"Service Experience "

- Customer

My Toyota Highlander was fixed to the best of my satisfaction by this dealership service department. I am especially thankful to Alan Lal the service coordinator to take the time to understand the issue thoroughly and then resolving it to the best of my satisfaction and providing me with a courtesy car while my car was being serviced. Very Satisfied customer.

Sounds like we earned this 5 star review. I recall messaging with you and it was a refreshing pleasure to deal with a client like yourself. Sir you have a ton of class and we respect you for it.

"terrible online booking"

- Jacky

Recently I have booked a time online for my car service and part repair. To ensure that the part will be delivered and ready to the shop by then, I also called the service department to confirm the time. Everything looks good until the late afternoon next day. I received an email, notifying my schedule will be removed since there was somebody else also booking the same time. How terrible it is!!!! It screwed up my planning on that day. My suggestion is NEVER booking online, better calling the service guy to make one.

"Truly Happy"

- KD

I normally don't write reviews but in this case I wanted to share my experience. I'm truly happy that I bought my Kia Soul from the Richmond location as the service is absolutely outstanding. From the reception that answers the phone when I make an appointment my service representative Gil my experience from beginning to end is always a 5 star.

"Great Management(General Manager), just a few bad employees"

- RegularJoe

Originally I had a great experience at Kia Richmond, the previous service advisors were exceptionally great, including (Katherine) and Tony Ma, Both took the time to address my concerns and were very patient Had great customer service experience, only until I had to deal with Gil Laureano, Gil often lied to me about the actual cost of warranty covered repairs, often exaggerating repairs by multiples, example: "ball joint repair, was quoted almost $300 to warranty" used this as an excuse to upsell me brake pads and brake rotors/ transmission flush/ and recommended me to buy new 4 set of wheels due to my low traction, which was false. Did not address my concern about inaccurate steering and torn ball joint, both of which were a huge safety concern for me and my family. Brought my car in for these safety concerns and everytime he would try to upsell me something or charge me for work that needed to be done, such as a wheel alignment, which was done 2 months prior. ALBEIT all this bad experience with this service advisor Gil Laureno, The General Manager Tom Richardson was exceptional in his decisions to turn this matter into a better one. He resolved this situation for my safety concerns effectively and easily, saving me time and a headache, I applaud the great work of the General Manager Tom Richardson,

"Bad inhouse service "

- tommy

I bought my 2014 Kia soul for sevice 2 mth ago, after the service i found they made my 4 tires pressure more than 50 psi, normally tire pressure should be around 33 ~ 35 psi. I sent so many email to Kia Richmond dealership and Kia canada and Kia Korea. But nobody reply my email and complain. So diaappointed. Waste money for the inhouse service!

"Best service ever."

- Leigh

Phoned the Service Department late Saturday afternoon to ask for help with a shattered driver's window. Was informed by Harry that if we could get there before 6 pm he could help us out by putting the 2015 Kia Soul in their shop over the weekend to protect it and would arrange for a loaner. I should mention, it was raining heavily? We mentioned it would be impossible to make it in time so he offered his personal cellular number. and said to call him at home and he would meet us at the Service Centre on Sunday even though it was closed and it was his day off. We called Sunday noon, he met us and made arrangements for the car to be repaired on Monday and gave us a choice of loaner to use. When we mentioned there were a couple of little scratches here and there and we needed a little touch-up paint bottle he offered to do it for us. He was more than accommodating and most affable. What a great ambassador for this dealership and brand. I'd buy my next vehicle and definitely will get all my service work done at Richmond Kia. Thank you Harry.

"Service Dept Experience"

- Kia Owner

Just a heads up that free oil changes offered by the Richmond Kia during purchase is not free. We purchased a new vehicle in Sept of 2013. The first time was no problem using the free oil change by itself. When I made an appointment and told the receptionist that I just wanted an oil change in Nov 2015, it seemed fine. But after the service they wanted to charge me for their Service #1 package which included work that I didn't need or authorized (check head lights, check wipers, check signal lights, check air filters etc.) in addition to the oil change. After a discussion and explanation what I asked for when I made the appointment, he reluctantly removed the charges and rudely told me that I have to pay next time and cannot have the oil change by itself. Part of the reason he gave in was because there was a very upset customer waiting for him to find his car. Apparently this guy waited 3 hours to have his snow tires changed (even with an appointment) and now they can't find his car. How do you lose a car at a small dealership? So just a heads up for all of you that are going to Richmond Kia Service and think you may have a free oil change....you can't have this by itself anymore! If you are negotiating a deal make sure you have this clearly written in your contract. You may want to check with other Kia dealers. By the way, Vancouver and Richmond Kia are associated.
