Two reasons for this rating: 1) Elijah Tucker, our sales rep. Elijah was the least pushy sales rep I have ever worked with! We first stopped at Kia of Charleston to look at a Kia Sportage. We were short on time and only had time for a quick test drive before we had another appointment to meet. Elijah didn't give us any of the "well if you don't buy it now then it may not be here when you come back in 3hrs!" nonsense. We're adults... we know that. Elijah had the car detailed and with a full tank of gas by the time we got back! This isn't the reason we bought the car, obviously, but it was nice to see that he wanted to ensure we got into a clean vehicle that was ready to hit the road. Couldn't be happier with his service. 2) Zola Gearding, our finance rep. Ugh.. finance reps... they're the worst. Not Zola! She was VERY helpful. She fully explained the CPO warranty and didn't mind the various questions that I had as my fiance was trying to finish all of the paperwork. She was thorough and didn't leave any stones unturned. She was also hilarious and had a very people-person, positive attitude! All finance reps should be taking lessons from Zola. Overall, my fiance quickly found the car she wanted and we had an amazing experience at Kia Country of Charleston. This is truly an establishment that values the customer experience. I'd say we got a fair price for the car, nothing to write home about, but we definitely didn't get taken advantage of. I will be very quick to recommend this location to anyone looking for a new set of wheels, and I will specifically mention Elijah and Zola every time!

I started working in sales and finance management at a Kia dealership in Lexington, Kentucky in 2010. I joined Kia Country of Charleston in January of 2018 as the General Sales Manager. I enjoy helping people get great deals on great cars, new or used. I take pride in what I do and emphasize attention to detail and great customer service to my salespeople. I understand that customers can buy cars at numerous places, and my job is to make customers shopping and purchasing process as convenient as possible. I care more about making customers happy than I do about making a lot of money on a car deal. The car business is gratifying to me because I am in a position to change people's lives for the better on a daily basis. Even though I'm busy most of the time as the GSM, I love to get out and help customers one-on-one. It all comes down to one simple rule; Treat others as you wish to be treated. That's why you should come to Kia Country when you look to purchase your next vehicle.

Words can not express my gratitude for Steve Applebaum...

Words can not express my gratitude for Steve Applebaum (GM) and the staff at KIA Country of Charleston. Too make a long story , Medium length My Mom Lives in North Charleston, SC and I reside in Georgia. My Mom was recently involved in a head on collision and her vehicle was a total loss. I started searching for a replacement vehicle for her. I found a few vehicles that she was interested in on Kia Country of Charleston's website and contacted them to discuss her situation. My Mom needed a car immediately and could not wait two weeks for me to get there. I initially spoke with Steve and he set me up with the sales associate Jordan Reaves. After finalizing price and additional add on (i.e. Maintenance agreement , additional floor mats etc.) we were ready to buy a beautiful, Certified Kia Sportage. Even though we found the vehicle, Our conundrum was not over just yet, my mom had no way to get there, to test drive, sign paper work or anything. I suggested she take a lyft or uber, you would have thought I was speaking a different language, lol. My mom is not tech savvy at all. Considering the situation, Joran (The sales associate) was so kind and volunteered to pick my mother up , let her test drive the vehicle, swing by her bank pick up a certified check and bring her back to the dealership to sign her paperwork. When she arrived at Kia Country she was very comfortable, She said Steve , Jordan and all the staff was Great to work with and very knowledgeable. She couldn't be happier with her purchase. I have done business with them in the past and I knew they would take good care of her, However it is still nerve wreaking trying to help your mom when you live in a different state and to trust that people will not try to take advantage of her. I am so thankful for all that you guys did for my family, You guys will forever be our go to dealership because you can truly see that Kia country of Charleston goes above and beyond for their customers and are the epitome of excellent service. Thank you, Thank You, Thank You, I would give you all 10 stars if I could. -Mon'e Williams, Hampton, GA.

I’ve always had my kias serviced there and feel like their service department is also honest, straightforward, and conservative with their recommendations.

I made several trips and Jorden was always patient with me. He never got angry and answered every question. I traveled past other Kia's to work with him. Jorden & Jason made sure I got the best deal and even got my windows tinted.

I cannot say enough great things about Kia Country of

I cannot say enough great things about Kia Country of Charleston!! In my search for a 2022 Telluride I had dealt with a few other dealerships that were just plain rude or way overpriced so when I saw the ad for the exact Telluride I was looking for, I knew not to get my hopes up given my past experiences. But boy was I wrong! I spoke on the phone with Charles Fritz to discuss pricing on a late Friday afternoon and we were able to come up with an excellent price for purchase. I lived 3 hours away and I am disabled so he was very accommodating and agreed to hold the vehicle until I got there that afternoon to ensure it would not be sold while I was in route. He advised I would be working with Jorden on the floor to test drive the car and complete paperwork. Ten minutes before I arrived I received a very polite call from Jorden so I could "recognize his voice" and he would be on the lookout for us; we pulled in and were immediately greeted by him. He was very polite and eager to help and answer any questions. As we were filling out paperwork, Charles came over to introduce himself and "put a face with a name". The whole process was seamless and worry-free. I never felt pressured or uncomfortable and everyone there was so nice. I would definitely recommend Kia Country of Charleston to anyone looking for excellent customer service!

I went to Kia country after trying serveral other dealerships with less vehicles. Jorden showed me a K5 and I fell in love. I was nervous about driving it but he happily drove me on a test drive. He’s checked on me a few times since I bought it. I love it and I’ll send anyone that asks about my car to Jorden!

I lived my entire life in Georgia and moved to Charleston two years ago. I sell cars with integrity and want to dispel the perception of the "sleazy car salesman." When a customer leaves happy with the car that they purchased and the service they received, then I am satisfied. I enjoy sports and play video games in my spare time.
