I've been in the automotive industry for over 20 years and have experience working in both dealerships (Saturn, Chrysler, and Jeep) and independent shops. I've been a shop foreman, service advisor, and manager in addition to being a mechanic and I enjoy all aspects of the industry. I am skilled at diagnosing new situations and I make it my priority to deliver quality service.
Lucas was awesome! He called prior to arrival to ask my specific problem, arrived on time and could not have been more professional. He was friendly, courteous and had a sense of humor. I'd definitely recommend him.
Lucas went above and beyond my expectations. He was very dedicated to finding out the issue with my Jeep and provided an alternative solution that allowed me to avoid costly repairs. Additionally, he is polite, friendly, and courteous. I HIGHLY recommend his services, and will seek to book him again if services are needed in the future.
I couldn't be more pleased with both the service and the transaction. Lucas was wonderful. He changed my alternator but for some reason it was charging the battery. He came back the next day and went over the electrical system with a fine tooth comb until the alternator was working as it should. This is a great way to get your car serviced.
Showed up w/in the time frame given. Having experience w/ cars myself, he was open to my input, & shifted focus to zero in on the issue. Once he found the problem, he explained what it was (& pointed it out so I could see myself), w/out any "fluff", & had a solution.
It is such a pleasure to work with such an experienced mechanic who is thorough and knowledgeable. He is like a "car whisperer." LOL
On time and professional. Lucas did a great job. I highly recommend him and will be happy to have him handle my cars service needs in the future.
Professional and friendly demeanor, emtremely timely - he had up and going in under an hour for a battery replacement.
Very thorough with his pre-inspection review. I couldn't be there and he handled everything very professionally and kindly.
Excellent service oriented mechanic. From start to finish, Lucas was professional and had my needs foremost in the exchange. Checked the car thoroughly, made recommendations to solve my car problems, test drove to verify the condition, and did everything he could to work out solutions quickly and knowledgeably.

Lucas was great. He made sure my brake pads were replaced that day even when the parts weren't delivered. He went to get the part himself and finished the job.
Lucas arrived better than on time, diagnosed and (unfortunately) agreed with my guess that the alternator needed to be replaced. He completed the job quickly and informed me of a couple of small side issues to be aware of. He was friendly, informative and there was no upselling. I recommend him highly
Lucas was extremely knowledgeable and was able to fix my problem. He was very friendly and courteous and even helped with some preventative maintenance while he was their for my repair. Highly recommend Lucas and YourMechanic.com.
Lucas quickly diagnosed the rattling sound in my car to be the stabilizer bar links. He ordered the replacements and installed them. He is a great mechanic and look forward to using him again and again on anything that comes up.
I had an electrical problem with my car (wouldn't start). I thought it went beyond the typical dead battery situation (battery wouldn't take a jump, there were no preceeding hard starts), so I wanted everything tested. It was convenient to have him come to the car, instead of me taking the car to a shop (since it wouldn't start, we were probably looking at towing). I could have changed the battery out myself, but I wouldn't have known if there was some underlying issue or not (starter, generator, alternator). It turned out that it just was the battery (battery was bad, needed to be replaced), although Lucas tested everything, so now I have some peace of mind that it's not going to happen again.
Lucas did a great job! I will request him by name on future service calls. Showed up early and called to see if that was ok. I really appreciated that.
Lucas was professional, knowledgeable, articulate and went out of his way to solve the problem. I thought I had blown the radiator on the 2005 Toyota Sienna; he diagnosed not a radiator leak, but that one of the gaskets somewhere was leaking. He took the whole thing apart, showed me step by step what the problem was and what he was going to do to repair it. He went out of his way to find the part; he went out of his way to correct the job parts order that is automatically created for this particular job, which in itself saved me something like 150 bucks. He was helpful, thoughtful, kind and did excellent work. I highly recommend him and as a first time user am impressed with Your Mechanic and its mechanics.
Lucas was great. Inspected my Jeep before he did any of the scheduled work, reevaluated what needed to be done and was very informative. Made sure that he only did the work that needed to be done, was very thorough, and saved me some money. Would highly recommend him to anyone else.
I had battery trouble, needed a new battery. Lucas went to an auto parts store to replace my battery, but my car's preferred model wasn't there. He got the 2nd model, so I could drive for the day, then came back the next day with the preferred model when it was in and switched it out. It was important because my battery is in the trunk; it's possible the 2nd model wouldn't have vented correctly, and if not, it would have been in the trunk (in the car). So he made it possible for me to drive while waiting, and then replaced the battery as soon as he could, making an extra visit to our house. Great service.
Lucas is an extremely competent mechanic that I would recommend to anyone, except maybe my mother-in-law (sarcastic joke) Lucas has been so professional and points extra things out to me that I would not know. He has done two repairs for me and I have the next time I need to have one done, I will be personally requesting him. If Lucas goes to another company, "Your Mechanic" has lost my business. I recommend this personal service, and I will tell everyone to request Lucas. I had a quote for a service on my truck, and Lucas punched in the info. with "Your Mechanic" and the rated he quoted me beat the other party by $1,000. The service is so convenient and personable and so is Lucas. GIVE HIM A RAISE, I think he is worth it.
Lucas was very communicative and thorough. He specifically sat down with me and showed me what was wrong with my car. I also really appreciated that he gave me options and left a lot of the decision-making up to my discretion. I never felt pressured or scared into fixing more than requested, which is different from the majority of mechanics I've encountered. HIGHLY recommend and will request him or at least refer to this site for further work on my vehicle. The work itself on my car had top quality parts/service! Big thanks!
Lucas is an excellent mechanic. He explained what was and wasn't wrong with my car. He helped me to understand exactly how my cars problems would impact me in the short and long run. He gave me multiple options without ever making me feel pressured to go with any one option. He's one of the only mechanics I've ever met who does his job in a way that makes me trust him. I'll be using him for every future need on my car(s). Bottom line: Request Lucas, and wait until you can get him. I made the mistake of picking an earlier appointment due to time, which messed up my car, and Lucas fixed it gratis, expertly, a day later. Don't think, just give him your business.

Once again, reevaluated my car prior to any work being done, analyzed the issues and we are now getting them fixed. Saves me some money and some headaches.

Lucas is a. Wet kind gentleman. He is also very thorough and takes pride in his work. If I ever have to call upon your mechanic again I'm hoping I will get Lucas.
Lucas showed good workmanship and knowledge . He also cleaned up and explained what he had done . Thanks Vince !

Was very friendly and very helpful! Especially for a girl who knows almost nothing about cars, he didn't try and make me pay for anything I didn't need and was very helpful in trying to get my car fixed asap!
Lucas was excellent. He was knowledgeable friendly; Lucas shared what he was doing to my car and why. I know a lot more about my car as a result of him coming to work on it. My Infiniti was a tall order: Lucas arrived at 11AM and stayed until about 5:30PM to finish. Upon completing the prescribed work, he showed me why a certain (previously insurmountable) issue was occurring, and asked to replace one final part. I said yes, after which Lucas made arrangements to go pick up the necessary part and return (he didn't leave until approximately 8PM). Then, the next day, Lucas contacted me again to let me know that a more updated of the part existed. He asked if we could schedule a time for him to come back and replace the part (ignition coil) one more time. Lucas goes the extra mile.
(see previous review) Lucas came back to my house to re-replace a part: he discovered a more updated version of the ignition coil existed. He arrived early, replaced the part quickly, and gave me a verbal run-down of all of the work done on my car (and what to expect into the future). Officially making him my personal mechanic from here on out!
Lucas understood my priorities, he was experienced, thorough and was a great pleasure to work with. He took considerable time investigating and understanding the things I was concerned about and then explained all of the issues very clearly and professionally.

Always reluctant to hire a new mechanic - but Lucas was thorough, professional, knowledgeable,helpful, friendly, courteous. He went straight to work, isolated my problems, gave me fair and reasonable quotes. I will keep his card and probably keep him busy. My car was a pass down from my father - 16 years old, 200,000 miles and in need of some TLC. Lucas is my guy! Highly recommended.
