    Shopping for a car couldn't have been easier. All our questions were answered about the car we purchased. Best of all we were not pressured to buy. Excellent... service.

    After making my last payment on my 36 month lease, I walked into Difeo Kia in Lakewood. Tyshawn immediately helped me, showed me the latest version of... the vehicle I had been driving for the past 3 years, let me drive it, and did a great job.

    Bought our first Kia here a month ago. No pressure and gave us a great deal from the start without the back and forth negotiation. They offered us over... the KBB value on our trade and free oil changes! Go see Kenny!

    Renata was truly a pleasure to work with! The most important thing I can say is that unlike at other dealers, I was not pressured into anything. Renata... understood exactly what I was looking for and made it happen! I am so happy with the car I purchased. Rather than just selling me a car, Renata has made sure to maintain my satisfaction with her customer service. She has been only a text or phone call away to help me with anything I need. The customer service at DiFeo Kia is truly amazing and I would recommend this dealership to everyone I know!

    Both Al and Mike went above and beyond to get me into a brand new Kia Optima. I would recommend Difeo Kia to anyone in the market for a new car.

    Kia of Lakewood on Ocean Avenue wins the heavyweight championship of the world. Tye is absolutely the man to go see if you don't want to be taken for a... ride but rather get in your ride and be on your way. He was there through all the ups and downs and all the closed doors that got slammed in our face from bank's that told us no. He never stop until he found one that said yes, he made us feel very comfortable and never made us feel like we were under pressure to buy something that we didn't want or couldn't afford. He listened to our needs and concerns and took everything into consideration made us really feel like we were having a chat with a friend rather than a dealership he did not stop until he kept his word on getting my daughter into her brand new 2018 Kia thanks a bunch Ty! We cannot forget about Mike he is above and beyond anything that I expected from finance. He fought battles for us that we would have never won on our own. I really cannot thank Mike enough, his determination has gotten my daughter driving her new car smiling I have never seen her happier thanks Mike! Char____
