I've been a technician for about 20 years and am ASE certified. My expertise is in GM vehicles but I enjoy working on just about every type of car. I love being able to help people with any and all car-related issues.

Terry did an amazing job on my 2012 Nissan Versa. He was a professional and worked very efficiently. I will definitely be using him again. He was a hard worker and he worked fast to have my car back on the road in no time.

on October 18

Terry has been out here to work on both of my cars and I would not want anyone else. He is amazing and always on time. Terry explains everything to me so that I know what my cars' needs are. By far the best mechanic, very personable and respectful. I now have peace of mind when it comes to my cars. In the past it was always stressful having to rely on a mechanic, not anymore.

on October 11

Terry came out to look over a car that I was thinking of purchasing. He asked lots of good questions and took very thorough notes and photos for me to look at. In the end, I felt much more comfortable buying the vehicle with Terry's blessing.

on October 03

Terry inspected my car in great detail. He told me what was wrong, and showed me the problem. He couldn`t fix it because it needs body work, but he looked up a local shop for me. A big help because I am new to this area! Very personable, very kind. That means a lot to an old lady. THANKS TERRY!

Terry was prompt and went right to work. He is very respectful and explained everything to us in detail. I am impressed with his knowledge and politeness. I am scheduling repairs for next week and am requesting that Terry be my mechanic from now on.

on September 25

Terry was able to come early to my scheduled appointment, which was great for me. He was very efficient, yet completed a thorough inspection of the services I ordered. He also went above and beyond by doing a complete inspection of my engine and was able to provide a list of recommendations on the spot. Terry helped prioritize which services were most crucial to help me decide on whether or not to fix the recommendations or purchase a new car. Terry was very friendly, helpful and professional throughout the interaction. I would highly recommend him again for any future car service.

Terry diagnosed why my car wouldn't start and he fixed it in my driveway, saved me the cost/hassle of a tow truck. Thank you Terry!!

Mechanic was great my mechanic sucks, they charged me for heater hose Terry knew nothing about it, the price quoted was $133.48, they added charges for heater hose assessment, which was not done as Terry knew nothing about it and charged me $168.00 he gave me a discount but still came to $158.68 when quote was $133.48, not Terry's fault but still my mechanic site is a rip off, Terry was wonderful

on September 09

Terry was awesome! He actually called me to ask if he could come early. I was shocked but was so glad that he could get the job done earlier. Terry was very professional, completed the work quickly, and accurately. MyMechanic has a huge asset in Mechanic's like Terry! I will come to MyMechanic often for future repairs, the price was very competitive, and the work done is excellent, because of Mechanic's like Terry!

on September 08

Terry was great!!!! Very happy with the service, Terry was on time and took care of what was needed on my car. I will definitely tell my friend and colleagues about the service. Thanks Terry !

on September 07

This guy was awesome! The Spark plug wires were literally Stuck to the spark plugs, but he was able to get them out. Along with that he fixed an issue with my vehicle other mechanics couldn't figure out. Great Mechanic right here!

Terry was on time, even early. He was very knowledgeable about the repair. He explained to me what was going on and also took the time to explain what was wrong with my car to my friend over the phone. My friend usually helps me with repairs but he was not available for this repair. I would definitely recommend Terry Shaw to anyone needing their vehicle serviced. I love the convenience of having the repair done at my house. I would recommend Yourmechanic to my friends. Thank you Terry!

Excellent service, had an appointment scheduled at 10:30 he showed up about an hour early, and worked as quick as possible. Showed me what part he replaced and answered any questions I had. Will definitely recommend and use the service again



Lexus GS300

Did a great job. Thoroughly explained everything that he was doing. Car is running great and will definitely recommend him to my friends and family.

on August 28

Terry was prompt and competent. He fixed the problem at hand quickly and without engaging in any BS or pressure sales when it was done. Definitely recommend.

on August 25

He came out to check on my car that wouldn't start. Verified that everything involved in the start up process was working fine (fuel pump, fuel pressure, ignition switch, starter, battery, fuses, etc.). Unfortunately my car simply wouldn't start after everything he checked out. He advised that the problem was with likely with my BCM and there wasn't really anything he could do about it while he was there. Even though he couldn't get it running on the spot he did give me the diagnosis that I needed so at least I can search for a cheap part and/or tell a dealer what's wrong when I tow it over there. Very knowledgeable about GMs.

on August 16

This has been a very positive experience. Mr shaw contacted me an hour prior to appt. ,to let me know that he would be arriving shortly, and he did. There was a minor issue about service to be performed/parts needed,he calmly and competently resolved the issue,went to work and repaired my vehicle. I was hesitant about trying this service. Mr Shaw exuded competency and professionalism,and I AM IMPRESSED, will definately use again and recommend to others. I have never written a review before, but this experience warrants it. Terry is a positive representation of ability,professionalism, and more importantly customer service.

on August 16

Based upon our last experience, we asked YourMechanic.com to send Terry back to take care of a few more repairs for our 2000 Suburban. He arrived 15 minutes early on a Monday morning, and again did an outstanding job. We will not hesitate to refer him to our friends.

on August 17

Terry is awesome!! As a grandmother, it is hard to find someone to fix my car at the last minute--and someone that will come to me!! Terry was early--which was amazing!! He's very efficient and knows his stuff!! I would recommend him to everyone! As a female--there are not many mechanics that can be trusted---I'm glad I finally found one that I can :)

Terry was amazing, showed up 10 minutes early and got the job done quickly and efficiently. He was very friendly and glady answered any and all questions I had for him offering easy solutions that I would be able to do myself. I will be calling Terry for all my cars mechanical needs.

on August 04

Terry was incredible! I called him to see if he could come 1 day early. It just so happened he had a cancelation this afternoon and he came right away to fix my vehicle. What a total sweetheart, he went above and beyond to ensure I was happy. Terry replaced my alternator with unbelievable expertise. Should my vehicle need repair I will certainly have Terry do the work.

Volvo V50
on October 06

Terry was early for my appointment (called ahead to make sure it was okay) and was totally okay with me looming on. I called him out to diagnose a fuel smell and, even though he was unable to duplicate smell, he talked me through everything he was looking at. In addition to trying to diagnose my specific request, he did a once-over of my vehicle which was greatly appreciated.

on October 21

Terry was great, he was on time, very knowledgeable and courteous. He knew what he was doing and explained what he was doing and future career for our vehicle.

Awesome experience, he was early and super helpful. He knew the starter wasn't a problem so he fixed something small and didn't charge the full $330 that was quoted.

on October 25

Terry was great and easy to work with. I felt like he was very trustworthy and did a great job on the car. This was a great experience and I will definitely book him again.

on October 29

Terry arrived right on time, even though he called to let me know he was stuck in traffic & might be running a bit late. He was quick and did a good job!
