The other reviewer is correct. Orlando Kia does prey on the uninformed.
Orlando Kia has been advertising in their TV commercials $5000 on any trade. I submitted an estimate request on their site to inquire about a specific Kia vehicle. Next thing I knew, I was getting inundated by emails from three or four different Kia salesman from their various branch dealerships -- all owned/part of "Orlando Kia," of course. Not only that, but the lowest sales price they came up with on the car I wanted was...gee whiz, I wonder why ... $4000 MORE than the price for the SAME car at another dealership that had nothing to to with Orlando Kia, while the trade-in estimate Orlando Kia gave me was $1000 LESS than ANY other dealer's offer.
Bottom line: Don't fall for Orlando Kia's slick scams. They're charging outrageous prices to cover the trade-in scheme. Orlando Kia is just trying to get you into their dealership, and using trickery to make you think you're getting a good deal, while ripping you off. Do your homework, inquire at other dealerships all over the state (not just branches of the same dealership). Take your time and get informed.
Really, think about it: TV commercials are NOT cheap. Orlando Kia runs many of them daily, 365 days a year. How do you think they can afford to saturate every station with that much advertising? It's coming right out of naive car buyers' pockets.
I have to ask, does Orlando Kia prey on the uninformed? Start questioning the break out of the numbers on a quote that they give you. As an example, look at the doc fee and ask what it pays for? The answer I got was that they have to pay this money to the state or they lose their license. I was told that it covers things like tire disposal, battery disposal, etc. So, ift they charge me that to dispose of tires or batteries that haven't been changed out, then why is there a fee? Better yet, if I pay these fees without changing tires and turn around and resell the vehicle, do they charge these same fees to the next person even though I have already paid them? Sounds like double dipping to me! And, they can't say that this is the cost for registering the vehicle because that is a separate line item.
They do want to see ya in a Kia. Take the documentation fee. If they charge you $200 and they sell 100 cars a month, that's $20,000 in their pocket.
They will tell you they cannot reduce the "internet price" because it's advertised as their best price. Noooo, it's advertised as their internet price. It does not say "best price" on their web advertisements.
On top of this, they will charge you a dealer prep fee of $699.00. The sales manager said that this is their profit. And, in the next breath, he also says he is making a profit on the car and when pushed comes back with, 'how do you know I;m making a profit on the car?" Reasonable question if it were not for the fact he just told me he was making a profit on the car.
So, if you like to try to be bullied into buying a car, or you want to be taken advantage, then I guess I'll see ya in a Kia. What ever happened to far and equitable business dealings?
I know three people who just got new kia's from this dealership,and all of them have engine problems, dealer is not working with them, they all qualified for lemon law, The nice family you see on tv...what a load of garbage. Dealership is not owning up. How could any parent use children to steal? If you or someone you know is car shopping, do the right thing and tell them about Kia's bad products and buisness practices!
I shopped around at several Kia Dealers in the area. This dealership by far treated me the best in Orlando. They took there time with me, showed me everythign that the Kia Forte had to offer. The gave me incentives because I am local to the Orlando area and set me up with a regular service schedule for my Kia!
I love the commercials with Preston and I love my new Kia!
