Hello and Aloha! My name is Gary. I lived in Hawaii all my life and now a Bay Area resident since 2003. I have been working on cars for more than 20 years (first ASE certified in 1989) and have worked for Ford, BMW and Mitsubishi. I enjoy working on both domestic as well as imports and where I'm from, Asian vehicles are very familiar. Currently I am an ASE Master Auto Technician as well as a CA licensed smog inspector. I have been a mobile mechanic for many years and enjoy the flexibility and change that comes with working on different cars at different places. I will be delighted to work with you and explain any problems you may have with your vehicles! Thank you and Mahalo! Gary

I would highly recommend Gary to fix car problems. He's very honest and he will fix what he says he's gonna fix. He has changed the oil on my van and fixed a battery short that's been draining my battery.
Gary is a great mechanic. He is very trustworthy. He came prepared and did the job in the correct time. Please give Gary the job to fix your car you will be glad you did.
overall i am satisfied with the work, only thing i hated was the appt was at 11:00 and mechanic showed up at 12:30 and i had to leave for another meeting.
Mr. Gary Balanza did a great job on my van today. He is friendly, honest and knowledgeable, I'm so impressed. His service far exceeded my expectations. And I would be very happy to recommend him to all my friends.

Gary, is a good mechanic that you trust! It is nice to have a mechanic that will fix our service what you want without hounding you about 5 other things. He knows his way around the vehicles. I have,4 and Gary is the lucky one that gets to work on all my vehicles I will not go to a shop again. Thanks Gary!
Gary was "over-the-top" professional and courteous!!
Another great job by YourMechanic services! Thank you!

This is Gary second visit to repair one of my cars. I hope to see him again.
This is my first time using this service and I absolutely love it. Gary was polite, courteous, professional, friendly, informative and I trust him. I am going to recommend this service to everyone I know. You are very lucky to have Gary working with your company and I am going to call on you guys when I need service for my car from now on.
I was a little surprised that the work took a second day to complete. I was lucky I didn't need the truck immediatly. I know that vehicle is difficult to work on and I was happy the bill was exactly what was quoted. I have had about 5 repairs done on the truck in the past 2 years and the bill is always $500 more than the estimate which creates problems in budgeting. Overall this was a great experience and I would like you to do all of our fleet vehicle maintenance. Thanks for the great service.
Prompt returning calls, arrived on time, very efficient, let me know what and how he was going to do the work! I would recommend him to anyone. Will be having him do my next repairs! Very happy with brake job!
Well, although I did explain the nature of the job, I think I misused the system. I scheduled a headlamp upgrade, not a repair. The mechanic was still willing to do the job and did so with the utmost professionalism. He was on time, presentable, and polite. I will absolutely use them again, for repairs.
Gary arrived right on time, he is courteous and knowlegable. All work was done on time and the car is running fine. I figure I save a few hundred dollars using YourMechanic.com... I will use the vendor again.
Gary did an excellent job.
Previous to booking YourMechanic.com, I had my car checked in a local mechanic for an estimate and showed me what was exactly wrong with my power steering. I opted to try YourMechanic.com because of the lower estimate and great reviews on-line. When Gary B. arrive and started to work on my car, he actually pointed out and showed me the actual problem with my car. The other local mechanic pointed on the wrong hose and was completely wrong. And if I had gone with him, I would still have the same problem. Gary B. corrected the issue and fixed up my car good. Now its running like new and no more steering issues. Thanks Gary B. and YourMechanic.com!! I will definitely book with you again if another problem arises. Thanks. I finally found a mechanic I can trust.
He was a great mechanic & was in and out quickly.
Gary was very prompt, he was at my house at exactly 9AM, he was very courteous. I had my own brake parts, he didnt have to remove the paint on the rotors, but he took time to removed it. I would recommend yourmechanic.com to friends and relatives, along with Gary.
Pleasant Hill, CA
Gary was on time, polite, and told it to me straight regarding the condition of my vehicle's brakes ("they should last for about three more years") - not so sure the dealership would have done the same. I'll gladly hire him again in a heartbeat.
He came early, diagnosed the problem, and was very helpful. Unfortunately, he was not 100% he had fixed the problem completely, but he was honest about that as well. Issue was that car not started and was in garage, so the time/cost savings of having mechanic come to me was invaluable. Pretty cool first time using this service
I am so grateful to have found a mechanic that will come to my home. I have a daycare and needed my window to be operational for transporting children. I had my window motor replaced and was up and running within the same day! Gary the mechanic was punctual and explained the procedure to me. The overall experience was pleasant and his customer service was top notch.
Gary arrived early and took the time to explain what was wrong with my car. He was very professional and very respectful. Very knowledgeable and an outstanding mechanic. He was able to fix my 2002 Audi A4. I was very satisfied with the repair the he completed. (Cooling system/temperature passage replacement). I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends with their automotive problems. Donelle
