James was amazing according to my father in law. So that means a lot. I had to be at work so we had our car at my father in laws house. James came over early with advance notice was prompt and ready to go. Had all his equipment and was in and out with in a couple of hours. My father in law was very pleased with his work and knowledge. Thank you James for making this task easy and stress free!

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 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.

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 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 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 very professional and great to work with. He arrived on time and finished the job in the time he estimated. I would definitely recommend booking with James.


on September 06

Awesome guy, he explained everything that was going on with the car and advised me on the best possible way to repair the car. Since then I've had James as my primary mechanic, I like to learn so he was the best mechanic for the job!


on July 20

James arrived ahead of schedule. He took the time to explain each phase the job to me. As usual, he had all the materials, tools and testing equipment required to complete the job. I am really grateful to have such a skilled professional work on my vehicle.


on July 15

James arrived on time with all the required tools and testing equipment. He tested and checked every possible cause before diagnosing the cause of my problem. I have been to dealerships and never has anyone performed such detailed diagnostic check. James is a consummate professional.


on July 19

I flew out from Texas to Hunington Beach, California to purchase a Land Rover. James met me right on scheduled time to do a PPI. He did a fabulous job, checked thoroughly things I would never known to do. He included me in the test drive using that time to discuss the vehicle, common issues known of the vehicle, maintenance, recommendations. I felt fully informed to make the decision to purchase with all my questions and concerns professionally answered. THANK YOU JAMES!!! GOD BLESS!

James was really nice. He did a very good inspection on the car after changing my battery. Now I feel much safer about this car. He definitely knows what he's doing.

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.

Great guy, helped with all my questions and concerns. Relayed information as he went and made me feel confident with the vehicle I want to purchase. Will definitely recommend and use service again. Thanks again!

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 did a great job replacing my radiator. He called to see if he could come a little early which worked out great. He was very professional, cleaned everything up after he was all done. Asked if I had any question about anything on my car and gave me a few pointers about an issue I was having with my hood shocks. I will for sure be calling him again when I need any service done to my car. I have already recommended him to 3 of my friends looking to get some work done on their cars.


on September 16

Thank you so much James and YourMechanic. Great service and communication all around. I would request James and use YouMechanic again for anything else.


on April 09

James was very friendly & answered any questions i had. He left everything neat in the garage before he left. It's as if he wasn't there ( in a good way). Seems like a very nice person.

We neede our power window motor replaced in our Element. We contacted the dealer and were quoted a price range between 475 to 600 bucks,ouch. Started a web search to find out if there was another alternative. We came across your site and figured why not let's check it out. All we can say is what a pleasant surprise. Our Mechanic James was right on time and did an outstanding job,true professional. The amazing thing is not only did he fix the window issue but he also did a complete check of our car and sent a detailed report with pictures of any other recommended service that our car might need in the future. The best part your quoted a fixed price not an estimate. Our fixed price after sending the details of the service needed was $257 which was significantly lower than the dealer price and on top of that when we received our receipt we were charged $201 . Seriously it's refreshing to find a service like yours,we will recommend you to everyone and continue to use you for our service needs.

I had an awesome experience with the service given to my car by James! I will surely recommend him and will get him again whenever I need service in the future.

Jim was reliable and very knowledgeable about cars and what needed to be done. Love this service, wish I knew about it sooner, no more wasting all day at the dealership.
