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.

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 took his time to explain everything that could be wrong with my starter plus other things that might be a problem once he does the actual starter replacement. Jose was very friendly very knowledgeable and very easy to understand. He is a true asset to your company

Jose was amazing. He showed up early for our appointment and explained every step of the process to me as he was replacing my battery and testing my alternator and starter. He communicated on my level, never talking down to me or explaining things in a way that only another mechanic would understand. I love this service. Having Jose at my house working on my vehicle was much like having that "friend of the family" mechanic at my disposal. His demeanor and personality matched that attitude. I will definitely request Jose in the future. So glad I have a friendly mechanic to count on. Alex

Jose was great! He thoroughly explained what was wrong with my vehicle, what warning signs to look out for in the future, and what to do if they occurred. We will be hiring him again!

Jose called and was able to come early. He is very knowledgeable and experienced. He needed parts that were not available so he made an appointment that fits both of our schedules to come back.

Mr. Trinidad is a professional, and he is also a really nice guy. He is considerate and thorough. He came to our house and was ready to do his work, and described what he had performed efficiently and directly.

Jose arrived on time and completed the necessary repairs in a timely manner. Jose is a professional mechanic and is very knowledgeable and explains the repairs in an informative and understandable manner. We always get great support from Jose and will continue to use him when repairs are needed for our 1998 Subaru Outback. We will also recommend Jose to our friends and family. .

Jose is a super friendly guy and is incredibly knowledgable. I'm a bit of an idiot with cars, so he always kindly explains what work he's doing and why it's necessary. I go out of my way to make sure Jose is available to do the work on my car.

Jose has repaired both of the cars I have a few times now. He is always generous with his knowledge, his time, and his expertise. My wife and I are always impressed with his dedication to get to the job site, and get the repair done. We already have mind to recommend him to other people we know in the area, should they have car trouble, and one of them really does, all the time.


on November 25

Jose arrived on time, was extremely knowledgeable and knew exactly what was wrong with my car as soon as he turned the key in the ignition! Amazing service and will definitely be calling him for any future repairs needed on my vehicle.

Jose was great. Very informative, and did a great job explaining options. I definitely will use him in the future.

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 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.


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.

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.

Joses was punctual friendly knew his business and I would recommend him to anybody and I will be booking him in the future this is a great service.

I like his service, This is my second schedule with jose, would like to schedule with him again if any thing comes up in the future. He is very polite and respectful. Did the work on time.

Jose is your guy. Has great experience, worked quickly, thoughtful with his calls about his arrival time, and happy to chat, and let me hang out and learn from his work with my car. At one point, a small, rice sized piece of the carburetor system was dropped, and he persistently looked for it throughout the engine and garage until we found it. I think most mechanics would give up and have to delay the repairs until a new one could be ordered. Jose restored life within an hour to my 30 year old Jeep that had not been operational for over 3 years, and now it's running like new. I'll definitely request Jose next time I need help with my rig.

Jose, Went the extra mile in explaining my vehicles issue and provided me with additional information on what was going on with it. He preformed additional checks and answered my questions on the AC unit. I would recommend Jose to my friends and family.

At first, I was skeptical of the whole mobile mechanic deal. After dealing with Jose, I have no qualms about referring others to him. Other shops said that I needed the CV axle and a few other things. Jose took a look and let me know that it was the hub and bearings. He was done in an hour, for half of what the shops wanted. This included time to go over what he was doing and why.

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 is awesome! There was an additional service that needed to be done with the front tire bearings but Jose was able to explore options with me and was able to get the job done! Great feedback on any other issues with the car but definitely would like to do business with him again! I'm able to drive to work now!

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.
