Honesty and integrity

Al Stodolski Google Review


I no longer dread going for car maintenance since I found Great Bear 4 years ago. Rich is good at describing the different options when facing repair, showing me the actual parts that need to be fixed, which puts me at ease. He also once fixed a dent I had in my front bumper at no charge, he just popped it back to its original shape, which was really nice and helpful. They also have a clean, spacious sitting area with free coffee, which is definitely nice when you have to wait.

Took my camaro in for some custom exhaust work ( header installation ) and couldn't be happier with the outcome. Great work by Rich and his crew.

Very knowledgeable staff, quality repairs and diagnosis. A little expensive, you get what you pay for.

This was my first experience with Great Bear and I really enjoyed it. They are super professional and honest. They did not try to push any unnecessary service or component, quite the contrary, I was told my rear braking pads were a little worn out, but could safely be used for one more month. Besides that the service was extremely fast, well done, and they have one of the best prices around.

I am really pleased by this first experience. Richie and Dave definitely got themselves a returning customer.

Ricardo Duval Google Review


Been going to Great Bear for years, always happy with the service. They take the time to explain what the problem is and repair your vehicle fast with fair pricing. Would highly reccomend!

Nicholas Moy Google Review


My car broke down in a parking lot about 2.5 miles from their location, called up in the morning, dropped off the keys, and that was it, about 3 hours later Dave called to let me know my starter needed to be replaced. The cost incl. having to tow the vehicle was inline with what I was anticipating. They also let me know about a couple of other issues I needed to take care of, and since they already had the vehicle and had earned my trust, I had them take care of everything. I'll definitely be going back...

Great Bear in Huntington Station is the absolute best. I have always been treated with respect and honesty at this garage. They tell it like it is and give you options on how you would like to proceed. They aren't pushy or arrogant in the slightest. I am always concerned about unsavory garages but Richie and Dave are the real deal. They will always give you a call and let you know what your car needs. I would highly recommend this shop if you are in the huntington area.

Great Bear is awesome! Honest and reasonable...just compare prices around to see how much other places rip you off. Thanks Richie

A Google User Google Review


You can count on Richie Wisniski to diagnose your car accurately and give you a fair price for repair. We have happily used their service for over 12 years. Highly recommend them.

Always fast and fair service at Great Bear, been using them for years. Would recommend them from anything from an oil change to major repair work. They help you understand the problem with your car in simple language, and get you back on the road in no time.

Nicholas M. Yelp Review


I brought my classic 1974 Land Rover to Great Bear for a complete engine rebuild. After getting it back, I couldn't be happier. Richie, Dave and the crew brought this baby back to life. In fact, it runs the same as it did when I drove it out of the show room in 1974. These guys did a great job and kept me informed all along the way as to the progress of the project. I definitely will be going back for any repair on this or my other vehicles. Thanks guys!

Robert A. Yelp Review


There are NOT enough stars for Great Bear excellent service, I would NEVER trust anyone else with any of my cars, from classic to brand new. Everyone is amazing here!
Thanks so much for taking such good care of me & my family.

Theresa F. Yelp Review


I have been coming here for over 14 years now. Never crossed my mind to write a review as I always focus on the restaurant side of yelp. With that said this place deserves a great write up. This is the ONLY shop I trust. Richie is always honest and thorough with his work. Everyone in my immediate family (over 8 cars) uses them and we have never had any issues with the work or the pricing. Heck, when I was away at college some years ago and had car trouble with my clutch they even came to the rescue. I had a feeling that I was getting ripped off by a mechanic I HAD to use, so I gave them a ring just to gauge what their thoughts were. They explained what it should cost for various repairs. When I balked at the unfamiliar mechanics price and threw around some numbers great bear had quoted, wouldn't you know they were willing to take another look at the problem. In no way shape or form did they have to help me out, but they did and it's a testament to their honest work ethic. If your in the Huntington area and are looking for stand up guys then give them a try.

I came to this repair shop on 06/04/2015 .
-To all who are tired of being taken advantage of and up-charged for service and maintenance of their vehicle, this is the place to come for a truly honest consultation. The owner, and the staff of Great Bear Auto are complete professionals. They are educated and make it their staple to be fair and honest in the consultation process; especially when it comes to work required, maintenance, and the costs. I had the most positive experience, especially as a woman. Richie, the owner of Great Bear, even took the time to talk with me, explain my needs in a *comprehensive manner, and encouraged me to educate myself on my car- and he is right! Too many of us are taken advantage of for our lack of mechanical understanding. I felt confident in this shop's assessment, more importantly, I felt both I and my concerns were valued. I felt safe. I told them how extremely proud and honored I was to patronize their business.

I thank you and appreciate your wonderful staff for doing an incredible and fast job. I and my vehicle have found a place to call home!

Sara L. Yelp Review


These guys are the most honest auto truck repair company in the business. Richie has taken care of all my cars for years and now he gets my truck fleet. He did all our inspections and fixed all the trucks for DOT approval. He gave me great advice on future repairs and our fleet records. I trust him and his company. I recommend him to anyone.
