Duane was about 30 min early, which worked for me. He was clean, pleasant, asked the right questions & fid a battery check to make sure my problem really was the alternator. Done in 1 hr. Great!

Duane is the man. He goes above and beyond to help out and make you feel comfortable. He is much more thorough than some of the indie shops I have been to. He takes the time do things like use using gauges to measure play in bushings as compared to indie shops that try to feel it by hand.


on October 26

Came on time (even a little early - good). Knew what he was doing & came prepared. The job was done in very reasonable time, about what was estimated. I would hire him again.

Excellent mechanic. Duane is extremely knowledgeable and very efficient with his work. He is the best mechanic I've encountered in 25 years. Would recommend for anyone to have him service your vehicle.


on October 18

I have used Duane on numerous appointments and on several different vehicles that I own. He always shows up early, does a thorough job and explains any issues so I can understand. He is the only mechanic that I will use now as I trust that he gives me a true picture of my vehicle and what is needed. No up selling like most shops and dealerships. Great guy!

Duane is a perfectionist. He is so knowledgeable and very efficient. I recommend Duane he explained everything to me that was wrong and what he was going to do. My car runs so smooth and quiet. If you need an excellent mechanic Duane is the man. Thank you for everything

Honestly he is one of the rarely found trustworthy mechanics. He really knows everything not just change parts and simple mechanic jobs and he even fixed my broken remote controller for free. I mean if you want a mechanic who just doesn't care about taking your money, it is Duane :) Thanks for being a good person.

Duane diagnosed a difficult hidden problem with my car. His service was great and the price was very reasonable. He worked around my schedule so I was able to get my car fixed and make my commitments to other people. Very courteous.

After attempting to change my own engine mounts, which I was unsuccessful to do, I searched online for a professional mechanic to complete my mess. Duane was assigned as my mechanic. He showed up to my house, I gave him some info about my vehicle, and he immediately began working on it. His knowledge overall was excellent and he got the job done. I am satisfied with the work he did on my vehicle.

Duane did a great job repairing my AC. He was on time and fixed the unit quickly. He did a great job at educating me on the issues.


on September 15

I all my 64 years I have never met or experienced a mechanic of such high standards. Duane ranks highest with me not only as a mechanic but as a solid professional. As a senior quality manager and now COO of a company it was a pleasure to meet, talk and have Duane service my SL500. The car is a 95 and thanks to Duane it's running beautiful. Thank you Duane!

Outstanding mechanic who used every trick he knew to solve my problem, but my check engine light is still on and drivability is still not good. Further work is needed and I will book an appointment with Duane, when I have the money .


on September 01

Duane is a true professional with a lot of integrity. Another mechanic told me I needed a starter replacement and Duane identified the true issue with my vehicle and saved me over $500 in work I didn't need! I will be requesting Duane exclusively in the future!

Our second appointment with Duane; oh how I wish I had known about him and YourMechanic sooner. The hassle of taking my car somewhere was such a pain and, frankly, he's proven to be an extremely experienced and skilled mechanic. Now we're getting ready to have him come out again! Thank you!

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.


on April 29

He was so fantastic!!!! He came ON TIME. Didn't try and pressure sell me! He also was super efficient and got my repair done within 45min. This was the best experience I've ever had with a mechanic! He was also super knowledgeable as well. I have a few other things needed on my car and I'm only going through him.

This is my fourth appointment with Duane and wish I could give him more than 5 stars! Duane is always on time, answers any questions I might have, and goes above and beyond to make sure everything is done right. Thanks again Duane!

Showed up to replace ABS sensor which another technician said was my problem but after inspection showed me the other technician was wrong and my axle was actually cracked and needed to be replaced and he went out of his way to drive to escondido from san diego to get the part I needed and replaced it quick and easy and now theres no more ABS light on my dash all within an hour. Very professional and explains exactly and shows exactly whats going on.


on March 26

Dune was awesome. Realize on the first trip that what I thought was wrong was not what was wrong and came back as soon as he had the part. It had to be special ordered so he set the appointment for 2:15 two days later but he got the part by 11:30 and came then instead, I think he was done in 45 minutes. So awesome.


on March 21

Duane was right on time, fixed my vehicle in no time flat and I'm ready to go take my smog test. I really appreciate that he knows his parts so well he requested a specific manufacturer that works better in my particular make of vehicle. Great job Duane!
