2nd time buying a vehicle from KIA and I cannot express how happy I have been. They have treated me kindly and understanding of my limits. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for good valued vehicles with very accommodating warranty coverages. I will always go to KIA first when shopping for a vehicle. Thank you!

I had the absolute BEST service at Kia! One night I was curious as to what car I wanted to get and I ended up on Kias webpage and fell in LOVE with a used 2019 Kia Forte. I immediately put in for a pre-approvement just to see what could happen and right away Kim Armstrong (my sales rep) emailed me with the questions he needed to set the process along. That day I was able to get in, find out all of the information about my new car, test drive it, and leave the lot with a new ride under 2 hours! In previous times, I’ve gone to other dealerships and had the absolute worst service that ended me leaving without finding what I needed - but not Kia. I 100% recommend this dealership to everyone looking for new or used vehicles. The service and quality of both the cars and employees is outstanding! Great job, Kia! And a huge thank you to Kim and his team for working with me on my new future!

Steve made this buying process so easy and minimal stress!! He asked us questions and got to know us and help narrow down what we were looking for. He answered all of our questions and made this a very good experience. Presley did a a fantastic job going over all the options. She didn't rush through them and answered all of our questions. I will definitely recommend anyone looking for a car to try Kia!!

I just purchased a brand new Kia Sorento. I absolutely love the vehicle. I worked with Bill Blair, he was able to do most of the work via email. Was very professional, courtesy, knowledge and attentive. Everyone at Kia of Des Moines were so welcoming and helpful. This was such an easy awesome car buying experience and incredibly convenient for me! Thank you to everyone at Kia of Des Moines. Bill was so great, and Presley who helped show me how to master my new vehicle was also great! Geri Rathje
