I have taken both of my cars to Mike's garage and have had good experiences with him. My wife's Suburban had a bad fuel pump and Mike replace it but the car was still having trouble so I had to take it to him 2 more times and each time he worked on it and didn't charge me anything. He final realized that the fuel pump was working but the car's computer had to be reset or something like that. He just replaced the radiator and hoses on my Trooper and he charged half the price as another garage. I hope it all works out but for now it is good. I don't understand all the bad reviews but I know that at least my experiences with him have been good.

Used Mike to change daughter's transmission. Seemed like a nice guy until transmission went out again and tried to get warranty work done. Stay clear of this liar!

I will add to the litany of rip off stories. My son took his truck there to be fixed...and as is recounted in several of the stories below...the truck was not fixed when promised and all my son got were weak excusues. Eventually Mike had it towed to another shop, and they told my son that the problem was not what Mike said, and they referred him to another shop....However, I still got a bill from Mike for 1800.00 for "storage" of the truck....Beware of how he writes up your order. I appears he leaves the estimate section blank, and then will fillitout with an outright fraudulent claim.

When i first moved to Tallahassee, I bought a 97' ford mustang. Its an old car so Im sure it needed some work. I went to Mikes garage because I lived right down the road. Mike told me there was a lot of rust which damaged the fuel lines. He gave me a good price to replace them, but kept my car for 3 months. His initial estimate was a week and then every day after was the same story... "You'll have it by today..." When i finally got my car back, I had to take it back to him several times to 'fix' the original problem. I doubt if my fuel lines were ever really replaced. Mike is notorious for lying. I dont know how he keeps getting away with this!

I visited Mike's garage on Pensacola Street recently and talked to him about fixing my bumper and installing some lamborghini doors on my vehicle. I own a Nissan 350Z and it??s my only vehicle. I gave a credit card to order the parts needed and he began "working" on my vehicle. He said it would take a week, then two weeks, then a month. All the while he was making fraudulent charges on my card and was calling asking for cash as well. Every time I could reach him, he would say it would be ready by 6:00 or the end of the day and to come pick it up then. Every time I would go there he would be gone already and moved my car to an "undisclosed" location and wouldn??t answer his phone. He proceeded to stall me and drag me along for 5 months only to find out he was stripping my car and selling the parts, even letting people take it for joy rides. Finally I got the police involved to get my car back which had been damaged more than when I brought it to him. When following up with the cops the only thing they could tell me is that they have over 50 disputes open on Mike's Garage and I would have to get in line to ever collect from him. After all this time he still owes me $700 and says he will never pay me back with a smirk on his face. I cannot believe people like this are allowed to have a company; I'm surprised he even has the ability to feed and clothe himself. I HIGHLY advise you not to bring your car to this place. He is a huge criminal and is a very shady person and the DBPR, Internet and police department will agree with me.

I took my truck to Mike only after taking it to another mechanic who replaced my radiator 4 times in 4 months. Mike replaced my radiator 5 months ago and I have not had one problem since and he was inexpensive.

Mike is a nice guy. But he half does work. Everytime I've been there I've had to take it back to have it redone. He doesn't accept responsibility for anything.

I have had lots of work done at mike's, from brakes to timing belt, and I have been exceedingly pleased. Friends have had suspension work done, transmission replacements, etc. Nothing but rave reviews as well!

The reason I am writing is because I feel that I was scammed by Mike's Garage 1881 W Pensacola St. After this horrible experience I Googled Mike's Garage online and it seems that this is a common practice to deceive customer to take your money and not fix your car. didn't
I still have the same issue and another now." He told me that there was nothing that he could do about it. I told him that have paid you but the problem is still not fixed. He said ??There is nothing that I can do.?

Hate to sound redundant but I really wish we came here first. We took our car to Mike's garage 2 months ago for a problem he said he could fix. Initially he told us the problem was a OEM part we just replaced - he said he had to put a manufacturer's part in the car. Charged us over $600 to do this (saying he wouldn't charge anything for labor only for the part he got directly from the dealership) Well the car worked for about a week or so and the same problem persisted (kept losing power and stalling out). He would always say the car was ready but there was always a reason why we couldn't pick it up when we went to get it. The worst part is the car was able to start (and to some degree drive) when we dropped it off Now even after he said it is ready the car WON'T EVEN START! I am wondering if he actually replaced the part in the first place or just kept our money. We just took the car to another shop and the guys seems to know what he's doing. So funny the problem that Mike claims the car has (some valve problem) isn't even coming up in search engines - My husband is so pissed with him...not to mention the discourteous "Jamaican" guy at the counter who makes it quite clear that he doesn't care about your problems....We are reporting him to the Better Business Bureau and possibly the police once we find out for sure what's wrong and to see if the part was replaced....WORD OF ADVICE NEVER EVER TAKE YOUR CAR THERE - EVER

I was offered a free diagnosis - well the old saying holds true "You get what you pay for" I am still waiting on my car to be fixed - almost a week now... I was told it would be ready the next day! Will have more to follow-up on when I get the car back - check back for final results... my husband has done most of the work on my car so he will know what has or "has not" been done to it!

I brought my car in for service a 2004 mercedes benz. I got it the brakes repaired and a full service of maintenance for less than what I was quoted for the brakes. My car turned out great and I was very satisfied. I recommend them to every and anybody. Thanks Mike you are awesome!

Mike's hires many young mechanics that don't have enough experience. You are lucky if the job was done by the experienced (senior) one. They said they changed the water Pump on my Sentra 99 for $200 but they didn't do it. I called him back and showed him that the old water pump had not been changed and the coolant fluid leaking. Finally, he changed it cause I can report that felony to the police.

I have now been out of a car for one month, my transmission had some problems. He lied to me and made me pay the day he said my car was ready. He told me that all was done so i gave him the money and then after, he said to give him an hour, he had lied. He keeps telling me that the car will be ready everyday and it never is. I do not know where to start to tell you the entire story, but he is a liar. Tomorrow, I am going with the police and I am having my car towed to another garage and I will sue him in court. I will also try to go to the business bureau and I will make sure personally the guy will not have the opportunity to screw people around. Do not go there.

I have been a loyal customer of Mike's Garage for over 3 years. I just bought a new car and decided to have the timing belt replaced because there was no record of it having been replaced previously. I had Mike's do it and supposedly fix an oil leak. After I got the car back it was making a horrible noise. I took it to the Honda dealership and they said that something was definitely wrong. I took it back to Mike's and in order to fix the problem it cost me another $200. The problem was the auto-tensioner which is in direct contact with the timing belt. I believe (but can not prove) that Mike's put a bad auto-tensioner in in order to get more money out of me. The oil leak problem that I paid for was never even done. I even caught Mike in a lie. He told me that he would sell me the tensioner at his cost of $243. He even went so far as to get "Honda" on the phone and then have "Honda" tell me the price of the part. I immediately went to Honda and found out the price of the part. It was $98.25. Mike's garage is extremely shady and I wouldn't recommend anyone going there.

I went to Mike's Garage for a CV axle repair; there was an $89.00 coupon advertised which I couldn't pass up. After my CV axle was repaired, my car was clearly out of alignment, pulling heavily to the right. Obviously none of the mechanics bothered to do a test drive after the work was performed.

I brought it back in to Mike's at 8 a.m., and didn't hear back from him until 3 p.m. telling me I needed a wheel alignment. Clearly I already knew that because I told him that's what the problem was when I brought it in! I guess his shop wasn't equipped to do a wheel alignment... Fortunately I had an alignment warranty with another shop.

Mike's Garage's prices are great compared to other shops, but there is a reason for that. I only went Mike's for simple things like CV axle replacement, but at this point I wouldn't even go there for an oil change. I would not recommend going to Mike's Garage. The prices are alluring, but the service is dissapointing.

I'm a college student here in Tallahassee. I'm originally from Tampa, and as such that is where my mechanic resides. I had my mechanic from back home double check everything that was done, and Mike's garage was on the spot. They were friendly, fast, and affordable. My car was fine afterwards, and if anything does happen I'll be the first to write it on here, seeing as I just got it back.

Mike is the type of guy that will say anything to get you off his garage. He will say what you want to hear so he can get rid of you at the moment. "Yes sir, we are working on it, yes sir it will be ready tomorrow, yes sir blah blah" BS!

He is a LIAR, he only cares about the money and doesn;t give a crap if you are a student on a low budget (or not), this is the mechanics everyone should stay away from.

I bought a 2nd hand car from him, probably the biggest mistake i have ever made in my life. I had it checked and it had a leak in the head gasket, yeah i hope you are reading this mike, by now you know who i am. He promised to fix it before i would buy it, he said he would have it ready by the next day if i was really going to buy it. Little did i know. I agreed, Bought the car the next day and 1 month later found out that the leak was still there and this time it was worse. The fix was worth around 1200$ and i gave him crap about it i don't know how many times. He must have left me without a car for about a month. After leaving it with him twice turned out the leak was still there and now it was almost pouring. The car hadn;t even been touched. I remember him saying "Yeah, its taking us longer but we are workign on it right now". I was outside of his garage watching my car parked behind his garage catching leaves. He never even put my car on the lift. To change a head gasket the first thing you do is disconnect the battery, he never even disconnected my battery. All he did was flush it with water to get rid of the oils stains and pretend he had fixed it, when i gave him crap about it he then blamed it on his mechanic and that he wasn;t sure what his mechanic did. He lied to me on various ocasions. After a month and a half of being frustrated i said ok, i'll take it somewhere else andyou will pay for my fix. He then came out of his cloud and said that he was trying to help me out but that the warranty of the car didn't cover that. WT!? The warranty was only on the engine and transsmission, yeah i think the head gasket is part of the engine and he also promised that he would fix that specific thing, that was the only reason why i bough the car from him. Pretty much he didn;t give a damn that i was a college student on a tight budget, all he cared was about money. And sadly i fell for it, so this is a warning for all of you out there. Luckily my car runs good now, 2000 $ later. But this guy is just plainly a rat. I warn all of my friends about him, actually my gf wnet there recently and has been without a car for a month now, just for a fan. Yeah he will always fix something and brake something. He is not worth a damn. I'm never ever taking my car back to him, I'm scared he'll pull out a working part and put in a bad used one, I've heard he's done that before.

Never go to him, even for the simplest thing.

P.S: don;t even try to reach him on the phone, if he answers then he will say he'll call back and never will. If you call close to 5 then he won;t pick up or he might and then stay quiet on the phone, He did that to me once.

Pretty much he didn;t give a damn that i was a college student on a tight budget, all he cared was about money. And sadly i fell for it, so this is a warning for all of you out there. Luckily my car runs good now, 2000 $ later. But this guy is just plainly a rat. I warn all of my friends about him, actually my gf wnet there recently and has been without a car for a month now, just for a fan. Yeah he will always fix something and brake something. He is not worth a damn. I'm never ever taking my car back to him, I'm scared he'll pull out a working part and put in a bad used one, I've heard he's done that before.

Never go to him, even for the simplest thing.

P.S: don;t even try to reach him on the phone, if he answers then he will say he'll call back and never will. If you call close to 5 then he won;t pick up or he might and then stay quiet on the phone, He did that to me once.

I cannot tell you all of the horror stories about this place. And every person I mention Mike's Garage to says the same thing: they got ripped off. They are huge s*** talkers, promising to have your car ready and then taking their time. Then they don't do the job right! Been known to put USED brake pads on a car then charge full price, etc etc. My car's engine completely burned out because of the work they did. I called Mike on his cell when it broke down, I was on the side of the road really late at night, and he told me to stay put so he could come look at it and get it towed. Guess what--left me stranded on the side of the road and turned his phone off! SOOO many horror stories. They are always in court getting sued....BEWARE!

It's not much to look at, the three-car garage at an exxon station. But Mike's Garage is one of the few honest small business mechanics in town. I've been taking my beat-up cars to him for a few years and his quotes are always dead on. One time I couldn't afford labor on a wheel bearing, and he gave me easy instructions to replace it myself. I can't think of too many mechanics that would do this at their loss!
