I have been a customer at Thomas Kia of Highland for the past five years and will not go anywhere else! My family has purchased a Sorento, Cadenza and Telluride and every time have been met with professionalism and service that far exceeded our expectations. We were unable to find what we were looking for or receive the kind of attention we were given at Kia at other dealerships years ago---that is why we are loyal customers! If you want a fair, honest and reliable car-buying experience, you will find it here. Mike, Itxel, Nick and Sam have been the sales staff we have met with regularly. Routine maintenance with the service and parts department was also a very easy and affordable experience, especially when we were leaving on a long vacation and wanted to ensure our vehicle was ready to go. We have dealt with Neddie in the service department as well as Matt in the finance office.

Today I had a great experience purchasing my Kia Sportage thanks to the salesman John Roney. He gave plentiful information on the features of my SUV. Helped me get a great price and made me feel comfortable in signing the dotted line. I'm loving the truck and couldn't be happier.

The people were nice & friendly however, it took a little over three hours to get my flat tire fixed. I thought it took longer because they’d spent extra time washing it but that wasn’t the case. I have spots all over the windows/ mirrors, the rims weren’t clean and it was as if it just got a quick spray down. I’m shocked after having someone wait that long it’d be acceptable to leave it like that. It was my first time getting serviced there so hopefully next time is better.
