While shopping with my mother for her new car, we decided to try performance Kia in Everett. I'm glad we did, because they employ a particular gentleman there who assisted us on our journey and made the experience so much easier than expected. Anthony, of performance Kia is knowledgeable, patient, understanding and doesn't oversell. He walked my mom through the steps, listened to her needs and made sure that all parts of the process were laid out for her to not be overwhelmed by. Had it not been for Tony, we probably would not have left with a car that evening, so great job Anthony! You shine great light on your location!

I've leased with Kia for sometime now. Recently, my lease was up and I went to Performance Kia. Anthony was my car salesman and in every way possible, took the stress out of my car leasing experience. Anthony was professional, courteous, and very attentive to my situation. He worked very hard to get me into the car i wanted while meeting my budget needs. Anthony went above and beyond for me and i am a customer for life.

Israel and Quincy provided excellent service every step of the way. This was my first time buying from a dealership, and they could not have made the process any easier, and you could not have asked for friendlier service. Thanks so much to the both of you for helping me transition to the Kia family!

I highly recommend anyone who is looking to get a KIA Niro EV to visit this place. Scheduled an appointment online and went for a test drive. The staff were courteous to me the entire time and when I ask for a quote, they gave me exactly what they listed on their website with the dealer discount they had at that point in time. They were also very transparent and goes thru every line item in detail. Try other dealers, you will be surprised how conveniently they will forget about the discount listed on their website even though you schedule an appointment from their website. You have to "remind" them and good luck with stress free buying experience.

They were good with follow up - no issues - they had the car I wanted. But didn't want to talk or negotiate - as the Tellride SX is in high demand and KIa placed an price addendum on the MSRP and increased it 5-6k.

I, unfortunately, cannot remove or edit the review I left before but I will leave another one. Since my issue with the dealership, they made it right and got me back down to my originally quoted price. I guess it pays to call someone out when you have been wronged. Anyways, it shows alot that they cared enough to fix the mistake made within. Thanks Shane!

Just completed a test drive with Joe Miller. He was knowledgeable and very low pressure; not once did he try to sell us. He understood that we were at the start of the car buying process and was very accommodating, answering all of our questions. It was a very pleasant experience on a rainy PNW day.

We went in to discuss the end of my Kia Soul (which I LOVE) lease and had the pleasure of working with Joe the Car Pro. He was really great, not pushy and took his time to go through our options about the lease ending. I'm excited to go back at the actual end of lease and work with him on our next vehicle!

Service department: I'm gonna give them another shot, but RIDICULOUSLY mediocre customer service. I went in for an oil change and for them to find out why there is a rattle upon acceleration.... I leave beyond pissed. I got a list of regular maintenance as well as random stuff. Nothing about the rattle. Apparently they ASE train their cashiers. When I mentioned the ONE thing I wanted besides the oil change wasn't done, she tells me it's cuz I was probably low on oil. Also, FYI, good customer service would of stayed that as the above but add on something like: "but if you hear the rattle again, please bring it back." Feel free to check out the pic I enclosed of my free wash that I regret getting. SO many missed spots. Why is the bare minimum considered acceptable now?? Bare minimum wash, bare minimum customer service. (Also, not a money thing. I was willing to spend money. I'm actually writing this while I'm in a pre-op waiting on the vet for my dog.) I also got a "fun story" about their SALES department, but as it was my dad's experience, not mine, I'm not going to post. But if you wanna hear the games they play, message me.
