Robert is straight up and kind. His service was great. The quote wasn't what was quoted and I didn't get an updated quote, that surprised me. It was $60 more than quoted......

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!

Excellent communication and kept me in the loop. Honest and up front with the work needed. Got to the site on time.

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 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.

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! :)

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

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

Robert called ahead of time, arrived on time, performed the work promptly. He explained all the work that was done (a regular maintenance). I had some questions after the repair, Robert answered the questions even after 7 pm and came out to check the car just to be sure. Couldn't be happier.

Robert came, he saw and he conquered. He arrived before time (while totally accommodating my schedule) and quickly ascertained the issue at hand. He was extremely friendly and I could he was amazingly professional as well. He had a superbly well stocked mobile shop with a motor running at the back of his vehicle which totally fixed my concerns that this was not going to patch job. Robert is going to be my go to mechanic from now on....and yourmechanic.com, you guys rock!


on October 04

Robert was amazing. Really communicative and efficient. He is also great to chat with on a personal level. He worked on my 1995 BMW m3 for a routine oil and spark plug change and demonstrated his advance knowledge working on European cars. You can tell he is very experienced. I definitely recommend him and look forward to working with him in the future.


on November 21

Robert is great. Professional, polite,knowledgeable. He fixed the problem. and said he will be back in a couple of weeks to make sure every thing is running smoothly. I would definitely hire him again and use your excellent service again. What a great idea! So convenient.

Hummer H2

Robert called me in the morning and asked if coming a little early was an option? I said yes, absolutely!!! I found Robert to be very friendly and knowledgeable. This was my first time not using the Dealership. I could tell that he was a well seasoned Mechanic and we talked as he worked on my Hummer. After the Tuneup was done, he also crawled under the car and searched for any kind of leaks that may cause future problems. I feel very satisfied with the work and the timing in which it was done.


on October 18

He called me saying that he could come by an hour early. Very friendly and quickly diagnosed my car's issue as well as a deeper problem with the fuses. Great experience! Love YourMechanic and recommending it to friends!

Robert was on time. He cleaned up the area after fixing the car. And, Robert took a few minutes to explain what would happen during the job, as well as what other future work might be necessary. Courteous, focused, efficient yet conversational. Thank you Robert for getting this vehicle mobile again.

Robert was on time, in fact he arrived early. The work performed was excellent. Not only did he replace the alternator, he took a little time to point some other areas of the car that needed attention. Most definitely will recommend the services of Robert to my friends and will be requesting his services in the near future. Great experience.

Robert is very knowlegable in auto mechanics, Robert's trouble shooting methods were very complete and he was very prompt on arriving at my site. Robert is clear on providing analysis and billing procedures.


on December 27

Wish I could give 6 stars - not just 5. Robert's attention to detail was extraordinary. After pre-evaluating my vehicle just to ensure that we were dealing with the right set of issues, he came in and spent the entire next day bringing my 'baby back to life. Not only did he revive her, and get her humming again - he broke a number of his own tools in the process - but that just motivated him even further to persist until she was back in top condition. If you want someone determined to go the extra mile, Robert's the name. I think I may have found "my guy" - as they say.

Robert was very informative and explained in detail the condition of my vehicle's oil leak. He was professional and was quick with the repair. The oil leak did indeed stop.

Great experience. Robert was on time, called to let me know when he was arriving, and was efficient getting the job done. He was friendly and even recommended I skip replacing the rotors since they were still in good condition (reducing overall work order and cost). A big name brake shop would NEVER do that! Would definitely use the service and Robert again.

Robert was timely and efficient. He gave great feedback and I trusted his advice. I would absolutely recommend him and use him again. Thanks Robert!

Robert was on-time and finished the job professionally. He inspected the brake rotors and recommended that I didn't have to replace the rotors. He made sure that I was completely satisfied with the service.
