11 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 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.


on November 20

Pete comes through once again with legendary customer service and expert level repair work! He goes above and beyond to ensure the job is done right the first time every time. Get your auto work done with convenience and confidence!!!

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.


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 great! Arrived on time & was very thorough when checking out the problems with my car. He was very honest and prioritized which work I should have done first. I will definitely book with him soon to begin the repairs.


on October 30

Pete arrived on time and did a great job servicing my car. He suggested a few additional things that could have been replaced in the future but did not try to upsell me or anything.The total cost of repairs ended up even slightly less than advertised. I highly recommend Pete and would definitely work with him in the future!

My experiance with Pete was great. He explained in detail what was wrong with my VW Bettle on the phone before he came out. Then when he got to my condo he again went over the service he was doing. personality and very easy to talk to. We had a situation where I was paying with cash plus credit card not knowing that cash isnt the form of payment they prefere.He took care of it in a timely manner. I would use Pete anytime and so should you . Great guy very knowleable.

Pete is very competent and kind man as well as great mechanic. He worked hard in many ways for my car. Thanks to his trouble again.


on October 17

Pete was knowledgeable with the work (timing belt for Odyssey 2001) I'm satisfied with the repairs on my van and definitely recommend Pete for your car repairs. Thanks for you honesty and a job well done!


on September 22

Pete was early for the appointment, calling me to ask if that was okay, thoroughly professional, knowledgeable, and helpful, and I could not have been happier with his demeanor and performance.


on November 26

Great service. Will definitely use again. Thanks for answering all my questions. 5 stars is not enough.


on November 07

Awesome mechanic! Stellar professional and knowledgeable. You want the best San Diego has to offer? Book Pete!!


on November 09

I was concerned about a squeaking noise coming from my brakes. Pete took the tires off and showed us step-by-step what he was looking for and found. Though he made some recommendations, he did not try to upsell us for more work. I really appreciate the time he took to check out the vehicle and provide suggestions for vehicle maintenance. Not many mechanics would tell you how to avoid calling a mechanic. Pete was awesome! I have already recommended him to my friends and family.


on August 22

Pete is a great guy; diagnosed my electrical issue pretty fast. He easily could have up-charged me for a bunch of additional service since I know nothing about cars and I'm sure he picked up on that. Pointed out a few other things worth looking into while he digging around under the hood but didn't pressure me into taking action on the spot, instead, stuck to just doing the inspection I asked for. Would definitely recommend and use Pete again.


on July 18

called ahead and showed up on time. friendly and professional, diagnosed and repaired car quickly. happy with the whole experience using this service. will use service and pete again for future needs.


on July 18

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.


on July 03

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 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.

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 11

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).

Pete was very professional and friendly. He answered all my questions I had to the fullest and more. He even was able to bump up my inpointment up and even showed up eairly. Pete is very good and I would recommend him to everyone.

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!!!!

Very impressed with yourmechanic.com from getting a quote,booking appointment to the mechanic that serviced my car! Pete was very professional,courteous and knowledgeable and experienced. He arrived 10 minutes before scheduled time which was awesome. He fixed the regulator on my driver's side rear door in about 30 minutes.ar the end of the job, I ended up paying less than I was quoted for. I would highly recommend Pete and will use him again in the future

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!


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.

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.


on April 30

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 April 05

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.
