Everything about the dealership was good. But there was one major thing that happened that I didn't like. I was very direct and to the point about the financing department only running one credit report. I was assured several times that they would do that. Once everything was done and I got into the finance department, I was told they ran 3 reports. I ask him if he seen where I requested only to run one. He said yes, but he felt like he needed to do more. He did this without my permission. To me, that is a lack of trust and respect. I will not trust this dealership again nor will I recommend them to anyone.

This place was the best place ever to deal with. This car was my valentines gift and they were the best. They knew I didn’t want to spend a whole day in there doing all it takes but still got the message through to me. Come on people they could spend hours telling us about all the features but ya as adults need to read the extras in the handbook also. Common sense. I’m thankful for what they showed me the basics and I’ll take it from here soldier. Thanks Kia Country!

We moved down here in March we purchased our first Kia from Stokes KIA. Yes, Stokes have a better office setup and a bigger lot however, my personal experience was they were Impersonal, not always forthcoming and seem to cater toward a specific clientele.

Was having an issue with the android auto app on our new Sorento. Our amazing salesman, Elijah, prioritized us getting it working on our car with our phone. He got Chris in the service department to assist us and he was able to fix it in under 5 minutes and verified it with our phone. Chris and Elijah made sure our new car experience was the best it could be and prioritized solving the issue. They are kind and professional and an asset to Kia Country.

From the moment Mike called to give me info on my vehicle for trade I felt like the most important part of their day. Mike had the most amazing salesman, Elijah, help me! He was kind, attentive, and really understood my needs and what my family needed. They were able to get us in a new vehicle at a great rate and we didn't think it was possible. We were ready to purchase a used car that wasn't best for our family out of necessity and an hour later we were signing papers on our beautiful new car. This was the easiest, quickest, painless experience we've ever had. The whole staff was amazing, but Elijah was our blessing and gave us fantastic information. I will never go anywhere else again! You can not go wrong with Elijah at Kia Country of Charleston. This group is all about what is best for you and is just amazing!

New Soul For Mom

I can't say enough about how well Kia Country and Elijah Tucker takes care of me, my friends, and family. This month my mom turned 82 and it was time for a new car. Elijah took us all over the lot and even brought out a car from the back for mom to see. He ended up bringing out a Mars Orange Soul she fell in love with. Bless him for taking the time to show her the in's and out's of the electronics. Tucker treats us like family and that's what has kept me coming back. This was 4th car that Tucker has helped me purchase. A Special Thank You To All The Salesmen Who Lined Up and Sang Happy Birthday To My Mom! Thanks Elijah!

Friendly, quick and easy way to buy a car

I initially spoke with Dave Knight over the phone. He was able to let me know which Kia cars were in stock and on the lot for me to look at. I came to see him that afternoon and he helped me find the car and quickly was able to give me an estimate for purchase. He let me go home and think about making a decision for the vehicle. I liked that he was not pushing me to make a decision and he didn't show me anything out of my price range. The next day I went by, knowing that Dave was off, and was greeted by Elijah Tucker. He helped me take another look at the car I liked and my second choice car. He helped me fill out the application form and the financial ball rolling. I explained to him that I was going to make my final decision on Friday when Dave was back. On Friday I returned to take a test drive and buy the 2019 Kia Rio. Elijah greeted me agina and let me know that Dave was off, but that he could help me. We took a test drive and I purchased the car. Elijah was excellent to work with and he made the final purchase process smooth and easy Jeremy Wilson was also a great help as he went over the financing process I have been very please with the whole process.

Pathetic and unprofessional

Through all my years of hard work and dedication to acquire the things needed like transportation, I've never dealt with such unprofessionalism. Better business bureau needs to investigate this practice. In a customer service friendly environment, they are hostile and not helpful. It seems they are more towards making their quota for sales then making the consumer appreciate the value of their purchase. Worst experience ever.

Friendly, knowledgeable, and FAST!

I have been researching SUVs and after a lot of research, my husband and I decided on the Telluride. We've been hearing the Tellurides don't stay in stock. I was lucky to get to Kia of Charleston in time to see one that had just been delivered. I worked with Elijah, who has been there for many years. He was kind and not pushy- which I appreciate. Throughout the 2 afternoons we were there, several team members visited with us and made us feel welcome. We all know the buying process can be daunting, but it definitely was a pleasurable experience at Kia of Charleston. We love our new 2020 Telluride and recommend it 100%!

My experience with the Charleston Kia dealership was a two day process that ended wonderfully. I’m a first time car buyer and Elijah, one of the sales reps, was great. He was knowledgeable and very candid. He didn’t try to sell me something I couldn’t afford. He was very patient and worked with me to find and get a car I really enjoyed. He made my first car buying experience a great one.

Outstanding Customer Service

Good people like Elijah Tucker & the sales manager team, they work together. He paid attention to my needs & placed me in a vehicle that is perfect at a price I can afford. Mr. Tucker has integraty & decency; not something people say about a car sales person. He shook my hand and gave me his word that I would be happy with my Kia Country experience because he was and is dedicated to giving customers the best possible car buying experience. Together we looked at vehicles & Mr. Tucker engaged me with questions to determine whats was the best fit for me from his inventory. He returned to the sales manager & went to bat for me to get me a deal that works for me. Thanks to Kia, I now own a 2012 Soul SL. I was suprised by the additional accessories in the car and I am elated with my purchase. A huge Thank you to Kia Country of Charleston for my vehicle that is a nice mix of practical wagon with sporty attitude, loving it.

A Really Positive Experience

When my 2013 Chevy Cruze was abruptly sidelined (long story) I was desperate to find a solid replacement as quickly as possible. After several frustrating experiences with local dealerships who were overbearing and pushy, I stumbled onto an online listing for a 2012 Kia Soul that was available at Kia Country of Charleston. Unfortunately, their website listed the wrong transmission type. When I asked, though, Colby was kind enough to look into it for me and confirmed the mistake. His honesty, along with everything I'd read about Kia's epic level of quality-to-value, convinced me to give them a shot anyway. From the moment I walked in, I never once felt pressured into buying something I didn't need. I wasn't outnumbered by "sales managers" and they didn't try to redirect me to more expensive models. Colby greeted me as soon as I arrived, answered a few introductory questions, and arranged a discussion with Norm, who was knowledgeable (he educated me on the advantages of Certified Pre-Owned sales) and patient while I asked questions. When I told him the rough price range I was looking for, he didn't show me a bunch of upscale items and try to convince me I could afford them; he went straight to the least expensive vehicle that would not sacrifice quality, which was a 2016 Kia Soul Base with less than 43K miles (i.e. still "Certified"). Incredibly, he not only worked with me on the value of my trade-in, but he also arranged for me to "borrow" the car overnight so that I could have my personal mechanic examine it and drive it between financiers while I did some "homework." Norm wasn't there the following day, but he made sure that Elijah and Adam were informed enough to assist me. Adam secured *really* competitive financing for me while Elijah walked me through each form. Neither of them had any problem answering my many questions. In the end I drove off the lot with an *awesome* upgrade that is safe, reliable, affordable, and fun to drive. I would recommend Kia Country and Kia vehicles in general to anybody in a heartbeat based on my experience.

Fantastic Kia Dealership in Charleston!

I have had an awesome experience with Kia of Charleston. The service department is efficient, professional. The sales department is very professional and exceptional! I have bought many cars, sometimes I have had a little pressure and didn't really feel like I was being listened and respected as a customer because I am a female. I did not feel this way at this dealership. My salesman was Mr. Elijah Tucker. He just sat and talked with me and let me give him information to assist me. He didn't pressure me to any particular car or one with things I didn't want. He listened to me, respected what I had to say, was very professional and polite. He let me decide if I wanted to take my car for a drive. He gave me truthful and honest information on my trade in which I appreciate. They were happy that I traded a Kia for another Kia. I am very appreciative to Mr. Tucker for his exceptional customer service and care! Thank you.

Went in for a repair job...came out with a GREAT new car

My 2016 KIA Sorento had a sun roof that suddenly refused to close. I located KIA Country and made an appointment to get the roof fixed. When I dropped the car off I casually mentioned that I would like to see what new cars they had to offer. Sure enough, the sales person, Elijah Tucker, happened to be in the repair garage and we walked me over to the sales building. Elijah is a great guy who connected with me immediately, My greatest concern was safety, and while the Sorento had some safety features, it did not have everything available. Long story short, he loaned me a 2020 Telluride that DID have all of the safety features. After some friendly but instructive haggling, we reached a very fair deal and a bit more than 24 hours after coming to KIA Country my wife and I drove away in the borrowed car, but now the proud owners (see picture attached). God bless, Elijah, and hope to see you from time to time as I come in for regular maintenance!

In our family this is our 5th Kia purchase and we will continue to buy Kia cars. Each one has been durable and long lasting with ZERO problems. One we traded because it was mom's Sedona mini van, ran like a gem had 175000+ miles with no problems, mom doesn't need a mini van as kids are grown so she bought a Sportage.. Just got a Niro Hybrid the gas mileage is great. Dad has a Soul.

EXCEPTIONAL Customer Service

A Brief Back Story: I purchased a 2017 Kia Forte Sport in April 2017 after several meetings with Elijah Tucker, the congenial, competent, and caring sales advisor who facilitated my purchase. I met with Jason Leming in Finance who accepted my cash payment, as well as explained some additional warranty services. When seeing my address in Summerville, he realized I lived several houses away from the parents of his close friend. Fast Forward: Jason and I met again at a gathering at his friend's parents' home in July 2018. When I told him I still hadn't driven enough miles for my 5,000 Mile Scheduled Service, he said to contact him or Elijah when I do. As they both live in Summerville, either man can pick up my car, leave a car for my to use, and drive my car to Kia Country for the service. Music to my ears! Last week I called Elijah, who gladly picked up my car in the morning, left a 2019 Kia for me to drive, and returned my car that night. That afternoon Chelsea Rowland, Service Dept, had called re: services provided and cordially answered my questions. *****This was the BEST service appointment I've ever had...and I never had to leave home THANK YOU, ELIJAH!

First of all, this is our third car we have bought from there and it will not. E our last.

I asked for the OTD price in which they gave me then I asked for my trade in value and it couldn't be beat!

Elijah was very helpful and knowledgeable on the Kia Soul. I am very happy with my purchase of a new Kia and I love my new car. The gas mileage on the window sticker showed 31 for highway and by the time I got home I was already getting 38 mpg on my first tank of gas.

It really was no-haggle

After the devastating experience of having our car totalled in an accident, the last thing my nerves needed would have been to play the dickering game with a dealership. I researched cars online and found one that seemed like it would fit our needs. It was listed at a "no-haggle" price that seemed fair considering as the great features of the car, and we went to see it. Elijah and the rest of the dealership dealt with me with great compassion for my scary experience. We left the dealership after a short while with a car that has so many safety features that I will regain confidence about driving again.

It was a great experience

I was very impressed with the company as a whole. The car that I choose had a problem with the muffler, so a new one was installed while I waited. Everyone seems well educated about their products and could answer any questions I had on financing and getting the best deal.

Best car buying experience I've ever had!

I called on the phone before coming down and spoke with Michael, he was lovely and gave me all the information I asked for. So I went down to the dealership to trade in my car, while they appraised my car I took the two I was interested in for a test drive and decided which I'd like to purchase. Elijah, printed the initial numbers sheet and so I spoke with my bank, which I was given ample time and space to personally do so. He then came back over, we made everything work, printed out what I needed to. He then went to fill my new car up with gas, while Micahel printed and had me sign everything needed. I got my new keys and was on my way! 2 hours and I was in and out with the car I wanted! Perfect experience. Couldn't have asked for anything more! Thank you!!

2018 Kia Sportage LX-Absolutely wonderful buying experience!

I went into Kia with a 2008 Toyota Yaris, and I had just paid it off. It had a plethora of issues, mainly concerning safety down the road. I had been in the market for a decently new vehicle, with AWD. Elijah instantly guided me to a used 2018 sportage LX, and let me test drive it overnight. I came back the next day, quickly went through the financing process, signed and was sent on my way with a beautifully detailed car under 20,000! I would recommend them to anyone having trouble finding what they want AND great customer service at the same place.

Elijah Tucker is the best!!

The best thing about this dealership is Elijah Tucker - if my rating were based solely on him, it would have been a solid 5 out of 5! He listens to his customers, points out options without strong arming an upsale and is just generally pleasant to deal with! I did LOTS of homework before my recent purchase and felt like he respected that. If you go, ask for Elijah!! Like another customer, I was surprised by the high interest and long loan offered by KIA - no shorter terms or lower interest rates were offered, despite my having stellar credit (score > 800). If I didn't already have the option to move the loan to another lender, I would likely have walked away from the deal. This is where they make the additional money, if you work out what you feel is a fair deal - the manager is in charge of financing and will offer long term loans with higher interest rates than you can get elsewhere. Do you homework before going!! The most tiring part of the process is once you finally make it to the final paperwork. I was handed off to Frank, who is really nice, but he tried ... and tried... and tried to sell me an extended warranty that I didn't want. I realize he is just doing his job, but by that point, most folks are tired and just ready to be done! Long story short, it took almost three hours to complete the process, so plan to spend a chunk of time there when you go!! Lastly, be sure to find out about any available rebates before you do your negotiation! I worked out what I felt like was a pretty fair deal - I was asking for what I felt was fair for my trade in and they came down below what I was originally told would be the drive out price. Felt fair until I noticed that the paperwork was written up as my having paid $1,000 more for the car and that I was using a $1,000 rebate. WAIT - what rebate!? I hadn't been told there was rebate, much less that I was using one!! Had I known that, I probably would have offered $1,000 less on the front end. But I'm sure they know that - so don't sit there and wait for them to OFFER any rebates - ASK about them!

Easy, comfortable process — Good price.

Started with a test drive. Connected with Mike when checking pricing online and TrueCar sent my info along to the dealership. Half a dozen emails and then we came in to close the deal with Elijah. While they clearly wanted to make a sale (that's their job), there were no games and no high pressure tactics — none of the clichés that lead to "car salesmen" jokes. Got the car we wanted at a price we're happy with, and buying a new car doesn't get much better than that. Look forward to working with the dealership in the months and years ahead.

I was convinced that I was never going to find a vehicle to replace my car of 11 years.

My experience with Kia Country was phenomenal from the second that I pulled on to the lot and I am so incredibly happy that Eliljah Tucker was there to help me. He was patient with all of my questions and never pressured me, and I felt that he sincerely cared. I couldn't be happier with my purchase or the experience as a whole. The only thing I wish I would have done differently was that I should have visited Kia Country first!! Thank you Elijah!

Admitting Error and Making it Right

Took my Kia in for service, somehow between the dealership and Bees Ferry (.3mil) my car's transmission fluid was empty. Initially it looked bleak, but after speaking to the service manager I got a loaner (nicer than what I owned) and they took care of the tow. The next day I went in with a list of demands and Steve Applebaum (manager) met all but one (and it was beyond his control) ... Wasn't planning on getting a new car but with the financing and dealership deal I bought one ... They gave me full trade in value for my car and moved my towing package and Thule over at no cost ... I feel like they made it right ... And they will have a repeat customer.

A Great Dealer Experience Under Trying Circumstances

When I first visited Kia Country a little over a year ago, I had no intention of buying a car: I was just gathering information. Elijah Tucker met me at the door and offered to help. Less than an hour later with no pressure tactics, I left with a proposal to take home and consider: a great 2016 Optima at a good price and easy financing. After discussing it with my wife, I decided to go for it. It was a great decision: that Optima was a fantastic car in every respect. Fast forward to 9/11/2017. Hurricane Irma brought flood waters raging through my garage. The insurance adjuster said my beautiful car was a total loss. Even with my attempts to dry it out as soon as the water receded the salt water would, they said, cause inumerable problems in the months ahead. I picked up the phone and called Elijah. He and the team at Kia Country put me in the exact car that I wanted (the 2018 Optima is even better!) the very next day at a fair price with no hassle. They not only didn't take advantage of my desperate situation, they threw in some extra help from Kia: an additional $750 of Hurricane Irma Relief Cash. If you are tired of the "wear you down" tactics employed by so many other dealerships, treat yourself to a great experience as well as a great car at Kia Country of Charleston.

Well, it used to be a nice dealership...

I've called a number of times to retrieve an offer on a new Soul Turbo. Each time I was told they had been busy but would get right back to me. Nobody ever did. I initiated more calls than I would for any other business because I've purchased from this dealership in the past and typically get my vehicle serviced here as well, but they must think I'm not worth the time. EDIT: The dealership contacted me after they discovered this review. I'm convinced had they not seen a negative review, they would have never reached out at all. Originally, I wanted an offer to buy a new Turbo Soul during a sale in which KIA Country was advertising that they would make payments in addition to payments KMF would make to total a year's worth of payments before I needed to begin making payments. I called multiple times during this sale, and never received a call back. They finally called back after the sale had ended, and only because I had posted my original review. In an attempt to make things up, they made an offer for a Soul Turbo with Tech package at $24198 and making payments for me through Jan. 2018. All I wanted was for them to honor the original sale that I tried to take advantage of which was no payments for 1 year. They would not honor that. Their offer instead was to make the payments through Mar. 2018. I decided I would accept this. But wait, there's more. Then the price became $26420. Which was a steal at a mark-down from their advertised price of $29584. Mind you, KIA's MSRP for a Turbo Soul with Tech Package is $26695. Even better, the TrueCar Average for the Turbo Soul with Tech Package is $23818. (This is not looking like such a great deal anymore.) A nearby competitor has this model listed for $24770 Then, to add insult to injury, this special offer then included payments through Feb. 2018. Wouldn't even honor the original offer I agreed to which included payments through Mar. 2018. Now, I'm sure given the fact that they respond to every review, they will have something to say. But guys, it really was pretty simple in the beginning to have another thoroughly satisfied customer here, but I can't abide by bait-and-switch and other nasty tactics like have been employed here this time.

Thankful for Elijah

Elijah has helped me with 3 different leases. Always helpful, professional, knowledgeable and just enjoyable to be around. This past week I had a flat tire and knew I could count on Elijah for his assistance and expertise! Even though I've had my current car for over a year, I know I can always call him if something comes up! Thank you Elijah! I look forward to working with you again in the future.

The staff was very helpful, our dealer was Elijah and he helped us out a bunch. They made sure to put my husband and me on the title, so I could build some credit. We didn't get as much as we wanted on the our trade, but they just did it based on Kelly blue books so what are you gonna do. Our new car is great and has an awesome warranty. We're very happy to have found a legit car dealership that isn't trying to scam you around every corner.

Repeat customer, even better this time!

This is my second visit to this dealer. My second Optima, even the car is better. The building is clean, nice greeting upon arrival. The salesman I had last time was there, which was seven years ago. Elijah is fast and efficient. My appointment was at 11:00 and I was completely done by 12:45! I felt they were up front about pricing and I didn't have to go through an exhaustive wear down like some dealers do. My trade in was quickly evaluated. In the end, it was an enjoyable experience which I had come to dread from past experiences. I love the Optima and the 2017 model is REALLY nice. They include many nice features on the LX. It's a nice ride.... All people I met were courteous and efficient. Also they have nice service program. Friendly, efficient and, they aim to please! Highly recommended.

CSI is top notch

I and my family have been in the car business before and we know pretty much the ends and outs from F&I back to service. This store has a good business model of just doing the right thing for owners and taking care of customers. The sales staff was excellent and management even took care of an issue after purchase that I AM SURE the local competitor would have told me tough luck on. Today while waiting on an oil change I heard three different conversations with advisors telling customers they DIDNT need a service or tires yet! Thats right they were doing the right thing! kudos to tim and chelsea! Tony Taylor

Kia Country Is The Best Dealership in Charleston

From the moment you walk in the door, you feel comfortable in the dealership. The customer service and assistance with finding the right car "fit" for you is outstanding. I was not pressured into buying, but was able to look at all of my options for getting into something that worked for my life. Elijah Tucker took great care with me in choosing a car, and assisted me with working out the details of my many options. After I purchased my new car, Elijah showed me how to work all of the "bells and whistles" that came with it. I purchased a previous car with Elijah Tucker at this dealership in 2013, and received excellent customer service and care, including the outstanding members of the service team. I often posted on FaceBook when I "checked in" during my regular service visits for oil change and tire rotation. I have been complimented often on the look of my car, and always tell them to "go see Elijah at Kia Country!" I bought a 2017 version of the exact same car, as I loved it so much. Great cars, great service, and great team!!

Completely relaxed and transparent transaction as I leased a vehicle for the first time. Elijah, my Sales Consultant, and Carlos, the Sales Manager treated me fairly and competently. If they didn't know an answer immediately, they would say so; then they researched the answer and always closed the loop with me. I made an offer which I thought was fair; they were able to beat it and helped me drive away "under budget". Now I'm looking forward to learning to operate the myriad bells and whistles on my new Sorento. (There sure are a lot of them for the price of this car!)

good experience

I saw a truck that I wanted to see online and spoke with the internet manager, who asked me to ask for him when I got there. I did that, and he promptly cycled me to one of the salespeople. My "product specialist" name was Elijah and I gotta say, really liked this guy! Being that it was a Kia dealership, it wasn't too much of a surprise that he didn't know a ton about the giant Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 that I was interested in, but he was forthcoming about that and always willing to get additional help to answer any questions I had about it. He had the truck cleaned so I could see what it looked like without the layer of dust that was on it and I appreciated the level of service that he offered. We didn't have any restrictions on our test drive time or distance and that gave me the time I needed to get a very good feel for the vehicle I was interested in. The purchase process was pretty simple and they worked with me a little on the price, approaching what I wanted to pay for the vehicle. All in all, I feel I was dealt with fairly, professionally and friendly. I'd have no problems sending a friend here to buy a vehicle. Thank you!

Pleasurable Experience

It's always a pleasure to shop for cars at Kia Country. I've been dealing with Elijah Tucker for many years and he is professional, friendly, knowledgeable, courteous, and helpful in all aspects of the purchasing process. There's never a gimmick or an attempt to sell you a vehicle you're not interested in. The focus is always on you the customer and your preferences in the vehicle you're interested in. Also, Carlos and Brian are instrumental in the sales process and are very helpful and have the customer's interests at heart always. Mitch, the service manager, is also a very valuable asset to Kia Country, as he runs a very efficient service department along with his team. The sales and service department both offer the best experience I have ever found in an automobile dealership, and this latest purchase last week was, if I'm counting right, my 10th vehicle I've purchased from Kia Country and I plan on staying with them for all future purchases.

He didn't try to persuade us to upgrade to a more expensive model and he was very nice and calm. I got more for my trade-in than I expected so that was a nice extra.

Great experience!

Elijah Tucker was the best salesperson I could have asked for. He not only answered all my questions, he also was a really fun car-test-driving companion! Elijah and others at the dealership took time to go over several financing options with me until we found the right one. I received a good deal on a new car and reduced my monthly car payment significantly! I am thrilled with my new Soul and will recommend KIA Country of Charleston and Elijah Tucker to anyone looking for a no-pressure, positive car-buying experience.

Things turned around for the better

Ayanna & Elijah were 2 of the most amazing people at the dealership. I dealt with them strictly over the phone. My family was very precise in the type of vehicle we wanted and had it all mapped out as to what color and the particular extra package we wanted on the vehicle. After a misunderstanding in the ordering of the wrong vehicle. We were promised that they would order the correct vehicle and would have it by Monday. It was delivered to our home & all is well. Thank you once again Ayanna & Elijah The Williams Family

Consistently efficient and reasonable

I have been using Kia Country of Charleston exclusively for years through two cars, one old and troublesome and the second bought brand new from the dealership. I have nothing but good things to say about them. They deliver personalized service, reasonable pricing, honest evaluations and pleasant attitudes. If you can get a few more miles out of your brakes, they will tell you that, and not just replace them for the extra $$. I trust them and I like them.

Worked had to meet my needs

Gave me advice prior to my purchase that saved me lots of money!! As a new business entrepreneur, I was able to upgrade my purchase and save money long term based off the information provided by Daniel and Elijah. This is what makes Kia Country successful and also why I Highly Recommend them for your next Kia Purchase!!

My 4th Car @ Kia Country , Please Read BEFORE You Buy!!!

Hello , My name is Tzahi and I live In Myrtle Beach , SC. I have no words how to tell you how much I love to do business with the people @ Kia Country. My relationship with Kia Country starts back on 2006 when I purchased my new car, It was brand new Kia Sorento 2006. I was searching for a new kia back then and Kia Country beat the price I got from Myrtle Beat Myrtle Beach Kia by over 40% , Myrtle Beach Kia has a "Buy One Get One "FREE" promotion back then and what they did is actually double the price of the car but I didn't BUY this promo and I tried Wilmington NC , Florence and then Kia Country in Charleston , they ask for 26k+ and Kia Country sold me the same car over the phone with the same equipment for $18,188 out of the door. salesmen back then was Jermine but he is no longer work there. Since then I purchased A brand new Kia Borrego 2009 , a brand new Kia Sedona 2010 and now my 4th one is Kia Sedona 2015. I have no way to share how every single sale was so smooth , so patient , every time when I had a question they call back or answer right on the the moment. Every single person in that place is deserve a big star , start with salespersons , the management and the finance dept. I can't review on service because I never had my cars service there because I live in Myrtle Beach and its like 2 hours drive. On every single transaction I was very nag about the price and they still tried to beat or reduced the payment for me just to make me happy. When I purchased my 2011 Sedona I had a situation with the mirror and they credit me $100 back because of the misunderstood - It was taking care by Steve the manager. This time again , I sit with salesperson with Myrtle Beach Kia and I almost signed a lease deal for $420/month with 15,000 miles , I told the salesperson I will not sign any docs until I check with kia country and thats what I did , I called Steve and ask if it worth for me to lease and not to buy and he explained over the phone and told me don't sign I will get you a better price. Steve called afrer 5 min maybe with offer for same car , same equipment with same mileage for $280/month and $2700 down while Myrtle Beach was again $420/month and $3500 down. I then told Steve to get me the model I want and he found me one in GA , the only SX-LIMITED in the area and exchange with another dealer. I just don't know how to thank him! Now , When I went to pickup my new Sedona EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THE OFFICE STEPPED OUTSIDE TO SEE THE CAR BC IT WAS THE ONLY SX-L IN THE AREA FULLY LOADED! THIS CAR IS JUST LIKE A SPACESHIP! Mr Tucker himself open the door for us , explain every single button on the car then Steve joined him and cover what was unknown for Tucker. I just have no words. I suggest every single person who want to buy Kia , TRY KIA COUNTRY AFTER YOU GET A QUOTE FROM ANOTHER DEALER , THEY WILL BEAT THE PRICE!!! I own a beach store , I have nothing to do with Kia Country , Im not a partner there (I wish) and I don't know the employees , management or the owners directly , I'm another happy customer. My beach store phone number is 843-238-0603 Just in case you want to confirm this review. They will do anything to help you , to make you happy and let you feel like you worth a million dollar there , they look at you on your eye level , they don't hassle or push you to buy because of one reason , they already know you be back because none of the dealers in SC can give you the price they will! I promise you ! Give it a try! Before I forget I want to thank Brian Smith as well for his help , this guy will work with you on your papers and signatures , very honest , will answer any question you have. Thank you Brian. I will be on my way soon to lease probably the 2015 Sorento and trade my 2009 Boreggo. I don't know why I know I can say that with confident but I really trust 3 people there , Elijah Tucker , Steve Appelbaum and Brian Smith because I work with them directly and if they said , say , promise or tell you something you can trust them !!! THANK YOU KIA COUNTRY SORRY FOR THE LONG REVIEW BUT I HAVE TO!

"Elijah's The Man"

This is our second Kia we have bought from Kia Country and Elijah. He understands what we want and makes no promises as to price or what he can do. He knows a lot about the product he is selling and does not try to sell you on something that you do not want. My wife loves her new Sorrento and we would not hesitate to come back again to Kia Country and Elijah.

Elijah is the man

Even two years after our recent purchase of 2 kias - elijah still shows that he cares...whether it's when we pop in for service, or check out the new line - knowing that we are a year before another purchase - he treats us like we're friends. kudos to him and we'll stay in touch.. and looking forward to our 2016 next year.

Our Sales Experience

Just had to comment on the quality of service that Elijah Tucker gave us. He, by far, went above and beyond and all the time he spent with us trying to find the right car and the right deal within our budget was very rare. We highly commend him for his excellent service and time that he took to help us. We will be passing his name along to anyone we know that is in the market for a car. We love our new Sorento! With many thanks to you again, Elijah, Herbie Morris Suzie Stallone
