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 courteous and efficiently completed the door lock repair to my Honda Odyssey as scheduled. I will ask for James by name the next time I require service.

James has been my go-to guy for all my car maintenance issues. He shows up early / on-time and offers advice for me when I have questions. I'll keep going to James when I have issues.

Excellence. Polite, punctual, knowledgeable, helpful, and efficient. Could not have asked for better service. James was awesome! 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 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 March 22

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 April 10

Was on time and accomplished all that was agreed upon. He also checked the RV for any other possible problems. Was very professional.


on March 10

James was very professional! he was running late and called to notify me. he came prepared to work with all the necessary tools and equipment. He did a very thorough job and was polite and helpful from start to finish! I will definitely be recommending James to my friends and family.


on April 14

James was courteous and professional. Please don't hesitate to use James. Although I wish he got more of my jokes.... lol.

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 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.

James was very professional & thorough. I am very pleased with the service I received and will not only use him again in the future, but will also recommend him to my friends.

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.


on October 19

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!


on October 14

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


on October 03

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 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.


on December 08

Excellent experience. On time. Professional. Courteous. Honest. I requested brake pad repair (only because dealer said so, and I already procrastinated a year), but James took a look and said it's still good! No need for replacement, but James still did a thorough inspection on the car. Appreciate the time he took to explain things, the audio and visual report as well.

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 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!
