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

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!

It was my first time using YourMechanic.com service and I was very pleased with the service and there professionalism. The mechanic arrived early and finished early, doesn't get better then that. Definitely would recommend for everyone to use YourMechanic.com services.

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.

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

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 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 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!!

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!

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 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 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.


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 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 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.

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 !


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 was very satisfied with stefan for performance on the job and his mechanical knowledge. paul&carol bilodeau


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.

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!


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 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 :)
