Showed up early to put my spare on. Truck was in a difficult place and still helped me out and figured it out quickly. Was also very friendly and relatable.

Really good service. On time, knowledgeable and friendly. Will definitely recommend Richard and your mechanic. A great experience and will be calling for future work needed.

Richard was very knowledgeable and helpful. I would definitely recommend him and will request him the next time I have problems. He was also early for my appointment, but made sure that was ok before showing up. I counted that as a positive.


on February 11

I gave 4 stars only because he notified us that he could not make it to our first appointment, and I am not sure why. We did reschedule him for the same time the next day. He showed up on time and got our emergency break unstuck, so we could drive the car. We will definitely use his service again.

Great experience! Richard let me know when he was in the way. He was on time and did a great job replacing my wheel hub assembly. I would book him again. It was great to have my car worked on without leaving my workplace.

Incredible integrity and communication ability. Really takes time to explain and involve the customer in the repair. Great sense of humor and outstanding work. Highly recommended...

This was my first time using this service and honestly I was quite skeptical. Fortunately, there was no need for worry because Richard was prompt, curteous, and very knowledgeable. I believe he even arrived 5 minutes early. He correctly diagnosed and repaired my vehicle to its true glory! I know I will book again if anything else goes wrong!


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.

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.


on June 07

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!

Richard was fantastic, extremlely personable guy. He explained everything in detail and what he did step by step. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Richard. Thank you Sir!

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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 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.

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!

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

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 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.


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 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.
