Richard was really helpful, made the experience hassle free, and got the job done in an efficient manner - definitely going to use him again in the future. This was the best car repair scenario I've ever experienced.

Another great experience. Please do not hesitate to use this service. The pricing and convenience is second to none! Great job Richard, and I have more orders to follow.

I absolutely love the convenience of this service. Richard has performed service on three of my cars with total success. I hope future trends push this to great heights! Thanks again Richard for your continued dedication.

Richard was professional and pleasant. Fixed my issue and explained other needs in detail. Highly recommended. Don't hesitate to use this service.

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.

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.

First time I've ever used Your Mechanic and I am very pleased. Richard came to my house and replaced a valve cover gasket. I will definitely use the him again.

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.

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

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!


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.

Richard service my 2008 Trailblazer to replace exhaust manifold and Gasket he replaced them within three and a half hours Richard was very professional he also recommended other things that I needed to get done to my vehicle as well will I use Richard again yes Richard was very friendly and professional thanks Mobile Mechanic for Richard. He has my 2008 Trailblazer sounding smoothly once again thanks Richard


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 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 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.

I won't lie..I was very skeptical about this service. Richard, however was amazing. Instantly put my mind at ease. He was prompt and extremely detailed. He will be my go to for all non routine maintenance!


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 YourMechanic.com.

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!!!

My minivan was overheating and my check engine light was on. The problem turned out to be something simple which made the promise even MORE simple. I was credited some labor time since I didn't use it all, and best of all, my car is back up and running and I didn't have to empty my pocketbook, pay towing charges, or even buy a part b/c it was a fuse. Instead of just saying "you need a new fuse" and me having to run out in a different car or risk overheating in my minivan to get the fuse I need, he replaced it with my working automatic trunk open fuse and told me "you'll need a new one of these for the trunk to open automatically." Common sense to boot! I was so pleased at my first time using this, that I want to get something else on my car done just so I can use it 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 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.

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!

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.
