Kenneth is fast, knowledgable, and a pleasure to be around. He has a practical understanding of owning a vehicle, and only suggested work that made sense for the use and age of my Jeep. Best mechanic I've had in a long while! /Michael

Punctual! I'm huge on punctuality and knowledge of craft. He was very professional, positive, and informative. He answered all my questions and even have me a few tips that were a huge help. Fantastic experience!!! I'd recommend to anyone.

Kenneth did an awesome job, even in the rain! Although I was quite irritated at my initial experience with yourmechanic, & feeling as though I had made a mistake trusting/trying them😒😨😱After Kenneth showed up & serviced our vehicle, my mind was much more at ease, and I was a satisfied customer😤😃😁He was on time(early actually) and worked at a great pace. Also, he had no problem with me AND my husband hovering over him with a trillion questions. For some reason "yourmechanic" did not send enough oil with him for our Mercedes-Benz oil change, 9 quarts are needed for our car, but he jumped in his van & went to get exactly what he needed to finish the job correctly. He returned VERY quickly with the correct materials. If I had to choose one thing, I'd say his BEST quality is HONESTY(can be rare among mechanics). Our convertible top has been acting up/not locking, & when I asked him about it...he didn't mind telling me that he did not know the exact answer, & telling me who would know how to fix our issue better than him! You won't come across a mechanic like Kenneth very often. He doesn't mind sharing his knowledge, and will complete the tasks requested in a very timely manner...the right way!! Thanks Kenneth. Me & my husband both enjoyed your company & your professionalism! We will be using Kenneth for our next car service, & highly recommend him to ALL! 5 STARS & 10 THUMBS UP!!👍👌👏😁

Kenneth is very efficient and careful with the work. He is also very friendly and explains what he is doing as he goes. He also gave me great tips for preventive maintenance.

The mechanic was on time, very professional and knowledge. He replaced the Brake Light Switch in a timely manner and performed and overall review of the condition of my car and gave me recommendation for maintenance and repairs. I'm so pleased to have found this service it really is a time saver for me, like most people I dislike sitting in a car repair shop. I was so pleased with the services Kenneth/mechanic provided I have schedule a second appointment. JoEtta Harrington

It was a pleasure to have Kenneth come by and take care of our care. He was able to come earlier and called to confirm that this would work with my schedule. We was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I appreciated that he explained what he was doing and how I could maintain my car with simple suggestions. It was a nice feeling to be dealing with someone who was straightforward and honest. I highly recommend him!

Prompt and quick but thorough work replacing both front LCAs. Very courteous as well, and I had a very pleasant experience. Had all necessary tools and methodically completely the work.

Ken showed up bright and early for my inspection appointment at my house. He was very nice and professional and went through a 150 point inspection check list very thoroughly. Overall, he thought my new used car was in pretty good shape and gave it a clean bill of health. If I have any other work I need done I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to Ken again.

Kenneth did a great job. He arrived on time (early, even!) and was very knowledgable about servicing my minivan. This was my first time using Your Mechanic, and Kenneth left a really good impression.


on September 20

He lived up to his major 5 Star Rating! He called to see if he could come a bit early, which was fine. Got right to work and gave me great information about several aspects of my car. He discovered I have an alarm installed, though not set operate. Pointed out a small but important part that I could replace myself. I am very pleased with Kenneth and his work.


on September 20

Kenneth arrived on time and got right to work, inspecting my new used Jeep. He was knowledgeable and efficient. When a repair was needed -new brake pads,


on September 15

Kenneth came out to my workplace and did an oil change on my big Chevy van. He was on time, very friendly and easy to talk to. What was even better, when doing the check on other fluids, he informed me that the rear break fluid was completely bone dry & front was very low. He also recommended having a break inspection done as well. Kenneth is a very knowledgeable and experienced mechanic. A great person all around. I will defiantly be requesting him for my next van work up!


on September 16

Kenneth is always a god send and I'm so glad he was able to come help me out! He gave me some great tips and allayed my fears about getting a lemon. I'm all set now and I look forward to calling on Kenneth the first time I need to service my new baby =)


on September 08

Awesome. On time, sincere, and really helpful. He did more work than I had expected, and taught me a few things to do myself. I have follow up work to do and I will do it with Kenneth.


on September 09

Took Kenneth 45 min to finish a 2 hour job. Glad he came through and fixed my car that's been sitting for a month. Thanks to him I'm back on the road again. I suggest him if you need a top notch mechanic.

He arrived on time and was honest about the one of the scheduled repairs. He was very professional throughout the visit and repaired my main issue and provided estimates for other recommended repairs.


on June 23

Very positive experience. Kenneth was proactive in working with us and the dealer. I had some special areas of concern with the car that he addressed. In addition to the detailed report he called me to provide additional commentary and even worked with the dealer to suggest some actions they take.

Really nice guy, Kenneth actually called me to see if he could come earlier to fix my car which I couldn't say no. Came in 30 minutes than the expected appointment time and fixed up my brake pads really fast. He also did a check on my filters/fluids and taught me how I should replace them in the future. Definitely would recommend to anybody who wants an efficient fix on their car, on top of wanting to know more about whats under the hood of their car!


on August 23

Kenneth was on time even though he called to inform me he may be a little late. He was very polite, informative, and a great personality! I will be booking Kenneth for future service! Thank you

Arrived on time. Did an excellent job. Explained everything in great detail which helps as by no means am I an auto expert. Highly recommended! Kenneths great I will be using him again for future repairs

Ken diagnosed a squealing noise in my van, and said I needed to replace the water pump and drive belt. He did the work efficiently and throughly. By the end of the repair, the squealing noise had disappeared and my van was running smoothly again. Ken values my time and explains what he's doing under the hood, so I'm very satisfied.

Kenneth was not only exceptionally professional, but he was knowledgeable about his work and prompt with arrival. Quick work, friendly and personable, got the job done right! I will forever be a client of Kenneth's and Kenneth's ONLY. Absolutely amazing!

Explained everything to me and answered all my "layman" questions. I plan on using this service again and asking for Kenneth to do the recommended work.


on August 06

Kenneth was exceptional. I hadn’t used YourMechanic before, but it couldn’t have gone more smoothly. I will definitely use the service again based on this experience and will, of course, request the same mechanic. Kenneth sized up the problem with my car right away and went above and beyond to fix it. On a Saturday. I really appreciate that. He was professional, personable, and explained everything as he went along. And my car runs perfectly! I also really liked the email alerts about the arrival time, and the prices are better than other estimates I got online. Thank you!

Very happy with Kenneth's help! He contacted me before come, arrive on time and worked on y car professionally. I plan to have my other car serviced by him.

Kenneth gave me a call to let me know when he would be arriving. He was professional and speedy. He answered all of my questions and was very knowledgeable about my car.


on August 01

Kenneth contacted me to see if he could come earlier, which was actually perfect. I didn't realize that my lease does not allow working on a car in the parking lot, so Kenneth helped me find a place to park the car so he could work on it without getting in trouble. He was extremely fast and even recommended some things that might need work for preventative measures.


on October 22

Kenneth is definitely an invaluable asset for Your Mechanic. He arrived early and was very informative about the repairs I had requested. He completed them and made sure to explain the additional recommendations needed. Top notch mechanic!


on July 26

Couldn't be happier with Kenneth. He contacted me early to see about bumping up my appointment and worked around my schedule to look over my recent used car purchase. He quickly diagnosed the issue triggering the check engine light, explained what should be done, and even talked me through how to replace the necessary parts just in case i wanted to do it myself. Awesome.

Wow, Kenneth did a great job on changing the spark plugs and corresponding ignition wires. Due to it being a transverse (sideways engine) the front 3 spark plugs were fairly routine and came out most normally. However, replacing the back 3 were a hell job if there ever was one! Lower engine on that side, very limited room, stuck wires and plugs, tough angles, and obstacles blockage everywhere! Despite these, Kenneth somehow managed to get the back 3 replaced. He used every bit of his knowlege and experience as a mechanic. Really a tremendous job! Thanks very much Kenneth, you are a great mechanic!
