I don't claim to be car savvy. I can pop open the hood of my baby (a silver '05 Toyota Solara) and check the oil and other fluids and do a basic assessment. Thanks to my years at Denso I know a little about how an alternator, starter, and other car parts function but that's as far as my knowledge goes so when it came time for an oil change and my 30k check up, I trust the experts. The experts at Larry's Independent Service. Years ago, two guys set up this shop in Mission Viejo and they have been reliably servicing the area for quite some time. I can trust my car here. Why? They're AAA guaranteed. You can see that guarantee right when you walk in and you know you're in good hands.If the work is going to take longer, you can either sit and chat (guaranteed laughs there), get some work down with their free wifi service, or they'll happily shuttle you home and pick you up when your car is done. Amazing! If you need to go to work, they can either shuttle your there or give you a loaner car. Again, amazing! Granted, when you walk in the shop doesn't look too spectacular and you might be a bit skeptical but hey, it's a car repair shop. It's not going to look like sunshine and roses. These guys mean business and you might see some grease spots. You know they're working.I got my 30k and oil change done for about $200. Beauty of it is, they stock Mobil 1. I love Mobil 1. It means my car can go 10-15k miles before the oil needs to be changed again. I'm all about convenience, folks. I don't like pumping gas (wish they invented gas that went that long) or going in every 3,000 miles or 3 months for an oil change. Mobil 1 makes my life easy and it lasts me for a whole year or a little under. Plus the folks at Larry's are happy to explain my options and in a dummies version for cars. They tell it to me straight instead of shooting some mumbo jumbo car vocabulary at me. They also physically show me the problem so I can assess for myself instead coming out from the garage and telling me I have potential problems. If I can't pay right away, they tell me how long I can go before the problem becomes a major deal. If you're a regular customer, you also get discounts and coupons in the mail. You gotta love that in this recession and they always remember your name and send you updates about your car and when you might be due for maintenance. Another great added feature.Highly recommended to anyone looking for a great auto service shop.
