Dealership Information

If you happen to be a recent college graduate or don’t have a solid line of credit established, we can still help you get your hands on a vehicle as soon as today here at University Kia! With our first-time car buyer program, you’ll be the one holding the keys sooner than you think and we’ll work closely with you so you leave our dealership with a rate you’re confident in. Our dealership is located at 6519 University Drive in Huntsville, AL, and we hope to see you soon!

First-Time Car Buyer Program

When you stop into our Credit Clinic, one of our friendly team members will explain and guide you through the entire process of our first-time car buyer program. We know purchasing your first vehicle is a special moment and we want to make sure you start this phase off on the right foot. We’ll discuss several payment options that you can go with whether you have a stellar line of credit or no credit. We work with multiple banking connections and will find you a loan that aligns with your budget perfectly. Then, we’ll break up the final cost of the vehicle into affordable monthly segments that won’t put a strain on your wallet. If you’re thinking of leasing the vehicle, no problem! We’ll discuss how long and how many miles you’d like to drive the car and then we’ll construct a lease plan that corresponds to your financial situation. In the end, you’ll be walking out of our doors with a monthly rate that will allow you to take more of those desired weekend getaways!

Wide Inventory

You can get your car search started right from where you’re sitting. Head to the New tab at the top of our website and select from a make or category from the drop-down menu. Then, you’ll be able to detail your hunt even further by years, trims, engines, and price. At first glance, you’ll see each model’s interior and exterior color along with its drivetrain. If you want to view additional information, click on any image. If you happen to be on a budget, take a look at our pre-owned models. With makes like Ford, Chevrolet, and Mazda, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for. You can even check out the vehicle’s CARFAX® History Report™ to see how many times its switched hands and if it’s been through any accidents or damage in the past. When you’ve found a contender, visit us to take it for a test drive.

Online Tools

If you’re confident enough to begin the financing process, we provide you with some convenient online tools that you can use. You can begin by completing our Finance Application, located under the Finance tab, to get a crucial step out of the way. Just enter your information in the required fields and submit your form to us. Once we’ve reviewed it, one of our representatives will contact you. After, take a look at our Payment Calculator if you want to figure out the purchasing power for the vehicle you’re set on or start forming a monthly payment rate. We also have current incentives that you can take a look at, which we update often, that might save you some of that hard-earned cash!

When you’re ready, come down to University Kia to get all the details on our first-time car buyer program near Athens, AL. If you have any questions before driving down, our team is just a call away at 888-473-3751. We hope to hear from you!

We were very satisfied with the service done on our KIA Sedona. Stan was informative, very prompt, and on the money in keeping us informed during the whole process. I would recommend the service department to friends and family, or anyone really, wholeheartedly! Thanks University KIA and Stan!!

The whole process took only about 2 hours

University Kia was a great experience. I came for oil change, multi point inspection, and tire replacement on 10/10/19. Pauley, one of the managers, arranged for everything to be done on time. He was very polite and friendly and carried me thru the whole process seamlessly. He also gave me a free shuttle service to work and back. The whole process took only about 2 hours. Keep up the good work!

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.
