I was a hundred miles from home and 200 miles from my starting point when my BMW blew a tire. It was a holiday and I was in the middle of nowhere with all service closed. I called the BMW 800 number and thankfully they towed my car to BMW of Bloomington. I received a call Tuesday morning and learned I had to get new tires and they also performed the regular maintenance. I was concerned and surprised because my car had just been in my BMW service center for maintenance in July. I never thought once that my tires were bad. BMW 800 service got me a LIFT ride home, 110 miles with a wonderful BMW driver that told me Bloomington BMW was the best.
I had no idea how I would get my car home. I asked Jeremy for ideas when he called me. When my car was complete with new tires, break service and who knows what else, Jeremy called me with a plan. Ed Jackson drove my car to my door over a 100 miles away followed by another driver who drove them both back to Bloomington. I don't know much about cars and I rely on my dealer and the service to guide me and keep me safe. I'm so grateful that my catastrophy happened near Bloomington. You haven't seen the last of me.
Best Vehicle I have owned.

This car has body damage however the interior is in mint condition, still smells new. Unused floor mats. Always kept floor liners so original carpet is also in excellent condition. I was told by body shop that he could get two doors for about $800.
I bought a used car from Paul Draper at Sam Leman in Morton IL. What a seemless process. He was knowledgeable and so friendly. No pressure at all. The finance guy was great too !! I highly recommend going there to buy a car and ask for Paul!!
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
Bob Lambert and BMW of Bloomington were extremely easy to work with in our purchase of a used BMW X5. Bob answered all our many questions over the phone, emailed many pictures and numerous documents, and most importantly described the vehicle honestly and accurately. The vehicle was prepared for our arrival from 2+ hours away, we test drove it, and then the transaction process was quick, easy and transparent with no "hidden" fees or pressure to purchase optional services or warranties although they were available.
Very nice SUV

Nice looking. Good fuel mileage. Enjoyable to drive. Inexpensive to service. Nice long new car warranty. Quality made vehicle. Handles well. Runs great. Audio system has great sound.
Ran into problems with my purchase. Became unhappy with vehicle. Worked with Keith my salesman and Benji Lehman on getting me into a vehicle I was more comfortable with. Very satisfied with the outcome. Would recommend them in the future.

This car drives smooth for a standard. i usually dont buy manual transmissions so this was a nice surprise. I would recommend test driving the car.
RJ made the car buying process a breeze for us. He was patient, professional and bent over backwards in meeting our demands and was able to locate a new vehicle coming from the factory and delivered right to the dealership with no miles. RJ is the one to ask for and my salesman moving forward.
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.
I was in a lease with a 2015 Kia Optima, and I had gone over my miles. Not good, but I traveled a lot for work. Upon arriving at KIA in Bloomington, I was greeted by TJ, the GM. We discussed how I need to get out of my current lease and into a new one before I get into a bigger hole! TJ explained in detail how the process works and got me into a new lease! He then passed me to Jordan, probably his top salesman! He was very nice and easy to talk too! He knew the ins and outs of all the vehicles and got me into a 2019 Kia Optima! A week later he had me come in and he detailed my new Optima and went over all the new functions in the car! Very happy with my purchase and the overall experience! Thank you O’Brien Kia!!
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
Jason Williams did a very good job finding us exactly what we wanted (a blue Kia Niro plug-in hybrid - not easy to find in the midwest!) for a great price. This lets us drive in EV mode (no gas) for all city driving, plus gets great gas mileage when in hybrid mode on the highway. Plus with the federal tax credit, total price is no different from Niro hybrid without the plug-in feature. Great car, great dealership.
Most reliable car I’ve owned.

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.
Was in a VERY stressful situation. Came across O'brian Kia in Bloomington, Il. I talked to Allison. She was amazing! She helped me through EVERYTHING!! Thanks to her I'm leaving with a new car!
We're even naming our car after her! ❤

Sal was wonderful and was very patient with all of my questions that I had. The finance part of the transaction was very smooth and worked with me to get me the best deal. I will definitely suggest this dealership and Sal to my friends and family who are looking for a new vehicle.
Excellent Overall Value

I love the value that the Kia brand provides. The sorento is my second Kia. It's looks great, drives great and meets my families needs.
Joe Andres is a top notch salesman. I contacted him and told him the make/model van we wanted to see and that we would not have much time as we were traveling to visit family the day before Thanksgiving.
Joe had five mini vans pulled up the the front of the building with the exact options and miles we requested ready to go. He had our car appraised while we test drove the vans and presented us simple numbers all within 45 minutes of arriving. I have bought many new and used cars and his professionalism and timeliness was greatly appreciated. We came back a couple days later and bought a used 2018 van and Joe had all the paperwork ready to go which allowed us to be in and out of the dealership within an hour. I highly suggest working with Joe for your next vehicle purchase !
Best gasoline mileage of any vehicle we have.

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.
Anthony “AJ” Jenkins sold me my new Jeep Cherokee. He was very mindful of what I was needing and the budget that I needed to stay within. He definitely went above and beyond. If you’re looking for a new car, I strongly recommend giving AJ a call!
A Brand of Car I Will Never Own Again
by ToTater from Dallas, TX
December 29, 2018
This car started out good. However, in slightly more than a year, I put two transmissions in it and returned it to the bank when the engine exploded. It was like everytime I turned around, another mechanic wanted money to get it running. I need a reliable car for my job. This was definetly NOT it. Several relatives liked the looks and thought about checking Kia out for themselves. Needless to say...they aren't looking that way anymore. Also, my dealer was totally worthless as a source for some action or help. Won't use them again either! Thanks for nothing but headaches Kia and dealership!
My family has always bought our cars from the Murphy family. They always work hard for you to get the deal done. I would highly recommend Paul Ekstram. He treated me like family. Even brought the car to my home for me to test drive! Excellent experience!
This is my 3'rd Kia Optima an they are great cars.

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.
Very smooth purchase from start to finish. Found what I was looking for online called dealer side and sale person was able to answer all my questions regarding the vehicle I made my appointment for the following day and l drove out of there with my new van. This is my third purchase for here and I am sure it won???t be my last

Comfortable heated seats. Interior upholstery stays clean. Back up screen is so helpful, especially in mall parking lots. Lots of leg room available in rear seats. Plenty of cargo room in rear.
Couldn???t of been happier with the purchase of my 2013 Ford Fusion with Dan! I would highly recommend any & all of my friends and family to purchase their next vehicle with Dan at Mike Murphy of Morton, IL
