Real Red Beauty is Now ALL MINE
November 6, 2018
My last KIA was “ok” not the best car ever, not much to get excited about Except: the incredible mileage stats over my previous Mercedes SUV!! By the time I retired the VERY faithful and durable-through feet of snow in VT, Water at beaches & too many highways to count! I wanted my luxury back, without the Mercedes $$$ investment. We went to see my old standard: Honda, nothing jumped into my heart and their pricing was too pricey for not much new to see, and that was shocking. Next door was KIA, so we walked over and took a look. There was this gorgeous red car...my FAVORITE EVER red... and it was a nice looking, sleekish but not FrouFrou slick.... I drove it. Not bad. It had some bells and whistles new to me: a backup camera made for someone living at the beach where backing up, parking, can be a real issue safetywise (thinks little kids running everywhere everywhen) We drove a couple other cars but the Sportage EX was the winner: 1.Its solid, 2.the Big Windshield is great. The camera is so helpful its hard to explain. Nice size rearview mirror that does not “bob up & down” is another “cannot believe I lived without for so long.” Enough about the car! The dealer was careful to help me balance my needs vs the bells, whistles, add ons.. and I drove home in much more than I anticipated we could afford. Appreciation across the board is due. After sale, they are as attentive to making sure All they promised is done or scheduled, can they do more? So really solid in followup earns my gratitude and trust going forward. I look forward to driving actually ON the beach next Summer, if I can afford the right tires!
