Sebrina’s Story

Needed Help And Guidance

“It was really nice…I called ahead and found a vehicle online that I was thinking about…and as soon as I got here it was parked in front. My finance manager helped me alot with financing. It was confusing to me, but he explained everything very thoroughly and he helped me get a really good rate. It was so positive, I felt like part of the family.”

Sue’s Story

Emergency Service Saved Vacation

“My husband and I were going on vacation…heard a noise and said I can’t drive this car…another 12 hours…we said what are we going to do? I’m going to drive to Cornerstone KIA, it’s Saturday morning…I know they have service…so I sit outside and waited until they opened…to see if there was any chance they could get us in…and sure enough…they did. They went above and beyond to help me out that morning so I could get on to my vacation. I feel like they know you and are going to take care of you, and you’re never going to get anything but honesty.”

Mick & Mary’s Story

Long Way For Quality Service

“The honesty and the integrity, I think that’s their culture. they’re just a good company that believes in their product and believes in their customers. They just always make us feel like we’ve been with them forever, even though it’s only been a little over three years, but it’s the only place I’ll ever buy a car. We live in Grand Rapids and it’s a three hour drive for us to come down to Cornerstone Kia in Elk River. But it’s worth the trip because the, the service and making sure that we have the quality Kia parts on the car is the most important thing for us. It’s worth the extra mile to drive down.”

Mike’s Story

Likes No Haggle, No Surprise Buying

“I looked online and happened to find a number of vehicles that I was looking for and one of the vehicles was at Cornerstone. So I made the call and, and someone was available to talk to me and came over here and found that the, experience was pretty amazing. No haggle, no hassle for cost. We found the lowest interest rate that we could because I was of course financing the vehicle…it was an online experience that turned into a great experience.”

Kevin H’s Story

Right Vehicle At The Right Time

“Back in 2016 when I was looking for a replacement truck, I wanted another F-150. I had an F150 for about 16 years. It was time to hang it up. It was time for a new vehicle…I just didn’t feel comfortable with the dealerships that we visited until we went to Cornerstone. As soon as I stepped into Cornerstone I knew they were friendly, I could tell they were competent. And I learned to appreciate that they had integrity”

Michelle’s Story

Needed To Go The Extra Mile

“So when I walked in I found a salesman right away and was able to drive one vehicle that I was pretty set on. I was able to take that vehicle overnight…I knew this wasn’t for me…I called him, the next morning and said, I think I need to come in. I think we need to talk and look, look a little bit different. And he was open and welcoming to that and said, I’m going to get some things ready for you and we’ll take it from there. And that’s exactly what we did. My salesman was absolutely wonderful and really took, went that extra mile for me.”
