I am very satisfied with how Russell repaired my daughter's car. I am in another state and I am very happy with booking through Yourmechanic and the professional way in which Russell handled the repair.


on April 18

Very professional, knowledgeable and friendly! Had a wonderful experience. I would recommend Russell to friend and family for service.

This is my first time using "Your Mechanic" and I am very happy with the service that Russ did! He was able to figure out why my windshield wipers weren't working and went above and beyond to get them repaired in the same day. Thank you for providing such great mechanics!

Russell was running a few minutes late but called to let us know, which was greatly appreciated. He did a great job on our oil change and was very professional.

Russell was very professional and personable throughout the whole process. I was quite happy with his help and quality of his work. I will definitely be asking for Russell's help for my future car needs! Thank you!

Great guy, the main reason I'd have him return is that even though he took a bit more time he took the steps necessary to get the job done right. I saw what he did firsthand. Kudos for a superb fix!


on March 01

Russ was awesome. He needed to move the appointment, but made sure to call ahead. He was courteous and worked hard while he was here. I felt very comfortable working with him and the price was beyond reasonable!!!


on October 19

Russell was detailed and informative. I appreciated this. It was also appreciated that he maintained a consistent pace to complete his tasks. Didn't rush causing mistakes nor was slow thus wasting time.


on October 20

Russ was my mechanic for an appointment I made for an Oil Change and while he worked on that I expressed some concerns about my car overheating. He listened to my thoughts on what was happening and the research I had done to diagnois the issue. He willingly checked on a few things and validated the source of the problem. Furthermore he bled the air out of my clutch for free. Russ was knowledgeable, efficient and provided excellent service. He provided me with a memorable and positive first impression of himself and Your Mechanic as a company. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an honest mechanic who will do an impeccable job and who will ensure the job is done right the first time.


on October 24

Russ was prompt, friendly, and informative. Very professional. I will definitely request him for future work. I recommend Russ and the "Your Mechanic" service experience without any reservations.

I used Russell after a positive reference from my brother, and I couldn't be happier. Russell was amazing. He kept in contact with me about everything he did with my car by telephone because I was out of town. He went above and beyond with all that he did. He will get all of my car service needs from here on out. THANK YOU!

My truck was running rough and I needed to figure out what exactly was wrong with it. Russell Gindlesperger made sure to check everything on my truck to find the problem and ended up saving me a bunch of work that other garages said I needed to have done. He made sure that he took the time to double check even after. Thanks for being so honest and hard working. He even squeezed my inspection into his schedule at the last minute.

I could hear my brakes scraping and discovered Your Mechanic. Luckily, I got Russell Gindlesperger as my mechanic. He was great and quickly changed my brakes, even working in the rain since I didn't have a garage. One of my rotors was tore up and the other was fine, he didn't change something that didn't need done. I appreciate that Russell saved me time and money. Now my brakes are great!


on October 31

Russell Gindlesperger really helped to get my truck running correctly! I have never meet a more honest mechanic who really helped to make sure everything was fixed. I wish I had only been using Rus from Your Mechanic for years.

Called ahead and on time. Changed spark plugs and did inspection all in less then one hour. Was professional and verified that I needed a new serpentine belt. Tried to make an appointment for later that day to replace. But called and told me he could not make it that he would fix later this week.

Russell is an amazing mechanic and a really cool guy! He is very helpful and friendly and keeps a great professional attitude even when the weather is nasty and problems arise. By far the best mechanic I've ever had!

Russell was amazing! He arrived promptly, was very courteous and explanatory about everything he did with our car, and walked us through the process of what was going on. We really felt like he kept us in the loop on everything, and even gave us some tips on other things to do with our car to keep it perfectly! We will definitely be having Russell again for any and all mechanical needs...and we recommend you do, too!

Russell has been out to my home four times now within the last couple of weeks to fix things that keep breaking on my vehicle. I really appreciate his willingness to show me what's wrong with the parts and I also appreciate that he is always trying to make sure I get the best deal on my repair. I'll definitely be calling Russell again when I need a mechanic.


on October 11

This review is for Russell - but first it showed Bradley then Chad for name? My car had a starter problem and by calling my mechanic to come over to fix it saved me the trouble of spending money towing it. Russell was knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. He fixed my car within a pretty short time. The only thing I'm concerned with is the re manufactured starter Russell got from O'Reilly Auto Parts. By calling O'Reilly, they told me the remanufactured part is whole-life warranty, but since the account is under Russell's name, I just wonder if later on my starter has a problem how would I get another starter without any cost. The company should think about this for the customer.


on October 18

Russell called and asked if would be okay and arrived early. He quickly diagnosed a complex starter issue. He obviously has a great working knowledge and explained all the details as he went along. The repair was complicated by the shoddy quality of workmanship from a previous repair. Russell had to repair the previous repair and replace the starter as well. I am very impressed with Russel and Your Mechanic service. I highly recommend Russell and Your Mechanic. Speedy, fair priced quality work, by an honest company and an honest and capable mechanic! What more could we want? Thank you Russell!

Russell called me when he was on his way, showed up on time and with the right parts. He then proceeded to repair my car, explaining what he was doing and got me back on the road in way less time than I ever could have anticipated. He was very courteous and knowledgeable. I don't think I really could not have asked for more. I would recommend him and I would certainly request him again the next time I need car care. Thank you again Russell!

Very knowledgeable person. Answered my questions, saved me money, and is friendly. I highly recommend Russell if you want an honest and experienced mechanic.

Although there was a little confusion regarding appointment times, Russell was able to be flexible with me. He is very thorough and wants to make sure he is diagnosing and treating the right problem. Russell is charismatic and gets the job done. I thought I was going to have to buy a new car before he came along and solved the issue on my old Honda Civic. Great guy, highly recommend him.

If this company is a godsend- which I say it is- then it stands to reason Russell must be an angel. His service went above and beyond the call of duty. Finding an honest mechanic, as we all know, is a crapshoot. You can't go wrong with Russell.


on November 13

After 2 reappointments in afternoons we connected on a Sunday morning. He did call ahead both times saying he is running over. He says he is the only full time mechanic for this company in Portland. Suggest you make appointments in the morning. He is well worth it. He is fast and professional. Will use him again.


on May 19

Russell was awesome! showed up on time if not earlier, it looked a bit frustrating taking the wiper motor out but he kept his cool and fixed the issue. there is a couple more issues with my truck so i will definitely be calling yourmechanic again soon.Thank you Russell.


on May 19

Russell was great he came and fixed my car. He also checked out my car and gave me knowledgeable info on my needed repairs. It was a non pressure info on needed repairs and fixes he did I would certainly have him back again when needed.


on November 21

Russ was friendly and thorough in his work. What made him a cut above many other auto repair companies is the fact that he didn't vamboozle me for extra commission purposes, and he addressed and solved a couple important issues beyond the purpose of the visit. Keep on keepin it real, Russ.
