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.

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 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.

Stefan was very helpful and knowledgeable in resolving the issues that my car had. Not every mechanic can do a proper job on working a BMW, but he did an exceptional job. Would definitely recommend Stefan to anyone.

Great Guy. Knowledgeable. Not every can work on Land Rovers so I was happy to hear he's owned one. Quick. Gave me estimates of other items needing attention. Will definitely use him again. Thanks Stefan!


on February 10

Always friendly. A very thorough diagnosis. Presented issues to me based on stages of severity. Left feeling you have a full picture to leave you in a position of making educated decisions. Stefan is extremely knowledgeable about Land Rovers. I trust him with this car.


on February 09

Stefan was great. He did a great job on my Honda, and let me know other issues i had with it. Looking forward to working with him again when he comes back tis week to do my Chrysler.


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 16

Stefan was fantastic! He was prompt to our designated appointment time and you could tell how confident he is about his knowledge of cars. I had zero concern leaving him to work on my Ford Escape. He even let me pick his brain a little bit about a minor issue I've been having with my car. I would absolutely recommend him.


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 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.


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.


on March 28

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?

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


on April 01

Very thorough & polite. I was happy with my first experience with "your mechanic", but this my second, was way better. Did a complete inspection, more thorough than the first. Very competent, always pleasant & gave me advice on the best care to keep my car in good running condition. I won't hesitate to ask for Stefan again!


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 !
