After years of woe with my 2003 Kia Sedonna, I finally decided to suck it up and take the trek from North Stamford to Selleck street to have the dealership take a look at my car. I'd brought it to almost every auto shop and mechanic within a 20 mile radius and eventually approached the Kia auto shop as a last resort.
Here's the thing: auto shops are the worst, what with their long lines, inconsistent quality, and unenthusiastic employees. This has been my experience in the past at least. Kia of Stamford isn't an auto shop; it's a collection of warm, energetic and competent employees striving to give their costumer's the absolute best value for any budget. John, (hi John!) fixed my car after discovering that everything I'd been told by other auto shops had been bull. He gave me an extremely affordable price, communicated while the car was in his care, and did such a great job with the actual work, I got 30,000 miles more off of that piece of garbage car! John is the best. I can't say that enough; as the face of Kia, it's pretty easy to understand why the parking lot is always full. John is the man. Get your car fixed by him right now; even if there's nothing wrong with it, go now!
John knows me by first and last name and once my Sedonna died, he knew exactly what kind of a car would fit not only my budget, but my personality and taste. The awesome Ernesto helped me pick a Kia Soul out of the lot and figured everything out so I'd be able to take it home in the same day. Ernesto is funny, warm, and a fantastic guy to have on your side. Thank you to everyone who made this experience so smooth, easy, and fun. Thanks to John and Ernesto and Jay the finance expert and to Tommy for transfering my plates and to the pretty woman who sits in front of Ernesto and graduated from Westconn and to everyone else at the dealership that came up and said hi, asked how my day was going, or congratulated me on my new car. Making a purchase should be fun, and these guys at Kia know exactly what they're doing. Kia is comprised of only the friendliest, most capable and awesome workers; they put you first, not as a costumer, but as a human. I had an amazing experience at Kia and I recommend everyone dump their car into the ocean and go purchase a new one at Kia right now.
Thanks everyone! (And Ernesto; go watch the middle part of Breaking Bad, darn you!)
