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.
Amazing car, that is fantastic to drive

We love the conform and drivability of the car. Tight steering, and very comfortable seating and car ergo-metrics. Nice milage and just fun to drive. Much roomier than expected and nice pickup.
I would recommend folks take a look at this vehicle. Kia did an outstanding job
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.
After visiting several of the typical dealerships I walked away confused and Unsatisfied. After visiting Carvana.com I picked out a vehicle to my liking and price point fill out the paperwork got approval I had my new vehicle delivered to my front door. Most typical dealerships you spend half a day walking away with an overpriced vehicle in an overpriced interest-rate. Carvana has made it an enjoyable experience and it can be done from the luxury of your Home. Thanks Carvana.
My experience with carvana was and still is very good. I wanted to sell my can a few months ago and Madison was super nice. Undirtunately I had to cancel the sell bc of personal reasons. Now I???m again in the process of selling and Madison is super patient with me and so nice!
I recommend the Mazda product and Sales rep, Elijah Taylor, great and great. Ben M in finance ruined the whole experience because he threw a tantrum when I did not wish to hear and or purchase extended warranty product. To the point of demanding why I would not listen to his whole sales pitch and confronting my spouse as to why she would not say anything. He has issues but I am choosing to give Elijah the 5 stars he deserves. The other guy is creepy and should never be left alone with customers.
Great car with one MAJOR issue

I love my Soul, had it for almost a year. However I will never consider another Soul unless Kia fixes this issue. The issue: it doesn't support Google. The assistant button on the stereo only recognises Siri and ignores the other Major Assistant. But the Kia Optima works with both. It's quite annoying and almost turns me off the KIA experience... Almost makes me want to look at another brand once my lease is up.
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
Excellent choice and decision

Going from a truck to a car is rare but I did it and it was the right thing. I love my new car and everything it offers. A wise choice in a Kia Soul.
It will take a week to get your car looked at because they are so busy, but they fixed my truck quickly and properly with daily updates. Great service. And I highly recommend buying the 2-3 year warrenty. I'm very very thankful I did.
It’s not an SUV
by KensliSB from Chicago, IL

I thought I wanted a Kia Soul for a couple years. Once I test drove it I realized it is not an SUV so if that’s what you’re wanting I’m not sure it would be the car for you. Overall I think the interior was comfortable but it rides pretty low like a sedan. The interior design is okay but it almost seems as if it’s trying too hard to be a cool car. I would still recommend it to someone who knew they were not getting an SUV with this purchase.
Great place to buy a vehicle. The salesperson (Mike) was helpful from our first phone conversation, during the decision making process, and the closing of the deal was easy and professional. I will definitely return here to buy my next vehicle.
Best Compact Car on the market

My Soul (turbo boost 2018) continues to exceed my expectations in every way- including reliability, interior design and space comfort, mpg, stability on long trips, fog lights, overall size to help parking in smaller spaces and style. Very happy with this car!
Mike was very easy to work with. The dealership found a solution that we were happy with when the car we were interested was sold. We would definitely buy from them again. We got a great car for our 16 year old at a better price than we could find anywhere else.
Absolutely love my 2018 Kia Soul

I purchased and 2 weeks later my sister and I drove 2200 miles to and from Oklahoma to see our father. It was very comfortable, plenty of leg room, handled the mountains great and was great on gas.
I love to drive and certainly love driving this car.
I was shopping online for a late model Nissan Sentra without too many miles and I went through many different websites trying to find the right car. I found the car that I was looking for at this dealer and the price was very competitive. I worked with Ross on my purchase and everything went smooth and I am extremely pleased with the car that I purchased.
We first went to another Carmax, told salesman what we wanted and he
Then tried to sale us something else. We then came to Rivergate Carmax told them what we were looking for and the ynpointed to a part of the lot and said salesman will be the shortly. No pressure in and out within 90 minutes with new van. No money down. Will definitely come back when get ready to buy again.
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.
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.
