He was very kind and honest. I definitely appreciate the fact he didn’t try to give me the run around and charge me for services I didn’t need. Do to a great experience, I have recommended to my friends. Thanks.

Ruben was by far the best mechanic I have ever used in my life! He was prompt, very respectful, quick and did a fantastic job. I told him I was taking a trip and please inspect car to ensure a safe trip and he was truthful and didn't try and sell me anything I didn't need which I so appreciated! I wouldn't hesitate to use this service and Ruben again.



Honda Pilot
on September 13

Ruben arrived on-time (early actually) and went straight to work. He was very professional and completed the work quickly and neatly. The alternator location on the Honda Pilot is not easy to get to, but it gave him no problems. He was very friendly and the price was good, with no last-second gimmicks or needless add-on's. I drove the Pilot about 60 miles after the work was done and have had no problems with it. I recommend Ruben to anyone needing help in the Tampa area.

Ruben was on time, kind, knowledgeable, and really knows his trade! I did prior research of the work needed for my car and the amount of time it takes for completion, and Ruben surpassed the average time. Now my car is riding smoothe again. Thank you much Ruben.

Ruben was great he showed up early and kept us in the loop the whole time. He told us his recommendation and what he thought was important to get fixed 1st.



Lincoln Zephyr
on August 20

Excellent, arrived right at scheduled time, and on a Sunday morning no less. Was very friendly and professional. Replaced a starter in about 45 min. (Would have been quicker if I stopped talking to him about the weather) My first time using Yourmechanic, will only use them for all work in the future. and will ask for Ruben every time. Like any first time user of an online company, I was somewhat skeptical until he showed up. All was great and the best part was he didn't try to sell me a lot of other stuff. Made a couple recommendation but didn't push it like others do.



Saab 9-3

Ruben was excellent top notch!! Ruben contacted me Friday to let me know he had the parts and was available to do the job on Sunday if I would like. This was much appreciated but I didn't have the car available until Monday for him. Received a text at 8:00 am indicating Ruben was en route to my house. He arrived 10 minutes early which was perfectly fine I appreciate punctuality. After a quick introduction and verification of service he got right to work. Ruben completed the work an test drove the vehicle an had me test drive as well. Everything was perfect and done within an hour an for a great price in comparison to shops that I had received estimates from. I will highly recommend Ruben and Your Mechanic to family and friends. I would like to note that Ruben drove 40 minutes to service my vehicle as this was not his normal work area. So glad that he did!

I've dealt with many mechanics since becoming a car owner 36 years ago, but I have never experienced the complete mechanic (professional, straight-forward, convenient, knowledgeable, goes above and beyond), courteous, and friendly) until Ruben!
