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.


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.


on December 01

Robert is the BEST mechanic yourmechanic has ever sent me. This is my fourth time working with yourmechanic. I had an issue with the car battery and Robert not only diagnosed and fixed the issue he actually stayed back to help me start the car. He also arrived bang on time which was really great.


on November 29

Nice, fast, & Priced right. Robert arrived few minutes before the appointment time. I gave him my keys and he texted me once the job was completed. From booking to job completion , the entire process was smooth - all in all - easy peasy (well -deserved )5 stars.

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!!


on June 10

Robert was very courteous and professional, and clearly cared very much about finding a solution to my car's problem. The inspection was thorough and well-documented, and I would certainly use him again in the future.

Robssert was excellent. He arrived early, and took about a minute to diagnose the issue. He had a very friendly demeanor, and clearly knows what he is doing. I highly recommend him.


on October 16

Robert is great, he showed up a few minutes early and did me a solid, the initial major issue i thought i had I ended up not having. He could have confirmed what i thought; done the work and made way more money for the job that wasnt done. Stand up Mechanic. I will be using for any further mechanical needs for all my vehicles.

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.

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.

Oil leak. Robert was professional and did an excellent job. The cost was very reasonable. I was very pleased with his service! I would use his service again!


on July 20

Robert was perfectly on time, friendly, and helpful! He explained his whole process and worked quickly while still doing a great job. So glad I used YourMechanic!


on December 03

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.
