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

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.

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.

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 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!

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

James was FANTASTIC!! He was able to help me negotiate all the problems that needed to be addressed about the car I wanted to buy. Because he was there, the owner didn't hesitate to make the corrections and provide me proof and warranties. James was courteous, professional, knowledgeable and through. I will definitely tell ppl about my great experience.

Good man, quality work, could not be more pleased. Took him about 45 minuets to take care of the service which did not matter to me because i was at 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.

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!

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 was on time and very professional he got right to work and did a great job I would highly recommend him to all my friends and family!!keep up the good work 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.

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 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!


on January 30

James arrived ahead of the scheduled time. He is a real professional. James explained every step of the process. Arrived with all the tools and meters required for the job. He did more checks than any service personnel at the dealership ever did. Talk about being impressed. Great personality. I knew my car was in good hands. I have the highest level of trust in his abilities. I will call on James expertise to care for my vehicle from this day on. Thank you so very much.

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 arrived at the scheduled time. He explained in detail every aspect of the job. James had every tool required for the job. Completed the job exactly according to the estimate, then carefully performed quality assurance service checks. Great job.

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.

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 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 31

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.
