Arrived early and worked on my car. He explained everything in detail. Very professional and courteous and even gave recommendations for future service. The service was very fast and I would highly recommend Duane for all your service needs. Thank you Duane and Your Mechanic.

on April 15

very happy with my first experience using your mechanic, Duane did a good job diagnosing the issue with my car, thank you and yes i will use the service for now on

on April 07

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!

on March 31

Duane is very knowledgeable and was willing to explain to me everything he was doing. Was extremely professional and on time. Its nice to have my monte back up and running. Thank you

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 24

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.

Duane was wonderful, he explained everything and my car is up and running and never ran better. He is a great mechanic and I will definitely ask for him again.

on April 01

Great service! I highly recommend Duane. He's always on time, friendly, and very professional. He is patient and answers any questions I may have.

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!



Lexus CT200h
on April 20

Knowledgeable, fast, curtious, punctual, kind. Best experience with a mechanic I've ever had. Most recommendable mechanic around.

on March 20

Duane was pretty amazing. Fast and knowledgeable. He fixed a problem created by another mechanic and knew what could be wrong even before touching the car. It's great to finally meet someone who is an expert mechanic.

on March 18

Duane was on time and got right to work. He was finished in no time, and I was on my way. I love the convenience of Your Mechanic and I'm glad to call Duane "my" mechanic!

on March 18

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!

on March 10

Completely changed how I will view mechanic service in the future. This is EXACTLY how I always wanted service at a shop to go, and I got it at my house. Duane was awesome. Showed up ahead of schedule, didn't waste time, was very professional, and knowledgeable.

on March 10

Duane was a few minutes early, very knowledgeable of my transmission\speed sensor problem, explained my options in detail, & test drove the repaired car - all within one hour for under $300! I can't imagine how much more transmission service at a dealer would've cost me. I booked another appointment with Duane for transmission fluid service\maintenance to replace the burned fluid.



Suzuki SX4
on March 10

Duane is a really nice guy. He got a new water pump installed on my Suzuki in a few hours while I was at work. Very easy to deal with, communicative and trustworthy. Already recommended him to my coworkers.

on March 06

Dwayne is one of the best mechanics I've came across maybe the best. He was very helpful and came immediately the next day after he had replaced water pump the day before on my 2006 Toyota Matrix because leak still was still there . He fixed it for me I might add problem was not of his negligence. I will be recommending him to more of my friends and would use him again. Duane is the most honest mechanic I have ever met. So your mechanic.com. better treat him right he's definitely a keeper. Thank you Duane for everything

on March 04

Once again this was the best/easiest appointment by far for my Jeep. I live at an apartment complex and was further down the road and he even moved her closer :D I really appreciate the heads up about some things I'm looking at 6 months from now so I can start planning her repairs/replacements NOW instead of being surprised. Thank you Duane!!!!!

on March 04

I took my car for a test ride Saturday. The brakes sometime will not respond when I press. I'm sure Duane will correct the problem on his next visit o n March 29. Please inform him of the problem. Thank you

on March 25

Volvo XC60
on March 01

Top notch service from Duane. Very professional, knowledgeable and took care of my problem within the indicated time frame. Will definitely use him again!

on February 25

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.



on February 21

Duane is completely professional. Finished the job quickly (actually 2 hours faster than plan). Replaced 4 sets of rotors and break pads. Just a nice guy you can trust your work on your car!



Honda Civic
on February 19

Duane did an fantastic job on my 2006 Honda Civic. Duane arrived on time at 7AM on Sunday morning. I was interested to see how long replacing the starter would take because the axel needed to be removed. Duane was able to do the job in the time that was estimated on the quote. Duane has a great character and easy going attitude. I give Duane 5 stars and will keep requesting Duane in the future.

on February 18

Duane was very helpful and got to the point on what ever was wrong with my truck. And got it done in a timely manner. Did not beat around the bush. Tells you how it is and is personal about it. I will continue having him as my mech for any other issues with my vehicals. THANK YOU



Ford Escape
on February 17

Duane was very professional and an expert on cars. He explained the complexity of me in a way that I understood very clearly. Would recommend him to my friends and family.

on February 17

Duane was fantastic; seriously. Quick, efficient, professional and friendly! Who knew! Also, you can learn a lot about someone by how they treat your kids; I got pulled into a call (I work from home) and our 10 year-old "escaped" and went outside and peppered Duane with all sort of questions about cars and tools and everything and Duane was simply wonderful with him. We've already requested Duane to come back and do some work for us on one of our other cars.

on February 14

By far the easiest appointment ever - I was at work so someone waited at my apartment with my Jeep. I got text alerts through the whole thing, and a receipt almost instantaneously once the work was complete and it was even a bit under the original quote amount. I called had called (in a panic) on Sunday afternoon, they scheduled according to my availability, and Duane got in, got the job done, and looked at some other things I might need to address in the future and their cost so I'm not looking at any big surprises. I'm never going back to another service.

on April 23

Great experience as always. This is my 4th appointment with Duane and he is professional and thorough.



BMW 325i
