Reviews on Destination Kia

I was a first time customer at the service center yesterday because my 2012 Optima had a service light on. I was worried that it wouldn't be covered by warranty. Apparently the engine light was on because I fueled the car with the engine running. Obviously that wouldn't be covered by warranty.  However, they chose not to charge me and they washed my car. I was very happy and will return in the future.

Nobody wants your kid, your puppy or your cars. So stop. Seriously. Just stop. Your voice and face are not made for TV or radio. You are a blight on the Capital District. Would rather listen to Fucillo scream than your horrible ads.

OK, can only start with three stars as our experience is only two months old.  First of all, we needed a new car and after years of sending kids to private school, could finally afford a newer car other than the normal $5K cars we've paid cash for over the years...being somewhat cheap and always looking for a good value, I did a fair amount of research and found that Kia offered the best value for off-lease cars in what we were looking for...we knew how much we wanted to spend, we had the terms and pre-approval through USAA (awesome company!  Thanks Dad for your service!), so it was just a matter of shopping around...

We really wanted a Honda CR-V, but given what we wanted to spend comfortably, that would have meant a pre-owed from a dealer that was 4 years old with 40 - 60K miles...We looked at several at several places, but never found anything we wanted to buy.

Labor Day, we drove around just looking at dealers...we pulled into the Big "F" Kia franchise which struck us as a meat market, music blasting, we lasted five minutes, the obnoxious commercials alone have turned us off to that string of dealerships, so we got back in the car and headed down Central Ave.  One of my coworkers had recommended Destination Kia, so we headed there just to poke around.

We were met by a hostess whose job is to connect us to a sales guy - we got Anthony.  We really didn't need to buy a car that day, we were just poking around.  He was very good, no pressure, just walking around with us, we came across a loaded Sportage with 14.5K miles, 2013, off-lease, very clean, took a little drive, again, not really intending to commit, we liked the car, after we got back, we went through the car thoroughly, very clean.  

As we talked, Anthony threw out the obligatory, "What do I have to do to get you to sign the papers?", I laughed, I knew what it was worth being off lease, so I threw out my number, we did haggle a little, but I ended up within $750 of my number.  When I called USAA to go through the numbers, they punched in the VIN and said their book value for the car was $2K over what I paid...granted, it's off-lease, so they've already made money on the car, but I'm in business, they need to make money, I get it, it's a matter that we walked away feeling pretty good, felt like we were treated very well, got a car we liked for a good price.

So far, we love the Sportage. and edmunds give it good reviews - it's not a CR-V, but for the price, we got a fully loaded low mileage car.  It handles great, just very nice, some things like the back-up camera are a little cheesy, but the vehicle as a whole just feels very solid.

Since then, Anthony has reached out several times to touch base with us, make sure everything is OK, car dealers are car dealers, but we were really comfortable with Destination mostly due to the fact we got Anthony as our sales guy and they made things very easy...knowing what we wanted to spend and having the financing before we walked in probably made it easier...

Another review for another day - USAA rocks.  Yes, it's not open for everyone, but Anthony said it was the easiest transaction he's ever seen - they basically e-mailed their finance group a check and the money was in their account within 18 hours.

I'd recommend Destination Kia and Anthony specifically as he was very relaxed and genuine.

This was the best car buying/leasing experience ever - we got exactly the car we wanted with all the bells and whistles for exactly what we wanted to pay - there was no gimmicks no hassles and none of the bullcrap they usually throw at you - would recommend them to anyone looking to lease or buy a new car.
