Richardo arrived on time, worked efficiently, was very communicative! He was very flexible with arranging an appointment time that best fit my schedule. Really appreciate his patience and help from beginning to end. Will definitely use his services again, if needed.

Ricardo was really great. Easy going and very knowledgeable. Unfortunately, he confirmed our fear that our truck wasnt really salvageable but he was able to really give us details as to why. It was incredibly helpful and appreciated. He was on time and efficient!

I will be using Ricardo exclusively when my car needs work. He was incredibly competent and very helpful. Made what is normally a painful experience a very pleasant one!

I couldn't have asked for a better mechanic. I originally was told by another mechanic that I needed a new alternator because the car wouldn't start. Ricardo checked the car out and found one of the battery terminal connections was corroded. He cleaned it up, checked all the relays and the car started up without any problem. After paying for the diagnostic and cleaning, I saved about $180.

This guy is beyond what I expected, he's very friendly , full of energy and besides all this, he was very professional at the time he inspected my car , he explained all the issues affecting the performance of my car and he was able to answer all my questions. I'm very happy with his service. !

3rd time using this service and 1st time with Ricardo. Great experience and you can trust that he has your bets interest in mind. Now my problem is who do I choose when I need more work because both he and Luis (who I used the first 2 times) are awesome.

First time user, experience was excellent. Ricardo arrived when expected and was super professional. Got right to work and solved the problem at hand. Will definitely be requesting him for future work and recommending 5 Star service


on April 04

Ricardo was very quick and knowledgeable with what he was doing. He was able to say what was wrong with my car pretty quickly and even double checked to make sure he was right. It seemed like he was giving honest, straightforward answers and was not looking to rip me off. I wish he had his own auto shop, if he did his place would be my go to shop! Thanks Ricardo!

He was professional knew what he was talking about all the questions i asked he answer them with no problem i will give him 5 stars he is coming back Monday to do a tune up I would definitely recommend him


on March 23

Ricardo showed up as scheduled, got right to work and was done as expected within 3 hours. He was courteous, capable, and I would not hesitate to book him for another fix. He answered all my questions.

Ricardo is so knowledgeable in all things automotive. He also explains and shows you everything so you know exactly what is happening. He is reliable and trustworthy (not often a trait found in auto mechanics). I will ALWAYS make sure Ricardo is my mechanic. If he is booked, he is worth waiting for, BELIEVE ME. There is a reason he has 5 stars. My Story: My Jeep needed a new radiator. Ricardo replaced it, but my car continued to leak. He informed me that aftermarket radiators for Jeeps often had issues and he suggested a radiator replacement from the dealer. We ordered the part (again) but from the dealer this time and he replaced the faulty one. So far, everything seems fine. Here is the exceptional part about Ricardo. After he put the 1st radiator in, the check engine light came on. There was a faulty sensor, not associated with the radiator. Any other mechanic would have told me it was an unrelated issue and charged me for a new sensor. Instead, Ricardo realized the sensor failed because oil was dripping on it, yes, oil from the faulty aftermarket radiator that he initially installed. He let me know the reason for the sensor failure and replaced it free of charge when he put in a new radiator. Also, there was sticky stuff on my window making the electronic window not roll down. He cleaned off the sticky stuff. One of my headlights was foggy, he had product to quickly clean off the build-up, the door panel was not attached to the door, he had a quick fix for that..... shall I go on? Ricardo is honest, informed, and dedicated to getting the job done right and making sure the customer is happy. Like I said, he will ALWAYS be my mechanic. If I could give him more than 5 stars, I would. "YourMechanic" is lucky to have him as an employee. If all of their employees are as good as Ricardo, they will be the trademark of auto repair. Yes, this review is real. Chareen Hodge- Los Angeles, Ca.

Ricardo is great! He replaced the brake pads quickly and then showed 3 or 4 features our car has that the dealership never showed us. Absolutely will have him work on our car in the future. Very pleasant!


on March 18

Great job! Took the time to fully explain what was done, and gave advice on follow up for any further issues. Definitely a good first experience with Your Mechanic.


on March 16

Ricardo was great! Showed up on time, very friendly, checked out my car and even gave me a heads up about my brakes which will need to be replaced in a couple months. Will definitely get him for my future car needs.

Ricardo was such a nice guy. He came in and was able to take care of my much needed to be changed Tie-End-Rod in 30 minutes. Would definitely recommend him to anyone in need. Thank you so much Ricardo.


on March 17

Ricardo was very knowledgeable in the work that he was performing. It took him no time to remove the old throttle body and replace it with the new one. Found out more work was required on my car. Ricardo will be returning to take care of the needed work. Pricing for parts and labor is very commendable.


on March 19

I can't begin to tell you how pleased I am with the work Ricardo did on my car. I'm so grateful I found "Your Mechanic" For the record this is the 2nd time I've had him come out and do repairs. I'll have a total of three once everything is done. My car "had" a horrible noise the first 5mins of warming up. You should have seen the look on my face when he showed me the pulley he took out. Totally separated. Old man upstairs was sure looking out for me. Now the controls arms. Same thing totally deteriorated. Keep in mind my car is a "93". Just Awesome

Great service! Ricardo explained everything thoroughly and gave excellent recommendations. First time using this service and I loved it! He made my experience wonderful and will definitely be using it more. Thank you, Ricardo!

Excellent work and great attitude. He went out of his way to help and find the best solution for fixing my car. I would highly recommend using him to anyone.


on January 26

it was fantastic! he was concerned about his work and even helped rerouter some speak er wires while replacing my window regulator! He's my new go to 5 star mechanic! thanks again!


on January 04

Did an excellent job on cleaning the throttle and setting the calibrations to where it should read, I appreciate that he check or Inspected the rest if my truck and explain them to me and get them check out in the future . I would use Richardo again . He got an A+ in my book !!! Thank you, Luis Beza


on January 05

He immediately started to work on the car repair as soon as he got there and was very quick. After the repair was done he did a thorough inspection of the rest of the car. He explained to me a couple of other concerns with the car. What I liked the most is that he explained everything in plain language and why it works that way and how it works. Best mechanic interaction ever.


on December 28

Very friendly, knowledgeable, and fun to talk to. He explained what he did (even though it was only oil change) with details. Thanks for servicing my car today!

Ricardo was fantastic!!! He was on time, polite and soooo helpful. He answered any and all questions. He even gave me helpful hints to maintain my car, so i can keep "her" longer.

Awesome job! I requested Ricardo to complete the second part of my cluth issue. Amazing work! Very quick and just an overall A++++ professional. Book Ricardo for your next appointment and you definitley will not be dissapointed how stress free and EASY the services will be. As a matter of fact you might start questioning the prices of brick and motar mechanics. Thank you Ricardo and thank you YourMechanic for another satisfied appointment.

I can't believe this! Ricardo knew what he was doing. My mechanic before him did a mess job with my brake light switch last year. It didn't feel right. Ricardo replaced it and it only took 45 mins. He was also checking my tires and engine to make sure everything was good. My brake light switch feels so much better and smooth. I will be using him from now on. I am so glad I found him through this site.


on November 19

Ricardo , was a very friendly,professional,and competent mechanic. He did a great job on my Mercedes Benz. Best part was that he was so knowledgable about everything that has to do with cars,he even informed of some very cool functions that my car has that I didn't even know existed and even how to utilize, but Ricardo when far and beyond to even briefly teach me. Definitely would recommend him to everyone. Thanks.
