Professional and explained the process all the way through. Knowledgeable and careful with the vehicle. Mike even hand torqued the lugs on the wheels. Nice attention to detail.


on February 10

Second experience with Your Mechanic, and Michael, both have been positive. The jobs of replacing the power steering pump, and the water pump with the serpentine belt could not of been easy. He was prompt, professional and competent. Appreciate not having to waste time and money at the Stealership


on February 11

Michael was prompt on time, and was able to do a check on the EPC lights that had come up on the car. He was able to narrow down the root cause and was able to recommend possible outcomes and options.


on January 13

Micheal was nice and informative, he was fast with the job and gave pointers on future repair and maintenance, and even showed me a few cool components about my car that I never knew was even there. Very Knowledgable.


on December 17

Timely, professional, friendly and gave how to's pointers for my vehicle and answered my questions. My preference is to build relationships with people so that you don't have to continue experiencing "first" all the time, especially when a person gives quality service, I prefer to stick with them through my duration of doing business.


on December 17

Michael showed ahead of schedule and completed the job in an hour Was professional and knew what he was doing Would definitely recommend him


on December 24

Michael knew what he was talking about he got right to the point we would always ask for him the next time we need our vehicle serviced


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.

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!

Michael is a very knowledgeable and a master of his craft. He helped me diagnose my engine code problem and showed me what I overlooked. And he kept his cool when my drunk neighbor came out to put in his two cents. Awesome guy.

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!


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.

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.

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.


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.


on December 22

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

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!!!

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 October 13

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.

He was early, knowledgeable, and very quick with the job. He was also very friendly and we had a nice talk while he completed the job. I'd recommend him to anyone.

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.


on June 26

Michael is awesome. He is knowledgeable, thorough, patient, and informative. He performed the service to its fullest and told us everything about what he did during the visit, and everything that could/should be looked at on a later date regarding our vehicle. He was a professional, but was also approachable and a source for good conversation and information. We were very impressed. A+

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.

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!


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 June 08

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.


on July 11

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 July 21

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 December 14

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!!
