Marla was exceptional!! She was patient, understanding and worked diligently in the best interest of my mother. It was a pleasure working with her and I would recommend anyone that wants to purchase a Kia to go see Marla. We couldn't have asked for better customer service, genuine interest in our needs, and a more friendly person. Great work, Marla!! You are very much appreciated.

TOP TIER TEAM = This is the place for you. Exceptional product, value and service. My family and I drove 400 miles round trip to Sandusky - would do it again. Ownership was outside, under my hood, explaining a question I had about my engine. Very friendly and interested in getting things correct. Sales and finance spent the extra time and energy to make sure my whole family had a great experience; one that was as efficient as possible due to our long trip back home! Answered all our many questions with honesty and good cheer. We left satisfied and very glad we made the long trip to Halleen Kia of Sandusky.

A great experience

I met with Matthew Wilhelm when I arrived at the dealership. I didn't have an idea in mind of what type of vehicle I wanted, but I did know how much I wanted to spend. Within minutes, he had picked out a car that fit in my budget and I love it. My family has purchased 2 vehicles from Halleen and both times it's been a great experience.

Thanks for your great customer servic

With a wife, 10 year old & 2 year old (and trading in our only car), car shopping can be challenging to actually test drive enough cars to find the one for you. Paul was patient & willing to help with getting everyone in & out of vehicles, toddler car seats & all, in order to help us decide on the '15 Kia Optima that we purchased. Richard was also very helpful in financing & also super friendly. When it's time to either add another car to our family, or trade in this one, I know where I'll be shopping.

Great service and staff was very informative

We shopped most all of the local dealerships in the area and the sales people were agressive with sales and were angered and offended when you asked them to calm down and some were simply irate when you you told them you were going elsewhere. We stumbled on the Halleen Kia in Sandusky Ohio and the salesman, Mathew Wilhelm, approached us with a calm demeanor gave us some quick info and left us to browse. Once we found a few new vehicles we were interested in, we approached Matt with a few questions and concerns which he answered promptly without hesitation or having to "ask his manager" like at other dealerships. We test drove the vehicles we were interested in and had a very enjoyable experience speaking with Matt. We shared stories and laughs as if we had been friends for years. His kindness was truly refreshing. He made our car buying experience a great one wich we will never forget. He represented himself and his buisness well. During the purchase process the owner came out to greet us and inquire about out experience. The owner personally thanked us for the purchase of our 2017 Kia Soul Plu

I was in to have 2 recalls looked into on my 2012 KIA Optima EX. The associate took the time to explain what they were doing and why. The overall environment was comfortable. No one was a stranger, I felt I'd known everyone I came in contact with for at least 10+years!! (Besides the owner saying "Hi" & scaring the living daylights out of me---that moment you're consumed by whatever you brought to pass the time & aren't expecting anyone to speak to you! Definitely a hilarious moment!) It was VERY apparent that they were there to help someone make ONE of the biggest decisions of their lives; that's best for YOU, the customer and not THEIR pocket!
