John and his folks always do a fantastic job for us. Big or small all done with the same great service.

Verified CustomerJuly 08, 2014

You guys always take care of my car problems quickly and effectively!

Verified CustomerJuly 08, 2014

To their credit, Cannon's has always provided quality services, generally in a very prompt time-frame. My only reason for giving them a slightly lower than top-level rating is because their prices for service are often among the highest in the area. Now, with all their new facility renovations and expanded services, I fully understand why they need to price things as they do. But this can nonetheless be a bit disconcerting, at times.

Verified CustomerJuly 08, 2014

Quoted a price that was $1000 over my previous quote from a competitor. Took several days even to get a quote, which I had to keep calling back for.

Verified CustomerJuly 07, 2014

I really appreciate the way I am treated at Cannon's, I have been a customer forever and always appreciate the way Georgine takes care of any question. This time Eric came out and talked to me about what they had to do and the way they had to take care of the problem. I appreciated being "in the know" about what was happening. I always like to see the familiar face of John Jongkind, he took care of my son's Volkswagen years ago. It must be a good place to work after all these years.

Great service! Everyone was very helpful and the service was done well and promptly.

Verified CustomerJune 11, 2014

They pick up my car and return it to my work. So helpful. The driver that picks it up is ALWAYS very kind and pleasant and they have been different young men it says a lot for your employers. They will always give me something that might need to be checked on for the next time but no pressure of breaking your wallet.

Cannons has gone out of it's way to maintain our family cars. The people are knowledgeable and friendly. The rental cars and the last minute accommodations to my wacky schedule has been a life saver! They are the best in town.

Shop is clean and mechanics are pros. Service performed as promised.

Verified CustomerMay 05, 2014

Very helpful service, willing to go the extra mile to help with my vehicle, gave me what was wrong with my car/truck and how much it was going to cost to fix it.

Verified CustomerMay 03, 2014

I have been with Cannon's Automotive for decades! And I always had perfect service. What I appreciate the most is that I was always given good advice, my questions were answered, my car was picked up and delivered when I didn't have the time to go there personally, and they always take the time to help me even though I might show up without an appointment like last Saturday.
