Steve Hackney was more than an Angel. He is the first man that i have ever rated. Hands down very professional and helpful.He even came before the appointed time. He went to the extra mile to take care of services i never even requested for. God bless you sir. You really saved me today. God bless your hustle. Dude you helped jump start his infinity G35 coupe in El Cajon.

Timing belt broke in my old escort wagon. He arrived at noon and had it fixed by 3.

He's punctual, affordable, and all around honest mechanic.

They don't make them like this anymore

I found Steve online. He was the only guy out of 4 different tries on a Sunday that would answer his phone. My sons starter went out and he had school and work the following Monday. Steve got here in less than his estimated 30 minutes. He gave me a fair quote for the job. I supplied the new starter which I purchased from Auto Zone. After replacing the part, it did not work. He informed me I had purchased a faulty part. I went to O' Reilly per his suggestion and got a new starter before returning the other to Auto zone. He put it in and it started right up. He in effect had to replace the part twice, so I offered him more money than the original estimate he gave. He refused and just asked that we call him when we need a mechanic again. I definitely will. Friendly, timely, reliable and honest. Thank you Steve.

Have been using Steve's Mobile Auto Repair service for 10 years now. Fantastic service, always gets the job done right. Steve is fast , friendly and trustworthy.

Last week our truck would not start, called Steve and he came right out to our home. In minutes he found the problem. The issue solved and he saved me having to pay for a tow truck and as well as getting great service right at my home, so is very cost effective as well.

Steve was amazing! Diagnosed my problem, replaced my battery, and educated me on my car all within 45 mins. He drove about an hour to get to me during rush hour and did not charge me for it. Even saved me the sales tax! I received a top-of-the-line new battery which I can have replaced for free if ever need be. He even oiled it to prevent future corrosion. I highly recommend Steve for your car emergencies!

Steve arrived 45 min early.( Outstanding) Completed diagnostic and engine check promptly. Explained and pointed out problem, made solution recommendation. Purchased, installed and showed me both old and new parts. Inspected entire engine compartment with engine running. Made recommendations for future reference. Start to finish ! hour 15 minutes, cost very reasonable. Very professional, I was extremely pleased and should the need arise, will definitely call Steve again.

What can I say about Steve’s Mobil Repair but that it is the best thing since sliced bread!! Steve is efficient, knowledgeable, punctual and just down right good at his craft. I was in need of immediate assistance, and being mechanically challenged, I called Steve who promptly came to my aid and saved the day! Needless to say I now have him on speed dial in case I find myself in the same situation.

If Your trying to locate a responsible, car repair mechanic you found the right person. Steve is so reliable . I called with a bad water pump at 10:00 am he was there by 2pm with another water pump ready to install ... In 2012 the prior water pump was replaced also by Steve with a Lifetime Guarantee on the part. He came by, had another one with him to replace out checked belts....overlooked the motor compartment...topped of fluids....

I realized I have had Steve work on my cars for around 14 years ! I highly recommend his Superior Service, and Convenience for Myself .. Thank You Steve

I have a 32 Ford 3 window coupe with a 350 SB chevy engine. Called Steve for my electrical problem. Super fast response, very knowledgeable, and a fair price. The only person I trust with my baby. Thanks Steve. 11/24/15

First of all Steve was very kind on the phone and better in person with fast and very knowledgable work. Was afraid my car was going to be a costly problem but he came at me with a fair price and in no time he had my car running, he has my respect because honest mechanics are hard to come by would definitely recommend him to everyone looking for their car to be fixed. He's already on my speed dial list! Thanks again Steve.

We have been using Steve's Mobile Repair for over 25 years, and have always been happy with his service. We have 6 cars, so we've called him often over the years! He always figures out what is wrong with the car, picks up the parts, and gets the job done in the most convenient way. He will repair your car at your house or place of work. He is honest, fair, and a really nice guy! His prices are very reasonable and well worth every penny. My husband never worries about the price, because Steve is an honest guy. You'll never have to worry about dealership prices again! Thanks Steve!

I used to take my vehicles to the dealerships, but found that they kept my car for days and never seemed to be fixed to my satisfaction. When I found Steve's Mobile Repair several years ago, my cars are always repaired in one day and he keeps my vehicles running smoothly. Nice guy, fair price! I highly recommend this business to my friends and family.

After trying 2 other mobile mechanics and having a

negative experience I was fortunate to find Steve. He was on time, quickly diagnosed the problem with state of the art equipment which the other mobile service didn't have, and repaired my van. It was obvious that he had vast experience. Very reasonable. No need to call any other mobile service in East San Diego County. Patrick R.
