Theo is very dedicated and hard working. It was pouring rain when he changed oil for our car. He just followed his process and got things done in the heavy rain. Thank you.

Punctual, kind and very professional. He gave me an indepth diagnosis of my car and recommended repairs. His confidence gave me relief that my car was in skilled hands. I highly recommend!

Theodore was right on time. Understood exactly what was needed to be done and got right to work. I visited a few times during his work and every he was working hard without a blink. Super polite and professional, and then suggested some future sessions that would keep my truck working great. He said take it for a test drive and right away, my truck purred again. What a great service.


on March 21

I booked an appointment for an "engine indicator on" check, but we found a couple more issues with my car. Theodore fixed them all on the same day! He bought all the parts needed and repaired everything while I was working at home. I liked it very much because I didn't have to drive anywhere and buy anything. It was my second time I used YourMechanic and I highly recommend this service!


on March 20

Great as always. Did a pre-inspection on his own time to confirm the problem, got the parts and fit me in the next day even though his calendar was full. I have been recommending Ted to all my friends.


on March 14

Theodore was great. He is meticulous, he shared a lot of knowledge with me, he stayed until the job was done, he was prompt, he cleaned up the work area well afterward. He even gave me some tips for DIY work I was doing on the car. And when some billing issues arose, he helped resolve them. I thought it went very well.


on March 13

Theo was courteous and professional in his approach to inspecting my car. He looked in and around the car, under the hood, inspected the interior, and ultimately took the car for a test drive. He checked fluid levels and coloration; tire pressure and tried depth; paint and exterior trim; and noted overall condition. All-in-all a very positive experience with a knowledgeable pro!

Jeep Commander
on March 11

Theo has fixed my truck several times now. 2007 Jeep Commander with LOTS of miles on it. He has replaced the water pump when the truck overheated and had to be towed home, replaced the alternator when the truck wouldn't start, replaced battery parts when the truck wouldnt start and had to be towed home, and now he just replaced the starter when the truck would not start again! Each time he has come out, the truck is not working at all. It's always working perfectly before he leaves! He is very professional - lots of communication and I totally trust him to fix the truck in an honest way. He will tell you options if you have more than one, and he does his job quickly and very well. I really hope he is always around, because I feel like I have a mechanic I trust and one that can keep my truck running as long as possible. Thumbs way up.


on April 16

Extremely capable, confident in his diagnosis and ability combined with a great sense of humor. My vette has a new mechanic!


on March 11

Theodore was very responsive, very professional by performing all the required inspections on the car. He also gave me some tips for stick shift and was kind enough to answer all my questions.


on March 08

This was my First time using my mechanic due to the convenience of them coming to you and cost less than a shop. OUr issue was the coolant level dropping in the reservoir tank with no visible leaks. Theodore contacted me when he was on his way and to also let me know traffic was heavier than usual so he would be a little late. What I really liked was the GPS tracking so I could see where he was and how soon he would be arriving. Theodore didn't find any leaks and could not determine what exactly may be causing the problem, but he was very thorough in explaining everything he tested and inspected. Even though he couldn't determine the issue, it gave me peace of mind that everything checked out good including the head gasket which is what I was really worried about. He did mention one scenario that may be causing the coolant level to drop so at this time we will just keep an eye on it. And if something does need to be replaced, I will absolutely be using Your Mechanic again.


on March 07

Theodore is very skilled. He found the problem quickly. To my surprise, he's already got the parts on the way here. So the initial inspection appointment also had the problem fixed. In addition, he helped me with other problems. He is also a very nice guy and easy to communicate. He gave me advice on any further potential problem that might happen on the car model based on his years of experience.


on March 04

He was very nice, he listened, was honest about our car and situation, didn't try to talk us into doing things that were not going to help or would have been uselesss inevitably. I will definitely use the service again and request him.


on February 26

Theodore was great! Showed up right to my door with all the necessary tools and parts and made the repairs in no time. Very friendly and skilled in what he does. He was happy to explain to me what the issues were as well as giving me advice about maintenance on the rest of the vehicle. Car runs great now. Couldn't be happier with Theodore and the YourMechanic service. Fantastic and at a very reasonable rate and utmost convenience!!!


on February 24

Had a 1:00 PM appointment for a BMW that had not been started in a while. Theodore showed up on time and in 10 minutes had worked out the issue. He was very transparent about the price of the replacement battery and went and bought one and installed it. He then did a great inspection of the car and listed out all the the things that required work. He was never pushy and thoroughly professional. All in all a great experience.


on February 20

Showed up ahead of time and finished the oil change without any issues. While at it, Theodore filled up air in the tires which were low as well. Good friendly and professional guy. Very convenient and decently priced. I will be using the service again! Also, will be recommending it to friends and family.


on April 21

Theodore did a great job beyond what is in the orders, help me fixing a few other minor issues without charge,


on February 19

Always a great experience. Theodore has been out several times to work on several vehicles for me and has always done a fantastic job, pointed out other issues that should be worked on but has never pressured me into doing the work unless I want to. Always professional and accommodating and on time.


on February 21

Theodores was very punctual and he called me in advance of the appointment. He explained why he was there and started the testing of my car immediately. He politely gave me the choice to go to the drive test with hem or not. He completed the test alone and came back after 45 minutes of drive test. He had explained in detail all his findings on the car during his drive test and gave me also the recommendations. He was very professional and polite is all his approach and work he has done. Thank you, Fekede Taeme

Theo was on time. He was very courteous and didn't mind me asking questions from time to time. I felt we had a good rapport. He did a great job of explaining everything to me and pointed out some things to me about the car as well. Says my car should last another 10 years at least..


on February 15

Theodore did an excellent pre purchase inspection and saved me from buying a lemon. His report included pictures and audio and was very detailed. I would 100% use him again!!


on February 14

Helpful and nice. I like the car, however after the feedback I received, I have decided that the best thing will be not to buy it since it had some serious issues.


on February 06

First time with Theodore, just to hear a second opinion on some small oil leaks that were detected at the Audi dealership. I wanted to confirm that the dealership was trying to rip me off ...

I just discovered YourMechanic.com. I decided to try its service. Theodore came a few minutes before the appointment. That does not happen with other services often! You get the 2- or 4-hour window, and serviceman shows usually up at the end of the window, or later. Theodore was better than perfect on this item. He started work immediately, and was done quickly. He explained to me the work done and his recommendations for the future. He showed me worn out parts, which was very appreciated. He asked me to test-drive the car. He noticed the worn wipers and he replaced them (I had a spare pair) for me and refused to charge me for that. He was very polite and patient. That was a great experience, and extremely convenient for me. And pricing was considerably lower than the dealer quote. The invoice came to a little less than original quote. So it is obvious that I will use this service, and Theodore's in particular, again, and encourage my family and friends to use it Thank you Theodore! The system behind the whole operation of YourMechanic.com is also impressive, from the first moment of investigating the site, to the invoice generation. It is very smooth, very modern, efficient, and thorough, with no confusion whatsoever. Quite unusual. It even notified me this morning when Theodore left for the appointment and allowed me to monitor his progress, so I was ready for him when he arrived.


on February 13

He arrived on time and was very professional. He completed the service within an hour which was very good. Totally satisfied with his services.

Theodore was very methodical and complete, Very professional. I highly recommend his services.
