mistakes corrected. My experience is with their service department- not sales. There’s a laundry list of problems with my recent visit. First, I filled out my appointment information online and input all the services I needed which included Inspection, Oil Change, Key Fob Battery Change, Paint Pen, and to check on a speaker that was rattling in the back of my vehicle. When I showed up, they had no record of my appointment, so all that time I spent filling out the details and setting a scheduled time was wasted, and I was no more than a walk-in customer. I ran through all of the reasons for my visit and then informed my service expert that I needed a ride because I was going to go back to work while they worked on my car. I waited in their wait area for over 15 minutes and was never acknowledged. Because I had to go through all the details of the appointment, I was well into missing about an hour of work at this point. Not to mention that I observed no service professionals in the shop wearing facemasks during the Covid pandemic. Not here to argue about mask efficacy of wearing a mask- that’s just a fact for anyone who cares and some may not. I finally gave up and told them I would call a rideshare because I had to get back to work. So over $30 dollars later when I arrived back after repairs and service had been completed, I was given my keys and walked out to my vehicle. I read through the paperwork and in order to address my speaker rattling they provided the following service note: “Bass on stereo was turned up high. Turned Bass down to see if that helps”. So instead of fixing or addressing the issue with me, they took it upon themselves to mess with my stereo settings and turn the bass down. That was their answer to the problem. I walked back in and was told to wait while they checked out 3 other customers before finally addressing my concern that the problem was not fixed or addressed. Finally, they got a manager to talk to me and we went out to my car, worked with the stereo and eventually landed on the answer being that: ‘my music has too much “deep bass” and so there’s nothing that would stop the rattling’. I was told it was going to rattle no matter what. So I guess this is a Kia design flaw? I was frustrated with this answer but moved on because I needed to get back to work. The next day, my phone began ringing and they informed me that they forgot to charge me and I would need to come back down to make payment. I went back down to the dealership at the next convenience, paid my bill and picked up my paint pen. I just got back home and was preparing to use it when I noticed the paint is the wrong color. So the saga continues. The whole experience has been terrible. I will not return and will, in future, either take my car to a auto shop for maintenance or drive 2 hours north to Pete’s Car Smart Kia where the facility is newer, better maintained, and the staff are much more efficient.
