37 years of experience
San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose, CA

I've been an automotive technician for over 35 years and am ASE certified. I've worked with Audi, Nissan, and Toyota and can work on either foreign or domestic cars. I love to help people and can work on any car. I'm an expert at diagnosing car problems - if you don't know why your Check Engine Light is on or why your car won't start, give me a call and I'd be happy to check it out at your home or office.

Tom is an awesome guy! Even though my car started right up when he got there, he did a full diagnostic on my car and made me feel much more comfortable and now I know exactly what my car is doing! His personality is amazing!

Knowledgeable, friendly and goes above and beyond to explain the problem to a layman and talk through possible solutions pros and cons. Will give you tips that you would not otherwise get over the counter at the dealer or a shop.

Tom was clear in calling out the issues with my vehicle. He gave practical guidance on items needing immediate repair versus those needing monitoring for a follow on service. He was punctual and got the job done on time as promised.

I got replace ignition coil and spark plug on BMW 328i 2011 model, It was very good experience with Tom, he knows well about BMW and does the job nicely. But on your mechanic did give the $20 credit for the first time use as last time I had just contacted your mechanic.

on September 08

Tom was very thorough and he explains every step of the diagnostic process to me. I don't know much about car but listening to him I can sense that he's very knowledgeable and definitely know what he was doing. Looking forward to get my car fixed this Saturday.

Tom was great. He was on time (even calling ahead to let me know he was on the way), came with all the proper tools to do the inspection he needed to do, double-checked both the battery and the alternator, and my car is now charged up and happy. He was just pleasant to work with, clearly knew what he was doing, and was knowledgeable about the car. I would happily pay for his services again!

on August 15

Tom is very knowledgeable and made things very easy to understand about my vehicle. He is definitely a great mechanic who goes above and beyond the call of duty for his customers. He does really take care of his customers. This is my second appointment with Tom so far and there will be many more to come!

on August 08

Tom was excellent from arriving on time to finding out what was the problem was with my transmission fluid leak. He definitely knew what he was talking about while inspecting and finding the solution. I highly recommend his services as he is very friendly and enjoys conversations with his customers.

Tom is very good. He explained everything and helped determine what work was necessary for the repair.

on March 09

Tom was excellent. He was very friendly, honest, and went above and beyond for my oil change. He explained everything to me very clearly, and I was able to trust his words. Will definitely contact him again when my car needs maintenance.

on April 08

Tom showed up right on time for his scheduled appointment. He's a very pleasant person who has a great respect to autos. I am a very meticulous with my vette and have done most all the work on it myself. Tom did a thorough test on the battery to insure that it was indeed the problem. Once he & I agreed he changed out the battery and made sure everything checked out correctly. Highly recommend his service to anyone!! Thanks Tom

Great job Tom! Thank you for being on time and doing a great service. I am so glad I met you. He did my battery replacement a week ago, (I don't know anything about cars) he explained everything to me. He even checked my brakes and informed me with everything. Today, he did my brakes and it works so perfect and better than before. Thank you for your work. I am so glad I met you! - Mary Grace

on November 08

Tom showed up earlier than my requested time and he explained everything to me thoroughly! I would love to book Tom again in the future. He is very polite, professional and knowledgeable. I don't know anything about cars, he was kind enough to explain to me what's going on! :)

Tom is an outstanding mechanic who could diagnose the battery problem quickly and fixed it quickly. He not only fixed it on time, but also recommended all the existing problems quickly. I recommend him

Tom, came to our location and knew immediately what was wrong with the car without using any electronic device. He is amazing I am going to use him to fix the remaining problems with my car. Thanks Tom, Sarita

on November 29

My car broke down and had to be towed to my apartment. I used Tom's services to diagnose the car. He kept me informed about the details of the diagnostics he ran. Unfortunately, the problem with my car was bigger and Tom told me that it will take many more hours to diagnose. He was very honest and laid out all the options for me. Sadly, it is my car's fault and not Tom's. He tried to do his best.



Pontiac Grand Prix

Tom is a very good mechanic Wish there would be more people around like him. He fixed the problem in a very short time. I had this problem before and it took the Pontiac Dealer 4 month to fix it not to mention the cost. Thanks again Tom. Regards Juergen Westerwelle

I believed I found an honest mechanic. Tom was schedule for full tune up for my car. But when he check and test the car he told me that I don't need to change the spark plug. If you go to other mechanic they don't tell you that, they just change the spark plug to get your money even they know the spark plug still good. But Tom didn't, instead he told me what need to be fix in my car. Wow this days it's hard to find a honest mechanic like Tom. Tom will be my personal mechanic from now on. I save $214.00 due to honest mechanic like Tom.

Tom is very well versed with the quirks of older European cars such as mine. He did the job efficiently and cleanly. I'd be happy to have him back for future jobs.

on March 11

Tom was excellent. He was very communicative, and did exactly what he said he was going to do. There was some trouble finding the car (it was parked in a lot) and he spent 15 minutes looking for it before finding it, the whole time being gracious about the situation. I would recommend him to anyone.

on March 03

The problem was quickly solved & fixed. Thanks to Tom for the speedy job. He was the greatest! Yes I was very happy with the out come & will diffidently use My Mechanic, in the future!

Great work! Tom was friendly, professional, and easy to speak with. He left the place as clean as when we arrived, and even threw out the packaging for my new brakes! In and out in less than an hour.

on March 28

Great concept and very well done. Tom is excellent. I needed a pre-purchase inspection done on a vehicle and Tom performed that service perfectly. He was informative, thorough, and professional. The entire process was easy and worked flawlessly. I am very impressed. I would not (and will not) hesitate to hire Tom in the future for my car work. Thanks!

I like Tom I didnt feel like he was just trying to get money out of me. Some guys try to convince you to replace more than whats needed. He's a good guy.

Tom was extremely competent in diagnosing the possible reasons for the leaks. He proved to me several things that were NOT the cause as some other mechanics claimed. And was very honest with his assessments. Looking forward to him taking care of my car from now on.
