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.

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.


on July 06

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 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 July 15

Stefan was great to work with I will be using his device in the future. He's very profesional and knows his stuff.


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 July 12

Stefan was on time, was very careful to keep the work area clean and seemed to care about the work he did.


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.

This is the second time I have used Stefan and would use no one else. He is professional and friendly and could not be more accommodating. Your Mechanic is a lifesaver for people who work - they come to your home at your convenience.


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.

I am still waiting for UBER to tell me they received the inspection report from Your Mechanic. I thought this would happen automatically since I was told it would be transmitted electronically. This is my only complaint. the mechanic, Stefan was very satisfactory.


on March 15

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 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

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.

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.

Oil change and tire rotation deal for $70 is a great deal. Detail report with pictures and voice notes is a plus. Beats HOPING jiffy lube actually did the service they said they did. "your Mechanic" is an awesome service love it!


on September 10

I used YourMechanic.com for the first time today and received an oil change/tire rotation from Stefan. I was truly impressed with the service, especially since it was 100+ degrees outside while being completed in my driveway. Stefan was professional, upbeat, and knowledgeable about the maintenance work provided. All in all, great service, and great technician!


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 October 19

Stefan arrived on time and was extremely efficient at changing my car oil and rotating my tires. Very knowledgeable guy and would definitely look for his help on anything I need in the future. Great job!

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.

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.

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!

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.

Stefan showed up in a timely manner was very professional didn't mind me asking questions and gave great advice for what steps i shoud take to resolve my issues. I would definitely recommend to friend and family.


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.
