Trung

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

I've been a professional mechanic since 2009 and have a passion for what I do. I worked my way up from fixing my friends' cars to running an independent shop to being a certified technician for Toyota, Scion, and Lexus. My goal is to fix it right the first time and I take care of your car as if it were my own. You can count on me to get your car back on the road and running well!

Extremely satisfied. Trung showed up on time and got straight to work. The whole repair was done very quickly and professionally, with a few suggestions on further maintenance.


on May 08

Trung is awesome! He advised to delay services that I thought I need to a later date so that I do not spend extra money on something that is not immediately necessary. I'd definitely want to work get Trung again.

I was totally impressed with Trung. He showed up on time and first inspected the brakes to determine the work that needed to be performed. He recommended not to do the back but do the front. He pointed out also potential issues down the line but did not try to sell. His work was outstanding and he even tightened the parking brake without even asking. The entire user experience was off the chart. The best of it all it was done at my house and price was lower than estimated

Trung was great! He not only conpleted my oil change in record time but he also took the time to check my battery, my drive belts, and filters. I would definitely use Trung again.

Trung came on time and got the job done flawlessly as usual. This is my third appointment with him and as before he did a splendid job.

Very professional, an expert in his field. Showing up on time, and willing to wait even I'm still not home yet. Good job! Thanks.


on April 07

Showed up before time and did a thorough test that gave me the confidence to buy the car. Also test drove the car to check breaks.

Trung arrived promptly, was kind, efficient, and effective. I will absolutely book another appt with him in the future and highly recommend him!

Trung arrived on-time and agreed that a service I initially requested wasn't necessary at this point. Would book again. Thanks!

Very professional and courteous service. Trung arrived on time for 7am appointment. Trung realized it was early AM, and waited for several minutes after making the phone call. Completed work on time and advised me on car maintenance.

My car rear brake pads were reported to be due for replacements. I decided to give your mechanics a try. Trung arrives on time and completes the job in a timely manner. This is my first experience with your mechanics and it has been a good one. I am very happy with the work.

We had a bad cell on the battery and the car would not start. Our battery charger kept showing that the battery was fully charged. Trung quickly diagnosed the problem and brought in a replacement battery for our car model fully charged. Our problem was fixed within half-an-hour in the convenience of our own garage.

I have booked Trung for the last few times for oil change of all my cars. He was great, on time, and kept the place clean. I will continue to book him for future car services need.

Trung came on time for my appointment. I had originally asked for front and rear brake pad replacement but thought he would also resurface the brake disc. When he came in I asked him about the brake disc re-surface and he was transparent and said that he can only replace. He promptly got the new brake disc and came back later to replace. He also found out that I only needed front brake pad replacement for front and not for rear. He did his job well and communicated promptly.

Trung did a great job and worked thru the inevitable challenges of replacing parts on a 15 year old car....in this case a frozen exhaust manifold stud which broke on dis-assembly. He obtained the part without me having to deal with it and was promptly back the next day to finish up while I was at work.


on May 05

Trung saved me hundreds of dollars by honestly telling me that not all of the work I requested was actually needed -- though I asked to replace four struts, he found that two of them were actually still okay and didn't need replacement. That's how I wish all mechanics were! He also helped me figure out how I could get an issue with my drive axle covered under my dealer service contract so it wouldn't cost me anything. I wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.


on July 14

Trung is great! He is super knowledgable and was able to fix my car quickly. He cares about the cars he works on, and doesn't mind teaching at the same time. I highly recommend him!


on June 15

Trung was great! He called ahead of time to let me know he was on his way, quickly diagnosed the problem and fixed my car in no time! I was very happy with the services he provided.


on October 02

Trung was very prompt, and friendly, he gave me some advice about my tires and didn't try to sell me on any unnecessary services. He even gave me a discount off my service today. I appreciated how quickly he worked on my car so I could get on with my day.


on January 15

Trung called and arrived a bit earlier which I told him he could do that since I'm already back in my location. He took care of it like a pro and fast. I found out he has to drive from quite a distance away to my location which make me feel bad. My Mercedes warning light was all reset after the oil change and everything is back to normal. Found a minor leak in trans axle. Awesome job Trung. Keep up the good work.

I would like to give Trung 6 stars if the system allows me to. Last week I took my car to Precision Auto Tune in Sunnyvale for oil change and tire rotation. They examined my car and found the driver side front strut was leaking oil. They gave me a quote of $630 trying to persuade me to replace both driver side and passenger side front struts, because they told me if one strut is broken, I'd better replace both, otherwise if I replace one, they will charge additional $70 labor for alignment. I refused and started to search online, and then I found YourMechanic and booked Trung. In the beginning, I thought I do need to replace both sides, so I submitted the request and got the quote of $440, which is a lot cheaper than the shop. Yesterday when Trung was here for the replacement, he examined and tested my car carefully, and then he told me the passenger side strut is completely healthy and no need to be replaced. That saved half of the cost which becomes $220 only. Compared to the quote of $630 from the shop, I saved $410 ! The work was well done and I can feel the difference right after it is replaced. I would definitely use Trung again for my next service.


on January 08

Thank you Trung for performing my oil change! It was very neat to watch the whole process for the first time - also thank you for taking the time to try and inspect my car for any leaks, I was worried about them since buying the car from the dealership.

Trung was really helpful with his suggestions and managed to replace my rear brakes quickly. He followed up with me twice to ensure that the car was functioning smoothly. He even advised me on replacing certain parts that I would have overlooked.


on December 12

Wow! So amazing. I really love the service last time but Trung took it to a whole new level. I had a crazy day at work and he just handled everything and texted me at each step of the way.

Trung's service was superb ! He arrived on time, was very polite, knowledgeable & completed the brake/rotor repair in a reasonable amount of time. Trung earned every star of our 5 star rating & we will call on him for all our future vehicle needs.


on November 18

Trung did a pre-purchase inspection on a 4Runner that I was considering buying. The owner said it "runs excellent." The car had major mechanical issues and Trung's inspection saved me at least $2,000 in repairs. There was a slight language barrier but his diagnostic skills are top notch and were worth the $120 fee. I won't purchase a used car without YourMechanic's pre-purchase inspection services. Having mobile mechanics willing to travel anywhere in the Bay Area is a huge plus. I will also consider them for repair/maintenance services once I purchase another car based on this experience and the repair order quote. :)

Trung was excellent. He is highly competent, knowledgeable, professional and personable. He was thorough in his work and clear in communicating his observations and recommendations. I will definitely request him the next time I need something done on my Lexus and would gladly recommend him to others.
