Whitney was great. He had a creative solution to get my car off a hill when it wouldn't start. Would've wasted hundreds on a tow if it wasn't for him. Will be calling him again the next time my car is having problems.


on February 02

Whitney was very thorough; he did a through check of the car and recommended the most important things that needed to be fixed. He also scheduled a follow up to fix the car. He also did an extremely through job of fixing the car - you can tell there is not cutting corners with Whitney

Whitney is a very knowledgeable mechanic and a very nice person. I would definitely hire him again and will recommend him to my friends and family.

Whitney was so incredibly helpful I can't begin to explain. I booked Whitney for a pre purchase inspection and he looked at every square inch of the car, I inteded to buy and pointed out many issues with the car. If you are looking for someone knowledge, professional, and friendly. This is the guy to call. He ended up saving me thousands of dollars by giving his expert knowledge and experience on why not to purchase the vehicle I was set on buying. If you need the best mechanic this is the guy to go to... or should I say he comes to you... hands down thank you Whitney!

At the time of this writing, I'm in the middle of the car-buying process and have my eye on this used vehicle...located nearly 2 hours away. I needed a mechanic I can trust to give me the confidence to see the car in person. Whitney gave me that confidence. Although I've never met him, my conversations with him over the phone were great. His enthusiasm about the car was tangible. Many thanks!

2nd time around.... no issues. All good. The weather was very iffy for the Bay Area but thankfully the weather took a break from rain. Still praying that a followup text by the end of the week does not result in the check engine light coming back on.

Whitney was great.. The dude knew what he was doing! Honestly I was a bit scared doing such a big job outside of a shop.. He came in with all the gear he needed in his van.. And literally not a single drop of oil or fluid on the floor. Total professional.

Whitney was prompt, knowledgeable, efficient, friendly, and extremely helpful. Solved my problem quickly and provided a host of recommendations that were clearly designed to help me save money rather than help himself make money. I'd book him again in a heartbeat.

My car was stopping when I stop at red lights. Whitney diagnosed the problem correctly and with a quick fix my car is running very smooth again.

I set up my appointment online and received an email confirmation with Whitney's profile. On the appointed day, Whitney arrived early and contacted me via text and phone to let me know he had arrived. He shook my hand, looked me in the eye and went to work on repairing the driver's side door handle. Whitney's extensive experience came through as he carefully removed the door panel with great cognizance for the underlying plastic screws, connectors and washers on my old, but beloved, Toyota truck. He explained everything to me when I asked questions so I understood what he was doing and why. Whitney has a great knowledge of cars and uses all of his senses to comprehend my truck's overall health. Whitney is courteous, professional, educational and funny!

I was out of town but my wife let whitney work on the car. I got back last night and saw that the "Check oil" light came on again. not sure why given the oil was just changed a few days ago by Whitney


on December 20

Whitney was on time for the appointment. I needed my timing belt/water pump replaced as it was well overdue and I kept putting it off. I also had a wor.n passenger side cv axle that needed replacement. Whitney performed both services requested in a timely manner. He was nice to talk to also, and had a couple of really good stories about his 30+ years of working on cars. Whitney is a very honest, hard working mechanic. Highly recommended!

Awesome service, thank you so much! At the end of the service he told me of all of the other issues he noticed with my car that I didn't know about - radiator fan always on, thinning brake pads, possible engine oil leak...yup, pretty embarrassing. But Whitney was very professional about it, and even prepared me with a summary with all of this information - really appreciate that extra mile he went!


on December 03

Whitney was great. He was exceptionally prompt for a pre-purchase inspection I had scheduled for a car I was buying off of Craigslist. His inspection was thorough and he did a great job of explaining his evaluation so I felt comfortable with my decision. Because I was working with another party, his punctuality was hugely helpful and his examination exceeded my expectations.

Whitney was a breath of fresh air. Clear, concise and to the point, he helped me to understand my vehicle's requirements, and showed me a number of issues my previous mechanics had either misdiagnosed or not even noticed.

I appreciate his honesty about my car. I have an old car which I really like and hope that he will be able to help me in taking care of whatever problems that need to be fixed so that my car will last me a few more years.

Incredibly knowledgeable and generous with his time. He was willing to walk me through my problems in detail without missing a step.

Whitney patiently identifies the problem and explains it very clearly. His fix always made my car run smoother afterwards.

What a pleasant experience! Not only was Whitney able to come earlier than the scheduled appointment (which was wonderful for me since I had other errands to run later in the day), but he efficiently completed the battery replacement. He also did an inspection of the car, and let me know what issues would need to be dealt with most urgently. Whitney explained everything in a way that I could understand, and even helped with another problem on the spot free of charge! Plus, he's got a great sense of humor. (:

I think that Whitney is a great mechanic. He went beyond his job to find out what was wrong with my vehicle. Most mechanics just do as much as they are paid for. He really did a great job. I really appreciate it.

I like his attitude. He knows what he is doing, and he does it. He gets right to the problem. I have used him several times now and he is always nice, accommodating, and friendly.

Whitney was polite, friendly, and very approachable. He was a little late (about ten minutes), but I appreciated him calling ahead of time to let me know.

Right on time, quickly diagnosed the problem and found the issue. Explained what needed to be fixed and offered to order the part and fix it. Top notch guy.

Whitney did an outstanding job. He explained each and every procedure and also provided extra advise. He is very knowledgeable and has friendly attitude. I will happily recommend his service to my friends and YourMechanic customers.

Car wouldn't start this morning, on a Sunday. I knew towing would be expensive, so I set up an appointment with YourMechanic online and as luck would have it, got an appointment same day, but not until 7pm. At 5pm, my mechanic David called and asked if it would be ok to come early - of course!

He shows up when he said, was extremely polite, ran the diagnostic and said it was battery.  He then charged it enough to get me one more start so I can get it replaced in the morning. In addition, he told me about what it should cost so I don't overpay at the shop.

Between the $70 diagnostic, and what I'll pay for battery and installation, it'll still be cheaper than having it jumped by the shop and/or towed.
