Theodore was excellent. He was there early and started going over my car immediately. H was able to fix the problem that I was having. Highly recommended.

It's nice experience with theodore. He's professional with good experience

Theodore has done two service visits for my car now. Both times he arrived as scheduled and finished in the time frame projected. Everything went as planned. I feel confident in his skill and would definitely recommend him to others.

I've been lucky each time to have him work on my car. He knows what he's doing and is working hard to make sure that you feel that you are important. He listens to your concerns and gives you options for repairs without making you feel like your a cash grab. Thank you for everything.

Theodore was very professional. He diagnosed what I thought was a more expensive repair as just needing new spark plugs. He was courteous and efficient. Overall a great experience.

On time, professional and honest. Got right to work, easy to talk to and gave several good recommendations. Would love to have Theodore work on my vehicle again!

This was our first time using YourMechanic and Theodore was the perfect mechanic to work on our car. He was professional from the beginning to the end. Helped us out with noticing extra items that could be fixed. He took the time to answer a few questions I had that did not have anything to do with the job at hand and I truly appreciated this. Our job was finished on time. Thanks again Theodore!


on July 28

Knowledgeable, responsible, and more. He knew what he was talking about and treated me with the highest respect. Went out of his way just to make sure things were alright by showing up early and communicating with Your Mechanic about meeting dates sooner. Showed me a problem with my A/C cap didn't have any threads explaining it could be a possible problem. Thank you very much!


on July 15

He checked out the other questions I had about my car and gave me advice about it. Changed the fuel filter in a jiffy and didn't leave a trace of it having been done. He made sure everything ran smoothly before he left. Very convenient and great service!

Theodore is very knowledgeable and professional. He arrived early for our appointment, took his time and answered all questions. I would "highly" recommend his service and we plan to use him again. On a scale of 1 to 10, he's a solid 10!


on July 06

An outstanding professional who provides a 360 view and transparency in everything he does. I had a really hard engine problem to repair (Lean System). Theodore tried A then B then C....till he identified what caused the misfire of the engine. Based on my previous horrible experiences with some local car repair shops, i can tell you for a fact that he saved me many 00's, if not 000's, of dollars. Highly recommended, will call him again for some other minor issues with a second car we have.


on August 02

He was really late for the appointment because of previous appointments. It really impact us because we had to cancel our other appointments. I have given a more favorable review because at least he is courteous and my previous appointment was punctuate. In my opinion it is more of the company's problem than the mechanics because they have to have some backup plan for this kind of schedule issue.

Theo did a great job. Not only did he arrive early (with asking first, if it was ok) he explained all of what he was doing. He also didn't mind me asking him a lot of questions. Overall, I highly recommend Theo!

Punctual, nice and very professional!! He also explained everything very well. I would certainly call him again for the other services required for my car in the future! Thank you Theodore!!!


on June 28

Theodore was great and showed an amazing amount of patience as I was about 35-40 minutes late to our scheduled appointment. Keep in mind that I didn't even have a way to let him know that I was running late. So hoping for the best, I'm flying through my neighborhood, turn down my street and sure enough he was still there. Theo got straight to work before I could even apologize for running so late and when I did, he simply replied oh no worries, I understand how it is, don't worry. In the end he was able to tell me what was exactly wrong with my car and where I should take it. Overall he was great and I'll definitely be using him for all my car work from now on.


on July 22

Theodore was fantastic! He let me know what was really needed on my car. I really liked that and the brakes are all good now!😊👍🏽


on June 18

Theo was absolutely amazing! He didn't pressure me into anything but he also explained everything very well. He was even great with my kids! I will definitely ask for him the next time I need any work done!

Awesome customer service. Friendly, very quick at making the repair. Theodore showed forethought and changed the appointment time for an earlier time to allow me to split my bill into three payment methods, because the office closed at 4, which I was not aware of. Very helpful!

Theodore arrived when the time frame scheduled. He quickly got to work and although the repair took a little longer than expected (removing the alternator on the AWD model is slightly more difficult) he knocked it out. Once he was finished, he had me run it through a few tests and drive it around the block. He verbally reminded me of the 12 month, 12,000 mile warranty and noted potential upcoming service. Overall, very professional and courteous.


on June 14

Theodore was running late but was very polite and went right to work. He's very knowlegable about my 2002 Porsche Boxster, I would certainly use him again and highly recommend his services.


on July 22

Theo is awesome! It's the second time I've had him work on my cars and he is always professional and fast! Thank you Theo!


on June 08

I like Theodore. He is experienced and complete the work on his own. He is a little bit late to come in but it's in reasonable time frame. Everything goes well and smoothly. I will definitely use his service later


on July 13

Professional, dedicated to fix the problem, confident in his work and makes you feel like you're dealing with someone honest.


on June 02

I would highly recommend Theodore to anyone who needs work on their automobile. Theodore is very professional and honest. I had my 98 Honda Accord brakes done five years ago and was not sure about needing it change. Theodore worked on my rear brakes and let me know that it did not need to be replaced yet. However, the brakes only needs adjustment which he showed me how to do for future. This save me money. He also looked over my car to see if anything else needs to be done. Thank You, Theodore

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!

Theodore was meticulous and thorough...he was professional, on time and pleasant. He had several recommendations that I plan to follow up on soon. He provided me total confidence with his work and his manner. I think I have found my regular mechanic. Thank you.


on October 08

Theodore was prompt, courteous and great at what he does. He answered any questions I had and most importantly tried everything until we got the car started! YourMechanic is a great service that comes straight to your home / office and it's what I needed. Cheers Theodore!

I used Theodore services for my Dodge Charger breakdown. He not only inspect the issue and repair it but also look into other parts of my car and valuable suggestions. I will use his services again. It also more cost effective.
