A luxury experience at a bargain price.
July 3, 2017
Was replacing a lemon'ed Volvo XC90 and hoping to significantly reduce my humongous payment on that vehicle, I took the advice of a good friend (and also my dad, and also several online reviewers) I decided to look at Kia Sorento as a replacement.
For $10-15,000 less than my Volvo, I found I could get more standard features. I had some concerns the car would feel less well-built, or less luxurious than my Volvo, but the reviews were so good I talked myself into checking it out. I'm so glad I did, because I was wrong.
Today's Kia is a world away from the Kia of 20 years ago, and the car feels well built and thoughtful like an Acura or a high-end Toyota. To find a better interior, you have to spend serious money - Audi Q5, Lexus RX350 kind of money -- another $10k at least.
I worked with Joseph Miller after starting my inquiry online, and couldn't be more impressed. I've managed salespeople my whole career, and I'd be proud to have Joe on my team, and I'm sure CarPros feels the same way.
Joe shared with me Kia's recent repeat #1 win of JD Power's initial quality survey, and also that Kia had hired engineers and designers from Audi and Cadillac over the last decade, bringing true luxury-car cred to the brand.
After running the numbers on the top-of-the-line trim and being just a few dollars over my goal budget, I was preparing to just bite the bullet when Joe mysteriously asked me to wait a moment and disappeared. He found another car for me that was similarly equipped (minus a few non-essential items) in a color/interior/wheel combination I actually liked BETTER --- and fit well within my "goal budget."
So, Joe actually sold me a less-expensive vehicle because he knew it was a better fit for me, instead of pushing me toward accepting a higher payment for things I didn't need or want. That's true professionalism.
After coming from a highly-awarded legacy luxury brand like Volvo, I was worried I wouldn't receive the same kind of customer service to which I'd become accustomed. I was very wrong - CarPros Kia Renton and Joe Miller operate in a class above what you may expect.
I encourage you to give Kia a try-- and give CarPros Kia Renton and Joe your business.
