Testimonials

I would highly recommend going to University Kia if you’re looking for a car. I love mine.

I had a great experience. When I went to University Kia I parked at the far side of the lot because I didn’t want to be pressured by a salesman. I saw a salesman walking toward me and I thought “Oh here we go”. The salesman introduced himself (Randy Wallace) and gave me a lot of information about the car I was looking at. I told him I was not going to buy anything that day because I was still looking around. He gave me his card and told me to let him know if I needed anything. That was the reason I went back. If he had started rushing me to buy something and pressuring me, I would not have gone back. When I did go back, he gave me the information that I needed to pick the car I wanted. He did not try to get me to buy the most expensive car, he just told me about the car I was looking at and the different options. I was the one who fell in love with the fire orange Forte in the showroom :) They worked with me and I drove the car I wanted off the showroom floor that day. Everyone was very friendly and honest. It did take quite a while to finish the process, but that’s probably the case wherever you buy a car. I would highly recommend going to University Kia if you’re looking for a car. I love mine.

Worth the drive from Maryville

Great experience working with this staff. Called on Friday and was able to set everything up for our new Telluride over the phone in about 30 minutes. Drove in today and filled out paperwork, and headed back to Maryville! If you need a Kia and want a great deal and smooth process it’s well worth the drive!!

We will be back!!

I can’t say enough great things about this dealership! My mother in law lost her husband and was in a bind with their car payment. Maurice Dobbins and his staff treated her like family and put her in a safe vehicle with a smaller payment. When relationship building is your main focus, like this dealership; it’s set for success! Thank you, Maurice and staff, for truly going above and beyond!

Thank you!

My husband and I went to University Kia in hopes of getting a used 2015 Chrysler 200 that I had saw online that I had fell in love with. The salesman I encountered was Randy Wallace and he was so helpful and really tried his hardest to get me in the car I wanted (and now have). The team at University Kia helped us tremendously and I couldn't thank them enough!

Very Welcoming

I went to u kia to look around and left the lot in a 2018 Optima. I couldn't be more pleased with it. This is my first time buying a Kia and I'm in love. My hubby loves it too! Ben Randall was very nice and helpful. He greeted us at the door and answered all my questions. The paperwork was done quickly and they worked to get the payments within our budget. I will be back for sure.

Awesome to work with and got us a lot of great savings. Our credit is horrible and he still got us into a brand new 2017 Kia Soul. We are so geeked over our new car I still have to look out my window to believe that we just got our first brand new car ever. Definitely stop in and check out the greats savings at the credit clinic in Huntsville, AL. You think you can't have a new car but you're wrong, you can!

A great experience...

I'm husband and I was assisted by Russell and he was fantastic.... He was very professional and I did not feel the quick rush of the general car sales pitch and pressure. It was a such a positive experience. Also, Corey, the finance person, was very knowledgeable and helped us complete the paperwork. Russell and the staff that we worked with was great! Thank you for making the experience a stress free one. The Fletcher's

I stopped by Kia on university drive to look at some vehicles. I was approached by an extremely friendly salesperson by the name of Alvin Sawyer. He was so helpful and informative that I ended up buying a brand new Kia Forte from him. This young man was truly professional and kept a smile on his face during the whole time. Thank you Kia for my new car and the great experience I had with Mr. Sawyer today. It was well worth the visit. I highly recommend Kia to everyone who is looking to buy a car!

I think Kia has the best selection around. Dustin Beaver is a great salesman, very polite and easy to talk to, and not pushy. He knows the vehicles and business very well. I've enjoyed working with him.
