    This Service Department is by far the best or at least one of the best that I have had the pleasure to visit. They are kind, efficient, attentive, and... a great team of employee's.

    David was extremely helpful in getting my new kia optima. He answered all my questions and went over all of the car features with me. His manager Mani... was also very nice and helpful in getting a deal done. Within a few hours I was in and out with a brand new lease. Great customer service all around.

    I got into a pretty bad accident last week and my car was totaled. I had to find new wheels quickly to keep my life on schedule. I wasn???t on the market... for a long time so didn???t really know what I wanted and what was available. After I browsed for a few possible candidates headed to the Kia Galpin dealership down in SF valley. It has a laid back no pressure environment. David greeted me and helped me to get my test drives under way. He was a great help in figuring out what was the best option for me considering my budget and the latest tech innovations. All in all it was an excellent and quick shopping and buying experience. I highly recommend David Abdullaev as a very satisfied customer.

    I had a wonderful experience purchasing my new car. I got into a pretty bad accident last week and my car was totaled. I had to find new wheels quickly... to keep my life on schedule.

    Couldn't ask for better service. My sales person, David, was so informative in explaining all the "goodies" my new vehicle had. I loved my old Kia and... love love love my new hybrid version. David has been kind enough to keep in touch to make sure I have no other questions.

    Came into Galpin KIA with absolute no expectation in buying a car. Had such a great experience dealing with Miguel. He made the entire process so easy... and smooth. Found the right car for me and my family. Thank you Miguel.

    Had a great experience purchasing a new KIA Optima LX Turbo. I could not be happier, Miguel did a great job in assisting me. Galpin is lucky to have such... a great salesman. He made the car buying experience a pleasant one!

    The team that worked with David Abdullaev was very patient and stayed until almost midnight to finish the paperwork and get the car prepped for us. They... answered all our questions and were patient when we asked again. They were very professional, friendly and courteous.

    Pilar Luna was excellent on following up and communicating with me. As I researched the Kia Niro hybrid, Pilar was low pressure and helpful during my... several visits to the dealership. She spent a lot of time with me making the decision process comfortable. Also shout out to Charles, Jaime, Joe, Elizabeth, Pilar and the entire team who worked with me to make me feel taken care of. So far I have to say this Hybrid is delivering even better mileage than the specs and it is fun to drive. I recommend anyone looking at Kia go talk with Pilar; especially if you are a woman shopping on your own. Pilar and the Galpin team over there will help you out!

    Live in Lancasterand started my day at my 1st KIA dealership with no luck. Drove to Simi Valley KIA and strike number 2. 3rd and last place was definetly... the charm. It was Galpin KIA. Grant it I was a credit challenge but from the start Miguel helped us and was very honest and upfront with me. He kept looking for solutions for me and my situation. The sales manager, Mani found a way to work it with the bank. Was actually on my way home from such a long day when Miguel called me and gave me the great news. Ended up driving back and was able to trade out of my car that I owed more than the value and got into a brand new Forte. They even stayed after the store was closed to accommodate me. Thank you Miguel and Mani for all the hard work and finding a way to get me into my new car. Loving it!!!
