Stefan was awesome.


on June 07

Stefan is very thorough and detailed with his work. He gives full explanation of anything that he may see as a future problem. Best of all, he has great customer service. This is my second time having my car serviced by him and I look forward to utilizing him in the future. Even if he is unavailable, he is well worth the wait.


on June 05

Performed a thorough evaluation of potential problems and was able to rule out the simpler ones. Was very knowlegeable and did not cut corners, spending quite a long time working on the car and doing some detective work. Was not able to create a job to fix the problem in the end since it is most likely timing belt related which is work that cannot be performed by a mobile mechanic.


on May 18

Stephan confirmed my suspicion that the dealership's diagnosis was bogus and did a great drop fixing the real problem, which was a failing CV axle assembly (not a power steering hose, as prescribed by dealership). Now the steering "drift" on uneven surfaces is gone ! Stephan's honesty and technical competence saved me $$ on unneeded repairs !


on May 09

Stefan is always very helpful and professional. I've had him service my care on several occasions and he always does a great and thorough job.


on April 26

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!

Punctual, pleasant & knowledgeable. Always nervous when I need work done on the car but very comfortable with Stefan, he was couteous and effecient, what a relief.


on April 15

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.


on December 07

Stefan arrived on time for our appointment exactly between 3 and 4 pm (at 3:30pm). He inspected the car we were planning to buy. He also gave us a couple of tips on car maintenance. He is friendly, professional and reliable. We highly recommend him.


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 :)

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 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.


on July 23

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 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.


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.


on November 14

Stefan is amazing. I had him come over for a pre purchase inspection and he gave me all the info I needed to know. He was very clear in everything he found on the car and explained everything so clearly. I will definitely use his services again in the future.


on December 16

Stefan was great!. I have a very tiny car that unfortunately doesn't have much clearance for working on it. To replace my alternator Stefan had a lot of work cut out for him, and he did an amazing job with it. He was able to come out to my house on short notice and stand out in the freezing cold to fix my car.I was quoted a few different prices for an alternator replacement, YourMechanic had the lowest price. They are friendly and thorough! I love YourMechanic.com and will absolutely be recommending them to everyone!


on September 08

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.


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.


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.

Stefan was very professional and took a lot of time to explain what he found and repaired. He also answered any questions I had. He is very knowledgeable on Saabs which is great as this is hard to find. It remains to be seen if the oil leak was completely fixed.. I will be very impressed if it is as no one else has been able to fix it completely! I find this service very convenient! I wasn't sure if it would work due to where I live but Stefan was able to work with the area!

Changed the Alternator of Scion Tc in an hour ... Very friendly and gave me all the infos about whats need to be done next .. I am definately going to make an appoinment with him in future !!


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.

This is the 2nd time I have used this service. I am completely satisfied add to that we have had a jeep and a mbz successfully worked on and I highly recommend yourmechanic.com.


on October 23

This was my first time using Your Mechanic so, I was quite a bit skeptical. It took about an hour for Stefan to check out my car so, again, I am thinking he's probably finding a million things wrong and it's going to cost a fortune. Well, to my delight, he only found a couple of things - did not pressure me to let them do the work and even added I could wait a month or so to have the work done. After he left, I went online and my quote was waiting - I was astounded at the fair price I was quoted. I will definitely do business with them again and have ALREADY recommended to 2 friends of mine. VERY impressed!!


on December 16

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

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.

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 !
