Aunt Jean came to visit and went home a new Kia owner.

She visited me on vacation and it just so happened I was test driving a new Kia Sedona minivan. Aunt Jean was so impressed by the Sedona that after a few days, she called my uncle and asked him to set up a test drive for when she returned home. Yep! She loved it that much!

This is not the first time she has been with me during a test drive. But this is the first time she loved a car  enough to call her husband in Michigan about it.

Kia Sedona or Kia Sorento, Take Your Pick Aunt Jean!

When she came to visit the next time, I happened to be test driving the Kia Sorento. Although she didn’t phone home this go around, I could tell that she was very interested in this SUV and the Kia brand as a whole. Last month, she and my uncle paid a visit to the Kia dealership in Michigan and leased a 2019 Kia Sorento ES.

I Can’t Say I’m Surprised. Kia Has That Effect on People

This brand knows what customers want. It’s all in the design, ease of driving, comfort, and pricing. From my Aunt Jean’s big smile, I just knew she was a happy new Kia owner. And I am so happy to have helped her find her new car.

Here’s What Aunt Jean Had to Say About Her New Car. 

Aunt Jean has had her Kia Sorento for a month now so I decided to call her and chat about her experience. I’m always curious to know whether a person is happy with their purchase and what they love about their cars. Everyone has a story.

Dawn Gibson-Thigpen: What made you go with the Kia Sorento?

Aunt Jean: I love the Sedona… but the Sorento was a bit more sporty, provides a hint of luxury and it provides more of what I am looking for in a vehicle.

DGT: Did you buy or lease?
AJ: I decided to lease with the option to buy after three years because I like the fact that they take care of everything. If there is a scratch they will fix it, and I love that if a person was to black out and can’t call 911, emergency assistance can find you and dispatch an ambulance.
DGT: Wow! That is impressive!

DGT: Did you get it from a Kia Dealership? If so, what was your experience like?

AJ: Yes. It was a Kia dealership. The Kia salesperson provided excellent customer service and he was very thorough. I feel like he went above and beyond.

DGT: How does it feel when you get behind the wheel to drive the car?
AJ: It feels like I’m driving a 3-in-1 vehicle. A truck, station wagon, and a car all combined and I love it!
DGT: A 3-in-one? Love it! What is your overall impression of the SUV now that you have had it for a few months?

AJ: I love the way it handles! The interior and the look of the dashboard is extremely impressive and I love that ALL of my friends love it and are a little jealous!

Interior of the 2019 Kia Sorento

DGT: I love the color! Why did you pick red?
AJ: It was the snazziest color out of all the ones they had to offer.
DGT: Based on your current experience, do you think you would purchase another Kia?
AJ: Well I really don’t know at the moment. I have to say I am very satisfied and happy with this decision, but because I have only had it for a few months I am not sure yet.
DGT: What are some of your favorite features?
AJ: Sitting up high for one. Also, the Bluetooth capabilities and the hands-free phone. Oh, and that it’s at a height where I don’t have to step up when getting inside. My husband and I can just slide into the vehicle.
DGT: Does this Kia fit all your needs?
AJ: Well, I wish it had an actual trunk. That’s the one thing I miss. I’m old school like that.
DGT: Makes sense. Would you lease again?
AJ: Yes, because of the perks. It takes a lot of stress off both my husband and me.
