Jay arrived for the appointment ahead of time and to check the full diagnosis of the job I had requested (fit rear rotors and brake pads and left side caliper) he verified a few questions with me. He worked diligently and efficiently to complete the job and walked me through what had been done. Very helpful and polite throughout. Very pleased - a good job at a very fair price and without the "pressure sell" you get from the chain auto repair stores. I am a convert.

He was very nice and I had a great experience talking with him he's very knowledgeable about the vehicle and his willingness to answer my questions was amazing. I definitely will recommend Your Mechanic to everyone in know.

I found Jay extremely professional and competent. I was looking at a private owned used vehicle and Jay gave me up front, honest detailed information as to issues with said car. During our test drive, he demonstrated several things (good and bad) and stated anything for me to think about in the purchase. Jay made me feel very comfortable in voicing concerns. I'm extremely happy with my pre purchase inspection & highly recommend Jay. I will definitely utilize this service as well as his in future.

I was very happy with Jay. He was able to diagnose and replace my T 100's starter right in my driveway. He was on time (even early), polite, knowledgable and just all around pleasant. I felt very comfortable discussing the trucks condition with him. This was my first time using a mobile car repair and I am sure it won't be the last. Jay left a VERY good impression and is certainly an asset to your company.

i was surprised, the level of service jay offered was unprecedented. i was expecting a simply plug swap, Jay treated my car like it was his own, he went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. i have several more projects in mind for the future and Jay will be my ace in the hole to make sure everything gets repaired properly. 5 stars are not enough for the experience Jay offered

Even though I had misdiagnosed the problem and did not have the required part or equipment, Jay was tremendously helpful. He showed me what the problem was in exact detail, so that I have full confidence in buying the parts and going to a shop with a lift. He even fixed another unrelated problem. I will use him for another job coming up, and would fully recommend him.

I realize that Jay came to fix a self diagnosis brake problem. I just wished that he would of bled the brakes to be sure I needed the master cylinder . As it turned out I ended up paying for a part I didn't need. I would of had no issue with paying the full labor amount since it was a bad diagnosis but to pay for a part that I didn't need was just so disappointing.

was efficient- came as promised and early and completed the job better then expected

Kia Soul

I didn't intend to leave a review for the work completed in December by Jay but immediately after he replaced my alternator I started having power steering issues. My first reason for a low star rating is it seemed Jay had the attitude that he was only there to do the work YourMechanic told him to do. I had originally requested all 3 belts to be replaced on my car when the alternator was replaced simply because I didn't want to have to pay for the same labor over again in the future. Somehow he was only directed to replace the alternator belt. When I asked him about it he pretty much dismissed my query with I'm just here to do what I was told to do and said my other belts looked great and didn't need to be replaced. Granted he replaced my alternator as requested but that's where problems started. Unfortunately, the primary reason for the 1 star rating, I had to have YourMechanic come back out on a warranty claim because of the power steering issues that stemmed from his work. The different mechanic that came out found the alternator had been incorrectly installed and one of the bolts was not properly holding the alternator in place. This caused damage to the new alternator belt and allowed the alternator to move allowing the power steering to slip. The new mechanic also advised the other belts were not fine (the A/C belt had chunks missing from it in several places) so he went ahead and replaced all 3 belts for me. The negligent work earned the 1 star review but the attitude definitely contributed.
