I don't know much about cars, but I think Robert did a great job with ours and the few questions I could think off, he gladly answered.

On time, finished early, competent and professional.. What more can you ask for?

Robert is awesome. Great guy and he knows what he's doing. Had a good time just watching him work and learning about my car. He figured out exactly what was going on with my car and was able to let me know the repairs I need in order of priority.


on December 22

Robert is simply awesome. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and loves teaching while working. There's no job too big or too small for Robert. I highly recommend him and will hire him again soon!


on December 19

Robert was great! He was very friendly and professional. My car starter went out on me my days before Christmas and being a single mom, I was very worried about the cost. He went out of his way to get my car fixed before his next appointment. The cost was so reasonable. I will use him again soon for sure. Thank you so much Robert.

Thank you, Robert! My truck was misfiring and at idle it sounded like the pistons were swapping holes. Robert diagnosed it quickly and performed a sort of mini-tune-up for me. Now the truck runs like a top and idles quietly. The best part was Robert's expert service cost me far less than a local shop quoted me with a much faster turn around time. Great service and great attention to detail. Robert even advised me of a couple of future issues but there was no push to "up sell" me on more services.


on December 07

Robert was very prompt in calling me and informing before the scheduled appointment that he was running late by 30 mins. That was totally fine by me. He very quickly could figure out that its the alternator problem, and had it replaced. He also told me that I need not pay for the alternator as it has a warranty on it, which I thought was really good. It saved me some money. And as a bonus, he lives close to me and would be the go-to reliable person for my car issues in the future.


on November 27

Very quick and extremely knowledgeable, took the time to walk me through the planned repairs and why my ignition was failing. Up and running fot a 3rd of the cost a shop would start to charge me.


on March 21

Robert was awesome. I gave wrong address on accident so Robert called me twice to find me. My fault... He did good work, was nice and explained everything that he was doing. He did inspection and helped with some preliminary items before we do the actual repair. I am rescheduling with him for the rest of the work. I am excited to have found My Mechanic.com.


on May 21

Robert is right on the money in terms of finding out the problem on my car! Very honest and quick! The service to have my car looked at was for $95+. I gave him a bill and keep the change but instead, he gave me $20 back! He has provided me quote for the parts and labor, still cheap compare if I took my car to a dealership! Great service!!!


on May 28

Robert did brakes on my truck, and a water pump on my Mercedes. He worked clean and efficiantly. Everything seems to work fine. I would definitely recommend him to friends! Thanks, Bob

Robert fixed a leaking heater hose on my van, even with some other personal issues he had, at the time of the appointment for fixing my vehicle. He was very well prepared in terms of having the appropriate tools and also was very knowledge-able of the vehicle operation to the extent of pointing out other issues that could be fixed at the same time for a lot less cost. I also commend the website Yourmechanic.com. This website made it so easy to get my auto fixed. Great job, well done!

As a person who loves doing small car maintenance myself I highly enjoyed talking to Robert and watching him doing a major job, the timing belt and water pump replacement. He showed up on time, knew all procedures by heart, answered all questions (he could be a good educator), went above and beyond in quickly finding right parts as some of them didn't fit because of minor model differences, and made sure that everything works as it should. All in all it was a great first time experience and I liked the concept of mobile mechanics. Way to go!

Robert came out to do some manufacturer recommended maintenance on my car. I didn't have to leave work to get this service done, and my car continues to run smoothly.

Robert was a great communicator, calling me before the appointment to make sure that I was there. He was courteous and worked very quickly. Would let him work on the Audi A8 any time.

Robert has done 1 jobs on my car, and every time I have been extremely happy!! I have already recommend him to a friend and he did a big job on her car and she was happy with the results. This is such a good thing. Having your mechanic service you at home works for me. I hate leaving car at a shop, and it's an inconvenient thing for me. I will continue to use Robert for me, my kids cars, and for friends as well.

  • Help putting clutch in

Jeep Wrangler
on April 23

The amount of work Robert was able to get done in two hours was impressive. He pulled my flywheel, pulled the pilot bearing, aligned and installed my new clutch assembly, installed transmission and transfer case, bled the hydraulic clutch, hooked everything back up, installed the starter, cross member, drive shaft, etc. Robert it a PRO. Thanks!

Jeep Wrangler

I like to work on my own cars. I have a Jeep Wrangler and doing a clutch job myself. When it got time to drop the transmission, and transfer case, I was having a bit of a hard time doing myself, not to mention that I didn't have all the bolts taken out of the bell housing. When Robert showed up, he knew exactly which bolts were still in, and what size the bolts were. He finished unbolting the bell housing, showed me how to strap the transmission down to the floor jack, and dropped the entire unit in no time. Robert is a transmission/clutch expert!! With over 20 years experience! I was charged 1 hour of time = 75.00 which is extremely reasonable!! I will definitely specifically ask for Robert to help me get the transmission aligned and back in. What a great service for the guy who likes to work on his own vehicles, but need a little help from a true mechanic. Thanks Robert!!


on February 19

Very happy with the service. My car needed a couple of small additional pieces of work and once I paid for the parts, Robert installed them for me quickly at no additional charge. Refreshing to work with a mechanic not trying to pile on a bunch of additional work.

I have been a yourmechanic user since the company's early seed funding days. I have recommended yourmechanic to my family and friends and all of them have received great service. But I have to say that Robert by far is the mechanic i've come across with the best attitude, friendliness, trustworthiness and upfront knowledge on hondas and acuras. Last month he serviced my wife's acura and replaced the starter, however in the process the latch to the hood was somehow broken. We called him directly from a number on an invoice to ask about the issue and he immediately made an appt to come see us and rectify the problem, and never hassled us about fault/blame etc. He also explained how it couldve possibly broke when he was fixing it. While he was here I also asked for his advice on my own vehicle and he had no problem helping me determine what I needed service on. Again I cannot emphasize the importance of his customer service -- which coupled by his experienced understanding of my vehicle's shape -- made me request his calendar and book the appointment right there on the spot. So he came today and I gave him the keys, he got right to work and knew exactly what to do and to tell me the time to come back and check up on him. Was able to spot another area that I needed fixing and he got it done swiftly. The man even offered me a donut in the morning, and when he reparked my car back on the driveway after a test drive he also parked it to the side to allow my neighbors room for their vehicles. He pays attention to the little things -- big deal when trusting your ride to someone.

He was courteous and very knowledgeable. He came on Saturday to diagnose the problem despite moving. He left a drip pan for my driveway that I appreciated so the power steering fluid wouldn't go on my driveway. He came back today (Mon) and finished swapping out the defective part. Now all I need to do is get reimbursed for my second alignment and I'll be a happy camper!!! Thanks, Laura

Robert did a great job diagnosing my car. He arrived on time, took his time diagnosing the car and I could tell he cared to do a good job. Robert enjoys what he does and that makes him a good mechanic. Than You Robert! Claudia

Rob is very accommodating and handled everything while I was at work. This was a great service for me since I don't have time to wait around to get my car fixed. Also U love that I didn't have to get a tow. Thanks, Rob!

It was a great experience! Robert did everything he can do to finish the job as soon as possible. Not only that he went extra mile and check other necessary stuff that can cause any problem in the future. He is really amazing. I would love to keep him as my personal technician.

Professional, communicative, timely, friendly, Robert is a great mechanic who draws on extensive experience to solve the immediate problem while explaining the bigger picture. Great at pointing out other areas to investigate without trying to make a quick sell. Lots of respect and appreciation for his professionalism.

Robert was very professional. He provided a thorough inspection of my car's issue and explained what needed to be done. I would recommend him and will book him for future work.


on July 23

Robert was awesome! I would recommend him to anyone looking for service. He showed up a bit early to get the low down on the job (albeit fairly routine service) and he finished early as well! It's easy to spot a mechanic who knows what he's doing and simply gets it done.


on June 17

Robert was extremely helpful and it took him less than one hour to take care of my problem with his expertise knowledge. What's more, he arrives on time, which is extremely difficult for a busy mechanic in Bay Area nowadays.
