    Excellent service. Great convenience - they've come to both my home and my work. Makes it a lot easier than finding time to take my car to a shop. Very thorough. I like this company a lot.

  • Professional, Clean and Well-Spoken

    Elizabeth Banta

    My experience today with these guys was great. They tentatively diagnosed my problem over the phone and had the parts with them when they arrived. They quickly figured out the problem, fixed it and charged a really reasonable rate. The technicians were professional, clean and well-spoken. I'll definitely be using these guys again!

  • Did a Great Job!

    Justin Ockerman

    Jeremy came to my work and did a brake job for me. Very good prices and he does it at your work or home. Did a great job. I will be using him again!!

  • I'm going to trust this guy to look at my car as long as I live in Austin

    Cornelius X

    Simply put, I'm going to trust this guy to look at my car as long as I live in Austin. I didn't get a chance to meet him since I was at work, but he certainly seems to know his stuff based on the reviews and didn't gouge me, which is pretty standard in the biz. Thank you for the good vibrations, man.

  • Got My Car Back On The Road Quickly

    Jonathan Schaub

    Jeremy showed up earlier than expected, only sold me what I needed and got my car back on the road quickly.

  • Who Doesn't Love a Mobile Mechanic?

    Monick H

    Who doesn't love a Mobile Mechanic?! I've had 3 different cars serviced by Jeremy or one of his counter partners and have NEVER been disappointed. They are very efficient, very professional, and always available. You've gotta be crazy out of your mind to try anybody else!

  • Honesty And Integrity Has Been Restored

    Jason Stone

    I'm not a mechanic, but I used to be ASE certified, and worked in the car repair biz, so I know a thing or two, about cars.

    He correctly diagnosed the problem, and fixed it for 80 bucks.

    A car repair for only $80??? Really???

    True story.

Good To Know

Is it Time to Buy a New Car?

How do you know if it’s time to get a new car? I have heard this question from countless customers. The truth is that there isn’t a good answer for those people. The reasons for replacing a car can vary enough that every person has to make that decision for themselves. But the reason most people are asking us is because they feel like they are having to repair their car a lot and it may be time for a new one. For these people I do have a way to assess your current car and make a decision if you should move on to a new ride.

What I tell my customers is to take all your maintenance costs (including anything you pay for a loan) over the last year, add them up and divide them by 12. This will give you an average on what you are paying for your current car per month.

Then I tell the customers to go look at and price some cars that they like. My goal is to show the customer two things. The first is that their current car doesn’t cost that much to maintain as they thought and second that new cars cost much more than most people remember.

I have found that people begin to fall out of love with their cars because they get tired of the repair bills and it’s frustrating that the car breaks down on them. The shock of a large repair bill can be very vivid. If you have had two $600 repairs over the course of a year it is easy to think your car is falling apart. But the times your car works fine are not as vivid and you don’t think about the months that nothing goes wrong. By averaging out the repairs over a year you get a better sense of how much is costs you. If you have two $600 repairs over a year it means that your maintenance cost is $100 a month. I have watched people completely rethink how they view their car after averaging out the maintenance cost. It can make the annoyance of the car breaking down a little more bearable if you know that you aren’t spending a lot on the car.

It’s also important for someone in this situation to see whats out there. New cars are really impressive. The new features that are common on most cars these days may make it worth considering an upgrade. Cars have never been more fuel efficient or safe than they are now. There are new fully electric cars coming out and most manufactures are getting into the hybrid game. The problem is that they can be expensive. According to Nerdwallet the average cost for a monthly car payment was $523 in 2018. When someone is forced to look at the difference in monthly costs they tend to re-evaluate a new car purchase. But for those people that have maintenance cost that get even close to the cost of a new car it make complete sense to upgrade.

There are some people that fall out of love with their cars and no amount of cost calculation will re-ignite any joy for that car.

For those people I would suggest getting a new car, but for everyone else it’s worth averaging out the monthly costs and evaluating if a new car is right for them.
