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 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 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.

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 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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Great mechanic! He came on time and finished on time. He checked my Ford and you can tell he's had a lot of experience with it.

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.

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 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

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 did a wonderful job. He changed out the starter with out a hitch and now I do not half to worry about an intermittent functioning starter. I was going to change it myself and then looked at the hassle of it...I did not want to deal with it. James made it look easy, but I knew it would have been a chore for me. He was very nice and professional. Gave me some recommendations without being a sales person. I felt he was honest and sincere. If you have a need for a mechanic, James is a great person to call up to the plate. YourMechanic is a great service! James...Thank You for doing a great job! Oh, on a side note, if this was done at a shop, the mechanic would probably not have finished in a couple of hours. I was up and driving around very quickly...not an all day project.

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.

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 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.


on August 19

James was a great person and very knowledgeable and skillful mechanic. He is the type of person you want working for you to make your company successful. I would recommend him to anyone and you should hire more guys like him.


on August 21

James called me for information shortly after I booked the appt. online. I did this booking after 8PM and did not expect to hear from anyone for at least a couple days. This was a pleasant surprise. I recommend using your mechanic for all your mobile mechanic needs. they were prompt, professional & the price was considerably lower than had I taken into "the shop". I highly recommend your mechanic & James Winovitch specifically for his excellent service & caring for our needs.
