I find Robert Panaggio an excellent asset to the YourMechanic organization. He’s knowledgeable and very skilled in providing automotive service to customers who’d rather sublet the job to folks who knows how to do it. Today, I had the pleasure of knowing how Robert approaches the job at hand. He removed my Subaru Forester’s fuel sender unit and replaced it with a new one to my great satisfaction. But, to do it is not just a simple R/R, he had to pull out the rear bench seat and other accessories on the way, to just locate its location prior to the actual R/R task. Robert is prompt in reporting to work and he made me feel at ease and comfortable that I am in good hands. Overall, my experience with your organization in terms of quote request, pricing, appointment setting, and job follow through is second to none. I would definitely recommend your company to my friends and to whomever not familiar with YourMechanic.

Amazing guy ! Although the website was down and there was no way for him to contact me he waited patiently at my office lobby. Got done in 30 minutes. I had my radiator fan and he installed it for me. Did a full inspection for my car and was I delighted when he said it was doing great. !

on December 16

The dealer found some leakage on my oil pan. The quoted cost was astonishing. So I got Robert to give me a 2nd opinion. Robert used to be mechanic chief for race car company. He was really knowledgable on all aspects of cars. After checking the leakage, he identified it was a small seepage that wasn't worth to fix. He never tried to up-sale me anything like the dealership did. Going forward, Robert will be the first guy I go to for my car issues.

I thought I needed a new alternator which is what my appointment was for. Robert showed up and after checking the car out, discovered that the alternator was fine. Instead of simply installing a new one, he was honest which saved me $160.00. And bonus, he showed up early for the appointment. I would highly recommend him. Thanks Robert!

Robert shows up early, is thorough and friendly. I trust my car with Rob 100%. My car is an oldie but a goodie. It runs so well for an 18 year car. I trust it's because I've been using MyMechanic for a few years now. All of the mechanics are great. I just choose Rob when he's available.

on May 22

Robert was punctual (actually came early - finished another job and asked if he could come earlier - worked well for me). He was polite, efficient, very friendly and personable, communicated well about the state of the car, and got the job done quickly. I recommend him without reservation, and hope I get him next time.

Robert is my new, personal mechanic and I couldn't be happier. My first experience with YourMechanic was this week when I had a huge water pump leak and the mechanic I had used in the past wasn't available. After discovering their website and reading several positive reviews--utilizing YourMechanic seemed like a no brainer. I scheduled my appointment for Tuesday afternoon and I received texts and emails when Robert was on his way and when he arrived. It awesome not having to leave the house to get my car worked on. Robert was prompt, courteous and a true professional. I can tell Robert is very detail oriented and takes great pride in his work. He offered to let me watch and answered all my questions. After he changed the water pump and tuned up my 2000 Suburban it runs like brand new. He also did a detailed review of my entire car and made suggestions on what I should keep an eye on. My overall experience with YourMechanic and Robert in particular was outstanding. I have already started to spread the word to several friends.

on November 21

Robert was very diligent, helpful and flexible. He also gave great advice on how to maintain my car and explanations of the issues I was facing. When I called with last minute requests of things to check/change for my service he was very flexible and very responsive.

on December 15

This review is for Robert. ..... awesome guy.... such an amazing service. Did my oil change, guy was on time... did additional inspection, made honest suggestions. ... will surely work with him again.

on October 22

This gentleman is the best, he arrived just in time and wait for my wife to bring her car back to home, showed his kindness. My wife asked me, for the next time, she would like to get Robert back for further service. he is the man. I really appreciate his work.

on October 26

This is the 2nd time Robert fix my truck;He found the problem give me tips to keep my truck in good shape;As usual he got on time ( actually early :I'd really appreciate that!!) seem to me very knowledgeable;I highly recommend RObert to my neighbors at the Mobile Home Park

Robert was great. He showed up on time, was personable, and he found the issue with our car. All in our front yard. Great service and we will definitely be recommending you guys in the future.

Robert came out to diagnose my car and did a wonderful job. I was impressed by his level of professionalism and automotive knowledge. I recommend using his services and YourMechanic.

on December 22

I was quite surprised on the professionalism and manner he explained problem with my vehicle, in witch in my case it made the decision easier weather to repair or junk my vehicle. Being an older model car, I'll let go. He did a good job on diagnosis of my vehicle , l it saved me the trip to a shop, and the cost of a tow, which was well worth the cost of diagnosis!

on January 01

Less than a month after installing a brand new car part it started having problems. I went to the people at YourMechanic for help and they were able to diagnose and fix the problem without requiring me to replace my new parts with more new parts. They saved me hundreds in the process. Honest mechanics trying to save you money$$$

Robert was absolutely great. He called to ask if he could arrive early. Which was great! He did my vehicle inspection and was very efficient. I will be looking for Robert in the future of my Durango ever needs service.

on April 20

Robert is great. He replaced my rotors and brake pads and did an excellent job. He even showed me pictures of the old worn equipment and the new installed equipment. Do happy with your mechanic - it saves time and money with quality work

on January 05

Robert arrived ~ 10 min earlier in a Sunday morning with a friendly greeting. When he turned the key, his immediate reaction was that it was the low battery which was the new one that I replaced few days ago. I did not think so since I was bale to start the car only twice couple days ago with the new battery before he came and I had watched quite a few You Tube videos and tended to believe it was caused by the starter (I also discussed with another garage mechanic and he also believed it was the starter though I have to two the car to him), but Robert proved his point by showing the measured voltage by meter. We tried on couple boosters (power stations) and they did not help - afterwards I read comments online and most boosters won't work to help jumping the car (the new small size portable chargers seem to work better to start the car even you removed the dead battery). So he helped to jump my car using his car with some wait time (few minutes to charge my new battery) and it worked! After ~10 minutes running, we turned it off and it started again. He suggested to let it run longer 30-60 minutes to fully charge the new battery. The car has been running without starting problem so far. The lesson learned is that even the new battery needs a full charge. My wife and I were happy to have Robert to look at our car and with other good suggestions and we saved money for not replacing the starter and towing the car to dealer or garage. We have not used YourMechanic before and would recommend anyone to give it a try and strongly recommend you to use Robert to see yourself for a good service.

on February 04

Rob was great! He showed up a bit early, navigated through my confusing parking lot, and serviced my car in record time! He gave me detailed advice and explained all aspects of his work and recommendations.

on February 19

Robert was great. Showed up on time. Diagnosed my problem fast and fixed the problem just as fast. My car is running great. I would recommend him to anyone.

on September 23

The best! He knows his stuff and explains things to you in a way that help you to decide what the best options are. He is timely and friendly, and has been called back to work on several of our family cars with the same excellent service every time.

Rob was polite and professional, but relaxed and friendly. Told me about his experience and why he is working for Your Mechanic. Showed me how the brakepads are measured and showed me the worn grooves in the rotors. He was efficient and was a good sport about having to work in the sun on a hot day. Two thumbs up!!

I was very pleased with Robert. He went over the report from Ford and checked thoroughly all that they had said. In fact he found something that O'Reilly had pointed out to me that Ford claimed was not there. Thank you, Robert, for cleaning out the mouse nest. Really appreciated.
