Alright, our story begins when I came in to look at a new Kia Stinger, get an idea for prices/rebates/whether or not I liked the car. I wanted a base model, they didn't have any, so I drove a GT, it had better rebates on it and all that, so why not? Maybe I'll like it. Short test drive later, I like the car, we starting talking numbers, and the sales guy puts on a laughable act, every time the manager drops the price, he's saying things like "Oh man, I've never seen him drop it like that before!" or "I would do that right now!" All the while, the manager is bragging about having killed people while in the military.... I appreciate his service to our country, but not the overly-pushy nature of "If I do this, you're gonna sign the paperwork, right?" We can't come to an agreement on the GT, I ask if they have a 2018 base at another location, sure enough, they do, we get close to a deal, but I walk away to think about it. Minor haggling, a little annoying, but no harm, no foul so far.
Then comes the call from the general manager to talk prices on the base model further. We talk about increasing the amount on my trade, and him coming down a bit, to the point we're not far off, decide we can always talk it over in person on Monday, when I'll be in the area, made an appointment. I got there, and waited over an hour for them to approach me, tell me that they sold the car about 6 hours before I arrived. They ONCE AGAIN, start directing me towards a GT, a different one than I drove the first time I was in, I drove a red car, now they're showing me a black car with red seats (Which, granted, I liked better) BUT insisted that it was definitely the same car I drove, that I MUST have remembered wrong, and oh yeah, the sticker price on that one was over $3000 cheaper, BUT they started at the price of the more expensive car, and acted shocked that I made a lower offer on a cheaper car, telling me that it "Wasn't worth their time to make a counteroffer". Oh, and the extra money I was promised by the gm on my trade? I was told "Oh, we have no record of that, he wouldn't have made an offer like that" I was treated like a liar and an ATM, not a customer they wanted to do real business with. These guys are SCUM, avoid at ALL COSTS.
