Shaun is very professional and very knowledgeable. He arrived on time and finished on time -- describing what he was doing along the way.

My daughter's car experienced some kind of fluid leak when she arrived at her work. Since I was not local at the time, my daughter was not able to confirm the type of fluid leaked. I booked an appointment with Shaun since he repaired my Acura at my home earlier in the year and I was very pleased with his knowledge and the work performed. He arrived on time at my daughter's work place parking lot and was able to diagnose the problem in less than 5 minutes while it was raining hard. The radiator hose leading the water pump became dislodged. Since I worked on cars in the past, he gave me some advice if I were to repair myself. Fortunately, it was an easy fix for me and got my daughter's car ready to go by the time she got off work. I was very surprised Shaun was available on a Sunday! Same day response! I will continue to book with Shaun on any future diagnosing or repair needs. Thank you Shaun!

Very pleasant, hard working, and informative. On time reasonable amount of time to complete repairs. It was surely a pleasure.

Shaun was very knowledgeable about the issue presented and quickly identified the root cause of the transmission leak from the axle seal. Would definitely hire Shaun again!

Took reasonable time get my car up and running. Also his recommendation of power steering fluid worked like a charm. I'd definitely get his service.

Shaun was very professional and got the job done in a timely manner (In The HEAT). The biggest thing for me about mechanics is that they need to be trustworthy. Unlike other auto shops who scammed me into getting unnecessary repairs. This is the first time ever I had peace at mind about getting an auto repair and I can confidently say that I will be a returning customer when I need a repair done. Stay away from those greedy auto repair shops.

this is not my first time having Shaun do work on my cars and I give him a 10 or perfect rating every time. I request Shaun because he is an expert at his job and very professional.

Shaun was on time and straight to the point! Got the job done and was cleaned, packed, and ready to go in about an hour and a half. Already booked another appointment with him.


on September 05

Showed up 15 min before the appointment time. Very professional and knowledgeable. Explained what he was doing and why. Cleaned up while he was doing the maintenance.

Shaun was fantastic! I originally made the appointment to have my rear brakes replaced, based on a dealership recommendation. Turns out there is lots of life left in my rear brakes, rather than take advantage of the situation Shaun did a thorough inspection of both the front and rear brakes. He took the time to not only explain the brakes, he answered all my questions regarding other things on my car. I would definitely use him again.


on November 30

Shaun's earlier appt cancelled so called to see if he could come earlier, so . . .'thumbs up'. Arrived shortly after he called, got right to work and finished within the time allotted for this job. Loved that he actually took my car for a 'test drive' after changing the spark plugs plus the rear brakes to make sure that all was in good standing. Yeah!!! Great job Shaun! :)


on August 15

What particularly impresses me about Shaun is the level of service and unwavering professionalism he displays. He understands that my knowledge about auto mechanics is next to nothing. He patiently works with me to identify my concerns, takes time to explain and offer solutions. The work that Shane does should be held up as an example for others to try to emulate. I believe that Shane deserves to be commended for his service which is always well beyond my expectations.

The pre-purchase inspection found several items that I would not have seen from the Internet photos alone. Even though I didn't end up purchasing the vehicle in question, I appreciated the efforts, photos, and detailed analysis of questionable vehicle condition that led me to skip a car that would have required additional repairs. Thank you.


on August 23

Have to say Shaun is well professional and intellectual in conducting himself.Diagnosis of my vehicle condition was advice to me both the pro and con to my satisfaction as a customer which elevated me from Shaun standard of his professionalism considering one in a million mechanic you can find.


on August 06

This was my first time trying this out and I have to say it was great. I have a small list of this I still need done to my vehicle, so I will definitely use this service again.

Shaun was fantastic to deal with. He arrived early for appointment advised on the services that was needed and recommended and more importantly advised on services which maybe performed more efficiently at a later time and/or party. He was honest , transparent and professional which is a rare commodity for car service professionals !


on October 07

Shaun was super nice and explained everything he was doing. He even showed me the broken part so I could understand what needed replacing. I will definitely ask for him if I need any other repairs. My window works perfectly now. Hopefully I never have to go to the dealership again!!!! yay for Shaun and your mechanic.com. They RULE!!!!!

Shaun was great! Got there early and got the starter replaced quick! He checked out the car to see what else I needed and gave me an honest suggestion for something that I would not have known about, so someone would not rip me off later. All was good! Appreciated it all! Definitely would car him again if I needed anything done. :)

As usual Shaun was ever the knowledgeable professional. He jumped into the job and completed it in short order. He is truly a trustworthy auto mechanic, with exceptional skills. I know my repairs or service will be completed correctly and post haste.

This was the first time I used this service, but it won't be the last. It's a very convenient way to have my car serviced. Shaun was on time and did a good job, and was very professional.

Shaun was great! He arrived on time, replaced both sensors on the car in a timely manner, he was polite, courteous and attentive to my many questions as he worked. This is the 1st time I have used this company and was a bit skeptical. I have always worked on my own cars but my age and disabilities now prevent me from doing that. So glad I have found someone I can trust and not bite me in the pocketbook. thanks Shaun!!!

I found Shaun to be an excellent mechanic. He was entirely professional and careful about working under the hood. His approach is very systematic and competent, and he is sure of each step he takes in servicing your car. One could wish their doctor would be this timely, professional, and courteous as Shaun. I had a bad battery, and he had me up and running in no time. Thank you very much, Shaun!! It's great to know I can count on Shaun in the future if I need auto servicing.

PUNCTUAL POLITE CLEAN VERY EXPERIENCED. NO JEEP DEALER WOULD COME NEAR HIS QUALITY/CHARACTERISTIC PROFESSIONALISM. I MADE A GREAT CHOICE NOW ITS UP TO YOU. STEVE OF WALNUT CREEK

Shaun arrived on agreed time, was super friendly and provided me with some extra "mechanical" advice on other areas of my car. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and use his service in the future.

My car was making a strange sound so I had someone come out to take a look. Shaun was friendly and professional and was able to ease my mind that my car wasn't going to fall apart while I was driving it.

It is commonly known that most people have no confidence in Auto Service Shops. Too many times it has been proven that the shops are more concerned with increasing service bills unnecessarily for higher profit, than providing quality service at a fair price. I am one of those skeptical customers, hence the reason why my research uncovered "Your Mechanic", and now I swear by the organization. My recent service was performed by Shaun James, and I have nothing but good things to say about him. He was on time, he was very knowledgeable, professional and willing to educate me on a variety of mechanical aspects of my vehicle that I was unaware of. This gives me the confidence that not only is he competent at what he does, he "has my back" and is only concerned with identifying the service I need, and the things that I should be aware of for the future. When you find a mechanic like this, keep him. They are difficult to find. Remember, I am a true skeptic, and I will never rate anyone or anything this high unless they earn it!
