Default 401 DIXIE KIA terrible staff/disrespectful sales 5505 AMBLER DR MISSISSAUGA

So me and vaportech went car shopping this afternoon. Looking to trade in my lexus for something faster. (car too much of a turtle ) him looking to trade in his 335is.

Note: I have test driven an IS F, m3 vert (sales drove, it was manual), camaro 2SS etc in the past weeks and many cars in the past (g35, bmw 335i etc) and never had a bad experience. Sales were always helpful and some were even encouraged me to test the car on off/on ramps (no speed limit technically).

This only applies if you're planning to test drive high performance cars at this dealer, they think you have to drive an amg like a kia just cuz that's all they sell.


Arrive at the dealer was greeted by sales (not gonna mention descent, but take a wild guess) took down info and we got right into the test vehicle (c63 amg). Sales told me and my buddy not to "push" it. So I took it easy around the bends, we go on the 401E on ramp and I gun it, redline etc. When we get off at the next exit, sales says...



sales: do you normally test drive cars like this (he meant me flooring/wot, redlining etc)
me: yeah, how else would I get to test the difference in these performance cars?
sales: i don't normally let people test drive cars like these, not to mention like that (he means me driving aggressive, this guy normally sells kias :facepalm::facepalm
me: you told me not to push it, so I'm already not.



After we go back westward back, he was quiet the entire ride back. I asked him multiple questions about the car to he did not answer... (ok so does he wanna sell cars??). He says yes but I can't push the car. (lol kia ok, not a 70g c63 amg)

When we get back he starts lecturing me how I shouldn't test drive cars hard.. LOL???! He was basically telling us we have to take it easy and not to push the cars...... (he might as well blindfold me and put me in a corolla and tell me it was an amg :facepalm I tell him this isn't the c63 in the GTA, there are plenty (5-6 more) and if he thought we were messing around we'll leave on the spot.

At this point, I get aggravated as the salesman was basically against us buying the car.. I understand it's a public road and you don't drive like a maniac, but flooring it on the on ramp, merging into the right which was free the entire stretch.

Not to mention the difference between the hp and gearing of the IS F (414hp), c63 (453hp?), 2SS (400hp) can not be felt by granny shifting/partial throttle.

At this point vaportech asks for test drive, sales was reluctant saying how if we wanted to he would have to get the manager blah blah as he didn't want to be responsible if anything breaks... so basically he was telling us if we buy the car and drive it hard (redline to the designed rpm etc, stuff may break... lol). We tell sales go ahead ask for the manager. Sales comes out says his manager doesn't even wanna drive along.. so we go for test drive 2 with sales, vaportech driving.

Before we even leave the lot, manager walks out and stops us saying car has been sold. At this point I literally LOL'd. We both immediately get out of the car as I didn't even want to deal with the sales anymore, much less talk numbers. I calmly tell the manager to stop BS'ing us. If he thought we were messing around or didn't actually have the money for the car, tell us. Straight up told him, no sense in lying or giving us the "car has been sold line." Manager claims car has been sold online... hahaha dafuq and that I was a terrible person to question his integrity and calling him a liar. LMAO he's a salesman, what else do they do???

Sales also gave me a long lecture about if I wanted to drive fast, do it in my own car, that I didn't own the test/demo car and I shouldn't drive it hard, even if it was a test drive. He then went on the mention how I was driving too fast on the on ramp and kept saying I may drive crazy fast in my car but not this one, he even mentioned that he could probably drive faster than me in his car (LMFAO... what???).

Oh yeah for the record, I don't drive my own car that aggressively (I know how my car handles at 200+ kph, tracked it and know it's handling), if I'm putting down 50-80g on a car, I f___ing better be able to have a test drive where I can push the car/use it's horsepower.

Here's cliff notes for the lazy reader.

1. test drive c63
2. sales complains about pushing car (flooring/shifting/redlining etc)
3. I took it easy on the bends, I tell sales I'm not pushing it that much
4. sales lectures me about driving, saying this isn't my car, i shouldn't drive like this
5. sales lectures me about being able to drive faster than me in my own car LMAO
6. sales refuses to take vaportech for a test drive says needs manager
7. we say ok get manager
8. comes back out sales comes on test drive #2
9. manager stops us before we leave, saying car sold online
10. i call bs to manager (i tell him if he thinks we're messing around, tell us, we'll leave right away and go elsewhere)
11. manager calls me a terrible person b/c i questioned his integrity (he's a salesman....)
12. we leave right away and go to another dealer to test drive properly

Anyway thats the story, oh yeah below is the link to the listing, bet you if you called tmrw car will still be available.

Ahh man, that sucks to hear what happened! A similar incident happend to me at Markham Mitsubishi, on HWY 7. Went in to see if we could purchase a lancer, the payments were a little high so basically i told the guy, hey i actually went to Honda and they gave me a better deal, can't you do anything better? Then he went off and got all defensive " Oh, well HONDA HAS IT'S OWN BANK, HOW COULD YOU SAY THAT BLAH BLAH BLAH BS" so he gets up, (4 of us were sitting there my parents myself and my little bro) he basically gets up, and goes OK, i'll talk to the manager to see what deal i can get you (which was really nice i thought...) thats until he comes back shakes all our hands, and goes well sorry and that was it. Remember how i just said we were all sitting their and "he went to go talk to the manager" ? my brother saw him just walk "to the manager" which (he didn't) stand their for a few a mins, look back at us, and walk back "like he talked to the manager" BS!

A day after we got our 2008 Honda, LITERALLY a day after, he called us...my dad gave it to him lol didn't even give him a chance to talk! My dad was like "first off, you lied, i've never recievied that type of service in my life, you were racist and you know it (which he was) gave it to him some more, then hung up.

Man i really do hate to hear what happend to you, some people are just so flippin wierd...no wait beyond wierd it scares me lol

That's funny. The power of the human ego. Sales people are brutal for that, generally. As soon as they feel intimidated, it's just a pissing contest after that to show who's in power. Jokes on them, sale = 100% lost.

Let me get this straight...

Before the test drive, the salesman told you not to gun it (whether it is company policy, insurance policy, potentially damaging the engine/vehicle, etc) and you pretended to agree to it. Once you got in the car, you gunned it.

I don't see how it is the salesman's fault...

I have a few vehicles, some are stock, some are slightly modified. Say I let my friend drive my vehicle and he agrees not to push it. As soon as he gets down the street, he guns it. I would be pissed too. First, the engine is not even warmed up, potentially leading to damage to the drivetrain. Second, if he gets a speeding ticket, my insurance would be impacted. Third, if he crashes my vehicle (without killing someone), I will have to deal with it.
