    Poor Service and a rip off

    I do not smoke. My wife does not smoke. But while my car was in for repair the mechanic was inside my car with a lit cigarette. Ashes all over the inside of my car and it smells like smoke now. Disgusting! After the repairs I found out the the water pump was replaced and it did not need to be replaced. I did not authorize it to be replaced. Ray, the owner, WILL RIP YOU OFF!

    Whenever I have a problem with one of my vehicles, I take them to Ray at Active. He's always friendly & does what he says he'll do. I may not always like what is going on with the car but Ray sits down with me and explains what his excellent staff has found & offers the most economical solution possible. He has always kept me informed as to the progress of repairs. This is always important! Thanks Ray!!

    DISAPPOINTED

    NOT PROFESSIONAL...Not qualified to do repairs...car went in because of breaking up and losing power. Car was misdiagnosed and parts replaced were not needed. Owner is not professional in the way he deals with ins co and constantly complained to customer who went beyond the call of duty to help negotiate with ins co. Less than 1 day after repair car could not be driven and was taken to dealer who said that the engine oil was 3 1/2 qts low which affected running of transmission. Why was this not discovered by this repair business????? The stress and the inconvenience that this repair shop caused me was inexcusable. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

    Huge Scammer

    Dishonest to say the least. Misdiagnosed my car problem 3 times. Said it would take 4 days to repair my car and it ended up taking him 2 weeks. He then replaced parts without that did not need replacing and without my permission. He quoted me a price of $1800.00 for the repairs....the final bill came to over $2700.00. DO NOT TAKE YOUR CAR TO THIS MAN!

    I took my husband's car to Active Auto Clinic, They quoted me $85-100 to replace the part that was broken (a very fair price!) We weren't able to pick...
