I have been dealing with this mechanic through two generations and longer than some of my husbands. They are great at repairing cars, use up to date equipment, are patient with customers, are ALWAYS reasonable, trustworthy, and have done a good job on my last 4 cars for the last 26 years. They are always responsive when I have an automotive emergency. They only work on American cars. Ed Little was one of the men who developed the law in California about giving customers WRITTEN estimates. They do a wonderful job above and beyond what I expect.

Bob was clear when explaining a squeaking noise in my steering column, said it was an o-ring seal for the air bag and if left unrepaired would not cause any harm, though it would cost 250 dollars to alleviate the squeaking noise. When he repaired my clunking brakes he was also clear and explained the problem and his personal recommendation of machining the rotor every time the brakes are replaced to prevent the rotors from being warped. A bit more expensive, but it would have saved me more than it cost to fix the problem. Helpful, knowledgeable. recommended.

I already submitted a comment without taking the survey. Then I decided to go back and do the survey... but... since you ask. I've been using this garage for years. I have always found them to be honest, competent, and informative.

Bob just did excellent work and great customer service for my car. My wheel needed new bearings and he quoted me the price to do both sides. Turns out, only one side had failed. How often do you pay less than your original quote? On top of that, he checked out the PCV hose, which he said was frequently a problem and offered that as a preventative. I just moved into the neighborhood, and its a relief to find a good mechanic I can trust.

I've used them for decades. Their diagnosis is usually accurate and I feel they've always been honest with me and have tried to save me money. I wish I knew a contractor I could say the same about.

They have had the opportunity to do additional work (tell us we needed something we really didn't need on an old car) and they haven't done that. We feel very comfortable with the mechanics there.

Both times I rolled into this shop, I've been treated with respect AND courtesy. The oil change guys at EZLube or whatever made my car tick. Incessantly. I have a warranty, but my dealership is so far away that I thought my car might blow up before I got there. So I Yelped for a good neighborhood mechanic, and at Ed Little that's exactly what I found. FOR FREE, Bob Little diagnosed my ticking issue (said oil change guys had knocked something into the engine), plucked out the foreign object, and sent me on my merry way. I gotta say, I'm a small-town girl and sometimes it's scary to live in the Big-Ass City. But since Bob agreed to be my "forever mechanic," I feel less alone, less scared, and much, much happier. I returned to my beloved mechanic's shop another day to fix my cigarette lighter in my car. I had tried a couple things, but was ready to buy a whole new mechanism. Bob and Company looked at the lighter, giggled, and replaced the fuse. For free. They were busy, but still courteous, patient and funny. Ed Little reaffirms my faith in humanity, or at least mechanics.

These guys were amazing. As a female, I was wary of taking my car to a new mechanic, but they were in the neighborhood and seemed to get great reviews on here and on yelp, so I gave it a shot. Within 10 mins of arriving, they had my car up on the lift and were inspecting the brakes while I waited for the diagnosis. To my GREAT surprise, they told me that I still had about 40% on my front brakes and 80% on the back and the reason why they might have been squeaking is because I drove my car back east where the snow leads to some rust build-up. They said they could work on them if I wanted them to, but they recommended not worrying about it. They could have easily told me something was wrong that they needed to fix. And, the cherry on top was the fact that this was all completely FREE of charge!!! So, I went there expecting to spend hundreds of dollars and left having spent nothing and having the peace of mind that my brakes are ok. I'm DEFINITELY going back to these guys and will recommend them to all of my friends.

Bob was very gracious and took time to explain what was going on with my car. Because he was helping with something small (investigating the check engine light and adjusting a few things), I was charged nothing. I was there only 5 minutes. This is the only place I will go to for auto repair from now on.
