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!

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 =)

Kenneth was very professional and thorough. He did an excellent job and my brakes feel like new! Friendly, excellent service and would go back to Your Mechanic just for him.


on July 26

Kenneth arrived early to complete the rear brake service on my car. He is very personable, service minded and a valuabe asset to the Your Mechanic organization. He is my go-to guy for any car servicing needs in the future. Thank you so much!

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.

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.

Kenneth arrived just on time and provided excellent service. He is very knowledgable and even explained everything he was doing as I observed. Friendly, courteous, and got the job done fast. Thanks, Kenneth!

Ken is an amazing young man. He replaced an air intake hose on my Volvo, which was NOT easy to do. He graciously allowed me to watch and learn, and I had a great time chatting with him throughout the process. I am so happy to have found him...you will NOT be disappointed with him.

I usually do all my own work on my cars but since I never have the time with a full schedule I have been using YourMechanic to take care of my mechanical work! Kenneth is so far the BEST Mechanic I have used with YourMechanic so far! He brings all the right tools, is very thorough, works fast and efficient! 6 STARS for Kenneth! :)


on July 29

Kenneth is very knowledgeable and friendly. I made mistake to ask for clutch slave cylinder replacement. But Kenneth figured out it is actually master cylinder problem instead of slave. He also made a rescheduling for me right after knowing the real problem. Then the second time, he fixed my car very quickly and also explained a lot detail about the problem. I am glad to have him work on my car. Highly recommended!!

Hyundai Sonata
on July 26

My Hyundai Sonata has a control arm attached to the rotor which makes anything related to the back side of the car impossible or intimidating to touch. With that being said, Kenneth was able to replace two wheel studs within a matter of minutes. I cannot explain how satisfied I am with his work and with his honesty--which is rare in a lot of Professionals in the car business. I will only be in the Bay Area for a while longer, but I plan on using Kenneth again without hesitation. You will not be dissapointment with Kenneth!

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


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.

Buick Regal
on August 01

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!


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.

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!

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 09

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 October 28

This is the second time Kenneth came and fix my second car. I highly recommend him because he'll tell you how it is explained every detail and broke it down for me to understand. I appreciate his work and time THANK YOU KENNETH

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.

Acura TSX

I had a great experience with Kenneth. I took my car into the dealer on Monday after I got the light for a 100,000 mile service. I needed to get my spark plugs replaced, rear brake pads replaced, air filter replaced, power steering fluid flushed/replaced, and brake fluid flushed/replaced, and drive belts replaced. The dealer quoted me over $1,100. I had a good experience with Your Mechanic a few months ago and decided to give them a try. I ended up paying $460 and was extremely happy with the service. Kenneth was on time, outlined everything he was going to do before hand, was quick, and walked me everything he did at the end. He also pointed out that I should change my cabin filter, which was extremely filthy (dealer did not point this out). I would highly recommend him!


on December 23

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


on October 24

Kenneth has been great. He has been working on both of cars (2010 Honda Accord, 2002 Ford Escape). He is thorough and competent, and he gives us clear, reliable recommendations.


on June 22

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 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.


on October 20

Kenneth offered to arrive early, and was professional and courteous. He quickly identified the problem and explained its cause & consequences. He also straightforwardly helped me decide whether or not other issues I was unaware of warranted preventive maintenance. Overall, completely satisfied with his expertise and communication.
