13 years of experience
San Diego, CA

I've been an automotive technician for 13 years and am an ASE certified master technician. I graduated from the Ford program and worked at a Ford dealership as well as an independent shop. I approach every customer's car with the same attention to quality and detail that I would give my own car.

Pete is a very friendly and personable mechanic! He was very upfront and knowledgeable about all issues I described with the vehicle. I especially liked how at the end of the services he took the time to walk me through each area of the car that he worked with. He explained in-depth the reason(s) and cause(s) to the issues I was describing. I would highly recommend him for any future auto mechanic needs.

Again, it was a pleasant experience from start to finish. Pete came right on time and started working. I came back into my house to do my homework. In about 0.5 hour I received a telephone call that everything is ready. Pete is a professional mechanic whom I trust.

I got a quote (detailed and absolutely transparent) for the job on their web site - it was significantly less than a price suggested by other local shops, even for the used starters. Pete came on time, explained to me what he is going to do, showed me a new starter. After the job was done, in half an hour, he recommended me further services and gave a quote for them. Very professional and high quality job. Thank you, Pete!

on November 14

Pete made sure that I was prepared ahead of time for the service and I'm thankful for the quality work he performed the work on my car. The car is in much better condition and he finished his work in less than the time originally quoted. Pete was a true professional from start to finish and I will request to work with him again on future services!

Pete was here on time, very knowledgeable of my BMW, and made me feel comfortable and confident that he would make the repairs correctly. I also was very impressed with his honesty, and he exceeded my expectations. I am very pleased and will call on him (you) next time. I will definitely recommend his service to friends.

on June 26

Love Pete! He was on time, quick, and friendly. He fixed the problem in 5 minutes and gave me a free inspection since I just purchased the car. I will definitely ask for Pete!

Very convenient. You can enjoy staying home while the mechanic fixes your car at your doorstep. Pete Hambly from YourMechanic was on time as scheduled. He fixed my car's front CV axles just like any fancy-schmancy Service Center would do. The cost was much lower than the quotes I had got from the other mechanics. It was a great service with friendly but professional attitude. When he realized he needed an additional item, he didn't hesitate to drive back to his headquarters to fetch it, and came back to finish what he started instead of postponing. Besides, he didn't charge me for that extra item. I highly recommend YourMechanic and Pete Hambly.

Pete is very knowledgeable about cars (especially fords) works fast and gives a complete look over of potential problems your car may have and recommends services you need without pressuring you into doing or buying anything. would use Pete again AS WELL AS YOUR MECHANIC. it is a no brainer

on May 31

Pete is a top notch professional mechanic who displayed expertise knowledge and was courteous throughout the time that he worked on my car. I would highly recommend him to friends and family members.

on April 24

Pete arrived early and was courteous with a positive attitude. Easy to talk to and knowledgable as well. Would definitely ask for him again. Thank you.

Pete arrived30mins before scheduled time. He explained everything in great detail. Was very professional, literally has a mobile mechanic shop! I was very impressed with all the equipment he has at his disposal to be able to efficiently complete a job, big or small. I would highly recommend Pete, with all of expertise and knowledge.

on May 09

Pete called ahead of time letting us know upfront that there might be more damage and that he couldn't guarantee that this would fix my problem but I opted to try anyways. He showed up right on time and finished the job an hour early. And he did a great job. My car is by no means in perfect condition (my fault, not his) but at least he got it up and running for me and that's all I can ask for at the moment. I would definitely use YourMechanic and Pete again.

First time user! Heard squeaking noises and rubbing metal when pressing on my brakes. I took my car to a couple of auto repair shops and of course they gave me over the head prices to get new brake pads and rear rotors! Found YourMechanic online and had Pete come out to inspect my brakes. BEST AND FASTEST AUTO REPAIR SERVICE I'VE EVER HAD. He told me exactly what was wrong, gave me recommendations and came the next day 2 hours early to start the job. It was a 3 hour job and he finished in 1.5 hours. Also included an oil change, tire rotation and replaced one of my brake lights. Total amount came up 50% less than we got from other shops. Definitely recommend using YourMechanic! This will be my go to service when I need repairs! Request Pete as your mechanic! THANK YOU!

Pete arrived on time and greeted us with a smile. He was very friendly and got straight into diagnosing the problem. We went for a test drive to better demonstrate the problem with the car. He pulled out a few things during the inspection and was happy to discuss everything that he was doing. He gave us a number of good suggestions about the car, including general maintenance tips, and he was happy to answer any questions we had. We were able to learn more about our car during the inspection. Would definitely recommend Pete as a friendly, experienced, trustworthy and honest mechanic!

on January 21

Pete is very knowledgeable and explained his findings to me in details. This is my first time using YourMechanic and im glad my PPI was assigned to Pete whom brought me a very positive experience. I highly recommend him to anyone!

Pete knew his stuff, not only did he do a great job but gave me advice on, on a print out I received from Ron Baker that would had cost me 450.00 dollar of work they had recommended, Thank Pete for saving me money!!!!

Professional, friendly, courteous and competent! Pete is knowledgable by educating me on the problems my vehicle was experiencing. He troubleshot the task at hand and performed an additional thorough inspection of the engine and tire check. I will definitely use YourMechanic for all my automotive needs . Thank you for the convenience!

on December 04

This is my second time with Pete. I respect his genuineness and ability to explain the issue. I will call on him again if my car needs it, and recommend him to others who have not found a trusted mechanic. Thank you Pete.

Had Pete come down to investigate why I was getting exhaust smells through my vents. We found out that my exhaust manifold was cracked. He was very knowledgeable on why cracks happen and offered me an alternative method to wield the crack and save ~$900. He also spotted a busted trans mount (which might explain the vibrations).

on June 21

EZ peasy lemon squeezy. Again, no complaints here. Met with Pete previous week for inspection. Order part and he was in and out under 30 min. Three Cheers for Pete.

on June 20

Pete was great. He was here early and did a quick job with the diagnosis. Look over the vehicle for possible recommdations of future needs. Overall very satisfied with his service.

Tried this service for the first time. My problem - sometimes my auto's engine would race, the tachometer would be very high but my car would start slowing down, as if it had lost power, but after a short time the normal power and speed would be working right again. Very scary when you are driving on the highway at 70 mph. then this happens, and you seem to be coasting down to 30 mph. before your car starts to engage properly again. Pete Hambly to the rescue. I explained to Pete how my car was acting, and he surmised what the problem was very quickly before he even hooked up the code reader to my auto. After reading the code and doing a few tests with his instruments to verify his prognosis, he solved the problem. He looked at my part and found a faulty connector sensor. He temporally fixed the problem until the part I need is found. Pete was friendly, informative, professional, very knowledgeable, courteous, and proficient. He was clean cut, well mannered, and made you feel at ease. Pete gave me the impression he loved his work and it was more than just a job to be done. I am very happy I used "Your Mechanic" services and got Pete as my service technician. My cost was lower than if I had taken it somewhere else and more personable. Communicating directly with my technician instead of a clerk behind a desk, that writes up a work order for the mechanic to read, solved my problem faster and with more precision. I will definitely use Your Mechanics services in the future and definitely ask for Pete again. Thank You very much Pete for a pleasant stressless hour.

Pete not only install the parts needed to be replace but did extra time to check the bearing in the hub is good. Likewise he was able to correct the billing over the service rendered that was not right. He even checks engine oil and fluids for steeting and brakes. Because I highly appreciate his service, I made another service request for him to change the engine oil.

pete is friendly, on time or calls ahead if early is ok which is great. diagnosed car quickly, picked up new part and installed all in a timely manner. very happy with the service from booking to job completed and saved a lot time on my end will use again.

Pete called and was running ahead of schedule, which worked great for me. He was very quick with the job and was very honest about some repairs that may or may not need to be done in the future. I would highly recommend him as he is very experienced and honest.
