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.

I definitely had a fantastic car buying experience at Performance Kia Thanks to Raven! He is very professional, efficient and was great at keeping me informed of timing and process throughout my purchase. For being my first time buying a car and not having the best credit I thought I was going to run into a lot of issues but Raven was excellent as my salesperson and was able to find the perfect car and the most important thing making the purchase stress free for me!! I had shop around and most dealer are really pushy which I find very annoying this definitely didn't happened here. Raven was really friendly and made me feel very secure about my purchase I highly recommend this dealership :)

This is the 2nd time we have purchased a car from Performance Kia. The first time in 2015, Clifton helped me almost 100% over the phone as I live about 3 hours away. When everything was done, drove to the dealer and was in and out in about an hour. The second time, was the 7th of Sept 2019 we spoke to Clifton again and also to David they helped find a better interest rate than I had on my own and we purchased a new 2020 Soul that was the one we really wanted! In my all my years of buying cars, I really believe that Performance Kia is the best dealer for actually listening to the customer and truly helping the customer. I have tried buying locally, but my local dealers are rude, pushy and do not want to negotiate. I recommend anyone in the market for a vehicle to speak to Clifton at Performance Kia!

I'll be honest: this would have been 4 stars, but I found out that the person in the finance department who would have dragged down this score no longer works at this location. Instead there is a different man in finance and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. My household bought two Kias from this location in the last calendar year. When I bought mine in November 2018 Izzy Rios was my salesman and it didn't take much deliberation for us to decide we wanted to go back to him when circumstances demanded the purchase of another car this summer of 2019. No one at Kia (with the exception of the finance guy who no longer works there) ever made me feel pressured or stressed out or guilty for not wanting add-ons. We were given time to think, talk without someone breathing down our necks, etc. I recognize that over the years there will be good employees and not so good employees at any establishment: that's just life. My recent experiences, however, have all been very positive, and I hope their current team stays intact for many years to come.
