Excellent service


on January 30

Robert has always been respectful and honest. I always request him when I need work done on my car. A friend told me about the great job he does and always knows what to do.


on December 23

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!

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.

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.

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.

Robert actually arrived early and performed the job within 1.5 hours, as compared to the estimate of 3 hours. He cleaned up before and after the job was completed, so my driveway looked great. I would definitely recommend Robert to anyone else looking to get some repair work done through YourMechanic.


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!!!

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

  • Coolant still leaking

on June 19

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!


on August 26

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.

Robert was able to get my car problem fixed quickly and efficiently (window regulator replacement on a 2002 E series Benz). Very knowledgeable and very friendly as well.


on September 14

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.

Likable and Expert Mechanic. Showed up on time. Installed a timing belt kit (all belts, water pump, idlers, and tensioner) within the estimated time. I look forward to using Robert again for any other work I need on my cars.

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

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.


on September 30

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.

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 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.

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!
