It was my first time at Sterling Car Care and I was not from the area and I was recommended by AAA to have my car taken there. I was treated like a longtime loyal customer, fast diagnoses of the problem, told the cost up front and was out the door in 2 hours.

The service at Sterling is always top notch! They are always considerate, thoughtful and you're provided full explanations of what is needed to your vehicle, currently and towards any future repairs and/or maintenance. Everyone is always helpful and very pleasant, especially Shaun and Ernie. The mechanics are nice guys too. You always leave away after repairs and/or maintenance with your vehicle fixed properly and you never have to return it for any problems. Once is always a completed experience. They always seem to care about your vehicle.

While overall service and time were good, I was disappointed that facility did not really look into tire leak concern with dashboard indication of low pressure. They brought tire up to pressure but two weeks after, low pressure indicator came on again.

November 15, 2013

I like their service so far and they seem honest. They told me if I had any issues with my car they would help me out. Also, their appointment times are good and they're done quickly.

November 14, 2013

I have been going to them for I would say for twenty years and I have been very happy with them. The first owner I dealt with, Gary Dewitt, I guess retired and has sold the business. Gary Dewitt and his wife were very good to work with. The new owners seem easy to work with also. I would recommend them. They are very friendly and highly recommended.

Verified CustomerNovember 08, 2013

Ever since a certain individual was hired, the price for repairs has gone up. That same individual told me that he was hired to increase the Company's bottom line. He certainly has done that by charging the customers for inspections and diagnostics that were once free. Sometimes I feel like I'm being nickeled and dimed. I recently came in for some warranty work for a repair they did 4 months ago. I thought it would be a free repair, but, was told that I had to pay for an inspection of the problem, diagnosing the problem to verify thatI had a bad part, and then the cost for the labor to install the bad part. I think the inspection and diagnosis should be free because if a repair is necessary, they will probably get the job to fix it. The free inspection and diagnosis would make for better customer relations. I would then be inclined to bring my vehicle back for future service knowing that my car was being serviced by people who care about me and my vehicle and not just looking at me and my vehicle as an opportunity to see how many things they can charge me for before I get out the door. I don't know if it's a sign of the times, but to me, when I'm asking for warranty work to be done, I don't expect to be charged for the repair.

Verified CustomerNovember 07, 2013

Everyone is so helpful and really care about their clients. They always have time to meet our needs. They are honest and trust worthy. Very friendly.

Took my Ford in for service for start issue after it was warmed up. The vehicle sat in the same parking spot for 4 days. I was never called once to be told anything that was being done to the vehicle. I had to call them multiple times to see if they had found the problem. They said they drove it but it was not showing the problem. Remember I never saw it moved from the spot it was parked in.. Finally on day 4, after calling and talking to the guys at the front desk they said for $1500.00 they could maybe resolve the problem. I said no and when I came in to pickup the vehicle they wanted $90.00 for troubleshooting it. I had a coupons for free diagnosis of the check engine light that was on, but they still wanted the money for nothing. The vehicle after I drove it home from the shop would not restart when I got home. They obviously never test drove it, but charged $90.00 for nothing. Stay away from this location.

I have been trying to reach you by phone and email and have still not heard from you. It is my goal to make sure all of my customers are completely satisfied with every visit.

You have been a very good customer for many years and would hate to have you leave do to a mis-understanding.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience and I will get this corrected.
