Our sales person Baily was great, a five-star salesperson. Showed us all the cars we wanted and let us drive multiple vehicles to see what we liked. Baily answered many questions via text and email after we drove the cars. Helped us get a good price on the vehicle and was very instrumental in our final choice of cars, a Kia Soul that is exactly what we wanted. The only drawback from our experience was the actual buying process. We spent more than 2 hours waiting. We felt like it was rather drawn out and could have been shortened to make it a more pleasant experience. Still we got the car we wanted and we got a good price on it. We are happy with the overall experience and would recommend Gene Messer Kia to anyone looking to buy a new or used car. We will certainly be shopping here in the future.
