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 on-time, personable, professional, produces excellent work! Highly recommend Jose as he's worked on both of our cars over the past few months => he's a star and reliable mechanic!

Jose did an incredible job with great customer service. This car needed 2 visits to be complete and Jose was prompt and efficient. I would request Jose to be my mechanic again and again with future work.

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!

Jose is extremely professional,courteous and very friendly and knowledgeable.I would definitely recommend him to all my friends and family. Thanks Jose I really appreciate your time. Seymour Le

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!!!

Jose was awesome! He was friendly, professional, and diagnosed our issue really quickly. We are so pleased with his service, and can't wait to have him back.

Jose was awesome! He showed up early, was done in a timely manner and also diagnosed another problem that I had with my power steering pump. Booked him to come out this Sunday.

Jose was awesome! Great service and took time to educate us about our vehicle. The whole time we felt he had our best interest at heart. The customer service was 5 Stars.

He did a awesome job!! The first guy who did the original testing was wrong. Jose figured the right problem out in no time. Thank you so much Jose. I will be definitely calling you next time!!

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 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.


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 .


on September 29

I though Jose was great. He was extremely communicative and didn't seem annoyed by my random inquiries. We also had a struggle with getting the correct belt for my water pump replacement and he followed through on multiple fronts to get his hands on one. My only minor complaint was the time between the initial inspection and the work. The first appointment was almost a week away and it would have been awesome if that was a little faster. But the work was great!

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 was extremely professional. He was early, very knowledgeable, very patient with my questions, and was very nice and outgoing. I could not have asked for better service.

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 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.
