My experience with Chris Allshouse was very good. He was able to come early and did the repair in 90+ degree heat! I am a returning user and always recommend Your Mechanic to anyone needing car repairs.

He was on time (actually was able to come early after confirming it was OK with my schedule). Chris was very professional, knowledgeable, and did a thorough pre-purchase inspection. Very happy with the service!

Showed up early. Got the job done. The price was exactly what was quoted and was very reasonable. I would highly recommend and will continue to use as needed.

Did a great job accessing those poorly placed spark plugs on my chevy astro van and getting the job done right about on time to rush to his next appointment and save someone else's day!

Chris did such a great job fixing my car. He replaced all 4 brake pads which had completely worn out. The wheels were making a really bad squeaking sound when ever I drove. I was embarrassed just driving it for the sound it made but had no idea it was because the brakes were bad. After he replaced the brake pads the car brakes felt so much better and the noise was gone. He also replaced the oil and supplied a new oil plug. I don't know much about cars, and this is the first car I've owned so I really appreciate his honest expert opinion and ability to completely fix my car. Such a great guy. Thanks

Chris is the BEST! He really took the time to listen to me, and actually believed that the car was overheating, even though it wasn't when he was here. He found a blown fuse and fixed it! The car is working great now. Cant give 10 stars, but I would!

Always shows up when expected and really understands the issues and problems with the vehicles he works with. A true professional, I have recommended him a few times to friends and colleagues and will continue to do so. The most stand up and honest mechanics I know.

Thanks again Chris . Showed up on time and complete the job quickly and saved me money and time. This is the second time i have used chris . He is my mechanic

on October 03

Chris showed up early and completed the service. He obviously knew exactly hot to complete my repair on time as as billed, nosuprises! I have already recommended Your Mechanic to several of my clients.

on October 18

Chris is awesome, he spent the first 30 minutes fixing all the mistakes done by my last mechanic before he could start the job he came for.

on September 29

Ive used Chris to repair my truck twice so far, and he is a top notch/elite mechanic. Chris is punctual or early to his appointments and is honest and truthful with his assessments. I highly recommend Chris!

on September 27

Chris did another great job for me! I needed an oil change and tire rotation. Chris has always been punctual or early and is kind and professional. He explains everything well and I trust him with my vehicle and its needs. I'll continue to use him!

on September 24

He was early and ready to start. He libricated some rubber suspension parts for free. The struts where done in about half the time allotted. He told be my lower arm bushings are not as bad as the Goodyear mechanics made them out to be. He has great tools and which helps him get the job done at a smart pace. He waited for me to do a test drive and gave me some tips on my other car. He even gave a $10 coupon off the repair since I was a first time customer. I would recommend Chris to anyone needing professional work on their car done while waiting at home instead of a repair shop.

on September 25

This was probably one of the best if not the best pre-purchase inspection ever done, as well as, very candid. Chris took many pictures as well as performed an extensive analysis of the vehicle both professionally and personally. I feel very comfortable purchasing the vehicle and aware of the repairs it still requires. Also, I should mention that Chris somehow negotiated a 30 day warranty on the vehicle from the Dealership and they were willing to knock off more than 10%! Pretty impressive! Wish he lived in New York, he'd be my mechanic for life!!!

on October 18

I have found my mechanic! This is the third time Chris has worked on my car. Always on time, polite and a true professional.

on October 20

Great fast service, I walked to my office for a few minutes when I returned he was already finishing up the second tire.

on September 01

Purchasing a high mileage vehicle from out of state (I'm in Colorado, vehicle in California). The vehicle was checked thoroughly by Chris and he seemed very forthright with what was good and bad about the vehicle. It made my decision to come get the vehicle much less stressful! Thanks Chris and thanks Your Mechanic!

on September 13

This is my second appointment with Chris and he is excellent to deal with. Chris is very thorough and he made sure I understood exactly what was wrong with my vehicle. I will be booking the repairs with Chris. He is knowledgeable, thorough, professional and very trustworthy.

Second time I have had Chris out to work on my car and I am just as pleased as the first! He is professional, courteous and on time. He has become my go to mechanic!

on September 01

Chris was a joy to work with. He made everything so easy and followed up to make sure the job was done correctly. I've never experienced a mechanic so professional and willing to help.

on August 29

Chris was fast and professional. I needed a new regulator for my car window. He was able to come earlier than the scheduled appointment. He was able to complete the job very quickly. I had tape residue on my window and Chris advised this needs to be removed with a solvent to ensure this doesnt impact the new regulator, so I have removed the gunk! I posted window pics on yelp. The window is functioning properly, so far so good....I would definitely recommend Chris, he was great!

on September 25

Needed a new alternator for my suburban. Chris arrived early and completed the job quickly. Very professional. Will use him again

on September 15

Super experience with Chris. Very professional and friendly. He showed up a little early and in a few hours fixed what I thought should take a whole day. It blew me away how quickly he was done. I'm back on the road. The cost was less than the shop. I had taken it to one and gave up after they couldn't figure out what the problem was! I have a few more services that need to be performed on my Pathy and I will be scheduling them with Your Mechanic and Chris. A high recommendation for both!

This has been an incredible experience using MyMechanic with Chris Almshouse. Chris was on time - actually a bit earlier which worked for me and Chris. He was thoughtful enough to explain everything he was doing to my transmission and described what he found while working on my car. He seems to have a deeper understanding of auto mechanics that you generally won't find in some of the brand named auto repair garages in the area. I will definitely use MyMechanic for my other car and for my Mercedes as well recommend MyMechanic on my Facebook account. Thank you very much! - D.Chaney
