I've been an automotive technician since 2005 and am ASE Master Certified. I'm a graduate of WyoTech and have worked at Chrysler and Toyota dealerships, as well as independent shops. I love helping customers get their vehicles back into great condition.
He got to the point and did a very efficient no bones tool ready professional job, this review is coming from an ex street mechanic. I would use him again anytime
Chris made the extremely arduous trek into the heart of the city, where our car is parked, and patiently dealt with everything that entails -- horrible traffic, annoyed pedestrians, impatient garage attendants...but, he worked through it all, quickly figured out the issue, and fixed what needed to be fixed. All in less than an hour.
Overall good experience. Price was a bit higher due to check engine light. Should reduce diagnostic prices a bit since service was performed.
Do yourself a favor next time you need a mechanic. Make sure to hire Chris. Best car repair experience I've ever had. Not to mention the astounding savings working with " Your Mechanic". My front brakes, new rotors and replacement of the right front lower control bar cost me $600. The repair facility three blocks away quoted $869. The repair facility 10 blocks away quoted $1000.

Chris arrived as scheduled and completed the job with expertise. I also like the fact he left work details that need attention for future work. Great service and price!!!!!!!!
Chris was prompt - he's close to where I live. He knew what he was doing and assured me he had enough experience with pinion seal replacements - mostly Chrysler. Basic job is similar on most rwd vehicles anyway. He was prepared, ready and got done quickly and systematically. Also had friendly dogs with him, a very healthy Pit and maybe a Yorkie. I will be sure to request should I need more services in the future. The dogs can come, too.
Chris is very good, experienced, and knowledgeable about the mechanic's of autos. Very helpful and is efficient, saw other possible potential problems with the car. Also, cute dog mascot in his car.
This is my 3 service with Chris. Really feel fortunate that he was the first mechanic I had with your company, and have requested for him since. Not sure if I would have the same confidence in another auto mechanic, not just with your company, but any other. His knowledge and skill is above most that I've worked with.
Chris showed up on time and tested the faulty starter to make sure that was the the issue. It was and he described why they go bad in Rovers. He was quick and he made sure that the car started once he was finished. Chris is highly professional, courteous and knowledgeable. Exactly what you're looking for in a mechanic. I highly recommend him!
The kind of mechanic you want: knowledgeable, honest, and affordable. He figured out a complex problem with my Mercedes' advanced power-steering system and helped track down all of the related issues. Two appointments with my Mercedes auto shop couldn't figure that out, let alone do it for anywhere near Chris' price.
Chris probably saved me thousands in repair bills. If Chris hadn't found all of these computer error codes in his inspection, I may have ended up buying the car and sunk another $5k into fixing all of these electrical issues.
Chris was very professional! Made me feel at ease, since I know nothing about cars. The job was completed in a timely matter. I'm very satisfied with the job he did. Thank you!!
Arrived on-time, completed the job fairly quickly. Explained what was done and what needs to be done in the future. I would definitely recommend Chris' service and would definitely use it again.
I booked a mechanic for a pre-purchase inspection. Chris arrived early, was very professional, and thoroughly explained all of the problem areas on the car. Many thanks!
For the better part of a month, I’d been panicking over my 2002 BMW 330ci, which had basically lost all power, so it was just sitting in my garage. Towing it to a shop for diagnostic testing was an option, but then I’d be stuck in the event projected repair costs exceeded the car’s worth (or even half of its worth). Being stuck sucks, so I decided on exercising another option. After reading a bunch of reviews and doing some research on Your Mechanic and their team of mechanics, I decided on giving them a try. I am so glad that I did. What an outfit! Great concept, great execution ... The people in the office are wonderful at keeping you informed, answering questions, from beginning to end. Their online presence and transparency dismisses any weirdness customers may feel about the whole inviting strangers over thing, too. And Your Mechanic delivers, by connecting top-tier mechanics with people who need their help. That’s exactly what Your Mechanic did for me, by introducing me to Chris M. He came to my rescue. What a pleasant polite young gentleman, Chris is. And Boy oh boy!, does he know his stuff! With patient professional confidence and calm, Chris ably diagnosed my car’s problems, tested the hypothesis, and retested too. The problems weren’t easy to find or common whatsoever. Thanks to diligence and expertise, however, Chris M. identified the issues. It wasn’t piston rings or the catalytic converter, as I’d feared, but a faulty engine coil. Chris explained the issue, actually showed me what was going on in the engine compartment, provided me with a detailed quote that I knew was fair and reasonable (talk about a mind Blow!), and then he even offered to come back and do the work, if I wanted. Heck Yes! Chris came back the very same day to render the fixes, all from inside of my garage. No tow trucks, no queue of customers waiting, no worries about surprisingly huge repair bills, and no concern about strangers coming over, or anxiety about non-OEM parts. I have a brand new engine coil, new spark plugs, a clean gas line, clean oil – and a renewed confidence in my automobile’s reliability. Presto! My car runs like a charm. Chris M. earned my confidence, my trust, and my respect – and that’s an amazing feat. Having a qualified, knowledgeable professional come to my home, diagnose my car’s troubles, and even render repairs on site, using manufacturer-recommended parts, sounds like a luxury I couldn’t afford. Turns out I was wrong. No doubt, from here on out, I will be recommending Chris M. and Your Mechanic to anyone and everyone.
Chris is awesome showed up 35 mins. early, Chris was very professional and friendly. He replaced the alternator in my car and got every thing done in about an hour and did a great job.
Needed a new battery for my car. Chris was on time and very professional. He installed my new battery, did a sweep inspection of my car and recommend the next service to be perform.
Chris replaced the valve cover gasket on my 4Runner. He did an amazing and thorough job, making sure to clean the clean the throttle body, intake manifold, and all other components while they were off the vehicle. He went above and beyond. Way better service than I would have gotten at a shop!
Chris discovered that the wires on my starter motor had been reversed by another mechanic the previous day. He corrected the problem and I was on the road again. Thanks, Chris!
This was simply a fantastic experience, Chris showed up and took care of everything, everything was transparent and Chris explained what he was doing. Highly recommendable - While Chris was working on my car I was working upstairs, no wait time, no downtime. Just perfect
Chris showed up early and performed a thorough evaluation of my car. He expertly diagnosed the issue and made some service recommendations. The convenience of having Chris come to my house saved me so much time (by not having to tow my car to a garage) and money, since YourMechanic is a much more reasonable diagnostic cost than going to a bricks and mortar mechanic. Thank you Chris!
On time (early even), quick, efficient, friendly. Pointed out other areas of need aside from the oil change. Would definitely recommend Chris for more services.

Chris is great. He told me that I had to change the front tires instead of rotating them, and gave me tips to buy them as cheap as possible. Thank you!
Chris was so amazing!! Very friendly and on time which was great. He was also very quick at getting the oil change done. I would definitely book with him again. A++++
Chirs is awesome, he provide me more than the service but also other issues on the car. He is honest and very fast. I would definitely recommend working with Chris
I was so impressed with my first interaction with YourMechanic. The interface is easy and intuitive to use. When I had a question, the customer service representative was direct, helpful, and positive. Chris was an absolute lifesaver. I felt taken care of and never worried about being overcharged; the pricing was transparent and honest. As a new car owner who knows little about cars, I loved this service and would strongly recommend the website and Chris to anyone else.

Chris was great! He arrived promptly at appt time & had texted to let me know he was on the way. During the tune-up services, he pointed out and explained a couple potential issues that i should be aware of, so I can take care of them before it's a real problem. Very polite, quick & clean ...not to mention that my old (18 yr) car is driving great.

Chris replaced the starter and power steering fluid in my car and I actually notice the difference when steering. He also did a great job fast. Moreover, he recommended tirerack which is great if you have to change your tires and is cheaper than going directly to a tire shop.
Thanks for the inspection Chris. Thorough job, on-time and easy to work with. Car has had zero issues that weren't identified after putting on about 1,500 miles.
