Joel as usual, showed up for his appointment ready to work. He efficiently replaced the water pump and radiator in my Jeep. At that time, I pointed him to an issue with the exhaust manifold replacement, he previous performd. He quickly diagnosed the issue and fixed the issue on a subsequent appointment through a warranty repair.

Joel was kind, professional, helpful, and completed my repair with efficiency. I've already booked him again for a few weeks out for a different repair. This service is amazing!

Very pleased with the service, Joel was very professional , polite and skilled, he got right to it and completed sooner than expected. He was very proactive in that he called ahead of time to get my vehicle's VIN number and was able to insure he was bringing the correct part. I am extremely pleased with his service and would recommend him to my friends and family. Thanks Joel !

Quick and efficient!! Joel took the time to explain everything in a way that I could understand. Went over other problems I have and sent quotes. He was very friendly, polite and easy to talk to. I will book him for future needs. I recommend this mechanic, hands down!!

Joel is great. Arrived right on time, did an excellent job (tune-up), talked to me about a couple of other issues, showed me exactly where and what the issues were, and we set-up next steps to take care of them. Being that the car has over 380k miles, the issues were to be expected, but he found them when the chain car repair place missed them on some previous work. Great personality, easy to work with. I couldn't be more satisfied with the experience.

Joel is always polite and courteous. He tells it like it is and he is very quick to fix it. He is the only that I have used from YourMechanic I trust so far.

Joel is AWESOME! He has worked on my car a few times now. Each time he has been on time, friendly, knowledgeable, professional, courteous and discusses with you what he's going to do to the car. He gets to work very quickly and always finishes in a timely manner. He's very knowledgeable and I have confidence in him when he fixes my car. It's hard to find an honest mechanic that you can trust and I can truly say that I have found that in Joel. I know 100% that what he tells me is what I need to do to my car. I was concerned on this last visit, that my car was going to cost more than what I had originally planned. Joel actually save me money on this job! I have nothing but good things to say about Joel. I will always call upon Joel when my car needs repair. I have the utmost confidence in Joel and I feel very comfortable in recommending him! He's just the best! Thank you, Joel!

Joel promptly arrived at the appointed time. He was tasked with performing 5 maintenace services. He promptly completed the five tasks. In addition, he diagnosed another issue that I was going to achedule an inspection for, saving me the cost of the inspection. I had a good experience using Joel.

on October 30

To be fair, he did not arrive to the appointment until about 45 minutes after the appointment time (appointment was at 8am, he showed up around 8:45am). Even in light of this, I have no hesitation in recommending Joel to anyone else looking for a mechanic. He was extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and got the job done quickly. I am certainly looking forward to my next appointment with him.

This was my second time using Joel from Your Mechanic. For Joel, time is money so he quickly got started replacing both belts. He finished within 40 minutes and then took time to diagnose why my engine light was on. It turned out to be a simple fix, reset the gas cap. If you are considering using Your Mechanic, I highly recommend their service and especially Joel.

on November 04

Joel is an elite professional! So glad I found him and I will call on him in the future. Class act and super knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

Joel is the expert, professional and pleasant mechanic I have ever met. He is clear concise, and offers sound device. He is always on time, never makes me feel rushed, or ignorant. He respects my views, and comments, while clarifying any questions or points of concern. I will forever use Your Mechanic, and Joel for my vehicle needs.

On time, test drove to ease my mind! Only took less than 30 minutes! Did not completely rid of the engine light because it came back on today 10/10/17 as he warned.

on November 16

Joel demonstrated his knowledgeable and skill by working efficiently and timely in discovering what the problem was.

This is the 2nd time Joel has worked on my car. He was right on time and got to work right away. He was very professional, and a pleasure to talk to. He diagnosed the problem and discussed money saving options to correct it. He answered all of my questions patiently.

I was initially skeptical in going for YourMechanic, but thought let me give it a try, instead of losing hundreds of dollars in the repair shop. When I booked the appointment, I preferred morning due to other personal priorities, and Joel came on-time at 7am and did a great job in inspecting the vehicle, apart from doing the brake pad installation. I wanted waited for a few months before posting the review, but now I should post the review as I have not faced any problems with the installation, for the past 5 months. I highly recommend Joel... Thanks a lot Joel.

on June 27

Great customer service very knowledgeable would recommend using him to all of my friends. Answered every question I had and explained everything to me what he was doing

on April 03

Joel was very nice he came out the day before and did an inspection and told me what the problem and told me he didn't have the part till the next day. I was very pleased with him. Both appointments he showed up early which I was very surprised cause my home can be somewhat difficult to find. The service was done in a short amount of time. Very pleased and will recommend them to friends and family.

2nd time I've had Joel work on my 1993 Miata. First time was for both Serpentine belts being replaced after one snapped. The second time was today for my P/S Pressure hose. Both times were quick and very professionally done. The steering instantly felt smoother and there were no leaks at all afterwards. And the belts haven't troubled me since. If you need someone to work on your car and get the job done right the first , You can count on Joel.

on July 03

Joel arrived a few minutes early and I love the feature where you get messaged when he's on the way and you can even track him! He was very professional and got right to work replacing the serpentine/drive belt. Even though Toyota makes it difficult to replace the belts on a Highlander, he was very proficient and done under an hour. He also did diagnostics at no extra charge and recommended other services(with quotes), but didn't try and sell me. Instead, he was very honest in letting me know that the recommended services weren't urgent, but something I need to address long term. Very satisfied with the service and a big thank you for saving the Fam Vacation!:)

Joel was one of the most informative auto technician I have ever met. He was proactive in explaining me all the issues and also diagnosed and checked couple of more issues that might be impacting my car. I would highly recommend him.

on December 01

Joel was awesome and very professional and honest. I thought I needed all of my brake pads replaced, but he told me I only needed the back pads replaced. So he saved me some money! I will definitely be requesting him in the future. I will also recommend him to my friends.
