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 has been a great help. He gave me an honest opinion and helped me with a variety of options. He understands when things may be too expensive, and was upfront about it. Definitely customer oriented! Thank you Chriss!


on December 07

Very knowledgeable and kind. He spent time going through the tests to make sure he identified the problem. Thanks, Chris!


on October 19

Chris showed up on time (actually, early) for the scheduled appointment. He was thorough in his inspection of the car I was looking to purchase. Upon completion of the inspection, Chris called me to provide his findings and answer any questions. This was in addition to providing a detailed report (along with photos) that I was able to access online. Great experience. Thanks, Chris!


on November 15

Chris was very helpful and friendly. He called before he completed the job and very carefully outlined the needed repairs. I was disappointed that the quote that was originally sent was literally 1/2 of the final quote - which was much more expensive. The quote was changed at the last minute when Chris arrived at my house. However, his careful attention and kindness won me over. Moreover, he helped me realize that I may not have needed as many repairs as I had been told by other mechanics. Thanks, Chris.


on October 12

Chris arrived early and was ready to go, quickly completed the work and explained everything to me so I knew what was going on, would highly recommend to others.

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 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 was awesome. He told me what needed immediate attention, and what could be put off for a little while. I needed a lot of work, and it definitely need to be prioritized. He was also fast in getting the work done.

Chris was great! Showed up early, did a thorough inspection to see what the problem was, and was easy to communicate with and schedule a follow up appointment to fix the other problems with our car that I hadn't been sure about. Highly recommend!

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 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!

Chris was on-time, friendly and very efficient! I don't like dealing with car issues and this made the experience so much nicer. He was quicker than the quoted estimated time, and was very helpful when answering the few questions I had.


on February 09

He was great! Explained everything in detail. Made sure he got a little history from me as well as what his notes actually said. Overall I was very pleased with my entire visit and follow-up.


on April 22

Chris is by far one of the best and honest mechanics I've ever dealt with. My car is older and rusted so the amount of time he spent to do the work and explain what he did was awesome. I highly recommend Chris and his services!!!


on January 31

Chris was STELLAR. I had made an appointment for 2 vehicles - and initially, it wasn't possible for a single mechanic to perform the service for both. However, when Chris showed up - he let me know that he'd be doing the service on both vehicles. Not sure if Chris or the team @ Your Mechanic had something to do with it- but THANKS! Chris was thorough, efficient and you could tell he was definitely an expert. All this - and a friendly, professional and timely guy as well. I'd hire Chris again - ANYTIME!


on August 20

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++++


on January 31

This is the first time I've used Your Mechanic - and I can definitely say that it's AMAZING!!! Chris met (actually exceeded) my expectations. He reached out to let me know when he was on his way - and he actually was a bit early. Communication was excellent -and so was the service I had completed. Chris was friendly, very knowledgable and professional (and this was after having to complete the service in the rain!!) Next time I'll have a garage space for you Chris!! Thanks for a great experience - I appreciate it.


on August 04

Chris confirmed with a text that he was available and would be arriving earlier than scheduled which after being kept waiting for 3 hours in a dealership the day before was a very positive first impression. Chis was friendly and professional. He explained the process and was done sooner than the estimated time scheduled—also a positive. Even though Chris worked in my driveway the area was left spotless, no packing, drips, or stains and there was no indication that mechanical work had occurred. The work was done at a cost 46% less than the dealer had quoted, in less time than the dealer claimed it would take, and at a time and place of my convenience. I would schedule future​ work with Chris should the need arise.

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.

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 arrived early and was ready to work. He completed the repair promptly, showed me the parts that were replaced and provided a few recommendations for the future.

Chris contacted me prior to the appointment and arrived as scheduled. Discussed service and explained detail what my request will accomplish. Performed service as requested. I was pleasantly surprised how professional and knowledgeable Chris is. Will definitely use this service again with Chris as the technician.

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!
