The sales team at Pensacola Kia Autosport was very nice. The problem is how they did business. I was looking at a Kia Soul Plus. The advertised price is not what you can buy the vehicle for. Pensacola Autosport adds $4000 .....yes $4000 to the MSRP. I have never seen anything like this. Then they told me they could give me $4000 on my trade. My trade was worth probably around $1200-$1500. So if you add $4000 then take off $4000 for my trade i just bought a vehicle full price and you got my trade for free. The model I was looking at was the 2011 Kia Soul Plus manual transmission. After they ran the numbers on the vehicle with an MSRP of $15495 it came out to well over $19000. Needless to say I was upset at the games. I left that day and called other local dealerships. I was surprised to find that there were some other dealerships that played this same game. I then called Team Gunther Kia in Daphne, AL. I spoke with Jason Bradley and told him about the price we got in Pensacola. He told me to come over and they would take care of me. I know thats what they all say but Jason was not lying about it. At Team Gunther Kia I was immediately welcomed by Brian Williams. He was very polite and very helpful. At no time was he pushy or rude. I never felt pressured to by. Jason was out for a few minutes sow Brian showed us around and showed myself and my wife a few different souls. Jason arrived shortly after and he provided the same service. Friendly, respectful, and laid back. Team Gunther Kia lets their business ethics and buying experience speak for itself. I found a 2011 Kia in the Ignition color. We liked the vehicle but it had the $500 speaker upgrade, $250 Homelink mirror upgrade, and a few other upgrades that I wasn't really looking for. Brian and Jason said they would work on the numbers and see what they could do. They ended up coming out $14200 with my trade and down payment out the door. $14200!!! For a vehicle with an automatic and all the extra upgrades! $5000 less than Pensacola Kia Autosport for a better model! No games. No BS. Killer service. It was the most pleasant buying experiences I have ever had. I always dread looking for new cars but Team Gunther Kia was a breath of fresh air. Our Soul is awesome. If you are looking for a Kia go to Team Gunther Kia and tell Jason will take care of you. If anyone has any questions about my experience they can email me at email@example.com and I would be glad to share any info I could to help out. (I know this was long but its rare I have been this satisfied with a car dealer...And no I don't work for them.) - Josh Tucker
We were interested in test driving a new KIA Optima after seeing one. The folks at Team Gunther were very accommodating to our schedule and sales rep, Bill Buckley, was particularly helpful. We have purchased several new vehicles over the past 20 years and we have never had such a delightful buying experience. Mr. Buckley understood our interests and we never felt pressured by anyone in the sales department. The owner, Josh Gunther, explained our trade in value in great detail and made every effort to present us with the best possible deal. We could not help but notice the respect the Team Gunther staff demonstrated toward Josh and his wife, Ashley, during the time we spent at the dealership. We have been driving the Optima for several months and are absolutely THRILLED with the performance of the vehicle. We would also like to commend the service department who handled our first oil change. We strongly recommend Team Gunther KIA and in particular, the KIA Optima!
First Class Amazing Service & An Easy Process. We had been shopping other dealers for a new 2012 Kia Rio and had trouble getting the price we needed and the car we wanted. Maxwell, Haley, & Tommy Sims got us the 2012 Rio at a more than reasonable price and made the entire purchase very simple & easy. My wife and I will be servicing at Team Gunther Kia and suggest you to check them out. Our salemen Maxwell made us laugh, made sure everything was right, and worked hard for us today. Liked: Disliked:
