Second time having Richard as my repair man! Very impressed with both instances. Richard was prompt in arriving on both occasions. He exemplified my expectations when he pulled up in his vehicle truly looking like a mobile repair shop. His professional appearance was only upstaged by his knowledge and passion for what he does.

Richard was very quick to diagnose the problem. I felt he was very knowledgeable and really enjoyed what he was doing. It was very comvient to have him come to me as appose to waiting in a repair shop for hours. My first experience was very positive. Thanks Richard!

I will surely call Richard if we have another car issue. He was on time and worked in the heat to repair my radiator hose. Thanks

My check engine light came on earlier this week. I was so afraid to drive my car due to a previous issue that ended with a blown engine. After researching on Google I located 'YourMechanic'. I was impressed by the professional website and the option to even download an amazing App! The quoted price for an oil change including inspection I was blown away with the competitive pricing. The cheapest I've ever paid for an oil change. Richard discovered that there wasn't anything major with the engine, just need to replace my gas cap according to the rest. Lastly I was extremely impressed with My Mechanic, RICHARD COOGAN!! He was prompt, polite, professional, FAST and educational. I am so impressed with this company and service. I will be referring my friends and family. You all definitely have a loyal customer!! Thank you so much Richard, continue to do amazing things for people like me. You are a savior.

Excellent mechanic. Very understanding and did an awesome job at breaking down what was wrong with my car and how he was going to resolve the issue. I will definitely be using him again in the future.

Oh my gosh what a great service! Saved us hundreds by not having to go to the dealership. We thought our problem was one thing and Richard promptly diagnosed it as something else. So thankful for his honesty and knowledge.

Always very professional and polite. Shows up on time and finds the problem and tries to get your vehicle fixed as soon as possible. If you don't need something done he will let you know so you are not paying for stuff you don't need.

Shows up on time and fixes the problem. I have used Richard several times already and he always does a great job. He is very friendly and professional and takes the time to talk and explain what needs to be fixed. If you don't need something he will let you know so you are not spending money for things you don't need.

Richard did an outstanding job fixing my wheel bearing for a 4 runner. His diligence, positive attitude, and attention to detail really showed and I would recommend his services to anyone.


on October 03

Richard was great. While very efficient and knowledgable, he was also very friendly and personable. I've finally found my go-to mechanic in Nashville.


on August 20

For my pre-purchase inspection, Richard was thorough, knowledgeable and honest. What more could I ask. Richard saved me from buying a pretty but problematic car.


on October 23

I was extremely pleased with Mr. Coogan. He was early to his appointment and he communicated all information regarding my vehicle. I look forward to future business with him.


on August 07

One of those tough intermittent problems that didn't present itself when Richard showed up. But he wouldn't let it go unsolved either. Richard is methodical and persistent and in the end he was tougher than the problem. He nailed it! A broken molded plug on the distributor that was losing connection causing the engine to stop. Thanks man!

Richard arrived exactly on time (actually about 5 minutes early), and was as friendly and professional as could be. For the sake of total transparency and trustworthiness, he even told me I was welcome to sit and observe if I wanted to, although I declined. He finished the work efficiently, and even came in slightly under the estimate I was given. Super nice guy, and came fully prepared. Didn't even bat an eye, just showed up, got straight to work, and fixed my car for about half of what the shop had estimated. Would recommend any time.


on July 18

Richard was on time and very professional. He got straight to work fixing my car and I couldn't be happier with his service. Richard will definitely be my mechanic and first call in the future.

Very professional! Called me 30 minutes after I booked the appointment online (he called two days before the appointment, and over the weekend to boot) to discuss details. He really put us at ease!

Richard arrived on time and started working on the car (brake pad/rotor replacement). Completed his work as promised and my car is back on the road and feels great!

Richard is AWESOME!!! He is my regular mechanic and I am so glad I decided to use Your Mechanic! I have three vehicles and Richard has and/or will work on all of them.


on May 16

Just like the first time I had him service the vehicle, he was outstanding. Inspected the vehicle first, and within about 5 minutes identify, correctly, what the issue was, order parts, and had it fixed the very next afternoon. Once more, saved a fortune over quotes that garages had given me, for what may have been a misdiagnosed issue anyways. Richard to the rescue once more.


on December 16

great job. Showed up on time. Did a great job. One of the most convenient and cost effective services I have used recently. It's like uber in the car repair space. Love it.


on January 04

Gotta say I was a little skeptical, but I had a great experience. Richard did a great job, he was friendly, professional, and really knew his stuff. The convenience of having my car repaired when and where I needed was wonderful. I will definitely be using them in the future.


on May 01

He was great and friendly just like the last time. He called me well before his appointment to tell me tat he would not be able to make the scheduled time, He said he could rescheduled and come later today or the net day. He came an hour earlier than the rescheduled time and he called to let me know the he would be arriving earlier. He finished the work in less than an hour and he changed the labor costs on the job since he didn't need to do two hours worth of work.

Fantastic first experience with Your Mechanic. Richard showed up 15 minutes early, was polite and courteous the whole time, replaced a starter in less than an hour, and was extremely sweet yet professional. My car has been starting perfect ever since. Thank you Richard!


on December 17

He was on time and prepared. I have done my own repairs for years, but couldn't get this job done due to a wrist problem. I would happily hire him again.


on December 22

I really could not have asked for more from Richard. He showed up on time. He called the day before to double check the specifics of what I was needing done. He finished the work in a timely matter. He fixed my vehicle correctly. He was very nice and professional. He went above and beyond. I will be using him again and I have told others in my office of his work. I have no complaints and feel confident in recommending him to friends and anyone who reads this review.


on April 23

He was great. I will definitely be using Richard again. He was really friendly and easy to talk to about my car. He called me before he got there and told me he was not able to do the A/C diagnostics and that was fine. He called me when he was on his way and when he arrived. He took real good care of it. He even showed me how bad my control arm was. He was very polite and he did a great job on my car. I have already recommended him to two people and they lived him too.


on April 13

My appointment with Richard was at 2 and he was here right at 2. Richard came to my office, so all I had to do was walk out and hand him my keys to test my breaks. About 30 minutes later, Richard called to tell me that he had come with the wrong break pads and would be back with the correct pads shortly. Roughly an hour later, he called me back to let me know that he was done with the job. I walked out of my office and he gave me some recommendations for what I need to look in to replacing. Richard was incredibly fancy and I will absolutely be using in the future.
