    Can you tell me if the frase "let's go fix it" make sense, is correct, and common?

    If you mean it in a way to imply that you should go off and repair something, then yes it makes perfect sense and it would be commonly used.

    "Let's go fix the car"

    "Let's go fix their PC"


    Remember that the contraction "let's" is really "let us".

    Hope that helps. I only speak one language, but I speak it pretty goodly. ;)

    I was hoping that isn't like "all your base are belong to us" :p

    "let's go" can be used figuratively?

    i want to use this for a site name, in wich site you can suggest fix to narrow some products

    i first thinked "i fix it" or "let's fix it", but are all taken :evil:

    "I fix it" sounds bad and doesn't work, it would be "I'll fix it" for "I will fix it".

    "Let's go!" is a very common expression, "Let's go fix it!" sounds good and makes sense. :)

    Another thing it's "phrase" not "frase"

    I believe you can say "let's go and fix it", and wonder if it's more correct than "let's go fix it"?
    but the shorter the better.

    ^^ may be you can put a comma: "let's go, fix it" :lol: Ok, for website name "let's go fix it" is better. Without comma

    No, sounds too formal that way. It's fine as "Let's go fix it!".

    If anything, I'd cut out the "go" and just do "Let's fix it!" :yep2:

    my only reservation is that sounds a little cacophonic with or without the go :S

    'Let's go and fix it' - would be the correct form, but 'Let's go fix it' - would be acceptable if you were to ignore the local ambiguity of the phrase. In that 'fix it' might be a person you are addressing!
