I had a great car buying experience due in no small part to salesperson Adam Harrel.He was polite, professional, & most importantly extremely knowledgeable of product. I especially appreciate that he was "no schmoozy salesman", it was just the facts from him! It was the most pleasant car buying experience I've ever had!! I feel like I got just the right car for me!

My financial situation was ideal but this purchase was during the 2020 model changeover and there was only one 2020 model in the area that I wanted. The salesman was very helpful with obtaining that car immediately and delivering it to me as soon as possible.

First time purchasing from Auffenberg Kia and Tami Wilde was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable when it came to answering questions about my new 2021 Kia Forte! She even knew things I wasn't even aware of and gave every answer with great detail with no confusion! She went out of her way to help me and my wife and make sure we had the best deal possible! All the staff there were extremely friendly and they all made us feel welcome! Thank you Tami and all the staff at Auffenberg Kia. You have a future returning customer!

Knowledgeable and friendly. Solid communication. I don’t see the need for a twenty five word minimum response here. You want to rethink this survey method.

I get a call from my daughter, she has a flat tire. No biggie, she pulls into St. Clair Mall to change it. A short moment later she realizes she's missing a part she needs. So, I call Mark hoping he'd at least be able to walk me through what was needed. After about 2 minutes on the phone he goes, "You know what, I'm just going to head over and see for myself." Within 25 minutes of my initial call to him my daughter's spare was on and she was safely back on the road. ***...

I had my 2014 Kia Sportage serviced back in October and I was eager to leave a positive review on their customer satisfaction survey, but I never saw it in my e-mail. We had purchased the used vehicle from Auffenberg Ford and there was a squeaking noise inaudible during the test drive. I brought it up to the Ford dealer after purchase and they said tough luck, so I took it to Kia and the service rep was kind and professional. The mechanic who serviced my car had 17 years experience and had seen my issue once before. Once he fixed it ...

Cory was the best! Best experience I've had in purchasing a new car (which I do frequently) He was very friendly and easy to talk to. I actually had fun there during everything. He made sure I left happy and with a smile. Definitely will recommend this place and Cory without a doubt! Love my new Sorento and if I ever decide on a new car again I'm headed to OFallon, which is an hour from my house, but worth the drive 🙂

My salesman, Cory Stowe was great!! My husband and I showed up on a Saturday afternoon to look at cars, specially a Kia optima. However once I saw the Kia sorento, I was hooked on that one.

We drove home that evening in a brand new sorento! I never felt pressured at all. Cory took his time with us. He showed us how to work ...

My wife and I have each bought new cars at least 10 times in the past 20 years, and I have always absolutely dreaded dealing with salesmen and car dealerships ... until I worked with Ted Collier at Auffenberg Kia (Sorry, I may have misspelled his name). This was my first enjoyable car-buying experience. From start to finish, the experience was awesome. I can't imagine it being any better. No pressure, answered all my questions, didn't try to over-impress me or badmouth competing dealerships or vehicles; the list goes on. The only bad part of my experience is, the next time ...

Greg and David were both very friendly and cooperative. We test drove three different vehicles and on the day of our purchase test drove the Sportage one more time. Greg and Dave were very helpful finding the vehicles we want to test drive but need to be more familiar with the vehicles options. When asked about the Ionizing Air Filter on the Sportage neither knew of its existance and neither could tell us if the EX was equipped with heated sideview mirrors. We used USAA car buying service and there was no hesitation on accepting that price on the part ...

The sales person and car price were both okay, but the gas tank was not filled when car was picked up. Also there were numerous closing fees, like a $200 fee to transfer car plates, and $200 to complete sales transaction. I will not buy a car from this dealer again.

I was very disappointed in this dealer's aggressive attempts to add on multiple extra-cost items above an agreed upon price quote. Auffenberg Kia offered an outstanding price quote in response to an online new car pricing service query. In light of their superior price quote, I planned to purchase their vehicle. Upon working final sales paperwork with the dealer salesman, I noticed a $690 paint protection package slipped into the draft sales agreement. That package was not in the price quote nor was it advertised or annotated anywhere on the car sticker. I refused to pay for that plan and ...

Auffenberg Kia made it completely painless to purchase a new vehicle. After test driving the vehicle that I had found on their internet site, I was expecting a long, painful, protracted process to attempt to make a purchase. The negotiation process took all of about three minutes. We reached a settlement that everyone could live with. I took the car home last night and finished up the paperwork this morning. Compared to another dealer that I had attempted to purchase from several weeks ago, this was a breeze. That one took 4 days and resulted in me walking out, probably to ...

The salesperson, Shane Roemer, was very friendly (not pushy and sneaky - like alot of salesman)and was very easy to work with. The Sales Mgr., Mike Parsons, was straight forward when dealing with my offer prices. He didn't pull that old ploy "I need a check to show him that I was interested in buying a car and then at the end of the deal process stop the deal and ask for additional money"!!! I hate this tactic!!!!!!!!!!! The Finance Mgr, Shawn McCarty, was very helpful to me when reviewing the additional option pricing and information.

My family (father and daughter included) have purchased seven (7) vehicles with Auffenberg and have felt that we have received reasonable offers over the years. We understand that the offers were not the absolute best, but we have gained experience and knowledge after each purchase. If there is a concern, it involves the reluctance of the staff to provide the "true" cost of the vehicle borne by the dealer. The invoice price they offer is not the invoice that is such a heavily guarded secret. It is disingenuous to state that the lowest price that can be offered is ...
