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!!

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!

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.

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 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!

Our old trusty Toyota pickup wouldn't start and we kinda gave up hope, but decided to call in the experts for one last opinion. Luckily we found Jose on Yelp and read all his reviews. I also loved the easy online booking and that I could make an same-day appointment. And that Jose came to us (no tow truck needed)! He arrived early, diagnosed the problem (bad battery, he even switched out his own just to test and make sure) and recommended a few places to get a replacement and a battery terminal for cheaper. He also made a new quote for the repair, but didn't push us to commit, which I appreciated. One new battery later, we are on the road again! Thank you!

Jose is the greatest. I advised I was trying to learn a little about my car and he was extremely good about letting me know what he was doing. I would definitely recommend him and can't wait to have him back. He wasn't pushy or trying to upsell like most automotive places do. I was apprehensive about using a online mechanic but I am sold. He arrived on time and the mechanic website kept me advised of how close he was to arriving. Great service, Jose!!!

Explained exactly what he was going to do to fix my car. Autozone sold me the wrong size battery and he even helped to make the connections fit so I didn't have to exchange it. Timely and very polite. I would gladly schedule Jose for any other work in the future. Thank you!

Jose showed up on time and got right down to work. He had everything he needed parts and tool wise. He was pleasant to talk to and seemed knowledgeable. He worked quickly and very soon my car was working as it should. He even double checked everything. I feel pretty confident in this service and likely will use it in the future.

Super friendly and very thorough. Knew what the problem was right away after 2 other mechanics had been stumped. Stayed to let the car run just for our peace of mind. I will definitely request him again.

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.

Friendly and knowledgeable. Found the issue with our brakes fast and got us safe and back on the road. He's our new mechanic!


on June 07

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

Very thorough and friendly. I am not a very technical car person and Jose was able to explain things in a way that was easy to understand. thank you!

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.
