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 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.

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 yourmechanic.com. I will keep Ira for my mechanic. Now that I know who to call. Yourmechanic.com has all my business for car repairs now. No more Tire Kingdom.

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.

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.

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.

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!


on July 08

Ira was great! His communication was good, arrived on time. He took the feedback I had from a local chain car shop but did his own assessment and showed me how the shop got it wrong and I didn't need one of the big expensive repairs. He did the one remain repair, and pointed out that my brake pads were worn so added on the job to replace those. Ira was professional, knowledgable, and was vested in making sure I got the most for my money. The job site was clean when he left. I will definitely look to use him in the future for more car maintenance or repair.

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.

I will definitely use Ira for any future repairs.
