There are many great reasons why to buy your KIA from Premier KIA during the month of May. Our inventory of new and certified pre-owned KIA's is now at it's largest, including a nice supply of the 2014 Sorento and the arrival of the 2014 Forte! This inventory is backed by a new set of bonus incentives, including Owner Loyalty if you drive a KIA now, or competitive bonus if you drive a similar vehicle. Plus, with the high demand, we have bulked up our sales staff as well to better assist you!
KIA moves upscale to attract luxury buyers
With the all new redesigned 2014 Kia Forte and the all new Kia Cadenza hitting stores shortly, it is evident that KIA is trying to attract buyers that typically look to buy higher-end vehicles, such as BMW's and Mercedes.The 2014 Kia Forte, a redesigned model, has enough new equipment and amenities to attract those who would normally drop $40,000 or more on a luxury vehicle. The loaded Forte EX includes a 2-liter GDI four cylinder engine with 173 horsepower, that feels like quite a bit more. It also features four heated leather seats(plus the driver also has a cooling option), a heated steering wheel, power-folding mirrors, LED headlights, and, last but not least, the all new UVO eServices feature allowing you to call emergency services and run diagnostics from your car, even park your car and program its location to your smartphone.
The all new 2014 Kia Cadenza is also on its way. A navigation with an 8 inch touch screen, dual-zone automatic climate control, push button start, Infinity Audio System, and a backup camera are standard. Plus if you get the Premium and Technology package, you also get a seven-inch TFT display in the gauge cluster, 19 inch alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-departure warning.

Not only do we have the new 2014 Forester, but we have a late-model pre-owned one as well!

I drove from the Albany, NY area to buy a car from Premier Subaru. They had the *best* prices within a 100-mile radius, hands down. Rita was FANTASTIC to deal with. She set up everything ahead of my Saturday visit and called me en route to let me know who to ask for once I got there. I met with Adam, who had the car all ready for a test drive by the time I arrived. Will, Rodney, and Mike tag-teamed on the trade-in and financing ends. Tammy batted cleanup and took care of all the other details, including handling out-of-state registration. It was a wonderful experience and I absolutely *LOVE* my 2012 Subaru Legacy! It was more than a 12-hour day that included a 6-hour round trip, but I'm very happy I made the drive. If you want a great price on a Subaru and a fabulous team to work with, go to Premier Subaru! You won't regret it.

My husband and I were looking for a used car to replace his 2005 WRX before it started needing some major work. The time was right because we will be able to pass this car along to our son as a vehicle for college in a couple of years. We looked specifically for a Suzuki as we bought one for our college age daughter last year and were very pleased with the purchase based on reliability and price. So we started looking for dealers in CT who had suzukis on their lot. First off, my husband liked the dealer because he could set up an appointment on-line without having to speak to a salesperson first. We went to our appointment, were warmly greeted by Cindy and were able to take two different models out for a lengthy test drive. At the end of the appointment, we told Cindy we needed time to discuss, could we do something to hold the cars until the next day when we had come to a decision. She told us to go ahead and discuss and give her a call the next day to follow up. We decided Wednesday night that we would indeed purchase one of the two vehicles we had driven and that we would trade in my husband's car to do so. We gave a credit card over the phone as a hold payment and I mentioned to Cindy that since the drive was over an hour for us, it would be helpful if we could take delivery when we returned. That was not a problem and after exchanging several e-mails, we drove home in our new car on Saturday afternoon. I don't think anyone would give a car dealer a bad rap again if all visits went like this one. I would recommend dealers operate as much as possible by e-mail as it makes the experience so much more pleasant and less stressful once inside the dealership. Our experience was great and we plan to go back to Premier Kia/Subaru for our next car. Thank you so much Liam and Cindy! Laurie and Richard Gerry
