Our salesmen Kenny was very kind and caring and made our buying process easy. Thank you Kenny from Scott and Olivia. Plus Kenny was very personable and tried to get us the best deal.
Great car with one MAJOR issue
by Buzzsawjones from Deltona, Fl
January 3, 2019
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.
My Review of Gateway Kia of North Brunswick Pamela Gray
Reason For Visit
"Highly recommend this dealership!"
First and foremost, Sean Lynch is the Salesman to see! I needed a larger vehicle as I frequently drive my three grandchildren around at the same time. I was already in a KIA Soul and loved the car. The size was just not working. I was just about 1/3 of the way through my financing, so we were pretty sure we wouldn't be able to trade up. My husband was approached by Sean upon hi arrival at the dealership. Ethan liked him right away. He was easy to talk to, not pushy and willing to understand where we were coming from. Within minutes, Ethan was driving a Sorento. It was perfect, three rows of seats and back up cam, plus a few extras. When I got there, Mr. Lynch was equally cordial, and was happy to tell me that a car was on the horizon! But...... I didn't like the color! Sean immediately got on the phone to the surrounding dealers and promptly found the interior and body colors I wanted. We had plans for the evening, so Sean offered to drive our new car to our house, so that we didn't have to stay and wait. Our beautiful new Sorento was waiting in our driveway upon our return! Thank you Sean Lynch for making a very good car dealership into an awesome place to purchase your new car! You must check it out and ask for Mr. Lynch!

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with my potential buying possibilities with your dealership. I would highly recommend this dealer to both my friends and family.
I just want to say that academy Honda was a very straight forward dealership when it came to pricing and their service was great . I came in originally to purchase a used Honda Accord and ended up leaving with a new accord and couldn???t be happier ! Bryan was very easy to work with and went over all the features of the new car with me .
Soul Perfect For Tall Person
by OwnASoul from Apalachin, NY

The Soul Really surprised me the with how much room it had. I am 6'5" tall and I did not feel cramped. It is a real joy to drive. It is even comfortable for me on a long trips despite the short wheel base. I wish the gas mileage was better. I average about 27mpg for all around driving and 30 on the highway. I have the Soul ! which has the 18" wheels and the premium sound system and sun roof. Nice little big car!!!!
I am so delighted with this dealership! They answer any of your questions, show you everything you should know about a certain car and you can be 100% sure it wasn't ever burnt in a fire or dumped in a lake!

I absolutely love this vehicle. Just took it on a road trip and loved every trip of it. My kids enjoy the spacious back seats. The speakers are great and we love the color changing effect around them. It’s just an all around great car.
Very easy experience getting a car from Sam...He was patient and knowledgeable about the car we wanted...When we had more questions he bought his manager over to try and accomodate us the best he could.
We paid and drove off with a great car!
Would reccomend others to go here
Most reliable car I've owned
by Princess Obong from Atlanta, Ga
January 12, 2019
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!
I have 1 ISSUE with my service because it was a bumper taped and no passenger side mirror replaced with a mini refectory mirror that doesn't fit nor go to the car
Soul ! with Premium Package
by John from Florida
January 9, 2019
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.
Jeff is an exception to the car purching Salesperson, very patient, knowledgeable of his various models and goes beyond customer satisfaction in all aspects customer service. I've been a Mitsubishi owner for 8 different purchases and I must say after finding this dealership and my New Sales consultant I will be referring them to my family and friends as a No Gimmick No pressure Real type of car buying experience. Thanks again to Jeff for a great New car experience..:)
Most reliable vehicle I have owned
by KimDC from De Soto

Love this vehicle! Easy to get in and out of. Comfortable to drive. Has a lot of room inside. Has lots of features that really make it classy.
Just recently purchased a 2015 Jeep Cherokee here, It was probably the best buying experience I've had buying a car from a dealership. They are quick, don't make you wait around long hours and the kindest people work here. I had Consatine as my salesmen and he was awesome! He didn't rush me while cleaning out my car and kept us entertained while we were waiting for the response from the banks. The cars here are pristine, I was so happy to come here after seeing horrible cars from other dealers. Consatine was also awesome with helping make sure I got into the car I truly wanted and was patient with me when I kept asking to see other vehicles.
I will definitely be back in the future for my next vehicles
My Favorite Car of All Times
by CFlynn from Scottsdale, Arizona
January 11, 2019
The Kia Soul is the best car I've ever had. It runs smoothly, handles well, gets decent gas mileage and is the most darling car of them all. I plan to get another when this one wears out.
My wife and I just stopped by Last Monday to investigate a lease price on a new Rogue. Had no real intentions of purchasing then due to the fact that we still had 3 lease payments to make on our Altima. We were greeted By Sales Associate Tim Kaplan, He asked what our intentions were & explained our options in depth. He was very patient & very knowledgeable in regard to the Rogue models as well as the amenities & trim levels that were available. We spent a good 45 minutes to an hour looking for a vehicle and then test driving one. We did not expect to take a Rogue home that night, however after negotiating with Tim and then with the store manager Tyler Forzani getting involved, we decided to lease our vehicle that night. A very nice experience and both Tim & Tyler were wonderful to deal with. I did not get involved in the financing portion of the transaction as my wife handled that part. However, she said that the finance manager Pete S. was very friendly and helpful while explaining all of the transaction details also. While I waited for the vehicle to be readied for delivery I spent time chatting with another very friendly sales associate Charlie Gheya. All were concerned with our needs and very professional ; all around nice guys. Would purchase here again. Thanks Guys !!! Al T.
Amazing car, that is fantastic to drive
by fburghokie from fredericksburg va
December 26, 2018
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
Encouraging and friendly initial sales contact. No pressure during the test drive as the potential buyer is allowed to drive the car without the sales representative. However the sales approach heats up shortly after returning from the test drive and the negotiations are anything but low key. The tag team approach is employed after the first sales estimate was refused. I appreciated the sales representative attempts to lower the monthly payment but not the accompanying pressure to close the deal. As the evening progressed it was also not possible to fully inspect the car before driving it off the lot and there were a few nicks and scratches that were visible in my driveway the next morning. However I realize it is a used car and as such will not be perfect. The staffs approach upon arriving at the show room is out going and friendly but it quickly changed to a shark attack once I showed any interest in the car. They have a very nice facility with lots of excellent and well maintained vehicles to offer the public and competitive prices.
I love my soul!

This car is awesome! Even though it looks tiny on the outside, it’s very spacious inside! It’s eco friendly with great gas mileage. It’s actually fun to drive! Love my Kia Soul!
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.
Perfect small family car
by Hannah.beth from Largo, fl
January 7, 2019
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.
Will look here first the next time I need to buy a car. Actually enjoyed the experience. Good deal of just the car I wanted. Rami took care of everything. Friendly, attentive, accommodating, efficient...normally the car buying experience is long and uncomfortable...not with Rami. Defiantly recommend.
I test drove e a Kia soul car
by Samantha from Danville
December 21, 2018
Just loved the Kia soul cars never had one but I always wanted on used Kia soul I would love to win one hope to some day
Very professional to deal with. Answered any and all questions. Honest about the car. No pressure. Great with financing and extended warranty. Would go back.
I love my Soul!
by mwalkerg from Washington, DC

This is a fantastic vehicle. You get a lot for the price and it is just cute as heck! My only complaint would be that it gets terrible gas mileage in the city and sometimes has difficulty going from nearly stopped to highway speeds quickly (when you need to merge into traffic). But I just truly love this car!
My work was done at MVP today. All my work that was and will be again, has been done with great care. I will recommend MVP for all custom work. :):):)
Exactly what I was looking for.
by The Celtic Dwarf from Brooklet, Georgia

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.
George B was my sales representative who provided me with excellent customer service in selecting my new vehicle. He made the trade-in process and financing very easy for me. I appreciate all his great work and I am very happy with choosing your dealership.
Virtually new sporty Kia Soul + Caribbean Blue
by LoveTheKia! from Sioux Falls, South Dakota
November 12, 2018
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.
Ron Barahona was a great salesman. Joe G. Sales Manager was also great. Both were easy to work with. This is my Mom's 4th Sonata as she says "this car saved my life". She was involved in an accident sometime ago car was totaled by another driver. She and my Grandmother were saved by the safety and design of this vehicle. Thank you for the experience again. We will be back soon. Tommy Horniacek
SECOND KIA I OWN
by TEDWESS from LADYSMITH, VA
December 21, 2018
JUST AS RELIABLE AS MY 2007 KIA SPECTRA SX. GOOD MILEAGE PER GALLON, PLENTY OF POWER. LOTS OF LEG ROOM BOTH FRONT AND BACK. CONVENIENT TOOL TRAY IN THE BACK
I went about two months ago to lease a CHR-X and traded in my venza. Service was excellent, I was very happy with my deal!
Love this car!!
by L Peach from Round Rock, TX

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.
The candor of my salesman was a refreshing change. He explained everything in a no nonsense way. There wasn’t the usual back and forth to the manager.
This car is surprisingly roomy and comfortable.
by JeremyInbarefootbay from Micro, FL

The Soul will shock you. It has a ton of space. It also does well on gas. If you drive well enough you can get close to 27 mpg.
