I went to Carmax on 4th of July. The place was not super packed, so that was great. We had a little 9th month old on tow, and were nervous that it would take us all day to shop. The only thing that took a lot of time was waiting for a sales man. Apparently, the new young guys at the front were more interested in flirting (yes flirting) with each other and playing around than realizing that we needed help or just plainly asking us if we were being helped. That really bothered me, as we wasted 30 mins just sitting dumb. The front desk girl was no help.. she was the one to tell us to sit and wait and then no where to be seen. Finally someone professional and extremely courteous walked by ... the service manager. He quickly apologized for our wait, and brought along Daniel Claudio. I am SOOOOOOOOOOOooooO thankful he did. Danny was professional, kind, humble, hard-working, and just all the way a pleasure to work with. He represented Carmax the way it should be. He took the details of what we were looking for and walked us around to cars that would fit our needs. The second car (nissan pathfinder) was a recommendation from him... and that was the car we bought. Danny if you're reading this... THANK YOU! You're such a great employee and that deserves recognition.
I made an appointment for a Saturday and was told the service would take an hour and a half. It ended up to be a four hour wait. My service representative was great and apologized, but I think this was a little excessive for a routine service.
The signage directing me where to go was not easily visible. Staff was very pleasant and helpful, especially because I wasn't sure how to use my Fidelity service benefit and Michael made it a smooth process. I thought oil changes were to happen every 3K miles but my sticker indicates nearly 5K. That concerns me, but I'll check my oil periodically to make sure its not too low.
Add hot tea or cocoa to the beverage station. Overall it was a good experience. I'll come again.
We were treated with dignity and the buying process was painless. Damien was a pleasure to work with and he even stayed late to go over all of our vehicles features with us before we left. Definitely not what you expect when buying a used vehicle. We were very pleased with choosing Jim Ellis.
I was looking for a car and I met him. He was too kind for me and explained about cars very nicely. I don't know about cars stuff but he recommend me a nice car that is very comfortable and safety. I really like his good attitude and his zeal. He is the best dealer I've ever met. No regret and I'm really thankful to him.
One of the best experiences I have had buying a car. Nate Williams gave excellent customer service and made sure I had everything that I wanted. Mark also help alot. Because of the great service from these two, I will be a Hyundai customer for life!
Mr Nathaniel Williams and the crew really was helpful in being straight forward with tge pricing, overview of the vehicle and the extra perks that comes with buying from their dealership every question was answered clearly. I appreciate and enjoyed the process
Having done my homework via Genesisowners.com for potential problems on the 2015 Hyundai Genesis (I am obsessive with my cars), I realized that my recently purchased 3.8 model was having some fluttering issues at 25-27mph. It was very hard to diagnose as the car is extremely well insulated and the fluttering only occurs in cold startups (rare in Atlanta) and under light accel/deceleration. I came to the conclusion that the driveshaft was imbalanced and/or wearing abnormally fast. I saved a few service transcripts from other owners via forums, recorded a short video, and sent it over to Billy Jung (my salesman) as well as the service department. Billy apologized profusely for selling me a "dud." Not the case (I love this car)! The car is immaculate (it was a CPO model). What kind of salesman apologizes for selling a car?! One with integrity that is for xxxx sure. Let's just say the whole thing was diagnosed, approved, replaced, in about 2-3 days. It was done so quick I couldn't believe I was visiting a Hyundai dealership... they are the best, bar none. Who needs Lexus when you have people like Billy/Bruce treating you the way they do? Billy went so far as to walk me out to the loaner car (while clearly busy). They do things right. If only other Hyundai dealerships learned from them the stigma of "Hyundai service is garbage" wouldn't be a thing in 2018. I don't really leave many reviews (I signed up just to leave a positive review post-purchase) and I'm here again leaving my service review. To potential buyers, Jim Ellis is the only way to go as far as I'm concerned in the Atlanta area. Makes me want to buy another Hyundai from them... but we already have enough cars! I guess I need to work harder... :D The company I work for recently purchased multiple Toyota Corollas as work vehicles for managers. Unfortunate as we could have taken our business to Jim Ellis... but this was before I experienced what I did while buying the Genesis. Next time... Jim Ellis all the way. Thank you everyone as always!
Shannon Smith was absolutely amazing ! In at 10, out with a brand new fully loaded car by 1. Quickest process I???ve ever seen. The finance manager hau B was also super fast and amazing. Great personalities in the Atlanta, GA location. The employees here are actually genuine, and that???s hard to find at a car dealership.. Will be recommending to friends and family!
We just bought our second Hyundai from Jim Ellis. The experience could not have been better. We worked mostly with Lucian, Shannon, and Mark, but everyone we interacted with in sales is friendly, knowledgeable, honest, and helpful. This is equally true in of everyone we have worked with in their service department. We look forward to enjoying our new 2018 Santa Fe Sport and will bring it to Jim Ellis for service because they have been servicing our 2007 Santa Fe for eleven years, and it is still running strong.
Our buying experience was easy and comprehensive at Hyundai of Cumming. Eric was knowledgeable, professional, and made both me and my husband feel comfortable with our decision. Since this was the third dealership of the day we were ready for someone to be upfront with us and that is exactly what we got. Thank you for the fabulous experience Hyundai of Cumming!
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
Everyone was very friendly and helpful. It was a great car shopping experience. Not pushy and actually wanted to help me. I would definitely buy another car there as well as recommend to others. My sales rep Matt Aeyers was wonderful as well as the finance Dept.
Got an appointment next day to see about a burning smell with my car. Turned out to be a plastic grocery bag on my exhaust. Received an emergency call about my son in law while there. They were very helpful in rushing my car, so I could get to hospital. Will do all future car service with Hyundai of Kennesaw. Very professional and efficient.
Anyone who intends to buy any sort of car needs these guys!

I first spoke with Mr. Jones by phone. I explained the car I had chosen and the amount of money I had and that I wanted to be sure it was there before I drove the 300 miles. He assured me it was and they could accomodate me. When I arrived, he was right there to meet me. They looked at my car and disappointingly could not give me the trade-in I wanted, but, in short order, they found a way to make up the $500 difference and sent me on my more than merry way. Mr. Jones told me he had played college basketball and I can truly say, he's still able to deliver a slam dunk!
