I had an unexpected family emergency yesterday and was in desperate need of a new car. Mi chose Kia because of their warranty and great ratings online. I had some challenged credit, due to a layoff a few years ago. I needed a new car with no money down and I needed it now. Tim Cousins was my sales rep. I explained my situation and he went right to work for me. Within an hour or so he called me and said come and get my new car. They got me financed, found the car I wanted, and had it delivered to the dealership within 24 hours. Now I know that this may be normal things that they do for everyone, but you know it made my day and it helped my family out tremendously. The finance manager was excellent. Went over eventing in detail and ensured that I knew what the rates were on the loan. It was a high interest rate, as expected, but they still got me a loaded Kia Rio5, 2012, and payments in my price range. The finance manger also showed me how to get the interest down on the loan in February when I get my annual bonus. With this information I can lower my payment by almost $200 and drop my interest over 10 pts. The team here is excellent and I will do business with them again, and I highly recommend that you do the same. Chris Lowe - new Kia owner
I recently purchased a new FJ Cruiser from Jim Barkley Toyota. I have wanted a FJ Cruiser for some time and had my eye on the exact one I purchased for a while. In purchasing the Cruiser, I felt that I received a fair trade in value for my Tundra and paid a fair price for the FJ. It was what i expected because I had purchased my used Sequoia from this dealership last year. They gave me a fair trade price and purchase price then and I feel like they did so again on my recent purchase of the FJ. Everyone in the new car department was very helpful and friendly. Lori sold me the FJ and was great to deal with. The finance person Kathy was very friendly and explained all of the paperwork to me. One of the other sales managers Eric took time to show me how how everything worked on the FJ because Lori was tied up with another client. It seems to me that the staff at this dealership work very well together as a team. I would recommend this dealership because of the great experience I had there.
As a longtime customer of Leonard’s Auto Mart I finally decided to write a review of what I consider to be the best auto dealership in WNC. Over the past 7 years I have purchased a total of 5 vehicles for personal use and for business use from Leonard’s. On each transaction, my experience as a buyer was exceptional. Leonard’s always catered my purchase to my individual needs and my business needs. As a family owned business, they have shown the flexibility I need in my purchases. I have always felt they knew me as an individual and that making me happy as a buyer was important to them. Buying a used car can so often be an unpleasant event but Leonard’s makes it easy. The cars I have purchased from them have been quality vehicles and the deals I have made with them have all been of good value. If you are looking for a vehicle make the drive to Smokey Park Highway and check out Leonard’s Auto Mart. They are not at all your typical used car dealership.
