32 years of experience
Washington, DC (Hagerstown, MD)

I've been an automotive technician for 30 years and have worked with BMW, Lexus, and Toyota dealerships, as well as Exxon and a gas station. I've performed a wide range of jobs, from regular maintenance and repairs to complex diagnostics. I pride myself on going the extra mile when I accept a job and I love to figure out tough problems.

Emmette is very friendly and competent on his job. He finished the job way ahead of estimated time and the rest of the time left he devoted in performing a thorough check up of our car's system and informed us of any needed services.

He looked like he could do the job and I wasn't disappointed. He was on time and was very cautious and methodical. I left him with the car, came back and it was done. Audi is not your everyday day but he did a pretty good job on it. I always get charged for point check at the dealer, not this time. Yeah, he took a lot of pictures. I'm satisfied with this one.

Emmette was fantastic! He arrived early. He changed my one of my ignition coils and all spark plugs. When doing so, he showed me an oil leak seeping into the plugs which he explained caused the short. A different repair shop I went to two days prior advised e to change all coils and plugs at a price of $1,100, They never once noticed the leaking oil under the failed coil (and all others). When my car sputtered a bit on initial start up, Emmette insisted I take it for a ride while he waited for my return. He did so to ensure that the repair worked and I was satisfied. Emmette also inspected my entire car on his own accord. He sprayed a squeaky door, adjusted my tire pressure which was excessive (55 lbs of pressure instead of 32 in all 4 tires. This excess was done by a dedicated "tire" shop when they put my new tires on...What the heck!). He also fixed a bent gas cap (which is likely the cause of 2 EVAP leak codes). He did so at no charge, whereas the other shops wanted to replace major EVAP parts at yet another $1, 500. So far, no EVAP code has returned. I was a bit apprehensive having an unkown mechanic outside of a physical shop do the work on my BMW Z3. However after my exceptional experience with Emmette, I'm going to hire him to replace an expansion hose and to further diagnose and fix the oil leak he found.

Emmette is great a great mechanic. He did not rush through the procedure. He took time to check my car thoroughly and cleared all my doubts. Would go extra 50 miles if I had to , to have my car serviced by Emmette. Thank you.

Emmette was great from start to finish. Received a text message when he was en route; one when he arrived; was quick to do the new battery installation; was happy to wait while I did a test drive; completed Your Mechanic's car checklist without being asked; and inquired if there was anything additional things that needed to be checked. He was very professional. Highly recommended.

on July 21

Emmette was very professional and gave a great follow up diagnostic. I felt like my car was in good hands with him, I will definitely book him again for any other needs.

Emmette was professional and pointed out where work didn’t need to be done that I had previously been told needed to be done. I appreciate his honesty and good work!

on July 05

Emmette is a true professional! Not only did he arrive 30 minutes early but didn't mind that I arrived 10 minutes late due to traffic. He completed the service and provided me options. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing car service.

on July 18

Emmette was awesome. He was early to the appointment and performed the job in less time than required. I was very surprised. He did an inspection of my car and let me know of other things that has to be repaired. I was very pleased with his service and I will be requesting him again for the next service! Thanks Emmette!

on June 29

Very knowledgeable, dedicated and committed to his profession. He gave me updates, and kept me informed through the whole process. I was very impressed with "your mechanic" and will spread the word. Emmette didn a great job.

on June 27

Emmette was great again today! Right on time, very polite, kept the area clean, and went above and beyond! Our window system had failed so we used duct tape temporarily to keep the window up, which left adhesive on the window. Emmette cleaned it all off! Wow! Things like this are why we used Emmette again today and we will use him for everything we can in the future. Thanks again, Emmette!

Quick, on-time, to-budget, efficient service with no pressure to take care of other items like we had with our previous mechanic. I was very happy with Emmette's work and would recommend him to anyone looking for a capable, honest mechanic in the area.

Emmette is well verse and mechanically inclined with many years of experience. He changed my water pump, on June 15, 2017, within the predicted time and did a EXCELLANT and EXPEDIENT JOB ! ! ! ! ! And so much cheaper than any other quotes I received. I would highly recommend Emmette to anyone who has car repair needs.

on May 24

Emmette was professional, on time, and very thorough. He took a lot of pictures which was very helpful for my pre-purchase inspection. Would highly recommend.

on May 01

My charging system failure light came on at 445am Monday. New to the area, so I researched shops and came across this site. Needed a new alternator and belt, it was diagnosed, got the correct parts and finished before noon, THE SAME DAY ! He was very professional. Will absolutely use again and am recommending to anyone!

on May 04

Emmette was great! He was a short notice replacement for the original mechanic scheduled to the work. He contacted me early the day of the appointment to see if he could come earlier. We agreed on a revised time, he arrived and immediately got to work. Took the time time to explain the process and the ins/outs of my brake system. All work was professionally done and he followed up with a quick walk around of my vehicle making recommendations for things I might want to consider down the road.

on June 08

This was my first time using YourMechanic, .Emmette showed up on time and he was fully prepared for the job. He had all of the necessary tools with him. He was very knowledgeable about my car and seemed to have significant servicing experience with year, make and model of my car. He took proper care of my car during the repair and completed the work within the estimated time. Great Job Thanks !!!

Emmette did a great job. Punctual and polite, he answered all the questions I made. He serviced my car fast and take care of everything without any concerns about him.

on April 28

A simple job that turned into a nightmare every step of the way, but it never seemed to phase him. He put a lot of extra into the job, to include showing up early.

on August 20

I cannot say enough about how great it was to have Emmette work on my car. Showed up early, worked fast, didn't leave a speck behind, did great work, and had no problem answering a ton of questions that I had throughout the process. He is obviously not faking it and knows exactly what he is doing. I plan on scheduling him every time my car needs work in the future. I'll never take it anywhere else again until he retires.
