Had the best experience during a service appointment today with Jared! Jared took the time to discuss my service options, he also spent additional time with me to discuss other Telluride options, upgrades, and upcoming enhancements that I may be interested in. He also gave a great recommendation for a body shop for some minor fixes and made me feel comfortable the entire time. He was very nice, positive and personable!

My experience was great from start to finish! What impressed me the most is I was always asked if I had any questions before we moved on to the next part of the process. Then to have my new vehicle pulled in the garage to have someone show me all the features was the icing on the cake!

I love my car. I just don't like that I wasn't offered a remote start for my new 2020 kia Sportage. There is an app but it's doesn't work very well. Unfortunately I didn't make sure it already came with a remote start control. Otherwise I would have rated it a 5 star experience.

Randy spent almost an hour working with me to find the right fit for my needs. He was very thorough in asking the right questions to get a clear picture of my needs and budget. He gave me honest, straightforward answers and suggestions. I did not wind up buying the car that would have been a good fit for me only because someone offered to give me their car, so I am no longer in the market, but I strongly recommend that if you are in the market for a late model Kia, go to Kia of Des Moines and ask for Randy Crabb.

Oil change, tire rotation - regular mantainence.
