Larsen Enterprises repairs most makes Japanese. However, I've taken my Maserati to have Matthew work on and poke around it. Always explains the problem/repair specifically and then how it relates to the remaining economic life of the car if that may be a factor. Both my brother and my self have been taking our cars to Larsen's for about 10 years.

Matthew and the guys at Larsens have serviced my 1994 Toyota pickup and 1993 Corolla since 1994 -- they are honest, fairly priced, offer terrific explanations for the non-mechanically inclined, and I really trust them with my cars. I moved away from Olympia four years ago and still have my cars serviced there when I can arrange a trip from Portland. The last time my car broke down on the freeway, I was happy that it was near Olympia! I had it towed to Larsens, and felt better knowing it was in good hands.

This is a great place to get your car repair. My 92 Miata has over 375,000 miles on it and I only bring it to Larsen for repairs. They are always polite and accommodating. Matt and the rest of the team take the time to explain what is wrong and what your options are. If they don't think its worth the money to repair it, they will tell you that. The first time, I took my Miata in to Larsen (based on comments here in this website), they fixed what I wanted and told me the front brakes should probably be replaced in the near future. I said I would do that next time. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I was not able to pick the car up until the next day. When I did, Matt had replaced the front brakes because the car didn't sound right to him. I said fine, how much more do I owe? Matt's reply was nothing since I had not wanted to replace the front brakes until next time and they did it anyway, it would be no charge. I have found over the last four years I have brought my car in for servicing and repair, this is typical. I highly recommend Larsen Enterprises.

Without a doubt the best shop I have ever been to. Very honest and willing to explain the problem. Willing to give rides to work and back. Recently I had some major work done on my engine and on the way home the oil light went on. Having been cautioned by Matthew prior to the work that this may not fix the probem I figured that it was simply the end of the line. I called Matthew and he encouraged me to bring it back for one last look. Ends up they found that in addition to the work they did they should have recommended one additional replacement. Long story short they re-did $1400 of parts and labor without a peep and charged me nothing. They didn't have to do this, but they did. Very classy. This shop is so good that I buy cars they specialize in and avoid the ones they don't work on.

Car is a 1990 CRX, and these guys are my regular repair shop now. This summer I came in midday with a battery on its last few electrons and they checked and replaced it on the spot, interrupting other work to do so. An expensive plastic part of the heater control broke a couple of years ago, and they recommended an inexpensive, effective work-around rather than ordering a replacement (the fix still works fine). Shop provides rides to and from worksites, at least in central Olympia.

I love this place! I'd read their reviews here and had been planning on calling them to get my '98 Civic in to them for a long needed check-up. However, my car forced my hand sooner that I'd planned. Late one night, my car went poof (white smoke billowing everywhere, shaking and lurching). The next morning I called Larsen's and explained what had happened and asked if I could have it towed in. (I'd never been there or talked to them before.) Come on in, they said, you don't even need to come in with the car. We'll let you know when the tow truck drops it off and then call you again when we've had a chance to look at it and have an estimate. The car got to them a little before noon. By 3 pm, I'd had my estimate, and by 3 pm the next day I had my car back in excellent running order and for less than the estimate! I've found my new mechanic. As a woman, I'm very hesitant about being taken by a mechanic. As a car owner who hasn't been as good to her car as I should, I dread the guilt trip and extras a mechanic can add. Larsen's did nothing of the sort. 5 pages of part and labor (including a timing belt change) for less than my last mechanic charged for a timing belt change alone. If you have a car that needs any work or just regular maintenance, bring it to Larsen's - you won't be sorry!

I have taken my various cars to these guys for years - Dodge Caravan, Plymouth Voyager, Mitsubishi Galant, Chev S- 10 pickup and Acura Integra (my son's car). They always do great work, don't overcharge, tell me what was wrong, and are very competent. They are so good it usually takes a week to get in, my only complaint. So I have gone to other places when I couldn't wait. Kudos to Matt Adams and the rest of the crew.

I do some auto work on my own cars but, I do not have a full blown auto shop. Also I am not a journyman mechanic by any means.I am a guy that was first introduced to Larson Enterprise by a happy-co worker female. Most important thing to me about any auto shop is that they be honest. I beleive Larson enterprise is an honest shop. I bought a nice type 1 Mazda RX-7 which they worked on. Later I bought a nicer Mazda type 2 RX-7 convertable and they work on it infact, they are the only ones that put there hands on it besides me. They have also recently worked on my 1987 suberue gl sedan. Matt and larson Enterprises has gone beyond what is comon in auto repair and they keep it that way. Oh by the way I once had a problem with a job thay did and Matt took care of it promptly. I dont know what you can ask for more from this shop. they are pretty fair kinda people to do buisiness with.

My parents started going to larsen enterprises when they moved here from seattle about 26 years ago and we all havn't stopped. Mathew and C.B. are put a lot of effort and have pride in there work. They allways answer every question I have with great detail and enthusiasm. My sister, mom , dad and me have all owned many subarus and Larsen enterprises has been very honest about what needs to have work and what can wait. hands down the best mechanics in town! -Nolan

Can't say enough about these guys. They have a terrific reputation in and around Olympia. I have never had to worry about my cars when I left them there or after picking them up. They're fabulous and I wish I could have taken them with me when I moved to Arizona. BEST CAR SHOP EVERRRR!!!!!
