Whitney was very prompt and professional. He quickly diagnose the problem, provided expert recommendations and now my car is running better than ever. Working with him was the best experience ever.

Whitney seems to be very, very knowledgable about cars. He performed the BMW oil change effortlessly, took the time to explain things and when he noticed that my power steering fluid was low, he offered to even go get powersteering fluid. This man is one passionate mechanic who loves, loves his job.

In addition to the scheduled works, Whitney took the time listening my concern about oil leak and showed me valve gasket could be the cause. At the same time he found some loose bolts that may also attribute to the leaks. He tightened up the bolts and kindly recommend me continue to observe if situation remains without any hard pressure on me to replace the valve gasket. It's a great car service experience.


on April 16

Whitney was on time, professional, courteous and diligent in his work. While he was recharging my air conditioning system, he noticed a leak in transmission fluid which will be my next order with Yourmechanic.com.

Went above and beyond with service! Not only replaced my axles, but gave me advice on needed repairs for my old, high mileage car, gave me an oil top-up and removed some scratches I had on the side. 10/10 would recommend

Whitney was great and thorough with replacing my brakes. I wlll definitely recommend him. This is the second time he has worked on my car, so it says a lot about how I feel about him as a mechanic.


on March 22

Whitney is a true professional. Showed up to the appointment at least an hour before the actual scheduled time! Because of this, we were able to start work on my car earlier than expected (which is a good thing). There are still some other things that need to be done with my car, since I didn't want to spend a boat load of money in one sitting. I hope to work with Whitney again, and would highly recommend YourMechanic to my friends and family.


on March 07

He was very helpful in explaining the problems with my car. Very professional and easy to understand. I would highly recommend him to friends and family. Thank you again Whitney.


on February 26

Whitney was very professional. He arrived early and was very polite. Booked him for a pre purchase vehicle inspection. He was very thorough and was able to pinpoint to me the pros and cons of the car. I will be booking him for future services and would recommend him to others.


on February 25

Whitney arrived at my home even earlier than expected, which was great bc he got a jump-start on replacing the brake booster in my van. The quoted time of labor was exact, and I feel I received excellent service at an excellent rate. Local repair shops wanted 3-4x the cost for parts and labor. Granted I did supply my own parts. Regardless, I would never hesitate to use YourMechanic.com in the future. Whitney assisted even further by topping off my trans, power steering, oil, and coolant fluids. He also inflated all tires to recommended psi, checked brakes, shocks, etc... Awesome!!


on February 10

Whitney is awesome, He is truly an expert. Came on time, explained to me what was going to happen, went through it step by step. It took a little more time than expected, but I would consider it a PLUS, considering that he was more interested in getting it right than getting it done fast.


on February 07

Wow! And that really doesn't do Whitney justice, but use any word in the "exceptionally great" category and you're talking about Whitney's service. He has passion for his work and his knowledge/trouble shoot capabilities are apparent as he fishes for the root cause of the car trouble. I have been a salesman for 30+ years, so I can spot talent/patience and a willingness to do the right thing for the customer...Whitney exemplifies this mentality. He solved my car trouble by properly diagnosing the problem and had the tools and know how to take care of it. I'm back on the road right away because of Whitney. Select Whitney to do your service!

Whitney was late, which was partially due to a big construction site around the corner that just blocked access from 101. He was very professional and friendly and he answered all questions I had in relation to the car. He did an outstanding job and I would always book him again.


on February 03

I was satified with the way Whitney serviced my car.He was on time he quickly found the problem and fixed it.He was professional and respectful,I was very pleased.


on January 24

Whitney was on time and did an excellent job on my car. He even replaced my break light free of charge. From now on, whitney will be my personal mechanic now. His customer service is awesome. Never had that kind of service at the shop.


on April 16

This is my second appointment with Whitney, and he definitely takes care of my car very well.. I had to replace my brake pads, and not did he do it, but did a fifty point check, and filled up air, and smoothened the wheels, and now my car is running like a horse with great gas mileage. And all this for free. You never get such a honest and trustworthy mechanic for you

Whitney is the MAN!! Outstanding, honest mechanic who is the only person I trust to maintain/repair my vehicle. I was told by a chain tire store that my struts were leaking, so I booked Whitney to do the job. After inspecting my struts three times, he found no leaks and informed me that they didn't need replacing. His honesty saved me a ton of money and was very much appreciated. I can't speak highly enough about Yourmechanic.com and Whitney Ortiz. I'm a customer for life!


on January 18

Whitney is a professional and a good character. Not only that he fixed the problem with my vehicle but he also revealed to me the cause of the problem as well as recommendations on future maintenance and the basic skills of maintaining the requirements for the engine. The good thing about this type of service is that when you get a quote price for the problems to be fixed you don't have to pay to fix them all instead you can chose only what is necessary according to your budget. You can decide to have it fixed when you have the money to do so. Whitney briefed me on this regards and I'm very satisfied with the service provided.

(This review is related to my other one for my 60K mileage service) This is the 4th or 5th time I've brought my car and my wife's car to Whitney. It's hard to find an honest mechanic that really knows what he's doing. It's really convenient for me because Whitney just shows up at my office and works his skills on the car (he brings all his tools & is fully equipped!), thus I don't have to worry about coordinating with my wife or co-workers to drop me off at a repair shop, pick me up afterwards, hit traffic during rush hour and miss work. And of course, the price point is important: it's way cheaper than taking it to a shop. When my Eclipse hit the 60K+ mile mark, I needed service. Whitney inspected it and told me what needed to be changed, and also told me what wasn't necessary. Then he did all the work in at my office's parking lot. I highly recommend Whitney to all my friends and family.

Whitney gave me in depth descriptions of what my car needed and helped me resolve the issues I was most worried with. He is someone I would recommend!


on January 09

Whitney is a real professional MECHANIC. He arrived on time for the job, good communication and he's got all the experience and attitude for a professional mechanic. He completes his job within the time frame, he explains everything he did to my car and not only that he gave me tips and advice on how to look after my car. After his job he did a full inspection on the engine, tyres, brakes, lights, wipers etc. and also he can answer all my questions. He is a trustworthy person and he is a real friend. I will recommend Whitney Ortiz and YOURMECHANIC to all my relatives and friends.


on January 08

I am very satisfied with YourMechanic services. They are responsive, provide correct and cost effective solutions, punctual and performance centric. Just need to book appointment and all that served very efficiently at your doorstep.


on January 08

Whitney showed up a little early which was great. He did an exceptional and thorough diagnosis on my car including adding air to the tires. He was very polite and professional. I am glad that I found Whitney on YourMechanic.com and am confident that he will get the car running once again. I will recommend Whitney and this web site to all my friends and co-workers. The prices are as good if not better than any other mechanic. All this without a towing fee to get it to the local station.


on January 06

Whitney was outstanding in all regards. I have used many mechanics in 40 years of car ownership and he is tops. He was able to see that the EGR sensor, as well as the EGR, was malfunctioning and replaced both in the allotted time. It was obvious that Whitney has a great deal of experience with cars, including an older car like mine, and he was happy to explain the repairs and reasoning This saves me so much time and i learn about my car in the process. TI already recommended him to my sister!

Whitney went the extra mile to ensure that my car was safe and healthy! I had to spend 3 days working on my reticent car, and even changed defective light bulbs i couldn't change myself for free. He was great to chat with, explained what he was doing so that a lay person like me could get it, was obviously enjoying solving the problem that my car presented him. It is really rewarding to meet someone who loves his job so much and takes care of your vehicle as if it is his own. I am already recommending him to all my friends and colleagues. I hope i dont have too see him soon, but I am looking forward to either way.
