Richard arrived on time. He was thorough with his inspection, identified the issue and offered professional advice on repairs. I will call on him again.

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.

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.

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.

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 19

Great experience! Richard was very professional, did a great job, and was very informative. Will definitely request him next time.

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.

on October 20

Excellent. Very professional and knowledgeable. Willing to answer and look into any and all questions I had for him.

on September 02

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.

on September 08

Absolute perfection. On time, honest and very knowledgeable. The online experience was very user friendly. I will definitely be using the service again.

on October 14

Richard was prompt and completed the job quickly and with expertise! I will use Richard again for my service needs.

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 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 was amazing!!! My car was at home and my roommate was there to let him know what was going on with my car. She's very particular about mechanics as she's an OTR trucker. She was very impressed with Richard and I am very pleased with my car. I work for Vanderbilt Hospital/ University and will be recommending Richard to all of my co-workers!! Sleep when you can Richard, you're about to be very busy!!!

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.

on July 10

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 February 29

Richard was very polite, knowledgeable, and helpful. He did a great job and explained everything he did. Even more impressive was what he didn't do! Previously we had been told by another garage that the car was a goner, dangerous to drive, and not worth fixing--basically, that it was time to retire it. Richard assured us that with only 135,000 miles the car still had life in it and was safe to drive until parts could be ordered. And the repairs were much less extensive and less expensive than anticipated. The whole experience was better than I expected. I will be telling everyone I know about Richard and

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 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.

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.

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.

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!

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 November 18

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!

on December 15

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.
