So helpful! Not only did he change my oil and rotate my tires, he showed me where my airfilter was, and how to change it myself. He was on-time, polite, and overall wonderful to work with!

Thank you to Russell for notifying me of a problem that I can now bring to the dealership because my car is still under warranty! If not for him I may have had to pay out of pocket for some serious repairs.

An absolutely competent and friendly mechanic! Russ explained everything he did, what he checked and how to solve it. He worked quick and precise. I will not hesitate to contact My Mechanic again to have Russell take a look at any new problem. Great experience and sooo convenient to not have to drive a car somewhere when there's an issue with bad transitioning or unsteady RPM. Thank you!

Russell was right on time. He didn't seem to mind me hanging out and observing, while explaining what he was seeing, and he gave me some pointers for keeping my car maintained. I will likely use him when I get ready to make repairs [after I sell my other vehicle]. BTW: I'm annoyed that you do not have a "n/a" for the third question. How do I know he diagnosed/fixed a problem correctly until I get it taken care of [?]

I had a pre purchase car inspection done on the car and Russell did a thorough job looking over the car. He found a few small things that needed to be fixed and overall recommended that I buy that car and made me feel confident about my decision.

Russell did a fine job on what I would call a difficult project. To replace the fuel pump on this van it was necessary to drain & drop the fuel tank. It took a lot of time for him to complete the task but he stayed with it until completion with great results. Although the replacement fuel pump is louder than the original it does its job well & as long as I can hear it I know it's working. Thanks for sending Russell. He is a tremendous help.

I felt as though Rus was an extremely informative individual -- he allowed me to observe his work and ask questions along the way. Best of all I felt like he was a genuine individual who wasn't trying to up-sell me. I got my brake system replaced for a great deal.

I was quite impressed with the service, Russell provided. Based on his suggestions. We scheduled appointment. The following week to wrap up all of our preventative maintenance issues. We fully intend to use "Your Mechanic"in the future. Bart Langley
