This dealership is willing to risk your safety and possibly your life. Do not trust anything any of the Sales people, the Sales Manager, or the General Manager say. Do your due diligence plus more if you ever think about buying a vehicle there. I'm not even sure dishonest is a strong enough term to use in describing the business ethics and actions of this dealer
I could post the whole litany of events, but, in summary, we purchased a used Kia Sorrento from this dealer. When we purchased the vehicle they confirmed a full service and safety inspection was done on the vehicle prior to us purchasing, and even provided a copy of the report. Turns out they didn't feel it necessary to disclose or mention there was a serious engine failure recall that they had not performed the service on. The actual recall notice states that this engine failure could cause a serious accident. The car was purchased for use commuting daily during rush hour on Highway 1 in the Lower Mainland BC. We purchased this vehicle as my wife wanted a larger vehicle for increased safety. This dealer was willing to sell a vehicle, not disclose a significant issue that could have caused a serious accident and put lives (ours and other drivers on the road) at significant risk. Do not trust this dealer or anything they say. They do not disclose all relevant information. In fact, the engine did seize 5 months after we purchased while driving on the freeway. When we went back to the dealer for a discussion on what they could do for us, the General Manager (Peter) denied any responsibility for the issue, and stated there was nothing he, or the dealership could, or would do. Thankfully Kia Canada is recognizing its responsibility and having the engine replaced.
I can only say. All is "NOT" good at Applewood. They are, in my opinion, essentially a dishonest car dealer, and its things like this that give all car dealers such as bad name. They deserve to be tagged with the description "Typical Used Car Salesman".
I would not even give them one star as a rating, except its the lowest that can be given.
Thanks Applewood Kia for almost causing my wife to be in a serious accident doing 100km per hour on the freeway. I'm happy to know you feel profit comes before peoples safety.
