Very friendly, explained all issues to me and talked me through the solutions. Quick and efficient. Not to mention he came out to work on my car during a nasty rainstorm when he could've easily rescheduled.

Great experience! My car was smoking a ittoe. Lucas came, went through the whole vehicle searching for the cause and included me in the process. It is thought that it might be the radiator cap. Lucas instructed me on what to do and what to look for. If in a 24 hour period it resumes smoking he will return. Did I mention that it was pouring down raining ? Hopefully his recommendation works but if not, I know who to call. Thanks Lucas.

Lucas was great. He was very friendly and professional. My car ended up needing an additional service and Lucas was able to identify the issue right away. Setting up the appointment for the second service was super easy. When he came back for the second service, he even gave me a tip for improving the coldness of my air conditioning. He took the time to walk me through how I could do it on my own, which I really appreciated. This was my first time using YourMechanic and the whole experience was great.

Awesome guy! I was super stressed about my Check engine light not turning off and not being able to pass my smog, but he was very quick in diagnosing and carrying out the repair. He was very friendly and felt like a long time friend, very trustworthy.

Lucas was great. Communicated great as he was on his way and as he arrived. Was done in the specified window. He cleaned up and was very friendly and professional.


on January 27

He replaced two drive belts on my Lexus ES330 very timely and professionally. He was polite and answered all my questions patiently. I was also very impressed with the way MyMechanics communicates with the clients. It tells you when the mechanic is on the way and let you track his location.

Lucas stayed longer than estimated for the cooling system flush to make sure the job was done right. I would definitely recommend him!

Lucas was courteous, intelligible and efficient at his work. I will dodo girly be requesting him the next time I need ANY work done. By far, the best mechanic experience ever!!!!!


on October 08

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


on May 09

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.

Saturn Ion
on October 20

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.


on October 20

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.


on October 23

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.


on October 23

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.


on October 26

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!


on November 01

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.

Infiniti I30
on November 12

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.


on November 12

(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!


on November 16

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.


on May 19

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.
