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.

Great Mechanic! Professional and very informative in the overall condition of my vehicle. I would definitely recommend him to others. Thank you.

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!

Chet is the absolute best. Can't say I've ever come across someone as knowledgeable as him. Absolutely the best!


on April 08

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.


on March 29

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.

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.

Ford Ranger

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

Infiniti G35
on October 02

My engine on a 2003 Infiniti G35 started overheating. Chet came out and diagnosed that the water pump and/or thermostat most likely were the culprits. For the inspection appointment as well as for the repair appointment Chet was on time (even early). He went more than beyond his usual duties to get the car running again. I had a hick-up right after the repair and overheating happened again. Called the warranty team and they first dispatched another mechanic (as Chet was supposed to be off this day) but I already had him texted pictures of the overheating. So he called his office and came in to check on the still overheating engine on his day off. He took care of the final piece. THANK YOU CHET!

Chet was thorough and did what he could. Waiting to hear from home office about getting needed parts to see if he can fix the problem. He seems very honest and helpful and I hope he can fix it.

Excellent service! Reliable, thorough, extremely convenient and saved me a ton of money! I feel confident that I will be able to continue running my old cor for much longer now. Thanks, Chet!


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.
