    Hertz Car Sales Nashville - Nashville / Tennessee

    Located 6 miles away from Nashville, TN

    Dealer Review:

    I'm a first time car buyer and the experience was a breeze here. The staff were super friendly and helpful, and everyone there was willing to work with me to make the process of buying a car as smooth as possible. My sister and brother-in-law also bought cars here and their experience led me to give them a chance-very glad I did. I would 100% recommend this place to anyone looking for a good deal on a vehicle without the hassle of feeling "forced" to buy their vehicle. Give them a call, or stop in and check out their inventory...you won't regret it!

    Dealer Review:

    I recently purchased a pre-owned 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Throughout the process, Cole was helpful, professional, and most importantly, was able to work with me to meet my budgetary needs without being pushy in any way. I was very satisfied with the service provided, and in the overall sales process. I will definitely recommend my friends to your dealership, and advise them to ask for Cole specifically, as he can certainly get things done!

    Dealer Review:

    I drive about 500 miles per week with my job. My husband and I went in to browse our options for a car with better MPG without compromising on comfort. We had no intention of purchasing that day. Taylor Gannon was our salesman. My husband let him know ahead of time that I am not very tolerant of being pressured (an understatement). He was an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you for a great experience, Taylor. Each day with my car has been a great experience and I would absolutely do it all over again. Thank you!

    Universal Kia Hickory Hollow - Antioch / Tennessee

    Located 11 miles away from Nashville, TN

    Dealer Review:

    Finished my chapter 13 bankruptcy saw the Kia add on tv, called explained was turned down for buying a couch, did not understand since I owe no one, I told him I wanted to see if my credit would check out there,he took my information and in less than five minutes he was back and said I was approved and was I dressed, I said no. He said he would be sending a car for me. The car came I was told it was the one I was purchasing, we drove on the interstate and I felt uncomfortable in the ride (it felt light) I was there for hours, never test drove the car, it was dark I couldn’t really see it, but signed all the papers hurriedly pushed at me. The only reason I was unable to take the car home with me, we could not get insurance that night and I wanted insurance with my old insurance company. I got home with all my paper to read 2013 verse financed at 10,809.69 for 66 months with a total sale 806 down leaving me a total owe 19,943.36 the following morning I called universal Kia and stated I no longer wanted the car, they said the car no longer belonged to them I owned it, I said I did not want it, they said they would bring the car to me I said I will not accept it. later that day the manager Mo called and said he wood only require $500 down and I could get another car, I felt I had no choice, he sent a car for me and showed where the check went through I stated I had stopped payment on that check, Amy came to discuss my options for another car $800. more and I could get a 2011 Kia Soul I said impossible I could not get that amount of money the only other option for me was the 2011 Dodge Caliber I said okay I’ll take the dodge with the $500 down. the papers are flying again and I’m signing away. This dodge costing the same as the other car monthly payments from 289, to 301 a month. Dark again outside mgr Mo said let’s go test drive your car by the way it has a small stretch. We walk out the door I said some stretch, he said nothing, I drove the car around the block crying quietly as I was driving. The car had been wrecked on the passages side. Went out the next morning to look at the car and it was rusty where it had been wrecked. Someone these Kia people already knew was on a limited budget could not afford a thousand dollar deductible to fix that car. I’m ashamed to drive it or talk about to my family. So unhappy how I was treated.

    Kia of Murfreesboro - Murfreesboro / Tennessee

    Located 33 miles away from Nashville, TN

    Dealer Review:

    I had a great experience pulling up to the Kia of Murfreesboro dealership yesterday! Normally, I as a woman would never step foot on a car dealership alone. I would always take a male family member or friend with me. From past experience, car salesmen would always be pushy and would try and talk you into something you weren’t even wanting. But that’s not the case with Kia of Murfreesboro. The staff greeted me with a warm welcome. Travis Fiveagh was my salesman and he was personable, professional, and he made sure I drove away with exactly what I wanted and needed. I don’t have the best of credit, in fact, it was pretty challenging considering I’m currently in a chapter 13. But, this didn’t stop Greg Fondren! He fought for me with the banks because He understood my situation and wanted to help me! Even the owner Martin Herr fought for me and I drove away a very grateful and happy customer! I would recommend KIA of Murfreesboro to anyone! They treated me with kindness and respect! They were all wonderful! 😁

Vehicle = OK, KIA Service = BUST
Andrew,08/20/2016
EDIT: Kia wants my unbiased review? Well, lets just say Kia's customer service won't support you at all. I had an issue with a faulty gas tank latch. It is a new design where you push in on the fuel door and it locks into place, and to open it you also push in, and a spring pops the door out - don't know of a better way to describe it. I don't get why other designs needed to be replaced with this, or the fact that since it doesn't lock anymore anyway, why does it need a latch in the first place...but on to the story. Incidentally I also had a problem with the A/C completely freezing up and the vehicle needing to be reprogrammed, which of course ALSO happened while I was on the road but back to the point at hand. 6AM. Cold, dark fall morning. Getting fuel to go to an appointment out of town - medical specialist appointment. I pull in and try to open the fuel door. Won't budge. Repeated attempts - won't budge. Pushing on it much harder - nothing. It is not frozen because I have a temp.-controlled garage. I am now stranded at this station because no one can get the door open to fuel the vehicle and I do not have enough fuel to reach my destination. If I cancel this appointment I am still billed several hundred $ and the medical condition is not trivial. I have to get there. The cheap design and cheap little plastic spring mechanism in the fuel door latch has broken and jammed the door shut. After a few more minutes, I remember that it is plastic and decide I can get the door open and replace the little plastic part later. I eventually get the jammed/defective plastic part to snap, which allows me to open the fuel door but in doing so, I put a small scratch in the paint around the fuel door. No big deal, I am sure Kia will help me with this. Total cost estimate for the scratch = $125. My appointment would have been much more expensive to cancel. Later that morning I call Kia, because of course they are not open at 6AM. Why did I not call Kia Roadside? 2 reasons. 1) The service station mechanic who helped me with the latch tells me they are going to have to pry it open anyway and 2) I would have had to wait for them to show up, which means I would have missed the appointment regardless. Everyone there agrees with just getting it open and it makes sense to deal with it later. I call Kia. Kia tells me that since I didn't let them handle it, they wouldn't assist me at all with the claim and basically refused to talk to me. They accused me of deliberately damaging my new car. I ask them if their part could have had anything to do with it and they of course refused to even send someone to look. I have taken it to both a body shop and the local Kia dealer. Both places, I was told "Why is Kia not taking care of this for you?" I could only shrug. Here's the thing - I don't even want the fuel latch replaced. I want it left "broken" because now the door actually works as it should. I don't want another cheap plastic part put in there just so it can jam shut on me again. So all we are talking about is the scratch. I asked more than one Kia rep. what the procedure is for opening a stuck fuel door, knowing full well there isn't one and everyone knows they were going to have to pry the fuel door open. They would have had no other choice and they know it. The dealer pretty much confirmed that too. The rep. on the phone didn't want to answer. Of course they know their part failed but won't pony up $125 to help out a customer with their brand new vehicle. How cheap can you be, Kia? My experience with this vehicle has been overall fairly good until this point but now I will never buy another Kia. So guess what, Kia? I am paying $125 for this repair. You are losing my future business. We were thinking of replacing my wife's Escape with another Kia but now that won't be happening, either. A friend of mine who is replacing her vehicle asked me how I like my Kia and that she might get one. Not anymore. I wonder how many people I can convince to change their minds. I hope the $125 was worth the several thousand $ this will cost your company.
