Great experience as usual!


on January 15

Good guy. Spent time explaining issues on the car. Fixed most of the problems , I would have been happier had he replaced the filter and not charged more for oil.

Theodore is really experienced. He fixed all the problems of my car. Some issues had been bothered me a lot for a long time. He always considers the best practice for my car maintenance and always have a great idea for fixing my concerns. He's very patient to answer all of my silly questions. Really appreciated. Will recommend the service to my friends.

Finally a honest and competent mechanic! Theo was on time and did a great job replacing the brake pads on my car (my dealer mentioned that they needed replacing). Theo showed how they had been deceptive with me. The pads still had substantial life left and didn't need to be changed. Theo also topped up the fluids in my car before leaving. He finished the work quickly and left the place clean.

Very impressed. Theodore goes above and beyond. He was able to diagnose my oil leak and fix it right away so I could get back on the road. He also noticed a problem with my brakes that I have been trying to figure out for awhile that no other mechanics were able to find. He fixed that, too, and now the problem is resolved. If you are using YourMechanic in the Seattle area, book Theodore. He really knows what he is doing.

Theodore is the most honest mechanic I've ever dealt with. He is professional, and punctual. I was hesitant to utilize this service because I wasn't sure how good it would be but decided to take a chance. I am sure glad I did. A local shop was going to charge me 3 times the price, and it might have taken a week or two to get it done. My issue was resolved in under 24hrs on a weekend and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg. This literally saved our Christmas because the other shop was going to charge more than everything we had saved for our Christmas. Thank you!

Theodore was prompt and did a job well done. I had initially requested to have both my front and rear brakes and rotors done, but he told me that I only needed the front ones replaced at this time. He also rotated my tires at no charge, and gave me additional details about managing some other potential issues about my car. I appreciate his honesty, and trust his advice.

Second time I worked with Theodore. He is punctual, friendly and the jobs were always well done. And best of all it's much easier to accommodate and find a time with Theodore than with a shop.


on November 26

Theodore was extremely friendly and helpful. He let me ask questions and went over his suggestions for maintenance throughly. I will be using yourmechanic again when it’s time for new brakes.

Theo was very thorough and provided excellent service replacing my brake pads. I would definitely recommend Theo and would use him in the future. Thank you!


on November 22

This was my first time using a service like this and I will absolutely do it again. Theo is a car enthusiast and knows his business. I'm never going back to the dealer for maintenance!


on November 22

Excellent service. Theodore knows his stuff, is patient and if he thinks you need some additional stuff, he will order it and reschedule if he doesn't have it or can get it in reasonable time. The prices are very fair and reasonable and less than 50% of what one would pay if you were to go to a dealer. On top of that you get top quality parts. Highly recommend Theodore and this company.

Third car Thei has worked on for me. Beats dealership in convenience and pricing, wish would have found him earlier. Highly recommended.


on November 19

On time, and very professional. He knows what he's doing, and was very honest. When asked about other services, he said that I don't need them yet.

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 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 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 December 12

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! !


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!!!
