This car is a really reliable car with great gas mileage. I put a lot of miles on the car so far, and it continues to work great for me. It can be tricky in the rain or snow, but what car isn’t’ It really has been a safe and easy car to drive.
Great salesman; friendly, pleasant, very paitient, knowledgeable, great suggestions, made the shopping experience way better. The actual purchasing transaction took way too long to complete .
Clean lines..always looks new

Always looks new...has lots of room..easy to transport things. The hatchback is a wonderful car. The car feels like a mini Sports car, it definitely has a kick to it.
Was out of town and had a blow out in a front tire. Mentioned this to the Service Manager, Phil, and he got me into service in 5 minutes. Everything was completed in a few minutes. I was back on the road. Excellent.
Super reliable and sporty
by Emily from Vancouver, WA

I just recently purchased this car, and it’s techncially the first car I’ve owned in my name. It’s very comfortable inside and spacious, lots of room for guests and storage. It heats up quickly in the winter, and cools down just as fast, and I love the options I can choose from by pressing buttons on my steering wheel. Really love the sporty engine in this car and it can reach the speed I need to go in just a second or two. I think I may stick to Kia’s for some time.
The sales person, Chuck, was very professional, friendly and courteous. He was very knowledgeable. He made the process of buying a used car very easy.
Not worth the money and check the value before you
by Notafan89 from Toledo OH

I bought this car and am making huge payments on it, when I wanted to trade it in for something it wasn't even half the value of what it was worth, it was 17000 dollars and we have to pay 31000 because of interest which make our payments 445 a month and when we wanted something better they said if the car was in immaculate condition it would only be worth 7000 dollars like really. The first time we road it on the expressway we could hear the wind coming in from the outside, and then 2 months after driving it we needed coolant, come to find out 2 years later and when our warranty was almost up we had a bad water pump, I would prefer an older Pontiac sunfire because that car lasted me more than 400000 miles on it, I think this one will only last 150000 because at 61000 it seems the transmission is going bad already and it just seems like its about to fall apart do not get this car even if it's the only one you get approved for!
from greeting in lot to close of deal...just terrific!!

From the moment Adam met us in the lot, the experience was a learning one. He is so knowledgable about the product I was interested in and he listened to what I wanted. He brought two cars up for comparison, knew the difference about each one, and there was no "dazzle-dazzle"! Extremely honest and forthright with his answers.
A small sedan - both sporty and classy!
by Realtor Ed from Washington DC
December 18, 2018
I have a Forte with the larger engine option and the 'sport' package upgrade. Many other competing brands couldn't give me what I wanted: 4-wheel disc brakes, a powerful engine, leather seating, sun/moon roof, alloy wheels, fat tires -- all in a car that still looks like a classy little sedan, and not like some gaudy 'sports coupe'.
My husband hates the stiff 'sport-tuned suspension' but as a driver I feel like this car is *really fun* to drive. When I have to drive other cars with softer suspensions, they now feel vague and slightly hard to control. I would recommend this car to any one who (a) likes to drive (b) likes good value (c) wants a small urban sedan that is not a micro-car. I would also recommend buying a car like this with options/upgrades -- the basic Forte model looks and acts a little frumpy, compared to mine.
We. Quit using this dealership 5 years ago based on their high pressures sales techniques- swore we would never go back to Germaine.
with new ownership we stopped by for a second price comparison -frankly not expecting much.we talked with Austin and 20 minutes later we bought a new Tacoma from him. No pressures , honorable sales person- great manager, perfect and easy experience- VERY impressed!
Get over 40 mpg. Low maintenance costs
by Coach from Fernley, nv
November 13, 2018
Great commuting vehicle, as i get up to 46 mpg on trips. Comfortable for the whole family. Low maintenance, well designed, and a pleasure to drive.
My request-need was a little bit unusual and everyone handled it seamlessly. The technician was very good and handled my car with a high level of care. I didn't catch his name. The technician and service advisor deserve a raise or bonus!
Really fuel efficient vehicle and easy maintenance
by MichaelE from San Diego, CA
December 7, 2018
Its pretty good bang for the buck. The only issue that I've had with it is the plastic/rubber caps used to secure panels. I drive the front bumper over a cement block on a parking lot, and as I was leaving the bumper rubbed against the cement block. The ended up popping out the rubber cap/clips and the inner wheel well panels came off, rubbing against my tries and causing smoke. That should be designed a bit more with common parking mishaps in mind.
I had a great experience turning in my lease and getting a new lease. All my wants were addressed as well as budget. I highly recommend this dealership.
First Car Brought for Myself
by Riarie from Dayton, Ohio
October 24, 2018
This car when first look into had all the features I wanted and drove great. After 4 months, engine goes out. 2 months later another part of the engine goes out. I you get this car only go to a Kia dealership to fix because everyone else is clueless. Even then tell them to check Everything. It was awesome for the kinda 6 months that I had it. I loved it but the constant engine problems aren't worth it. I am trading it in.
James was a very down to earth VIP specialists. His no pressure info was easy to listen to. My wife and I had many annoying experiences in New York buying cars. James was as smooth as holiday egg nog! Great fun!

Average at best
by MJMSR from Indiana
January 9, 2019
Very roomy for the size, but sits too low to the ground. Everything is plastic. It's definitely a 4 cylinder and acceleration is fair. Very easy to drive, actually fun to drive. Gas mileage is pretty good, about 35 combined - 40 on highway. Only had 4/5 months - 4600 miles. We'll see.
From the moment I got in touch with the dealer to the moment i finished to buy the car they were great, JD was very accommodate and ease to deal with
Kia really makes great automobiles!
by Michael Ballard from Surprise, Az
November 18, 2018
I've owned four new Kia's. Everyone of them have been excellent vehicles. Over the years I've owned over 50 new vehicles and Kia has been right at the top of the list for being wonderful automobiles to have owned.
Hassle Free Service at Crown Kia. Recent appointment was honored, and for this visit they had me in/out in less time than I anticipated. They have a good waiting area with tables so you can work/use a laptop, free coffee, water, packaged snacks, TV, free wifi, a work area, etc. Michael is friendly and kept me up to date as the work progressed. I rated the pricing as average as this is a dealer with "dealer pricing" that is higher than an independent shop. But as with everything, you get what you pay for.
Most reliable car I driven
by Kaybee from Lakewood WA
January 5, 2019
This car met all my needs most liable car I have driven and owned good on gas and mileage plenty of legroom from front to back
It was amazing. The people were very nice and I felt comfortable. The used car had been thoroughly inspected and I felt confident that I would be driving an almost new car. They did their best to find a monthly payment I could afford.
The best value and the most comfortable car
by Mommkatt from Greeneville Tennessee.
November 3, 2018
This car is exceeds all my needs and is one of the most comfortable cars I have had. You would never know that this was a supposed to be a compact car by the leg room and head room in the car. I chose the four door model and my family and I can travel in comfort with great gas mileage. I am 5'9" and the driver's side fits me so well. The seats are comfortable and I never have fatigue after driving long distances. My grown sons are 6'4" and 6'5" and they have seat room and head room and lots of leg room in the car (even in the backseat) also. I feel that I can take my grandchildren anywhere safely and they have enough room for them and all their things they carry. The car has only needed routine maintenance and the dealership has been great in taking care of my car's needs. I have never had any problem with this car at all.
