Unprofessional and unorganized

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Customer service is a joke here from sales to finance to service to collision center(paint). Better off going to Lokey Kia in Palm Harbor. They are disorganized and unprofessional. Takes 2.5 months or more still waiting for a door handle that is in stock to go to paint and not get painted. To be put on service tech desk to install an unpainted handle that was scheduled. Still unfixed hopefully will be fixed by Christmas at this point. The lady receptionist says. "Oh your key fob doesn't work" so i should have said " if my air doesn't work i should just roll down my windows" THAT DOESN'T FIX THE PROBLEM.

.We dropped off our car at Crown Kia on November 18th because the service light was on then we found out that the problem with the car was the transmission they had to order at part coming from Crystal River Florida the car would be ready on Wed 11/23, on 11/25 after many's calls to Crown Kia with no answers we go up to Kia just to find out car will not be ready until Monday. We are visiting St Petersburg from Fargo ND. So we have to extend our hotel and rental car reservation until Monday. On Monday we go to Kia just to be told maybe the will be ready by Tuesday noon. This is really getting to be a problem on our finance and with our jobs. Crown Kia have had our car for ten days and we still don't know when our car will be ready. No one at Kia seems to care about our inconvince. We deal with Kia in Fargo ND and have never experienced so much unprofession.

Horribly mistreated with verbal abuse and threats

Recently, I had a very disturbing experience with the service manager, Richard Snyder in Crown Service Department. Here is my story of how badly I was treated by this man with verbal abuse, threatening, blaming, and accusation. I made my appointment for oil change at 10am on Saturday. I arrived at Crown 15 minutes later in hurry. A man was standing outside at my arrival. Because I was late, I asked him whether I can check in, but he ignored my question and drove my car off to service entrance. At that time, I saw no other car inside the service building. Thus, I thought that he was going to do oil change within a normal time frame. While I was sitting in waiting room, I realized that my waiting was unusually too long. I returned to the office several times, but I could not find anyone in the office. While waiting for almost TWO HOURS, no employee came to tell me what was going on. At around 11:45am, I returned again to the office, and finally found the man who checked me in, sitting in the office. I asked him what was going on and why it took so long. He rudely blurted out "because you were late for 20 minutes.” (In fact, I was 15 minutes late, not 20 minutes). He said that he would check me out after he took care of another customer. I returned to waiting room and waited again. He did not come to waiting room to get me, and so I went back to the office. I said to him ‘if I arrived too late, you should have let me know that I should rescheduled it at the beginning. He suddenly stood up and screamed at me “Don’t yell at me” “You sit down.” I was totally shocked and dumbfounded. My voice usually has a volume, and, of course, I was not happy about the way I was treated. However, I did not mean to yell at him. In reaction to his angry verbal attack, I yelled back at him "how could you treat a customer like this?” “HOW COULD YOU TAKE TWO HOURS FOR OIL CHANGE, WITHOUT ANYBODY TELLING ME WHY?” He kept blaming that the delay was caused by my late arrival, and screamed at me over and over again “Don’t yell at me,” “Sit down,” “I am going to call police,” and so on. In the midst of heated argument, I told that I wanted to talk with the manager, but he again shouted down on me “I am the manager.” I asked again “I want to talk with his boss,” but he said in yelling, “My boss is not available now.” At the end, I said, “I won’t come back again for another service.” He shouted, “WE DON’T WANT YOU TO COME BACK.” He never said a word ‘sorry.’ He treated me as if I did something terribly wrong. He was so good at blaming and accusing the other party about something he entirely did wrong. He obviously tried to overpower me by yelling and threatening in attempt to escape from his own responsibility and wrong doing. I left his office in so much anger that I said ‘SOB.’ Now looking back, he was not worthwhile for me to put such words in my mouth. I wish I just walked away from this SICK man. In summary, I would like to point out the following: 1. Mr. Snyder said nothing about the problem due to my 15-minutes late arrival, when I asked whether I should reschedule it. 2. For almost two hours of waiting, nobody came in and explained to me why the service was being delayed. 3. Mr. Snyder entirely blamed on my late arrival. He never said a word ‘sorry.’ 4. Not only BLAMING, he also ACCUSED me of yelling, despite he started yelling first. 5. Is the manager supposed to be a model to other employees whom he supervises? I was more disturbed by the fact that Mr. Snyder is in charge of customer services. 6. I felt that I was mistreated more badly by Mr. Snyder, perhaps because I am an Asian woman. I wonder whether he could treat a customer of majority race in such horrible way. Thanks for reading my letter. ?
