I avoided buying a new car for over a year because I DREADED the whole process. Not having been in a dealership in over 10 years, I kept envisioning the memes of the dodgy car dealer that flood the internet, and I wanted no part of it.
Imagine my delight when I arrived at Kia of Stamford to test drive a new Seltos and was welcomed by Steven Kokkinidis, my Sales Consultant. Steven is the antithesis of the shady salesman with whom we are all unhappily familiar. No tricks, no high-pressure tactics, no shell games, no smoke and mirrors; just a terrific personality (he’s an animal lover, so that warmed my heart) and full disclosure. By the time I signed on the dotted line, I wanted to adopt him. Dave Marino, General Sales Manager, was equally delightful.
What I feared would be an ordeal turned out to be a wonderful experience due to Steven and Dave. The best part is I have a brand-new Kia Seltos that I not only love, but also am confident will keep me a safe, happy driver for years to come.
Thank you, Steven and Dave!
