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.

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.

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!

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 .

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.

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.

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 October 21

I was unable to meet him in person but I loved the texts letting me know that he was on the way, arrived, and prompt report with pictures when he was done. The pre-purchase inspection of the used car I ultimately ended up buying was a great investment - less expensive than local mechanics that would have required me taking the car to them.


on October 18

This guy was fantastic. He was extremely knowledgeable and he went out of his way to grab a battery for me and when he came back with the wrong one, he went out again to grab the correct one. This was, by far, the greatest experience I have had with an auto mechanic in my life. He even had a great personality as well. We talked while he was working on my battery cable. This guy was fantastic. I highly recommend him to anyone needing auto mechanic services.

Another great appointment with Theodore. He did a great job and was flexible to handle some unexpected problems.

Theo was a nice and thorough technician. We had a good chat and he gave me car a clean bill of health! Thanks Theo!


on October 12

Theodore is a very experienced mechanic and he guides very good. As suggested by authorized dealers I planned for Air filter changes which was marked as red in review but when Theodore checked it was in very good condition as he suggested not to replace it. I had a valve gasket repair on my Hyundai sonata for oil leakage. Theodore replaced it very cleanly and guided me for further issues in my car also. I will recommend him for any repairs on any car. Satisfied with service provided from yourmechanic.


on October 06

Theodore was very professional and knowledgeable. We appreciate his work and would not only recommend him but will welcome him to work on our vehicles in the future. Thank you Theodore!!!


on October 04

Texted me when he would arrive. Discussed the repair plainly and did it efficiently. We discussed the efficacy of the repair. I would recommend him highly.


on October 04

Very friendly. Very professional. Very thorough. I don't have to add much more because I booked him based on the testimonials, and they've all said it already. Will gladly use him again when needed.

It's taken me a while to do this, so I apologize Theodore. This was my first time using YourMechanic, so I was a bit skeptical especially since my quote for this work was just over $100 less than 2 other shops and at least an hour less of work time. Aside from the huge convenience of YourMechanic saving me the hassle of planning the time to take my car to a shop, I ultimately decided to use th for the savings. After the work Theodore did on my car I have nothing but great things to say about him and YourMechanic, in fact I've been recommending them to everyone I know. Theodore was right on time, very professional and very courteous. Aside from the great job he did fixing my car, which is still working a month later without any issues on what he repaired, I was most impressed with his patience with me. Every time I have work done on my car I like to know as much as I can about what is wrong, how that part/system works usually, basically pick the mechanics' brain both for my understanding and to try to measure if I can trust them (yes, even if I myself might not know what they're talking about). Theodore was super nice, patient with my questions and with his answers, and this is huge in my opinion. I'm always looking out for a shop I can trust for work on my cars and now I know moving forward that I'll be using YourMechanic in the future, and they have Theodore to thank for that.


on October 01

Theodore is knowledgeable and professional. He arrived well before time and spent some time to understand problem. He was very friendly and was describing me what he was doing all way along. Hey, I should know about it since its my car, right? Liked that part very much. He also inspected the car and provided his feedback about different aspects. I spent no time telling about him to a couple of friends who are looking to get some work done on their cars.


on October 17

Theodore replaced my Front Brake Pads/Rotors and Coolant Thermostat. He was inquisitive about why the Thermostat needed to be replaced and what steps I had previously taken to arrive at this conclusion. I appreciated this level of attention, he was there to diagnose/fix my car and help me save myself from unnecessary repairs, rather than only do what the invoice/quote said. Turnaround was quick and service was polite. At the end of my service the Front Suspension was still making some noises, he offered to take a quick look again but didn't quite find the problem. He suggested making a second appointment with YourMechanic to look into the issue further. A few hours after he left I found that one of the heat-shields on the front brakes was rubbing on the rotor, something that he had checked. Nevertheless, I bent it back with a screw driver and the noise was gone. Despite this slight oversight, I would recommend Theodore for excellent/fast/punctual work.
