Austin >Auto Dealers > South POint Kia
1 star for a great car. -2 for Arik who admitted he basically ripped us off by giving us a different car than we agreed on then trying to "make up for it" with free oil changes, -2 for the manager who also agreed Arik deceived us but completely lied to us pretending to be on our side. I love my Kia, but I will never buy from them again, and I have and will continue to tell ppl about the shadyness there. Good thing people trust me...why? Because I don't lie and deceive people. Take note south point KIA and Arik! You've lost a long time customer and more for the people I've steered away.
No Haggling Needed. After a terrible experience at Capitol Kia on 183, I was without a car for 4 days. I was really stressed about having to start the whole process over again. I took some time to read the reviews about the other Kia dealership in Austin, South Point Kia. I saw that Shawn Hamze had great reviews overall and decided to email him before wasting any time on the lot. I told him exactly what car I wanted and exactly what I wanted to pay per month for "x" amount of months. The price per month that I requested was the same price I had asked the finance guy at Capitol Kia for…at Capitol Kia the finance guy told us that he would “loose his job if he offered that price”. Somehow magically, Shawn was able to offer us that price and he was able to do it without any haggling or “stepping out to talk to the manager” and he still has his job. Wow…it’s a miracle. Shawn responded to my email within 30 minutes, assured me he could meet our needs and started the financing paperwork over the phone so that we wouldn’t waste time at the dealership. Shawn never tried to sale me on a different car or different product. He never tried to sale me a lease instead of a finance contract. He quickly made my wishes into a reality and was very laid back the entire time we were meeting with him. He gave me a brand new car that had just been unwrapped from the factory with 4 miles on it. He had it detailed and filled it up with gas. It’s a black 2011 Kia Sorento LX and it is beautiful. While waiting for the financing guy to be freed up he took the time to walk through all of the warranty info and car info. The financing guy did not pull any tricks during our time with him. He filled out the contract exactly as Shawn had said it would be filled out which was a new experience for us. At capitol Kia the salesperson would promise things would go down one way in financing and the financing guy would come up with paperwork that was nothing like the salesperson promised so you would have to start all over again. We were so relieved when everything went easily in financing. South Point Kia was not pushy, the transaction went smoothly and they showed us how buying a new car is supposed to go. My husband and I were very happy with our entire experience at South Point Kia and specifically with Shawn Hamze as our salesperson. I highly recommend that you give Shawn a try, especially if you are walking away from a bad Capitol Kia 183 experience. If you want a no-haggling, drama free, mistake free, stress free car buying experience make the drive to South Point Kia or just email Shawn at sh102070@yahoo to see what he can do for you.
Renee' And South Point. This is the 1st vehicle I have purchased from Renee and South Point. I have never had good sales service, and I absolutely appreciate Renee and South Point for everything. Renee treated me with respect and took care of all details of finding me a vehicle that I wanted and worked expertly through the entire process.
South Point (Renee). We knew what we were looking for and Renee at South Point had what we wanted. The salesperson and the whole staff was very courteous. They left us to talk between ourselves and when there was a difference in what we thought the car was worth and what they were offering they were very accommodating in getting us the price we were after.
