Long Automotive has been my only automotive service for nearly 6 years. I would not go anywhere else. Long and his crew are highly professional, kind, efficient and completely trustworthy, When I first came to Los Angeles, my then new neighbor asked if I had a mechanic. I told her that I hadn't even connected with a family doctor yet! She said, "Your mechanic is more important! Without the best one, you won't make it to your doctor appointments, Honey!" How right she was. The best automotive advice I have ever gotten and the best service anywhere!

Well all I can say is I have been a loyal customer of Longs since about the mid 1970's when he was located at a gas station in Silver Lake. Then he moved to Glendora, or some god forsaken place out there, but still I did the drive from Sun Valley. Then, low and behold he opened his own business back here in the Silver Lake area & I am proud to say I was his "First Customer!!!" We all know how hard it is to find honest & trustworthy mechanics. Well I found & know one!!! Long Lim. I know nothing, absolutely nothing about cars, only how to put in gas, and I have gone to Long and told him I wanted, needed a tune up, he told me to leave and come back in a few months. Is that an honest mechanic, business professional or what?I highly, highly recommend "Long Automotive" for all of your mechanical needs. Oh, all of my friends go to him as well. You just will not find better!!!! Just think about it: I've been going to Long for over 30 years and he has NEVER let me down, nor have I EVER been dissatisfied with the Quality of service & professionalism received!!!

Our household has two cars that we have been taking to Long's for service for several years. We have found them to be fair and professional to deal with. When my car's brakes were squeaking, I was prepared for some major costly repairs, but they tested the brakes and said they were safe, and they would not need servicing for several thousand more miles as long as I didn't mind the noise. On other occasions they have always offered us lower cost options for fixing our car's ills. If it's a minor repar, they sometimes have not even charged anything, such as when my tire needed a puncture repaired. Oil changes and lube jobs are handled quickly and economically. They are an asset to our neighborhood, and I highly recommend them to friends and neighbors who need an auto mechanic.

I've been bringing our cars to Long for over 5 years. Brakes, front end, air conditioning, he does it well and there are no surprises.

He's the kind of mechanic you always want near your home or work.

Very honest, no nonsence, and fair prices. Mr. Long is not a salesman and wont chat you up; he will fix your car for a couple hundred dollars less than anywhere else!

I have a late model Honda and have used Long for about 4 years. I won't go into the horror stories that led me to Long--getting ripped off and losing a car to a very disreputable mechanic (that is, Celebrity on Hyperion)--but findings Long's shop was like reaching a safe harbor in a sea of lying, cheating and downright sinister garages along the way (the worst being those chains, like Discount Tires, etc.). Long is knowledgeable, fast, affordable, has a no-nonsense approach and is above all, honest. His employees are all equally courteous. They don't try to be your friends and chat you up, they just fix your car. Each visit, the service is done faster than I expected and cheaper. They never come at you with this, "I don't know what the problem is, so I replaced your alternator and fuel line...maybe that will fix the problem," common at way more places than it should be. They get them in, fix them, and get them out. I've driven past the shop in the evenings and seen all the bay doors open as they worked into the night. Always open on Saturdays, holidays. It's almost strange to see them closed. I recommend them completely and whole-heartedly. If you need a mechanic on the east side (or anywhere else for that matter), Long is the place to go.

PROS: fast, inexpensive, honest, knowledgeable
CONS: none

I ended up at Long Automotive on impulse back in March 2004. Just pulled in on my way to to see if they could help solve this strange vibration/buzzing coming from somewhere under the hood. Long came out to greet me and listened as I described the sound. He said he would take a look and call me. No invoice, nothing official. He wrote my phone number down on a scrap of paper and I left wondering who this guy thought he was. Later that afternoon he calls to tells me the found the source of the sound and fixed it (it was some sort of loose bracket). When I arrive to pick up the truck I ask him how much I owe and he tells me to drive the truck for several days and if the sound is indeed fixed come back and pay him. Incredulous I did as he told me, amazed that he'd trust me to come back and cough over the dough. Of course, I did (it was $30), and have been back since for a tune up and an A/C repair. With the former I asked him to replace my belts and he told me they didn't need replacing. There aren't m
