Did not road test the brakes

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 on time, came over-prepared thankfully and had parts for which I incorrectly ordered. He got the job done quickly and cleanly.


on July 13

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.

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!!

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!

Chris has worked on my car(s) 10+ times. Never had an issue. Great communication, great documentation and easy to with. Thanks Chris!


on June 16

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 June 06

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.


on June 05

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!


on July 12

Very professional! Showed up early, finished in half the time, and provided multiple recommendations for future maintenance.

Chris is great! He arrived earlier than expected which was convenient for me. He walked me through the symptoms and confirmed my suspicion that the thermostat was faulty. Chris was thorough and explained everything he did. He is knowledgeable and professional and I would gladly work with him again.

Awesome guy. On time, efficient, professional. Recommend to anyone. He's helped me twice now, will definitely use him for a third time and more after that.


on August 08

Did a great job and was super convenient. No longer do I need to drive to a shop and wait for my service to be done. Would definitely recommend Chris to anyone!


on January 10

Excellent experience. Chris is the man, and made it happen. He also recommended a few other necessary repairs and showed me why they matter. I'll never use another mechanic. Thanks Chris!

Chris arrived early and was very knowledgeable and friendly. His expertise and advice kept me from making a mistake in buying a used cargo van. Would definitely recommend.

Chris was great on his visit! We had to start up a car that had been sitting unused for many months. He called and was able to come a little early, which was nice. He did the job quickly and we are good to go!

Toyota Avalon

Chris was all ready with parts he guessed my car might need, and got my car running again in about 20 min, without even needing a second appointment. Great experience! I felt so happy to not have to deal with getting my car to a dealership somehow. Definitely the best car repair experience I've had. So convenient and quick.


on April 03

Chris called and came way early to the appointment because he was in the area already in the area. He was very professional and got everything done in about an hour.


on August 03

Chris is a super trooper and deserves High Praise! Although he arrived late (2 hours) for the scheduled appointment due to unforeseen complications on a previous job, he was professional enough to stay late into the evening to finish the installation of my defective engine starter. Chris ~ Thank you!

BMW 330Ci
on July 22

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 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 arrived early and finished his work faster than expected. He is very friendly and helpful. I would definitely like to have him back when necessary.

Chris was great! He showed up early (again 😀). Was professional, showed and explained to me the job he did. He was great! He even offered advice to a couple of my coworkers. Thanks, Chris!
