Charles Arrived on time and even sent me a message 30 minutes prior to the appointment to let me know he was on the way. He was able to work in our parking lot. He was quick and gave me an updated on my car. He was able to tell me that I had a pending code and explained to me what that meant. He was great and professional and would recommend to anyone.

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.

Order Alternator from Ebay to install on my 2004 Honda CR-V. Mechanic Charles came on time and install it. We couldn't clear the battery light. Due to the fact the parts I provide, one of them was New Alternator was simply dead out of the Box. But overall Charles did great job on installing my alternator that I provide.

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.
