32 years of experience
Tampa-St. Petersburg (Sarasota), FL

I've been an automotive technician since 1986. Over my career I've worked on a huge range of Domestic, European, and Asian vehicles in the independent shops I've owned. My work is clean and neat, and I treat every customer like a VIP.

I would have to agree that Ira was by far one of the most gifted and professional mechanics I have dealt with in my life. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to answer all of my questions. I would recommend him to anyone that is looking to get their car repaired.

Ira is awesome!! He arrived on time and finished early. My car rides much smoother now. I wish I had known about Yourmechanic years ago, I could've saved myself a lot of money. He's very knowledgeable and clearly explained the work he performed. Thanks to Ira fixing my brake light I can now stop panicking whenever a cop is behind me. I will definitely use Ira for any future repairs.

Kia Forte

Ira was awesome! I highly recomend his services. He was friendly, trustworthy, and got the job done despite having to wait in his car for over an hour for the rain to pass. He finished the job in the dark and it although it was just an alternator replacement it looked like a tough job even in the daylight. Best mechanic I've dealt with since I've been repairing my car.

Ford F-150
on September 18

Ira arrived on time and was exceptionally nice. He took the time to check everything on my truck to see if he could solve the problem without replacing the part. Kept a great attitude the entire appointment even while having to deal with one of the most frustrating fastener bolts (f150 top starter bolt, universally hated on the internet). Finished the job and my truck works great now.

on September 27

Excellent mechanic,very knowledgeable, was on time and very efficient and straight to the point. Would want he as our return Mechanic for all repairs and maintenence

I am very pleased by his work, showing up early, treating me like a human being, his honesty, friendliness, and I am very grateful to have found a mechanic fast. I can't tell you how many other mechanics ripped me off and took advantage of me. Mr stroud is the kind of person that I think very highly of having a neighbor because in a mobile home park no tenant has a choice who moves next to them and most of the time the people turn out to be trouble. One more thing I was very angry my neighbor pulled on Ira this is between him and I. My neighbor had a lot of nerve. I wished that ira was more stern and kept to his guns with those people. Ira knows what I am talking about and it has nothing to do with I will keep Ira for my mechanic. Now that I know who to call. has all my business for car repairs now. No more Tire Kingdom.

on July 29

Ira was timely, performed a thorough inspection, and did a great job discussing and explaining the problems with my vehicle. I'm looking forward to the first repair appointment as I'm very confident he'll do an awesome job.

Incredibly personal. Went the extra mile to make sure everything was all set with my car. Convinced that he did a better job than any shop I could have went to. Ira will be my go-to for any future car work I may need.

Ira showed up on time and completed the work as requested and within the time frame noted. I would definitely use Ira again for any service work in the future.

Ira is amazing. After his inspection he was able to find the problem and point it out to me. Without him I would have never known what was wrong with my car.

on July 27

Ira was professional, knowledgeable, honest, and helpful. I couldn't have asked for a better mechanic. I will definitely ask for him next time my car needs service, and I highly recommend him. It was a convenient and cost-effect service all around.

on July 26

It was a pleasure doing business with Ira! Very punctual, calm, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. He patiently walked me through the issues my car has and the way forward. I am very satisfied with his service and definitely look forward to working with him again.

The Mechanic was well on time and looked at car and he has a very good knowledge and directly pointed to the problem the car had a an oil problem,I had taken my car to a reputed car repair Christian brothers and those guys just rip off money and do nothing.This guy was very straightforward and told in detail about the issue and told me to put some oil and then he fixed the lose oil filter.There was no noise afterwards and then car was running smooth.I am glad I called your mechanic and got this corrected which saved lot of money.Great job Ira you are very professional and friendly,right to the details you know the issue and recommend proper corrections to resolve issue...Hats off to you.

Whatever you're paying him, it's not enough. He needs a raise. ALL THE RAISES! Extrheeeeemely professional, courteous, knowledgeable, precise, and determined, he systematically and methodically diagnosed a 14 month old mystery like a scientist, testing and ruling out various electric issues that only a thoroughly trained and experienced mechanic could do.

on July 06

Thank you Ira. He checked brake pads as well. All good. Thus, cheaper than expected....that NEVER happens, right? Will definitely book next service here!
