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.

He is always prompt and he calls if he is running late which is top of the list for me. He also starts working promptly and explains what he will be doing. Very polite, personable and professional.

Robert is really pro at his work and very professional. He fulfills his commitment. I will definitely recommend him for any car repair as he is trustworthy. Thanks Robert.

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.

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 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 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 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.

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.

Robert arrived on time and spent 2 hours to examine my car thoroughly. He discussed the diagnosis result with me with an open, honest and professional attitude. I am very satisfied with his service and would use his expertise again.


on June 01

Very helpful and fun gentleman. Took care of everything on getting my jeep on and running which is 20 years old. I highly recommend him for any mechanical needs.


on May 04

He saved my money. My initial quote was $650 but when Rob saw the car it went down to $140.He made sure that only those parts are changed which are actually necessary. He was very professional and helpful.

Quickly diagnosed a battery drain problem and promptly replaced the faulty brake switch. Spent time inspecting the car for any other problems. Generally a very good experience!

This is really not Robert's fault but it would have been a perfect experience if this didn't require two appointments since wrong part was ordered. There is no reason not to have the right parts with a VIN from the start.

Robert is an excellent and expert mechanic . His knowledge of vehicles as well as his extremely professional manner make him a great choice to work on your vehicle . He goes above and beyond . I have used him on two jobs, he has always called the night before to touch base, and then is always prompt and courteous. He is awesome . Not only is he a great and master mechanic but also a great person . We are lucky to have him work and repair our vehicles .

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.

Thank you Robert Mostipak for fixing my vehicle. I could not have asked for a better mechanic. As usual Robert was very professional in handling the repair work and fixed it to my satisfaction.


on August 07

Robert has done it again. My Ford had become possessed, stating on it's own and blowing the starter. Robert came out to run a diagnostic and found that a exposed wire was hitting the battery. This caused the starter to continually crank and blew it out.

Robert was very professional and worked quickly. He went above and beyond by acquiring a mechanical part on my car for almost half the price of what the dealership charged for the same part. He is very skilled at what he does, and I would highly recommend him.


on November 12

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.


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 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 perform his usual good work. Very thorough, knowledgeable and professional. I have used Robert in the past and have always been pleased with his work and have recommended him to my friends. Robert is always on time and represents your company well.

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 was quick to diagnose that the changes recommended by the VW dealer was ALL not necessary. He figured out the needed changes and worked with me to order the parts. Even though this took 3 trips to get the right parts (the company was supposed to procure parts which was not done correctly & no fault of Robert), he was finally able to procure the right one and do the work to set it up. Recommend Robert for your car issues if you want to have just the right work done, rather than taking to the dealers, who seem to suggest unnecessary stuff.
