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!

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.

Great job. On time. Very professional and friendly.

Within a short time, Duane diagnosed my problem. I had feared it was the water pump and he confirmed that. I mainly feared the cost to be at the very least double what I heard from his quote. He was a pleasure to talk to and no upselling like most mechanics. 100% will use him again if any of my cars have any issues.

Very efficient, kept in touch with me on his anticipated arrival time and updates while working on my truck. This was my first time using this Your Mechanic service and felt Duane had a great wealth of knowledge and he was trustworthy. Easy process to line up the appointment and go over with Duane what was needed and not needed. Thanks again and highly recommend.
