My husband and I have bought 3 vehicles from Athens Ford. It has always been a very good experience! Jamison and Shannon are always a pleasure to work with! I would highly recommend Athens Ford dealership to family and friends!
Best car for price
by Jduv8 from Wichita, Kansas

As far as the amenities you receive with a Kia Optima, this car provides you with the most bang for your buck hands down. Extremely satisfied so far.
Noah came through with our selling deal. He coordinated some service work promised in my deal of my used vehicle purchase. Service dept needs some better human interaction. (mostly in driving up to the doors). Today's keys are a pain. Dealerships should supply 2 sets of keys. Putting a car up for sale should be looked at closer by the techs. My idling issue had to be dealt with after purchase. A bit inconvenient, but Noah gave us a loaner.
Most reliable car I've ever owned.

This car meets all my daily needs. Plus some. To include mega leg room in front and back. Has 2 cigarette lighter plug ins. plus a usb plug in.
Our sales person, Noah, was very personable. We had some concerns about the vehicle that were properly and logically taken care of. Overall, it was a great process. I would highly recommend this dealership.
SECOND KIA I OWN
by TEDWESS from LADYSMITH, VA

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 came in to buy a new car after my old one broke down on me in Monroe. I was only supposed to be in Athens for a day and in turned into two. Tahir helped me pick out the perfect car for me, completely new, little down payment, and great interest rate! The process was so fast, I didn't even realize we were done. The longest part was waiting for it to be detailed at the end. (There was a massive truck in front of me, so it took a minute). If I had to do it again (hopefully not for a while), I would make the trip out to Athens. It's worth great service with a non-pushy salesman.
Very Beautiful, Functional Car
by hollyjo89 from Bowling Green, Missouri

This car is so roomy, the trunk is over sized and provides more than enough room. The back seat is giant. There is so much leg room its unreal. The car drives so smooth, and gets great gas mileage. There are vents in the back along with usb ports. The XM Radio rewinds, yes you saw that right. It rewinds. The HD radio is a very nice touch but I do not like that in order to use apple car play you must have your phone plugged in. That seems old school considering that it has bluetooth.
It was a joy to work with Scott at Athens Ford. I was looking for a new car and I found the perfect one! Scott was able to help me find a vehicle that matched my needs and my wallet. Everyone I met was friendly and courteous. I???m looking forward to using their services for regular maintenance.
Best gasoline mileage of any vehicle we have.
by William R. Lee from Rosenberg, Texas

Very comfortable. Plenty of room and, yet it does not feel like a big car. . Fun to drive and loaded with safety equipment such as backup camera and lane recognition warning.
Scott, our salesperson, was professional, personable and easy to work with. I did not feel pressured into anything I did not want. Both my wife and I are comfortable recommending the Athens Ford dealership to family and friends.
This is my 3'rd Kia Optima an they are great cars.
by Joe C. from Thornhill, Ontario

I would highly recommend this car based on performance, comfort and safety. It is very reliable in all kinds of weather and is really a pleasure to drive. It has all the features of the more expensive cars and is always very reliable. I believe that it is an excellent value.
So there I was on the phone with a dealer telling me it would be 3 wks to get this recall issue fixed on my 2018 Charger. When I decided to look for another dealer I found Banks Crossing and gave them a call. When I spoke with John on the phone he said he could get me taken care of in just a few days! My experience today was awsome with John and JB. Not ONLY did they get me in sooner but in and out in less than an hour. Thanks for stepping above and beyond to make sure the customer is taken care of! I will surely be back and recommend family and friends here!
Afraid it would fail me

Ran really rough and very uncomfortable. Felt like I was driving a tinker toy. Decent car for a teenager or college student but not for adults. My passengers looked awfully cramped in the backseats
Excellent customer service. We have had all 3 of our cars serviced at this location. Very friendly and work was done in a timely manner.
Best value for a luxury SUV out there
by CrazyBiker from Fremont, CA
January 4, 2019
It has luxury quiet interior with luxury features and warranty at mainstream prices with great reliability. Can't get better than that and I crosshopped against XC-90, MDX and QX-60. It has the most efficient use of space with ample legroom for all 3 rows while keeping the exterior dimensions small and with good handling and easy to park/commute in. Only wish it had a bit more cargo space
They meet and surpassed all expectations. I would highly recommend this group of guys, Aaron and Chris, to any one in search of a vehicle.
Great and Inexpensive Sedan
by CarFan from Grapevine
August 25, 2018
Meets all of my commuting needs. It is great on gas and pretty sporty for a 4 cylinder. It gets 350 miles per tank and generally costs about $35 to fill the tank. I love the manual option on the automatic too, comes in handy in rain or changing lanes.
Great room in it too. Comfy ride from passenger and a lot of trunk room. Not as quiet as a more expensive sedan but that's expected with a car costing $14k.
I would purchase again given the chance if you are looking for a entry or first car purchase as a young adult or family looking for an inexpensive option for your needs.
Steve Manley was my Service Advisor to do some repairs to my F250. Steve streamlined the process and handled every aspect of my visit and repair like it was his own truck. He answered every question with detail, and he kept me informed on what was going on with my truck. Thank you Steve, I very much appreciate your hard work!!
I Love Kia!

I've been wanting this vehicle for three years now and now that I have it, I'm so happy!!!! Kia have amazing vehicles! You've got to get one!!!!
Looking for a very particular truck. Bob Benson was the only dealer of 6 I talked to willing to go get it at the price we agreed to. Picking up my new F250 Friday. Awesome job - Thank You Bob and staff!!
Most reliable car I’ve owned.
by Steve from Beech Grove, IN
December 31, 2018
Great family car. Lots of room for luggage in the hatch, and wonderful for travel. As fast as it needs to be, handles well, and is quite comfortable. Best part of owning a KIA is that service is extremely reasonably priced. With the frequent coupons sent from the dealership, you can get an oil change, tires rotated, multi point inspection, and fluids filled for around $50.
I went to view a vehicle I had seen online and within an hour I had purchased it. The salesman Shane Peale was wonderful to work with. He was knowledgeable, courteous, and efficient. I got a good price on the car. I obtained financing on the spot, and within an hour I was the proud owner.

Thank You Kia
These guys really know how to make a customer feel special. Ricky spent time with me and made sure that I was 100% happy with the vehicle. Their price was the best around and the whole experience was very easy.

Steve was very helpful and made sure that our repair was quick and as affordable as possible. They have a comfortable waiting area and everyone was very nice.
Most reliable car I've owned
by Princess Obong from Atlanta, Ga

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!
Danielle Joyce was an excellent representation for Athens Bulldog Kia! She is very professional and personable, and my wife and I were very impressed! We will definitely be back! Charles D and Lynn Patton Colbert, Ga.

Leased a 2015 K900’s in August 2015.
by Moconno from Delray Beach, FL
January 12, 2019
Enjoyed it for 3 years and turned it in. Could not find anything for the money that compared to the K900 so I bought a never titled dealer luxury model. Flying to up to Chicago the drive it to Florida next week. Have owned BMW, Audi and others but the Kia delivers a great and reliable car without breaking the bank. It maybe not quite a Lexus LS but comes close for a lot less money.
