Stefan was very thorough in explaining everything that he would be doing. He finished the job pretty late. And he was nice enough to come back once he had left, due to a small transmission cooler line leak. I'm thankful for his help with this.. Apparently the leak was caused by unrelated issues. He fixed it.. Thank you Stefan.

Great. Thorough as always. I first used Stefan when I owned a Land Rover. My new car is a Mini, and yet Stefan was just as knowledgeable about both cars. He's good at explaining what he's doing and giving you the lowdown on any potential issues your car may have. My mom was here today during the service. She was so impressed, we set her up online and got her booked for an oil change and tire rotation before he left. Thanks Stefan!

This guy was amazing!!! The YourMechanic site messed up our address (we needed to change locations at the last minute but we were not able to according to the site but the location was changed to the new site and we didn't know it until it was too late and due to the fact that our car could only be driven so many miles due to the "cooling off" period we could not drive to the other location) and Stefan went over the Antioch bridge twice to come to inspect our car which was desperately necessary and needed that day. He came and did his job and unfortunately I was not there to see the whole thing but my husband was and my husband is lost without me and did not tip this awesome young man. The next time we need work done I will be calling him and Stefan we owe you $20 extra buddy, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!! I'm sorry my husband didn't tip you. -The Rude and Ungrateful, Smiths

Stefan is honest, reliable, punctual, knowledgeable, and competent. It can't get better than that! My car is a pain to work with but Stefan never gets rattled. I hope you guys pay him well!

Stefan was very thorough when he inspected my car. He gave me some advise after I wrecked my car. He showed me any problems he could see. I sure appreciated it. I'm sure I'll see him again. I probably will be buying another car and have him check it out when I do. Good guy.


on August 11

I used Stefan for a second time but this time he worked on my new car. He came out to my place of employment to rotate my tires and change my oil and he did an excellent job. I'm not going anywhere else from now on.


on November 23

Stefan knows his engines and does not assume anything. He went by the process of elimination to determine root cause why my vehicle would not start. Eventually it did by relying on skills. At first I was a bit hesitant to avail of Your mechanics services since it is a relatively new concept to repair and maintain vehicles but now I am more open to it. Will definitely recommend to friends.


on September 26

The whole thing was great. I had them go to a dealer and perform a pre-purchase inspection on a vehicle I was considering buying. I wasn't at the dealer when the inspection was performed but when Stefan was finished he called me and we talked about the vehicle and then he posted the inspection results on-line. This is the first time I've used Your Mechanic and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.


on September 19

A very personable young man, but more importantly he knew the problem and fixed it without any hesitation. If all your mechanics are like Stefan you will have a great company.

Stefan was thorough and professional. He explained his work on my car and told me things to look for in regards to preventative maintenance. I am very pleased with his work.

Stefan was very polite and friendly. He seemed to care about keeping me happy while getting the job done, instead of just fixing the problem. He kept me informed, and cared about my opinion. Overall I was very happy with his performance.


on March 19

I was very satified wth Stefan's work. He got to work right away and though it took a lot longer than the estimated time, I suspect it was due mostly to the difficult access conditions to the part. After the work was done, I was able to test the car today and found the problem was completely cured. The car no longer stalls at startup and is much easier to drive. I'd use this service agian - it is very convenient to have someone service my car at home. No lousy waiting area with very poor magazines for entertainment.


on March 16

Stefan helped change my oil and filter and performed an inspection. He arrived right on time and did a great job. He is very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. Using YourMechanic saved me more money rather then going to any other shop. Plus I didn't have to wait around at shop to have the work done. I was at home. That is so much better. I had a great experience.

I was so impressed! Stefan was extremely thorough, knowledgeable and took his time to make sure everything was done properly. I will definitely use him again for any work in my Tundra.

  • Replace Coolant Temp Sens...

Volkswagen Jetta
on April 19

Stefan arrived on time and fixed the problem very quickly. I have no more excuses to procrastinate repairs because my last 2 excuses have been eliminated that being time and money. The price was very affordable . I had already known what needed to be replaced because I had the code read by my neighbor but I also had a coupon at a local mechanic shop to get a free reading and estimate. I left my car for the day at this other mechanic shop only to receive the news that in order for them to find the problem they needed to charge me another $200 for "diagnostic work". I left there without an estimate but the next day my co-worker told me about yourmechanic.com so I called. I got a written estimate in a few minutes of $102. to replace the temp sensor. I scheduled the appointment and the next week the problem was fixed. I was charged $102 and never had to leave my house. What's not to like about that !


on August 24

Stefan was on time, friendly and competent. He came out the same day as I called and diagnosed my problem quickly, then spent a lot of time advising me how to service and maintain my car to prevent the same problem from happening again in the future. I recommend him.

Stefan is friendly and thorough. He provides an accurate assessment and honest recommendations for future service. I would gladly use him for future service.


on May 15

Stefan explained the findings well and I was very happy overall with his visit. But I'm disappointed that I haven't received any follow up from the company in the 6 hours since the visit. They charged my card for the diagnostic shortly after the visit but they haven't followed up, letting me know the estimate to fix the car, or at least that an estimate is being created, and a time frame for getting the estimate. So I have a diagnostic but also a car in my driveway that I can't drive, and no communication about the next step.


on May 16

Stefan did a great job. He was very thorough and took the time to make sure everything is properly assembled and tightened. He will answer your questions in a straightforward, thoughtful, and no BS/up-sell manner.


on May 17

Stefan was great! I think it is a convenient service but not less expensive than a shop. It took a little long to diagnose and the 75 charge to find the problem made it come out to the same as any shop. This was all decided by the office. I feel that the way it was explained to me over the phone was a little misleading. Not sure if I will use this service again.


on July 30

Stefan was extremely knowledgable and transparent with everything. High respect for him and would recommend him in a heart beat to work on my cars.

Stefan was terrific. He really gained my respect as he did not give up on the challenges the repair work presented. He is certainly one of your best. I hope that if the situation presents itself again that he will be the mechanic that shows up at my door. Please know that I have already referred him and your company to at least 5 of my friends and family members! Thank you!

Stefan was personable, friendly, and great! He arrived within the designated time and got the job done-- that's all that really matters. It's awesome that this service exists. I was able to cook and eat breakfast AND change my nail polish. :P


on June 09

It was a good experience with Stefan. He inspected the Car very well and pointed the things effectively. I would recommend to do pre purchase car inspection check with YourMechanic. It gives you clear idea on how much you need to pay for the car and service. Thanks :)

Stefan came 3 times to solve several car problems, which he solved very methodically. He came on time and finished the jobs in a reasonable time. I also like the fact that they come to your own drive way, wow! He calls you and tells you what time he is coming. Also, everything is done online. It all very convenient. The cost turned out cheaper than the dealer.

Highly would recommend Stefan, he is prompt and efficient! It was so convenient, I picked the time and Stefan came to my home and did the work! I would call on him for all of my mechanic needs from now on.

Stefan was very professional and took the time to answer any questions regarding the condition of the car. Highly recommend using Stefan for your auto needs. This was my first time using Your Mechanic and the home service is definitely a plus for anyone retired or just not readily able to leave your car with a service center located miles from home.
