I've been an automotive technician since 1978 and have worked on Domestic, Asian, and European vehicles. I'm skilled in almost every aspect of automotive repair and I specialize in diagnostics, electrical, drivability, and air conditioning in all makes and models. No challenge is too big or too small and I love working with customers to get their cars back on the road.

HELLO YM, JOE WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL. HES WAS PUNCTUAL AND ANSWERED ALL MY QUESTIONS ON HIS VISIT. HE ALSO EXPLAINED AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE (NOT GETTING TOO TECHNICAL) WHAT HE WAS DOING AND FINDING PROBLEMATIC WITH MY AUDI A3. I LEARNED QUITE A FEW THINGS ABOUT MY VEHICLE ALSO. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND JOE HOUGH AS YOUR MECHANIC TO SERVICE YOUR AUTO, A VERY ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE AND SOLVED THE PROBLEM HE CAME TO FIX!!! THANK AGAIN JOE, TILL NEXT TIME, DCV IN TAMPA

Not only was he on time, but what impressed me the most was his professional behavior. I will definitely use Joe going forward with all my vehicle needs.


on June 01

Joe was at my home before six which I was hoping he would be early because i had some erans to run. The whole diagnoses took about 45 minutes to complete.


on May 16

Joe is very engaging and personable. It breaks issues down into understandable components (if your not a car buff like me). I would highly recommend his services.

I needed an inspection for a used car I was buying sight unseen. Joe did a thorough job of inspecting the car and was very helpful in my decision to purchase the car. Thanks Joe!


on May 04

Joe did an excellent job, at the exact amount promised, so I saved hundreds of dollars with Joe & yourmechanic.com. If you want the easiest, highest quality, lowest costs mechanic, go to yourmechanic.com. It's an absolute no brainier!

Joe arrived at exactly 8am and was done at 9am...my boyfriend and I we're very pleased with the service and impressed in how he quickly and efficiently fixed my car... he was very professional and will schedule any future auto needs...

Excellent service. Very nice. I had placed more services on my appointment than I ended up needing. When Joe evaluated the car and noticed I didn't need some services completed, he spoke to me honestly and we decided a course together. This ended up saving me money while ensuring my car was working at pristine condition. This was my first time using YourMechanic, along with Joe, and will continue to use this service and him as long as they are both around.


on April 21

Joe was OUTSTANDING! I am thoroughly impressed with Joe and YourMechanic.com! Not only was the diagnosis less than a shop, but the repair is also less, and he explained EXACTLY what the problem was. BONUS, he alerted me to a ZERO cost preventative maintenance item that I could do, that could potentially save me thousands of dollars in repair costs. This makes him my new best friend! I will not be taking my car to a shop again.


on April 18

Awesome job! Went above and beyond. Since the 1st service I've been telling everyone to ditch the over priced dealership and enjoy the convience of them coming to you. Joe was awesome, highly recommend!


on May 22

Straight forward, there was a delay because of another appointment running over but he gave me a heads up way ahead of time.


on April 29

Joe has given me excellent advice about the car and it really helped me to decide and negotiate for the car! I can only recommend him!


on February 23

Joe was on-time, communicated well, thorough, and professional. I would highly recommend him! He completed my pre purchase used car inspection in a timely fashion, and was very honest and comprehensive with his final report. Thanks again!


on September 21

Joe was great. We had a little hiccup after the initial work was done but Joe came back and fixed the issue. I have already recommended him to my parents and colleagues at work.


on February 02

everything went pretty well. My appointment had to be rescheduled a couple times but Joe was always in touch in advance. The repair went smoothly and the car is working well. Would totally recommend!


on January 27

Joe was very punctual and upon arrival found I needed a replacement part to my battery connection. With this newfound data he could not do the repair needed that day. He arranged to come the following day (his day off) to do the repair as my safety was important to him, and my vehicle was in no way safe in its current state (master cylinder was out ). He cared enough to take his own personal time to accommodate! Will definitely call on him again for any future repairs.

Great service. Joe arrived right on time, was very knowledgeable and friendly and put me at ease since this was my first time using this service----he even saved me a few dollars from the original price. I would not hesitate to use Your Mechanic again and will definitely recommend Joe to friends and colleagues. I wish all businesses were as professional and satisfactory. I was also lmpressed with the close communication via e mails. Great Job all around.

He was early, arrived at the dealer before I did. He Immediately got to the pre purchase inspection. Joe was very kind and down to earth. Would definitely book him again


on February 12

Joe was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He went above and beyond to resolve my issue. I would definitely use him again for any future repair issues.


on September 13

Joe did everything he could to help out our son to get his car fixed. Although we ended up having to bring it into the dealer to complete the car's problem, he gave us excellent service and was very helpful to work with.


on February 06

Joe is a class act and a true professional. Worked with us to get our Van back on the road and he went above and beyond. I highly recommend him to anyone! No job is too big or small.


on April 10

This was my second experience with Joe and just like the first one was very helpful and went the extra mile to get my vehicle fixed. He is very knowledgeable and shares this with you.


on March 18

Joe was great! Very friendly, very open, told me in detail about the repair and made me feel very confident in the repair. This was my first time using the service; I would definitely recommend it!

I had a wonderful experience with Joe a few days ago. He arrived promptly at 7 A.M. and immediately got to work. An hour later my starter was replaced and I was able to go to work. I am so happy I decided to use this service and have told many family and friends about it since.


on April 02

Joe was excellent. Good job. I do my own work but I was getting into areas where I would get stuck or required two people! I was skeptacal at first of the business model (your Mechanic) but it's the people that make this work. You have the best man working for you hands down. I like working on my car myself but that some jobs area little too big or I'm getting lazier ! I will use your service again ........... Only because of Mr Hough, excellant attitude and calm approach towards the job . Reference to the question below. I have and will reccommend your company to others I know based on my experience with Joe. In other words it's "Joe" I recommend ! This could have been a different outcome for the worst if it was someone else! I would reccommend you do what you can to retain Mr Hough! I choose your company on a risk. I needed help cause I do my own work . I wish I knew about you guys before ! This is exactly what I needed ! I will recommend you guys to everyone. However let me be clear it's the mechanic I'm recommending! So when answering the questions below its based on the above experience!

Totally great experience. Not used to getting a call from my repair person in advance of the appointment to go over my problem. What a great business model. Joe is very knowledgeable and I won't hesitate to call him in future
