Our family began a wonderful relationship with Joe Pulliam and his fine staff in 2001. Since that time we have purchased 6 vehicles, some new, some used. We have always been highly satisfied with maintenance and/or repair process, and the great care of the staff. When we decided a car purchase needed to be made
12-30-16, we went to see Joe Pulliam. If Joe had been on vacation, then the purchase would have waited! That is how much we trust and appreciate Joe and his staff and continue to refer friends.

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.
Well I had the timing belt change and has to take it back and they said it jump timing well they didn't put the alt and air condition belt on right it . This last time I got it back well it was knocking and hard to start and they screw the belt again . .i had to replace it because they didnt have the belt all the way on the.groves . I won't take it back to them no more .

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.
Excellence service with very little wait time after scheduling an appointment.
Kia should be the new Mercedes

It performs phenomenal drive like u are hovering on clouds picks up quick and inside or lord it’s like I’m driving something foriegn and the pano moon roof oh it’s to die for heated steering wheel I just wish it had remote start that would be the real cherry on top
I called and placed an order for a spare tire kit for my vehicle on my lunch hour. I was told that the tire would have to be mounted, so I said that I would pick it up the next day after I got off work at 5:00. I tried to emphasize the desire to have the tire already mounted and be ready for installation upon arrival. The latter did not happen. The tire didn’t get mounted until I arrived, resulting in a wait longer then I expected.
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!
Crain KIA has been our only dealer since in Fort Smith. They will remain our only dealer. Understand our needs. Great people to buy from.
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.
the employees were friendly and personable - they were knowledgeable and efficient - I really appreciated that I was not given a "hard sell" - I love our new car!
A Brand of Car I Will Never Own Again
by ToTater from Dallas, TX

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!
I purchased a car from Heath. Overall, It was a great experience. My one critique of Crain Kia would be, respect the customer’s limits. My salesman was great, but they sent some guy named Chris at one point to try to talk me into a payment that was more than $100/month above my very frequently stated budget. He was pushy and tried his very best to make me feel stupid. Avoid him at all costs. Heath, my actual salesman, on the other hand was excellent. He was friendly, helpful, and gave you time and space to make decisions without feeling rushed or prodded. Loved working with him.

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.
Michael Schlemn was very professional, knowledgeable and polite about our vehicle purchase. Also Dees was very helpful. This our third Nissan vehicle, showroom floor was very clean Just a great experience all around

Perfect small family car
by Hannah.beth from Largo, fl

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.
A big thank you Jordan for expediting getting a man out and away from the dealership to install a new battery in my wife's car, and to Brandon Hobbs for his expedience and courtesy in the installation of the battery. My wife is back on the road safe and sound, Thanks too the good People from the person who answered the phone to the Service Department at Crain Kia of Ft. Smith, AR.
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.
My salesman, Albert, was great! He was not a pressure salesman and worked hard to make a deal I could live with. The next day I dropped off the extra keys for my trade and was told they found a bank with a lower rate so they redid the paper work for me!

This car has a bad problem when you step on the gas pedal the car feels like it stalls it like the gas is not getting to the engine, I had it at the dealership 3 times already they say nothing is wrong with it. I have almost been hit a lot of times.
We were dreading shopping for a vehicle, but we were pleasantly surprised with Riverside! We went in looking for a used SUV and ended up buying 2 new Fords!
I like my Sorento
