Asked for tires to be rotated paid for it and did not get rotated.

by - Verified Customer November 30, 2016

I appreciated getting a phone call letting me know that my new vehicle needed synthetic oil and that it was significantly more expensive than my previous oil.

I did not like waiting in the lobby (over 5 minutes) before being spoken to by any employee.

by - Verified Customer November 30, 2016

Well done.

by - Verified Customer November 28, 2016

I left my car for an alignment on the 11th. They called and said I needed a ball joint replaced and wanted an additional $550, and could not get the part until the next day. I declined because of the unusually high price for a ball joint.

by - Verified Customer November 21, 2016

I was pleased with the work done and did not feel pressured. All employees were very polite and could tell that they had my best interest at heart.

I had to have my tire patched and the service was great.

by - Verified Customer November 18, 2016

The work they do makes my feel secure about my car.

by - Verified Customer November 18, 2016

I had value stem replaced. Paid $111 and light is still on. Was told it would cost me $60 more for them to figure out why. Ridiculous for that money they don't figure it out. I have not gone back.

by - Verified Customer November 18, 2016

I was excited to find a BMW service center closer than South Bend; however, you said I needed many more things done including a missing spare tire...when I found the spare in my trunk under the liner I then found myself questioning all of the recommendation.

by - Verified Customer October 12, 2016

The staff were courteous but the over work on my vehicle was a little sloppy.

by - Verified Customer August 22, 2016

My car broke down in New Buffalo MI when I was traveling home to Chicago IL, AAA membership services provided me with Cannons as a nearest mechanic to tow my to until the following Monday. Every one we dealt with, but mostly Georgine over the phone, could not have been more helpful, attentive, knowledgeable in their level of customer service. Thankfully, the car was repairable and fixed by day's end on that Monday!

Good for simple jobs, not for more complicated issues.

Great!

Great job!

by - Verified Customer July 25, 2016

I have had service done at Cannons on many of my vehicles, but this time I was extremely disappointed because I was charged $124.10 to get a diagnosis that the fuel pump failed. The only reason I didn't have Cannons complete the repair, is because my son had this work done by another establishment in March, and it was still under warranty. (The cost was over $1200 to replace)

I dropped my car off Friday night (Cannon's was closed), and I called Saturday morning prior to it being looked at, I was never informed that it would cost over $120 to tell me what was wrong. I understand sometimes it does take time to diagnose the vehicle, but at the very least, the customer should be informed of the charge prior to completing the review. I think it is important to support local establishments, but it doesn't seem that this is the same level of fairness that the previous ownership offered.

by - Verified Customer July 09, 2016

As always, the work was done professionally and on time. My most recent visit was for new tires.

I always feel comfortable bringing in my classic car for service, I know my car will receive the best of care. I'm always sure about the cost, I'm given a estimate before service.

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

by - Verified Customer July 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.

by - Verified Customer July 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.

by - Verified Customer July 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.

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.

by - Verified Customer May 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.
