My Review Of Selbyville Holly Kia:
Do NOT go here unless you are 100% sure that you want to leave with a vehicle that night, no matter the prices.
If I could use a rating of 0 stars, I would. A few months back, we had inquired online to Selbyville Holly Kia because we live about 45 minutes from the dealership and can't afford to come in on a whim. My husband and I have hectic schedules and rarely have off together; we wanted to make sure it was worth our while to come in. The internet manager could not give us sufficient information and basically, we felt like he did not have time for us. I tried contacting him via email, but he kept insisting we call. However, when I did call, he sounded irritated after about the 3rd question I asked. I had two phone conversations with him; one lasted about 5 minutes, the other lasted about 2 minutes. We decided against it at the time.
We went in to the dealership tonight after again trying to get an online quote, which I've come to find out is basically non-existent. They will not give you a price online. We went in and were assigned to a sales person. This was the first place we went and we told the salesman that are looking for low monthly prices but were unsure as to what exactly we wanted. We talk with him about where approximately we need the monthly payments to be. Again, this was the first place we looked into and did not know what to expect. We weren't looking for something new, but need something reliable as we drive 2 hrs round trip to work each day.
We sat around for 3-4 hours waiting for the bank to call us. The salesman hardly paid any attention to us while at his desk; the salesman next to us started engaging us in conversation and finally our salesman joined in. Our salesman's phone continued to ring while we were sitting there; I'm also in sales but my phone is ALWAYS on silent.
After sitting there for 3-4hrs, we are approved. They offer us 1 vehicle (about 5-6 yrs old) with multiple dings and scratches down to the metal. It rides decent, but after inspecting it a little, we realize the transmission may be an issue. Then, we are told it's about $50/month over what we had wanted as our absolute max payment. For a 6 yr old car. With multiple dings and scratches. And a possible "iffy" transmission. Needless to say, we are uncomfortable with the deal and basically wanted to "sleep" on it. All of a sudden, the knock $20 off the monthly sales. We are still uncomfortable as this is the 1st place we checked out and want to wait until tomorrow. The salesman became nasty at that point and everything he said was with a nasty attitude. It was at that point he lost our business. My husband and I are both in sales; we never treat our customers this way and don't expect it from other sales people, car salesman or not. He said snidely that he wasn't even making anything on the deal and how everyone in the back office worked really hard and put in alot of time for our deal...um, I'm sorry, but it was during regular hours and isn't that what they are getting paid for? He then proceeded to say, nastily, that we "weren't serious" (basically calling us liars) and we can just keep renting vehicles (we had to the last couple of days), essentially that it's our funeral and to come get our drinks that we left on his table. (Side note, both our vehicles broke down in the span of a month and we have to buy a vehicle by Monday - we have to, that's how serious we are about purchasing a vehicle).
So now, instead of sleeping on it and probably coming back tomorrow or Saturday, guess who will NEVER be shopping at a Holly Kia, EVER again? Me. Because no way in hell am I giving that guy my business.
And car salesmen wonder where the stereotypes from?
