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 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!

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.

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 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

Second time using Jose. I have had great experiences both times. He's friendly, knowledgeable and gets the job done.

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 did a fantastic job! Right on time. Answered any questions i had about my crosstrek. I would certainly recommend him.

on December 11

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.

on December 05

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.

on January 27

Jose was great! He got my window back up. Sadly I picked the wrong part to get fixed. But I'll see him Tuesday!

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 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 January 16

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

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 provided exception service. He was very knowledgeable and knew how to diagnose my car problem quickly and gave me plenty of good car maintenance tips. He took his time and did a quality job. I was a little skeptical using for the first time but I will definitely be using it more often given how positive my first experience was.

on October 06

Jose was very polite and profession. He answered all our questions & more! Just purchased my preowned car and wanted his advice on taking care of it. Very nice gentlemen with a lot of auto knowledge!

This was for a pre purchase inspection of a used vehicle. Jose involved me in the process and showed me what he was looking at to help me understand what my repair concerns were going to be for this vehicle. He had good ballpark estimates off the top of his head for most of the recommended work. This was really helpful my decision to purchase an older salvage vehicle. If I could give Jose feedback it would be to better document his recommendations on the final inspection report because it's hard to remember everything that is said verbally during this kind of interaction.

on September 26

Jose arrived in time , very pleasant got chance to talk to him about what my car needs and has strong knowledge regarding car repairs and what need to be done!

on September 23

Jose was great. Showed up on time, professional, informative. He explained what he was doing and how the component (O2 sensor in my case) worked. Would definitely use him again if needed.
