Gloria Wow, I am so pleased with Larry and everyone who works there! They are like having a good doctor you trust, and if there is anything wrong with your car they will let you know so as to prevent a larger expense in the future. Very easy to work with, very clean and a nice waiting room place. Excellent service and everyone is great!!
5
Bill Had hoped to trade my first born A lot of work done faster than ever expected and very fair prices. CLEAN smell good work. Hope to bring it back in another 100+k miles or 10 years if I last that long. Don't let Lexus owners read this or you will put their service dept out of business. bp. and yes Larry's accepts the AAA $100. Draw winers coupon
5
Norm In and out quickly for oil change. Good job.
5
Ann Marie Another great experience! I took my car to Larry and he found that the problem with the transmission was another messed up fix to my transmission from the dealer. This is the second time that Larry has found something wrong with my car and let me know that it is covered under the warranty. Both time he called the dealer to let them know what he found and what needed to be done so I didn't have to fight it out with them. What more could you ask for! Seriously, this is why I take my car to Larry and Paul. I want to be able to take my car to a mechanic that will take care of my car as if it is his own.
5
Les and Dawn Knowledgeable staff, friendly, and trustworthy.

Norm Made appoint for oil change special at $26.95. When I checked in, said I had appoint for Internet oil change special. The guy behind the counter took the car, prepared the paperwork, and asked me to sign it. Saw the estimate was $44.95 and questioned it. He said that was the normal price and it would be adjusted down at checkout. When car was done, same guy was preparing invoice and asked if I had AAA and I said yes. He said OK that will be $41.95. Again questioned why not $26.95. He said oh, I will adjust it down. Why advertise a special if all they do is ignore it repeatedly? Irritating.
5
David and Lise Great service & professional!
5
Joanna Excellent service as always!

Nate Honest and convenient
5
Chris Great place to get your car serviced
5

5
Anon Very pleasant, helpful and easy to do business with. They are informative, knowledgeable and upfront about any repair costs.
5
David Came into Larry's for some routine maintenance and of course Larry took care of me as he always does . Thanks to Larry and his crew for keeping my car running top notch.
5
Judy Very good service. Effective and efficient repair service. Friendly, helpful staff.
5
Steve Had to get a radiator replaced in my truck. Took it to Larry's and not only did he pre-order the radiator, but had his ace mechanic Paul install it the next morning in about 3 hours. Great Service.
5
Grant Excellent service with a professional and friendly attitude. These folks know how to make car repairs a pleasant experience, and are very open and up front about every step of the process. Having had poor experiences elsewhere, I can truly appreciate the quality of work Larry's team puts forth.
5
Al Have had nothing but great service and experiences thus far. Keep up the good work..
5
Jay Great service. Great communication and great follow up. Larry's Independent takes the time to explain things to me about my vehicles . Glad I found you guys. I will recommend my friends.
5
Kay Very professional! Called for a service appointment, chose from several time slots, dropped off the car, received a call when the car was ready to be picked up, and even answered all of my questions about the service and miscellaneous automotive questions.
5
Mark Larry continues to be a trusted advisor and provider of top-notch service for many years for our family. Thanks Larry!
5
Gloria As usual, Larry's never disappoints for trustworthy, and I know I am taken good care of when I go to Larry's. I never have had a bad experience for the past few years since I started going to Larry's Independent Service. I recommend to anyone looking for a trustworthy mechanic.
5
David Once again Larry save the day and saved my car. Can't say enough about how Larry and his crew and how awesome they are. Thankyou Larry for all you do. You'll be on my Christmas list for sure.
5
Ann Marie Larry and Paul did a great job as always and were very communicative with what I needed to have services in my car. Fair pricing.
5
Hal I've been taking my car and my wifes car to Larry for the last couple years. Every problem that I've had has been fixed excellently. If there was any small adjustment or something wasn't quite right larry has taken care of it. He's also provided me a ride back to my home and then back to the shop when one of my cars were ready and that's about a 30 mile round trip. So, that is a huge help when I'm in a situation with no one to driving back home after I drop off my car so larry has seen to it that I always have a ride. I've had no issues with any repair and when one small communication breakdown happened Larry went above and beyond and offered to repair the item in question at my convenience and no cost. So, I will just sum up that all of the work has been excellent and Larry has been very compassionate and understanding in any issue that I may have had. I absolutely would have no problem referring anyone to Larry independent.
5
Kay Took my 2007 ES 350 in for it's 50K service. Service was done and completed when promised.
5
Bill & Sharon We have been going to Larry for years! In my opinion you will never find a more honest trust worthy mechanic in all of OC! He offers his suggestions without being pushy! Now days, it's hard to fine someone like this! Highly recommended and his staff is awesome as well! Thank you Larry for all you've done for us! Highly recommend!!
5
Pat Professional, friendly and prompt service with fair and reasonable charges compared to dealers.
5
Al Ominous metallic sounding noise noise turned out to be a minor issue. Quickly explained and inexpensively treated. Thanks for the prompt and honest service.
5
Judy Very efficient and friendly service.
5
Terry Larry's was recommended by the manager of a brake and tire company that I have used and trusted for years. The service was prompt and completed as I had been told it would be. I was kept informed during the period that they had my car in the shop. I strongly recommend them and will use them in the future if needed.
5
David My wife, my son and myself have gone to Larry several times. Each time I drive away thanking that Larry is our mechanic. He is more than fair and always takes care of the problem. It's not easy finding a professional nowadays that you have full trust in. But I trust Larry. He's always done us well and that why I don't hesitate going to Larry for my car needs. Anybody ask me for a mechanic, I don't hesitate to recommend Larry. He's the mechanic you've been looking for.
4
Mark Always straight up quality service.
5
David Been to Larry's several times. There's no hesitation when my car needs service that I will contact Larry to get the job done. Always friendly, always reliable, always fair, Larry helps me in my time of need.
5
Jan and Chris Great service!
5
Peggy Larry makes me feel comfortable in his advice.
5
Chris Always great service and very accommodating.
5
Brian Honest, reliable, and fast service at reasonable prices. Terrific!
5
Aaron My experience is always positive! My car was treated and cared for as if it was their own. The work is top quality and efficient. Everything was explained to me before work was started and as always my car was done when they said it would be. Very professional!! Thanks!
5
Lisa Great service
5
Brooks We had a great experience with Larry's Independent Service. We were traveling through the area when our Acura's check transmission light appeared. We stopped, searched for mechanics in the area, read the great reviews for Larry's, and were not disappointed. Carlos told us to come right over and they took care of us immediately. Larry and his staff were friendly, helpful, and quick. They ordered the part and completed the work for a reasonable price.
5
Al I feel I am getting quality service at a quality price. Keep up the good work!
5
Mark & Joyce Great - That's why I keep coming back. The mechanics know their stuff. Your prices are reasonable. You're honest...that's biggie in your business. Laryy's fun to talk to. It's a no-brainer.
5
Peggy Everyone that I saw were courteous, pleasant, helpful. The service was on-time for my appointment; fast and efficient. The waiting area was very comfortable. Thank you.
5
Sarah I took my Jeep to Larry's for the first time and was extremely impressed. Fair prices, strong ethics, and a friendly atmosphere. It's hard to find a legitimate auto repair shop that doesn't try to rip off new customers. They even had a loaner car for me! I'll definitely be referring Larry's to my friends and family!
5
Doug & Kelle We've been taking all of our cars to Larry's for over 20 years now and he continues to give us great service.We are happy as always!!
5
David Went in for a oil change, and again their comprehensive inspection found a potential problem that being repaired and fixed prevented a costly future repair, or could have led to a catastrophic failure, which could have put myself and occupants in danger. Thankfully, David Ray Welden
5
Brian Larry's provides expert service at a fair price. You may be able to save a few bucks somewhere ekse, but youll nevervfind a more honest mechanuc than Larry.
5
Judith I am grateful to you all for your impeccable service.
5
Matthew Awesome work...they go above and beyond to make sure things are done right. I have full confidence in this shop!!
5
Denis So far everything is running smoothly.
5
Colin The shop has a professional feel to it! So far the brake job and Larry's advice to brake softly for the 1st 100 miles were great. Had an oil change this time with some solid observations about other items that need attention in the months and year ahead. There are a couple of small business coaching suggestions. The observations this time included changing the brake fluid and this is just a couple of months after the brake job. Perhaps it tested fine at the time of the brake job and now tests as contaminated. Still, from the non-technical consumer perspective, I like being given the option of replacing fluids whenever a system, like the brake system is being worked on. The other observation is to provide yourselves enough time to get something done. When something small like a followup email arrives after the time indicated, it reduces the sense of the overall quality of the service and the relationship you would like to cultivate with your clients. It also causes people to pause just that little bit before making that referral. As a final note Larry and his folks seem to know what they are doing and seem to have genuine concern for the welfare of their clients and the clients' property. The next couple of visits will tell for sure.
5
David Hey Larry, you and your crew are the best. Even though this time it was just routine maintenance, you delivered on time and cheaper than you quoted. What more could I ask for. Look forward to our next visit. Thanks again, the Acuna's
5
David Larry completed a standard check up, identified some problems, and fixed them within the stated time-frame and price. As always, I felt confident that I could safely and confidently drive the car for another few months without worrying about any sort of predictable failure. And, the following day, it passed a STAR smog check with flying colors.
5
Jeff Larry seems to be a honest guy who will do a thorough job at a reasonable price
5
Anon I highly recommend Larry's Independent Service for your car service needs. They have dependable, trustworthy, and friendly staff. Their prices are reasonable and they will not recommend any service they don't feel is necessary. Definitely a 5 star business!
5
Judy Always a great experience. Always competent evaluations and repair work. Friendly people and expert advise and repairs.
5
Long Professional service.
5
Derek Larry was thorough, clear and concise in his diagnosis of the service our 2001 Sequoia needed. The work was finished as promised on time. And the car ran great and smooth as we headed out for the holiday weekend!
5
Anon I've had my car serviced at a dealership for many years, and am very satisfied with my first maintenance service at Larry's. They are knowledgeable, trustworthy, and provide an excellent customer service. I would definitely return to Larry's for my future services.
5
Anon Carlos is awesome. Larry is a good listener.
5
Gloria Larry has a Great honest company, and he is very trustworthy. It is difficult to find an honest mechanic these days, so I do recommend Larry's Independent Service. You won't be sorry once you go there.
4
Anon Larry always makes an honest assessment of what needs to be completed for your car repairs. The results are always excellent.
5
Sloane Always excellent service with fair pricing.
5
Paul Larry and his mechanics have always been great, but this past Friday they made a very special effort to have my car ready by the end of the day. Larry was aware of a temporary issue with my son,knowing that my vehicle was the one he needs for transport. Thank you Larry!
5
Steve This was my first time using Larry's and I left very impressed with the honesty and ethical treatment I received. They did excellent work and I would definitely recommend them to others.
5
Fred Service done promptly and I was given a loaner car to use!
5
Grant Excellent customer service, knowledgeable staff, very competitive pricing, and an honest and up-front attitude with transparent communication. Needless to say, I now have a preferred mechanic I can trust, and I will definitely be recommending these guys to family and friends. Best experience I've had in a very long time.
5
Roy Everything you could hope for. Honest, fair pricing and great work. Would highly recommend.
5
Ken Very friendly and responsive to my needs.
5
Hal On my visits to Larry's, I am quoted accurately, offered a ride to and from my home about ten miles away. They follow up on all service and often email me discount offers. The work and all communication with me is always professional and I recommend Larry's Independent Auto very highly.
5
Carol Larry's Independent Service is a highly professional auto service, with well-trained mechanics. They aren't cheap, but neither is their service. They always do a fine job of both diagnosing and repairing whatever problem you may have with your automobile. They've been keeping my 2000 Toyota running just fine, thank you very much.
5
Brian Larry is a strait shooter. I have used him for years and he as well as his crew always do a top notch job at a fair price. I had him look at 2 used cars that I considered buying. He found bad rust in one and recommended that I not buy it. The Toyota dealer confirmed his analysis. The second car Larry found that the rear shocks were bad. The Toyota dealership replaced them for free saving me $500
5
Gloria Good customer service, and great about finding out what is wrong with your car!
5
Meryl I brought my car in for a second opinion. Larry was very honest with us from start to finish. The repairs were done quickly and my car is running great, and looks great too. The Detailer Larry uses is top notch.
5
Anon They earned my trust for quality work at reasonable price.
5
Al Wife's car had a tire pressure sensor issue and the air conditioning was not working properly. Larry's diagnosed the problems and made the necessary repairs in a very timely manner...Job Well Done! Although relatively new to Larry's we continue to be impressed. Our confidence and trust grows with each visit.
5
Sandie What can I say? Larry Ray and his team are exceptional. What I respect and admire about Larry is his honesty. He gives you the facts and lays out the details of your repair in such a way that you are able prioritize what repairs should be done first. I am a repeat customer and will continue to bring my vehicle and hand out Larrysindependen business card to friends and contacts.
5
Denis Service was quick, thorough and efficient! Thanks! Denis Moss
4
Deborah & Ed A reliable place to take my Honda. The service was quick and well done.
5
Anon on time and on estimate. able to get back and forth with courtesy ride
5
Erin Service was excellent & always is!
5
Mike & Maria The team at Larry's Independent has worked on all of our cars for about the last 10 years. My husband and I are both in field sales so our cars are critical to our ability to work. Our son had a 1995 Dodge Avenger until a couple years ago - Larry was able to find parts and keep that beast running. Larry and his team are great at what they do, friendly, and communicative. No one else works on our cars and I never hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
5
Jerry Already posted. Outstanding.
5
Jerry Already posted.
5
Jerry As far as I'm concerned, there is none better than Larry's Independent Service. He saved me a ton of money in fixing my 2004 Prius. He not only repaired my hybrid electrical problem but also three other problems I didn't know I had. They were all real. i have no reason to doubt his honesty or sincereity. Larry will always be my first choice for repair. GEM
5
Mark and Leisa Larry fixed my car and even gave us a loaner car so we were not inconvenienced. Thank you, Larry!
5
Scott As usual Larry and his mechanics did a great job! This time it was my 33' Motorhome. Tight fit behind the shop, but as usual the job was done professionally and on time.
5
Debbie always does a great job!
5
Matt I've used Larry for a few services for my Tahoe. He found the problem this time and got me in a and out in two days. He has loaner cars and or able to drop off. Great service.
4
Larry and Linda I always know that I'm going to get an honest assessment regarding my car. Larry's Independent keeps my car in good working condition.
5
Cheryl & Florian Excellent service-- reliable and honest!!!
5
Shahram Great job. Exceeded all expectations!
5
David I found from being a repeat customer that you guys are always professional and courteous. You took care of was needed and gave free recommendations on what is best for my vehicle. And above all, you are more than fair on the cost.
5
Fred Had my 2010 Lexus serviced by Larry's. The work was completed on time and they even gave me a loaner car to use. They've been maintaining my car since I purchased it and continue to do a good job.
3
Ron I was greatly surprised when I received a phone call that would cost $700 in parts to repair something that I've been told previously would only cost $250. Perhaps it was simply a communication problem but I was a little disappointed.
5
Mark and Leisa My experience at Larry's Independent Service was great! I was able to comfortably hang out at the shop while my car was being worked on - the staff was friendly and welcoming (and even the other customers). My car is safe and taken care of! Thank you, Larry!
5
Frank & Tina Great service and humor too!
5
Anon Excellent service. Larry diagnosed as a minor item what looked to me like a serious one - engine light on. He fixed it while I waited without an appointment and at very minor cost. I was on my way quickly. Highly recommended.
4
Keith This was my first visit to Larry's. My wife's Honda was having trouble starting and her being late for a meeting she took off in my car. Our Honda had been serviced entirely at the dealer since purchase and I was determined after my last experience to find a good independent mechanic. The last few visits to the dealer led to a barrage of recommended services. Some obviously unnecessary, and just money makers. Larry had me come right down to his shop with the car. His team diagnosed my car correctly within the first 30 minutes, and I even had routine maintenance done on top of the car starting problem. No muss, no fuss. They are competent, and friendly. The shop is clean and professional. I feel relieved to have found them and intend to bring my own car as well as my wife's for service. Enough of the cookie cutter dealers that really don't deserve my loyalty. Keith W. Mission Viejo.
5
Denise First time customer. Was impressed with the honesty and friendliness.
5
Hal Repairs were made as had been described to me and Larry called me to inform me of progress throughout the process and described the work that was done. I had no one to drive with me to pick up my car so Larry"s provided a driver to take me from my home to the shop.
5
Debbie Larry'Independent Service is wonderful. I was given an accurate quote and advised what was necessary this minute and what could wait a while. My car was fixed in a timely manner. Larry was friendly and informative. I'll definitely bring my car back to him.
5
Denis The car is running great . Thanks
5
Bobbi Larry is always easy to work with. He is trustworthy and flexible.
4
Carol It's hard to say whether Larry's service was above average or excellent, but I know this: It was a pleasure to have my car in Larry's capable hands. I believe that Larry's Automotive is a very professional place to take one's car, having come from a dealer background. So, although a little expensive, they're good. How good will be determined later as I drive the car. So far so good ...
5
Denis The car is running better as everything was repaired as promised.
5
Sid Wonderful service in lush surroundings, pleasant well maintained restroom, supplies crutches for the disabled.
5
Jan and Chris The old truck is running great!
5
Matthew Larry and his crew are the best! They go above and beyond for their customers and we are very satisfied!
5
Gloria So far, so good. This was only my 2nd visit and so far, I feel like there is honesty and good quality work here. Only one thing, which I already called about. my little sticker to return for oil check was left off my car, and I only noticed a while later. I called though, and Larry said he would stick the sticker with my mileage return in the mail. I am expecting it within the next few days.
5
Al We had my wife's Infiniti in for a routine oil change and wheel alignment. This was our second visit, the last being a 60K service on my Lexus; both went very well and are quite pleased.. So, although we are new to Larry's, we have enjoyed our experience thus far and plan to continue using Larry's as our primary service provider. The only glitch during both visits was the use of 10/30 wt. oil instead of the manufacturer's recommended 5/30 wt.. When I brought this to Larry's attention, the oil was quickly and courteously changed out on both cars . Again, bottom line, as new costumers, we are quite satisfied and will continue as loyal customers. It is early in the game but at this point, I will give Larry's a 10 in the "How likely are you to recommend" rating.
5
Shahram Great visit as usual. Got great service and I always appreciate the care taken with my car.
5
Micky Had a great experience. Very professional and courteous.
4
Mark Larry's got the jobs done and the price is very reasonable. The shop knowledge with the mechanical issues
5
Anon I appreciate the alerts to anticipate future maintenance repair needs. thanks for handling the smog chck
5
Anon Appear to be honest and very satisfied with the repair completed
4
David Larry continues to show me he's honorable and trust worthy. When I bring my car to him, I know i'll get honest and good quality work from him. These are qualities that are difficult to find in a mechanic and certainly not from any dealership. Thanks for another job well done Larry!
5
Carol Going to Larry's Automotive is as good as going to your dealer's shop. Thoroughly professional service without the hassle. This was my second visit, both 100% satisfactory in every way.
5
Laurie Full inspection of my vehicle showed it needs multiple repairs. Larry was very honest about what absolutely needed to be repaired and what didn't. His shop was very thorough and response time was excellent!
5
Anon Larry provides excellent and friendly service. He translates mechanical terms so a person that is not mechanical like me can understand. First time customer but plan to go there regularly. Found him with web search and am pleased I did.

Aaron My visit to Larry`s as always is pleasant and nice. The driver that took me home and picked me up was polite and friendly. The work done to my vehicle was completed by the time promised. I never have any problems when I visit Larry`s Independent Service. Keep up the great work!!
5
Dave and Denise Prompt service. Very knowledgeable about my vehicle. Recommended current and future maintenance needs. Would definitely recommend to friends. Thanks!
5
Rick As always, Larry and his team delivers with a smile and on time. LIS rocks!
5
Sandie Larry ALWAYS takes care of my car. I've had my brakes done, tune-ups, etc. The wait is never long, I always make an appointment and they always take good care of me. Larry even has a car that you can rent for the day so you don't miss work or can utilize to run your errands while he works on your car. I'm so happy I found you Larry! And, Bob your awesome!
5
Debbie they did a great job.
5
Anon Larry's always does great work and their pricing is fair.

Ken and Ashley Great job as always. It's never fun when your car needs repair, but I know I'm in good hands whenever something comes up. Thanks again guys!
5
Merry You guys are great! Thanks for always taking good care of my car. And I will see you again!!

Anon Muffler required repair: Larry's: $2800 Ace Muffler Westminster: $70 Otherwise very friendly
5
Tim & Nancy Timely appointment, good service, accurate estimate what could be better for auto service?
5
Al My first visit exceeded expectations. I opted to have my 60K service done at Larry's. It was the first time I had not had the car serviced at the dealer, so I was not sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised to know that a loan car was available or shuttle if needed. Knowing the shop was open the 2nd Sat. of each month was very convenient and allowed me to drop the car off on a Friday afternoon and pick it up Sat. morning.The service was completed as per the manufacturers specifications and the cost was well below the dealer's estimate. Ironically the one glitch I experienced was actually the most impressive part of my visit. I drive a specialty car and the oil used in the maintenance (which Larry's preservice software specified) was not the manufacturers' recommendation. I noticed this when I got home and called back. Bob checked it out , obtained the oil and within two hours I was back in the shop, had the oil changed and was on my way. I felt partially responsible for the oversight as I did not bring any prior service records or emphasize the recommended oil when I dropped the car off. I was wiling to pay for the oil or for the oil change. Larry's would have none of that wanting the job done right and the customer satisfied. The shop strived to please and impress and it did. Assuming the car performs like i think it will after the service, I will make Larry's my future home not only for my car but my wife's. Again, an impressive first visit and I totally enjoyed the experience. Al Ferazzi

Candy Excellent work and customer service, as always!

Austin Excellent service and staff and you can trust that their giving it to you straight, which is hard to find nowadays.
5
Rudy you need a TV in the lobby for those who wish to wait for their cars but other than that, as always you guys came in under budget and were very prompt and courteous.
5
Larry Excellent and knowledgeable service. Performed requested service and advised of other needed service that dealer missed.
5
Anon Took care of everything I needed for my car.
5
Nerio I like this business. It is close by where I live and they are honest people. They have earned my loyalty. No need to go elsewhere. I recommend this shop.
5
David This was my second visit but this time it was for my son. The guys at Larry's were awesome. This is my sons first car so without having prior experience dealing with car problems, Larry's guys took care of him and made it a pleasant experience and did more than was expected. My family mechanic is now "Larry's Independent Service". Thanks Guys!!
5
Brian The breaks on my care were repaired s per their estimate and delivered on time.
5
Brian Larry's is very competent, efficient and honest. I trust their work and their prices are fair.
5
Dan Larry and the team did an awesome job and my SUV is quiet again and running great! Thank you as well for saving the wheel hub and saving my money!
5
Jan and Chris The service was great as always!
5
Ann Friendly staff, clean waiting room with Wifi, & scheduling service was easy & quick. Top notch customer service
5
Eric Larry's team did an excellent job getting my 1975 Chevy Blazer tuned up and ready for the road. The initial plan was to simply get something we believed was fully restored road ready and tuned up. It turned out that there were a lot of little details that we had missed during the restoration. Fortunately, Larry's team provided expert service and found all of the little bugs and got my Blazer ready for the road and car shows. His team takes the time necessary to do a project or repair correctly. They also use high quality parts which I really appreciate. I highly recommend Larry, Paul, Bob and the rest of the team. Excellent work on my Blazer. So happy to be driving it.
5
David I trust larry
5
Anon Outstanding! Very organized. Gives you a feeling of confidence in there ability. The end result is a good serving of your vehicle. A well run business.
5
Ed Great service as always
5
Jim Went in for an oil change which was priced very reasonably and was done very quickly. During the oil change they found a leaking water pump which I wasn't aware of. Good job.
5
Debbie always does a great job
5
Anne Having a knowledgeable, honest auto mechanic to rely on, is as valuable as a great financial consultant, or tax accountant. I'm happy to have been referred to Larry and his staff. There was a few different concerns with my vehicle when I brought it to them. They listened, asked the right questions, ran the right tests and explained the services that I should address now, and ones I should address in the near future. Prices were upfront and reasonable. Service was outstanding. Thanks Guys!
5
Neil & Debbie Great job.
5
Mark and Leisa I was able to make an appointment for a Saturday and Larry's Independent Service got my car in and out on time. I got a great deal and they let me know what repairs I should prepare for in the future given my car's mileage. My daughter and I had a fun time in the lobby guessing flavors of the Jelly Belly jellybeans that they sell. Best time in the lobby of a mechanic ever!
5
Rick Larry's Independent services both of our cars. Always friendly, on time, and our cars are happy too. Thanks to the staff @ LIS.
5
Anon Hello, I am new to the area and that means searching out a new trustworthy mechanic for my cars. I made several calls around to get my jeep looked at and Larry was the only person who suggested that we do some tests to determine the root of the problem versus just throwing money and parts at it. So glad I found this Auto Mechanic as I plan on taking all of my cars here for a very long time. Very friendly staff, clean shop and took the time to show me exactly what is happening with the internal workings of my 2006 Grand Cherokee.
5
David that if left unattended would have caused undue wear of tires and poor handling. Their dedication to your safety is commendable.
5
Jan and Chris We always have great service when we take our vehicles to the shop. We really appreciate you staying late to get the truck done for us!
5
Eric Aweosme! I took my truck in for a brake inspection. Larry went top to bottom and found an issue that was unrelated. He was prompt in calling me and after he researched the problem through Toyota s service advisories, we decided to watch it and discuss the repair at a later date. Honesty is a huge customer service part of the job and its hard if not impossible to find an honest shop. Go see Larry... Only problem is ..if you all go it will be crowded! PS the shops clean
5
Thomas good service, reliable and trustworthy
5
Jeff We presented Larry and his team with a tough challenge on our 1993 Infiniti. Not only did they stick with it until they came up with a solution, they gave me several options and kept the costs in mind. I would definitely recommend Larry's to anyone who wants honesty and fairness in a mechanic.
5
Neta no comment
5
Gloria I finally found a mechanic I trust to replace my old mechanic that retired about a year ago. I went to my old mechanic for about 20 years, and he was very trustworthy and took care of my car. Since I am a single woman, it has not been easy to find a mechanic that was not talking down to me and ripping me off. I have been lost for about a year searching for a mechanic, which is just like trying to find a good doctor. I feel very lucky I found Larry's Independent Service to be trustworthy and reliable and take care of me like my old mechanic who retired always did. I already recommended Larry's Ind. Service to my neighbor, and she will be also going to Larry's as soon as it is time to change her oil.
5
Ann Friendly & knowledgeable staff, clean waiting room, & fast!
5
Walter and Jean Great job at a fair price! No reason to look anywhere else.
5
Anon Bob went out of his way to get the car fixed the same day because we needed to use it that night. Instead of just ordering the part, he drove to pick it up so we could get the car back. Great job.
5
Todd Always a great experience and feel like I can really trust Larry and his crew. Thanks for taking great care of our vehicles.
5
Dan Professional and friendly experience at a competitive price! I will come back.
5
Andrea Great service as always--thanks guys!
5
Julie Awesome as usual!!
5
Jan and Chris We always have great service when we take our vehicles to Larry's! That is why we are still driving our '92 Toyota pickup!!
5
We brought in an older Toyota (1994) that didn't pass smog. Larry Ray, the owner and Bob his assistant got right to work on it and quickly identified the issues. Once they let me know, with a quick phone call, what the issue was and how much it would cost to fix they went right to work. By the end of the day they let me know the car was already to go. The service was excellent and I'll happily refer Larry's Independent to my friends and clients.
5
Chris It isn't ever fun to take your car in for repairs. However Larry's always makes it a postive experience. The whole team is always very friendly and helpful. They go above and beyond the required service. Thank you Larry and your team.
5
Judy Everyone is professional and pleasant... my car almost purrs!!! THANK YOU
5
Eric 5 stars.. Larrys staff is professional, courteous and delivered on time. They fixed my problem with my AC and found an issue with my ABS system that other mechanics had not. Finally my car is running perfect....I would highly recommend going to Larry's.
5
Brian Honest quality service at a fair price.
5
Debbie you always to a great job! Thanks
5
Bruce My experience at larry's independent was everything that it should be.Bob was very courteous and knowledgable about what I needed.I was given an estimate and was told that depending on time involved,,it might not be as much as estimated.They found the problem and advised me that it was covered by my manufacture warranty.Although they didn't do the repair,I found them very honest and would recommend them to anyone.My bill was half of what was estimated.Awesome!!!!!!
5
Mark and Leisa What I loved about Larry's Independent Service was that I felt safe and I could trust their recommendations. I had gotten advice from another company and I didn't feel right about their recommendation for my car. I took it to Larry, they looked through everything and told me the items that were most important to preserve the life of my car. I plan to get to 200,000 miles instead of getting a brand new car right away. They helped me do that by giving my car what it needs to live longer. I didn't feel like they were just trying to rack up my charges, they took time and gave me a solid recommendation.
5
Sandie I have never been disappointed with the service and care that my vehicle has been given each time I take it to Larry's. Bob is always pleasant and takes that extra mile to make sure you fully understand what work is being performed. I recently had my rear brakes replaced. I scheduled my appointment for 9:00 a.m. and was out the door at 10:15 a.m.! I love it! It was faster than sitting at the DMV. My next trip will be for a tire aligment, as I need to purchase two tires, next replace the transmission fluid. You can bet that I will be back for the last remaining items on my list. Thank you for excellent service and most importantly I appreciate your honesty and estimates. For someone who depends on one income, my own. Larry's makes it possible for me to make sure my car is well taken care of and will last me at least another 10 years. Just one suggestion; it might help to indicate what type of models and makes of vehicles that you work on. I will definintely recommend Larry to friends. You have a great team working for you Larry. Thank you all!
5
Larry First time - great experience! Going back for more :-)
5
Ed I sew their add on the internet and thought I would try they. WOW Bob and Larry were fantastic, they walked me threw what was wrong with my car and it now runs like new. Very competitive prices. I will be going back for my auto needs.
5
Carol My first visit ... so far so good. Really. These guys are professionals, every bit as good as a dealership (and roughly as expensive, but SO convenient!). They are in the neighborhood, minutes away from my home, no hassles, friendly, Toyota-trained mechanics ... what's not to like.
5
Larry, Travis and Bob are highly knowledgeable and keep the client informed at every step in the process. Even though some of the news may not be pleasant, they take a caring approach and discuss the options so the client can make an informed decision. Further, the mechanic staff are friendly and helpful as possible when interacting with the clients. Overall the visits there far surpass similar visits elsewhere.
4
Anon They did a thorough job at a decent price.
5
Joe Very professional people. Outstanding customer service. Recommend Larry's Independent Service, the best in Orange County.
5
Kevin Larry's guys are very informitive and knolagable, they met evey time line they promised and there were no last second $ supprises. The origanal quote was actualy more then what i payed at the end. Larry's is not around to rip people off they provide a good service at a good price and I will be usig them again!!
5
David The shop replaced a previously installed part that failed without charge that was no fault of their own. No labor charges.

Anon Excellent
5
Anon Everything on the car was well taken care of and thank you for both the ride to work and the pizza promotion. We had the pizza this weekend from Cicero's - it was great.
5
David Another well done repair, plus finding and repairing a problem that improves the auto's performance. I appreciate the thoroughness of your inspections as it finds problems that could be more costly to repair at a later date, especially when it pertains to operator safety. KUDOS! David R. Welden
5
David Thanks for a job well done guys
4
Rudy very pricey fix but these guys did it right and they have a warranty that is very good. at least I will not be stranded out in the middle of know where. thanks guys
5
Anon Thanks For Your Excellent Work And Reasonable Pricing! Very Satisfied Customer, And Well Return!
5
Sandie The customer service that your shop provides is first class! Bob greeted me as I arrived. Phoned me to let me know the status of my car and it was ready to be picked up in a matter of two hours. My car feels like it did when I drove it off the lot. Based on Bob's assessment, I made another appointment for the next service.my neighbor was with me and is going to bring her car to have your team work on her car. Thank you!
5
Jan and Chris Travis and Bob were great! We always get good service at Larry's. So glad you are open one Saturday a month which is convenient for our schedules!
5
Anon My wife and I had a top notch excellent experience with our 2003 Toyota Tundra. All the staff and in particular Larry are very caring and very detailed in explaining all aspects of our service.
3
Anon From damage sustained in an accident, my radio was able to receive only one station.The last time my vehicle was in the shop floor guys tried to change it and now I get none. Further, when my friend left her vehicle for an oil change, an over aggressive new front office person recommended repairs that would have cost more than the vehicle was worth.
5
Jim Great job. Fixed the problem quickly.
5
Andrea Always great! Larry's is the kind of shop where they know you by name, are fair with their pricing, and thorough with their work. I actually enjoy taking my car to Larry's for service because the guys are so pleasant and helpful!
5
Lincoln As usual the service was excellent and completed in a timely manner.
5
Jim Very professional shop. The staff was friendly & helpful. The work was completed in a timely manner & at a reasonable price. I never felt like I was being "upsold". I will be a returning customer.
5
Anon Thank you for taking me without an appointment! You all are very courteious and and nice!
5
Anon I am very happy with the service I received. They provided communication throughout and when it wasn't possible to finish in a day provided a loaner for my convenience. I strongly feel they are honest, knowledgeable and go the extra mile to provide good service.
4
Anon They did quick check and found it was only the gas cap loose. No charge and didnt try to embarrass me. Yea!
5
Rudy thanks for your quick service .
5
Debbie Larry's did a great job as always!!
5
David Thank you guys for finding that "LOUD' thump when we went over a bump in the road. DUH ! There it was, right in front of me every time i opened my trunk. Who'd of thought that the steering wheel security locking bar would make that much noise. It now rests on two small pillows, and for fixing the bothersome clanks in the exhaust system under warranty. Especially looking out for our safety in finding the worn-out bushings in the rear end. We really count on you all to keep our autos safe. Sometimes I feel that all we care about is "How much is this going to cost me" instead of "Thank you for saving me greater cost down the road and keeping me safe". Thanks guys!!! David & Lorain Welden I give you a 9/10, there is always room for improvement.
5
Bill & Sharon Excellent service and recommendations! These guys are the best of the best at what they do:)
5
Judy Great!!!
5
Jeff Work was done quickly and helped me pass smog. They found several other things that were wrong with the car (none too surprising), but there was no pressure to do anything other than what I asked for.
5
Bob Very fast service.
5
Mark GREAT
5
Ralph Great doing business with you. Great service!
5
Jane I've forgotten how many years ago I started to have Larry service my cars....25 there abouts. Larry has always been honest and has always provided the very best in care and service. Even though I live farther away than most of his customers, I still have his staff do the necessary work on my cars. \",jherriges@cox.net Merry,Ogg,2013-05-16,false,5.0,10,Hi guys

5
Ron Larry's Independent provides the best service and support for all my automotive needs. The only place I have been going to for over a dozen years .
5
Susan and Jim You guys are great! Much better than a mechanically inclined husband. I've been with Larry for over 15yrs and many different autos. They can perform any service, why would I subject myself to the dealer? They are professional, nice, clean and fun loving. You can send your teen aged daughter or grandmother in and feel that she will be taken care of and the job will be done right.
5
Anon Quick, easy, reasonable, and waiting for my car was nice. All of the men were pleasant and funny. Thanks! I'll be back
5
Andrea Love Larry's team of service professionals! I especially appreciate that they were sure to keep me notified of issues discovered and provided alternatives that were less expensive. GREAT JOB GUYS!!! Thanks!
1
Glen Larry's held themselves out as Jeep specialists, something that I specifically looked for in a service facility. But after 3 days, they were unable to identify the fuel and ignition problem with my Grand Cherokee, something another Jeep specialist was able to identify within an hour (after I had to pay $115 to tow my vehicle to the other specialist. And yet, Larry's still charged me the full $100+ diagnostic fee.
5
Mary Great experience
5
David This company diligently inspects the auto and informs the owner of problems that are serious and that would be a major problem in the future. They are tenacious in repairing correctly. Personaly they have found problems and repaired them at my request that in no doubt would have put myself and family in jeopardy because of a mechanical failrue. If thwey had a motto it in all likelyniss say"Keep it safe, Keep it running". David Ray Welden
5
Derek Great and speedy work, thank you.
5
Tom Larry's service was up to my highest expectations. a very professional group. The service rep walked me thru the repairs I needed, explained the cost and his recommendations.I never felt pressured Larry gave me ample time to pick up my car and was very tolerant since ti took me several days to come in to pay and to pick up my car.
5
Kelli as always, Larry and the guys are thorough and honest. Pricing is fair and the service is impeccable. I feel like family when I'm there!
5
Jill These guys are honest and trustworthy and help you and do at home pick ups when your vehicle is ready
5
Andrea Love the team at Larry's! Professional, thorough, and not out to sell repairs that aren't needed. As always, thanks guys!
5
Deborah & Ed I have been a customer for over 15 years. Larry and his staff have provided honest, reliable, and courteous service.
5
Need to know progress more often.

Rudy When the owner and name sake of the the business take the time to drive you home, you know this is a place that wants your business and takes care of its customers. larry and crew are rock stars of the car care business.

Anon Staff was courteous, work was completed on time and they have WIFI
5
Anon I love the honesty of the people at Larry's shop. I had an issue with my car that I thought would cost thousands. I was ready to pay, then they told me the work was not really necessary. Wow! What kind of business turns down money like that? A super honest one! Go, Larry and staff!
5
Aaron My experience? A class act!! Professional, polite and friendly..They have the best Master Technician in orange county..Paul Galante. Thanks 4 ur quality work.. The most important thing outside of the good wrk, is my car was returned to me clean...no grease or finger prints. Thanks..and see you soon! Aaron

James & Kiyomi Larry and his team are real professionals. Courteous and knowledgeable, they identified the problem and gave me options without the sales pressure.

5
Martha Very efficient and friendly - also gave referral on tire purchase for next time. Very upfront on immediate repairs needed and what can wait.
4
David Hello, This isn't the first time I've gotten the car back with a "Mechanic" smell inside. It's smells like anti-freeze or transmission fluid whenever I pickup my car. I also notice the steering wheel and transmission knob have residue on them. I shouldn't have to clean up after you guys or have my car smell like a mechanic slept in it. Thanks
5
Jeff Very very professional. They keep me informed and are very straight forward. Highly recommended.
5
Georgia A most plesant experience! Friendly, informative, and priced reasonably. I will be going back for all my Toyota service needs!
4
Bill First, let me say that I trust you and your workmanship. My only comment is that I was quoted one price and gave my approval. Later in the day, I got a call that the price had to be adjusted upward for a good reason, I presume. It is disconcerting to get a quote after you have inspected the car and then have it raised. This is not the first time this has happened. It makes one uncomfortable when dropping off your car. Bill Roland
4.5
Neta This is my first service with you and I am very satisfied. I plan to use your services again. Thank you
5
Jan and Chris As always, I got good service at Larry's. The truck was serviced right on time. We are always happy with the work that is done on our vehicles at Larry's and would not go anywhere else!
5
David Needed emergency service on my car prior to a vacation. Larry arranged a ride home after I dropped off the car so that I could continue my vacation preparations, and picked me up when the work was done. And, as always, the work was completed professionally and for a fair price.
5
Anon Larry's team found the problem to the gas leak in my car that has been an issue for 2 years (and the Nissan dealership repair folks couldn't find even after 3 service visits for the same issue). It's been 2 days since the repair and we haven't smelled gas yet! We will definitely use Larry's again!

5
Great job as always! Thanks for your help.
3
Kodie I do appreciate your help in fixing my Acura, and your willingness to give me a loaner car while mine was being worked on. It is hard to give you 5 stars as the expense was huge and seemed to rise every time you called with an update. Your company has serviced this car for years, again my thanks is given, but the car always seems to take longer than a day and the parts always seem to be a delaying factor. The estimate is another thing that doesn't seem to ever be close to the actual cost for repair.
5
Cheryl & Florian Called Larry as one of those symbols popped up on the dash board. He told me to come in an hour!! Plus they did an oil change,tested the hoses and rotated my tires at the saem time!!! great service
5
Anon my car was diagnosed and repaired as promised at a fair price. would recommend Larry's to anyone looking for a good automotive repair shop.
5
Bea Thanks for an enjoyable experience @ Larry's Independent Service. Staff was very friendly & informative. Thanks again, B

Mark I had my vehicle serviced for issues with it starting. The problem was "fixed" after three days of troubleshooting and a few hundred bucks. Four hours after paying for the service and driving my car home the issue arose again. It was after business hours and I called and left a message and Larry called me back the first thing Saturday morning! Larry went above and beyond to correct the mishap. After another two days my vehicle was fixed correctly and I have not had the issue again.
5
Sharon my first experience with Larry's has been great and I am going back and I thank you all for treating me with such kindness respect and caring about my issues at hand see yahs soon for the rest of what I need done thank you for being good to me I pray we continue on as we are so far great service and jobs well done :)
5
Sharon You have all won my heart being on a low income its difficult for me but you have been so kind with my AAA CARD and helping me understand what the most important things should be handled to keep me safe on the road is greatly appreciated thank you all for being there for me Sharon T.
5
Amber So I found out I was leaking GAS late Wednesday evening and in a panic I rushed over to Larry's and was greeted by Travis. He was very kind and uplifting. He kept me calm and assured me that Brett would call me in the morning. Sure enough Brett called right away the next day and walked me through the repair process and pricing. I received my car the same day!The price was affordable and the service was prompt,not to mention their work is guaranteed! My car runs GREAT! I will never go anywhere else now.... THANKS GUYS!
5
Ken This is only my second visit to Larry's, but they've always done consistently good work. They communicate well with me and take into account that the car I drive is older (155K miles) and know what to prioritize. I have recommended them to others, and I know I will be back.
5
Jill these guys are always professional and do a very thorough job at a reasonable price. I recommend them to everyone.
4.5
Lisa Thank you to Larry and his team who made my first experience at the shop memorable. The service was excellent and my car is running smooth. I'll definitely return for future maintenance.
2.5
Nate When I asked if the window could be rolled up manually and not repaired at this time, the answer was that it would cost about the same as repairing it to do that. Well when I left the shop Monday I drove to a friends place and he had the window rolled up and locked in the up position in about 15 min. So with that said, it makes me question everything I was told. If I wasn't already financially obligated to return here for a repair awaiting ordered parts, I would not be returning.
5
Jennifer Always a pleasure to have you guys work on my car - I'm going to miss you! Jennifer
5
Andrea Once again, Larry and his team made my little Nissan feel like new. I feel confident driving away from his shop knowing that everything i've asked for has been completed and I didn't get charged for extras I didn't need. Thanks guys! Andrea D.

Diana I was recommended to Larry's Independent by a friend. I went in to have my oil changed and everything looked at because I was long overdue. Well thankfully I did that. Their mechanic discovered a nail in the sidewall of my new tire. While I wasn't happy to have to buy a another new tire, it sure beats having a blow out on the freeway. I had other issues as well, so def glad I went in! The whole operation was very thorough and professional. I now have a new mechanic:).

Ary I was a bit dissappointed with the time it took to get back to me regarding what was wrong with the car. I dropped my car off at 9:15 am and had to call 3 times to see what's going on and finally they had an answer for me by 3:30. At that time I decided I will take my business else where. Also what I was quoted by Brett verses another place was about is $385 difference. That's a huge price difference for the same work . Thank you Travis for giving me ride to work.

Rick Our experience at LIS was great as usual! They were quick and attentive in servicing our Lexus and kept my wife and 4 y/o son occupied while they waited in their wi-fi waiting room. We don't ever consider going anywhere else. Thanks Travis and staff @ LIS!! Rick & Tami Moscoso

David When the A/C electronic control computer card went bad, Larry knew the only repair person in SO. CA. that could fix it on my '96 Linc. T/C. Kudos for Larry.

Mary Continue to have good experience with Larry's Independent Service. Work is done in a reliable, professional way.

Dave and Denise High level of customer service.
5
Frances Accountable and good customer service.
5
Jim & Nancy Thanks for the service. For people that dont know all the mechanics of a car, its great to feel like your being taken care of without being taken advantage of. We brought the '93 in for an overall check before it goes to college with my son, and ended up leaving the '05 for a check up as well. Thanks for the honest help. Jim
5
Steve I couldn't be happier with Larry's. The staff truly cares about its customers and goes out of its way to accomodate them. Unlike oil change businesses, Larry's can be trusted to recommend only needed services without trying to upsell the order. The quality of work is outstanding, prices are reasonable, standards are high, the staff is friendly, and the business runs with tremendous pride. I highly recommend this shop!

David A no hassel replacemen of a faulty part in a speedly manner. Also finding a "noise" and repairing so as not to reoccur. The service inspection that they preform finds problens that if not attended to would have been considerly more expensive, they have kept my auto in running condition for over 190,000 miles.
5
Cheryl & Florian Decided to go to Larry's instead of the dealership for routine service. Saved $$ !!. Plus Larry's staff is super nice and very flexible. Women are treated with courtesy and respect--very trust wothy

Howard And Joanne They are doing a really, really good job. They are reliable and I do not feel like they are trying to reach into my pocket and take my money. Seem to be honest and trustworthy and nice guys on top of it.

John I would like to say service was completed in a very timely manner. I also would like to say that Brett is very helpful with my vehicle needs. I told him about one of my driving lights being loose and they checked on it. He told me that the bracket was loose and it was fixed. Thank You guys for being a good Vehicle Service Center It Hard to find good people to deal with in today market.

Lisa If I could give less than half of a star, I would. My car has been at Larry's off and on for the past 30 days. The last stretch was a full two weeks. I was never offered a loaner, nor was an offer made to pay for car rental for any part of that time; not even one day. My life has literally been turned upside down from my experience at Larry's. I have missed classes, driven an hour out of my way every day for two weeks to share a car with my boyfriend, and still do not have a fixed car. The day I finally picked it up, the engine light came on. After spending $3K, I could have made a down payment on a new car. My old car is not even close to worth that. I am writing this to save others from what I have gone through.
5
Darlene * Larry's took my car in for rear brakes on the day that I called. They gave me a ride home because I didn't have one-no waiting. Friendly staff. No surprises or extra charges. I left Larry's with a feeling that my car had been well taken care of by experienced service technicians.

Mack Made an appointment on line (easy). Received confirmation email. Dropped off car (in/out in less than 10 minutes). Received call that it was ready (early). Cashier honored $15 coupon that had expired 10 days earlier. I TAKE MY HONDA CIVIC HYBRID NOWHERE ELSE!
5
James & Kiyomi Windshield wipers were banging all around, and there was an aweful clicking sound when i made sharp turns. Had wiper motor, and new axle installed. Larry's team was very knowledgeable and friendly, and went out of their way to accommodate my schedule (Travis even dropped the car back at my work...in the pouring rain, no less). The car sounds/runs great now. If you want great service, at a reasonable price, I highly recommend Larry's Independent Service.
5
Mike Took care of my hybrid civic in a quick and professional manner.

Anon This is a wonderful auto repair shop. Everyone is very polite, respectful, and professional. They take good care of your car and always fix it right the first time. I highly reccommend it!

Fred I had my 2010 Lexus serviced and am very pleased. The work was done promptly and my vehicle was ready when promised.

Shahram Excellent service as always. They really cater to my OCD about clean and tidy work. They returned my car to me as clean as they received it. Always a great experience. Thanks.
5
Nan Great job! I called for an emergency appointment, and was taken right in. They called with information throughout the day, with prices and what needed to be done. It was all completed in one day and I feel it was a very fare price. Larry, and all the people there, are friendly, competent and I'm always happy to recommend them!

Virginia(Ginger) It was great that you found my car safe, how ever. it is still making the noise. At this point, I believe it is the substandard brakes the last garage put on, and charged me 100.00 more than the dealer and not Lexus brakes. Do you use Lexus brakes, I have decided after trying 2 different (better?) brakes according to the garage, but out of major disapointment, and bad sounding brakes, must stick with Lexus brakes. I will come see you in a few months when there are nearly at the end. I appreciate your honesty. It is hadr to find these days. Sincerely Ginger

Anon Everyone at Larry's Independent Service is exceptional. They're friendly, professional, and kind. It's a pleasure doing business with them. I highly recommend them!
5
Paul Thanks for the prompt quality service. Everything is working fine.

Erik Timing and proper completion was trouble some at first. Nevertheless, Larry and his team fixed the problem after receiving the car back in a not completed condition. They definitely take responsibility for their mistakes and do their best to fix the problem and in the end, earn my trust to be a future customer.
5
Dustin Larry's Independent Auto did a fantastic job of customer service and quality work for my vehicle. I highly recommend.
5
Christine As always, I'm very happy with my service. For over 20 years Larry's is the only place my husband and I will trust with our cars. Our cars last, run well, are dependable, no surprises and we credit Larry's for that. I wouldn't take my car any place else.
5
Julie They are awesome. They reminded me about my windshield wipers needing to be replaced. Worked out great for me - it rained a couple of days later and I could see out my windshield.
5
Anon Thankyou for the Great Service!! Hesitant about trying someone new. Read other reviews and you lived up to it! Always went to the dealer in the past. Will reccomend to others.

Sharon & Greg Larry and Travis have been doing a great job taking care of my car. They make our car driving safe because we know our car is well-maintained and totally cared for.

Caroline I love going to Larry's. They always take care of my car well and keep me informed of what I need to do next. They won't pressure you, but simply inform you, and their pricing is very reasonable.
5
Candy Larry's is always quick and professional
5
Mike Pleased with the great service and that they went out of their way to get me an appointment the next day. I will definitely be giving them my business again. It didn't hurt that they were cheaper than the dealership as well.
5
Shahram NEVER disappointed with Larry's Independent!!!
4.5
Anon We brought our Passat in and they worked through all the issues and did not seem as if they tried to throw anything extra in that we didn't need. They were professional and friendly throughout the process and acted as if they truly appreciated our business. The pricing was fair and we will return.
4.5
Larry's is fantastic, but there was a minor communication error between the writer and the mechanic on the last visit.
5
Kathy Young I was quoted $1500 for replacing a radiator and a thermostat from the Mazda dealership. Larry did the job for 1/2 the price. Great Service !!! BEST PRICE IN TOWN !Quick service I will take all my cars to Larry from here on.
5
Pete Larry's has been taking care of all my vehicles since my father-in-law retired and sold his shop 12 years ago (I was spoiled). Larry, Travis, Scot, Emerson and crew are totally on top of their game. When a shop tells you all you needed was a wheel balance when you're convinced you needed an alignment (where most shops would have just gone ahead and sold you an alignment, has earned my trust and my business.

Joe You guys always go the exta mile, literaly! Thanks for all the extra care and attention.

Rick & Alice Ann Could not have been nicer...completely knowledgable about any questions that I asked. I would, and already have, highly recommended Larry's to other people.
5
Samir First time I took my SUV to Larry. He provided a detailed estimate of all the problems found and sent via email. We agreed on what should be done and he let me know when additional parts were needed. Showed me exactly what parts were replaced and why. I will bring my cars to Larry for future service!
5
Kathy I never question Larry & Travis' decisions (after 10 years) they help customers with sincerity & honesty. They only hire the best mechanics & everyone who works there is nice

Kimberly I took in my Truck before it hit 100,000 miles for a complete tune up and to get it ready to take a 3,000 mile trip pulling a U-haul. They were so thorough and we just got back from the trip. The Truck drove great!! THANK YOU Larry's!!!
5
Anon This team provides the most thorough repairs, with factory-like precision. They give the vehicle owner information with which to make an informed decision, and bring the vehicle as near to factory specs as possible in the maintenance realm. They always road test the vehicle to personally know what the owner is going to experience upon departure. Excellence.
4.5
Sloane Terrific service at reasonable prices-per usual!
5
Norm I have been going to Larry's for all my car maintenance for the past 12-15 years. I am only here in the US for a short period of time currently and my oil change maintenance light came on so I called Larry to see if he could fit me in after my tire rotation down the street. He agreed and I was in and out in less than an hour. Larry's is a high quality organization and does not charge you an arm and a leg. Keep it up Larry. Norm

Bettie Good job! Car runs great.

Rudy went for a scheduled oil and air filter change. all went smoothly. thanks Larry and Travis and all the guys in the back. Rudy

Tom The truck runs like a top. Larry finished it on time and at a reasonable price. I could not be happier.
5
David Always great service! Worked done in a timely manner with great communication.
5
Tama We have been using Larry's Independent Service for over two years and have continued to find them to be the best in service and price and they always honor their warranty promises.
5
Darlene * My car broke down on my way to work about 1:30 PM. AAA towed me to Larry's at my request. AAA informed me that Larry's is a AAA approved facility. My car was ready for pick up at 10:30 am the next day. Not only did I get the problem fixed but Larry told me about my rear brakes needing replacement soon. Larry does quality work for a reasonable price. Their customer service is also awesome! It's a relief to know that I can count on Larry's to take care of my car.
5
Sean Very courteous, no gimmicks. Over the past couple of years I have brought everything to Larry's Independent, from my diesel RV, to my exotic vehicles. No joy-riding of the vehicles took place, no sifting through the vehicles. Can't go wrong with going here
5
Anon They provided fast service and were up front as to cost and reasons service was needed
4
John I bought a new/used car and needed to get it checked out. Larry's was great about checking out my vehicle and performing the service I asked for. Seems like their prices are better than if you went to a dealership and did the same thing. They are a little difficult to find but worth a little extra driving around to locate. They are just about the friendliest repair shop I've ever experienced and will even drive you home if you're close enough, in their own car. I've already told some friends about them. If you're live in the area, you should give them a try. I will definitely give them more of my business.
5
John And Leslie The staff was friendly and accommodating. The service was excellent. They were able to take me home and pick me up while they worked on my car.
5
Michael Larry, Travis and their team are among the stars. These guys really will treat you right
5
Andrew & Charmaine I've taken my car and my son's truck to Larry's for repairs several times. They are very professional and courteous, but perhaps more importantly, they know cars very well. They take the time to investigate and explain whatever the problem is and then they fix it right the first time. They are always honest, friendly, and reliable. I highly recommend Larry's Independent Service.

Sloane I have been bringing my vehicles to Larry's Independent Service for nearly fifteen years and have always had an excellent experience. Whether it's a simple oil change or more complex engine work, I know I can count on Larry, Travis, and the staff to do their very best work. More importantly, I know I can trust them, and as a woman who is out of her element when it comes to car repair this is beyond priceless.
5
Anon I brought in my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee which had a number of problems, including flickering lights. Larry's quickly identified the problem, fixed it in a timely manner, and serviced the rest of my car. Will definitely choose in the future.

Kodie I thank the technicians at Larry's for the extra time they provided after closing at 5:30pm to finish my car and return it to me. I appreciate the friendly service. Kodie Salter

Mike I HAVE BEEN BRINGING MY LEXUS AND HONDA TO LARRY'S INDEPENDENT SERVICE FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS. THEY PROVIDE THE BEST SERVICE IN TOWN AND HAVE VERY REASONABLE RATES. GIVE THEM A CALL AND SEE WHY.
5
Anon Great service and top notch work. If you want it done right, this is the place. No hassles and no surprises, everything is laid out in a clear and friendly manner.
5
Ken and Ashley Always a pleasure bringing my Prius in to Larry's. Great job again from Natalie to everyone else. Thanks again.
5
Bill Great service. Called Larry & my car was picked up at my work and was done at the end of the day. Great service.
2
Donna I asked for a oil change, new oil filter, and a new air filter. I did not get the new air filter or an explanation of why they could not put one in. In addition, they adjusted the air pressure in my tires without asking me. The tires were not on the service order and I did not want the air pressure adjusted.
5
David Recently I had a part replaced because it ceased to work properly. The replacement part seemed not to function properly also. Larry's replaced the replacement part at no cost and the new part is working better.
5
Mike I have been taking my cars to Larry's Independent Service for quite some time. I am always more than satisfied with their work. I recommend Larry"s Independent Service to everyone.
5
David Fair, honest, no surprises. Looks after your wellbeing and your autos.

Bill Was very disappointed that our problem with over heating required us to pay you for 2 different fixes...Your guess was the termostat was't working then when it didn't solve the problem you made us pay for a second fix with no adjustment for your mis guess

5
Anon We've been bringing our various family cars to Larry for a decade or more, for minor services and major retrofits, and he and his team have always provided the highest quality service, with honesty and integrity. For our latest visit he found and installed an exact match to replace our broken 16 year old drivers seat to keep our old car usable (and our kid in school) for a little while longer. I can always recommend Larry without reserve.

John Larry's provides the best service in town with prices that are hard to beat! Nice shop, friendly folks, great service!
5
Jose & Mindi I have been a customer 10+ years and can always count on an honest evaluation and excellent workmanship from Larry and Travis' crew. I have done my homework and they are most honest, lowest in cost, and provide excellent workmanship versus local mechanics and dealers. Natalie is on top of it with her friendly reception and prompt updates when I bring my cars in service.
5
Sharon & Greg Great service all around. Thank you Travis, Larry and staff for keeping us safe on the road.
5
Anon I love taking my car to Larry's because everyone who works there is extremely friendly and helpful and I trust them with my car. They have never tried to take advantage of me...as a matter of fact, they have talked me out of service in the past because it wasn't necessary. I trust Larry's Independent Service.

Ernie & Pat It is a pleasure to deal with Larry's Automotive. They're efficient, professional and very fair with their pricing. They take good care of our car.

Diana Larry was honest and did not try to talk us into things that were not needed, which I have had a problem with in the past at other places. He listened to what I thought may be a problem and checked my concerns out. My van is a 2001 and the problems I had have been fixed.

Stephen I came in for a 150k mile check, and ended up needing a fair bit of maintenance done. While I'm not terribly excited about dropping sizable cash on an older vehicle, everyone at Larry's was friendly and honest, and that's exactly what I was looking for. I was especially happy that they made the effort to fix some little things (some missing nuts, squeeky hinges) when the best I could do prior was get people to mention that I should look into fixing/replacing them on my own time/dime. I think for myself and a majority of people not terribly knowledgeable about cars, having someone(s) you can trust, and speak freely with is a pretty nice thing to find, and definitely makes one feel more justified on spending money for car maintenance. In essence, I would have liked to spend less, but it felt warranted.
5
Anon I trust Larry's to take great care of my car.
5
Joe I had to move all the way from New Jersey to California to find the most reputable auto service in America.

Shahram Shahriyarpour If you have a Japanese car, look no further. They will take excellent care of you and your car every time. Do not hesitate to see them.

Image of a deletion review discussion on the English Wikipedia.

A review is an evaluation of a publication, service, or company such as a movie (a movie review), video game (video game review), musical composition (music review of a composition or recording), book (book review); a piece of hardware like a car, home appliance, or computer; or an event or performance, such as a live music concert, play, musical theater show, dance show, or art exhibition. In addition to a critical evaluation, the review's author may assign the work a rating to indicate its relative merit. More loosely, an author may review current events, trends, or items in the news. A compilation of reviews may itself be called a review. The New York Review of Books, for instance, is a collection of essays on literature, culture, and current affairs. National Review, founded by William F. Buckley, Jr., is an influential conservative magazine, and Monthly Review is a long-running socialist periodical.

In academia

A peer review is the process by which scholars or scientists assess the work of their colleagues that has been submitted for publication in the scientific or scholarly literature.

In the scientific literature, review articles are a category of scientific or scholarly paper, which provides a synthesis of research on a topic at that moment in time. A compilation of these reviews forms the core content of review journals. Beyond review articles in review journals, a review may be found in an encyclopedia or a critical book review.

In computer programming and the software development process, a software review may be used.

User review

Main article: User review

A user review refers to a review written by a user or consumer for a product or a service based on her experience as a user of the reviewed product. Popular sources for consumer reviews are e-commerce sites like Amazon or Zappos, and social media sites like TripAdvisor and Yelp. E-commerce sites often have consumer reviews for products and sellers separately. Usually, consumer reviews are in the form of several lines of texts accompanied by a numerical rating. This text is meant to aid in shopping decision of a prospective buyer. A consumer review of a product usually comments on how well the product measures up to expectations based on the specifications provided by the manufacturer or seller. It talks about performance, reliability, quality defects, if any, and value for money. Consumer review, also called 'word of mouth' and 'user generated content' differs from 'marketer generated content' in its evaluation from consumer or user point of view. Often it includes comparative evaluations against competing products. Observations are factual as well as subjective in nature. Consumer review of sellers usually comment on service experienced, and dependability or trustworthiness of the seller. Usually, it comments on factors such as timeliness of delivery, packaging and correctness of delivered items, shipping charges, return services against promises made, and so on.

Consumer reviews online have become a major factor in business reputation and brand image due to the popularity of TripAdvisor, Yelp and online review websites. A negative review can damage the reputation of a business and this has created a new industry of reputation management where companies attempt to remove or hide bad reviews so that more favourable content is found when potential customers do research.

An expert review usually refers to a review written by someone who has tested several peer products or services to identify which offers the best value for money or the best set of features. A bought review is the system where the creator (usually a company) of a new product pays a reviewer to review his new product.

Book review

A book review (or book report) is a form of criticism in which a book is analyzed based on content, style, and merit. It is often carried out in periodicals, as school work, or online. Its length may vary from a single paragraph to a substantial essay. In the case of a work of poetry or fiction, or of nonfiction in which the literary merits of the work are an important element, a review will commonly use the methods of literary criticism. Such a review often contains evaluations of the book on the basis of personal taste. Reviewers, in literary periodicals, often use the occasion of a book review for a display of learning or to promulgate their own ideas on the topic of a fiction or non-fiction work. At the other end of the spectrum, some book reviews resemble simple plot summaries. Reviews of non-fiction works intended for instructional or informational purposes may focus more directly on concerns such as practical usefulness and reader-friendliness.

Music reviews

Performance reviews

Reviews of live music performances are typically short articles that tell readers about the performers or group(s) that were involved and the pieces or songs that were performed. The comments made by reviewers fall, roughly into two categories: technical comments and subjective/artistic comments. The elements in the "technical" category include rhythmic "togetherness", intonation, errors or slip-ups, and so on. These elements are fairly "black and white"; a pianist playing a concerto either played the right notes on a climactic scale run, or she missed it. The subjective comments refer to elements which are a matter of taste. The balance between the different elements in a review (information about the performer or group; information about the pieces/songs; commentary about the technical and subjective elements of the performance) depends on the audience that a music critic is writing for. Music reviewers writing in local newspapers or general-interest magazines may not be able to assume that the readers will be familiar with music performers and pieces/songs, so they may decide to include a great deal of "background" information.

Recording reviews

Music critics and music writers also review recordings of music, including individual songs or pieces or entire albums. In the case of a review of an entire album, the reviewer will not only judge the individual songs or pieces; they will also judge how well all of the songs or pieces work together or go together.

The age of digital downloads may considerably change the album review. Where previously albums were purchased as collections of songs, often with a common theme, the rise of individual song downloads may have significant impact on consumers' exposure to an artist's music. Die-hard fans will most likely continue to explore an artist's complete work; but individuals will most likely make significantly different choices and "cherry-pick" songs they have been exposed to. The concept of "singles" or individual hits marked for retail has been around for long time; however the price for a single in the days of CDs or 45's was much closer to the complete album price. When you consider that each song on an artist's album is often priced at the same amount, the odds of the average consumer purchase the entire album instead of selecting the "hit" songs decreases significantly.

Composition reviews

In Classical music, music critics may also do reviews of compositions, even if the piece or song has never been performed and it only exists on manuscript paper in a score. To review a composition in this fashion, the critic will use music theory skills such as harmonic analysis and thematic analysis, along with their knowledge of idioms and compositional practices.etc

Motion picture, television and video reviews

A motion picture review is a work of film criticism addressing the merits of one or more motion pictures. Generally the term "movie review" implies a work of journalistic film criticism rather than of academic criticism. Such reviews have appeared in newspapers and printed periodicals since the beginning of the film industry, and now are published in general-interest websites as well as specialized film and film review sites. Television programs and other videos are now commonly reviewed in similar venues and by similar methods.

A bought review is the system where the creator (usually a company) of a new product pays a reviewer to review his new product. Primarily used in the car, movie and game industry this system creates a kind of undercover advertising. Bought reviews tend to be biased due to the informative value of reviews. In some cases, a bought review may be independent, if the person that is hired to do the review has a strong reputation for independence and integrity. Even if a "bought review" from a respected critic is actually independent, the perception of potential bias will remain, due to the financial relationship between the company and the critic.

A similar type of review that may be biased is the so-called "puff piece", a review of "[a product]", film, or event that is written by a sympathetic reviewer or by an individual who has a connection to the product or event in question, either in terms of an employment relationship or other links. For example, a major media conglomerate that owns both print media and record companies may instruct one of its employees in one of its newspapers to do a review of an album which is being released by the conglomerate's record company. Although some journalists may assert their professional independence and integrity, and insist on producing an unbiased review, in other cases, writers may succumb to the pressure and pen a biased "puff piece" which praises the product or event while omitting any discussion of any shortcomings. In some cases, "puff pieces" purport to provide a review of the product or event, but instead merely provide "peacock words" ("An amazing recording"); "weasel words" ("probably one of the most important albums of the 2000s") and tabloid-style filler which is peripheral or irrelevant to assessing the qualities of the product or event ("During the filming, there were rumors that romantic sparks flew between the two co-leads, who were often seen talking together on the set").

ONLINE REVIEWS:

A review site is a website on which reviews can be posted about people, businesses, products, or services. These sites may use Web 2.0 techniques to gather reviews from site users or may employ professional writers to author reviews on the topic of concern for the site. Early review sites included Epinions.com and Amazon.com.

Business models

Review sites are generally supported by advertising. Some business review sites may also allow businesses to pay for enhanced listings, which do not affect the reviews and ratings. Product review sites may be supported by providing affiliate links to the websites that sell the reviewed items.

With the growing popularity of affiliate programs on the Internet, a new sort of review site has emerged - the affiliate product review site. This type of site is usually professionally designed and written to maximize conversions, and is used by e-commerce marketers. It's often based on a blog platform like WordPress, has a privacy and contact page to help with SEO, and has commenting and interactivity turned off. It will also have an e-mail gathering device in the form of an opt-in, or drop-down list to help the aspiring e-commerce business person build an e-mail list to market to.

Because of the specialized marketing thrust of this type of website, the reviews are not objective.

Impact

Studies by independent research groups like Forrester Research, comScore, The Kelsey Group, and the Word of Mouth Marketing Association show that rating and review sites influence consumer shopping behavior. In an academic study published in 2008, empirical results demonstrated that the number of online user reviews is a good indicator of the intensity of underlying word-of-mouth effect and increase awareness. In 2007 even large companies such as Best Buy and Walmart began to mention online reviews in television advertisements and on the back of receipts.

Anonymity

Originally, reviews were generally anonymous, and most review sites have policies that preclude the release of any identifying information without a court order. Review sites act as public forums, and are legally protected from liability for the content by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA).

According to Kurt Opsahl, a staff attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), anonymity of reviewers is important. "You couldn't have services like ratings sites or Craigslist or message boards or Amazon.com's user feedback or eBay's reviews of sellers without it."

Beginning approximately 2005, however, consumers became more open with their identity and personal information on review sites. Some sites like those from Yelp, Inc. encourage consumers to use their real names, real photos and personal tags.

Criticism

Most review sites make little or no attempt to restrict postings, or to verify the information in the reviews. Critics point out that positive reviews are sometimes written by the businesses or individuals being reviewed, while negative reviews may be written by competitors, disgruntled employees, or anyone with a grudge against the business being reviewed. So called "reputation management" firms may also submit false positive reviews on behalf of businesses. In 2011, RateMDs.com and Yelp detected dozens of positive reviews of doctors, submitted from the same IP addresses by a firm called Medical Justice.

Furthermore, studies of research methodology have shown that in forums where people are able to post opinions publicly, group polarization often occurs, and the result is very positive comments, very negative comments, and little in between, meaning that those who would have been in the middle are either silent or pulled to one extreme or the other.

Another criticism against sites that rely on income from businesses is that they are reluctant to post negative reviews since that undermines their business model. This leads to a conflict of interest.

Response to criticism

Operators of most review sites acknowledge that reviews may not be objective, and that ratings may not be statistically valid. A FAQ on the Ratingz Inc websites states that, although the ratings are not statistically valid, “They are a listing of opinions and should be judged as such. However, we often receive emails stating that the ratings are uncannily accurate, especially for businesses with over 100 ratings".

Bob Nicholson, a co-founder of Ratingz Inc, goes on to state that "If you get useful information from the ratings, great. That's what we hope happens. If you look at a rating and say, 'Boy, these were obviously all written by the staff in this guy's office', then take it for what it's worth." PersonRatings.com founder Jeremy Stamper echoes this sentiment, advising site users to "take a person ratings profile with a grain of salt."

Rating sites have also put in place algorithms to detect patterns of false reviews; it was one of these algorithms that allowed RateMDs' founder John Swapceinski to detect the phoney reviews posted by Medical Justice.

In same cases government authorities have taken legal actions against businesses that post false reviews. In 2009, the State of New York required Lifestyle Lift, a cosmetic surgery company, to pay $300,000 in fines.

In effort to resolve the issue of biased reviews written by the party itself being reviewed, the Reevoo solution verify whether the person writing the review has actually purchased the product.

Professional review sites

Aside from sites that enable users to post reviews of products and services, there are also those that work on a "professional" or "expert" basis. Some of these sites commission, and pay for, named individuals or bodies with expertise in a particular field to provide their review material, while others hire in-house editorial staff to perform these reviews. By endeavouring to maintain independence and objectivity and allowing their writers' credentials and site ethos to be scrutinised, such sites avoid many of the above-mentioned criticisms aimed at user-review sites. For example, the UK consumer advocacy organisation, the Consumers' Association, offers Which?, a site that carries no advertising but covers all manner of products and services, with reviews and ratings often based on exhaustive independent testing. Another type of review site does not provide free-form text reviews, but instead evaluates a particular class of products, services, or businesses using a set of pre-defined criteria.

However more recent examples of professional review websites are evolving in how they communicate with readers. Sites like ProductHunt.com are designed for visitors to discover products and not primarily find information on ones they are already aware of. The style of community based suggestions by experts and consumers, up-voting entries and ranking them on a leaderboard, is similar to Reddit. But the snippet writing styles and stock imagery has caught on with the public, as it attracted over 350,000 unique visitors in February 2015. A site with similar ambitions is SlinkyStudio.info. It aims to be an online hub for people to discover 'cool, interesting & unique products', by not focusing on just one category and instead features 17. Each product is desirably photographed and reviewed in-depth by a team of writers and not just by one person. The sweeping variety and professional photos, has encouraged high click-throughs. Enabling the site to attract over 100,000 monthly visitors since April 2014.

ABOUT IRVINE CALIFORNIA

Irvine borders Tustin and is an incorporated city in Orange County, California, United States. It is a planned city, mainly developed by the Irvine Company since the 1960s. Formally incorporated on December 28, 1971, the 69.7 square mile (180.5 km˛) city has a population of 202,079 (as of 2007). It has annexed in the past an undeveloped area to the north, and has also annexed the former El Toro Marine Corps Air Station, most of which is to be made into a park called the Orange County Great Park. Currently, Irvine is larger in land area than any other city in Orange County because of its annexation of the southern and eastern unincorporated areas. In June 2007, it was named The Safest City in the United States (Irvine has held the title since 2005)

Irvine is home to the University of California, Irvine (UCI), the Orange County Center of University of Southern California, and the Irvine Campus of Alliant International University, Concordia University, California State University Fullerton, Pepperdine University and Irvine Valley College.

The Irvine Zipcodes are: 92602, 92603, 92604, 92606, 92612, 92614, 92616, 92618, 92619, 92620, 92623, 92650, 92697, 92709, 92710


HISTORY OF IRVINE
Evidence of early campsites and rock shelters in the undeveloped parts of the city puts prehistoric man in the Irvine area at least 12,000 years ago. Irvine was inhabited by the Gabrielino Indians about 2,000 years ago. Gaspar de Portola, a Spanish explorer, came to the area in 1769. This brought on the establishment of forts, missions and herds of cattle. The King of Spain parceled out land for missions and private use. After Mexico's independence from Spain in 1821, the Mexican government secularized the missions and assumed control of the lands. It began distributing the land to Mexican citizens who applied for grants. Three large Spanish/Mexican grants made up the land that later became the Irvine Ranch: Rancho Santiago de Santa Ana, Rancho San Joaquin and Rancho Lomas de Santiago. In 1864, Jose Sepulveda, owner of Rancho San Joaquin sold 50,000 acres (200 km˛) to Benjamin and Thomas Flint, Llewellyn Bixby and James Irvine for $18,000 to resolve debts due to the Great Drought. In 1866, Irvine, Flint and Bixby acquired 47,000-acre (190 km˛) Rancho Lomas de Santiago for $7,000. After the Mexican-American war the land of Rancho Santiago de Santa Ana fell prey to tangled titles. In 1868, the ranch was divided among four claimants as part of a lawsuit: Flint, Bixby and Irvine. The ranches were devoted to sheep grazing. However, in 1870, tenant farming was permitted.

In 1878, James Irvine acquired his partners' interests for $150,000. His 110,000 acres (450 km˛) stretched 23 miles (37 km) from the Pacific Ocean to the Santa Ana River. James Irvine died in 1886. The ranch was inherited by his son, James Irvine, Jr. who incorporated it into The Irvine Company. James, Jr. shifted the ranch operations to field crops, olive and citrus crops. In 1888, the Santa Fe Railroad extended its line to Fallbrook Junction (north of San Diego) and named a station along the way after James Irvine. The town that formed around this station was named Myford, after Irvine's son, because a post office in Calaveras County already bore the family name. The town was later renamed Irvine, however, in 1914.[1] By 1918, 60,000 acres (240 km˛) of lima beans were grown on the Irvine Ranch. Two Marine Corps facilities were built on the ranch during World War II and sold to the government. James Irvine, Jr. died in 1947 at the age of 80. His son, Myford, assumed the presidency of The Irvine Company. He began opening small sections of the Irvine Ranch to urban development. Myford died in 1959. The same year, the University of California asked The Irvine Company for 1,000 acres (4 km˛) for a new university campus. The Irvine Company gave away the requested land and the State purchased an additional 500 acres (2 km˛).
William Pereira, the University's consulting architect, and The Irvine Company planners drew up master plans for a city of 50,000 people surrounding the new university. The area would include industrial, residential and recreational areas, commercial centers and greenbelts. The new community was to be named Irvine; the old agricultural town of Irvine, where the railroad station and post office were located, was renamed East Irvine. The villages of Turtle Rock, University Park, Culverdale, the Ranch and Walnut were completed by 1970. On December 28, 1971, the residents of these communities voted to incorporate a substantially larger city than the one envisioned by the Pereira plan. By January 1999, Irvine had a population of 134,000 and a total area of 43 square miles (111 km˛).

ABOUT ORANGE COUNTY:

Orange County is a county in Southern California, United States. Its county seat is Santa Ana. According to the 2000 Census, its population was 2,846,289, making it the second most populous county in the state of California, and the fifth most populous in the United States. The state of California estimates its population as of 2007 to be 3,098,121 people, dropping its rank to third, behind San Diego County. Thirty-four incorporated cities are located in Orange County; the newest is Aliso Viejo.

Unlike many other large centers of population in the United States, Orange County uses its county name as its source of identification whereas other places in the country are identified by the large city that is closest to them. This is because there is no defined center to Orange County like there is in other areas which have one distinct large city. Five Orange County cities have populations exceeding 170,000 while no cities in the county have populations surpassing 360,000. Seven of these cities are among the 200 largest cities in the United States.

Orange County is also famous as a tourist destination, as the county is home to such attractions as Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm, as well as sandy beaches for swimming and surfing, yacht harbors for sailing and pleasure boating, and extensive area devoted to parks and open space for golf, tennis, hiking, kayaking, cycling, skateboarding, and other outdoor recreation. It is at the center of Southern California's Tech Coast, with Irvine being the primary business hub.

The average price of a home in Orange County is $541,000. Orange County is the home of a vast number of major industries and service organizations. As an integral part of the second largest market in America, this highly diversified region has become a Mecca for talented individuals in virtually every field imaginable. Indeed the colorful pageant of human history continues to unfold here; for perhaps in no other place on earth is there an environment more conducive to innovative thinking, creativity and growth than this exciting, sun bathed valley stretching between the mountains and the sea in Orange County.

Orange County was Created March 11 1889, from part of Los Angeles County, and, according to tradition, so named because of the flourishing orange culture. Orange, however, was and is a commonplace name in the United States, used originally in honor of the Prince of Orange, son-in-law of King George II of England.

HISTORY
Mission Viejo was purchased by John Forster, a Mexican also known as Don Juan. During the Mexican-American War, Forster provided fresh horses to United States military forces which were used on the march of San Diego to retake Los Angeles. Mission Viejo was a hilly region primarily used as cattle and sheep grazing land, since it was of little use to farmers. This city was one of the last regions of Orange County to be urbanized due to its geologic complexity. In 1960, early developers dismissed most of the land in Mission Viejo as simply "undevelopable".[8] Donald Bren, an urban planner who later became the president of the Irvine Company, drafted a master plan which placed roads in the valleys and houses on the hills, and contoured to the geography of the area.[8] The plan worked, and by 1980 much of the city of Mission Viejo was completed. During the late 1970s and the 1980s, houses in Mission Viejo were in such high demand that housing tracts often sold out before construction even began on them.[9] The houses and shopping centers in the city are almost uniformly designed in a Spanish mission style, with "adobe"-like stucco walls and barrel-tile roofs. Many point to Mission Viejo as the first and largest manifestation of Bren's obsession with Spanish architecture. Bren's company was also the creator of the developments in Irvine, and Newport Beach. The company expanded its operations and went on to build the Lakes project in Tempe, Arizona, Mission Viejo Aurora in Colorado and was the initial master planner of Highlands Ranch, both in the Denver Metropolitan area. The seal of the city of Mission Viejo was designed and drawn by Carl Glassford, an artist and former resident of the city.

Sports
Mission Viejo has a major youth athletic facility, Mission Viejo Youth Athletic Park. The park consists of eight baseball fields and five soccer fields. It is host to Little League District 68, AYSO Region 84, and four competitive soccer clubs: Pateadores Soccer Club, Mission Viejo Soccer Club, West Coast Futbol Club, and Saddleback United Soccer Club. The Mission Viejo Nadadores Swimming and Mission Viejo Nadadores Diving Team won a string of national championships and produced a number of Olympians and world record holders in the 1970s and 1980s. Olympians included Shirley Babashoff, Brian Goodell, Larson Jenson, Maryanne Graham, Nicole Kramer, Casy Converse, Marcia Morey, Dara Torres, and Greg Louganis. Mission Viejo hosted the Road Cycling Events during the 1984 Summer Olympics held in Los Angeles. The old O'Neill Road was renamed Olympiad Rd. in honor of the Olympic events in 1984. There is also a soccer facility, now used by the town's youth soccer program, that was used as a training field by the United States men's national soccer team before and during the 1994 FIFA World Cup, hosted by the United States. Mission Viejo is the largest AYSO Region in the country. The Saddleback College ballpark hosted the Mission Viejo Vigilantes minor league baseball team of the Western Baseball League from 1996–2001. Now the ballpark has a semi-pro collegiate team, the Orange County Fire. Mission Viejo is also the hometown of NFL quarterback Mark Sanchez, Minnesota Twins pitcher Phil Hughes, and Chicago White Sox first baseman Adam LaRoche, former Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Don August, Boston Red Sox outfielder Allen Craig, Top Shot Season 4 Champion Chris Cheng, and PBA Tour Champion Scott Norton.

Mission Viejo neighbors the city of Lake Forest: Lake Forest is a planned community that was once a stagecoach stop between Los Angeles and San Diego. The community then called “El Toro” was in fact formed after WWII with the help of the El Toro Marine Base. Lake Forest became a city in the early 1990’s, and now prides itself on having the first of Orange County’s historical parks by establishing Heritage Hill; the park was created to preserve Lake Forest’s vibrant history. Lake Forest also has a new planned neighborhood, Foothill Ranch offers both wilderness and community. Foothill Ranch is home to The Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park, which consists of trails, rock formations, and streams as well as a rest stop and exhibits. This community is close to shopping, dining and entertainment in South Orange County. Within Lake Forest are the communities of Portola Hills, El Toro and Foothill Ranch. Lake Forest borders Aliso Viejo, Irvine, Mission Viejo, Laguna Hills, Laguna Woods, Laguna Beach and Rancho Santa Margarita. Lake Forest offers fantastic mountain views and quiet living for singles, couples and families in Orange County. Residents enjoy swimming, tennis, basketball, and volleyball at the brand new Concourse Park. The community is just minutes from various shopping centers and marketplaces. The zipcodes of Lake Forest are: 92609, 92630, 92610, 92679. And Mission Viejo neighbors the city of Rancho Santa Margarita: Before it was owned by the O’Neill family, Rancho Santa Margarita was home to Shoshonean Native Americans. RSM is one of the many planned communities in Orange County and is also one of the newest, having become a city in 2000. The community known as “A Small City with the Soul of a Small Village” is the perfect place for families and today nearly 50,000 people call it home. Community activities such as the Fourth of July Celebration and the Summer Concert Series are favorites among residents. Dove Canyon is a gated community in Rancho Santa Margarita. Within Rancho Santa Margarita are the communities of Dove Canyon and Coto De Caza that border the Cleveland National Forest and is best known for its choice golf courses. Rancho Santa Margarita borders Ladera Ranch, San Juan Capistrano, Mission Viejo, San Clemente, Talega, Trabucco Canyon and Laguna Niguel. Residents enjoy the outdoors at the Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park and the Wagon Wheel Park Bike Trails, as well as a variety of community and family events such as the Boo Bash and Holiday in the Park. The zipcodes of Rancho Santa Margarita are: 92688, 92679.
