Had him do a Pre-Purchase Inspection on a 93 Bronco, he gave great detail and even told me all the accessories it came with. Currently in the buying process. Will recommend!

Carlos is so amazing! He is very efficient yet thorough, and will tell you flat out whether or not he thinks it is a good deal. He gave me advice on smaller maintenance strategies, shared his knowledge of dos and donts, and helped me figure out some specific features. I also got to sit with him in the car while he drove it around, which I really liked. He explained what he noticed and felt, and why he was doing certain things. Having Carlos check it out made me feel much more confident in my purchase, and I felt a lot less nervous taking the leap. I plan on calling him back up down the line for anything I need. In the end, I was able to drive (not walk) away in an amazing 2003 Mercedes Benz SLK320. I really appreciate his help and advice.

Carlos was very professional about taking care and diagnosing my vehicle. He informed me the starter was getting ready to go out and I should consider replacing it.


on August 29

I had my concerns about the results of my car after my first appointment with Carlos but after my follow up appointment with him I have been reassured that he has the best interest of my car in mind. He is knowledgeable, professional, and willing to do what it takes to satisfy his customers. He listened to my concerns, he made me feel like I was part of the plan for a solution, and he went over everything he had in mind before deciding upon a course of action. I am very pleased with his work and hope to continue a professional relationship with him in the future.

Carlos was very helpful and descriptive about the diagnostic on my car. He showed me how and why the issue was what he said and he even told me how to best get it fixed at an affordable price.


on April 15

He's an expert in his profession,very knowledgeable on car repair. He has good respect towards his customers. He fixed the problem on vehicle in less than an hour. He arrived on time for my schedule appointment. Yesterday I had our cadillac schedule for a 1000 oil change at Firestone,they kept me waiting for 4 hours. I finally left Firestone at 2pm,I was not happy. Carlos out perform Firestone big time. I'm never going back to Firestone.

Carlos is very competent and flexible He also has a rare quality in that if he makes a mistake which is rare he will admit it and fix the problem There are few mechanics that will do that So you can trust him


on December 28

Carlos is one of the best mechanics that I have dealt with for some time . He reminds me of my late uncle who was certified as a Top Flight Automotive Mechanic . Carlos's diagnostic ability is exceptional .


on April 02

He identified something about the rotors/brakes that led me to cancel a purchase. Both Carlos and dealer had differing opinions on it but I took Carlos's words. Might have saved me a few hundreds dollars.


on January 02

As a first time car buyer and car novice, purchasing a car can be a very overwhelming process. Having Carlos as my mechanic for the PPI was exactly what I needed as he was not only thorough in his inspection, but explained the importance of each of the different attributes of the car he was inspecting. Also, by providing an objective assessment of the cost of repairs that would need to be done, I was able to negotiate a lower cost on the vehicle by justifying the request. Thanks Carlos!

Carlos called ahead of our appointment and arrived on time. He did an excellent job of replacing all 8 coils on the engine, some of which were difficult to get to. He was amiable, explained what he was doing, and offered good maintenance suggestions. Carlos is a very good mechanic.

Carlos is a excellent and goes up and beyond his work. My car literally could not more beacuse of the wheel studs were stripped and broken. I was out of a car for a month and was ready to say forget it. He assured me that my car wasn't in a worse shape then the shops made it out to be. All the extra things I need that the shops said I just had to have before touching my car. He came and fixed my car up like it was no big deal and saved me a ton on money. I guess he can relate that everyone works hard and dont crap out money for something so minor that the other places cost an arm and leg for. I will recommend his work to anyone I come across. I will be booking all my appointments with him for now on. Thanks. Carlos for saving my sanity and car 😀👑

Knowledgeable, down to earth, honest and a nice person. Carlos helped me with a pre purchase inspection that allowed me to buy my car with confidence.

Carlos did great and thorough job not only fixing an issue, but also communicating with both parties: customer and company; getting extra mile requesting needed additional parts, rescheduling an appointment, etc. Hope to have my cars next service with him. He will be highly recommended.

Carlos did a great job changing out my fuel filter even though the bolts were badly stripped. He went above and beyond to help me diagnose some other starting issues that I am having with my vehicle.


on October 08

Carlos has the experience and temperament that you hope for when you book a mechanic. He's very professional, knowledgeable, and is quick to figure out the difficulties in a job and complete it flawlessly. We have used him a couple of times and he's come through on some tough repairs and will stay as long as it takes to get the job done. Couldn't be happier.


on October 08

Great experience. This was a tough repair as Carlos had to replace a passenger side window motor and regulator and basically disassemble the door to get it done. Perfect job, window glides up and down smoothly and it looks like the door panel was never off -- fits tight, no looseness, just like it came out of the factory. A+++++

Carlos is amazing! I booked him online for a pre-purchase inspection of a used car. He contacted me beforehand, and very punctuate. I was not on the spot and he checked every detail of the car and produced the report for me. He also gave me his estimation of the car's value. I bought the car thanks to his report. The whole process is very smooth. I will surely come to Carlos again if need a mechanic again I highly recommend Carlos to everyone in the area.

Carlos, was extremely knowledgeable and very personable... a very easy person to chat with and had a deep understanding that obviously comes with experience. I very highly recommend him with any car issues you may have.


on June 14

Carlos was very professional, helpful and friendly! He took his time to evaluate my 1996 Toyota Corolla, to come up with the best solution for me. It turns out my alternator wasn't the problem it was my engine that needed replacing. Not knowing much about how an engine runs/worked, Carlos was kind enough to show me on his phone how it worked and what had caused my engine failure. He suggested many useful options for me after we figure out what was wrong with my car. That is what I call a great Mechanic! He was honestly and genuine and only charged me for an engine inspection instead of replacing my alternator which would have been $186. Thank you for your great service, Carlos! Keep up the good work. - Susanna S.

I was initially a little worried about doing a pre-purchase inspection at the dealer's site. However, Carlos allayed all my fears -- he was punctual, thorough and communicative. He went above and beyond and answered all my questions well after the service appointment. The pictures he provided were thorough, and he found a lot of damage that wasn't by the dealership.

I will definitely call Carlos again if we have any other car issues. He has been around for awhile and obviously knows what he is doing. We rescheduled because it was way too hot to be working outside and he was very flexible with setting a new appointment time. He showed us the new part and even recorded the sound of the dysfunctional starter so we could hear how much better is was with the new one. Very satisfied with his work.
