Kia Optima
on October 21

Robert was wonderful to work with! I needed my timing and serpentine belts replaced on my 2007 Kia Optima v6. My appointment window was 12:30-1, Robert called me around 12:30 to let me know he would be closer to 1. He arrived and was very warm and kind, he asked me if there's anything else I wanted him to take a look at. I kept checking in on him every hour or so and he would update me on what he was doing (even though I'm basically car clueless). The whole process took around 4 hours, partly because he had to run to the store because he was sent the wrong part. Robert even helped me with some hanging plastic damage (cosmetic) that happened a few weeks prior due to running over a tire on the highway. The next day my car was driving super smoothly and I could tell she got the TLC she needed from Robert. Thanks again Robert!

Robert Mostipak identified an issue during the pre-sale inspection on a used vehicle that we wouldn't have found out about otherwise, and this is an issue that could potentially cost close to if not over $500 to fix, so I am grateful for the peace of mind gained by Robert's thorough (and independent) inspection. I can't imagine buying a used car (that is not certified) without having an independent inspection done first.


on August 27

Robert is one of the best mechanics I ever dealt with. He heard and addressed my concerns with care and compassion. I felt totally at ease with his recommendations. I would recommend him to all of my friends and family. Thank you Robert for getting me back on the road!!

He exceeds expectations each and every time. It's not the fist time I've had him working on my cars, awesome job, always on time.

He arrived on time and got the work done very quickly. He is very personable and a great asset to your company.

Robert is professional, trustworthy and friendly. In addition to routine maintenance of my corolla, he also helped to check the overall condition of my car. I'd like to recommend Robert to others for any auto repair or maintenance work.

The PArts they say they Charged are different from what they Brought and Put on the CAR. The mechanic Offered to see if i am ok with the one that they put on for a week if i don't like them then he said he will replace them with that they Promised me. Really like the Person that came and did the job. He did a great job but the parts he was given by the company is different from what was quoted for the price

This guy is awesome. He knows his stuff and he gets the job done right the first time. My 91 Corvette is running better than it has in a long time and I have Robert to thank. Hire him. You will not be disappointed.

Once again robert communicated schedule effectively and was well prepared. Not only did he repair the issue quickly, but was explaining details as well. I highly recommend him more than any other mechanic at any shops. Even after fixing the issue, another alternate issue came up and robert looked at it and fixed it within a couple of minutes. He's great!!!!

This is my first time to try yourmechanic.com and I am very happy! I am very pleased and satisfied with Rob's service as he executed professionalism and good work. He came on time (earlier, actually) and finished the job in less than one hour! He is very helpful, friendly and courteous. After finishing my car, he showed me my old brake pads and even explained that it was a good call to have them changed (he showed me my almost cracked brake pad) I will definitely recommend him to my family and friend and hire him again! (tho I hope my car wont break down) Good job Rob! :)


on September 08

I had an excellent experience with Robert the mechanic. Every thing went as described. He was efficient, knowledgeable, and industrious. No time was wasted and all was completed as scheduled. He communicated well and explained everything he was doing. He thoroughly checked the entire car and found a leaking gasket to be repaired in a follow-up session. I would be pleased to recommend Robert and YourMechanic to one and all. Joe Papa, San jose

1) Robert is very professional: call before arriving, arrive on time, complete the work quickly, check the other problems with showing you the details and give you helpful advice. 2) You can watch the whole process, that's a really good experience. 3) Fee is much fairer than that in dealer station.

Robert provided good communication on when he would be arriving at my home. He was very efficient and finished under an hour, but more importantly, he fixed my car. Great work and would use him again.

By far the best repair person I've ever worked with. Honest, extremely knowledgeable, professional, and a really nice guy to boot. Saved us a lot of money and hassle by finding a significant transmission issue with our potential used car purchase and advising us to return it before our 3-day money back guarantee expired. Absolutely planning to contact him to inspect our next purchase.

Frist time client. I was blown away how Robert was able to do the work right on site. I'll use him again on future repairs. Thxs Robert. GREAT job!

Robert is great! Knows what he is doing and very professional. Assessed the problem immediately and verified other areas of my car with no BS behind his assessment. I will definitely be recommending Robert and "Your Mechanic" to friends and co-workers. Honest and down-to-earth. Wil

Robert was just excellent. He was very professional and friendly, gave me plenty of notice on when he would arrive, and explained everything very clearly. He also was thorough, diagnosed the problem, located the defective unit and presented all the options clearly. It was a real pleasure, and he had the car fixed quickly, but also took a few minutes to do a quick inspection. The price was really fair. I couldn't be more satisfied of how it all went.


on June 27

Robert was very accommodating. I booked the wrong week and called him to sneak in an appointment that wasn't originally open. I had a meeting and left my keys with him and when he was done he gave it to the front desk.


on November 08

Robert is an excellent mechanic, is on time, and even followed up with appointment reminders. He explained what he is doing and why and was very fair with the cost of the work.

Robert continues being stellar! I have raved about him and YourMechanic to all my friends and associates. Knowledgeable diagnosis of my 2005 Silverado...did not need complicated fix like I was anticipating. As far as I'm concerned, Robert is MyMechanic!


on October 08

He went above and beyond my expectations. He performed the job very well, fixing what I was unable to fix myself. I would defiantly recommend him to my friends and family and will defiantly have him work on my car again in the future.

Robert was great at communicating time of arrival and making sure I fully understood what was wrong with my car. Robert also checked other car components other than what he was there to check. He is great and I would highly recommend him as the guy to go to.

Robert is high professional, clear and organized in the work mechanic. He good knows and loves his job. He has a well-equipped truck with tools and necessary equipment for any work. Robert did great job replacing timing belts on my Nissan Frontier and Toyota Highlander. I have already recommended three friends for Robert and I'll recommend him for all those, who need any repair or any service on their cars. Thank you Robert. Good job. I also want to thank the management, as I understand it is still not big, but growing company, for information and the organization of the repair of cars.

Great experience! I booked an appointment for a timing belt and brakes replacement and everything went smoothly. Robert ran a little bit behind (no problem) and called to let me know beforehand. Upon inspection, my brakes did not need to be replaced (can I get a "woohoo!" for that?) and everything was completed in a timely manner. Robert also called out a minor additional issue and noted that it wasn't urgent and I could likely just fix the problem with my next full round of repairs.

Robert was amazing. Diagnosed the problem quickly and got to work without wasting time. He was very courteous and professional and after fixing the issue took the car for a test drive to make sure everything's running smoothly.

As soon as Robert got under my car and started talking about my oil pan gasket he noticed a few other small issues that he pointed out. Most mechanics just do the job you asked for and leave it at that. Only quoted me slightly higher for parts. Very professional and nice guy, going to call him again when any work I can't do needs to be done!
