I've been an automotive technician since 2006. Over my career I've worked at Action Auto Care, as well as independent shops, and I have experience diagnosing and repairing a wide variety of Domestic, Asian, and European vehicles.

Chris Young helped me with my brake light switch, and did More than what he needed to! He double checked to make sure that my car was ready to go and also taught me what i need to do and preventative care. I come from a family of car gurus and dislike going to car shops. Now that i have moved away from them this is now my go-to!! Thank you!

Chris was very professional and on time. He figured out the problem almost immediately as to why it would not start. Replaced one the brakes in the front and was done under the time allotted. I will definitely use Chris again when the need arises.

Quick, simple and easy to work with. Suggested I might need rotors when changing out my brakes but upon inspection, they weren't needed. Car runs great. Would recommend to others!

Chris texted me that morning and was able to come 2 hours earlier than my scheduled appointment which worked out great. He was quick and efficient, the job was done in less than an hour. I love the fact that I can be in the comfort of my own home instead of stuck sitting in some shop. Will definitely use this service again!

He is absolutely amazing! He notice that it was a rear brake completely missing and destruction of the rotor whereas before I was told it was a front tire problem. He fixed it in a timely manner and was really friendly and helpful. If there were more stars I would definitely give them to him. Thank you once again for the superb job!!!

2nd time having Chris work on my Chrysler. Did an awesome job, looked into my problems for me and got the job quick which costed me less in the end. Test drove it after everything, and no problems at all!


on October 05

Even though we didn't have to do the job I had thought, he was nice, and did what he could while he was here. I will call him again when I need something else.

I've come back to yourMechanic.com. Because Chris does excellent work. & goes above & beyond to call ahead when he has finished another job earlier to make your appt time less of a wait to get back on the road. & as a Lyft & uber driver every hour counts. Thanks again Chris.

Chris showed up early to the dealership to do a pre purchase inspection and I ended up buying it. He gave me a full quote of everything that needs done so I can easily book it next time and it helped me negotiate price down. Thanks Chris!


on October 03

Chris, showed up early for my appointment and was extremely professional. I appreciated his promptness of arriving on time and getting straight to work. It was definitely a pleasant experience trying out yourmechanic.com I will definitely be using the service for any issues I have with my vehicle. Thanks for the help Chris !

Chriss texted that he is available earlier than my appointment time. I was going to be out, so I left a car on the driveway and Chriss was done with the requested alternator replacement by the time I came back. He took time to look at a couple of other things that I asked him to look at (this is an old car) , and answered my questions in details. (Not trying to sell any additional service, quite opposite, he said that one of these things is not a problem, confirming my previous mechanic's opinion, and the other should be a part of warranted repair previously done elsewhere). Nice, quick, friendly. Recommend!


on October 04

Chris was friendly, professional, and fast. He kept in contact with me through text and ended up coming earlier than I expected to fix my car (letting me know, of course)! Even though it wasn't at the place I said I'd be at my appointment, he drove to where I was and took care of the issue. He also brought additional parts to be safe. I would recommend him in a heartbeat! Thanks Chris!


on October 07

the night before my appointment, he texted to see if we could move it to an earlier spot. i had to decline coz i had to be at an appointment elsewhere and i wanted to be there at least before he finished. he arrived on time and started on my car, right where it was parked. when i arrived, i asked him if i could watch and he was ok with it. i had a bunch of questions and he was nice enough to answer them all. i thought he would decline so he could work with all his focus on the job but he let me stay and watch and learn. there was a moment when none of the tools he brought fit the oil filter bowl, the computer did not specify what size it was, so he had to do a quick run to autozone to get the right sized socket and he was back in a flash. i did however distract him enough to forget to check my tire pressure lol so that one is on me. i'd definitely recommend chris and his expertise and i'd book him again for my future car maintenance needs.

Chris is awesome, he is very honest and better than fair prices and a hell of a hoot to be around. Will be asking for Chris again, you have a new happy customer thanks to Chris

Chris was great! This is the 3rd time I book him. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, and gave me useful advice on what I should do with my car to keep it running smoothly without having to fork out the big $$. This is definitely a nice change of pace from your regular auto-mechanic shop. Would 100% hire his services again and recommend to friends and family.

He was awesome he ran the diagnostics and helped me figure out the problem in a matter of minutes it's truly amazing being able to have a mechanic come to you so even if your car won't start you can really count on this guy.

Chris was very professional, efficient and pleasant. He answered all my questions and did a thorough inspection of my vehicle, pointing out things to watch out for, but not pushing to up sell me on anything. Overall, a great experience, and I will definitely use YourMechanic going forward, and ask for Chris again and recommend to friends and co-workers.

I had Chris come to my home today to replace the valve cover gaskets on my 2003 Saab 9.5, Chris was on time and on budget and the car was repaired in a very professional manor. Chris is highly skilled and very thorough and did a great job. Chris will be my mechanic whenever I have a need in the future and I am glad I was able to have Chris work on my car as he did a fantastic job and and at a very reasonable price. I would also say that this was the best experience I have ever had with a mechanic and services and the most reasonable costs for a job well done. I wish Chris all the best and success with his business. Kind Regards, Don Gisler

Chris went above and beyond the call of duty when working on my car. He performed an additional flush due to the amount of rust and advised me of other potential issues with the car.

It was satisfying knowing that he had knowledge of my car and how it functions. These mercedes cars are ran by senors these days i guess having a good OBD Scanner to read codes and the knowledge of looking things up in the internet really help. But yes i was satisfied
