Honda Odyssey

on April 23

I was apprehensive about using this kind of service to replace a starter in 2006 Honda Odyssey. But everything went smooth as silk. Great service. On a Sunday morning! This saved me a lot of hassle that I would have had to deal with otherwise (tow truck to regular mechanic, Uber home, Uber back to pick up vehicle, missed work, etc). I never heard of the company before this weekend. I contacted "Get Wrench" before this company but, "Yourmechanic" responded within a couple minutes with the estimate and ready to schedule. The other company took several hours and when I finally tried to open the quote, their website did not work. I am already planning on scheduling oil change next weekend on my other vehicle with Sam. I highly recommend Sam. You can request him by name.

I appreciated that he was always on time and ready to work. He worked carefully and very professionally. He also explained several things I did not know about some specifics of the valve cover job that he was doing. This was very useful information.

Sam was great. Let us know the timing, when he was on his way and when he arrived. Was very honest and got to work right away. Figured out the issues quickly and took care of everything. We thought we had a brake issue (told by a shop) but it turned out it was something else. He inspected everything and made sure we understood what was going on. Really a good experience and would recommend. Will use again.

Sam was on time, knew his stuff and was honest about what was wrong with my car. In the end, the repairs were going to cost more than the vehicle was worth so I sold it. That said, I will use his services going forward with my new (used) car.
