At Larsen Automotive, we understand that being without your car can be a huge inconvenience. That is why our goal is to get you and your vehicle out of our shop and back on the road as quickly as possible. We do this by fixing what you need in order to ensure your vehicle is safe and reliable, while also monitoring repairs that may need attention at a later service.

Our ASE Certified Technicians are armed with the experience, knowledge and tools to tackle almost any repair. We pride ourselves in being a one stop shop and having the capabilities to fix everything from domestic, european and foreign vehicles to fleet accounts, motorhomes and limousines.

We look forward to serving you in the near future.


Larsen Automotive, Inc. operates in place of what was once Culver Motor Clinic, established in 1954 by Vern Larsen.

Vern and his wife, Darlene, lived in Culver City from 1950 until 2004, where Vern owned and operated the Culver Motor Clinic. He was a member and past President of the Culver City Exchange Club and a devoted USC fan. The Larsen Family ran the shop for a successful fifty years, taking pride in their hard work, fair prices and great customer service. After supporting Culver City and neighboring communities for nearly five decades, Vern decided to sell the business and retire in 2004. 

After a ten year absence, the Larsen Family is back! With a newly renovated and refreshed shop and business, Vern's grandson, Nick Larsen, is the new owner and manager of Larsen Automotive, Inc. After his grandfather's passing in 2012, Nick made it his mission to bring back his family values to the shop that sits on the corner of Jefferson and Overland. He's looking forward to adding and continuing the great legacy that his grandfather created.
