I've been an automotive technician since 2004. In that time I've gained experience working on Domestic and Asian cars, but specialize in working on European vehicles. Over my career I've worked at major dealerships and independent shops. Providing efficient and thorough repairs to my customers is my top priority.

Charles saved me a ton of money! I had requested a few repairs for my Audi A4 based on recommendations from an auto shop. After inspecting the car, he advised me against some of the repairs as unnecessary at this time. I am definitely going to have him attend to my BMW 330 next.

Charles is very professional and knowledgeable. He understands my car. In additional to the great service he's done, he also told me about car maintenance and its current condition and answered my questions. what's needed to be changed and what not.

Charles is an expert and reputable mechanic. Another mechanic said I needed brake pads and rotors so I booked Charles to replace them, the brake fluid and the valve cover gasket. Charles said the pads had plenty of thickness and that the fluid was clean so I decided to save almost $400 and spend it another day. Now that's an honest mechanic. He also answered all my questions. and was very personable.


on June 21

Charles showed up early, finished the job ahead of schedule, made sure I understood the entire process, and made me feel totally comfortable. I will request him specifically next time. Oh, he was super friendly and courteous too. Thanks Charles!

Charles did a outstanding job replacing my front strut assemblies. It was a tuff job to replace the struts due to rusted parts. Charles is very hard working and knowledgeable. I definitely would recommend him to anybody in need of a good mechanic. Many thanks Charles.

Echoing others, he's very friendly and would explain things in plain English and would answer any question. Like others, I'm planning to book this gentleman again in future for any follow-ups.

Charles is the best. I want to request him to conduct the rest of the work I need done on my car! Just an absolute pleasure working with him. Thank you so much, Charles!

This was my first experience with yourmechanic.com and everything went like clockwork. Charles arrived on time, finished the work to my satisfaction, and spent time explaining the condition of my car. On top of that, it cost me less than half of what the dealer charges for this work. All I needed to do was lead him to the car, leave, go back when he was finished, and sign my name. I plan to use yourmechanic.com and Charles whenever possible in the future.

Charles was timely, courteous, and very professional. I used his services to diagnose a problem with my 2008 VW GTI - Charles arrived in a VW Golf himself. He explained the problem in detail, and seemed very knowledgable/familiar with the car. I would definitively recommend him, and use his services again.

Great experience with Charles. He was polite, professional and communicated well throughout the whole process. It's unfortunate that it was cold and rainy out while he was working, but it never effected his attitude or work performance.

Charles is a really nice guy. He did have to reschedule once but then he arrived on time and did a great job. He replaced my breaks despite the bitter cold. We drove it around the blocks a few times (his suggestion) before he left to confirm everything was to my liking. Nice job.

Charles was great fixed my Dodge 2500 Ram O2 sensors and break cable. I am very happy with the service and will continue using Charles for all my auto repairs. The initial hiccups with the 1st appointment, that were associated with the home office, is behind us now.

This was my second time booking Charles and I absolutely support him 200%! Charles helped me with my differential oil change since I have a pretty old car, and I trust his judgements/recommendations very much. I would be sure to book him if you have any questions or concerns about your car. Charles is the REAL DEAL!
