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...

He showed up on time and was very quick diagnosing what the problem was. He gave me options as to the best course of fixing the problem.

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.

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.

Richard is a knowledgeable and courteous pro. Great mechanic. It's not typical for me to have my Benz serviced anywhere other than the dealership but this man has a comfortable level of European knowledge. The removal and replacement of motor/transmission mounts was the task. Richard pulled it off and had my E-320 up and rolling again without a hitch. As a seasoned car enthusiast with ample experience dealing with dealerships and shops this experience was a welcomed and cost effective alternative. How can you go wrong with the shop coming to you. Richard is an asset to any organization. Dr. Michael Bates Hendersonville, TN

Great experience! Easy to communicate with. When he pulled up, his truck was what I envisioned all mobile mechanics would resemble. All of his tools and equipment made him look like a repair shop on wheels. He also finished the job in a timely manner. Great job!!!

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.

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!!!

Richard was great! He showed up on time, finished earlier than what was expected, and did great work. He did a great job explaining everything that was done and even made suggestions to what I can do to improve my vehicle. I'd definitely recommend and use Richard again.


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.

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 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 December 17

Richard is very professional. He has a great customer service attitude. He was better than on time. He was quick and very knowledgeable. He is a very good asset to this service. Because of his service I will be recommending your service to as many people as I can. It was a pleasure not having to get in the grease and have someone that I would trust with any of my vehicles. Thanks again for your service.

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.

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 January 05

I used YourMechanic for the first time last month and had an amazing experience. After being taken advantage of by another mechanic company, I was very hesitant to try it. Richard Coogan was incredibly helpful and a pleasure to work with. I will definitely use this company in the future and let all of my friends know about it too! Thank you Richard!!!

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 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 more than helpful. I am from out of town. And having something go wrong with my car was the last thing I was expecting. He helped me out tremendously.

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.

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.

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.
