Hi, my name is Richard McCarthy. I have a versatile mechanical background that spans approximately 15 years. I started out serving 7 years active duty as a turbojet/fan and fuel-related system mechanic/troubleshooter working on flight deck carrier operations for the US Navy. After serving my time honorably, I switched my path from aircraft to the automotive industry. As a civilian, I attained three ASE certifications: A1 engine repair, A6 electrical, and A4 brakes while receiving an Associate of Science in Automotive Technology from City College of San Francisco. From there, I have worked on everything from commuter cars to heavy construction specialty equipment. I love to do engine repair, preventive maintenance work, brakes and electrical. I bring an aeronautical standard to this industry and have the highest integrity forged from three tours aboard the USS Nimitz for Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom.
Richard was very friendly and professional, and finished the job within an hour, though he had said earlier that it might take longer. A pleasure to interact with.
Friendly, knowledgeable, and great at explaining stuff.

Very friendly, affable, professional, and showed up early! Helpful and down-to-earth guy. Really glad he came to check out my car!
Did a good job! I stood there and asked if he can show me how to do an oil changed and he taught me some things. He also recommended me future maintenance on the car. Overall good work
Richard was very knowledgeable and thorough when explaining the issues with my car. Rich was great with updating me with some car issues that I might need to be aware of in the future.

Great mechanic. Very helpful and a good communicator. Richard told me I didn't need a service that I already booked. Saved me $150!
