I just want you to know, Iras was very good and knowledgeable and fixed my Chevrolet equinox. My wife is happy and do am I. I rate Iras the highest rating I can give and would recommend him highly. Thanks Iras, you are the best. I retired from GM Chevrolet motor Division in 1996 after 20 + years and I watched and talked to him and I knew he was well qualified. Pastor Willie Fowler.

Ira was able to arrive early, and tackled removal of alternator on my Hyundai. It was no easy task because of location and space. He is hands down a great mechanic. I will spread the word about this service.

Ira and this service were absolutely fantastic! We first received a quote from a chain repair shop and were shocked with the estimate. My neighbor then suggested YourMechanic and we were so surprised at the price, the punctuality, the service and professionalism of the staff we dealt with! We would very much use this service and suggest Ira again as the mechanic! Thank you so much for saving us time and money.

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.

Ford F-150

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.
