Carlos was very knowledgeable and explained exactly what he was doing. Due to prior issues with yourmechanic, I really appreciated Carlos’ professionalism.


on October 03

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 May 10

Carlos has mastered the ability to be social and meticulous, combined with an extensive knowledge base. My pre-purchase inspection validated my own inspection. As a mechanical engineering, I really appreciated his skills. And yes, he's my go to guy for any future work, and I will definitely refer him.

Carlos was very diligent and worked on my car until he fixed it . He was very professional and put me at ease with his knowledge and acumen. I would recommend Carlos as he maintains high standards to make sure his work is completed and customer fully satisfied.

Carlos was great. He listened carefully while I described what the problem was and he did a thorough inspection. I feel confident that he diagnosed the problem correctly and we scheduled another appointment for him to come out and fix the problem- which ended up being a faulty starter.


on March 04

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.

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.

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 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.

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 .

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

Carlos got my old 66 Chevy running again. He identified the problem right away and was professional, courteous and efficient. I will call for him anytime I have a problem . Thank you Carlos!

Carlos is great mechanic. He was right on time, and explained very carefully the reason that my check engine light was coming on intermittently. He is very easy to talk to, and very nice. I would highly recommend him.


on November 16

Carlos has been very accommodating - was here with less than 24 hours notice when both cars broke down at the same time. Stayed until both complex problems were diagnosed and will repair once parts available, much faster than taking - probably towing - would have been if we had to take the cars in for repair. Will update when repairs complete -confident this will be soon.


on November 15

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.

I am usually skeptical about mechanics since their job is to sell their expertise, but Carlos showed up with a vibe that he was ready to get the job done. With excellent troubleshooting skills and professional grade tools, he was able to find the problems to my car quickly and explained every step of the way. I could not be happier with service.

Carlos was on time, friendly, experienced and knowledgeable. I would recommend him and look forward to using his services in the future on my other cars. Thank you Carlos.

I booked an appointment with YourMechanic to have the rear brakes on my 2003 Toyota changed and they sent Carlos. Not only did I get a competitive rate but Carlos, the mechanic who did the job, was great. He took the time to explain what needed to be done, was thorough in his work and after the new brake pads were installed, we drove the car around the block to make sure the brakes were working as they should. He also did the requisite exam of the car, e.g. checking the fluid levels, and did it with thoroughness and explained his findings. For someone who doesn't know a lot about cars, I appreciated his willingness to take the time to explain things and to answer my questions. Great job, Carlos!

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.

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.

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.


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+++++


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 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.


on April 16

My experience was a very good one, Carlos answered all my questions and was very informative and helpful, l would be confident to refer him to family and friends.
