Theodore was great. He did a great job replacing the water pump on my GMC Yukon and was able to answer all my questions on other potential fixes my car might need. Definitely will work with him again and recommend him highly.

It was great - he was clean, fast,discreet and honest. He did the job right in my parking garage also we thought we had broken the door handle but it turned out someone just turned the child lock on. He let me know and didn’t charge me for fixing the lock. Thanks!

Theodore has got to be the finest mechanic I've ever had experience with, he's dedicated punctual and precise in his work, please only send Theo with my car needs work thank you

My experience with Theodore was excellent. He communicated to me when he was running late from a job. When he arrived to my place he was polite and professional and got the job done. I appreciated the time and effort he made to complete the job even though how late it had become. I would use him again for automotive work in the future.


on September 14

Excellent! He figured out that a bad relay was the issue, replaced it and the vehicle started. What has taken me weeks of frustration in trying to figure out why the vehicle wouldn't start, he had it figured out in a short period of time.


on September 12

Theo did an excellent job. He was friendly and professional and explained and answered questions for me. He goes the extra mile and definitely ask him to work on my car again when needed!

Arrived on time, changed oil and replaced brake pads. Polite, professional and efficient, very pleasant to work with, highly recommended.

Excellent experience. Theo sent a text to confirm en-route and arrived within the time-window quoted. [ Love the "Mechanic Tracker" BTW]. Work was completed quickly with no fuss and no mess. So much easier than the dealer!

Theo showed up on time and got right to work. He was professional and took care of everything very efficiently. This was the least stressful mechanic experience I've had. Good job!


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 ...


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.

I was very pleased with the work that he di don the car. Hard working and did not stop till the job was done right. Would recommend Theodore to anyone.

Theodore replaced the brakes on my Grand Caravan. Originally I just wanted him to change the rotors and pads, but after detailed inspection of the rear calipers he insisted that we change the calipers as well. He spent the time to explain and show me that the rear calipers were not working. The brakes in the van are working well now and we are satisfied with the work he did. It ended up costing us an extra hour of labor, but the end result was worth it.

Theodore is the best!. Thought I had a masseter cylinder issue. Turnout to be a hose problem. H fixed and gave me an idea of other potential issue's that a common for high mileage cars like mine - but no pressure. He was courteous and professional. I will be calling on him for future repairs and will recommend him to everyone.


on June 14

Theodore arrived on time and helped me to understand what kind of inspection he was going to perform. After inspection, he gave me some good tips to take care of car as this is my first car purchase. I am satisfied with inspection report and service provided.


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.

Honda Odyssey

My car broke down on the side of the road and I didn't have time to deal with it myself. I had it towed to my house and found the your mechanic.com website and decided to give them a try. Theodore did a great job replacing the alternator on my 2006 Honda Odyssey. He clearly knows what he is doing, was professional and willing to explain what he was doing and worked beyond the time allotted for the job to see it completed. He honored the price that the website quoted me at even though it took him longer to complete it than quoted (the site misquoted how long it would take for the job). I will definitely use this service again and would happily have Theodore work on my vehicles.


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.
