Very well laid out showroom, as well as good variety of vehicles. While shopping there my wife text me that a Sportage we had looked at the day before had been reduced to the price we offered. I purchased my vehicle elsewhere.
I both bought and sold a car here recently. My sales associate CARLTON BOWEN was fantastic.
SOLD: They gave me a very fair price on a 2003 Honda CRV with roughly 180K miles. The process was quick and painless. You do not have to buy a car from them to sell a car to them. I had done my homework before and knew what it was worth and I was offered a price higher than Kelly Blue Book.
BUY: Buying a used car was more complicated. It took test driving many and lots of time on their website before I found one that met the very specific details I was looking for. I decided on CarMax because I did have a very specific car in mind that I had not been able to find private seller in the two plus months I'd been looking. Also, my sales associate CARLTON BOWEN was fantastic.He spent roughly a month helping me look at cars making calls to other dealerships and coordinating multiple test drives etc. I know having him as a salesperson made a huge difference. I had looked at other dealerships and was treated only like a wallet from the moment I entered. He worked hard to help me find what I needed in a car and was pleasant and respectful the entire time. Not at all the experience I had at other dealerships. With all of the hidden fees etc other places have, carmax was not more expensive. I was glad not to give my money to sketchy people at another place.
Got my dream car at an awesome price and the whole dealership staff felt like family by the time we left. I would absolutely purchase another car from them!
Exactly what I was looking for.

This car met my needs and a most of my wants. It’s comfortable to drive, easy to get into and out of (this can be an issue for us older folks), has good fuel economy, and the controls on the steering wheel for the radio, phone, cruise control and trip meters make me feel so safer than reaching for those things.
The staff was honest and direct. Fare and clear in what they needed and wanted. Matt the salesperson was not pushy in any way. The manager and staff were all fair. Really grateful for the costumer service!!! Thanks
Mr. Ronnie & Mr. Mike Of Universal Kia are absolutely amazing! I am grateful for their time and great customer care. They are a true example of those operating in excellence. Thanks again gent???s & Universal Kia HH Kindest regards, Natasha O.
Perfect small family car

Car is amazing. I'm a single woman. I went from a Subaru forrester to a Kia soul. Great gas mileage, great handling in all weather (haven't tried snow) I feel safe in it. ONLY 1 DRAWBACK- the storage space in the back, the trunk, is very small compaired to what I'm used to, but it is only a small drawback. The comfort makes up for it.
This was my first car buying experience, on my own. I was quite apprehensive, as I had heard horror stories about people being pressured to buy what they really didn't want by pushy salesmen. Ben Auert was friendly, professional, and patient. He took his time and made sure that I understand every part of the car buying process. At no time did I feel pressured or bullied. Ben even took the time to help me get the bluetooth/UVO app set up in my car. I now have a my first new car, a 2019 Kia Soul, and I couldn't be more pleased! Thank you Ben and Universal Kia!!!
Love this car!!

I thought I didn't want a square looking car until I drove it. So much head room and room between driver and passenger. Car is very reliable - have had no problems. The cargo space is large enough for weekly grocery shopping and the shelves under the cargo space is great for the recycle bags.
Well you get lots of help when you're looking to buy...get car home find things that don't work, contact your salesman by phone and email get no response. you would think that they would make sure everything was working before they put the car on the lot
Very nice waiting area, where I felt comfortable and I trust them to do the work right. Highly recommend Kia of Murfreesboro. The purchase was easy, as well. Very professional staff.
Most reliable car I've owned

I went from a 2014 Chrysler 300 to this car and I can say it is way better and more reliable. More gas efficient and faster! People think it is small inside until I let them get in and the say "Wow". I love my Kia Soul!
Adeeb was so understanding! They asked me what I wanted and found me the exact car and the exact package and even helped me understand how to sink my phone and an app with the new car. Everyone was so lovely but Adeeb was so patient with me and gave me a wonderful deal!
Virtually new sporty Kia Soul + Caribbean Blue

This is an excellent vehicle for all purposes. Roomy, sporty, great for all seasons and it looks great! It's still under warranty for 5 years or 60,000 miles. It's in perfect condition.
We could not have had a better experience working with Tyler Ryan at Universal Kia. From the initial call, to driving away in a new (used) car, it was as painless as it possibly could be. Tyler was friendly, patient, he listened, did what he said he would do, and was honest. He worked around our schedule and never pressured us with the ???car sales tactics??? most of us have become accustomed to when car shopping. I would have no problem recommending him to anyone I know.
Boxy looking average car
by InIN from evansville IN

It looks like a box. It has ok power and odd brakes that seem to pull harder as you go slower. Its easy to get in and out, the seats seem higher off the ground than most small cars. Visibility is ok. Sound system is ok. It has no kind of traction control at all. Overall it's just a little ok kind of car, nothing special.
The experience with Kia was simple and fast for anyone thats looking for a car. The dealers there were helpful and kind. Prices of cars are affordable for most incomes.I really look forward to working with them again.
Pretty Good Value but Some Problems
by noseybody from Spring Valley, NY

This car is very reliable. It hasn't needed any repairs in almost 2 years. The exterior design is very cool.
I like having the rear backup camera, but the image is not very sharp, and at night it's almost useless.
The suspension is lousy; I can feel every tiny bump in the road.
The fuel economy is not so good for a small car; I get 16 MPG for city driving.
The steering wheel is made of hard plastic that is uncomfortable to grip. (I bought a soft rubber piece that wraps around the steering wheel to make long trips more comfortable.)
The interior controls have some design flaws. For example, you can't set the fan to recirculate when using the front defroster. The A/C sometimes goes on when you start the car, even when it wasn't in use when you shut the car off. The headlight indicator sometimes goes on, even when the headlights are not actually on.
It has no CD or DVD player. Bluetooth works pretty well. When you play MP3s stored in the internal memory, it does not display the embedded album info correctly.
The rear cargo area is very small. I can't fit groceries from an average shopping trip without putting down the back seat.
I was a long time Tricket customer and was not sure I was going to continue with Music City Honda I had not been real impressed with some of the changes Robert changed that. He was kind, pleasant and helpful. A real professional. He restored my faith.
Best dealership I have ever been to. GRANT was very very easy to work with went through all options to make sure I got the best deal.
Soul ! with Premium Package
by John from Florida

Excellent commuter car for the urban/city dweller, lots of storage inside, tons of cup holders and places to store bottles. Large center console, storage for sunglasses. Leather interior and lots of soft surfaces with all LED lights inside make for a more upscale feel. Enough seating for 4 average sized adults. Small SUV type storage via the rear hatch with the back seats folded down. Heated and Cooled Seats are worth every single penny more so in the brutal Florida summers. I've really enjoyed the large panoramic sunroof, all the tech, Android Auto/Car Play Support, lane departure and collision warning. Factory Navigation is excellent, screen is very responsive Android Auto & Car Play take it to the next level. Infinity Sound System is amazing as are the lighted speakers up front. There's enough hamsters (164 of them) under the hood for urban driving and getting onto the interstate/toll roads at speed with relative ease.
If asked if I'd buy this car again I'd do it hands down. I almost bought a 19 model. I've taken it on the road for hours on end, to the beach, into the city out into the country. It's never hesitated nor provided any issues in the almost 3 years I've owned it. It's a quality vehicle on par with the best of them.
Choose to work with no other companies only Wholesale inc. Cavender, Lukas, and John are some awesome paperwork. This will be the second vehicle I???ve purchased with this company and as long as they keep people like this I will continue to purchase in the future.
