I own a 2004 C-class and after it went out of warranty, I began experiencing brake problems. Beverly Hills Mercedes quoted me $3500 to fix the problem. I took the car to Westwood and Larry diagnosed the problem (not the same as Bev Hills, btw) and quoted me $1,300. Parts had to be ordered and it took a few days, but what a price difference! The brakes were still not working properly after I picked it up and Larry took the car back and did some additional needed work (another part he missed)...he was very forthcoming about his mistake. He had the car for another day and a half...I know he spent at least 4 hours installing the needed part...and he charged me nothing...not even for the cost of the additional part. He's a super guy...thanks Larry....the car is running brilliantly now!!!!

Pros: Larry, the Mercedes genius

Cons: no frills shop / time to order parts

.

One of my non-Mercedes cars needed repair --turn signal, the door was jammed and the right front passenger window doesn't work. It took Larry about a week to complete the job, but he did a great job! He even suggested that I buy the parts to save money. \n\nLARRY is a winner and is definitely the LAST HONEST MECHANIC standing. More Power to you, Larry.

Pros: HONEST, REASONABLE & KNOWLEDGEABLE

Cons: SMALL SPOT, SOLO

I have been searching the West LA area for an honest mechanic, and Larry seems to fit the bill. He is pleasant to talk with, and knows a lot about Mercedes. I can tell, he has years of experience and treated me with the utmost respect. Being a woman, I have been taken advantage of by other mechanics by being charged way more than normal price. Larry gave me a good estimate and I highly recommend him.

Larry appears to have an encyclopedic knowledge of all things related to Mercedes cars and is a very pleasant chap. He obtained all of the parts and fixed everything on my 300E on the same day and charged very reasonable prices. Incidentally, there is an Enterprise car rental 2 mins walk away if you need a replacement car for the day, as i did. If you own a Mercedes i would be surprised if you could find a better service than this in LA.

Pros: easy to find, car rental nearby.

My Mercedes E320 was stalling and had engine issues. I found out that the coils needed to be replaced. This place was a great find! They not only knew what the problem was right way, but were very reasonable with the price for the repair. I highly recommend them to anyone.

A friend of mine recommended Westwood Mercedes because the dealer was just way too expensive. The dealer quoted me an obscene amount of money to fix my engine, so I took my friend's advice. I took my car to the manager named Larry. He is very nice and I am so greatful to have found him. He is not only honest, but he even took the time to explain the problem with my car. He is professional and I will definitely bring my car back again.

At first, I went to a guy in Santa Monica which turned out to be a big mistake! I found Westwood Mercedes on Citysearch, and they seemed reasonable, so I gave them a shot. My 450 SL was running very sluggish and made a strange sound on acceleration. It turned out that all I needed was a tune-up. They are very knowledgable and I paid less than I anticipated. Thanks guys.

I was referred to Larry by a friend of mine and thank God I found him. He is an honest mechanic who you can tell, has lots of experience with Mercedes. At first, I went to the dealer and was quoted a huge amount just for a head gasket replacement. After calling Larry, his estimate was a lot lower and he seemed very reasonable. I got the car back the next day, with no problem. He is professional and gets the job done!

I went to Westwood Mercedes because, while there were not a lot of reviews on citysearch, the few that were posted on here were all very positive. This was a great find!!! It's less than a mile from my home, but more importantly, I got great service at an incredible price. I had had my car serviced at the Mercedes dealership in Santa Monica, and they told me that I needed about $3000 of work in addition to my regular servicing (which also cost a fortune), so I decided to shop around to see if I could get a better price. Larry quoted me $325 instead of the $550 that the dealership quoted. He also replaced my engine air filters and didn't charge me for the labor, just the parts. \r\n\r\nAs a woman, I always worry that these auto shops are going to take advantage of the fact that I don't really know much about cars. I didn't have to worry about that here. From the moment you meet Larry (and checking out the website), you can tell he's an honest, nice guy and that he's being fair. He even told me that I could've probably waited longer before replacing the brake pads and rotors on my car (Mercedes dealership made it sound like there was a real safety issue and I needed to have it taken care of immediately).\r\n\r\nIt's not the fanciest or most sophisticated repair shop I've ever seen, but who cares. They get the job done, they treat the customers well, and the prices can't be beat. I would've actually paid a bit more for the peace of mind that I got from them. Anyone with a German car, not just Mercedes, should use them.

Pros: Prices can't be beat. Larry is an honest guy.

Cons: At first glance, seems like they would only be able to service older cars that don't have all of the computerized equipment.

I was referred to Larry by a friend of mine and I am very pleased with his service. The shifting on my SL500 was rough and I could tell something was broken. He fixed the transmission and it came out to be half as much as was quoted to me by some other place. Thanks Larry!

Pros: Good service.

Cons: On side street.

The starter on my Mercedes S500 was acting up, so I took it to a place on Santa Monica Blvd. They said I would have to replace the starter and the alternator, plus they quoted me over $500. Luckily, I came across Westwood Mercedes on the net and got a second opinion. They fixed the problem and it cost me only a couple hundred dollars! Very satisfied.

After having my Mercedes C280 towed to this place, I was sure that the amount of damage would be estimated over a $1000. To my surprise, it came out to around $700. Larry is very honest and treated me well. It took a day longer than expected, but was well worth the wait. Thank you Larry!

His name is Larry and he owns the joint. I was a little nervous at first because the pictures on the website make the place seem grander than it is. But Larry was courteous and honest. I went in for a basic ""A"" service and he was able to schedule me the next day. He even dropped me off at the nearby library at my request, and then picked me up when my car was ready. I had to wait longer than he promised but then again, he doesn't do pick-up and drop-off; I sweet-talked him into it and he had to get his friend to come and keep the place open while he came for me. Larry's price was also HALF the German Independent shop (which I can't understand why is rated Best of Citysearch -- the guy was rude and quoted me 20% more than the Beverly Hills Mercedes dealer!)\r\n\r\nAnyway, who knows what mechanics actually do to your car but I think Larry changed the oil and the filter like he said, and he seemed knowledgeable about the specifics of the car and about Mercedes in general. I'd certainly go back to him and recommend him to others.

I had trouble starting my BMW 325I and someone referred me to Larry. So I had my car towed to the shop, and had it back the next day. I thought the bill would be in the hundreds, but it was a lot lower than I expected. It was a good deal!

I had been taking my E320 to a place on Santa Monica Blvd, but the guy couldn't fix my problem. I spent a lot of time and money. Finally, I found Westwood Mercedes and decided to try them. Not only did they find my problem, but they were genuine and treated me well.

There was an oil leak on my car and I wasn't sure what it was. At first, I took it to a different place in west la, and they told me I needed to rebuild my transmission. Luckily, I was referred to Larry by a friend and he showed me that it was actually a head gasket leak, not the transmission. He saved me so much. Thank you Larry!

My experience at Westwood Mercedes was very good. I brought my 2005 Mercedes E320 for a full service, and they had my car done that same day. Also, a couple weeks before that, my left tail light was out and they were kind enough to replace the bulb for free. I have been going to Larry for years, and I highly recommend him.
