Great service, excellent prices, great mechanics,clean, polite.not always on time for appointment,but I find that totally understandable as the previous job can take more time than anticipated. They come to your home!!!!what luxury .They text or call if they are going to be late and they call when they are on their way. I have used them 4 times over the last couple of years and have always been very satisfied. And did I mention their prices, better than anyone’s !!! Integrity is their middle name

After two other mobile mechanics worked on my troubled Jeep Grande Cherokee with zero success but several expensive parts, I located Army Mechanics. Dave and Cameron very professionally and thoughtfully checked the prior work and moved forward adding a couple sensors and found the problem that the first mechanic could have repaired in 30 minutes. They are genuinely concerned about your budget. He proved this when he installed and then removed a sensor and said that I didn’t need it. His relationship with his suppler enabled him to return it! When have you ever been able to return an electrical part after installing it. He handled 380 cars in 2013! That number is amazing to me but understandable when you provide quality. I am involved in the Veteran community and can tell you that this Veteran is doing a great job and deserves everyone’s business.

I work 12 hour days, 6 days a week. When my battery died, and I fried it as well as the main fuse but trying to jump it myself and switching out the cables, Dave was able to come out to my work and change out the battery and fuse I’d blown. He was helpful, honest and I learned from my mistake. Plus He worked around my schedule wonderfully. I recommend Him and his crew completely. Will go to him for my brakes, oil changes, etc.

I am rarely moved to write a review, however these guys earned it. I am a woman who has had to navigate the rough terrain of “Mechanics-ville” over the years.
David not only listened to my concern over the phone, he explained his process and came out and diagnosed the issue. He sent me an estimate (which was $300 bucks less than my regular shop – I had long suspected that I was getting the “shaft” by the new guy hired to oversee the shop.) Another shop down the block from them pulled the same thing and Dave beat them by $200.
David’s guy was only 15 mins off scheduled arrive time but knew what he was doing. He was professional, knowledgeable and did not mind explaining to me what he was doing and why. He even refused to leave until the job was complete, tested and work space cleaned up (which explains why he may have been late getting to me-likely giving the same level of care to someone before me!) I was asked to take my “baby” for a spin and he found it needed to be tweaked a bit more and took care of it and even topped off fluids for no charge since I had some on hand in the garage.
Even after all that, the final bill was less than the estimate by another $75 bucks!
Needless to say, I will no longer have to shop around to see if I am being told the truth or being gouged!
I would recommend without hesitation that you give them a call if you want a fair deal on your car service. And YES….that means you ladies too ; )

AWESOME-AWESOME-AWESOME!!! Not only was the response to my last minute need for a mechanic quickly meant the customer service AND vehicle knowledge was WAY more then i ever expected!!! Service was ABOVE and BEYOND my expectations! EXCELLENT JOB!! I HIGHLY recommend Army Mechanics.

I have been down on my auto luck recently. When David responded to my voicemail and helped me so quickly with the problem that was keeping the car stranded it was great! My car needs a lot more help and I plan on having Army Mechanics to do the work. If you’re down on your luck they will help you with payments on the labor portion which is really helpful. Thank you Army Mechanics!!

So I’m going to go ahead and give these guys 5 stars. Although I had a set appointment at 8:30 this morning and didn’t receive a phone call until an hour later saying it was going to be moved to 10:30am, my mechanic did a decent job for a great price all while I was sitting on my couch sipping a cup of coffee finishing season 4 of Breaking Bad on Netflix. BEST SHOW OF ALL TIME. Seriously. If you had told me years ago when ‘Malcom in the Middle’ was still running that Bryan Cranston would’ve earned back-to-back Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, I might’ve laughed in your face. But guess who’s laughing now…
Anyways, Army Mechanics replaced all 4 of my brake pads and my 2 back rotors all for the price of $265. And that includes the $95 I paid for $125 Yelp! voucher. So in reality, I only paid $235. Thank you David, thank you Cameron.

David and Justin rocked it today and saved me big time! My Cadillac broke down at 7 AM this morning on the way to work and I need it fixed right away. I figured the problem was the Crankshaft Position Sensor and they verified that when they showed up. They are much cheaper than your everyday shop and WAY cheaper then the dealership. Think of it this way: $174 for them to come to my house, diagnose what was wrong, pull the sensor out (pretty difficult job), drive to parts store, pick up the part, come back and install the part. Not to bad at all I think. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks fellas!

Dave came out and looked at my Chrystler 300. He diagnosed the problem. And Made sure to check up on me periodically throughout the week. If u need your car fixed Army mechanics is the way to go..
