Stepfan did a fantastic job changing the oil and filter. He showed me the parts he used and was meticulous in his work. Stepfan is very experienced working on BMW cars and I would not hesitate to contact him for additional services or repairs in the future.

Stefan seemed knowledgeable, efficient, and thorough, taking care to check that everything was working properly when he had finished his repair work. I was pleased both with his work and with the reasonable cost.


on November 02

Stefan seemed very thorough and systematic in his work. He quickly arrived at a credible diagnosis of our car's problem, but did not have the parts on hand to actually make any repairs.


on October 25

Very knowledgeable about the parts in the car. Willing to help check potential brake squeeze. Give suggestions about how to get the brakes fixed in a more practical and cheaper way from long-term perspective. Warn me about the current condition of steer powering fluid and brake fluid. And, has a good sense of humor!

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 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.

Very good experienced for the first time using mobile mechanic. Stefan was very thorough and take time to explain what happened. He did check a few things that required attention with my and recommend what needed to be done. I feel comfortable on what he was saying details on the problem. He did a very good job on my car problem. I will definitely happy with the result of the correction of the issue in my car. He is very honest on the technical issues. Thank you very much!

Stephan is a knowledgeable mechanic that takes the time to explain what is to be done and makes sure that there are no questions unanswered. He is also professional and courteous. I have used him for previous jobs and was very satisfied and would recommend him to family and friends if the needed a mechanic. However, I can't say the same for the office staff, but aside from that he is a qualified and competent technician.

Stefan not only followed up with me after the appointment but also was happy to respond to further questions when I called him back several times after! Stand-up guy.


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.

I never knew getting your oil change and car service could be such a Pleasant experience very professional and amazingly clean not even a speck of dirt

Everything was fine except for the piece of plastic I found under my car. I don't recognize it. Is it from my car or is it part of one of Stephan's tools?

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 March 04

Stefan was very polite and very professional. He explained to me what needs to be done, how long it will take, and what to expect afterwards. He also explained to me in detail the future services/work that needs to be done on my car to make sure it performs safely and in top condition.

Stefan successfully replaced the starter on our vehicle. He gave us a courtesy text to let us know when he was on his way. The whole job took 2.5 hours. At the onset, Stefan took the time to explain the work that needed to be done. After the job was completed, he provided a thorough debrief. Overall, Stefan was very pleasant to work with: very courteous, friendly, respectful, knowledgeable, and competent. Would highly recommend him for your next car repair.

Warranty expired on the Jag so looked for a competitive price break on Fluid Flushes/Maintenance. Coolant flush: Digital dial reports healthy after flush (don't have a temp gauge) Brake Flush: Removed old fluid, brakes firmer Steering Fluid flush: Removed old fluid, turns smoothly Oil Change: Digital dial reports new oil, due in 12 months He seems knowledgeable on newer Jags, that tells me he and his party knows a lot about Euros, new or old


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 August 14

Stefan was helpful, knowledgeable and thorough. I truly appreciated his expertise and it was a delight to have him come to my home and I could still continue my work. Thank you for great service! I would definitely use your services again and would certainly request Stefan!

Stephan showed up within the arrival window, was complete in his review of the tasks to be performed on my 2006 Ford Explorer for it's 100,000 mile and transmission servicing. Left the driveway clean and I would recommend his services.


on March 13

The whole process was awesome. I was extremly pleased with the service and the resluts. Stafan answered all my questions and made some very important sugestions for me to consider asking of my dealer. This was a pre purchase inspection and the communication from Stephan was right on. The report that was forwarded to me was extreamly detailed and I loved the full evalutation of the inspection. I would most assuradly recommend Stefan and Your Mechcanic to all my friends and family.

Arrived on time. Very pleasant and personable. Did an thorough job and tidied up afterwards. Brakes work very well. Not a squeak. Thank you. Will DEFINITELY request you again for my 2007 Volvo S60.

Stefan did a great job and was very knowledge and down the earth. Explained the repair in detail and what other parts of the car that need service for future reference.


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 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 !
