Capital/Capitol Kia / Bad Salesmen
Salesman tried to force the deal on my daughter while I was outside on the phone, telling her "She needed to get rid of me" and that I was "going to blow the deal for her". She is 18. He said she "NEEDED THIS DEAL" and that I was just in the way. He even went as far as to bring out papers for her to sign. I was only on the phone for 5 minutes. She had no credit and I was going to have to sign the papers anyway. Her boyfriend came out and told me the salesman had papers to sign. My daughter said he totally changed his attitude when I came back in. We had not even agreed on a price yet. They consistantly tried to make us pay for more than the amount we told them was our max dollar amount we wanted for a car. As were leaving the sales manager then tried to stron arm us into taking the deal, saying it was only good right then and he would not honor it later. He also said their rate was going to beat my credit unions. Even though he knew I worked at the credit union, he tried to tell me that there was no way I was going to get the low rate my credit union was offering due to government regulations. Whatever those were. He also said that if I tried for a used card the rate would double. Our credit union offers the same low rate for used cars as for new cars. He said "I am a card carrier of you credit union too and I know what I am talking about." I told him I worked there and he was completely wrong. He got mad and stompped away. I would never go back there and reccommend that noone else does either. They are the kind of dealer that the "Car Salesman" nightmare stories are based on. It wasn't just those 2, we actually had 4 salesman and managers try to force us into the deal.
