Busier-than-usual traffic conspired against punctuality: a minor point, and easily forgiven. Service was much faster than I expected, and YourMechanic's convenience remains unsurpassed.

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

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 !!

On time...friendly, efficient and clean. Just a wonderful experience all around. He had restored my confidence in this service

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.

on May 27

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!!

on May 25

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.



Toyota Prius
on May 24

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 excellent. On time and very knowledgeable and informative. The man knows his cars! He did the diagnosis and corrected the issue. I was very pleased with his findings and his knowledge. He was very courteous.

Duane, was great! This was my second appointment with him and he came on time. Work is done and most of all, my wife is happy, so I'm happy too.

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.

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.

Duane does great work, I recommend him to anyone in need of a great mechanic. Duane is very knowledgeable, and thorough. Duane explained to me step by step what he was doing to my car and why it was important to get it fixed. Duane was on time and ready to work, he had me on the road in no time. Great job thank you. I will book Duane again.

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.



Honda Fit
on October 31

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.



Toyota Camry
on November 20

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!



Toyota Avalon
on December 03

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!
