Kia Wants to Rewrite the Contract

I purchased a new 2018 Cadenza in mid-January of this year. I went back and forth with the salesman and told him what I would buy it for. I had done my homework. The salesman and I arrived at a satisfactory number. The only incentive I received was 0% for 66 months. Fast forward to this week, nearly three months after the purchase. I received a phone call from the dealer asking me to come in and work something out with them. They claim I received both a rebate and the financing. I could only receive one, not both. That was news to me. A rebate was never mentioned prior to this. It was a $5000 error that he admitted was his mistake. I told him that I would not be coming in to "work something out". Again this is happening 3 months after the purchase and after two car payments made. Just another reason to dislike car salesmen and dealerships.

I think the dealer is in a bind and a signed contract is binding and somebody at the dealership will be fired.

Your Headline is "Kia Wants to Rewrite the Contract". Why ate you blaming KIA? It is the dealer that is requesting this, so you should name the dealer & not KIA.

I'm blaming Kia because it is a KIA dealership. At this time I will NOT be naming the specific dealership. I'm sure that they have more pleased customers than unhappy. They screwed up my deal and now they have to suffer the consequences. Why trash them? If you really need to know the name of the dealership, PM me.

Kia had nothing to do with your contact being screwed up it was the dealer and the dealers are independently owned and you got the $5000 rebate and 0% interest so be happy with what you got along with getting a few people fired that should make you feel great! so whats your beef you screwed them.

That dealership wouldn't be getting anything back from me.

I think @kwas156 is taking a level headed approach by not smearing the dealership.

It will be interesting to see how this finishes up.
Car dealers own the local and state governments due to sales taxes and bargains offered to important people.

You might want to read up on the antics of long time dealer with many stores: Bill Heard.
Finally put out of business after many years.

Changing contracts was something they did often. They were also the major daily source of calls to 911, kept losing customer keys during the trade-in evaluation.
