Ford Escape
on May 22

Rod showed up on time and began working on my car immediately. He was courteous, professional, and very knowledgeable in what he did. So knowledgeable that he knew a work around and turned an estimated 3 1/2 hour job into just under 2 hours. What!!?? Now that's the type of workmanship I can fully support moving forward. My days of taking my car to the mechanic shop are over. No more waiting for my car to be serviced due to the "first come, first serve" nonsense. Not to mention if the shop gets backed up your car can be held for an extra day. Yup, had that happen to me more than once. This service is a life saver big time. They come to you, focus on your car only, and have you up and running in a more precise time frame. Getting back to Rod, he even spotted some areas in my front suspension system that needs attention. He's right because it's an issue that has been plaguing my car for some time now but I've been unable to find the problem on my own. I definitely recommend to anyone who's on the fence or are tired of being burned by another repair shop to give Your Mechanic a try. I am extremely happy with the results and workmanship and book Rod if you can. Thanks again Rod.

I can't say enough good things about Rod. Not only is he friendly and personable but he knows his stuff and completes any job asked of him in the least amount of time.

Today was the first time that I used Your Mechanic. As I learned today, Your Mechanic is very convenient, you can have your vehicle repaired either at your home or office, and its very economical because your not bringing your vehicle to a car repair shop, and paying their outrageous prices, and labor charges to help them pay for their overhead. I waa very impressed. Riod is an awesome mechanic, very professional and knowledgeable He arrived for the our appointment earlier than expected, fixed my brakes, test drove my car, and made sure that everything was in good working order before he left. He pointed out a problen with my car that willl need to be addressed . I will be calling upon Rod to take care of my future mechanical needs on my car. I highly recommend my friends, and family to contact Rod for repairs needed on their vehicle.

Rod was extremely friendly and answered all questions I had. He was very knowledgeable and patient with the job considering the issues he had with the clearance for the alternator removal.


on April 04

Rod is an outstanding professional. His honesty and integrity is the highest. He kept us posted as to his whereabouts, when he would arrive and did so on time. It was such a pleasure working with a mechanic of the highest quality. I would not hesitate to have him repair my vehicle. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone.


on April 04

Rod is very friendly and explained everything he was doing. We were having issues with the car starting so we talked about all the possibilities that could be causing it. He was great and very informative.


on July 26

Rod took great care of the car & suggested some up coming maintenance as this is an older car I have given to my son to drive. He did not try to pressure me into any additional services and was able to get the part and come back the same day. Rod is my new mechanic for both cars. Why would any one go to a shop and sit and wait to pay more money. I am a fan of this service!


on October 28

Rod provided efficient and prompt service by getting to the bottom of the problem without having to incur high costs. He was very helpful and cordial. I highly recommend him to my friends and family.

Rod has performed the last two services on my car and has done a stellar job. He's very thorough and is very skilled. I've recommended YourMechanic to several friends and coworkers based on my experiences with him.


on September 30

Rod arrived on time and completed the repair (diagnostic+starter repair) within the specified timeframe. I am very satisfied with Rod's service and it's likely I will use this company in the future. The service cost was very reasonable, too.

Nissan Murano
on March 02

I was shopping around for quotes to replace my brakes and it hit me, do I really want to go wait at a car shop for hours while they work on the brakes? I did a google search for mobile mechanic thinking I would find some local mechanics and the first link I found was YourMechanic and they offered instant online quotes. I was blown away by that. So I put in the info and the price was cheaper than anywhere that was quoted AND I could schedule when I wanted to be done without ever having to leave my house. I gave it a shot. #1 - I scheduled for Sunday morning at 8am which is unbelievable that you could get car service that early in the morning on a Sunday. #2 - YourMechanic said to allow an hour for the mechanic to arrive. Rod arrived at 8:05am and got started right away. He looked at the car and asked for the parts and got started right away. I didn't have to wait for car after car to be worked on before a shop finally got to my car #3 He changed the brakes and rotors so quickly. He had all the necessary tools that he needed. It took him about 45 minutes to an hour to actually do the work. #4 After changing the brakes, he test drove the car and noticed something strange. Upon investigation he found out exactly what the problem was and provided me a quote to have it fixed #5 Rod checked all the fluids in the car, checked the cause of the check engine light #6 After Rod was done, I received an email with a report of the service done and PICTURES of everything. WHO DOES THAT??? This report is accessible online and they maintain my service records with them. THIS BY FAR IS THE BEST CAR SERVICE EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER HAD. GREAT PRICE, GREAT SERVICE, GREAT MECHANIC! I would recommend YourMechanic & Rod as their mechanic to anyone!

ROD WAS A PROFESSIONAL FROM THE MOMENT HE PULLED UP TO MY HOUSE. HE WAS NEAT AND CLEAN AND EXTREMELY COURTEOUS AND CONCERNED WITH MY PROPERTY AND THE WORK AREA. I FELT VERY COMFORTABLE WITH ROF BECAUSE OF HIS CONFIDENT ATTITUDE.


on December 20

It was a pleasure to have Rod back to work on my car. His experience in engine repair is evident when you watch him work. Thanks Rod for the work you performed for me. The car runs great.


on March 21

This guy was amazing. I just hope my next guy is as thorough as this gentlemen. He literally saved me thousands of dollars. If he didn't do that inspection the way he did, I would 've had to spend a lot of money on the car. The sales men was caught red handed trying to sale a car that had thousands of dollars in repair. I have another appointment tomorrow with another rep, hopefully he is as great as Rod.


on December 20

While it was only a serptine/Drive Belt replacement job he did it with the expertise of a first class mechanic. I would trust my car to him anytime. Thanks Rod.


on May 06

Great job, very good communication and very knowledgeable. He knew what the problem was right away and didn't wast anytime. I would recommend him to any family and friends

I was skeptical with using an online mobile mechanic, but I had no choice my car wouldn't move. Rod was great, we had an appointment for Wenesday. Rod had an emergency come up so he got me in a day earlier. He arrived on time and was finished in an hour. He even looked my car over and gave me a fair qoute for additional services. I'll definitely be calling him to service my cars in the future.


on September 26

First time customer. He came with the right part and it was OEM quality, not a cheap copy. He did the job quickly and competently. He seemed to have enough experience to handle more complicated repairs. I like knowing the price in advance because some of the local repair shops are rip-offs. Your Mechanic did what they promised at the agreed price. I would certainly use them again.

Rod was a very likable, up-front guy. Immediately diagnosed the problem and took steps to make sure it was fixed ASAP. The service was more expensive than if I had handled it myself, but it was more than worth the extra bucks to have someone else take care of it from start to finish. This was my first use of MY MECHANIC, but I would use them again with no reservations. Worth the money.

Great service. Showed up 10-15 minutes early. Did the job quickly and efficiently. After this experience, I will never go back to the Toyota dealership for services again. All they do is lie on what's wrong with your car so you have to spend unnecessary money to fix it. YourMachanic.com all the way from now on!

I have an older muscle car that had a bad alternator and a fried battery, and rather go throught the hassle of calling a tow company,that always complains that my car is too low to put on the flatbed,I decided to check the internet for mobile service,and after finding Your Mechanic, was happy to see that Mr Rod was available in my area. After reading all his reviews,I was leary that someone could be that good! Rod arrived earlier than the scheduled time, had all my needed work done in the most professional and timely matter possible.Rod even went with me to the auto parts store to make sure that I had a proper battery exchange. I now understand all the rave reviews that Rod had received before. I am now very proud to be a member of the Rod Fan Club!


on July 16

My appointment with Rod had to be rescheduled due to unforseen circumstances. He came the next day and arrived 23 min EARLY! Rod was supposed to be off today, and was feeling a little under the weather, but still completed the job and answered my questions professionally. Look forward to hiring Rod again for any car needs.


on August 09

I received a text alert from Rod letting me know that he was on the way to my house. Upon arriving he introduced himself and went right to work on my truck. Rod had all of the necessary tools and the new parts to do the job. He was very knowledgeable,fast and clean. When Rod finished the job. He double checked all of his work, took pictures and then took my truck for a test drive. I was very impressed with Rod. He is a first class professional, who truly has a passion and cares for what he does. I will definitely use Your Mechanic and Rod again in the future. Thanks again Rod.


on September 16

Rod was good and explained everything, this was the first time I used this service. They had the appointment before mine take longer than normal, so he attempted to reschedule because he was running behind. Since I could not reschedule, Rod came out as he originally promised and took care of business. So he showed up 45 minutes after our appointment, but was understandable and Rod clearly communicated every step of the way. I had his cell phone also so I could communicate with him directly (if needed) and not a dispatcher, which was good to know.

Awesome, courteous service from minute one! Way more affordable than 2 quotes I received from other local car repairs and sooo convenient! Rod was not only on-time but arrived a few minutes before the appointment. Very friendly, knowledgeable and to the point. I will NEVER repair my car with anyone else, you have a customer for life!


on June 09

He showed up on time, and seemed to be knowledgeable of the situation. He had to wait as the battery was dead but stuck it out and made me aware of the issues of the areas he inspected.


on November 15

Rod was awesome. Performed a full check let me know what needed to be brought to my attention and very professional. Did a great job with the oil change and would definitely recommend him. Will be using him again! Thanks Rod!


on January 08

Rod was awesome. The weather was not in our favor and Rod called me in advance to reschedule for a few hours later. He came on time and did the work very well and explained everything in detail. He even showed me the old brake shoes to confirm that the auto mechanic that recommended the job was not lying. I would use YourMechanic again in a heartbeat, especially Rod. Great job!

Rod did a phenomenal job replacing and repairing many parts on my Jeep. It's literally driving like a brand new Jeep! I have already told many about how great a job he did so that they could use him for all of their needed repairs and services.

Rod is a very detailed and honest mechanic. I will trust no one else on my vehicle but Rod! Do yourself a favor and schedule your repair with him. He will only recommend the work that you need to get done and not price gouge you to get the work completed.
