    We thought our sales person Pete Ruiz did very well as a sales associate and we enjoyed the sales process and working with him. The low key approach was... just right. The Soul is working out well. We both enjoy driving it. It???s comfortable, the fuel mileage is better than the specs, we???re getting 30 ??? 31 mpg driving in the city. So that???s nice. The experience was professional, friendly and enjoyable. Pete was great to work with.

    Total time from walking in the door to leaving with a brand new car was 2hrs and 10 minutes. Gregg Kasper our sales guy was an absolute pleasure to do... business with....Tom the finance guy was also wonderful. Greg took the time to show us around the shop and introduced us to everyone. We are from Cudahy and it was well worth the drive to do business with them. Thanks Gregg and Tom for a wonderful car buying experience! ¿

    Our 4 year lease on our 2015 (purchased August of 2014) was up on our Kia Sorento. We visited Ewald Kia on Friday August 27th to look at some New KIAS... and downsize a little. We met with Pete Ruiz and wanted to test drive the KIA Sportage. It was a nice ride and within an hour had leased a new 2019 vehicle, We worked with Pete and Shannon (sales manager) and both were very easy to work with and a great experience. We picked up our new vehicle and love it. Would like to add that this is the 3rd KIA we have leased through Ewald in Oconomowoc, WI. I highly recommend stopping in and checking out their vehicles. Very pleasant experience. A huge shout out and Thank You to Pete and Shannon. You both were great in helping us out. I would like to add that their service department is the best also. We took out their maintenance package for the second time and well worth the money. Excellent service and friendly staff.

    Everyone at Ewald was terrific to work with. Pete Ruiz was especially helpful, and I would recommend him to anyone searching for a vehicle. He took the... time to understand our needs, asked the right questions and provided answers to the questions we had. Pete, and Ewald in general, worked hard to keep the deal to a level that met our needs.
