Amazing!

May 31, 2017

AMAZING!! Unlike any car dealership I have EVER been to! I dreaded it. Three years ago I gave up on the dealerships and paid cash for a car. It was time to get something newer and more reliable. I had been to three different brand dealerships from Charlotte to Fort Mill and I was ready to give up. So tired of being held captive and not seeing the price online OR the price I was told hours and hours before. I went there prepared to be tough, no games. I didn't need to though! They were wonderful! The cars were the price shown online, and I was in a car for a test drive in minutes! Every SINGLE person we came in contact with went out of their way to greet us, offer us something, etc. NOT just the sales person working with us (who was also very nice). They have hired a great group of people that are genuinely friendly and personable to everyone they come in contact with. Talk about hospitality and customer service - A+! They really care about the total customer experience and it shows. Some of the great people I came in contact with that you might want to look for: Brandon Jolly, Michael Reed, Alex Matzke, Bernard Graham (who I didn't talk to much but he always had a smile!), Eric Perryman in finance. If you're looking for a car - Go here. If you're tired of the games and being held hostage- Go here now! You will NOT disappointed!

80Miles

February 1, 2017

When my husband left yesterday morning to drive 80 miles one way to the Union County Kia, never did he expect to come home with a new 2017 Sorrento. Victor Caputo was professional, courteous, knowledgeable in every way. Getting my husband to feel like he's not being talked down to, or doesn't know how "the deal" runs isn't easy, but he knew that Victor wasn't running the typical scam. When a price was agreed upon discussing financing with Eric again was pleasant as he is very knowledgeable in his area of finance and again professional and courteous. We don't live close to Union County Kia but if we did we would highly recommend seeing Victor and Eric. Thank you to both of you!!

AMAZING Team

July 10, 2017

I visited this dealership on 7/7/17. Shout out to an AWESOME and truly AMAZING team of sales personnel!! Brandon Jolly and Everett Pettaway took a tag-team approach to get me into a new vehicle. My situation was not a good one (probably one of the worst), but these guys turned lemons into lemonade! I'd like to also give kudos to Michael Reed who worked those numbers like the pro that he is. If you need a vehicle, definitely get in touch with these fellas. Tell them Shalee sent you! :-)

Drove from Lynchburg

May 16, 2017

Yesterday my mom and I drove from Lynchburg, VA to buy a BMW convertible. Niles was so helpful and really took his time to help my mom make sure this is what she really wanted. He made sure all the paperwork was done and tried to make it go as quickly as possible. Eric helped us with financing and talked to my mom about owning a BMW and everything that comes with it. He was so nice and helpful. They also got her a better deal and had Niles come and meet us to sign the othe paperwork for a better deal. Thank you Eric for last night at dinner as well. Niles and Eric are the best!

I absolutely despise the old school

July 13, 2017

I absolutely despise the old school, 'tooth-pick in the mouth', coin-flipping type of sleazy salesperson that we've all had to deal with, and I'm glad to say this was not my experience. Chris and the staff at UCK were delightful, helpful and DIDN'T play games. He asked me what I was looking for, I told him what research I had done and he provided his experience with what I was searching for to make sure I had ALL of the correct information to make an informed purchase. I'll recommend him to anybody until I'm blue in the face.

One of a Kind

June 19, 2017

Victor cuputo is one of a kind. Really great guy has help almost my whole family choose there car. Always doing a great job with me and I'm not an easy going person. Go get you a car from him he is really excellent. Trust me it really does make the difference on how easy it is to buy a car when you talk to the right guy. So I went in and talk to another sales man they started beating around the bush so I left and came back 2 days later and there's Victor didn't rush me let me ask the questions that were best for my family and answered them with great information. Thanks so much victor will be back for my next car !!!

"Ask for Victor, we will know how to guide you."

July 3, 2017

My wife and I recently got a vehicle from Union County KIA. We were received by Victor Caputo and our experience was a very nice one. We took a lot of time to make our decision (like 4 hours or so) and Mr. Victor was patient, helpful and respectful all time long, he even gave us many good tips about the vehicle we were about to buy and he offered us a very good deal. If you go to this dealer, make sure to ask for Victor Caputo, he for sure will know how to treat you and guide you through the whole process

""Tez" the Great""

July 1, 2017

"Tez" by far is the best salesman on this planet! He truly relates to each customer and creates an experience like no other! I remember when he sold Hondas and couldn't believe how knowledgeable he was of his product. I definitely recommend "Tez" for any and all car-buying needs!

Great Experience with Doug and Union County Kia!"

July 4, 2017

"Great Experience with Doug and Union County Kia!" - MikeH I purchased a used Kia Sorento on 7/3/17 from Union County Kia. I saw the car online, contacted the dealership and confirmed it was still available. I drove to Monroe from Boone. I had talked with sales associate Doug Benson on the phone and met him on the lot. I had a very positive sale experience.

Blessed

June 14, 2017

We were blessed to work with John Cutter, who answered all our questions and helped us find a car that matches our needs, with some nice extras as well, at a reasonable price. He and the office staff stayed late to complete our purchase so we could drive away in our new car. The staff was great, especially John!

Alex is the Best!

July 13, 2017

Alex is the best! We showed up right at closing time, and he still helped us find the perfect car! He showed us how to use everything and made sure we were happy before we left! We went in feeling defeated after totaling our last car, and walked out with a beautiful new Niro! Thanks Alex!

I would give 6 Stars

July 11, 2017

I would give 6 Stars but 5 is the limit!
