2ND appt with Duane. Showed up early again and was finished in minutes. The guy is just awesome. He's the go to guy for anything we need done on our cars. Thanks again Duane!!


on June 25

He is very professional! We'll booked with him for the futurs repairs on our car.


on June 24

As always, Duane is on time and gets the job done in an efficient manner. He is focused on customer safety and good cleanup after the job is done.


on June 25

Duane showed up on time, he was at my apartment an hour before the scheduled appointment actually. He asked about the problem I explained briefly whats causing the issue gave him the replacment parts that I bought and asked him to apply lubricant to the gaskets which came with the parts. An hour later and he finished the job and checked for any leakage then left. All in all he is a punctual person, has a good work ethic and a professional you can count on.

I like Duane he was professional and a down to earth guy. I was surprised how fast he completed the repair. He showed up early did the repair. I'm having him come back to do some other maintenance I need done. I think Duane is going to be my go to guy. Thanks Duane for showing up and being professional. We need more people like you !!

5 stars +. Did an awesome job!!! Came in way below my estimate and even inspected the car for other issues. My dealership wanted to charge me way more. Definitely going to use him again. And he's a really nice guy in top of that.

He clearly explained a problem my car was having and why the quoted services would help fix the issue. He left with me feeling I understood my car a lot better.

Duane was wonderful!! He arrived early and was quick, but thorough. Because he arrived early, he was able to complete the work needed for my vehicle the same day and I didn't have to wait until the next available appointment, which was 7:00 PM the next night! He was personable and honest. Thank you Duane!! My car is running fantastic!!

He replaced my battery very quickly, saved me from towing my Prius. Only have one shot to jump start a Prius. I jumped mine didn't realize it had started and pushed start again!! That was it! required a new battery after my error. Car didn't have time to reprogram and therefore thought itself on and would not jump again. Thanks, Eden

Duane was early my appointment and began to diagnose my car right away. He was extremely knowledgeable about what was needed to repair my car and helped me make the proper decision. I would recommend him to others and will utilize his services in the future.

My bmw 335i was overheating. Duane did the diagnosis, ordered the correct parts and handled the labor. Did amazing work and now my car runs like new. Plus he showed up an hour early. Recommending him to everyone I know that ever needs auto work done. YourMechanic saved me over $3K on these repairs so yes I'm a happy customer.

Great experience. Duane obviously loves cars and knows his stuff. He did a quick job, took time to explain what he was doing, and my power lock works again. Can't ask for anything more.

I am very happy with Duane's service. He is very friendly and professional. He did a very thorough check of my car first and then performed the Thermostat replacement service very methodically and flawlessly. He finished up the job cleanly and top off all the fluids. I would definitely use his service next time.

Duane is the man. Even though the fix on my car was really problematic, Duane went completely out of his way to 5 different shops to get the tools he needed to get the job done.Just goes to show how really committed he is to getting the job done. I would definitely recommend Duane to anyone who wants fast, professional, reliable as hell service.

I was definitely a little hesitant/skeptical about a mobile mechanic to get work done on my car, but that hesitation has definitely gone away. Duane was punctual (actually showed up early), professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. I had initially booked two areas that needed work done, but was able to easily add another job based on symptoms I had described and Duane was able to confirm. He was able to pick up additional parts nearby and get the job done in a timely manner. I will definitely be using Duane in the future for any mechanic needs and would recommend him to others!

Very nice and honest. Other places informed me that my brake pads needed to be replaced, but Duane went out of his way to compare my current brake pads with new ones and discovered they needn't be replaced. Saved me a lot of money and did a very thorough inspection. Would recommend to anyone with any sort of car troubles!
