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

James is a lifesaver! He brought my Aerostar back from what I thought was going to be a trip to the scrap yard. I can't recommend him enough. Excellent work. Exemplary service!

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 showed up on time and quickly replaced some idler pulley's that were creating issues after having my alternator and serpentine belt replaced. He answered all of my questions and was very thorough in his repairs and explanation of maintenance I will need to tend to in the near future.

on May 17

This is the second time James has worked on my car. He is very professional and does quality work. I had rear brakes and a window switch replaced. It was done in less time than quoted and everything is working perfectly. He also did a comprehensive inspection of my car and provided me with other recommended services I may need in the near future. I love the convenience of not having to take a day off of work and drive to a shop or the dealership to get my car fixed. James and the Your Mechanic site are excellent and I will definitely use both again. Thank you James.
