It is hard to find good professional mechanics that know how to fix foreign cars reasonably in the tri-state area. Active Auto Repair is a good find for me! Tucked away on 38th Street on the West Side of the city they are convenient to customers in New Jersey and Manhattan. I found them to be very courteous responsible and reasonable.
Our 1986 Porche Targa broke down on 2nd Avenue between 43rd and 44th on Saturday last. The first company I called to tow my car to Glen Ridge New Jersey wanted $500 + tolls. My wife Goggled the next towing service and we found Active Auto Repair. They were half the rate of the initial company and suggested that have the car brought to their location by the Lincoln Tunnel. Active agreed to diagnose the car first thing on Monday. In less than 15 minutes a flatbed truck showed up, loaded the car and we were at the garage within another 15 minutes. The tow truck driver was very courteous and helpful. The towing charge was also very reasonable. I felt confident that they were taking responsibility for the car.
Early on Monday I got a call from one of the owners letting me know that they had diagnosed the problem, giving me reasonable pricing for parts and labor and letting me know that the work being performed and the parts were guaranteed for over a year.
Both owners Jon and Josh are involved in day to day running of their business and are very upfront about everything. They will give you options for repair and service that most garages won??t do today.
I will continue to have our car serviced there.

Prices are more than reasonable for Midtown, NYC and they got our car back on the date as they promised. Been here several times now and have always been treated fairly. I'll continue coming here and have even recommended my niece to bring her car there.

Very honest and friendly staff. They fixed my Audi after I broke down. They were able to quickly diagnose the problem (alternator), and they gave me an estimate before they worked on the car. I will come back here, as they specialize in Audi's.

Very impressed with their Saab repair shop in NYC. Their staff was friendly and courteous and their work was professional and timely. Best of all, they beat the dealers estimate by a significant amount.

Was told I needed to replace the idle air control valve and they would charge me $650 for the pleasure. Seemed ridiculously expensive so I called around and spoke to mechanics who said that was crazy, that it can be cleaned for $45 vs

Finding a trust-worthy auto repair service in NYC, specially Midtown is a hassle. The guys at Active worked on my BMW X5 and got right to the point. Very welcoming experience. I highly recommend their services.

Active Auto Repair is awful. Do not take your car there. Sure, if you know a lot about cars, they will probably not try to rip you off as much as they would if you are not a car person. This place took me for thousands of dollars when I actually did not the work done that they claimed I did. I was in a desperate situation, so I had no other choice but to trust them. It was only after the fact, that I found out from an expert that they did work that was not needed.

I've been looking for a place in Manhattan to bring my Volkswagen Passat, and I've finally found it.
They were very nice and diagnosed my problem quickly and efficiently. I had the car back the next
day. I would definitely recommend this place and I will use them again.

My aging Volvo needed a small repair. They were courteous, professional, helpful -- and the price couldn't be beat. When I need service or repair, this is where I will go.

This guy tried to charge me **700** Dollars for an alternator and battery change. He claimed the alternator was a little too far under the hood.

I took my car somewhere else they charged me **280** Dollars.

When I refused their repair services. The guys became very rude. One of them almost assaulted me while he was trying to close the car door as I was taking some stuff from my own car.

GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!
