I needed the starter replaced on my 2007 volkswagen jetta and James arrived a little early and did the installation and also a thorough inspection of my car. He got it up and running and was very professional and a pleasure to have complete the work. I already have recommended him to others. Thank you!

James made my first expierience with YourMechanic amazing and so easy. Although he was only paid to replace my thermostat he provided me with so much extra information and tips for future service to my vehicle. He went above and beyond and I highly recommend him to anyone! Thanks again James!

Excellent experience. On time. Professional. Courteous. Honest. I requested brake pad repair (only because dealer said so, and I already procrastinated a year), but James took a look and said it's still good! No need for replacement, but James still did a thorough inspection on the car. Appreciate the time he took to explain things, the audio and visual report as well.

James was very helpful. My son told me his brakes were grinding and pulling so I thought it was the front brakes. James shows up and determines it's the back disc that are worn and grinding he went and got the correct parts and replaced the back brakes.

James came back again for work on my car and I was just as satisfied as my first experience. I regret not trying this service earlier, I'm always going to come to Your Mechanic first when my car needs any work.

James was great. He checked out my car thoroughly and resolved the issue quickly as well as provided recommendations for upcoming scheduled maintenance. Very reasonable pricing. Will use for all my car repairs.

James was right on time and very professional. After completing my brake job, he took the time to point out other areas of my car that I may want to address to avoid future major expenses. I was very pleased with the services provided and will be requesting him again. This was my first time using this service and I had a very good experience. I will be using it again.

James conducted a pre-purchase inspection on a BMW 1 series I was considering to buy. The inspection took place at the car dealer location and James arrived just before the requested time. James was very professional all along and conducted a detailed inspection of the car during over 45 minutes which also included a test drive. All the key points of the car were verified thoroughly using appropriate equipment when required. Smaller details were also inspected and tested rigorously prior to recording ion the inspection report. From the discussion we had, it's clear that James is exceptionally knowledgeable and has an extensive experience in auto maintenance. I am extremely satisfied with the service James provided and I would definitely recommend his services to my friends. It was money well spent and I ended up buying the car with confidence. Thank you James!

James was on time and very efficient. He got the job done very fast and offered some extra maintenance needed on my car without being pushy about it. I would call on him again when needed.

16 year old car was making a strange sound and not passing smog. James took a look, let me know I didn't need to replace the part I thought I needed and went over the things I did need. He was very knowledgeable, fast and professional. I didn't feel at all like I do when I go to the mechanic. I'm really happy I choose to use the service, I know who I'm calling from now on when my car needs attention.

James was timely, friendly and cooperative. He provided the service in a timely manner and drove the vehicle to confirm its satisfactory repair. I trust that the P0128 readout doesn't reoccur.

James is fantastic! He was able to walk me through the entire process and show me everything that was required to eliminate existing and future problems with my vehicle. He also gave me some good recommendations for future repairs. I also received more of the " Your Mechanic " flyers and discount cards etc. I will definitely recommend this mechanic group to my family and friends.. Chris Anderson

James arrived earlier than the appointment time and he is ready to work, handed James the key and went back to what I was doing, a little over an hour later James called my phone and tell me the car is ready, he showed me what I need to do to upkeep the car in good shape. Thank You

James did a wonderful job. He changed out the starter with out a hitch and now I do not half to worry about an intermittent functioning starter. I was going to change it myself and then looked at the hassle of it...I did not want to deal with it. James made it look easy, but I knew it would have been a chore for me. He was very nice and professional. Gave me some recommendations without being a sales person. I felt he was honest and sincere. If you have a need for a mechanic, James is a great person to call up to the plate. YourMechanic is a great service! James...Thank You for doing a great job! Oh, on a side note, if this was done at a shop, the mechanic would probably not have finished in a couple of hours. I was up and driving around very quickly...not an all day project.

I was impressed by his professionalism and the fact that he took the time to explain things to me. It was nice to have a service company show up on time.

As an older, single woman I have had some terrible experiences with auto repair services. Your mechanic made the repair process perfect from start to finish. I found your service extremely convenient, the response time is fantastic, and the online site is very user friendly. Recently I had to wait 4 hours for rear brake pad replacement, and that was with an appointment and being told it would take 1 hour. Having a mechanic come to my work meant that I did not miss any time from my job. I have recommended your service to other women at my job who are also nervous about being taken advantage of by auto repair shops. Thank you for providing a service I can rely on.

Best mechanic ive ever met so nice and honest did a great job on the car and got it starting again great price i would recommend him to my friends and family

James was very professional and on time. Had never tried this service before, very satisfied, convienent, and price competitive. Will definately use again.


on October 19

James was early and did a great job. He did back-to-back appointments for both of my cars. He made recommendations about things I should be aware of, but I didn't feel any sales pressure. But it is good to know that he can do a lot more than just an oil change. I'll be using his services again, and I highly recommend him!

Trustworthy, honest, & knowledgeable are the most important qualities to me and James delivered on them. I thought my starter went out and he let me know that it was something else that happened to be a lot cheaper fix. This saved me money and gained me as long-term customer. Also, I had scheduled the apppointment less than 24 hours prior to the inspection. Thank you James!

he came to the house and Imeditly started working. he was good to work with and I felt good that he was picked to be the person to work on my car. I am looking forward to him finishing the job on Monday.


on March 09

James was excellent. He arrived a little early even and was very professional. He assessed the problem quickly, fixed it and it is so far it appears to be completely resolved. I would use this service again and wouldn't hesitate to ask for James.


on November 07

James was GREAT! I'm used to being stood up by mechanics who say they'll be at my house by a certain time. It was refreshing that, not only did I get messages saying James was on his way, he even called and asked if it was ok if he came EARLIER! He didn't rush through the job either, as if he was in a hurry to be elsewhere. He treated my car the way I imagine he'd treat his own. I've already given out all the referral cards he left me, and I know I'll soon be calling to arrange for him to come do the tune up I want next.
