there is still one honest auto mechanic shop left in Manhattan 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. more

The mechanic I used to be 10/17/2007

Being a former auto mechanic, I finally found someone that takes care of his customers like I used to. All I needed was the state inspection but Alan's customer service style spoke tons about him. After reading so much about Alan then observing him interact with customers that were there I can tell this is the guy I would send Mom to if she drove and needed someone with a shop. more

never thought there was an honest mechanic 10/21/2005

til i met this guy. he is really a straight up shooter and he tells it like it is. he is fast, reliable and prompt and he definitely takes care of repeat customers. twice now he has fixed the car for less than his original estimate. i had stopped at other mechanics in the neighborhood and they all have long waits and wont be able to service cars for days - you park it on the sidewalks at alans in the morning and pick it up when its fixed in the afternoon. great guy more

what a mechanic should be like 8/15/2005

If you want Alan will have your car ready while you wait if it’s not to big of a job. He’s your dad’s mechanic meaning he has an old garage and knows everything about every car ever made. He uses brand name replacement parts, is a bit pricey, but won’t rip you off. If I am in the city passing by I just love to stop by with him and have a chat. more

Friendly service 8/15/2005

Quick, friendly service direct from Alan, the owner who looks after all the customers, and is fun to swap stories with while you're there. Although it is a bit remote from all the nearby subway and bus lines if you have to drop off your car for the day, it is worth the trip since they give every car pretty individual attention. more
