About Metro Kia

In 1978, Michael Grieco Sr. ventured into the automotive industry when he opened his first dealership. He then acquired Metro Honda in 1995. As the years passed and with the acquisitions of more franchises, Metro Motor Group was formed to handle the company's growing automotive business. In the years following the Honda franchise acquisition, Michael Grieco, Sr. began transferring the reins and leadership role of the day-to-day operations to his son, Michael Grieco Jr. It was at Metro Honda that Michael Grieco Jr. learned the nuances of running a successful business. Working his way up from a salesman to currently holding an executive position, Michael Grieco Jr. is now one of the youngest automotive CEO's in the country. With his influence, the Metro brand has a solid reputation for excellence and is known for their outstanding customer service. Over the years, Metro Motor Group has added three Kia and two Mazda franchises as well as Ford, Nissan, Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge-Ram, Fiat, Volkswagen, Land Rover and Jaguar franchises. And for customers looking for a one-of-a-kind vehicle, Metro Motor Group offers Metro Exotics, a store dedicated to the sale of high-end vehicles.

Since founding Metro Motor Group, Michael Grieco Sr.'s primary focus is running his commercial real estate and development company. He also oversees Metro Collision Center, Rhode Island's only "green," eco-friendly collision center in the state.

"Horrible business "

I found this car online and made an appointment to come see it the next day. They called me in the morning to CONFIRM my appointment in a few hours. I drove an hour to get there and they tell me someone put a deposit on the car last night so it was no longer available. Seriously? Why wouldn't they tell me that when they called me in the morning

"waste of time"

went three times to test drive cars the first time I was ignored for a half hour and left the next time I got to test drive a car that was clearly not even gone through brakes were grinding among other problems, also while trying to work out a deal, I was told the best price they could give me was 2200 over the online price and I offered over the minimum down payment. and the final time they wanted to put me into every car on the lot but what i wanted. waste of time.

"LACKS INTEGRITY - Horrible in every day"

BEWARE!!! As a military professional, integrity is central to everything. Metro Kia not just lacks integrity but in addition to their deceit their attitude is just as disgusting. Please just beware that any "deals" they offer are just gimmicks and in the end the cost is more than without the deal. They lie at every stage... play ignorant... and then when you tactfully call them out on their inaccurate statements (even on facts of their own fleet) they react abrasively. Completely HORRIBLE on every level. The Kia is great car but please go somewhere else. This place needs an overhaul from management through every staff member. Its sad these people can look themselves in the mirror and act like that to customers. Not an honest company!

"My new Car"

I just purchased a brand new 2014 Soul, did I get a great price "no" But I have less than prefect credit and a ton of debt. I got great service from my saleman and great service from everyone I dealt with. Only compliant I have is that their waiting area is not the best but hey I did not go there to hang out I went to buy a car and left with a new one.
