    This was our first time shopping at destination Kia. We have been watching your commercial for quite some time. I can't comment on your service department... yet because we just purchased our new vehicle today. However, if it is anything like our experience with your sales and leasing department, we are sure we are going to be well pleased. Our Sales Rep. Mel Farilien was courteous, professional, and took the time to answer all our questions. (and we had many questions) We only stopped in to look and ended up buying. We also found the leasing manager Micheal Bryan not only very polite and knowledgeable but extremely patient and helpful.

    From start to finish, my lease experience was outstanding. It didn't take all day and they even let me negotiate too. One up, Jason, lol. But seriously,... Damon, Henry, and Shaun we're very professional. Great experience. Thank you.

    Never in my life would I have imagined someone would try to DOWN sell me on a car... but Dillon listened to what was important to me and found me a car... with all the specs I wanted below my initial budget. Everyone is very friendly and stayed late to finish my deal when I decided to walk in and buy a car without an appointment (would recommend bringing a phone charger when you're ready to make a deal...).

    Andy was great with showing us a vehicle we were interested in. We were trading in a lease and looking for a new ride... He was great, no pressure at... all. Was great with helping us order our new telluride. Would highly recommend destination and Andy.
