Tonight Allison and I went to test drive some cars over at the Kia dealership. My lease is up June 1 and it was time to get a new lease. This time the new car goes to Allison. I will take her current car as my own until we pay that off and then we will look at a lease for me. I’ll probably want another Kia Forte since that was a solid reliable car that I enjoyed driving. Allison had wanted a Kia Sorento but it is outside of our price range. So, we checked out the Kia Sportage instead. The car is comparable to her current ride and she liked it. I was planning on coming back the next day to do all the paperwork and turn in my car but we were able to take the test drive and work the deal all in an hour and a half. It was the shortest time I’d ever spent there. I go back tomorrow to pick it up. We made a quick video outside the dealership before we went home.

Almost 3 years ago now I drove my 2002 Honda Civic in to Courtesy Kia to lease a new car. What followed was a pretty trying ordeal. My salesperson was terrible and I did a whole heck of a lot of waiting around. I probably could have walked out but I liked the car so I stayed. For the past three years I drove that car and enjoyed almost everything about the car except for the the fact that in 2015 cars were still being made with manual key locks. The car I traded in had remote keyless entry and that one was 12 years old. The reason I didn’t even know that the car didn’t have remote keyless entry is that I never got the keys in my hand until the day I signed the papers. I was dumbstruck when I got the keys.

From there I called to complain about my service and the sales department in general. The general manager called me and we were going to install remote keyless entry and remote start. However, after that call we never heard back from him and that never happened. Continue reading I’m a Kia Forte Driver for Another Three Years
