This has to be the most honest and reliable service repair shop I've ever dealt with. Paul who has helped us on this occasion and past has always told us the truth. How I know that is because he doesn't up sale. Our battery has been draining, more from lack of driving and sitting idle and he could have come up with all kinds of reasons to have us fix different things and he didn't. He told us our battery is still good, no other item is causing it to drain, that we just needed to drive it more to keep batter charged. When we call our calls are handled immediately, very professionally mind you. Great place to take your car.

Great

Good/honest mechanic. Saved me a lot of money that I would have spent at the dealer replacing my transmission fluid.(1/3 of the price:)

Found Walt's Auto Service when I went looking for a different auto repair shop for my 1990 Honda CRX SI, a long time ago. The independent Honda repair shop where I had been a customer for many years changed owners and it was time to move on. I've been a customer at Walt's Auto Service for........what must be going into a second decade by now. I first found them on a "Top 10" list in Auto Club's Westways Magazine of auto repair shops in Southern California. Then I began to notice that Walt’s made the "Daily Breeze's South Bay's Best" awards list year after year.Hondas and Toyotas (and their associated makes) are the automobiles that Walt's primarily repairs, but they are certainly perfectly able to diagnose and repair other makes as well.I took my 1990 Honda CRX SI to Walt's for many years until I gave it up in 2010, and now my 2010 Honda Accord is there for every oil change, service.....whatever it needs. At my very first Walt's visit, I liked how I could see AND watch (if I chose) my car being attended to, by simply standing in the customer parking area. All nine bays are visible. At Walt's, the standard is integrity, thorough inspections, industry-standard pricing (or better), Genuine Honda/Toyota parts, and same day service is the "norm" (with rare exceptions).This small, very personal staff has never disappointed. Kay, the owner and manager, is at the shop everyday and interacts with every customer. Paul, the ASE Certified Service Consultant and ASE Master Technician, will ALWAYS explain and show everything on the car that is an issue, without even having to ask him. (He knows I will look up parts online on my own otherwise.) I ask for these "teaching moments" and Paul always "makes time" to be sure that every customer is satisfied with their work when they drive away. He shows me the old, busted parts that came off my car, even if he has to scrape up the remains off the floor (and he has).Paul will always tell a customer "the whole situation". He never insists that any particular repair must be done immediately; unless, of course, there is a clear and/or catastrophic failure with a part, system, etc. If a repair or part replacement does not HAVE to be done today, Paul might say, "I would take care of (name a repair) within the next 'x' number of miles"..... or "Honda recommends that (name a part) be replaced every 'x' number of miles", but it is always YOUR choice, without any pressure. You will NOT find "upselling" at Walt's Auto Service. Prior neglect of your own automobile is certainly not to be blamed on ANY repair shop. Any "unexpected" repairs that are brought to your attention at Walt’s are simply a testament to the thoroughness of their highly-experienced technicians' inspections. As far as who "works the magic" in the service bays; Walt's employs two technicians, Francisco and Randy. Francisco is a fully certified ASE Service Technician/Specialist and has been servicing cars at Walt's for at least a couple of decades, I believe, and Randy has been there for many, many years as well. Talk about technicians that know EVERY one of their customer's cars..... inside and out.If my car was ever stuck out in the desert or anywhere else with a major problem, I would have it towed to Walt's Auto Service in Torrance without a second thought.

My first review was about 4 years ago and I am still a very happy customer! I use my car for work and drive much more than the average Joe. Paul always tells me "the way it is" and of course I give push back.....and we converse on about priorities and such to determine what is best for my car and my wallet. Kay, Paul and they guys are nice, honest and good people. Not only that; they have wifi and good coffee too. ;) Of course I'd recommend them!

Last week I called to get a service on my Altima . I use the car for work. They were able to accommodate me later in the day and wait. They did a great job and are very nice people to deal with. Kay and Paul the advisor. Very thorough and did an inspection I needed for work. Thanks again.
