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.

James, was wonderful and made me feel confident from the start that he would do a great job inspecting a vehicle for me. He arrived early and his report was very detailed and honest even we he knew he was giving me bad news. I would use him again!

After both times that James provided services for my car, it ran smoother than it did before. He also fully examined the car, and told me what else was wrong with it and sent the quotes to my email.

He arrived right on time and patiently answered all the questions I had. Will definitely be using this service again in the future.

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
