Michael was great! Very professional and knowledgable. I was told by a shop that I needed one engine mount replaced. He replaced it and let me know that all of the other ones needed replacing too, which no other shop told me in the past 3 years. I set up another appointment with Michael and now my car is running more smoothly than it has since I bought it in 2014. The Your Mechanic prices were way cheaper than other quotes that I got.

Michael was very professional, called me one day before the appointment to make sure everything was on track. He showed up on time to the appointment with a professional appearance and tools. My car was inoperable upon his arrival and helped me push my 3800 lbs vehicle all the way into the apartment complex. He began inspecting the starter that needed replacement and discovered the previous mechanic had not seated the electrical wiring properly and thus the starter did not need be replaced. Most mechanics would of pulled a shady move and still went ahead and replaced it. Due to his findings he was able to save me money and time! I can't wait to work with him again.

Michael arrived early and finished early. Overall it was a great a experience with Michael. The website needs some work and the support systems at yourmechanic need improving. Also the app that the mechanic had to deal with to update my service order took a really long time. The actual car work was excellent but the overall execution through the yourmechanic systems needs some work.

Michael was great. He arrived earlier than scheduled, was very knowledgeable and professional, did more than I expected with a thorough inspection of my car besides doing the repair needed. All done on a heavily rainy day. He and YourMechanic saved me so much time and money. I highly recommended Michael and YourMechanic. Thank you so much!!

Mike was fantastic! He was very professional, knowledgeable, and easy to communicate with. He was able to fix the problem quickly and I am so glad I found yournechanic.com. I will recommend Mike to everyone. Thank you for the great service!

Great service! Since diagnostic tools are now hand held, it makes sense (and saves cents) to figure out what is wrong at the house instead of a shop. Likewise, many repairs can be done away from a service center...I didn't need any this time, but won't hesitate to use YourMechanic if/when I do.


on April 27

Michael was on time, professional, courteous and knowledgeable. He took the time to explain the recommended services to me and showed me why he was making the recommendations. The YourMechanic service was very convenient that the mechanic was able to come to me since I don't have time to bring to a dealership. I definitely plan to book Michael for future needs.

needing a new Alternator, Mike showed up earlier then schedules, which was great. Very nice guy, only took about an hour to get the job done. GREAT JOB!!!

Mike did a great job. He answered all my questions and explained everything he did. He also showed me some other things that I need to consider doing in the future.

This is my very first time with YOUR MECHANIC. It's a nice concept and successful one too. You know how much you are paying for the parts and repair exact to the penny. No more or no less. When I set up an appointment, I had no idea what I am getting into but a day before the appointment, Michael Parra sent me a text message confirming the timing. He also called me before he came yesterday and he showed up even earlier than set time. He took time to examine my car and found out the problems and only after that he suggested what things are needed. He is very professional, experienced and learned auto mechanic with all the necessary credentials. These things are very important. He knows exactly what is is talking. He even suggested that someone like him will come and take care of replacement and repair of my car but I want him only and he is kind enough to complete my car work next saturday. He did not suggest anything else other than what is needed. I really feel lucky to get him for fixing my car. I recommend Michael Parra to every one and by the way, It is Michael Parra who should be credited for the reputation of YOUR MECHANIC. I wish him all the best.

Just had Michael from YourMechanic.com replace the fuel injectors on my Kia Sorento for less than half the price of a traditional repair facility. Michael, arrived early, performed a complete inspection of my vehicle and finished on time. What a pleasure, and all while I watched TV and did my laundry on a Sunday! Will definitely use YourMechanic.com again! Thanks again!


on December 11

Michael showed up on time and was very professional. He got right to work on my car and was done in a timely manner. I would certainly use Michael again for my automotive needs.

Truck was hard to shift. Michael was very through and helpful. He diagnosed the issue very quickly and presented a few options to get it repaired. Very happy with him and would recommend him.

You absolutely have to use this service! Michael was amazing! He is so kind, no pressure at all whatsoever, and tells you exactly what services you need. I am a woman and have a long history with rip off artists that call themselves mechanics. I was so pleased with the services that I'll never use another mechanic again! Thank you so much Michael for giving me faith that there are still a few, truly honest and good people to work with in the automotive world! You're the best!

YourMechanic.com gets rid of all the hassle of finding a reliable mechanic, going down to a shop, and waiting around for repairs. Michael was very knowledgeable and was answer all my questions. He even brought to my attention that the from brakes that I thought needed to be changed were still good for about 20,000 miles and that only the rear needed to be replaced. He did a great job of reviewing everything he did at the end of the service and letting me know of any potential issues that I should keep an eye on in the future. Would definitely recommend.

i was a little disappointed with how late in the evening my appointment was for. Michael did the work i asked for but it did not fix the problem. It was not his fault.

On time for appointment, he was very detailed and the finished job was superb, professional down to the last minute. would use and recommend him , all day long

I love the app, Michael appraed honest and provided recommendations for future work on my car. He knew what he was talking about when I came to cars. Thanks for the service. I'll be using YourMechanic from now on.

My name is Brian Jones, and first, I would like to say, I'am a Veteran and I hope that still holds some weight in my country...Having said that I would never lie or mislead my fellow country men ...The guy was hands down on point from start to finish...As a BMW owner we love our cars but Dealer prices hurt...Well Micheal came to my house totally trusted him changed out my motor mounts half dealer cost .....and now my car is smooth as glass they even take pictures of your parts, and every detail of your car, there is nothing to loose, and all to gain by calling them ....I have a detailed report of a few minor things I need to replace all included with your service ....I'm going to use them from now on


on August 19

Michael called prior to 2 PM to let us know he was running ahead of schedule (our appt. was scheduled for 3). We let him know that we lived 30 miles from the location of our car and he patiently waited for us to arrive. In the heat of the parking lot, he quickly and efficiently diagnosed and repaired the belt. Both he and the scheduling/payment process were very easy!


on April 30

This was my third time using Michael. He was courteous, professional, approachable, answered my questions regarding the vehicle, and repaired everything quickly. He's a friendly guy and didn't mind if I watched what he was doing quietly, chatted, or was even there at all. I had a wonderful experience with him and would recommend Michael to anybody.

I was nervous when first considering trying this service with my BMW. But I found the service very reasonable. Michael was a no-nonsense, straight forward person with my job. He showed up early and the whole event took just a little over an hour. I would definitely try this again for any future repairs and/or service. Thank you!

Mike is a very professional as well as easygoing person, replace my spark plugs and valve cover gasket and have my car examined comprehensively in 1.5h easily and cleanly, and patiently answer my tons of questions. Thank you, Mike!


on March 08

Michael kept in communication with me and let me know that he could arrive earlier than expected, which was great. He explained in layman's terms details about my car and was less than half of what the dealer was going to charge. Michael is a great representative of yourmechanic and I recommend him to anyone looking for a professional, timely an honest service. Best part is that he came to my house on the weekend.

Michael has provided service to several of our cars. He's very helpful in answering questions and getting our vehicles running smoothly again.

Michael has worked on my car twice now & both times showed up on time & proved to be knowledgeable, thorough and reliable. Thank you Michael.
