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.

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.

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.

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!

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 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 was very professional, methodical, and did an excellent job. He was also conversant and friendly. I highly recommend him.

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.

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 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 19

Carlos was very knowledgeable and did the job right on schedule. One item needs clarification; If your company recommends you replace something and it turns out that it does not need replacement. You should not replace it just because you erroneously recommended it. and if you do, you need to reimburse customer for your error. I think Carlos was doing what he was instructed to do thus not sure how to avoid your "wrong" recommendation or keep a job from getting done/installed unnecessarily.

Carlos was helpful in explaining the repair before and after the job. We had a good time chatting during the service. I love how personable he was as many mechanics I have used over the years have not been very warm and educational. Thank you!
