Professional, timely and quite knowledgeable. Knowing a trustworthy mechanic who knows what he's doing is as important as knowing a good doctor or dentist, etc. I found this in Chet. I will definitely use this service again and request him as my your mechanic mechanic once I order the part or decide my next course of action. I now have peace of mind about my Mercedes ml320. Thanks Chet!

I had a great experience with Your Mechanic and Chet – both were easy to work with and delivered on the promise of high quality car maintenance. Chet arrived on time, had all of the required tools, parts, and equipment to do the work, and was very knowledgeable. I was very impressed how this visit worked out and appreciate all of Chet’s hard work. He has earned my trust and is now my mechanic of choice for all my car needs!

Another great experience with Chet. My 2004 Ford Ranger has over 190,000 miles and he has helped me on over four occasions. Each time my truck runs better than the lasts. Best of all, he is knowledgeable, humble, and about customer service. Couldn't ask for more.

Did his job and was on time. we trust your mechanic and especially Chet as he has kept this old SUV running on more then one occasion. He is one of the best.

At this visit I only needed an oil and filter change which was done perfect, I did ask him many questions while he was working. He kindly answered all my questions which showed his professional knowledge as an outstanding mechanic.

Chet was terrific! He quickly diagnosed a couple of issues, obtained a necessary replacement part, and also performed scheduled maintenance.


on February 27

Understood the vehicle and was professional the entire time he worked on it. He diagnosed the problem and helped identify other problem areas that were hurting the cars performance. My car runs exceptionally well now. Next time I'm stuck with a problem and need a mechanic who understands German cars I will call Chet. My car: 1998 BMW 740i 120,000 miles on it. The work done by Chet: chased and diagnosed an electrical problem that was messing up the air fuel ratio causing the car to not operate.


on March 20

I would highly recommend Chet Storch the mechanic to everyone but will not recommend the lady customer service who booked my appointment because she did not know a lot about the type of oil synthetic for my Mercerdes and my conventional oil for the jetta. I did take the service because of Chet Storch professionalism and knowledge. Please send her to the training it was a disaster.


on April 27

I had no issues with the mechanic at all. He did his job just fine. I do think the service is falsely advertised though. The website makes it seem like it's extremely easy and hassle free but does not directly highlight that your car must be parked nearby an electrical outlet and it cannot be in the street. I understand why they have these rules but I think this might run into a bit of a problem in San Diego. Luckily I currently live at a place with a driveway but a couple months back I had to park along the street for my residence and my job only offers on street parking as well. I have plenty of friends and colleagues who are in this same position, so in order to even make this service work they would have to make prior arrangements. Once again I understand the reason's why they would have those rules but due to the higher price for this service and the inconvenience it caused I will not be going back.

Chet arrived a few minutes early! Being an Audi owner/enthusiast, I was very pleased to learn how knowledgeable he was on Audi vehicles and he took the time to explain his work and make recommendations for maintaining my Audi. Overall, this was a far better experience than the last independent 'Audi specialty' garage I used. I will definitely work with Chet Storch and YourMechanic again!

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!

Chet is very honest and fixed my problem with the door in the least expensive way possible. The price charged by local mechanic was $160, but Chet solved it in $105 which included a $70 inspection value in it. I will recommend Chet 100%. I saved more than 70% by engaging your mechanic. Good job - Thanks to Chet.

I had taken my car to firestone who over charges drastically. They also lost my tire lock. Lucky enough, Chet had the tool with him to take the keys off! So I got new sets for my tires for free because firestone lost mine and I got to have my brakes done! Thank you for your smart thinking! My brakes are working great!

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

Chet went above and beyond to repair my vehicle. I greatly appreciated his superior flexibility and patience while servicing my car and would highly recommend him to anyone.

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!

Chet showed up and did exactly the check that I expected to test for fuel pump failure...I didn't know how or where and would have done it had I known. Regardless, we came up with the same result--pump failed. He was ready to do the job, but made clear what the hardest part would be. Being the car is a Jag, it was clear that the design engineers had never had to do maintenance on one...he set aside the time and checked to see of a cheaper pump might be available. Point made. He was working to make his customer happy while still doing the work needed. Told me about a few things besides on work I could do myself vs. have done. My kind of mechanic. Let the pros do what the pros do, let us knuckle busters do what we can to feel proud of ourselves. Great guy.

Check is awesome. He has serviced all of my family vehicles. He is honest, dependable, and thoughtful in his diagnostics and handles repairs quickly and efficiently.

My car's problem is catastrophic at the A/C compressor, we originally hoped for less of a problem. There is no way around what is the needed repair. Chet worked with me and the parts provider and set up a new appointment to do the needed repair quickly. I am very happy with the way he treated me and handled the situation

Took my outback to a subaru dealership and was told my CJ boots were leaking and needed replaced. Chet inspected the CV boots and reported that it was the rack and pinion assy that was leaking and not the CV boot assy. He saved me $$$ and repaired what was needed. I just found my mechanic!

I am sorry I ever wasted time calling a tow truck. The service was very timely. The mechanic was professional and did not make excuses. My car could not be fixed on the first visit and Chet handled the situation. My car is up and running, I am happy.
