JAMES NEED TO COMMUNICATE MORE WITH THE CLIENT ON WHAT'S HE'S WORKING ON AND THE PROGRESS OF WHAT HE'S WORKING ON. HE SEEMS TO BE WELL EQUIPPED AS A MECHANIC. VERY GOOD MAN AND QUIET.

Very professional service I will definitely be scheduling my next recommended service for next month. It was a pleasure working with Jim Carol Holland

As usual, he came in on time, finished his job quiet and fast, and left real clean with such an polite and professional manner. Thank you and it is pleasure doing business with you.

Thank you James, you did a spectacular job diagnosing my Hyundai Elantra. You saved us a couple thousand dollars. We will certainly recommend you to others in our area. Thank you again. Dan smith and Diana and John Ferguson

James arrived early, worked quickly and left my car very clean. He is knowledgeable and friendly, and I will definitely work with him again.

On time and he got down to business. I had scheduled brakes for my truck and he showed me why the rear brakes were fine just not adjusted properly which he did. He save me a few hundred dollars. Neighbors saw his work and scheduled their Jaguar to be done by James. Great find.

Fantastic. Showed up early. That never happens. Sorted out my problem quickly. And even gave me a discount on the total charge. Truly a pleasure to have someone provide such a great service. I would highly recommend James. And I will use him again without a doubt. Thanks James - I can't say enough good things about you.

James was very kind and professional, he was even able to show up early to assess the situation. I did not feel like he tried to up-sell or "get one over on me". I would definitely use James again!


on June 26

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.

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

I recently had a shady AAA battery installer who installed a new battery with one of the negative connection to the battery not tighten correctly. After a couple of days driving my car will not start and battery is basically drained (so I was told by AAA technician). So, I called AAA the second time, the same technician now tells me that my alternator is bad. He then gave me 2 shops to call and told me that the first one would replace the battery for me (the one that is close by his office.....). He then asked me if I wanted to get it tow right then and there. I told him "no", since my car was parked at my house. Something is just not right in my mind. So I went ahead and bought an alternator and booked James W. with YourMechanic. He came and did an inspection before he starts to disassemble anything. Sure enough, my suspicion was correct there is nothing wrong with my alternator. James W. saved me hundreds by doing the inspections first. He is very professional, polite and very knowledgeable. I would definitely have him perform all my future repairs. If you live in the Orange County California area, you should definitely have him service your car. He is especially knowledgeable with European cars. My is a Range Rover.

James arrived 10min early which i really really appreciated he came to my work so i was able to clock in on time he was very professional & polite my car was done in approximately hour and half. VERY HAPPY!!

James was awesome! Was fifteen minutes early and he fixed my hazard signal with ease! Now that I know more about this service I'll be keeping it in mind for anything else that comes up.


on September 13

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!

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.

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.

James showed up as scheduled and did a very quick front brake job, mentioned I didn't need rear brakes even though I thought I did so it saved me $80. He was very knowledgable on other items I felt my car needed and I will book him again. Thanks 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.

I was able to schedule a same-day appointment with James. He worked quickly, explained what was going on, and answered all of my questions. He was able to inspect and repair within the same day, and my car is running smoothly now. I'm really glad I chose YourMechanic, and I'm pretty sure I cut costs by using them over a repair shop, which I first took my car to get checked.


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 06

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.

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.


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.
