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!!

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

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

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 was outstanding.His knowledge,expertise and understanding of knowing exactly what to do was very appreciated. He was on time and worked carefully and neatly while finishing the job in less than an hour. His politeness and professional demeanor are very commendable. I highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of his services.

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.

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!

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.
