Jose

13 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.

This is second time we've had Jose come to our house. And again it was a great experience. He's honest and informative. I'll definitely call him again. Thank you Jose!

Everything went smoothly. Jose was very professional and efficient. Did a excellent job. Very complimentary of the condition of my car. Very validating.

I was very impressed with Jose. He was very professional, friendly and explained what he was doing every step of the way. I would definitely use him again and would highly recommend him to family and friends. Thanks Jose!

Clearly Jose is a fabulous guy. Jose went the extra mile to figure out exactly what the deal was with my car. When I win the Mega Millions lottery, I will be stealing Jose away from you so he can work for me full time. I expect to have at least 10 different automobiles which will require his full-time expertise and care. Jose will have a ridiculously fabulous salary, at least 2 fine homes in an area of his choosing and an ultra sleek modern ridiculously expensive sports car, maybe 2. Jose will also have a personal assistant named Margareta and access to my personal jet -- a Boeing Business Jet 2 A.K.A “the Flying Hotel”. I highly doubt that Your Mechanic will be able to beat those perks. So treat him well.

Jose did an amazing job inspecting my new car. He checked every little thing and did a great job of explaining what needs to be replaced. He was thorough, honest, and very knowledgeable. I'll definitely be calling him in the future.

Great guy, showed up on time ready to work, got his job done sooner than expected, also let me know of some other issues there are with my car.

Jose worked very hard to fix my old car. He put a lot of effort into replacing the starter, and the extra stress was related to rust and old age of the car, not a technical issue. He was kind, on time, and did a great job. Happy he came out to help us!


on February 10

Jose was congenial and knowledgeable. He explained everything incredibly well and made sure we walked away with confidence. I've never used YourMechanic Services before, but will now make sure they're the first I contact in case of an issue.

This is the second time I have had Jose work on my car. He is always professional and very knowledgeable. A job well done

Love this service! Saved us from having to tow it to a shop . And saved us money. I've never heard of this service but I will be spreading the world ! Going to be using your mechanics every time . Jose fixed it fast and was friendly and prompt .

Jose took time to replace part twice to eliminate possibility of faulty part. Unfortunately it did not completely resolve the engine light but did repair faulty O2 sensor. Jose did not have enough test equipment to diagnose the problem further but recommended shops that did.

Jose was right on time and was able to find the source of my leak. He also gave a thorough inspection and found that I had a couple small leaks; not just one, so I appreciated that. He also took the time to explain everything he found and helped me understand what to look for in the future. He got the job completed very efficiently.

Great service, he knows what he's doing and he knows what he's talking about and he tells you about every little thing that you should know about your car


on January 25

Jose arrived early, had all the tools he needed, was polite and good humored. He figured out the problem in minutes (probably something I should have noticed) and we were able to go pick up the one part that was needed to fix it right then. He did not mind answering all my questions about everything and pointed out items that I should have the previous mechanic shop confirm they did correct (possible over torquing on the alternator nut which sheered off). I would definitely have Jose work on my car again.

Jose did a great job and found my problem. It was not what I originally thought. He could have done the job I thought it was and the problem would not have been fixed! Very honest and great customer service!

Jose very knowledge. He helped me a understand what was going on with the vehicle part. I appreciated him coming out and would recommend him to come out anytime I needed

Jose arrived before the appointment, explained each procedure thoroughly, finished the job in a timely manner, and was very polite during our interaction. Car runs wonderfully now!

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 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.

Jose is a very friendly auto mechanic and a gentleman. He was careful to explain everything to me so I understood everything he was doing. I highly recommend Jose.

Jose came to my house and replaced the water pump on my '93 Chevy G20 van. He worked quickly, and had the job done in an hour. He was courteous, professional, and friendly. He did such a good job I booked him again for the next day to replace my tie rod ends and spark plug wires. I will be calling him again the next time I need any work done.


on September 01

Jose came and did the oil change as we had requested. We appreciated that fact that he did an inspection of the car, too. He said it was in excellent condition and didn't try to sell us other services as some places (such as Jiffy Lube) do. He did recommend to change the back tires soon which we will. Thank you,Jose!


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.

Jose was thorough, friendly and knowledgable. He recommended upcoming maintenance and ways to save money doing it. He called to let me know he would be late due to traffic, which was not a problem. great communication

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.

This was my first experience with YourMechanic and I am so impressed! Jose was on time and completed my oil change very fast. He was very friendly and seemed like he cared about doing a good job. I would absolutely recommend him and would love to have him work on my car again.

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

I am extremely pleased with Jose's skill, work ethic, friendliness, and willingness to accommodate the many questions with which I peppered him. "Your Mechanic" effects repairs at the customer's residence, not at the shop. Jose quickly diagnosed the failed starter, exonerated the alternator and voltage regulator, and expertly replaced the starter. This is a wonderful service, and an unbelievable bargain. This was my first experience. I will definitely be using their service again for my 2002 Camry.
