mercedes clk 55 amg. james came in with a highly professional and friendly demeanor, he worked on the brake pads and horn replacements, with high precision . provided the initial assessment, and instruction on what he will be performing. He completed the estimated time in an expedient manner, provided me great information on overall car maintenance, and had diagnosed some issues of concerns, with no sales pressure at all. highly honest, highly skills, master technician that answered all of my answer for my wife clk amg, he even drove test and double check all the work done. it felt like we were in an actual mereced benz dealership, minus the overhead costs for their espresso machines. and your mechanics fees were extremely well priced ( perfect timing for us). the job was immaculate.thank you so much james and to the highly professional staff of your mechanic.com

Hi James, This is Richard who you helped drive around to fix a transmission fluid leak. Thanks again, the car made it where it was headed. Upon arrival, it was accepted and I got the payment I was hoping for that day.

I was a little nervous using this online service and not knowing the mechanic. My fears were quickly relieved when James texted me the same day to make sure I was ordering the correct parts and service. I knew then I was not going to be nickled and dimed like in your regular mechanic shops. James guided me in making sure the issue I was having was the starter. I would definitely use this service again if I can choose James.
