Joseph was fantastic! He was very pleasant and knowledgeable. I will definitely recommend him to friends and family.


on May 12

Joseph was amazing. He took the time to show me what he was doing and answered every quwation with a smile. Not only did he diagnose the problem he took the time to look over the whole engine. A+ rating. Will ask for him again if needed in the future for all 3 vehicles. Thank you Joseph!

Joseph was GREAT! He did a very thorough inspection finding several issues with the car I was thinking of purchasing. He took detailed pictures and added voice notes detailing his findings. I'll definitely request and recommend him again.


on July 01

This is my first time using this service, and I wasn't sure what to expect. When Joseph arrived he had an extremely pleasant demeanor! He asked about the problems I was experiencing with my car, and asked if I had any questions. After that, he went right to work. A little while later he called me out and showed me the work he'd done, and even told me an extra service I booked wasn't needed, which saved me money. He noticed some corrosion on my battery and some loose wires and fixed that up as well. Joseph was very easy to talk to and I felt comfortable knowing he was there to help, not just to make money off of me. What a great service to have for busy moms like me who don't have time to wait around at a shop. I highly recommend Joseph to anyone he's a great mechanic!

Joseph is one of the most professional mechanic I have worked with. He did a complete brake service - Pads and Rotors (Front and Rear), brake fluid flush. He was very meticulous in the way he inspected the vehicle and recommended only the service I would need to do at the time. My Honda dealership service advisor said I need a power steering fluid flush service done and said the fluid looked dark brown. I was so glad I did not opt in to do that service at dealership because Joseph inspected and told me I had an electric power steering and there is no hydraulic fluid in the steering. I was so mad at my Honda dealership service advisor for conning me in to paying for something that does not exist. In addition to doing the brake service, Joseph also gave me a detailed explanation of how the parts worked and why they needed to be replaced. I basically left the car with Joseph for around 4 hours and came back to see my car was ready to ride. The brakes are smooth and feel exactly like when I bought the car brand new. It was 100% hassle free experience with him and he earned a lifetime customer. I highly recommend Joseph Russo for all your mechanic requirements.

Joseph was very honest and thorough. He told me what needed to be done and what could wait. He was knowledgeable, personable, and honest. I would definitely use his services again. I would highly recommend him.


on March 27

Joseph was very polite and courteous. He was also very apologetic for being late for my appointment, which was no big deal because as with anything mechanical you can always run into unforeseen problems. Joseph did the repairs to my cay ( driverside wheel bearing assembly) in no time at all. When he was finished I drove to the store to test drive it and the noise of sounding like I was driving over speed strips was gone The only problem I have now is that my ABS and Traction Control lights are both on....something that wasn't on before the repairs. Other than that I would definitely use Joseph again.


on February 27

Joe was professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. He fixed my truck in less than an hour and it is now running smoothly and quietly. My truck has over 100K miles, so I am ecstatic that I've found an affordable option in Your Mechanic and a great mechanic, Joe! Thanks for an awesome experience!


on June 27

Joseph was very polite. He arrived on time. Didn't mind answering questions that I may have. Didn't try to sale me anything that I really didn't need at the moment like some shops would try to do. Was very professional. I was very satisfied with the work that was done. I have been looking for a good mechanic for a long time and I think i have found one.


on June 30

Joseph was on time and very friendly. He took the time to explain everything to me and answer my questions. The repair was completed in a timely manner and the price was exactly what was quoted. Overall this was an awesome experience and my only regret is that I didn't know about this service sooner. It could have saved me so much in towing costs alone from previous times that I have had my car repaired. I know I will be contacting him for all of my future repairs. I will be recommending him to everyone I know.


on July 17

Joseph is very honest and experienced . He had showed me exactly what was the problem and how he resolved the issue and even return the old parts that has been replaced

Joseph Russo provided Quality, Honest service. He was kind and I enjoyed getting to meet him. I have never received treatment at this level in any shop in the 20+ years I have been driving and servicing cars. He knows his business and delivered. I 100% will work with Joseph before any shop for now on. Thank you Joe!

Joseph arrived right on time, introduced himself and got right to work. Replaced the plugs and checked the vehicle over. He took time to go over things with me. Vehicle runs great, I'm very satisfied. Thank Joseph for a great job and a great experience.


on February 04

Joseph is an extremely knowledgeable and professional mechanic. He is very detailed and thorough in his process and execution. He demonstrated this in his diagnosis and confirmation of the root cause to which the repair was intended to correct. Joe follows a process and set of best practices that should be a model for all mechanics. I very highly recommend Joe for his integrity and thoroughness with which he performs his job.

I had my brakes done about 2 weeks ago and I was a lilttle nervous because this was my first time using yourmechanic.com. I have to say that Joseph is nice, professional, and polite. From the first encounter going so well I scheduled my tune up that was fixed toda!!!....Happy Customer!!!

Amazing Mechanic! I am a Mechanical Engineer and I am always curious how things in my car work/how things get fixed and he didn't even mind me watching him the whole time, I was also asking him a lot of questions about my car and he was knowledgable of everything going on in the car. He came on time, prepared and friendly.


on December 18

Joe was very prompt, courteous and professional. He went my car very thoroughly and found two relays not picked up by other mechanic and also found that my serpertine belt had to be replaced which again the other mechanic did not replace when he on the new alternator. He spent time on the ground, in the rain and showed up for his appointment when we had an ice storm. He was honest with diagnosis and pricing. Would recommend him highly.


on December 18

Joesph is the absolute best. He was on time and very knowledgeable about the issue. I love the fact that he's also very honest with me. Joseph was pleasant and professional the entire time. I wouldn't want anyone else other than him, working on my vehicle for future jobs. Glad I found this service! Last but not least, I loved the fact that, your mechanic comes to you! I never had to leave my house. A+++
