Chet is an amazing mechanic. Always a great experience.


on December 05

Chef came in a bit early (I like that!). He was very polite, and took the time to answer my questions. He was through and knowledgeable on his responses. He performed the job quickly. Everything was fine. I will definitely recommend him and will book him in the future.


on October 31

Tell it like it is! Answered my questions with upfront answers instead of whatI wanted to hear. Highly recommended to anyone that wants a job done right and satisfied after the service.


on September 19

My second time having Chet work on my vehicle and i will continue to book him for my automotive needs. Quick yet thorough and friendly. Pleasure doing business and will definitely be seeing Chet again.


on September 18

Chet was prompt, knowledgeable, and fast. He exceeds all my expectations in a mechanic. I would happily have him work on my vehicle again and will definitely recommend him to friends.

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!


on October 30

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!!

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 15

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!


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.

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!

I have received services for my Smart 2013 with Chet 2 times. This last was for a full front break services. I saved a lot compared to the dealer. He was very professional and worked super clean. I visited my office.

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 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

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.


on September 19

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!


on September 18

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

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.

Chet Storch was punctual, went over the entire, very professionable, good at explaining to me whatevet my questions were. I'd recommend Chet to anyone that's having car problems.

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!

Chet is awesome! He was professional, accommodating, and best of all, knowledgeable in his trade. He was very easy to work with, and easy to talk with—even taking the time to explain what he thought may be the cause to my car stalling. Having met me to work on the car at the parking lot of my office (there's no room to work on it where I live), I was even able to go grab dinner, feeling rest assured that Chet could handle the job. I made the right choice... Chet got my car running and informed me of what future work may need to be done to keep my car up to par. There's no doubt in my mind who I'll be calling to ask for the service when that time comes! THANK-YOU 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!!

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.

Excellant service arrived early, finished in a quick time frame and just very nice and helpful on explaning my truck of anything that in future to get fixed without asking.


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.

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 December 13

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
