14 years of experience
Portland, OR

I've been working as an auto technician for over 12 years and I'm ASE and TIA certified. I've worked at Chevrolet and Ford dealerships and also have extensive Honda knowledge. My fields of expertise are replacing brakes, timing belts, fuel pumps, window motors, and axles, as well as performing preventative maintenance repairs. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and I firmly believe that safety comes first with each of my customers.

Jose went above and beyond to have my car ready on-time / early. He clearly explained everything he was doing and went out of his way to make sure I understood the root cause of my radiator failing. I would recommend Jose (and YourMechanic) without reservation.

on June 21

Jose was fantastic! He checked everything out and let me know the full picture of what was going on with my car. I would have him work on my car again.

Jose was wonderful! The problem was they didn't bring the full part out that we asked for. Which had nothing to do with him. Hopefully you will read this and correct the mistake and have the missing part replaced. Other than that everything was great!

on December 08

Jose was excellent! He found a problem I have spent a lot of money trying to fix. What I had scheduled to be done was not the problem. Jose showed me what I need. I have set up the right work to be done. Jose is knowledgeable, professional and friendly. This is a great service at a great price.

Jose was very nice, got right to work, and had the problem ( a new starter) fixed in under an hour. I appreciate the convenience of the mechanic coming out to our residence. He did not add charges beyond the online estimate, which is why I will call Your Mechanic again. Jose does good quality work at a fair price- and I highly recommend him!

on August 27

Jose is on-time, personable, professional, produces excellent work! Highly recommend Jose as he's worked on both of our cars over the past few months => he's a star and reliable mechanic!



Honda CR-V

I can't remember the last time I've written a review, but my experience with Jose definitely calls for one. Another mechanic recommended that my fuel pump be replaced. When Jose showed up he said that he wasn't comfortable replacing it if he didn't diagnose it. So he did some troubleshooting and took the time to get the car to replicate the symptoms it was having. All along he was explaining to me what and why he was doing it and he's really great at using analogies to help explain things. When the car wouldn't start he tested the distributor and found out that was the culprit and. It the fuel pump. So he saved me a lot of money and got the job done right the first time. From now on I will use him as my mechanic and highly recommend him....thank you Jose!!

Nice guy, Smiling face, came on time(a bit early in fact) did his job perfect. Replaced car right and left parking cables. Working great now. Would recommend him and to my friends.

on August 26

Jose did an incredible job with great customer service. This car needed 2 visits to be complete and Jose was prompt and efficient. I would request Jose to be my mechanic again and again with future work.

on February 02

Jose was very informative re: various issues that were apparent after examining the vehicle and getting it started. I very much appreciated his observations explained in layman terms... informational and educational. Thanks Jose!

on August 14

Jose is always so lovely to work with. He diagnosed our issue quickly and managed to figure out what was necessary to get our old car up and running again.

on August 16

The best mechanic experience that I have ever had! Jose was very knowledgeable, incredibly professional, and friendly. I had him come out and inspect my clutch. Not only did he inspect the clutch, but he was also kind enough to teach me the basic mechanics of how the clutch operates. He even took out a camera probe and stuck it in my car to showed me what my clutch looks like. I have never had a mechanic take such great care of me! I am definitely going to recommend Jose, and Your Mechanic to all of my friends! Absolutely fantastic service!!

Jose is extremely professional,courteous and very friendly and knowledgeable.I would definitely recommend him to all my friends and family. Thanks Jose I really appreciate your time. Seymour Le

Jose did a great job repairing my car. He was knowledgeable and quick. He was not satisfied with his work until he observed everything. My only disappointment is that he did not "test drive" the car after the repairs, and I noticed another problem related to the original. Would have been handy to diagnose and evaluate at the same time, but will just have to make another appointment!

on November 16

After looking at my vehicle, Jose explained the problem and showed me how I could save money and fix it myself. He also gave me suggestions on where to look to get to get the parts I needed. I really valued his recommendations and he was spot on about pricing from different locations (e.g., dealership, Amazon, other). I was able to find the parts I needed and it was easy to do myself. I truly appreciated him coming to look at my car on a Friday evening, especially since it was dark and drizzling.

on November 16

Jose was able to look at a truck i was looking into purchasing, found several issues that would have been expensive to fix and as such saved me a lot of time and headaches.

on November 25

We will definitely use Jose by request in the future. He was very professional and efficient. He came from beaverton and changed my oil in my GMC truck and serviced my Differential, then travelled all the way back to beaverton again, then came back and changed my wife's Volvo XC90 oil within three hours. Then they told him he had another oil change back in beaverton AGAIN!!! He never complained. I would've told them to "kiss my a--"! THANK YOU JOSE.

Jose showed up at my location exactly on the dot for our appointment time. As soon as he got out of his truck I started to feel better. Right away his easy going manner and good humor at the end of a long 12 hour day put me at ease. The day before there had been talk of a cancellation due to lacking parts, but somehow he managed to get the parts he needed, (late on a Sunday night too) and made it to the appointment. He didn't waste any time getting set up and beginning to remove the parts that were in the way, all the while calmly answering my questions and telling me everything that he was doing. It was not at all what I expected. Growing up I thought that the only way to fix a car was to get super mad, yell a lot and throw at least one wrench. Well that's how dad did it anyway, but not Jose, even when the belt was being stubborn and some fingers may have gotten pinched, he kept his cool. I was amazed and impressed. After it was all done and we were done high-fiving (hey I held a flashlight), he proceeded to go over the engine and give me a short list of things I could fix myself, things that could wait and things that shouldn't. If I ever have another problem with the truck I will be looking him up. I simply can not say enough good things about the man, I would recommend him with confidence to anyone I know.

Jose was awesome! He arrived right on time and fixed my window (motor was dead) in less than a hour. I was so pleased with this experience. I will definitely be using Jose again in the future.

on December 08

Jose was on time, knowledgable and very skilled. He got the job done quickly and after the repair explained what is causing the problem. I will use this service again and recommend this service to my friends.

on November 15

Great first time experience Jose was on time , very courteous and was able to diagnose problem quickly He replaced the alternator and had car back to normal in about 2 hours I will be using this service again and would recommend Jose

on November 12

Jose was very knowledgable and helped my wife and I feel confident about the condition of the vehicle we were wanting to purchase. He was very considerate to make sure we were aware of the things we would need to replace or keep an eye on for the future, and he was extra cautious to make sure that we knew and not the salesman. I would highly recommend the services of Jose for pre-purchase inspection and the services of YourMechanic.

on November 18

Jose was able to explain what the problem with my car was in terms I could understand. He was friendly and did a great job. I recommend him if you are looking for a good, solid mechanic.

Jose was very punctual and knowledgeable. He explained to me what he was doing, and what needed to be done, and I feel very confident in his work. I'll definitely be requesting him for future services! I'd recommend him to friend's and family.

Jose was our first time using this service. It was a very pleasant experience. Jose let us know exactly when he would arrive. He arrived on time and was curious and nice. He proceeded working on our truck and took full control of the repair. After he finished he had inspected our vehicle and pointed out some items that might need repair or future maintenance. Work was completed in a timely matter, very professional and done well. I am old and I used to do all my own repairs but thank goodness for this service and people like Jose that do professional work and are kind and seem to take an interest in doing a good job and going out of their way to make sure the customer has a great experience. I am looking forward to having Jose work on other automotive issues in the future and highly recommend this gentleman for your automotive services. Thanks again Jose for being there and taking care of things. It means a lot to an older person that cannot do those things anymore. I give the service and Jose a AAA + Thank you again for a great experience. Michael

Jose was great! Was on time, diagnosed my issue so quickly and fixed my car in less than an hour. I've had the same issue happen to my vehicle (overheating without smoke) and was charged an arm and a leg for it everywhere else. Jose knew it was a simple easy small part fix (just needed a new thermostat) with labor, parts, and coolant it was way less than any other place would have charged me. I will definitely use Jose again for my car repair needs.

on January 10

Jose provided exception service. He was very knowledgeable and knew how to diagnose my car problem quickly and gave me plenty of good car maintenance tips. He took his time and did a quality job. I was a little skeptical using for the first time but I will definitely be using it more often given how positive my first experience was.

He did great work. The replacement would normally require dropping the exhaust to fully access the starter (which would have to be done at a shop), but he figured out a way to do the job in my driveway, saving me a lot of money at a shop. In addition, he was on time, quick, and friendly. A pleasure.

on October 14

Jose was great! He was very thorough with the pre-purchase inspection. He called me afterwards to discuss the findings. I love this service and recommend Jose!

on October 09

This was the first time using your mechanic,like everyone else was very scheptical about the service until I met Jose.he was punctual and professional,knew what he was doing. I've asked other question about my car and he took the time to find the problem and explain. I'm impressed with his knowledge and the time spent .
