They did a great job on getting my car ready to be sold.
07/22/14
I had been quoted a price and when I asked how much when they finished it was 50 dollars more. It was a basic job, just wheel bearings. I told then what I had been quoted and they did adjust it but on a simple job like that, for me that's a bit of a flag with mechanics. I asked them to leave my keys in a place so I could pick my car up due to my commute and job schedule. I had paid over the phone and when I got to the shop, my keys were not there, and my door was unlocked. It was a huge inconvenience and was my first experience. They did take the car to my house for me and have me movie tickets but it makes me nervous that I cannot depend on them to deliver when I need them to.

They came highly recommended to me and my experience with them has been very pleasant. I found them to be a company of high integrity and trustworthy. They explained everything to me that I needed done to my car and why. Also let me know if it was safe to delay certain things til later. I was provided transportation home and back so I didn't have to wait. I really like their monthly newsletters and especially appreciate their special offers.

I brought my car in to have an over sized drain plug (placed by Cornerstone) inspected for damage to pan. Previous mechanic had to "suck" the oil out for fear of stripping the pan. When I picked my car up I was overcharged for oil change, approximately $35; Bruce's response was "that's what the other guy charged you" ... the previous guy had to "suck the oil out". I thought Bruce was trustworthy, his business claims to be Christian, but I no longer believe that. I will never use him again, or recommend him to anyone.
