I drive about 450 miles a week and I’m in getting my oil changed about every 2-3 months. I have found the people in the service area to be helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. I love the video they send me of what they inspected on my car and recommended services. I’ll always go there for service.

Mitch was amazing! I went in three different times: The first time, I called ahead and told him what I wanted and he had things ready for me when I arrived to test drove 2 cars. The next time my husband test drove 3 cars to make sure they would be comfy for him on long trips, and the third time we bought the Soul. So much room! Then they had Presley go over all the technology with us. She showed us short cuts and tricks, helped me pair my phone and download optional apps. The whole group and the experience was the best I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Thanks so much Kia - Well done!

The service and selection when I bought my Kia Sportage was excellent. Everything was explained to me regarding features of my new car before I drove it off. The most stress free car decision I think I've ever made since I've been driving!

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.

Joe was wonderful. I had requested to see one specific vehicle and he had it all ready for me to test drive. This was by far the easiest car buying experience I have ever had. Including the test drive I was in and out in 90 minutes! Thanks Joe for making this such a wonderful experience!
