Hope you guys are all perfect. It's one thing to think a dealership is bad, but really, do you all do everything that is right? Maybe one day your "stuff" becomes public. Might be worth taking a minute and looking at yourself before you point fingers. Just a thought.

Isn't it funny how the only person on this WHOLE entire site that defends Mike Ognibene is a person named "J Michaels". Interesting when Mike's name just happens to be "Michael J"!!! Get A Life!!! Let's just say for laughs that your not Mike(cough-cough), people in this town have put up with alot of his crap and bullshit for YEARS!!! He's an embarrassment not only to his family and friends, but to this whole community!! If anybody needs to feel sorry for someone, how about his children that have to walk around humiliated about who their father is!! Maybe he should have thought about who he was actually screwing over!! All these years he spent puffing up his image and living a life full of lies, never once did he think about who was really going to take the fall!! He still parades around town with his head held high and so full of himself. I bet his kids can't do the same. What a swell christian!!!

I understand all of your frustration but instead of making mean comments about him we should be praying that he will repent and ask God for forgiveness. God said that if a man sins against you and repents then you are to forgive him 70 times 7. I do understand why you are all upset by we are to love others as Christ loves us...

I would not go to any church that lets people like him walk thru the door. Just because he goes to church does not make him saved. That is what bothers me about people who think just because they go to church they are good people. There are wonderful people out there who never go to church but live in Gods name every day by the way they live their lives, good to themselves and others. Saying all the bad stuff about him is not really nice but this is how people get their anger out for the horriable things Mike has done to them. He is far from a true Christian!!!!!!!! He can change is ways just like everyone can but the question is will he?

I know him on a different level then these people here, and not only do I agree that he is a lying scum-bag that is guilty of the worst known human sin (fraud), he is a pathetic hypocrite crazed for money and scandal. It really sets a flame inside of me to see people treating him with respect when he is one of the very few people I know that doesn't even deserve a single glance. I have personally dropped this matter as should everyone else. Because what goes around comes around, and Mr."I am so Holy" should know that in the end no matter what, He will pay for what hes done and God will have the final answer even if he has apologized. His defense is; No one is perfect, people make mistakes. Let me leave you on this note, if that is the only thing you can say to defend your antics, your going no further in life that you just have. If you never got caught ... would it still have been a mistake?

I suggest that you report them to the authorities. Nobody should hold you against your will.

Mike is one thing all on its own but to think of all of us that lost our jobs is another. You can only begin to think about what we all think. Jobs, peoples lives, kids, church, God, Mike only cares about himself!

I'm a single parent mother of two and I've been searching for a used car for the past few weeks now as my current car will not make it through the first snwow fall here in Buffalo. I am so glad I came across this post!!! My "dreamcar" is being sold at Crazy Cheap Cars in Batavia, which is listed as a "Division of Mike Ognibene", I better keep searching. Thx

I'm sure there are plenty of honest used car dealers in the area (unlike this schmuck - I want to barf every time we drive by his place).

For what it's worth, I've heard nothing but good things about Bergen Auto Sales, a small used-car dealer in Bergen NY. They've been around a long time and their prices seem more than reasonable.

I should know this by now, Car dealers are just like lawyers, shiftless scum.
Even his employees hate the man.

We'll screw you right here!!!! That should have been his catch phrase. Mike O' was screwing people in the name of the lord.
Come to think of it there are a lot of people like that.
But this guy had some big hairy coongas. I am glad they nailed his ass but I feel bad for the people that got burned by him, myself included.
I bought my truck there and really got a pretty good deal except when it came to extended warranty time.
I told that little dink "Mark" you know who you are, and so do I buddy!!!!! that I wanted the Ford premium care warranty and he did his best to talk me out of it.
He sold me this Universal Underwriters warranty that I am very concerned about.
If he got anyone else and if you know anything about this warranty good or bad, please post it.
My dealership in Victor told me that they could work with anyone but alot of those so-called warranty providers find more excuses about what they can't or won't cover than what they actually will. These people have been siphoning off my checking account for almost a year. Please if you can pass along some info i would appreciate it. Thanks and Merry Christmas

First, let me say that far too many people profess Christianity without having a clue what is means to be a Christian or the tenets of the faith. Therefore, I shall spare you the theological lecture and let's at least agree that there is/ was virtually nothing Christian regarding the motives or actions in business and perhaps life concerning one Mike Ognibene.
If anyone was taken in a financial dealing by a shady automobile dealer from the appearance of piety and symbolism via a Jesus fish display in a commercial then let me say for the record Satan has only begun his fun with you. The scripture says that Satan appears as an angle of light. If Satan can work through an apostle of Jesus then what makes you think that would hesitate to work through an useful idiot with overt esteem issues like Mike O.?
I am currently looking to spend a nice some of money on a couple of late model used cars and after doing some research (Clue to the intellectually lazy) I will pass on buying from crazycheapcars.com as a viable option. It's a shame as I thought that they had some interesting product listed on their website.
Mike O., I'm confident that you and/ or loved one(s) are monitoring this Blog as this is typical behavior of people with your, shall we say, character defect (clue phone ringing). I ask you my brother... was it worth it?

I would never go to a church where people like mike ognibene preach.I cant prove it but i really think he gets more tax writeoff for giving than what he gives to City church.See most people go to church to worship god.This church people go to get free stuff.An mike he gets a huge tax break right.Alot of the churches here are suffering cause of the fact they give away free stuff.No they dont do life togther.If they did that pastor would be giving away his stuff he owns to help poor people.I dont see him goin hungry do you??The good people are the big red bus they give.The salvation army.They deserve praise.I hope you read this.We might be poor but we have rights mike ognibene.You are hurting my children i can not bring myself to pray for you though i should.An if i go to court it cant be a judge ya go to church with.An my kids mom unfortunatly every so often takes my boys there to see if she can get free stuff..Pastor mary you ought to be ashamed to let a man like mike preach god ever!~!!

To Dale in Waterloo.....Just like many of you folks I am not very happy with Mike Ognibene and his antics. I was a salesman there for a few years and made very good money until Mike screwed us all. But in regards to your warantee, Mark offered you that warantee because it in fact is better than the Ford Warantee. It is good at any ASE certified shop in the United States and offers a lot of things that the Ford warranty does not....so you have no worries when it comes to the warranty

Mike is not a fake. he is a very strong christian. yes there were bumps and bruises in his business but we all make mistakes. donald trump fiald for bankruptsy twice. nobody really cared did they. id like anyone of you to try and do what he has done in the business world. i am dating his youngest daughter and i've spent days at his house talking with him. hes not as bad as everyone made him out to be. he cant serve thousands of ppl at once, thats why he has employees and some of them werent doing their job right so blame them not mike. and his business was with the ford company, not with any of you fools. your probably a bunch of fakes too
