Jose

12 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 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.


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.


on November 27

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 22

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.

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.

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.

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 .

This is the second time I have had the pleasure of José assisting with my car. He is very knowledgeable and calmly explains everything very well. I'll always request Jose in the future.

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 very professional in carrying out his repairs. He's an excellent mechanic with outstanding repair skills. He arrived promptly and on schedule. He completed our repairs in the time estimated and we are extremely pleased with his service. We will gladly recommend him to our friends and have him come back for future repairs and tune-up on our automobile.

Jose is the best mechanic I've found so far. I was told I needed an expensive repair by another shop and Jose not only told me I didn't need it. He explained to me how my truck worked in detail. He could of fixed something I didn't need and made more money..I would of never known ..but he refused to make a profit on my lack of knowledge. .he has earned my bus inessential for as long as he's a mechanic.


on September 18

First time using yourmechanic and didn't know what to expect, but Jose changed my mind. All around awesome experience. Jose really took care of it all. Changed out my fried alternator and power steering belts in a flash. Seeing every thing he went through to get the pulleys moved, I wouldn't ever have been able to do it myself, thats for sure. Jose had a great attitude and arrived on time. I feel relieved to know I can arrange for Jose to come out when something goes wrong. Thanks a ton Jose!

Jose was great! He arrived on time and made my first yourmechanic experience super easy. He was also great at explaining everything. Would definitely recommend.

Jose is the best! Very nice and accurate. I would recommend him to everyone who needs service on their car! Every time I use the mechanic app I will request for Jose! He showed up on time and was very helpful even though I knew absolutely nothing about cars!!


on February 04

Jose was right on time! We discussed what the car was doing when it broke down and he really listened! He fixed my van and let me know what the other noise I was hearing is from. I will definitely be booking him to come back and repair any other problems I have with my car! Jose is an A+ mechanic!

I am so happy I found your mechanic. They were honest from the start and Jose was very knowledgable and informative. I have already recommended this service to others.

Due to my schedule, I was tired and accidentally fell asleep while I was expecting a diagnostic appointment. However, Jose kept knocking on my door, and stayed on the phone with my mom (some how he had her number and not mine) even though it took my twenty minutes to finally wake up. When he looked at my car he instantly found the problem and explained to me what he needed to do and the cost estimate. He came back in the morning and fixed my belt and water pump all while letting me sleep! He's a very nice guy, the price was no where near as expensive as I was expecting. And he continued to give me after care advice for my car so I don't have any future problems. These guys come to door and fix whatever issue your vehicle has. Saves you on towing and you don't have to worry about wait time, leaving it in the shop. Definitely recommend!


on February 04

Jose was very professional and got the job done fast. He let me know the steps he was taking and the parts that I had wrong waited for me to go get the right part and fixed my truck. his service is very outstanding and well appreciated. Thanks jose I will be using his services again in the near future as well as tell others.


on August 25

Having used this service for the very first time, I felt very cautious about what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised, and encouraged, with Jose's knowledge and skills. He was on-time, friendly, and got my AC condenser installed and working in the time predicted. He also left his working area spotless before he left. I highly recommend Jose's services to those needing auto repairs. He saved me about 35% of the dealer's service shop estimate and did a great job!
