Took my car on a Saturday morning and the manager (Beau) said that since they close early on Saturday that I could leave it and pick it up on Monday after its done. When I brought the car home on Monday afternoon I noticed that half the gas tank was empty and 90 extra miles were on the odometer. I found a receipt from BrandsMart in Deerfield Beach 25 miles away, on my car seat and a football in the trunk. When I called the owner Mike, he admitted to knowing what happened and said the manager used poor judgment but is a "good guy" and a "good manager." He then offered me an oil change for another vehicle or a gift card to a local restaurant. Beware people!

I had the best experience dealing with Al Yaghy the manager. My car broke down at a near by bank and Al sent a technician over to help me asap. They ended up getting it started and gave me a ride home till the repair was done. These guys are one in a million......I must say that they were 200 less for the same repair the dealer wasgoing to do!! so i not only got great service but a great price also..What more could i ask for ?? Thanks guys...........

I had no problem with Mikes Great Bear, I took my car in for some major work, they not only gave me a great competative price, they finished it when they said they would. Mike was great in explaining to me everything that was involved in the repairs so I felt comfortable. He was very knowledgable and they are in a great location just off 95 on Hollywood Blvd I will be back with all of my auto repairs because these guys were honest and treated me fairly

I took my truck to Great Bear because my A/C was no Working. They took a look at it and determined that the compressor was leaking. They fixed it and now my A/C is freezing. They even provided transportation to and from my job , this I was not expecting. They where very nice and cheaper than other places I went to. Good work guys keep it up.

I called and spoke to AL Yaghy the manager and he offered me a free inspection of my brakes. I had been to another shop and the said i need $944.00 worth of work done on my brakes. The funny thing is that i went to the other shop just for an oil change and rotation. Well AL got my car in and showed me that the brakes we not only in good condition but that i wouldn't need them for at least 6 months to a year. The technicians did however point out that i needed a C.V.xle which was defective and could have left me stranded. The owner Mike was also involved and offered any assistanceas well. Overall my experience was GREAT and highly recommend anyone who want a honest repair and opinion.......

What an absolute delight having dealt with Michael at Mikes Great Bear .After having been told by my dealer that i needed pads and rotors for a ridiculous amount . i went to Mikes Great Bear where they completed the job for less than half of the dealers amount. I will reccomend Mikes Great Bear to my friends and family.

I needed 3 things: a new window motor, new battery and brakes for my Mitsubishi 3000gt SL so I could ship my car from FL. to MD. I figured $500-$800 for all. The brake pedal went to the floor so I'd let Mike tell me what I needed in brakes. Mike called, alarmed, to tell me my car needed much more to be Driven Safely!!! It would cost $1600 but happily I didn?t need brakes or a battery, my son had used the wrong DOT fluid and he'd flush it.

After the work was done & paid for I asked specifically about the brakes. He said, "they're fine and all it needs is some good driving!"

The scariest ride I've had is from Balt. to Silver Spring because when I picked up the car it had no brakes and no brake fluid. The pedal went to the floor and I had to refill the fluid, pump the pedal and keep my hand on the emergency brake and drive reeeal slowly.

The mechanics that work on my Volvo told me the car needs a new brake PUMP. Why did they know this and you don't Mike?? And the oil leak that ruined the timing belt? You didn't notice oil everywhere? You didn't notice the brake fluid leaking out? After 10 days? You didn't notice it had no brakes? What did you notice Mike? that you had a pigeon & needed $1600 to make your rent?

The window motor works - but the window isn't seated properly and rain leaks in. Never got my battery either. Got spark plugs & a cooling fan. And he wanted a CERTIFIED check from me! Which now makes sense because people that are dishonest think of others in those terms. I sent a regular check, which cleared immediately. My advice: Keep your receipts and have the work checked by someone else as I did, in writing. His day in court is coming....and one of my dear friends is a criminal defense lawyer in Florida. Have a drink on me with that $1600 Mike. In fact, have a party.

Pros: Nice personality- they'll "take care of ya"

Cons: Misleading to outright fraud

The guy employs a bunch of drunks and criminals. They took me for more than $5000 and I'm not sure they did anything. Car did not run right and I had to sell it. These people are crooks. The owner acts like he's high all the time. I wish I could go after them legally. Save yourself aggravation and money. Find another place to get your car fixed.

They overfilled my transmission fluid by 2 qts on one car and underfilled by 1qt on another. When bolting my transmission fluid pan back on they forgot to put one of the bolts back in. VERY BAD. Could have toasted my transmission.

This place charges way too much for basic services. Unfriendly staff. Dirty little hole in the wall.

DON'T GO TO THIS PLACE!!!

Routine oil change and tire rotation. Quoted me $19.95 I had a coupon $14.95. Foreign Car filter more expensive. I use Fram filters(american). I needed tires rotated, was included. The front tires more worn than back. Trying to get most life out of tires. Finished in hour.(quoted 45 min.) tires had not been rotated.Mechanics snickered in the shop. I talked to one, it was not a safety issue. In the office a mechanic laughed at me. I asked "what are you laughing at?" He (Rolando) said "It is useless to rotate your tires". At this point I decided I had enough. I asked the receptionist to get my keys I am leaving. I explained I chose this place because of tire rotaion, and that I could have gotten my oil changed in 15 minutes, down the street. "$21.95 please, we use Pennzoil". Will never go back.
