Fred was prompt and courteous. He has many years experience which is evident in his work. He fixed the air conditioning in my Lincoln Town Car and it is working like new again. He was clean and efficient leaving no mess. I will definitely use Fred again and recommend him to my family and friends.

Fred quickly confirmed that the check engine light was on due to a low compression problem on one cylinder of the car's engine. He knows his stuff.

Fred was on time and very knowledgeable when it came to the inspection. If it had not been for him pointing out key points about the vehicle, we would of bought a car that had been in a accident and overpriced. Thanks again Fred and I would definitely recommend his services.

First time using Your Mechanic! Great experience - Fred was on time, explained everything he found and was able to replace the car's thermostat in a timely manner.

Fred showed up right on time, diagnosed the problem, fixed the problem, and I am very happy with the entire experience! I will definitely be scheduling all future repairs with him

Fred replaced the valve cover gaskets on my 2000 Toyota Sienna. He looked like he could have done it blind folded. I recommend Fred for any car repair.

Very helpful and insightful. Fred was able to provide a clear diagnosis of the problem so I could make an educated decision on what I need to do next with my vehicle.

This was my first time using Your Mechanic and I must say I'm truly impressed! Fred arrived on time and was polite, courteous and extremely knowledgeable about my vehicle. Fred was able to identify a 3 month long problem within 25 - 20 minutes of inspecting my car. Fred also provided a detailed explanation as to why my check engine light was on, the next steps to completely fix the issue and provided estimate pricing to have the issue resolved. The rates weren't as bad as I thought - much cheaper than going to a dealership and it saved me a bunch of time and hassle. A really great mechanic. Thank you Fred!

I'm so grateful I got fred. He was heaven sent. My car was misdiagnosed and he replaced the misdiagnosed part. My car wasn't able to start and he calmed me down and assured me that he's gonna figure it out. Not only did he figure it out, he fixed the problem and got my car to start again. I recommend him and will be calling him for future services. Thank you, Fred.

Arrived early, knew me by name, extremely professional and answered any questions I had. Found the issue, fixed it, and even stayed a little extra just to make sure things were working properly instead of taking off immediately. Explained all the costs and made sure I understood what was being charged. Great service will definitely recommend!


on March 12

Fred was professional and very knowledgeable. He was able to confirm what I expected to be the issue with my car and fix it. I would recommend his service any day.


on April 14

I was very pleased with the service I received from Fred. He arrived on time. He thoroughly explained what he was doing and the results of the evaluation. Although the problem turned out to be something(issues with my transmission) he could repair, I still satisfied with his services.

Friend was friendly and did a good job, was neat and efficient. My only complaint was he did not have fluids I would expect to be filled during an oil change. In this case the wiper fluid was low and he indicated that he did not fill it because he did not have any.


on April 02

Fred was very nice and polite. He fixed my A/C issue. I will have to mention though that a knocking noise is coming from the engine that was not there before.

Came to do my timing, diagnosed bad harmonic balancer I totally agree with his assessment. Will be having new one installed.

Fred should have test driven the vehicle more. The Emissions Shop warning light came on the first time I drove the car. The Other Inspection service was to ensure a good connection on glow plug 4 since the computer read out said it wasn't getting a consistent ground. Fred also did not arrive with the valve cover gasket or a spate glow plug wire. Now another YourMechanic is going to need to revisit the car, rip apart the engine to get to the glow plugs and install a new ~$15 cable. All could likely have been averted.
