Vladimir was efficient, quick, and professional. Will definitely use again.


on February 12

He arrived on time. Vladimir is very personable and knowledgeable. He treated out starter and speed us why it was bad and shows us the comparison against the new one. He let us know what he was doing and topped off all fluids as well as all around visual inspection on our vehicle. We will definately be using him for any future work we need done.


on February 11

He wasn't able to make the first appointment time, but he let me know right away and showed up on time a hour later. He was helpful and knowledgeable on my Dodge Ram repair. I will recommend him on others services in the future

Vladimir was very helpful! First, he was on time! In fact he was 10 min. Early! I told him what issues I've been having with my car. He told me everything he would do and sent me a detailed quote of what other services I'll need to get in the future. I definitely saved money today. I'm glad I didn't have to pull away from work! Convenient and helpful!

Vladimir came through again for me! So impressed with his professionalism and expertise! From now on I will call Vladimir for any of my car repair needs. He is always extremely punctual and explains things a non mechanically inclined person can understand. I will highly recommend Vladimir to all my friends, family and coworkers! The convenience of not having to sit for hours waiting for an oil change or minor repairs makes the services convenient and reliable. Way to go Vladimir! Thank you!

Seems pretty knowledgeable about his stuff. Even saved me a hundred bucks because he didn't have to perform everything that he originally mentioned in the quote. Satisfied.

Vladimir is very knowledgeable with electrical systems and has been a great mechanic for my vehicle. He often goes above and beyond to help diagnose or fix any issues. Such a pleasure working with someone that knows what he's talking about and can help explain the issues or give advice on how to resolve your issues. His availability is top notch and he even makes the trek to where you are to help. Can't say enough about his workmanship and professionalism.

Vladimir was great. Wish I could say the same-day about whole experience. Yourmechanic.com canceled my first appointment and rescheduled for next day which at the 1 hour window called to say they would be another hour or so, so I canceled and r e-book ed a day later. Three hours after I r e-book ed appt. Yourmechanic.com called to see if I wanted to r e-book appt. I said I already had done so for 6:00. 2 mechanic showed - up for my appt and then discussed who would get to leave. It was clear neither one wanted to be there.

Vlad is a great guy. Honest and hard working. He did a great job replacing my wheel bearings. My car is much safer for the road. Thank You

Completely happy with Vladimir's service. He's knowledgeable, thorough, and conscientious. I recommend him without hesitation.


on December 07

I stumbled onto the Your Mechanic site this morning in a panic when my car was overheating. I set up an appointment for 11:00 but Vladimir called and said he could be here at 9:30 and he was on the dot. He diagnosed my problem immediately, very nice and professional and I enjoyed talking to him. Felt I could trust him which is more than I can say for most mechanics. Will keep his card and your site in favorites and definitely call for any additional needs. Vladimir rocks!

Vladimir was AMAZING. He showed up early for our scheduled appointment, saving us a little bit of time. I scheduled an appointment for a brake change, but I got much more than that. Initially he didn't have the right tool to take off one of the special lug nuts on my tire. He went out of his way not once, twice, but five times to many different stores to try and find the right tool to remove it. He managed to remove the bolts and do a brake change in a very short amount of time. That alone deserved a 10 in my opinion. What made him stand out was that he also went out of his way to do things that weren't requested. He managed to fix my bumper that was displaced, and he even bought me new lug nuts. He didn't sound frustrated or annoyed while he was at work, even after staying for over 2 more hours than expected because of the lug nut situation. On top of all of this, he still charged the rate that was discussed initially with no extra charges. This guy was great. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Showed up early even with the inconvenience of me switching address at last second. Did a great job on my Honda prelude and also helped with another job for no extra cost .

As a woman I have very little knowledge regarding car problems. What I do have is history with a local dealership and I never want to return to them The service dept is always rude, costly n inept. So refreshing to have a true service that got the answer to my problems n offered solutions. Thank you, Vladamir!

Toyota 4Runner

Vladimir arrived ahead of time, was very nice and helpful. He replaced the alternator of my 2007 4Runner right in my driveway, which was not a straightforward task being that he had to remove the underneath skidplate. He checked & verified that everything worked the way it did before it broke it down. I'm not familiar with the market rate, but the cost seemed very reasonable ($300). I would definitely use YourMechanic again, and highly recommend Vladimir.


on December 10

In the past I've worked on my own cars and even have electrical training. I am very pleased that everything Vladimir said was accurate within what I knew technically and even fit symptoms that I've experienced with my car but had not made the connection. One thing that stood out was that Vladimir is the first mechanic EVER to make sure my battery terminals and connections were protected with a battery protector sealant. I used to do that when I knew better with a previous car. Thankfully Vladimir knew what to do!


on August 24

Vlad was amazing. He was very thorough in checking the root cause of my car issue. Very knowledgeable and trustworthy. I am going to have him come back to do his recommended repairs! Definitely recommend him.


on November 04

Excellent experience. Very diligent & patient. Arrived sharp on time, thoroughly professional. I had an issue with the power windows & suspected the regulator assembly. Turned out the glass had slid off the slot that was attached to the regulator assembly. The glass was fixed to the slot & re fixed & we didn't have to use the new regulator assembly brought to site. Communication was spot on, attitude was excellent & was enthusiastic to answer all my questions. The post repair inspection was thorough. Highly impressed & very highly recommended!

Car was not starting. Had already replaced starter to no avail. Vladimir realized all that needed to be done was plug cable back in. Stayed an additional 25 minutes and took care of all kinds of small things, did a complete diagnostic of entire car. Quoted a seriously low price for other needed repairs. Amazing service from an honest, talented mechanic. Will recommend to everyone.

Help me with my car and tried to fix some of the issues and then told me I had more issues with the car then I realized but he was excellent at his job

Great job. Vladimir did a fantastic job. Professional, efficient, very knowledgeable. Will definitely call on him if anything else happens to my car. J.Adams in Sacramento.

Vladimir was excellent! He was on time, explained what the problem was, (apparently the previous mechanic from your Mechanic who did work on my car a few months ago (By the way, that mechanic was also a great mechanic), forgot to tighten my valve cover connection and that was the reason my engine light was on), and he recommeded that I get my brakes done, which I ordered the necessary brake items today so that I can have Vladimir come back and do another great job! Thank you Vladimir, and thank you Your Mechanic for great service! David S.

Vladimir went above and beyond what he had to do, he was scheduled to put an hour into the inspection, but I emailed him and told him that the car he would be inspecting was a salvage title and I was concerned it could be repaired with substandard parts. He assured me he would make sure he checked everything. He actually spent two hours on the job and because of his expertise I passed on the car and saved a ton of money because the car needed a complete front and rear brake job. Thanks Vladimir for a job well done.

I had other diagnoses made but they were incorrect!! He was able to pinpoint the reason and I will make sure that he is rebooked to perform all my repairs! Very, very pleased!!!
