I went the Internet Sales route - having 'built' my Kia Sorento on kia.com after having spent a week and a half or so researching vehicles and finally settling on the Sorento, for its look, features, mpg, 3rd row option and above all lower price than comparable CUVs. The purchase couldn't have been smoother. I thank Mike Todd for that. He'd only been in his new job role (Internet Sales) 3 days.. but it didn't seem like it. He made the sales experience comfortable and seamless from the very start. After submitting my inquiry through kia.com and selecting Beaverton Kia, Mike called within the hour, Asking how he could help. We lined up 2 test drives, one on Friday with the I4 AWD and the other on Saturday with the V6 AWD. The 6 didn't feel as sluggish as the 4, and I didn't notice any shakiness whatsoever on the 6 at the traffic lights. Plus - you can definitely feels the horses behind the pedal of the 6. Funny - I went in expecting to purchase a 4 with FWD and GDI, and left with a 6 with AWD ;). But I'm glad Mike talked me into it, for the reasons he laid out. I trusted Mike every step of the way, he respected the price targets I wanted, took note of the color preferences and features I was interested in and found exactly the car I was looking for in the 2012 series. He drove 3 hours from Beaverton to Puyallup WA in order to make the deal possible. I couldn't have asked for a better person to work with. Thanks Mike for all that you did to complete the sale after having answered all my questions (via email/in person). I wish you the best.
