Simply one heck of a value for the money.
I was looking at 2012 to 2015 Highlanders. All had 60k to 80k miles. Lucky to even find an AWD for under $25k. All were out of warranty. All had scratches... dings... and touch up paint up the gazoo. Nobody wanted to talk extended warranty up front stressing that was the “back end” job of finance. The sales reps knew nothing about them other than making the sale and getting their commission.
I started looking at Kia Sorentos out of curiosity. Saw 2017 Kia Sorento LX CPO’s with V6 and AWD on cargurus.com with less than 15k miles selling for around $21k with years of factory comprehensive and powertrain warranty left. I made an appointment with the local Kia dealership simply out of curiosity. The sales rep knew everything about the Sorento. Spent 30 minutes just explaining the basic features. I drove it and was 100% impressed. I negotiated in probably the least pressure setting I’ve ever bought a vehicle in. The entire buying process was near perfect and I got a 2017 Sorento CPO V6 AWD with 11k miles for below market value due to an unbelievable trade offer. Everything just came together buying it from the local dealer at an awesome price I never actually thought they would agree to.
I never pictured myself buying a Kia. The dealership TV commercials were “corny” and it was hard to take them serious... but after walking in and experiencing them in person I was thoroughly impressed and had no problems making the decision.
A big “shout out” to Roper Kia in Joplin, MO for just an awesome buying experience. They know how to welcome folks into the Kia family!
