggested a couple items that needed to be replaced. I was very pleased with his customer service, and would definitely use him again.


on December 08

Brian was great. Kept in contact and gave me the exact info I needed to make an important decision. I would highly recommend using him and this service. Thx again Brian Jim

He was very professional, calming, and friendly enough. He told me he would try to come back by 4:00 p.m. to install a battery since I had to be at work by 5:00 p.m. He actually came back at 3:53 p.m. Similarly, he said he would come at 9:15 a.m. and arrived a few minutes earlier. That is unusual with people making repairs, in my experience. I am used to waiting for them and having them arrive a half hour after they said they would. I felt very comfortable putting my car in Brian's hands. He didn't try to sell me anything and offered alternative solutions.

Brian was very technical. Very patient meticulous and soft spoken. He just doesn't fix your car, but educates you at the same time. Very pleased with his service. Made sure the work place was clean of any debris before he left. Thank you Brian!


on September 07

Brian did an excellent job. Very polite, and very educated in his craft. He explained everything well, and conducted business very professionally. I highly recommend Brian.


on December 25

Brian is friendly and reliable. He calls as he is on his way so you know when to expect him and he gets the job done right the first time. He also discusses what else your vehicle may need to have done and can rely on his professionalism.


on August 19

Brian was very helpful and did an excellent job replacing my rotors and brake pads. I was glad to hear that he is an expert in Toyota, which is the make of my car. He let me know when he found anything worrisome with my car, including low brake pressure and low brake fluid reservoir. I will be taking my car in to brake check, and will most likely book any needed repairs with Your Mechanic.com.


on August 16

Brian was great! He showed up on time, called me ahead of time to make sure he knew everything ahead of time. He worked really hard and did a great job. We will definitely book with Brian again for future repairs.


on December 29

I can not recall having such a positive experience with an auto mechanic in the past. I would highly recommend" Your Mechanic" in general and Brian specifically. I will use their services again.
