    My husband and I just purchased a 2019 Kia Forte from Parkside Kia. Jeff Ford is an awesome salesman!!! We went in to possibly purchase a used car as we... didn't think a new car purchase was possible. They were not pushy and we enjoyed the process. They even stayed til 10pm to make sure we were able to leave in our brand new car. Thank you Parkside Kia and Jeff for such a wonderful car buying experience!!!

    We had a good non pressured experience. We were not sure what we wanted and had plenty of time to consider options. At the end there was a little 'you... travelled so far' pressure from the manager. But that's sales.

    Javier's fantastic! He worked very hard to meet every demand and want that we had. He was very pleasant to work with and did not come off pushy nor did... he seem like he was just there for the sake of the sale like other places I had visited! Over all we had the best experience ever!

    Jeff Ford is the best car salesman I've ever had. Seriously! No pressure tactics or trying to put me into something that I didn't want. Coming from a single... women, I've always had a difficult time finding a car dealership that treated me with complete respect. The general manager was also very courteous and professional. I purchased a 2018 Kia Forte and Kia will get my business again.

    I was completely lied to about the repairs that were to be done on my car. They told me they were going to put a new motor in my car but only put in a... remanufactured motor with my head on it.
