pretty fast service, expensive recommendations, embarrassing mechanic, great ed little auto svc, extensive research online, good car, good place
ED LITTLES TO LITTLE. The one time I was able to get an appointment service was good and done on time. You will not get any service as far as personal touch, but as far as mechanically, they do what the say in the time they promised. The biggest downfall to this shop is they can never find any time if you don't have an appointment. Which with cars is tuff because you never can predict when they will breakdown. I have had to find a different mechanic in culver city because I couldn't wait a week for him to check it out. If your not in any rush then go here. If you time is urgent this is not the place for you are find somewhere else
Okay mechanic. I went to Ed Little's based on reviews on CIty Search and Yelp. This was my first . I would go again. Service was pretty fast.
honest mechanics. period.. my family has been bringing our cars to Bob for as long as I can remember.. 10 years+.. always does quality work, with a complete breakdown of all work clearly explained on the invoice. they will call you in advance if you like before any work is performed to go over your options.. all in all, top notch. and yes, make an appointment.. like any good place, they're always swamped with business.. and it generally takes a few days to get in there.
Not hardly the shop it used to be.
I first learned of Ed Little a good 20 years ago. For years, I took my 70 Olds there for service. Sometimes by appointment, though not every time. Honest people who did a solid job. I?d not had occasion to get over there in a few years, but yesterday had the Olds towed in for service. It had broken down; thus, need for tow. First question Bob asked after running out to prevent tow-truck driver backing car into the lot: ?Do you have an appointment?? I said, ?No, sorry.? (Why would I? Since the car just broke down?) He said, ?Okay, what?s the problem?? (Never acknowledged he knew me, which he does.) ?Carburetor,? I said. ?Needs a base gasket, since gas is leaking from that spot.? Easy job, actually.
In so many words, he informed me as to how the guy who used to fix carburetors quit years ago, and how he had no one to do the work, etc. Then that I might try such-and-such place?a good distance further down the road, my car still hitched to a tow-truck, remember.
Far as I know, Ed Little continues to provide good and honest service to customers. I can?t personally attest to that by now, since I got no service at all. Thus, three stars, which is more than fair here. Little would have got five from me in the past, as well as now, if the place employed at least one mechanic who still knows how to work on a V-8, complete with carburetor, and if the first question wasn?t about whether or not I?d made an appointment, which is a silly question when a car is hanging off the rear-end of a tow-truck.
That Little doesn?t employ a mechanic who knows how to fix a carb (fix or rebuild, as necessary) is embarrassing, especially given how long the shop has been in business.
Needless to say, I won?t be going back to Ed Little, nor should anyone whose car isn?t fuel-injected?apparently. And look out if you?ve not made an appointment ahead of time.
Ed Little is no longer the auto-repair shop is was for so many years.
I AM SO THANKFUL FOR THESE GUYS!. This is the first time in California I have had conversations with mechanics where I felt they were being honest and upfront with me about my car's needs and not trying to sell me on getting service I don't need. I feel like they treat me the same way they would if they were fixing a relative's car. As a transplant from Pennsylvania with no family out here, this means a lot! When I go tp pick up my car after they've worked on it, I never get that knot in my stomach that I used to get . They get busy, so call ahead.
Ed Little Auto Service is SIMPLY THE BEST!!!. Bob Little is the son of Ed Little who opened this shop in 1953. He has done his dad proud giving Excellent HONEST service which is very hard to come by these days. I went to Bob after a conversation over the phone regarding some expensive recommendations the HONDA dealer suggested (that I felt were unnecessary) but I wanted to be sure. I did extensive research online and found awesome recommendations for this shop so i called at the very end of the day and someone answered! Bob spent time on the phone listening to me and answered my concerns and said "stop by the shop tomorrow and i'll be happy to check it for you" ....so I did and he spent 20 minutes checking my 2002 Honda Civic and told me NOTHING needed to be done your car is running perfectly. I offered to pay him for his time and he refused to take any money he was happy to do it. He said you decide to get your next oil service here I'll do a check again and if anything needs to be done I'll let you know.No reason to spend money on something you don't need. THIS PLACE ROCKS!!! and BOB you have a customer for LIFE!!! Thanks for being human and restoring my faith in mankind.
An Honest Mechanic!. I've taken several of my cars to Ed Little and have always left happy. After having some extensive work done (leaking head gasket), I had to take my car back because the leak reappeared. They stood behind their work with no argument.
