Robert did a fantastic job on my bakes! Plus he did a thorough inspection of the engine . He's without a doubt a Master mechanic and I appreciate your work Robert!


on February 24

Robert was a really honest and knowledgeable mechanic. When I requested the inspection I was really dreading the cost of the repairs and since luxury brands usually come with high maintenance costs I thought for sure it would be a costly repair. Fortunately, Robert was able to solve my problem in less than 30 minutes. He didn't try to add additional services or repairs which is honestly more than I can say for most shops out there. Excellent overall experience with Robert and YourMechanic.


on February 22

Robert was able to take care of the service I needed with my vehicle with ease, and I felt very comfortable throughout the process. I could tell he genuinely cared about my needs, and the job which I thought would take several hours, took less than 30 minutes. Great job Robert!

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.

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 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.


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 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.

AWESOME!!! Very knowledgeable, honest and patient!! And funny. He made my car purchasing experience more comfortable, and made me more Confident in buying the vehicle


on September 01

Robert is amazing! When I first got an inspection to see what was wrong with the car he performed a full diagnostic while keeping me informed. What he figured out in the first 15 minutes, he spent even more effort to make sure the problem wasn't over or under diagnosed. The quote was very reasonable. I quickly set up a follow up to fix the problem, and now the car runs like new again. Instead of trading, now I'm going to keep it.


on December 02

Robert was sent to finish a job another mechanic could not complete, and Robert was timely, professional, and clean. I will certainly be requesting Robert personally the next time any of my vehicles need servicing.


on November 30

Robert completed a pre-purchase car inspection for me. He was very helpful and friendly, and he had plenty of great insight. I would definitely recommend Robert and this service to anyone buying a car from a private seller.


on November 19

My car had some problems following Roberts repair, due to a faulty mechanical part, but he ordered new replacement parts and returned to fix the problem very quickly.

Robert is professional and friendly. He helped me replaced the shock absorber within a short time(even without taking the wheels off). Also helped me checking the breaks, although he could not find where the strange noise come from when breaking he did a good inspection on breaks. I will consider using YourMechanic from now on instead of going to a shop waiting for half a day, and not seeing what they are actually doing.

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

Chevrolet Venture

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 June 17

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


on November 14

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


on November 14

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!


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 November 18

Robert knows cars; it doesn't matter if it's European, Japanese, or American. I will have Robert fix my future car issues because I know the problems will be fixed.


on July 26

I love this service! It's awesome. No rental, no travel and it's done in my driveway?Great prices too....very fair and more than half the price of dealerships.

Arrived on time, quickly finished service. Found a few things that he cleaned up --- I am not a car person so don't exactly recall, but there was a random clip somewhere in the engine and a plug was missing from an oil change he thought. Very professional. For example, Robert came to my office so I couldn't come meet him immediately when he started/finished due to work, and he was very patient and understanding.


on July 31

Robert was very friendly and knowledgeable. He fixed the two issues I had, and he completed it in a timely manner. I paid exactly what was quoted. I have already recommended Robert and YourMechanic.com to friends and family. I plan to use both for any future work.


on August 02

Very pleased with Robert's work, and my interaction with him. He went beyond what I contracted. I will request him again when I need more work done. I'll just add, I like this new mode of car service that YourMechanic offers. I also am pleased about the documentation [pics] that came with the receipt. I will take any opportunity to recommend this service to my friends. The timing belt replacement would have cost 3x as much at Chrysler service.
