My name is Jason I've been an automotive repair business for 27 years I do everything from rebuild motors to electrical work I'd be happy to serve you.
I made an appointment for scheduled maintenance (replace timing belt/water pump/etc.) on a 2002 Honda Accord V6 (what a great car) because it was a bit overdue (but car is running great). Jason arrived on time and got right to work. Soon we were discussing the "almost like new condition" of those parts (they had been serviced several years earlier on schedule) and agreed that it was almost certainly not yet time to due this service. He then pressed on with some other inspection items and discussed in depth what he found (I do a lot of the routine work and small repairs on cars myself, so we were able to go into some detail). He made excellent recommendations of things to do (via both YourMechanic and on my own) in the near future. This was all very, very helpful, and certainly saved me significant money by NOT replacing parts that do not seem to need it yet (I'm fairly certain if I had taken the car into a dealer or other shop they would have replaced the timing belt/water pump/etc. without letting me know that it would probably be fine to wait at least another 15-20k miles). Even if he had replaced the timing belt etc., it would have been several hundred dollars less than quotes I had from local shops/dealers. A really good experience from my perspective; and Jason was very clearly knowledgeable and accommodating.
Because of the way my car died I was scared of how much it would cost to repair it and I was frightened to drive my car in case it happened again. I was thinking I might have to give up driving and take the bus. Jason came already prepared and familiar with the make and model of my car. He listened to my description of what happened and was genuinely concerned. If it was the alternator, replacing the battery wouldn't help. He tested the alternator first. I was relieved to learn the alternator was fine. Since the battery is located behind the tire, he showed me the wear on the brake pads and he said he would email me a quote for it but that I had time to budget for that repair. Jason educated me about the make and model of my car and what probably happened to the battery so that I have a greater appreciation now for my own car. Because Jason is an experienced, certified professional mechanic, I can drive my car now with confidence. Because Jason was honest and didn't use high pressure sales tactics, I can afford to keep driving and plan ahead to budget for future maintenance and repairs. I trust Jason and highly recommend him to anyone.
I wanted to have my timing belt and water pump and serpentine belt replaced on my V8 4Runner. Hard to find decent mechanics in my community so I looked online and chose My Mechanic. Prices were good and booked the appointment with Jason. Jason showed up on time and was courteous and explained all what would be done. It was a good experience and we were happy and will use Jason again for brakes and other maintenance on my cars.
Jason arrived on time and was extremely professional and knowledgeable. This was the first time a mechanic took the time to explain what was happening and what needed to be done. I have a certain distrust with auto repair shops and have always found it difficult to find a servicing center. With Jason and YourMechanic.com I no longer have that issue.
Great experience using YourMechanic, Jason was great and was able to pinpoint the problem. He suggested different things to try out and now my pathfinder is running like she used to. Thanks, will use this service again
Jason is one of the better mechanics I have come across in Tucson. Knowledgeable, thorough and honest. Definitely would use him again.
A good experience. Jason was courtious, on time and efficient. No negatives. Would deffinatelly use him again. C.M.
very nice he was thorough and knowledgeable with my inspection will use him again if the need arises
Jason was a very nice guy - he tried his best, but his best wasn't enough. Jason came out ($70) and "diagnosed" my issue pretty quickly - stating that I had a bad throttle body ($286) and it needed to be replaced. We agreed to meet later in the day and he would install the new part. Everything was going good - Jason got the part, installed it and .... the truck still didn't start. This puzzled Jason (a mechanic of 25 years), which ultimately worried me. Jason looked around at the truck but still could not figure out what was going on, so he told me I had to get my truck towed to the dealer and have them "flash" my ECM ($130) because the computer needed to be reprogrammed. So, at this point, I had spent $486 to get my truck working...except when the dealer "flashed" the truck, it still did not start. I ended up spending an additional $130 at the dealership for a true diagnosis (bad fuel pump - $400). So, when it was all said and done, my total amount paid was $1016. The problem is, I don't know if the throttle body was truly needing to be replaced, and I know for a fact that the "flash" wasn't necessary. Basically, when Jason's idea didn't work, he pawned me off onto the dealership. I feel like I paid for services and parts that I did not need. I contacted the company about this and they told me I'd hear back from them...they never contacted me. I would not recommend this service to anyone.
Professional and in depth preinspection. Would def wok with Jason again.
Super friendly, experienced, and helpful.
