Great job. Thanks, Joe!

Joe is Excellent. We have used him several times now. He has great common sense on repairs to older cars. He has been very knowledgeable and personable. He is a great guy & we are lucky to be using him!!!

on October 20

I received a tune up, and a air cabin filter replacement. Joe also inspected my car and stated that it was in good condition. He is affordable and fair. He did not try to get me to get unneeded maintenance completed on the vehicle. I will definitely be using his services again,

Joe knows what he is doing when it comes to cars. Joe was on time for the appointment. He installed the Clutch Master Cylinder and I have a clutch again. I can't ask for more really, plus I did not have to have my car towed anywhere. Very happy with Your Mechanic and Joe.

Very impressed with the whole experience. Joe was on time and very personable/ professional from the moment I met him. He loves what he does and it shows. I'm one that likes to watch and learn about what is being repaired. He answered all my questions. Will definitely use your mechanic again in the future and will ask for Joe. Thank you Joe! 馃槉

Joe's an excellent mechanic with many years of experience he shows up before time to get the job started. He replaced my timing belt and water pump and fan belts on my 2002 Toyota 4Runner. I purchase the parts from Advance Auto Parts but it had a defective gasket he had to come back and redo it because of the gasket. He rescheduled the appointment a few days later and finish the job perfect. I suggest instead of buying your own Parts like I did get your parts from Joe this way everything is guaranteed with no extra labor charges.

Joe was great as a person and a mechanic. I just bought this car and my mind is much more at ease about what is wrong with the car and just how serious it is. I just left him alone to do his thing and he was shortly forthcoming with all the things wrong with the car. My engine light was staying on and had some AC issues and one of my tires needs to be replaced. My advice to others is to use this service before you buy that car you like. It can save you money and headaches.

Joe did a great job with my 2011 BMW 328i. He showed up early, articulated what was wrong with my vehicle, and efficiently repaired my vehicle. He was a good communicator and also is very personable. I would recommend him to anyone who needs work done.

on August 19

Joe is an awesome mechanic....on time 7:15 am as scheduled, meticulous and efficient work, I could not be happier. Fixed my AC expansion valve, vacuumed it down and recharged the ICE cold now. Highly recommended, Cost $400 less than the Toyota dealer quoted, and was done in my driveway. Thank you so much JOE!!!!!

Joe was fast and efficient as always. We would refer him to anyone who is looking for a reliable, honest mechanic and will definitely continue to use him for future maintenance.

on August 02

My experience with Joe and Your Mechanic was nothing but positive. From my first encounter I believed that this company understood customer service. Great communication, showed up on time, did what he said he would do and gave a quote on some other issues I needed to have done. A mechanic that comes to your house FOR LESS than a garage? Why would I use anyone else?

Joe was great! Replaced my battery and was so knowledgeable about BMW's I felt I was in good professional care. I have a new mechanic and his name is Joe!

on May 23

Joe was early and very helpful. In fact after his visual inspection he found something that the dealer had not done correctly and saved me huge just on that alone. I am very pleased and waiting for a part to come in so he can repair that. I will be using Joe for all my car needs in the future. Very professional and knowledgable and went above and beyond.

on February 15

Joe was great!! He arrived on time and performed the repair within the time frame that was given. He took the time to explain what he was doing. I will definitely use this service again, and request Joe.

This was my first experience with Joe Hough did an amazing job. The appointment was for 7 PM (scheduled on the phone with a rep) but he called and asked to come earlier which was better for me (he showed at 5 pm)! Speaking with him on the phone 2 days prior to my appointment, he sounded very professional, friendly and like someone I could trust right off the bat. He got to my house and completed changing my valve cover gaskets in 2.5 hours. He did a great job on the car and kept the driveway clean. I would highly recommend Joe for you. Joe gets a 10+ rating.

WOW what a service! Mechanic at my house by 1pm when I made the appointment only 12 hours earlier. My Mechanic was Joe H. He arrived early, was very professional and courteous and went right to work. He was very knowledgeable about everything and not only his specialties. He pointed out problems and solutions to things I had overlooked. I have found not only a new mechanic, but a trustworthy one.
