    Top notch all around
    I purchased a convertible Benz from Olaf and must say it was the best car buying experience ever! They have a great selection of affordable, higher end cars in excellent condition. You would be hard pressed to get a better deal elsewhere on comparable cars! I highly recommend Active Auto Sales if you are looking for an honest car lot with high end cars in excellent condition at a reasonable price

    Very Positive Experience
    I had done my research and knew that I was looking for a newer Saab with low mileage. I found it at Active, with a price that was fair. Olaf offered to pay for new tires as they will need to be replaced fairly soon. He was very knowledgeable and professional. No sales pitch, just answered questions. He handled the transfer paperwork, as is required by law now, and made financing research and application easy.
    I would recommend Olaf and Active Auto Sales to anyone looking for a used car.

    Ideal First Car Experience
    I called today about the Honda Insight and I couldn't have been more pleased that me and my future mother in law were able to get out so quick. We test drove the Insight first and then a 2006 New Beetle. Olaf, the owner, was very helpful. I hadn't exactly done my research on hybrids but he was knowledgeable and explained exactly how they work. I was sold on the Honda. It was my first time buying a car and coming here made it that much easier.

    WOW!!!
    My boyfriend and I found active auto sales via autotrader.com after spending 5 hours searching all around the bay area for a used car. We had driven all the way from Tahoe and were exhausted and somewhat put off by the big dealerships around that area. Finally we stumbled upon this dealership and to be honest at first glance it doesn't look like much but the service blew me away. Charlie helped us out and he couldn't have been more kind, professional and easy going through the whole process. NO PRESSURE to buy at all!!! The Lexus we purchased was in amazing condition at an unbeatable price and we jumped on the opportunity. The lot was filled with upscale well maintained cars. I would highly recommend them to anyone around Corte Madera looking for a car with a great price and exceptional service.

    Love you guys
    I've been dreading the thought of helping my daughter buy a car due to bad experiences with used car dealers in the past. Active Auto Sales might make me rethink the stereo-type I carry around with me as I had a good experience here.
    We purchased a car that was well priced without any sales pressure from Bill in the yard or Charlie in the office.

    After the deal had already been completed I had to change some paperwork due to my insurance company and Bill & Charlie couldn't have been any nicer about it even though it caused more work for them

    Fantastic Service
    I recently helped a close family friend buy a Mini for her daughter who is moving out to CA. We saw an ad for a Mini that would fit our needs on Craigslist. I called Active Auto up and spoke with Charley who answered all my questions. I wanted a pre-purchase inspection done so he recommended a mechanic nearby who turned out to be great. When we arrived Charley figured out who I was and remembered my name from the day before. He had the car all set out and ready to go.
    Long story short, we had nothing short of a fantastic buying experience. The day we were up there, Charley was single handedly running the entire dealership himself (helping multiple customers, answering the phone, etc) but he still managed to make it a pleasant experience. He was informative, personable, efficient, and exceeded all our expectations. We also bought a warranty through them as well. They sell AUL warranties which are known to be the best aftermarket option on the market. I've had 2 AUL contracts and couldnt be happier. I would highly recommend working with Charley at Active Auto if they have a car you're interested in

    Great buying experience
    This was the best used car buying experience both my husband and I have ever had. The guys work as a team, are patient, and very accommodating. Both my husband and I purchased cars at the same time because the selection was great and they were so great to work with. Most of the our interactions were with Charlie who was extremely service focused. We love the vehicles we purchased which were priced very competitively and in great condition. We will definitely purchase again and recommend anyone in the market for a used car

    Thanks Active Auto Sales
    I bought an 07 Saab 9-3 Aero Sportcombi, and my family and I really like the car. Thank you Olaf and Bill for everything you have done for me, and thanks again, Olaf, for being able to find a loan for me. Olaf and his team are very honest, and work very hard for their customer. I would recommend them to others and return for future purchases as well.

    Good buying experience
    Getting my 2006 Jeep Liberty at Active Auto Sales was the least traumatic car purchase I ever made: Olaf and Bill were both very patient, and there was no pressure whatsoever.
    Two month after my purchase, Olaf sent me an extra remote key that he located! Nice.

    Thanks to Olaf and the team!
    I just purchased a Porsche Boxster from Olaf and his team at Active Auto. It was one of the best buying experiences I've ever had with a vehicle. Bill was very patient when I showed up late on a Saturday and let me test drive it anyway. He proved to be very knowledgeable about sport cars and I was impressed with his honesty and integrity. The car seemed in very good shape, and when the Porsche dealer inspected it that proved to be true. Olaf really knows quality! - Plus he took care of the paperwork including registration in 25 minutes. A great vehicle for a great price - and even better service!

    Love my Saab
    When I joined the ranks of the practical and bought a Honda Odyssey, driving lost its allure. Thanks to you - and my new Saab 9-5 - I take delight in getting behind the wheel again! Really appreciate your helpfulness, and love my car!

    Heartfelt Thanks!
    Thank you ACTIVE AUTO SALES for helping us to make the right vehicle purchase for our 16 year old daughter.
    She had her heart set on a convertible BMW; but with your assistance we were able to put her behind the wheel of a super cool, yet much safer BMW hard top coupe.

    I can not thank you enough for helping us to buy the perfect car.
