Theodore was on time and diagnosed the problem quickly. He was able to get parts and have it fixed. This was my first time using YourMechanic Service. I was very pleased with Theodore's performance and would refer him to anyone needing service done on their car. I will continue to have him work on my vehicles in the future.


on January 18

Theodore encountered a delay on his previous appointment and promptly let me know that he would be late. Once he did arrive, he answered all of my questions and gave me some helpful tips for future services. He also gave great insight for DIY.

Very nice and thorough, did a great job.


on January 16

Theodore was extremely professional and courteous the whole time he was working on my car. The car needed less work than initially anticipated, so Theodore took the unneeded parts back and took them off of my final bill, which was awesome. He walked me through every step of the process and let me know what to look out for in the future if I should start having issues again. He was great to work with and I would definitely book him again. Thanks!

Exceptional. I specifically requested Ted because of the great experience first time around and he exceeded all expectations. Arrived on time, fixed the issues (replaced drive belts that were wearing out), helped me greatly with understanding how to basic maintenance of the car and fixed a few things in the car on his own and didn't charge for it. I have been recommending yourmechanic and Ted to my friends ever since the first time. I don't see myself going back to the days of taking my car to an auto shop anytime in the future.

Excellent diagnosis and service as received before (alternator on prior visit)! Love Theodore, doesn't ever try to give you something unneeded! Will use again!

If I could give 50 stars I would, he was extremely professional, polite and did a great job. The world needs more mechanics and people like Theodore!

It is really a pleasant to have Theodore to take care of my issue. After 5 fours of his hard work, my problem has gone and the car is all right after that.

Theodore is one of the best mechanic, he knows to go to the root of the issue and fix it. He is very honest and kind. He fixed our vans issue which we had for several months. I recommend him to all the readers here.

Theodore was kind, and extremely efficient! Even though I accidentally ordered the wrong wheel bearings (for the back when it was the front that were needed) he went to the trouble of finding what I needed and came back and fixed my wheel bearing in the rain and the dark and on a Sunday during the Seahawks game! Who does that!?? Theodore does, and he gave me a very reasonable quote on other things my 13 yr old car needs. I am more than satisfied with his expertise and experience and coming to my apartment complex to fix my car for me. Thank you Theodore! See you in the next few weeks to get my old car in tip top shape for my 60 minute commute each day. You rock!! I would DEFINITELY recommend Theodore and 'your mechanic ' for any of your cars needs! I am one very happy customer! !

I'm very satisfied with the service provided by Theodore, and I would definitely recommend him to all my friends. He came on time, and while working he kept me informed with the details, and I got the car fixed. Highly recommend him.

This is a great guy who did a great job! He already completed there job orders for my car. I was so satisfied with his works! I will have him to do all my car works in the future. Keep up your good work, Theodore!


on November 29

Excellent service - he came back same day as my inspection to replace my starter even though it was very late by the time he was finished with his previous appointment. Very knowledgeable and professional.


on November 27

Very honest, hardworking and on time. He checked a lot of additional things on top of regular oil & filter change in my highlander. Even topped up couple of fluids & suggested what I can do myself in near future. I think I found a permanent mechanic for my cars. Would recommend to family and friends .


on November 17

Theodore was prompt and his reporting was thorough. I had a little difficulty understanding some of his voice notes due to excessive background noise. Will be using YM from here on out.

Theodore did a good job. My problem seemed to be intermittent and he gave me some things to try in the future if my issues re-occur. I originally requested the fuel filter replaced as well , no problems with the installation.


on November 08

He was very knowledgeable and quickly identified the problem. He was very patient with answering all of my questions and provided clear explanations. I really appreciated that he put my battery lock clamp back in place (I was the one who took it off to remove and test the battery). I felt bad that it took him awhile because the bars were corroded, but it was so nice of him to do it. I would definitely recommended him and will refer to him for future work.

  • Brake System Inspection

Dodge Avenger
on November 07

Theodore was very easy going and I had a great "gut" feeling right away. This is important to me, it builds trust for me. The maintenance my dealer had been hounding me on, was not needed and he did an inspection, explained brakes to me, checked tires, top of some wiper fluids, and other items I probably don't even realize since he was thorough. Trust is important to me and I felt my car was well taken care off. I will definitely forget my dealer now where in 3 years haven't felt the trust I felt within 10 minutes of talking with Theodore.


on November 04

Theodore was great he fixed my spark plugs quick and easy and also identified other issues I was having with my car. I really appreciate that. Overall great job will use him again for more services!

Theodore was very nice,and funny guy.. He is very straight forward and was very Knowledgeable and helpful.I will definitely pass his name on to friends!


on October 27

Great guy, honest and expert! Not only fixed the main issue perfectly, but went beyond and took care of other required things. I will definitely call you next time I need any help with my car.


on December 04

Theodore was very prompt, friendly, and possesses a vast knowledge of automobiles. It was a pleasure doing business with him!


on October 22

Theodore was great, efficient and thorough he came through when another mechanic cancelled on a short notice and he had a great attitude even though it was very late! He completed the work at 12:45am the day of my 60th birthday so that I would have my car running for it! Highly recommend him!


on January 23

Theodore was very meticulous with his work. Since I couldn't find anyone in the Seattle area, he came all the way from Redmond. He changed all the spark plugs in my car. I was thinking of changing all the ignition coils of my engine but Theodore insisted I should change the one that reported misfire and helped me save some money. He also spent some time diagnosing other problems I had - screeching sound from the air conditioner and suggested what I should do. Also he advised me to change the air conditioner filter and buy it from Amazon because it is cheaper.


on March 03

Showed up in a timely fashion and got straight to work on the car. Made a point to meet with me and discuss options when another issue was observed and completed the work well and within his approximation of time.

Nissan Murano
on September 21

"It's not the impression you make, it's the impression you leave." This could not ring truer than with my very first experience with Theodore and Your Mechanic today. Between the consistent automated text updates leading up to Theodore's arrival, to the insane knowledge Theodore had on my Murano, to the final "walk through" of the repairs done, this first experience proves one thing: I will never take my car to an auto shop again. Ever. Period. With Your Mechanic I saved over 60% on my final bill. Combine that with the added perk of having your repair performed ANYWHERE (home, work, etc.) you'd be a fool not hiring them. Yes,I am sold. I am also thankful -- thankful I didn't have to tow my car to a shop for service. Thankful for the savings. And thankful it was done so quickly and efficiently.


on October 03

Theodore was a star - very polite, called ahead when he was running behind due to unforeseen events outside his control, and did the work efficiently and quickly, much sooner than I expected. Absolutely professional, and I'd hire him again.


on September 30

Theodore is very knowledgeable. He knows how to deal with car repair. I am impressed by the way he could fix my car issue so quickly. I am so happy that now I find yourmechanic as a reliable and cost-effective way for auto repair. Why didn't I get to know this much earlier? I would definitely go back to yourmechanic for any car service.
