They made my hectic day very smooth. Clear communication and expectations. Super transparent. Quick and amazing service.

My check-engine light came on so I searched for a shop close enough to walk to. Walt's popped up. I left my car at the end of the day so they could check it out the following day. They called and said the catalytic converter needed to be replaced, which I already knew and had told them. The code had been cleared before, but I guess it comes on again. BUT what they noticed when driving my car was a noise coming from one of the wheels. I had been hearing something but thought it was caused by the tires wearing unevenly. Nope. Turns out one of the bearings was worn out causing the noise and would eventually cause the wheel to come off. Oh my! They replaced the wheel bearing quickly and now my car drives quietly. I had no idea and what a difference! I'm so glad I brought it to Walt's and for them thoroughly checking out the car. I've recently brought that car to Firestone and it had that noise, but they didn't figure it out. You can bet I'm taking my car to Walt's in the future. Paul was very helpful and explained everything. He even asked the mechanic to bring the worn part over to show me. Love this place!

Stop searching. Walt's is the best auto shop in LA! I've been taking my cars to Paul for over 20 years because he's honest, really knows his stuff and is willing and eager to explain what's going on with my cars in language that I can understand. Hannah is also terrific, friendly, knowledgeable and professional. This already-great shop has become even better under new ownership too! Thank you, Walt's Auto Shop!

Friendly customer service did an oil change a service on my car They didn't try to sell me anything. For me that was the best ,usually whenever I had and oil change thy would tell me something else was wrong. This was the 1st time I use them. They are now my new auto service dealer

I got a fantastic discount on my brake oil change (one third of what the Dealership was asking!) As I waited I noticed and was very impressed with the Owner’s unusually polite manner with customers and the whole staff of Mechanics—especially the front desk person who works with him like a well-oiled machine to get things done. It’s a great culture there.

I've got a long story to tell you. I received a coupon for free oil change and inspection. Their mechanic performed the promised oil change, for free. I expected to see a list of unnecessary service recommendation that some dishonest auto shops would recommend. To my surprise, they told me everything looks good and no service is necessary. So my impression is that these guys are very honest. After the oil change, on the way home, I started hearing weird noise from the engine that I've never heard before. Every time I rev over 3000 rpm, the engine oil warning light would lit on. I noticed the oil started leaking from the engine to the driveway. I knew something wasn't right. I called them right away. Unfortunately, it was a Saturday evening, and they don't open on Sundays. I waited till Monday to tell them what happened. They paid for the tow truck to move my car to their auto shop. After inspection, they informed me that the oil filter housing O-ring seal failed, causing the oil to leak all over my engine bay. They said it was a manufacturer defect. They spent Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning cleaning my engine bay to get rid of any residual oil. They told me the next oil change will be on the house as well. Despite of this unfortunate incident that made me car-less for 3 days, I think they handled this issue with the utmost sincerity and professionalism. After all, they didn't make a penny for 2 oil changes (1 in the future) and a towing service. My car is back to normal with brand new oil and filter. For that, I thank them.

Hector M. did a very good job with the oil leaking into valves repair done recently and with the Ignition Switch electrical replacement done several months ago. Paul, as usual, always gets good and correct parts. I've been dealing with Paul for over 24 years, since Walt's 2.0 when Rick K. bought the shop from the original owner Walt N. I have lived near Orange County for quite a while now and continue to use Walt's Auto Service.
