Fantastic service. Customer service was great, fixed my Nissan Xterra with no issues. It runs great. James showed up one time, completed the work quickly and provided me information on what was fixed and what needed to be completed on the car. Will not hesitate to book in the future. Sandra

The problem has to be referred to an auto upholsterer for help. But Jim was outstanding and professional. He explained my options for my particular issue and now I can decide what to do. I definitely would ask for him in the future.

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

James is going to be my "GO TO MECHANIC" from now on . I had 2 cars that decided to die at the same time so i tried yourmechanic.com and they sent out James, He arrived on time and quickly found out that it was a simple repair that would only take a hr to fix so all the labor would be covered under the inspection fee , I just had to buy the part and he would come back out to put it in. I was very pleased so i had him inspect my other car when he came back out and that one only need a simple fix also and the labor would be covered under the inspection fee also. I am very pleased with James and will always use him for any repairs that are needed. Thank you James for being a honest mechanic!!

A true gentleman who knows his stuff. He was very knowledgeable, had everything he needed with him and was more than willing to tell me exactly what he was doing and would answer my questions very respectfully. He is a very trustworthy person. He talked to me with indiscrimination (I'm a female), unlike other mechanics I have dealt with.

This is a service that I will always use if needed...the mechanic showed up on time was quick fast and efficient and he gave us a quote for the other things wrong with the car. I am very pleased :)

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.

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

James inspected the car for a private sale purchase. I was nervous about the car, which is why I used 'yourmechanic'. James arrived right on schedule. He was professional and polite. He did a thorough inspection and gave me honest feedback of the cars condition. Because of James' feedback, I felt comfortable and went ahead and purchased the vehicle. Thanks James!


on March 09

James was nothing less then professional. He explained everything he did to my satisfaction. And left me feeling good about this repair. I will definitely recommend and use your service again. Thank you

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.

James was very thorough, knowledgeable, and very nice. I highly recommend James for anyone needing service and will be booking James for all of my vehicle needs in the future!

Once again, James shows up on-time, fixes the issue, and helps me out by doing small extra tasks I was asking him, like where to leave my keys, etc. as I had to go to the Doctors Office. Really cool dude, would recommend to anyone and everyone.

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!

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.

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.

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.


on August 18

As my first repair on my first car, I feel so lucky to have found such fair, professional and quality service. James was extremely patient with the hassles of repairing my car and was very easy to communicate with. He was able to answer all of my questions thoroughly and was beyond reasonable when it came to tackling any other potential issues I had (mechanical or cosmetic), with a realistic, savvy approach; I could tell he was in no rush to pressure me into pricey and unnecessary services like I would expect from a shop. I know my car is in trustworthy hands and I look very forward to letting him help keep my car in the best shape possible.


on August 18

I had a dealership give me a list of issues wrong with my jeep, and then I had James take a look at the list of issues and he was very honest in what actually needed to be done. He saved me a lot of money and fixed only what was necessary. Very honest. I will be using him for ALL future work on my cars.

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 August 23

James is an extremely experienced mechanic. He kept me posted of his arrival time, allowed me to watch the repair and answered all my questions. More importantly, he fixed my car. He is now my "go to" guy. I will certainly use him for my next car repair and refer him to my friends.

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.

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.
