I was a bit worried having my MB ML 350 Bluetec worked on, but James did a great job and I would use him again.


on September 27

James had everything required to perform a comprehensive inspection. He took time to explain in detail all his findings. He is a consummate professional.

Prompt and courteous service. Mr James came ahead of scheduled time and kindly waited till I called. He did the job of power steering fluid exchange without haste. He even did multi/point courtesy diagnosis. Worth to pay in-home service that won't rip you off like dealers does. I highly recommend Mr James and Your Mechanic.

Probably THE Most Professional On Demand interaction I have ever experienced! He arrived early for the appointment and was patient in my delayed responses whenever he contacted me by text. I asked if he was local because I would like to continue working with him.

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.

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 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.


on November 18

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 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.

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.


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!


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.

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.


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!

James communicated very well. He arrived ready to work. James was very friendly and fast! He called me with updates and made me feel comfortable about using the "Your Mechanic" service. I would definitely recommend James to my friends and family.

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.


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 August 05

James is great. It's the second time he's worked with my car and I trust him working on my car because my car is rare. Thank you for the great job. Will recommend you always.


on October 14

It was my first use of yourmechanic so I was a bit nervous. James arrived on time. Good first impression. Then, he's friendly and professional. Also, carefully listened to my request and gone above and beyond to fulfill. Very satisfied!!


on July 13

Despite my fact that my car had died in a precarious spot and that it was not a cool and breezy day James had a great attitude throughout the process and worked tirelessly until my car was running again. I knew prior to this repair session that there were other issues with my car I'd still need to address down the road (very minor things) and I'm already planning to request James for those repairs as well.

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.


on October 07

James was excellent. He discovered the problem quickly and talked me through a few options for repair. He took pictures of the broken parts and offered me advice for dealing with it. It turned out my car was not safe to drive and James helped me understand that.


on September 29

James arrived on time and was very polite. He was very knowledgeable about my old hotrod and diagnosed the problem without delay. I would not hesitate to call James for help on my next problem.


on July 10

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.
