Russell was actually early for this appointment. He was very nice, patient and very helpful explaining exactly what was going on with the car. He also made suggestions to help my daughter and me save money getting our problem, which turned out to be surprisingly minor, solved quickly. He is very good at his job and Your Mechanic is very lucky to have him as an employee.

There was a mixup in the parts, Russell was patient enough to go find a replacement without any issues.

Russell was extremely thorough and knowledgable about my Honda Civic. He communicated all of the issues with the car clearly and was easy to communicate with over text before the appointment. I would definitely hire Russell again for all of my Honda's needs!

Russell was a few minutes early. He came prepared and was efficient and polite. He did a thorough examination of the car and quickly pointed out what was wrong about it. It was really a peace of mind for me to have someone competent with me. I will recommend him to friends because I totally trust him. I am still looking for a car and I will call him again. Great job!

He answered all my questions and although he couldn't fix my problem he explain to me what the problem was and how I should go about getting it fixed. He was very professional and courteous at the same time

Russell is timely and friendly. He even called to let me know he can come earlier if it worked out better for me. I couldbt make it home in time and he kindly waited for me to arrive and got the job done very fast. He’s great.

Used “Your Mechanic”for first time, and I was impressed with Russell’s troubleshooting skills at understanding the underlying root cause to the problem. An expert mechanic who is professional and mindful of your vehicle and costs to repair.

Ford Expedition

He got here early. Knew right away what the problem was. He answered all the questions my sister and I had.

on October 03

Russell was friendly and thorough, gave me a detailed oral report, but not a written report. Said rodents had nested in the engine compartment, pointed out what he said were rodent droppings, something about something in the engine compartment that smelled/tasted like peanuts. Suspect he was pulling my leg.

on November 11

Was very good, text me and let me know when he would arrive was very quick and helpful and did a great job

on December 11

Russell is a true marksman, nailed most of the pre-inspection issues. However he failed problems worth some 30% of the car's value. Use with caution.
