Auto - Service would be the Search the List category for this - though that category includes shop-based service operations, so you would have to google or yellow-pages search for Mobile Mechanics in your area first, then cross-check those hits on Angies List for any ratings/reviews.


Not sure why you want a mobile mechanic - generally, with modern cars, unless he has a box van with full diagnostic computer setup on board, you are better off going to a shop which has all the diagnostic and repair equipment to make whatever repair is needed. Mobile mechanic might be fine for a dead battery, failed starter, lights or brake replacement etc - but for an unknown problem you might be wasting some money both because he might not be competent to diagnose it correctly, and because if the problem is major it may not be something that is suited to an at-home repair anyway.


If you end up going with a repair shop - assuming you do not have towing service on your car warranty or auto insurance or such, talk to them - many will pay the towing bill (especially if they have a tow truck or a regular deal with a towing company) if your repair is more than something like $250-500.
