About Stephen

I have worked on cars professionally for 5 years and as a hobbyist for 5 years before that. There's nothing beyond my skill level including custom fabrication. Where I can save you the most money is on the bread and butter jobs of local shops(brakes, clutches, struts) They will charge 1 hour per corner on a brake job, when their mechanic can get it done in 15 minutes a corner. If you get a quote from a local shop, then come to me, you'll be surprised what I can offer while still supporting myself. more

About this service

Don't take your car to a mechanic for basic maintenance. Bring it to me and save lots, while receiving transparent service. I have been working on cars for 10 years, 5 of them professionally. Most jobs can easily be achieved for half of what Brand X would charge. See hypotheticals with a 2012 Kia Sorento listed below. You can bring me the parts or I can get them from industry suppliers. The mechanic world has long been shady, and I want to demystify it and help you understand the costs of keeping your car running right, without overspending. I am happy to develop a long term relationship with a few families(or individuals) to take care of their cars. Please tell your friends, but this is not my day job, so at some point I will have to limit myself in taking new clients.

  1. Brake Pads Replacement - Parts and Labor : $200.00

    On a hypothetical 2012 Kia Sorento, medium-high grade brake pads can be purchased for just under $100. I can do the labor for an additional $100 and go home happy. A shop would charge in the $400 range for this job.

  2. Brake Pads and Rotors Replacement - Parts and Labor : $500.00

    The parts for this job(depending on grade) are in the $370 range, and the labor should be under 2 hours. I called a local chain brand, and they quoted $995 for this job, citing 4 hours of labor and $600ish in parts.

  3. Struts Replacement 4 Corner - Parts and Labor : $400.00

    This varies depending on how many of the essential and optional components you replace, but a shop may charge 1000-2000 for this. Again, the same or higher quality job can be done by me(or many people I know) for half or less.
