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.

Stefan did a great job, took his time, answered every question I had and got my car back up and running right from my driveway! I can't wait to tell everyone to use the services of your mechanic.


on November 18

Stefan is very knowledgable and thorough fixing my car. This my second time using Your Mechanic with Stefan as my mechanic, and I couldn't be more pleased. I have recommended this company to all my friends. You will not be disappointed making your next appointment with Your Mechanic, and having Stefan working on your car.

Whenever my car needs a little TLC, i always rely on Steffan's workmanship and im never disappointed.

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 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.

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 let me know he was going to be a few minutes behind which was ok with me. He explained to me what was completed and recommendations for the future. I highly recommend asking for Stefan. I will use him in the next few weeks to work on my wife's brakes. I liked the fact a received a receipt with photos of the old and new product.


on July 10

Appreciated that he called to say he was running behind from his last appt. Very cordial and approachable. Oil changed completed along with 50 point inspection in a timely manner. Definitely would use Stefan again.


on March 19

Although my car wasn't fixed due to wrong parts. Stefan did a good job. I didn't hear from anyone in the front office about getting the right parts or a follow up but he did a good thorough inspection since I was obligated to pay for an hour of labor Stefan took upon himself to perform an inspection on my car. Thumbs up for Stefan.

Stefan, was late due to correct part not arriving on time, which ended up not being correct and going back to get the correct one. He told us battery and belt were shot due to bad alternator and therefore we would need to get these also. He did a great job and we would ask for him again in the future.

Had a little difficulty with your mechanic this time around however Stefan was very responsive and helpful with all communication. Thanks you Stefan.

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 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 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 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 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.

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...

car

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 !

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 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 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 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.

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!
