Sidney Banks absolutely knocked himself out to find exactly what I wanted, at a price I wanted....as a single woman I felt he helped me in every way.
I recently purchased a 2009 Kia Sorento from Lake Manawa Nissan Kia in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The gentleman that helped me was Teddy G. I received a call from Teddy immediately the morning after I had filled out some information on the web site. After speaking with him for only a few minutes and getting some more information about the kind of car I was interested in, I couldn't wait to meet him. At first I was interested in a Nissan X-terra. When my wife and I arrived at the dealership he had a completely different car for me to look at which wound up being the car that I purchased. I didn't mind this at all because with as much experience as he has I knew he would help me find the right car that would fit my needs and financial situation.
Our salesman Mike Mayer and GM Chuck Norman went well out of thier way to make sure that we were not only going to be a new customer, but a customer for life. I witnessed both Mike and Chuck do and say things that we would never hear anywhere else. My wife and I are definately going to be repeat customers at this dealership!!
I went to Nissan not expecting to actually find anything that I was interested just yet. I walked out with a car that I already love thanks to Teddy G. He did an excellent job finding my car for me. He got to know me as a person not as a market value. I greatly recommend him for anyone who wants buy a new or used vehicle. He will find it for you and work his magic :)
Originally I called Lake Manawa about buying a car and spoke to a nice man named Eric who suggested I fill out a simple form located on their website to get pre-approved for a loan. He called back about an hour after I filled out the application and we set up a time to come in and look around. Upon arrival, Eric was busy with another client and asked Teddy G to help us. I honestly thought since Teddy wasn't going to be the one to receive commission on our sale (since I had spoke to Eric earlier) he wouldn't care one way or another if we bought a car. Teddy G. proved me wrong (thankfully!) He did all the foot work and took care of us despite the fact that he may be losing his chance to sell cars to others. The entire staff was very friendly, unlike other dealerships we have gone to. Also, we didn't feel pressured to buy. I would recommend this dealership to anyone interested in buying or just looking to buy a car.
We are writing this review tonight to let you all know how our experience at Lake Manaw Nissan/Kia went. My husband and I went to Lake Manawa Nissan/Kia in search for a particular vehicle that we had seen on their website. This was a 2009 Ford Fusion, and I must say I absolutely love my car! I have to give a BIG shout out to Teddy G for being an outstanding salesman, he was very personable and easy to talk to. Teddy is not your run of the mill car salesman in the sense that he is not pushy and talks to you like you are an equal and doesn't make you feel like you are being forced to do something you really aren't sure of, he knows his stuff. Over all everybody we came in contact with were very friendly. Will definately stay a Lake Manawa Nissan/Kia customer in the future.
When i came in, i had just come from a previous dealership that was terrible in thier business dealing. When i came to Lake Manawa Kia, i was approached by Richard who was determined to put me in a nice car for the price i could afford. I couldnt ask for more than that.
I got a great deal on a brand new car. Everyone was very nice. Richard and other associates werent pushy at all. Very professional. It gave me the sense that this one dealership werent just about making the sell, but making sure that their people are well taken care of.
For me having minimal credit history, having a budget price i was willing to pay, and to Richard for putting me in a brand new car for what i was willing to pay is only just a little example of how good this salesman and this dealership were good to me in our business. I am definitely making recommendations to this place. Richard is a great salesman and this dealership has some good people. Everyone should give this place a chance if youre trying to get a new car. They wont let you down!
I cannot say enough positive things about this dealership and its staff. I personally worked with Teddy G. (who I must say was the BEST sales person I've ever worked with) but everyone that we came in contact with went out of thier way to be helpful, friendly and accomidating. I feel that we were given a GREAT deal and I dont know that you can ever walk out of a car dealership and say that! But I can about this place. I can honestly say that I will be back for future vehicle purchases and will recommend this place to everyone I know. Thanks again, Teddy G. and Staff of LMNK!!
Everyone knows that buying a car can be a stressful experience. I just bought my first car from Lake Manawa and lets just say the experience was great! I worked with Erine Hope and he was so wonderful and so patient with me I could not have asked for a better salesman! It took me a quite a while between test driving and going over payments before I actually made a decision, and Erine never pressured me or made me feel uncomfortable during the process. He let me think for myself and make my own decision. He was always willing to talk to me with any questions that I had and he told me to call at any time! He made my first car buying experience something to rememeber..in a good way!! Everybody that I talked to at Lake Manawa was very friendly and willing to help. I would definately recommened that dealership to anyone and would tell them to go see Erine!!
Ben's customer service was outstanding! He took the time to assist me in finding the vehicle that was right for my needs. Ben is very knowledgeable in the different options my vehicles has and explained how each option functioned and the location of them. Ben has a great personality and seems to enjoy what he is doing and he made this purchase very enjoyable and relaxing. I would definitely recommend him to others. He worked hard at getting me the vehicle that I could afford and made sure I was comfortable with the end result. Kudos to Ben! Great job, it was a pleasure doing business with you.
