He replaced the vent part just fine, but when he left, my Check Engine light suddenly came on. Thanks for nothing. Should have stopped using this service last February when you told me, "You're a woman, you shouldn't be worrying about car stuff."

Chet was on time and did a great job.

Chet showed up a little late due to the rain, which was out of his control. He diagnosed my problem within a half hour and was a pleasure to work with. The amount quoted was what I was charged. My vehicle is a 1946 Willys CJ2A with 81,800 original miles. I appreciated his knowledge and advice.

I am happy with the service I received, and feel a lot more comfortable booking Chet again in the future. I am tired of taking my car to places where it's not fully serviced properly, and they want to overcharge me for things that should come with the maintenance I paid for. Chet also took the time to school me on a couple things about my car, and not to waste money.

told me about having my brake pads replaced soon and my front tires were wearing thin. I got my front tires replaced the next day and I am going to make my appoint to have my brake pads replaced in February. Very pleased with the service and the heads up on future maintenance repairs needed for my car.


on January 17

Chet was on time, and knew exactly what the problem was for my car. Unfortunately the part that was needed to fix my car had to be ordered so I will see Chet again in a couple of days. Overall I have to say I was pleased with the customer service

Chet was courteous and professional. He arrived on time and was able to complete the job in scheduled time. Overall experience with YourMechanic was great!


on January 11

As usual Chet was able to fund the problem in minutes and fix it within a short period of time. Chet is great and always has some great pointers for me on my 67 Mustang.

Professional and competence in automotive industry. Very good troubleshooter and patient to get the correct diagnosis and recommendations for future repairs..

Chet really knows his stuff! We thought we needed a new windshield wiper motor, but it turned out to be just a small adjustment needed. Chet fixed it right away and we were only charged the labor for the call, even though a part had been ordered. We've used Chet twice, now, and both times he was personable, efficient and a pleasure to work with. While he was here, he also answered some questions for us and gave us a quote for some other much needed repairs. He also made suggestions for things that we would do on our own.

Chet is awesome. Someone else came out a week ago and couldn't find the problem. Chet had it figured out in a few minutes. Had the car up and running in no time. It's a 67 Mustang so she require some TLC every once in a while. Chet will be the one I request every time. He has been out a few times and always does a great job and has great pointers.

We always ask for Chet when we have to service one of our cars. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and personable.

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.

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.

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.

Chet is cool. Doesn't say much, handles his business and rolls out. He is not the type of guy to bullshit scam you into unnecessary repairs. He recharged my A/C in no time. I'd have no problem using him again or recommending him to a friend. Thanks Chet!


on August 02

VERY knowledgeable, VERY friendly and VERY competent! My car had a CHECK ENGINE light and Chet diagnosed it correctly, ordered the correct part and replaced it promptly and then tested the vehicle and everything worked! A perfect service call!

I have an inspection done a couple days before Chet came and the mechanic told me I needed struts. So I had Chet come to install struts long and behold the struts wasn't my problem it was the driver side control arm Chet detected but cool guy will book again.....


on October 18

Chet was very helpful in explaining what was going on with my car. I had lots of questions and he answered and explained them all so that I could understand. Told me things that I could do to help maintain my car and was very informative on anything I was concerned about. I would highly recommend him!!

Fast, clean, knowledgeable. I had a problem with my Surge tank, and in 5 min he figured it out what's wrong and booked my fixing. The fixing was even faster. I will always book with Chet for problems with my car.

I have dealt with Chet twice now and I have been very satisfied with the service. He is very honest and has always completed an excellent job. I would highly recommend Chet to anyone that needs work done.

Chet was very helpful in explaining what I needed to know about the car I was inspecting before buying. He told me all the things that would require fixing and the things the seller wasn't telling me before buying the car. He helped me see that I could lower the price because of the a few small things than needed fixing. I would definitely recommend him!!

Chet was great! Very knowledgeable and pleasant. Did a thorough check and let us know exactly what was needed. Will definitely use this service again.
