Jonathan

32 years of experience
Tampa-St. Petersburg (Sarasota), FL

I have been a professional automotive technician since 1986, but started learning the ins and outs of the trade at age 9 in my uncle's repair shop. Over my career I've worked in small independent shops and major dealerships, and I've gained experience with all types of Domestic, European, and Asian cars. Open communication with my customers is key to solving problems, and I treat every vehicle I work on as if it were my own!

Thank you for cleaning up the mess. Sequoia sounds good.

At first I was a little doubtful about using these services. However, John and the Your Mechanic team put my mind to rest. My little Smart runs really good now. I appreciate the punctuality and professionalism provided. Thank you. Can I please have John Padua for my future appointments as well? Thank you!

Mr Jonathan was very professional and helpful. He was honnest and went above and beyond what he actually came for. I’m definitely going to do business with him more.

Had a misfire agter replacing plugs, wires and injector. After Jonathan confirmed the misfire, he advised for me to pull plug in that cylinder and check for cracked plug, next would have been compression check to see if valves were leaking or broken spring. Problem was solved when i pulled plug and found the plug damaged at the gap.

Jonathan is very knowledgeable very personable he was prompt courteous and professional it was a pleasure to get to know him and he does excellent work if I ever need a mechanic again I will definitely ask for him, I would like to say he is my mechanic!

Received notification via text that he was on his way (ahead of the scheduled 10:30 AM appointment, but that was fine) and was able to track his location on my phone. Friendly and knowledgeable. Completed the work and cleaned the garage floor from any fluid spills. Talked about further ways to care for my car's issues, signed on his phone that the job was complete and authorized payment. Very convenient, efficient and, in my case, much less than the local garage (about $300 less!) If you know what the issue is with your vehicle, this is definitely the way to go. I would recommend Your Mechanic and Jonathan to anyone.

Coming in to complete work started and left apart by another mechanic must be tough position to be in. Not only were the parts ordered by the one who started the work wrong, the diagnosis was wrong. Jonathan can out on a Sunday (his normal day off) but he correctly diagnosed the problem correctly and completed the repairs quickly. After the first mechanic failed to repair the problem, I was NEVER going to contract Your Mechanic again. However, Jonathan saved the day and I will not hesitate to use Your Mechanic again IF Jonathan be the mechanic sent to me. THANK YOU JONATHAN

I needed a professional to scope out any and all issues of pre-owned vehicles. Jonathan fielded my questions and made inquiries to the sales representative. Jonathan's recommendations will be forwarded to car dealership to correct certain issues before purchase.


on December 29

I understood Jonathan's comparison of vehicles, which was instrumental in my decision to purchase one for my specific needs. Jonathan was very patient as I handled a payment issue that was resolved in a few minutes.

He went above and beyond to make sure I understood the issue with my car. He was early to the appointment, and was super nice and polite. He was also very thorough with his inspection.

Jonathan has worked on my car twice and both times he has gone far above and beyond. First time he came out, he chased away a snake that was resting in my engine. Then, when my battery wouldn’t start, he took the battery out of his own truck and used it to get my car started (my car had been sitting for a couple of months). The second time, he spent 5 hours working on a job which ended up being much more complicated than was expected. He stayed and worked by lamplight to make sure it was done right before he left. I highly recommend him. He is professional, knowledgeable, pleasant, and thorough. Thank you, Jonathan.


on January 25

Very friendly and knowledgeable guy. Made sure everything was perfect before he left even after I drove the car.

I have used him several times for repairs on my Mercedes. He is very knowledgeable and professional and has saved me a ton of money!

Jonathan was able to fix my engine harness after rodents chewed through a few wires that wouldn't allow my Honda CR-V to start. He was able to get everything done within a hour and provided appreciated feedback about my cars health.

Immediately he found the problem of my car, very professional, it is seen that he knows what he does, very respectful, I will recommend it to my friends.

Jonathan was very courteous and friendly. He called prior to arrival to let me know what time he'd be here and he was exactly on time. He got to work right away and was finished in no time.
