5 stars for Bradley - stevelewis
When making a major purchase you want the best deal. Bradley Van Sickle and the team at Summit Place Kia, Auburn Hills worked diligently with me and negotiated a deal that I could feel comfortable with. An intangible to building a successful alliances is recognizing that your customer is important.
Bradley VanSickle values his customers and will work you.
When purchasing a new vehicle from Summit Place Kia I highly recommend that you speak with "the Pickle", Mr. Bradley Van Sickle. He's professional, insightful and most importantly he understands his product line and his customer.
Excellent Service and Scott Amon was great! - Janet R
In the last 2 years, my family has purchased 5 vehicles from Scott Amon. I felt so comfortable with him that my 2 adult sons wen there on their own and bought a vehicle, Scott even had them call me to be sure that I was alright with it. I would highly recommend Scott ! Also, I will never buy anything other than a Kia in the future! Thanks Scott!!
Always feel like a member of the family. - iboptimized
Bought my car in 2012 from this dealership and even though I live out of state (4.5-5 hours away), I will SAVE my service calls and oil changes for Serra rather than the 2 dealerships in my own town. I've dealt with my 2 local ones before when I had no choice but to have it serviced for an emergency locally. But the lame service I received at both places makes me want to "save" my mechanic work & drive my car 4.5-5 hours NORTH to Serra to get the respect & knowledge they give me as a customer (from Teresa my advisor) and the excellent service I receive for service from the mechanics (Timothy in particular). Paul (the service manager) has always been great too whenever I've dealt with him.
I'm in and out in a timely manner, the pricing is satisfactory and as I mentioned, the way they treat me is like a member of the family. I highly recommend the service center at Serra Kia in Washington.
Terrible customer “service” and extremely rude - Kbeukema16
I had found a Subaru Outback on cargurus for a great price. We were called by the dealership on Saturday afternoon to set up an appointment with Josh for Thursday to buy the car. We would be driving across the state (two hour + drive) to come see the vehicle, a drive that we were assured would be made “worth our while.” We had numerous confirmation texts and phone calls to remind us of our appointment to see this specific outback.
We headed out Thursday morning, after I had worked all night, and drove through a snow storm to make our appointment. We arrived at the dealership and asked for Josh, as he had told us to do so. We were immediately corrected and told that Josh only makes the appointments and does not meet with customers. So we told them we had an appointment to see this specific 2017 outback and the salesman responded that the vehicle was not there. After driving two hours through a snow storm for a set appointment, my father stated, “the car better be here, or we have a problem.” The salesman immediately became defensive and stated “you and I don’t have a problem.” He then said he’d look for the vehicle and he called over to the used car sales manager, Chris Baroli. We were directed to a building two doors down to speak with Chris. Chris informed that the vehicle had sold the night before. When we expressed our frustrations at the lack of communication, Chris responded that there was nothing he could do for us but sell us a different car. Not feeling like our extreme inconvenience had been addressed, we asked to speak with the GM. The GM was in a meeting at the time, so we said we would wait to speak with him. We headed back to the first building to wait when the sales manager followed us back over to again, try to sell us a different car (although I was very picky when picking out the initial Subaru and wanted wanted a specific combo at the right price point.) The GM never came out to see us, even when his meeting ended. We had yet to receive a single apology for the disappointment and inconvenience.
It was not until we called the owner of the dealership that we received an apology. George was very apologetic and kind and worked to try to remedy the situation. Unfortunately he did not have the car that I wanted in stock for the price point that I needed.
Unless you have the pleasure of working directly with George, do not go to this dealership. The salesmen were rude sleezeballs. Drive the 8 miles to LaFontaine Subaru— they were much much kinder and offered very fair prices.
Bought Kia Sorento - Mark Hartman
The LaFontaine family of dealerships is an amazing automotive complex. They house Kia, Honda, Toyota and Hyundai in one block on Telegraph in Dearborn. This was the 3rd dealership I visited in my quest for a good quality, medium size SUV. The previous two were disappointing. I had already done two weeks of research in Consumers Report, Edmunds, and US News Automotive. So I was thrilled to see all three of my final choices were sold in one place. Now I just needed to find a salesperson who would bear with me as I compared them all. I hit the jackpot when I quickly came across Christina Baker. She is fantastic! She is knowledgeable, personable and low key; so the experience was enjoyable. She was very patient and accommodating. She answered my many questions and set me up with test drives in all my choices. Over the next few days she sent emails with well researched comparisons of the cars. We also texted to quickly clarify questions. Because of her help I was able to nail down a final choice. They located it about 200 miles away and had it by the next day. Between her and the rest of the LaFontaine team, I feel I reached a fair price for my vehicle. The night I picked it up, one of the office people told me Christina had sold five cars that day. Yet, she still made plenty of time for my wife and I to get familiar with our new purchase. You can't go wrong with this dealership and if you get Christina Baker as your salesperson, that's an added bonus.
Maintenance/Service Visit - joanna
The people in the Kia Service area are friendly, courteous.
It is always stressful to buy a car and take it in for service,, you never know if you are receiving an honest/fair deal and service.
I think I did when I bought the car from Jeffrey Kia and I think the maintenance/service is very good.
Jonathan Noble gave me a better price than quoted on the website for this service visit. Thank you.
Wonderful service! - Ryanakridge
This is my second time coming for an oil change. The people there are extremely friendly. $36 and a car wash is included! Most places it's way more for just the oil change. They also have a nice waiting area with yummy popcorn, a charging station and a coffee/espresso machine!
