I WENT TO KIA DEALER SHIP IN FRANKLIN,TN TO LOOK AT THE NEW 2012 OPTIMA.MY SALEMAN WAS SKIP, HE WAS VERY NICE, BUT I HAD A HORRABLE EXPERENCE I WOULD NEVER BUY ANOTHER CAR FROM KIA...

DONT BELIEVE THE TV ADDS $ 199 DOWN AND PAYMENT OF $199 A MONTH ITS ALL LIES... AFTER SIGNING A CONTRACT IN MAY I WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THE CAR WAS MINE, UNTIL MY TAGS RAN OUT AND I HAD TO CALL TIM BELONCO TO SEE WHERE MY TAGS WERE AT HE THEN EXPLAINED THAT I WAS NOT FINANCED DUE TO THE FACT THEY FORGOT TO TURN IN ALL MY PAPER WORK TO THE FINANCE COMPANY AND THAT THE ORGINAL CONTRACT HAD EXPIRED. TIM SENT ME ANOTHER DRIVE OUT TAG THE NEXT DAY AND STATED I WOULD BE ASK TO COME BACK IN AND RESIGN ANOTHER CONTRACT BECAUSE THE FIRST ONE WAS VOIDED.. AFTER THREE MONTHS OF DRIVING THE CAR I FINALLY WENT IN TO RESIGN A CONTRACT.

THEY HAD WENT UP IN A PAYMENT THAT WAS TO MUCH TO TELL ABOUT "AROUND"

$700.00 A MONTH! AND INCREASED MY FINANCE RATE ALMOST TRIPLE.. THATS CRAZY.. OH AND BY THE WAY I HAD PUT A DOWN PAYMENT OF $2000.00 DOWN AND WAS TOLD THAT THEY WOULD HOLD FOR 1MONTH AND THEY TRIED TO RUN IT THROUGH MY BANK EARLY CAUSEING MORE FEE'S..

BUT I WILL SAY PLEASE READ WHAT YOU ARE SIGNING BEFORE YOU BUY IT.. THE CONTRACT PAPERWORK STATES" IF YOU WERE NOT TO GET FINANCED YOU WILL RESONABLE FOR ANY MILES OR OTHER REPAIRS AND YOU WILL NOT GET YOUR DOWN PAYMENT/TRADE IN BACK YOU WILL BE BILLED $.45 FOR EVERY MILE THAT WAS PUT ON A NEW CAR.. THINGS THE BUYER SHOULD KNOW BEFORE SIGNING A CONTRACT..

WHEN YOU SIGN A CONTRACT AND DRIVE AWAY IN A NEW CAR YOU THINK THINGS ARE FINAL BUT THAT MAY NOT BE SO I'M A FINE EXAMPLE OF THAT...SO BUYERS JUST THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE SIGNING BEFORE YOU SIGN...

Had an Experience with Franklin Kia?

Terrible they don't honor their commitments all they care about is selling you a car after they are nothing to them! If a company does not care about keeping their customers then you should never be a customer there....

sounds like your credit sucks, and they did you a favor and got the car financed miraculously for you. TV adds were for lease, which you obviously cannot qualify for with a payment like that (assuming you got the base model, and if you got a loaded one, of course its not going to be $199/month, common sense). Here's a brilliant idea, if they say the paperwork is not completed but allow you to take the car, and you don't have the necessary paperwork, politely turn them down, and come back the next day with what you need, especially if your credit sucks.
