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.

Jose said that I needed my MCM module updated. After spending over $60 at Honda to check this, I was told that all of my systems already are up to date.

Jose came again today for follow up service. He had the car running like new in less than an hour. I could not be more happy with his work. Very professional. Cant say enough good things about the quality work Jose did.

Very professional, knew how to repair my serpentine belt, went to work quickly, efficiently, cleaned up after himself, nice personality, friendly, excellent experience. I have already recommended him to friends if they have problems.

Right on time. Super knowledgeable. Really nice, stand up guy. Booked again for more service later in the week. 100% satisfied. Would highly reccomend.

Jose was friendly, right on time, and had my 1985 Vette up and running in half the time I expected. It runs like a charm now and I avoided towing and high shop fees.

He was incredibley kind and helpful. He replaced the battery and alternator on my car, and even replaced my power steering hose. When he left he gave me detail on the work that still needs done, while giving me an honest quote and advice. He even showed me how to replace my own battery bolt. He was truly a delight and incredibly helpful.

Jose was a great guy who came on time , detailed on time , fixed on time and went on time :). Outside of the fix , he also suggested and spoke about my car in detail. I'd definitely recommend him

I was a. Little nervous using this service with some of the prior reviews but everything worked out great. Jose was a couple minutes early. He introduced himself and then got to work. I was having my starter replaced, he tested the battery and starter and showed me the results. The starter was failing and the battery showed signs of wear but didn't need replacement yet. The whole repair took an hour longer than the estimate due to some rusted bolts. But since the bid is for the job there was no extra charge for the time. Overalls it was a good experience and I would recommend and will probably use for future tune ups I have planned. So glad I didn't do this job myself.

Jose arrived as scheduled to install a new distributor. I really like the way notifications are sent: mechanic is on the way, has arrived, etc. He is very cordial, friendly, easy going, and knowledgeable. After providing some more detailed info before starting the repair, Jose thought it might not be the distributor as previously diagnosed online. He didn't feel it would be proper to go through the needless replacement of a part if that wasn't the source of the problem. He determined and rightly concluded that the starter was the issue. A quick bang on it with some tools and the car started fine. Also took a picture to show me that even though the starter had been replaced once by Nissan, it was a remanufactured part instead of new. Jose turned the repair into an inspection thereby saving me money as well as an unnecessary repair. I have since placed an order for a starter, and one it arrives will be scheduling for Jose to come out again for installation.

Jose was great to work with! I felt so much more confident to offer the right price for this vehicle. Very confident in Jose and this service!

Came out for what I thought was a wheel bearing swap on my truck. Upon inspection he told me probably wasn't a bearing and explained why he felt that way. He even checked the other side to make sure the noise was not traveling to the side I just thought it was on. Very courteous and prompt. Explained thing very well. Since I pull a large heavy 5th wheel it is good to know he feels nothing is wrong. Would definitely use him again for anything else..

Jose checked if he could come early, immediately gave us options, got the job done promptly with some extra help, and also gave great advice for the future of our car! Very pleased. Thank you!

Jose is the man. He showed up on time, explained his tests, and gave me and accurate assessment of my vehicles troubles. Zero complaints.


on May 04

Jose did a buyers inspection on a Rav4 for me. He was very thorough and took many pertinent photo's of the problems he found with the car. What impressed me was that he called me before the inspection and texted me when he got there and followed up with a call at the end of the inspection.

I was really apprehensive on using a moble mechanic but decided to try it anyway. I got a same day appt and Jose came to my home, and was on time. He did quick work, area was cleaned and he was really thorough. He showed me what he did and answered all my questions. I will definitely use him again.

Jose was extremely helpful and had a smile as he walked up. Seemed trustworthy and genuine. He helped identify my problem, gave me advise, unfortunately I need a new clutch assembly, more than he could do on the spot. I would ask for him again.
