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.

Knows his stuff and most importantly, he's honest. On time and no messing around.

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 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 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.

Pete was great. He was here early,got right to work.He replaced motor for a window on an F-150. It took 45 min from start to finish. He also let us know that the oil needed to be changed but otherwise,everything looked good. Had we know about the oil, he could have done that too. But,we didn't and he didn't have the necessary tools and supplies. I would definitely use this service again!

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.

Pete was exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly. He diagnosed the problem quickly and corrected the issue expeditiously. I would definitely recommend Pete to a friend or family member!

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.

Pete was very friendly and professional. He replaced our spark plugs and wires quickly and efficiently. Also he was great at explaining his process and answering any questions we had. Definitely a great mechanic!

on March 06

There are three major things I look for in a mechanic: efficiency, honesty, and inclusion. For my No Start Inspection, Pete used the available clues to jump straight into the likely source of the problem. Although he did take many factors into consideration, he didn't waste any time chasing parts that were already previously inspected or even unrelated. As a young woman, I also look for and appreciate mechanics that include me in the process. Pete took me seriously and took the time to explain his process on my own level of understanding. My experience with Pete was not just a repair service, but also a learning opportunity. Even though I trusted his opinion, he still showed me the faulty part and explained exactly why this part was the source of the problem. Rather than feeling frustrated or discouraged by the needed repair, Pete has given me the confidence and satisfaction that my car will be able to be put back in great condition.

on March 08

Pete is a professional mechanic and knows how to improvise to get the job done. I highly recommend him and would seek his help with any future repairs.

After another mechanic broke one of our spark plugs and couldn't finish the job, Pete came in and did it with no problem. We initially requested him due to his last job on our car and we gained trust, but we settled for another mechanic since Pete wasn't available at that time. We will definitely wait next time if we have to and have it done right the first time! We have nothing but respect and appreciation for him and his work! We will not have another job done by anyone else besides him while we are here! My husband & I truly recommend him to anyone!

on February 14

Pete was awesome! He was very thorough & done the job in no time! He took the time to answer all questions I had! Very easy going guy who truly knows what he's talking about! I even learned things that I didn't know before. I highly recommend him to anyone! Will be booking him again! This was my first time going through YourMechanic & it was great!

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 January 06

Pete Hambly did the repair of the front struts of my car. Even before meeting him, he communicated very well and helped make sure that everything was ready for the day of service. He arrived early, and upon finding out that we could not do the repair in my apartment garage, he helped find a new location to do the repair. Throughout the repair Pete was very friendly and approachable, and did a great job on the repair even though it was a complicated process. I felt like he was fully transparent about the work he was doing on the car. The cost was about half of what I would have paid at my dealership service and the service was far better. Thank you Pete and YourMechanic for your excellent service. I will not hesitate coming to you the next time I need my car serviced!

My mechanic, Pete Hambly, was punctual, professional, and expedient in replacing my timing belt and water pump. I would absolutely work with and recommend Pete in the future. Plus the quote was 35% less than at the dealership. Using YourMechanic was a great experience all around.

on January 02

What a delightful experience we had when Pete came and changed our oil for us. Pete was on time and very professional. He was friendly and answered all of our questions. We will use Pete again in the near future for other repairs. We highly recommend Pete to our family and friends.

Pete was great! I got an oil change and tire rotation on my BMW 328i. Pete arrived a few minutes early, worked fast, and was friendly. He even helped me out by providing me the service engine warning light codes since he needed to clear my oil change light anyways. I'd highly recommend Pete!

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.

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 October 28

Pete was extremely professional, polite, and very knowledgeable. He was able to take care of my brakes very quickly and efficiently. He also took time to explain a few things to me which added a personal touch.

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.

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 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).
