Larry's is such an honest and reliable place to get your car repaired! They have never pressured us into doing anything that was not needed. In fact, if he sees something could be a problem in the future, he will monitor it and only suggest to get it fixed when it's absolutely necessary. They will take you home and pick you up if needed. Great service, fast and efficient! Highly recommend!!

As HONEST as they come! I bought a used car & quickly realized there was something wrong with the breaks. I took it into Larry and had his crew check it...

I had a car that I was considering buying from Carmax inspected by Larry. He told me that the car was badly rusted and not to buy it. Carmax insisted that the car was good, so I took it to the Toyota Dealer. They confirmed what Larry had told me. Larry saved me over $22,000. Two weeks later I had Larry inspect another vehicle. Larry told me that the car was in excellent condition, but that the rear shocks were leaking. The seller agreed to replace them at his cost. That saved me $500.

Larry's has been our auto repair and maintenance provider since 2000. They are conscientious in their inspections that have found problems that potentially could result in a serious safety malfunction of the auto. Also identifying problems that if addressed speedily would save considerable cost in the future. Their up-front explanation of repairs and projected cost will not bring any surprises. One thing that impressed me was their admittance that a repair on a particular auto was beyond their expertise, and then recommended a facility that was. David Welden

I have been to Larry's several times now, and they have mechanics you can trust. They also will let you know just what is wrong or going on with your car so you know if something has to be fixed as soon as possible. They have been great to work with, with great Customer Service!!

I have gone to Larry's Independent Services for many years. All the employees are very helpful and will go above and beyond to help me. They are prompt, efficient and have never overcharged me for parts or labor (I checked). I would definitely recommend this company.

New to Larry's but had my 2008 Lexus ISF 60K service done there after the dealer totally inflated the original estimate. I saved a lot of money and even had the tires aligned at $200 less than the dealer estimate for the 60K service alone. I also had my wife's 2007 Infinity G35 for an oil change and safety check. The only issue I had was that 10/30 weight oil was used instead of the manual recommended 5/30 on both cars. When I noticed this and called, I was asked to return immediately to have the oil changed out. There was no attempt to circumvent the issue or convince me that the 10/30 was just as good. Even though an oversight, the follow-up correction was impressive and showed a real commitment to pleasing the customer and creating good will. As referenced, very new to Larry's but thus far, a very positive experience and I plan to make Larry's my home for service and repairs.

I really lucked out searching Yelp for a local mechanic. This was my first time trying Larry's after reading some of his incredible reviews. They are honest and accommodating, as well as great mechanics. I am so fortunate to have found Larry, he and his staff are amazing. I will recommend him to everyone.

Larry and staff do great work. My family and I have had our cars serviced by him for years. He goes the extra mile and because his name is on the wall, you can tell the extra pride in detail is there.

I took my Ford Ranger pick up to Larry primarily because of one of his excellent mechanics Paul Galante. Paul diagnosed the problem immeadiatly and repaired the issue . I also had my transmission serviced and the trans was sealed up tight with no leaks. Larry is recovering from surgery so things are a little slower to get done right now. but that should improve when things get back to normal. I will take my vehicle back when I need repairs or service.

I have been a customer of Larry's Independent Service for over 15 years. I never have any reservations about taking my car there and I have never been disappointed. In fact, I have always been more than pleased. I especially appreciate their sound advice on multiple occasions when I was buying a new car.

Still going here and he is still the most honest and sincere mechanic we have ever been to. Everyone here is so nice, with a good sense of humor. Thanks Larry for everything!

This is the second time I have taken my vehicle to Larry's shop. I have always been treated with the highest level of accommodation and professionalism. When I felt that the pre-bill was going to be too high, they found a way to ensure that the items which needed to be done were handled and suggestions were provided for those items which could be delayed. This literally saved me hundreds of dollars. I do truly appreciate the work, timeliness and honesty of Larry, his front office manager Bob and the crew in the back. As our ex-Governor has been quoted to say, "I'll be back!"

Larry's Independent Auto repair has been terrific to work with for years! We have taken in all of our cars and feel very confident with the up keep and care of the cars. Larry has been honest,always calls with an estimate,picks up the car or takes me home prior to service and after, and even has a loaner when needed. With my busy schedule and my families hectic pace is definitly helps us keep up the maintenance on all of our cars and SUV.His prices our fair, and he will let you know what items can wait and what needs immediate attention. I would highly recommend Larry's Independent Service!

I've been going to Larry for five years and have always had a great experience. It's never fun to have to go to the mechanic but Larry has always made it much more pleasant than it could have been. The prices are more than fair and the turnaround time is on par or better than anyone I've ever used before. Larry is always upfront and honest. Yes, it sucks to have to have your car repaired and pay a bunch of money. So, yes it's not always the best of circumstances and I would love for it to cost less. But no one is going to do it for free. I haven't found anybody I like better than Larry and I've been driving cars and going to mechanics for several decades.

I have had quite a time finding a great shop for my car and my search is finally over. I have a Honda Prelude which started having some starting problems. I took it to two shops and was given almost an instant response that I need a new starter. They quoted me immediately and did not even take the time to really evluate the problem. I found Larry's shop from a recommendation from a neighbor. I took it there and they were the first to want to take time to evaluate the problem. After they took it in and performed the evaluation, I think about 30min, they concluded that it was an electrical issue that could be resolved shortly. I can't tell you how much less expensive this repair was compared to replacing the entire starter. I was very impressed with the shop actually diagnosing the problem before just changing a part like the other shops wanted to do. Thanks guys. Also, there actually is a Larry and he is in the shop!! Highly recommended!!

It seems like it takes forever to find a good mechanic. I found one I can both trust and appreciate. Larry's Independent Service is fairly priced (it's not the cheapest shop around or the most expensive) and they're honest. They've saved me money from needless brake repairs to the 100K mile service. I take pride in my cars and Larry's matches it. I recommend Larry's to anyone looking for a good, decent and honest mechanic.

My car was leaking gas due to the negligence of my prior auto service techs. I was scared and panicked but Larry and his guys helped me in a hurry. They got me back on the road the very next evening. The cost was affordable the team was helpful and overall I am satisfied! THANKS GUYS!
Fred Farr
I've been having my 2010 Lexus RX350 serviced at Larry's for the last 2 years and I am very happy. The team is courteous and the work is done promptly and much cheaper than the dealer. I will continue to use them and recommend them highly.

Bringing in my car for service has never been a fun experience and I don't expect it to be. I just expect that the shop I bring it to doesn't try to rip me off. I definitely did not feel taken advantage of at Larry's. I had my honda serviced here recently using one of their promo coupons. While there I had them look at a few other problems that I had been ignoring over the past few months. What was really cool is that they didn't just tell me what was wrong and how much it cost to repair, they actually took me back into the shop and "showed" me what was happening. I really appreciated that. On a side note...one of the cleanest shops that I've seen. That alone tells a lot about a mechanic. I've always taken that into consideration when judging a mechanic. I will definitely continue to go here.

The staff at Larry's Independent are very dependable and most of all honest. I've always feared of going to auto repair shops because I would not know if the mechanics are honest. It is great to know that I can trust the staff at Larry's and that I drive my car without worry because it is well maintained at this shop. I will definitely recommend Larry's Independent to my friends and family.

I will try to keep this short but a good read too. My wife called me saying the brakes on her SUV are making noise and I need to take it in for a brake job. I said I will do it soon and then decided to check the reviews here and ran into Larry's Independent (dis)Service and recalled that I got the brakes done with them last time. I had dropped off my car and in an hour or two he called saying I need this and that and ran up the bill to almost $600. This was about 2 1/2 years ago. It was an emergency and I clearly recall checking all the glorious reviews of this place. I was not happy with how much it cost to change the brake-pads and some other brake flush or other crap which was probably not needed. I had checked the reviews later on and noticed that they were all written around the same time, most likely by Larry himself. Well, funny I ran into his reviews and they are more balanced now though I trust the single star ones more than the 5 star ones based upon my one and only experience there. Back to searching for honest mechanic now.

GREAT GUYS, GREAT SERVICE. I am a real customer, i have an older car (1997) that I love and Larry has NEVER steered me wrong. Each time I have the car serviced, they check everything and report what they find. Larry personally reviews everything and helps me prioritize the repairs (what has to be repaired now, what can wait, etc. I have an acquaintance at Toastmaster's that uses Larry and he says the same thing - perhaps a little more than you want to spend each time, but Larry and his guys keep the car running like it should. Definitely worth it! If you read the other reviews slamming Larry's Independent Auto Service, it seems obvious to me that the review was written by a competitor. Follow the directions in the review and you'll know who they are. Yelp should remove those self-serving reviews. I have receipts to prove I am a regular, satisfied customer and the attacks on my favorite repair shop ticks me off. I live quite a ways away now, and still plan to have Larry check and service my car from time to time.
