Best auto service in Manhattan 5/25/2010

Lemme tell you. My radiator exploded one day and I called Brownfeld for a tow. He said "I am too busy right now" and I begged him for some help. He sent a tow to me. Why was he busy? Because there had been a GAS EXPLOSION IN HIS SHOP- AND HE STILL GOT ME A TOW!!! This guy is awesome. I will not go anywhere else in Manhattan. Pros: Price, attitude Cons: none more

Professional 3/16/2010

I've been working with Alan since 2003 when I needed a fleet of 3 vans regularly serviced. Since then I've brought my personal vehicles to him on a regular basis. He's an honest, good guy who knows his business. In a city filled with companies that just don't have time to personally devote to their customers and customers needs, Alan is an anomoly. He makes it easy to just swing by in the morning and drop your car off before work then pick it up at the end of the day. Pros: Honest Smart Cons: None that I've seen more

where have you been all my life? 12/15/2009

i bought a car from a shady dealer and wanted to get it checked out on my own to make sure all was well. Alan was so warm and accommodating, i felt at ease right away. i sat at home trying not to panic about everything that might be wrong with my car, only to have Alan call and tell me that for the most part, my car was just fine. he could have made up any number of pricey things that needed "fixing" but was totally on the up and up. between Alan's extreme honesty and generosity, and the office girl Monica's supreme friendliness, this was by far my best mechanic experience of all time, i wish i wasn't moving away so i could come back often! Pros: friendly, prompt, thorough Cons: that it took me so long to find him! more

there is still one honest auto mechanic shop left in Manhatt 8/11/2009

Alan Brownfeld Garage Let me first say that Alan's garage has renewed my faith that there is still one honest auto mechanic shop left in Manhattan. Well, having lived in manhattan for almost 20 years, and having to keep a car here too, I've grown pretty cynical. What with overpriced garages, ripoff dealer service centers, and to top it off, the dreaded annual nyc inspection. I have been to quite a few supposedly reputable repair/inspection centers, and had grown to accept the ridiculous and expensive add-ons charged by manhattan mechanics in order to give that inspection sticker. I've never gotten thru for less than a few hundred dollars worth of engine flush/aircleaner blowout/overpriced work that I didnt really need. So after bringing in my 95 Ford explorer truck in to the place I had been using for the last 3 years, and being told I needed to spend an additional $400+ on engine cleaning etc...I had about had it. I told my old place no thanks, paid the $100 "oil change fee" and headed on over to this place I had found on the web called Brownfeld . Later that day I get a call to pick up my truck. I meet Alan, a big friendly biker type dude, who tells me I owe just $46 for the inspection. Thats it? Everything is fine and good?? Yes he says, and proceeds to describe all the work that I had done on my truck in the past like brake and front end etc. He had completely checked out everything was in good service and didnt take any opportunity to "upsell" a thing. I recommend Brownfeld Garage as the ONLY trustworthy mechanic left in NY. Pros: Honest trustworthy Cons: None! more

This place is great! 6/23/2009

Brownfeld auto gave my car special attention and advised me of choices for repair - I'm going back for sure! Pros: Best service in NYC Cons: Only one location more

better auto mechanics in nyc 3/3/2009

Brownfeld's - The Best Garage ANYWHERE! 2/24/2009

I was once told that all one needs to get by in the CIty is a good mechanic, tailor and hairdresser. With Alan Brownfeld of Brownfeld?s you?ve got the mechanic covered! Alan is not simply a good mechanic ? he?s an auto technician extraordinaire. Having worked in the field his entire life, even apprenticing under his father, the original Brownfeld, Alan can analyze any problem and fix it ? permanently. And unlike most garage proprietors, Alan is extremely honest with reasonable rates. He never claims something needs fixing that doesn?t, nor does he overcharge for any work done and/or equipment used. His work is flawless, pointed and efficient. I couldn?t imagine bringing my car anywhere else. And it?s such a relief to know that when my auto isn?t running perfectly, I know where to go to get it back to 100%. more

Honest, quick & friendly service! 9/8/2008

After my service station closed down I decided to give Brownfeld a try for a service check after reading the great reviews on Citysearch. The owner was honest, friendly and had my car back to me in one day. On top of it he noticed I was almost due for my state emissions test so he went ahead and performed that for me in addition to the servicing (and processed my emissions sticker/paperwork) so I wouldn't have to come back in again! On top of it his rates were so good I was floored at how litle my bill was compared to what I expected to pay! If you're looking for a new mechanic give them a try. more

GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE 8/27/2008

BROWNFELD AUTO SERVICE HAS EXPANDED HIS FACILITY TO BIGGER AND GREATER LOCATION AT 518 WEST 29TH ST. BETWEEN 10TH AND 11TH AVENUES more

Honest and realiable. 6/19/2008

I had my car broken into and alan had it fixed right away. I had an accident where my front bumber was dimolished apart, alan once again fixed it at an increditable price. Last but not least my brakes were sqeaking and my dash board lights did not work. Alan is my hero, he once again came through and fixed my jeep liberty. Hopefully now I wont have any problems, but if they do arise I'm sure I could always count and rely on Alan's auto repair. Pros: They know exactly how to fix the problems Cons: He needs to expand.(lol) more

brownfeld is excellent 12/19/2007

Alan is not only an excellent mechanic but very honest. He diagnosed my car correctly and actually checked to see if my car was under further warranty for a catalytic converter problem. He could have easily just told me that there was a problem and I would have paid him to do the job. Yet, his research into my warranty ( no mechanic would ever do that) let me do further work on my car at the dealer and save me 800 dollars. Pros: thumbs up Cons: one day when everyone finds they are great you will have to wait to get your car fixed more

THE BEST!!! 8/8/2007

Alan is by far the best, and more importantly honest, mechanic I have ever seen. Right price, quick turnaround. I always bring my car here. The one time I didn't, the place my car was towed to said it was going to cost $1800 to fix my car, I called Alan and told him the problem and what this other garage said, and he told me they were lying and that it would only cost half the price that I was quoted. This is one garage you dont let go, Alan will have my business as long as i own a car. more

BEST IN TOWN 7/9/2007

Alan is the best.I am a woman and this is the fist time I found a mechanic I can totaly trust.It is a big help to have somebody like him around.Any problems I have with my car he fixes right away for a good price.He always fixes things on time and there are never any surprises.He knows what he is doing.I would recommend him to everybody.HE IS JUST THE BEST!!!! Pros: service, price and personality more

Best Customer Service! 9/5/2006

Alan's may not be the least expensive auto shop in the city but he's reasonable and his customer service is outstanding! Great customer service is difficult to find anywhere in the NYC area but especially at an auto shop. You might save a little money by hitting one of the bridges but not enough to make it worth the time and effort. Pros: Reliable and trustworthy! Cons: Not the cheapest auto shop in town. more

Solid and Fair NYC Mechanic 7/26/2006

Explained what was wrong and fixed my car at what seemed a reasonable rate. I would definitely go back to him if I have another problem. more

Does the Work Right the First Time 7/23/2006

I have a 1996 960 Volvo. Went to the Volvo dealership in Manhattan. In a nutshell, they misdiagnosed my car, charged me $800 to perform faulty work, then wanted to charge me $2,200 to "fix" it. After taking it in three times. Found Alan on the internet, read the reviews and took the car in. In four hours, he fixed the car, and we have had no problems for two weeks. He correctly diagnosed the car, performed comprehensive maintenance, and charged me a very reasonable price. To top it all off...he would not accept my money until I test drove the car. This guy is THE greatest. Pros: Opens early (430am...Saturdays, too), KNOWs cars Cons: None more

Never Going Anywhere Else!!! 5/9/2006

Alan is above and beyond the most trustworthy, knowledgeable mechanic I have EVER come across. He not only took care of the issues I came in with but also fixed things that I had been told were very expensive jobs...all for an extremely reasonable price! When he explained things to me, he wasn't in any way condescending because I was a woman! He actually loved teaching you about your car!! When I move out of the City, I'll still make the trip in to bring my car to him. Pros: very quick turnaround, thorough more
