We had a great experience with Matt at Kia of Des Moines. He was very nice, not pushy, and discussed options with us and how various options would effect payments. We’ve never had a Kia before, so I can’t attest to the car yet, but based on the customer service, we’d go back.

Purchasing my new Soul was a very easy process. I was able to work out a deal with Jamie on line in the comfort of my own home which was wonderful. It was an easy process without having to haggle alot over the price. I made an offer of what I wanted to pay that I thought was reasonable and that is the price I paid. When I went in to do the paperwork I was able to meet Jamie who was a complete gem to work with. Love my new Soul!

I have been a Kia owner for quite some time. The people at Kia have treated me amazingly from purchase to finance to service. Jeff was a great salesman. Keeping me updated and informed of my new purchase. He was well informed about the vehicle and if I had any questions was able to answer them. The staff who went over the vehicle explaining th functions and setup was amazing. I can't remember her name, but she was great at explaining and showing me how setup features for my car. I would definitely refer my friends or family to Kia DM.

This monrning I applied online to get pre approved. I received a call from an associate almost immediately after applying. Went in a few hours later, tested out a car and left with key in hand. Mitch and the rest of the staff helped me out with a payment plan that was affordable, as well as a low rate! Best experience and associates ever!
