I came to the dealership not even in the market for a car. Our car was in for service and we had a rental for a week, which I naturally fell in love with. I decided I loved it so much that I"d check out some of the other models and when I did so, Colin Unterkofler introduced me to the car I ended up buying. I not only love my new car, but I ad such an amazing experience working with Colin while purchasing it - he's friendly, down to earth, easy to chat with, and really cares about what your concerns and needs are when it comes to your vehicle so that you are sure to walk away with what you need. I never felt pressured into choosing a vehicle, and felt comfortable that I had seen all my options before making my decision. I walked away thrilled with my choice in both my vehicle and my salesman! I couldn't recommend either any more.
I was contacted very quickly by a Hertz rep, and he was able to get me in for a test drive that weekend. Even though I didn’t end up buying the car I was interested in, I would recommend this dealer based on their friendly, professional assistance in my car search.
After reading some reviews that said things like "stay away!" and "don't trust anything they say", my wife and I decided to roll the dice and drive 3 hours to get a car that was advertised at an unbeatable price. I had talked to my salesman, Dick Bailey, on the phone a few times prior to the trip to Leesburg to confirm fees, price, and details of the car. Long story short, it was over 98 degrees in the showroom because their AC had failed a few days earlier. They had a small crew of dedicated sales and administration guys there to take care of customers like me. The car was exactly as advertised, in like-new condition, and the fees were as posted on the website. Following the test drive, the entire purchasing process took less than 90 minutes. My wife loves the car, and the identical car (with higher mileage) is sitting at a nearby dealer for $5000 more. Glad we rolled the dice.

I???d recently purchased a new Discovery using my financial institution car buying program at Land Rover Chantilly???s certified dealer. KZ was able to address all my concerns and find my Discovery within minutes of walking in. As an active duty military member I was given the attention needed from the Financial Department by going above and beyond and completing the required paperwork in order to register the vehicle in my home state of FL saving me additional $$$. No haggling, No hesitation, No gimmicks.
Was having constant headliner rattling noise either from headliner or panoramic roof. First took vehicle to Tyson's Corner Mercedes-Benz, Service Writer assistant manager Told me the noise was coming from the headliner and needed to be replaced which requires removing the front windshield which mostly break on the removal process and replaced with a non Mercedes-Benz original acoustic windshield. I decided I needed a second opinion service appointment at Mercedes-Benz of Chantilly. With a good news phone call message from service advisor: Cristian Grijalva that the headliner was not the issue it was the panoramic roof assembly parts that needed to to lubed. The headliner/roof noise is now gone. "Thank you MB Chantilly"
Ronnie Naman was very professional and wonderful to work with. Very satisfied with the buying experience. He quickly accepted my leased car and showed me the car I was looking for. I was out of the dealership very quickly.
Zubed Chowdhury was a well mannered & courteous sales rep to deal with. Excellent sales person..
Finance Manager was good too. Very soft spoken & polite.
However, I have one question that could not be answered by your team members. On my purchase of GLC300 last week I was charged taxes which were neither explained to me nor were explained/deciphered on sales order. When I went back & asked reason for that I was told it is Louden county(LC) tax (0.17%).
Unfortunately, I could not get an answer/explanation for
1. Why LC tax was levied on my purchase when to my knowledge dealership location & my purchase is in Chantilly.
2. Even if it is to be charged then why it is not shown clearly/explicitly on sales order?
I am sure your team members must be doing what they have been trained/told to do but this ambiguity in customer dealing leaves a bad taste after good experience with sales person.
I certainly expect an explanation for it & i am open to update if I am missing anything.
If my observation is correct then it should be rectified ASAP & I should be compensated suitably.
I hope someone out there reads it & acts/responds.
What a refreshing experience compared to the crooks at some of the other places!!! Just walk in and ask for John Clampitt for a NO bait and switch, NO ridiculous tacked on fees, NO run around, NO gimmicks, NO pushing you to something you don't want, and NO pressure car buying . Everything was fair and honest from start to finish. Johns knowledge of the cars they have is truly staggering. I must say so far my interaction with everyone there has been excellent! If only other places were this good I could have saved a week of my life not having to deal with clowns and crooks... I finally found an honest organization. I've gotten a straight deal at one other dealership, but they don't sell fords...
Thank you immensely for allowing me this opportunity to thank you for an awesome new car buying experience. Thanks to you, I'm now the proud owner of one of the greatest new luxury sedans in the world. Additionally, knowing that you'll continue to take good care of it during my ownership, assures me satisfying Peace of Mind.( Special Kudos to you all). Additionally, I'd like to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to Ms. Anly Renda who expertly made the whole purchase happen. After she presented me with a variety of Lincolns that may fit my needs, we concluded that the best fit would be the Continental-and I'm extremely glad. After the selection, she found every way to saves which consequently led to a magnificent purchase. **Again, continued appreciation for everyone's expertise, dedication, and professionalism.
Dominic was great to work with. I found out about the dealership from a friend who has purchased 4 vehicles from there, and I have told several people that they should check consider it when they decide to purchase their next car truck.
I did not have a nail in tire prior, my car ride as not noisy or bumpy. I was told I needed tires and after coming for the main this that was needed I left and all of sudden the noise began. I got out to see what was going on and my tire had a huge nail. How ironic the dealer told me earlier I needed tires $595, however did not state that there was a nail in one. I did not have a problem riding prior to dealer. I guess that's a tactic to get you to buy from them. They have lost a customer will not purchase another Kia.
Everyone of the people I dealt with at Kia of Bowie were kind and helpful to me! I had been lied to at Kia of Easton and Woodbridge so was very greatful for the treatment I received at Kia of Bowie! They all went out of their way to get me the car I wanted for the price I wanted! Thanks to Mike Izadi, Steven Jones, Anthony Vanchieri and Daniel Leeds! All Great People!!!
