On time, friendly. Figured out my issue and explained it to me in detail. Coming back tomorrow to install the part i need.

Very knowledgeable and helpful, I needed my car scanned and a lot of shops in my area do not have the proper scanner to scan a 1.5 OBD (thanks GM) however, Joe had the right equipment to get the job done. unfortunately, my problem was beyond the code to replace a part and found that i had a vacuum leak at lower manifold. I would recommend Joe to anyone who may need any type of repair.

Joe was outstanding! -- knowledgeable, courteous, sociable, and prompt. He was at my door at 7:00a, the appointment time I requested. Your online appointment scheduler, however, suggested that "my mechanic might arrive anytime between 7:00-8:00a!" Kudos to Joe for arriving at the time I booked for service.

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!

Imagine my frustration when I come out of a store and my car is dead. I knew it couldn't be the battery as it was a year old, but never know I guess. I remembered that I used this service before and I went ahead and booked another appt. I was booked for 5:02 pm and the time was around 3p., waiting two hours is better than trying to get it towed and maybe looked at next week sometime. My assigned mechanic, Joe, actually showed up 45 mins before the appt and replaced my starter for me in about an hour. I got on my way home before 5:45! I was a happy customer. Thank you Joe, and hope you got home to enjoy your football game, because you deserve to relax. Thank you again.

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!



Honda Accord
on March 31

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.

As a first time user of "Your Mechanic" services I was unsure what to expect. Joe arrived a little earlier than the appointment which was fine with me. It was not unexpected since I was able to track him using the app. He expertly completed the strut replacement within the estimated time. Joe was polite, and extremely knowledgeable. He explained what he was doing and why he was doing it. Following completion of the repair he gave the car a thorough inspection and took it for a test ride. Joe took care to completely clean the work area. I will undoubtedly call on Joe for future automobile repairs and service. Did I mention the $200 I saved compared to a brick and mortar garage estimate?

on April 29

Punctual, friendly and very knowledgeable. I felt at ease talking with Joe. I know the basics of working on cars and he was great about explaining everything he was doing. I've been to dealerships who have told me that they need to wait for the ONE person who is trained on dealing with my unique engine and he knew exactly what was wrong and was 100 percent accurate. Thank you Joe!!!

on April 10

Joe arrived on time, was very thorough, and finished the repair in a timely manner. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs their car serviced. Will definitely use him if any future issues arise.

on April 13

Joe was phenomenal! My first time using YourMechanic, and I may never go back... Joe was early, professional, friendly, and got the job done in a timely manner. He didn't even make an issue of the fact that I told him the wrong engine-- requiring him to to get a different part! All in all, I got my car fixed for less money than I anticipated, and I got to relax at my pool while waiting for it! I highly recommend YourMechanic, and Joe!

on April 22

Joe was prompt (early!) communicated clearly, answered my questions, worked quickly and efficiently and got done ahead of schedule. I felt comfortable handing him the keys and having him work on my car outside my home, I also felt like the experience was more transparent, I could see that he used genuine parts, and was available if I had questions. I will definitely use Joe again and recommend him to friends and family. I loved that I didn't have to tie up my afternoon at the dealership.

on April 28

Joe did a great job as always! Showed up right on time, was very fast and friendly, and made several good recommendations about maintenance items I had overlooked.



Honda Civic
on October 02

Joe was very helpful, and very well informed. He was able to identify the problem with my vehicle faster than anyone I have ever seen. Very professional and knows his job so well it's almost art watching him work.

on October 05

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.

on September 28

Great mechanic. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Arrived on time and performed work to all expectations. Cleaned up when done and finished in his estimated timeframe. Great experience. Would highly recommend him.
