Joseph is a easy going professional mechanic. His attention to detail and diagnosis was spot on. I didn't feel like I was being taken advantage of. I was initially hesitant about the use of a mobile mechanic, not now! Any mechanical issues discovered he gives you a detailed report and remedies, along with a quote. I test drove the vehicle, no problems! Scheduling another appointment!


on October 15

Joseph is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain everything in detail to make sure you understand what you are getting. He also takes the time to explain what you may want to consider in the future to make sure your car continues to run smooth. I will do business with Joseph again and I highly recommend him to anyone who needs there car serviced.

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 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.

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.

HM i have found a new mechanic for life .......


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


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 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.

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 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.

Extraordinary job done, replaced and fixed belts and since my belts have never been tighter and is now runnin smoothly. A plus also was that Joseph finished the job about 15 minutes under the estimated tI'm my mechanic gave me. Would and will recommend Joseph to people.


on March 01

Joseph is courteous, punctual, very detailed oriented. Takes time and effort to get the job done correctly! Will discuss any issues with you in an open and honest manner. Highly recommend!!


on March 03

Joseph is a reliable and professional mechanic. He explained to me afterwards everything that was done to the car, took a test drive to ensure the work was done properly and even recommended a brake fluid change after he noted weak brakes. I booked him for the brake fluid (conducted 03/03/16) and the car feels like new. I would HIGHLY recommend Joseph.

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.
