I've been a mechanic for more than 30 years and am ASE and GM certified. Working with customers to figure out what needs to be done and then completing the repairs gives me a great sense of well-being. I look forward to my next challenge!

""Jays very professional and knowledgeable about the vehicles he service. He's prompt and will notify you upon arrival. I highly recommend Jay the mechanic.""

The problem we reported has been difficult to diagnose for other professionals. Jay took his time with the car and was able to find a probable source of the noises we were hearing. Great service. Very professional. Would use him again!

Flexible and courteous. When he was stuck in another city waiting for parts on another job, he provided some options and we worked out a solution that was mutually beneficial. For the pre-purchase inspection, he caught a couple things I didn't making the cost worth every penny.

Jay arrived ahead of time and completed the job quickly and efficiently. Was kind enough to point out some things I should take a look at.

I was impressed with Jay. I spend some time with him as he was doing his job. He is a very likeable person, easy to talk to, and as spoke with him and observed him, I soon discovered that he is an honest man and that his reputation means a lot to him. His clients are very important to him. He did his job in about 20 minutes. Good job!!

Jay has worked on multiple cars for my wife and I and does a great job of explaining what's going on with your vehicle and what it may need and what it doesn't need. I trust him more then most places I have taken my car...

Phenomenal! Jay's GREAT! Was on time, professional, courteous and had plenty of expertise. He explained things so this 'senior citizen' could get it. Was kinda, patient and extremely thorough. I was veryyyyyyyyyy happy with the service, the tips I learned and with the help I got. I know how to proceed and will highly recommend this company and Jay ALWAYS! THANK YOU!


on June 02

Jay was well informed as to what needed to be done. He made sure all parts were ordered. He finished the work on my vehicle ahead of schedule and reviewed his inspection findings. Your mechanic is fanstacic. I did not have to wait in a service waiting room or arrange transportation to a service location. Prices were below dealer costs. I will use the service again and request Jay to perform the work. I value his work and knowledge. Outstanding mechanic!

i wasn't home during the repair however my son was and he said that Jay was very professional and completed the work required without an issue. He was very content with the work done to his car.

Jay was very friendly and professional when reviewing a car that I was thinking of buying. He gave me repair costs and all the problems I should look carefully into. Overall a very pleasant experience.

Jay contacted that he would be late and I appreciated the call. Prior to working on the car he made sure that parts were correct and that the problem wasn't something else. Work was completed on time and he also provided other services that the car may need in the future.

Jay is an awesome mechanic as well as a person. He provided a very good experience. I will not hesitate to book my cars next service on yourmechanic.


on November 20

Jay is awesome! He was like having my dad come check out my used car before I purchased it, only better (because my dad doesn't know anything about cars). The car dealership protested at first, saying the car doesn't need to be checked out. Jay nicely but persistently insisted that he was going to give the car a thorough checkout, and he did. He addressed my concerns, and allowed me to buy my new ride without the worries that usually come with buying a used car.

Jay Unger repaired my older model vehicle with no problem. I have been told by others it would not be wise to fix the car based on the year and mileage of my vehicle but for under $700 my car was repaired and running like new. It sure saved going out and buying a new car with payments or buying a vehicle with potentially worse problems. He was very professional, was timely and explained everything that was wrong, what he did as to the repairs and what may be needed for future repairs. I would call YourMechanic again and ask for Jay Unger to repair my car anytime. Having the work done at home saved me drive time and down time.

Jay was very professsional, courteous and took the time to explain the issue. He actually had to come back again as the same problem resurfaced within a few days. Between Jay and YourMechanic, they took of the issue very professional and didn't charge me for the second time. I would gladly recommend Jay to my friends and family!


on May 26

Jay arrived to the appointment early and called me that he arrived and immediately started getting his tools ready to begin the work. He listened to the symptoms my car was having and then proceeded to do the job which was requested. He let me know how long it would take and kept in contact with me. He told me exactly what he did and even answered other questions I may have regarding other issues with the vehicle. Of course, he told me to book an appointment for an inspection of the other questionable problems I may or may not have, but my clutch is now operating as it should and I got a great mechanic at a great price with great service. Thank you. I have referred my sister to YourMechanic and I believe they are booking their appointment today.
