Chet was able to diagnose the problem and provided great advice regarding questions I had about the maintenance of my vehicle, including pending repairs I had planned doing with another provider. Thank you very much for your help and instruction.


on July 12

Chet was very professional. He replaced the wheel bearing on my car within 40 mins. I would definitely request him again for any of my car mechanic needs.


on June 30

Chet worked fairly quick, and was very informational as he explained my combination set up for engine and why I was having vacuum issues with my timing.


on June 27

Very professional and did a fantastic and timely job. Extremely knowledgable and gave me advice on how to keep my truck lasting as long as possible.


on June 12

Arrived at the scheduled time. He knew what he was doing and got the job done in about 20min. Everyone else I talked to wanted to charge approx. 3 times the amount YourMechanic charged and offered to guarantees. Everything looks good and the car runs great. Thanks, Chet.

Best mechanic ! He was able to take out the shell of the spark plug that was stuck there! I highly recommend this mechanic! Very knowledgeable and professional man.

Chet did a great job. Firestone told me it would be a "very expensive job" and Chet figured out a way to fix it for a third of the price.

Subaru Baja
on May 20

Chet was very professional, knowledgeable and nice. He completed the work as requested and let us know about a couple of things that needed work. He also suggested new tires, even though he and the company don't sell tires. I feel very comfortable driving my Baja again.


on November 18

I was extremely pleased with Chet's performance. He listened to me and fixed my car. A great bonus is that he came to me while I was a work. He is very professional. Answered all my questions. He even had a recommendation for how to keep my car running smoothly. I highly recommend him. Thanks. I will be calling back in the future.


on November 19

Chet's a lifesaver. Every time my car has left me stranded, Chet has been able to get it back up and running in a very timely manner. Getting me back on the road much, much faster than having to tow it to a shop to be serviced. And a helluva' lot cheaper! Highly recommend. Thanks Chet.


on June 01

Great service - and communication. Chet conducted a pre-purchase inspection for me - for a car in a different location. He was prompt, thorough and detailed in his report. Definitely recommend!


on May 25

Showed up early. My problem was simple enough, but I have no doubt in if I need something more extensive. Chethe can handle it professionally and in a timely fashion. Coming from a family of mechanics, I can appreciate the value of years of expertise.

What a great experience ... took a shot on an at-home repair job(s), and I will absolutely do this for all my future diagnostic/repair needs (assuming I don't need anything big like a tranny/engine replacement). Chet was a great guy, knew his stuff, solved problems that popped up, and had all the necessary tools to get the jobs done. Most importantly, he didn't mind me watching/helping which was important for me as I like to learn stuff and get my hands dirty. I'm pretty confident that I would have paid a lot more for a fuel pump replacement and all-around brake job at a shop, plus not having to screw around with tow trucks and travel too/from shop (vehicle was dead). Also, you can save a lot of money if you shop around for your own parts but they just won't warrant them (understandably, but I felt like that was a low-risk chance to take). Funny thing, I hope I won't need Chet's services again, but you can be assured I would call on him when I do!

as usual Chet is an experienced personable person who tells you what is wrong with vehicle and fixes it right the first time. always nice to talk with.

Chet showed up on time and navigated the hard parking situation near my office without complaining. He inspected the car and explained to me, a complete car neophyte, what needs to be fixed and how things work. Definitely a 10 out of 5.

Chet was great... like a trooper, he worked in the dark with a head-light and a smile! He took the time to show me what the problems were and possible problems down the road to look out for. I appreciate that he was professional and knowledgeable while working without wasting time. My cars runs great now and I am so happy to not be nervous jumping into with a 91 year old mother in the seat next to me. Thank you! Linda G.

Chet was very knowledgeable in the problem with my car, unfortunately he didn't fix my car because the initial problem I thought it was, was actually different from the work needed, but Chet told me everything that needed to be done so I could reschedule my appointment

Dodge Charger

I am so happy I stumbled upon this service. I had been to three different auto shops (one was the dealer) and they couldn't find what was making the loud roar in my frontend. I rotated my tires, bought new tires and still had the noise. It only took Chet Storch a few minutes to listen to determine it was my front wheel bearings. He replaced it and I have fallen back in love with my car. Thank you so much for such professionalism and experience Chet. I have passed cards around my work and keep telling friends about the Yourmechanic.com. Thank you, Jodie

Exceptional experience, from beginning to end! Chet is a FIVE STAR mechanic! Extremely professional, and precise with his work! Looking forward to call him should we encounter any need for a mechanic! Two thumbs up for you Chet! -most satisfied customer!


on December 18

Chet has been servicing my car for a couple of times now. I have a problem with my "service engine soon" that keeps coming on. Chet has my car working much better now and he has come back to "fix the problem with the engine light on again and see what else it may require." He fixed some other things I needed, but the light remains on still. He said and assured me that if anything goes bad I can phone him. My runs a lot better, but these darn cars! Who knows! I know my car will require more things down the line after the holidays, so I am paying attention to the signs... Thank you!
