The problem I had with my car was elusive and difficult from day one. These guys worked tirelessly to get to the bottom of it, and make sure even if it took a long time - I would get my car back fully repaired. I felt I was given a full explanation. of the work to be done, and issues that had to be worked out. This is very important to me bc I am a woman, and have been disrespected by others. I can tell everyone at GB cares about the customer, and it makes paying a big bill a little less painful. I will and have already referred others, and really want to say thanks!!!

I had an appointment for a simple oil change. I went to the right time, and the store was no ready for my appointment, and took ONE hour, for an oil change. My impression of the service is very poor. Any other service, I will go to another place.

It was my first time and I came in as a walk in. I knew there was a wait time as there were cars before me. But since I was waiting for my truck he tried to get it done as soon a possible. I was pleased with the service and manager was very nice. In an all-male environment, I felt comfortable waiting. I will go back whenever I need service. Close to home too.

Some of the few businesses I trust! They are honest and hard working people who will tell it like it is. I took in my 2005 Mazda 3 with quite a bit of issues. Without any hassle, Jacob updated me on a daily basis, gave me a good price and provided me with great customer service every step of the way.

The battery in my Sienna unexpectedly died while at the Shell gas station next to your repair shop. The manager at the gas station (I think Gabrielle) referred me to you. I was so beyond impressed with the service your employees provided. I wish I remembered everyone's name. There were three young men that were all amazing. The mechanic that walked over to the gas station and the managers (I think one was a bit sick with a cold). They were all great! Thank you for helping me and my kids (and they were so quick that we were still able to make it to our birthday party)!

Len and Jake were polite and explained what needed to be done and answers all of my questions without getting irritated, as other mechanics sometimes do. Len offered for me to come back in a week to address any problems that I may have noticed. I will ask about the "Check Engine" light that is still on. My car old, a 1995 Lexus G300 model. I spent over $5,000.00 for the service at Great Bear. So far, my car is running great. I asked Len for a referral to paint part of the car and he recommended someone to me.
