We ended up not buying a car through Sweeney, but not because of anything they did - we were looking for a pre-owned car in a brand they don’t generally sell. They had one on the lot and Michael Meyer answered all my questions and was really helpful, but the timing didn’t work out on my part. We ended up buying a certified pre-owned from that brands dealer, but we will definitely keep Sweeney in mind for future car purchases!
I have worked in the car business for the past 9 years so I'm very critical when it comes to the car buying experience. I almost didn't buy from them because I was apprehensive because of their review rating. However, the deal on the vehicle was worth trying Jake Sweeney out and I'm very happy with my experience with them. My sales person was Brent and he was a straight shooter, very thorough, and an excellent communicator; which is qualities you want in a sales person. The finance manager was DJ, he had the same great qualities as Brent, was not pushy about warranties, and got us in and out in a good amount of time. There is nothing worse than having the car buying experience soak up your whole day, and with them I was in and out under two hours. DJ also got me a fantastic rate on my SUV, my insurance company's APR quote was almost double what DJ got me.
I would not hesitate to purchase another vehicle from Jake Sweeney. I got a great deal, had an awesome experience with the staff, they have strong financing available, and they are respectful of your time.
I will start by saying that Brian in Fiat service is WONDERFUL he is always attentive and available to answer any questions. I went in for an oil change and headlight repair. While waiting I started browsing cars and met Pete. Pete was initially attentive and discussed with me purchasing a new car. I advised Pete that I was upside-down in my current loan. Pete said that I may qualify for a certified new car. I picked out a car and it went downhill from there, Pete became distracted by phone calls, visiting customers, and another customer that he had left on the lot. I suggested to another sales person that he should take over with me and let Pete deal with everyone else. Pete then advised me that I would only receive 1 hard inquiry on my credit report I then should him where Equifax had already notified me of 3 inquiries. He then said that my Husband needed to be present so I should come back, I advised him that my spouse did not need to be present so he eventually obtained permission via text from my spouse. Then he made me feel that I should have $5000 to put as a downpayment after I told him that it was $500. Then he told me that finance had 5 other loans that he was working on (hmmm i did not see any other customers) and again I should come back (i get the feeling he is trying to get rid of me) finally he said that he would also need paystubs- I told him this was not the first time I have purchased a car and they do not need paystubs until the end. I finally gave up and left. As a side note there was 1 finance person in the office and several of the sales people were going into the office to discuss personal business, perhaps if they left him alone he would have gotten more accomplished.
I live in Columbus and was a bit apprehensive about purchasing a car out of town. Scott was my salesman and did a fantastic job to ease my mind! Great deal, great service and highly knowledgeable about the vehicle I wanted. Communicated with me via email and telephone and answered all my questions. I intend to return for my next purchase. Highly recommended!
Kenny was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, attentive, and detail oriented. He took the time to make sure my questions were answered and made sure I had all of the information I needed. Kenny made the car buying process seamless and exceptional! The managers (AJ & Joey) were equally as friendly, professional, and accessible throughout my car buying process.
Ryan had the vehicle waiting for us when we arrived. He was more than knowledgeable about the vehicle that we were test driving. We didn't get the, "I'll have to check on that" routine. Once we decided, the process was within reason and the dealership went out of their way to find the best deal on financing. Before we left, they rewashed the vehicle, topped off the fuel, and dropped off our rent-a-car for us. Coming from Lexington, we were quite satisfied with our purchase.
My family and I were in the market for a new vehicle and Kia was one of the brands we were looking at. After driving several, we decided on the Kia Soul because of price, overall quality and safety scores. Working with Steven and Donte at Jake Sweeney Kia, we felt our needs were properly addressed. Donte worked hard to get to the number that we were comfortable spending and as a result, we left the dealer with 2 brand new Kia Souls, one for my wife and one for my son to take to college. After having them for a couple of weeks now, we couldn't be happier with our purchase. All my wife can talk about is how happy she is with her new car. I would recommend both the Kia product and the staff at Jake Sweeney Kia to anyone looking to purchase a vehicle as this will be the firest place we will go when my daughter heads off to college in a few years.
I just wanted to say thanks for such a great experience I had in purchasing my 4th vehicle from Porsche/Volvo of the Village. My salesman Kenny Cunningham is the best! I trade in-and-out of cars frequently, and I was looking to purchase a 718 Cayman. He went out of his way to get me the perfect car from a dealer several hundred miles away. He also gave me the strongest trade-in number for my C7 Grand Sport. I am over-the-top happy with the new car and will only buy from this dealer and specifically Kenny in the future. My next car will be a 911 base or a 718 Boxster GTS, and I’m hoping I can hold onto my recent purchase for a while...not sure that’s going to happen.
If you’re looking for a new or pre-owned Porsche, visit Porsche of the Village and please ask fo Kenny - he’ll take great care of you!
