Chris

12 years of experience
San Diego, CA

I have been in the automotive field since 2005. I started working independent shops then moved on to Acura dealerships in 2006, while still working independently as a mobile technician. I then moved on to Honda working with the field engineering and special diagnostic tools departments. I also have worked at Toyota specializing in certified EPA & California Air Resource Board testing. We tested all Toyota, Lexus and Scion vehicles, and included competitors cars like Ford, Chevy, BMW, Mercedes and even Ferrari. I have never found a car I can't work on or fix. I aim to fix them correctly the first time, and always listen to my customers' concerns.

Great Customer Service and Great Service overall. Next service appointment was made before he left my home.


on June 25

He was really nice and listened to all my concerns. The thing is that he didn't show up on time and didnt have the part I needed to have changed even after cancelling a week prior with the first appointment right before he was supposed to be here. I felt like he was a good mechanic, just not really on top of things.

Chris was very professional and timely. I have been getting the run around about my car overheating and me being a female. Most mechanics don't think I know much about cars but I knew it was the waterpump and Chris helped me get down to the bottom of things. I'm totally loving this service. I don't have time for my car to sit in a mechanic shop for days. So thankful for this service. And would definitely be recommending it to all my family and friends.

Changed oil and filter on Tahoe and did an inspection. Found a leak and made recommendation to repair. Also checked brake pads. Very nice and knowledgeable. Already booked my 2nd service on a different vehicle with him. Super convenient as he comes to your home. Keeps you posted on his time of arrival and easy to track where he is as he starts driving to your appointment. Have already recommended to several friends.

Chris was punctual and was very thorough in the 50 point inspection as he listened well to my concerns. He did an excellent job explaining "codes." I was very comfortable and felt like I had an honest mechanic that I could trust. I highly recommend this affordable service in comparison to brick and mortar shops - coming to your home is the cherry on top!

Chris was very knowledgeable and friendly. Even though the task became a bit taunting at times, he acted professional throughout the process. When I asked technical questions concerning the work, Chris was happy to explain it to me. Because of the work and experience I had with Chris, I would recommend him and Your Mechanic to my associates.

Chris was very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. He does everything professionally and definitely one of the best mechanic to work on your car. I will definitely have him to work on my car in the future.

Chris was very knowledgeable and helped me figure out what I needed to fix right away (low oil) and let me know what fixes I would need to do soon and when I would need to do them. He was super friendly and was extremely thorough.

A real nice experience since this is the first time a mechanic shows up to my place instead of me gong to a shop, Chris was here on right on time and its neat that during the day I would get alerts in my cell phone I thought that was a plus having the reminders that Chris was on his way. I also liked that he answer some of the concern I had for the oil change he was about to perform. He was very prompt and again I received a final alert when he was done, I will most likely recommend YourMechanic to my friends and family.

He did great work. However he did reschedule me but I bet it was to deliver the same service he showed me.

Chris was great! I scheduled him for an oil change the same day. Chris was great at communicating his arrival and was even able to come earlier than scheduled. I will definitely book Chris again!

Thank you Chris for coming out two days in a row to work on my vehicle. Expert professional, got right to work and completed the job in less than an hour.

Fantastic mechanic. He arrived early and I was running behind but he patiently waited for me and changed out my brake pads on my Mercedes, explained other services he recommended and even explained and showed me my old brake pads. I will personally request him next time.

I have done the work that Chriss did many times. He was perfect. Careful, neat, thorough!! I was surprised by his attention to detail. On time!!

No problems or issues. Showed up early. Got right to it. Worked hard. Wrapped it up. Pleased with the result.

Chris arrived slightly late due to a previous appointment running over, but he kept me aware of his location through arrival. Otherwise, this was a very pleasant experience and Chris was excellent. Great customer service and extremely congenial. I wholeheartedly recommend him as a mechanic and look forward to having him do work in the future. Thanks Chris

Here is my initial email to YourMechanic: "Hello, I believe I have a dead/dying starter or a bad starter connection as my battery still holds a full charge and I hear a click-prolonged pause-click sequence when attempting to start the engine (as opposed to a rapid clicking sound). I was able to get the engine to turn over a few days ago by tapping on the starter with a wrench, but am unable to do so today. I also have an ignition interlock device installed and am unsure whether the device is causing or contributing to this issue." Ultimately, Chris replaced the starter however the car still wouldn't start. I had to call another mechanic the next day who was able to jump the battery and get it to start. I am unsure that the starter was even the issue in the first place - I am NOT a mechanic so I didn't know how to properly diagnose the problem, however Chris IS a mechanic who did not fully diagnose the problem and ultimately charged me $220 and left me with a car that still wouldn't start. He should have tried to jump, tried it with a new battery, etc. For these reasons I cannot recommend Chris to anyone and will strongly reconsider using YourMechanic in the future even though I've had positive experiences with other mechanics.
