A relaxing and tailored experience

Tj made our car buying experience great. We never felt pressured to buy and was talked to like a human being instead of just another sale. He and the manager fought to get us into a car that was everything we needed and wanted for our family. Will definitely be back in a few years to get another car from the Royal team and TJ.

He always made sure I understood how things worked, and was always very patient and kind in dealing with a woman who wants to know every detail about every detail! I never once felt he was impatient or didnt have time to discuss all I needed to know in order to purchase this car. I am MORE than satisfied so thanks to all who made it happen. oh, ps, I think TJ definately deserves a RAISE! Thank you!

Black Soul

TJ was very understanding and understood we wanted to look at used Kia Souls and test drive. I was upfront that I was not sure if I was ready to buy a car today. Expressed my budget and he was willing to work with me. Went on a test drive and feel in love with the car. He worked his magic on keeping in my budget and I drove home in my new to me Kia Soul. I would recommend this dealership and salesman to friends an family. The warranty sales the car itself. Thank you Kia!

TJ and Sam were awesome! They knew I had some credit issues that was hard for me to share and they were so kind. Treated me respectfully with no pressure. If I had a dealership I would make TJ my sales director! I heard about your credit assistance from your tv ad. I went on line and texted your dealership and it was Taylor who responded and she too was kind and professional. The roses were so nice. Thank you! I will come back to your dealership. Great job TJ!

Great dealership

Awesome dealership! no pressure and great people to work with. I started with TJ and ended with Hector. I was not sure what I wanted when I first came in. I loved the Rio but needed more room to carry stuff. Both were very patient with me and did not pressure me into a car I didn't want. I had looked at other dealers and check out many other cars when I found the one that I wanted I went back to Royal. I didn't want to deal with any other dealership or any other sales person except for TJ and Hector, so I came back to see what they had in the car I wanted. I got a great deal on a used Kia Soul.

Kia Telluride

Our experience at Royal Kia began with T.J. Bjork giving us a test drive in a Telluride. He was great to work with. When we returned to the dealership, T.J. was not available to help us, as he was busy with a customer, so introduced us to his co-worker, Jesus Camargo. The team dynamics prevented any awkwardness for us to no longer deal with T.J. Our salesperson, Jesus Camargo, made our car buying experience so pleasant! He was extremely courteous, friendly, and went "above and beyond" to help us purchase our car. We had ordered our car as there was not one on the lot that suited our needs. When it arrived earlier than anticipated, Jesus seemed as excited as us! Jesus is very knowledgeable about the paperwork, the processing of the sale, and certainly didn't let us drive away without fully explaining each and every button and feature in that car! He helped us program our phones and sync them and was considerably patient in this process, too. To complete the paperwork, we didn't have a form necessary, so to prevent us from driving back to the dealership, he offered to pick it up at our front door on his way home! We feel like we have made a new friend.

Best New Car Buying Experience I Ever Had!

I recently went in for a service at Royal Kia on my 2016 Soul and ended up trading it in for a 2019 Soul. I cant say enough about what a great experience I had! I worked with T.J and I felt like he was on my team the whole time. It was the best car shopping experience I ever had. The price was great, the trade in value they gave me on my old Soul was great, and the whole process was great. I will definitely go back to Royal for my next soul and I will ask for T.J. when I need an associate in sales.

Best car buying experience I’ve had

From start to finish, buying my Stinger was a wonderful experience. TJ was fast, responsive, and left no question unanswered. The in-office experience was efficient, respecting my time as I drove in from Phoenix, yet, all options, terms, and conditions were well explained. My only regret is not finding the team at Royal sooner. To TJ, Matt, and Humberto, thank you for making what is usually a trying experience enjoyable.

Just fantastic!

Took in a car to trade, I still had a loan on it. And was worried that I wasn't able to walk out with another car. But T.J. worked his butt off to make sure I would walk out with a car that I was going to love for years to come. And I did! Originally I had my eyes set for a different type of car, but sadly they didn't have it in stock. But I love the one I left with in the end.

"Great Experience Working With T.J. At Royal Kia"

Went to Royal last Saturday with the thought of checking out the Kia Stinger GT, I had no intention of purchasing that day however I was so impressed with the car and the sales team I drove home a beautiful new red GT. The car is amazing, and a great value against other small luxury performance vehicles such as Audi and BMW. My salesperson T.J., who is new to the sales team, was already in great customer service form, and made the experience quick and hassle free. I would highly recommend this dealer, and TJ as a great dealership, and a friendly, helpful sales person. Thanks to Royal!!

Best Experience Ever

Years ago we purchased a used car through Royal Buick and enjoyed the experience then. However, we have purchased cars through other dealerships throughout the past 30 years and those experiences were lackluster and frustrating at best. So, when we decided to buy once again we decided to go back to Royal and chose Royal Kia. Our Sales Rep was Everett Griggs and we had the most fun and enjoyable experience ever in the whole process. Our test drives (we had to experience the Niro and then the Soul GT-Turbo) were long enough to get a feel for the car; gave us the opportunity to drive in different road conditions; and have the opportunity to use some of the features of the car. "Beto" continued to check im with us to make sure Everett was treating us well. Everything was explained to our understanding and often to make sure we were comfortable with the transaction and had a clear understanding of the terms and process. Everyone we interacted with at Royal was polite, pleasant, courteous, and ready to assist or find assistance for us. We returned once to pick up the car and another time to go over the car's features once again. At that time we interacted with Melissa, who was a hoot, thorough, and patient. I can't imagine buying a car any other dealership.

Best experience purchasing a vehicle!

We worked with Everett Griggs, who was so supportive and patient with what we wanted. He took the time to show us what was available, answered our many questions, and sought out the best options for us. We never felt like Kia was trying to just sell us a car and be done with us nor did we ever feel rushed. We know that Everett wanted to make sure we were happy with what we chose. The trust that was there was very evident and continues to be so today. We love our car, and still believe we got a great deal! And, how can you go wrong with the Warranty Forever? That shows how committed Royal Kia is in selling quality cars. That shows their committment to making sure we are all safe and happy!

Everett (now our cousin) made the process very fun and enjoyable. Buying a car is stressful, but he was very patient with us. Along the way, he taught us new things about buying cars and he explained the ins and outs of the way dealerships work. He was honest and cared about what we wanted. At the end of the day, it wasn't about the numbers it's about what would make us happy. We will come back in the future!

I headed to Kia (just to look around) and was greeted by Everett. When I say this man is personable I mean it. From the moment he greeted my roommatw and I, we felt comfortable... Like he was family. He listened and heard of the horrible week i had had. He asked what I was looking for and what i wanted as well as needed in my car. He listened and walked out to the lot.... When he returned, he was in MY car. It is everything I had hopped for. Everett worked hard while sprinkling singing and joking into our meeting. Today, I was blessed to sign papers to my car. Latte (my car's name) was a blessing I didn't expect produced by and angel on earth. For as long as Everett is in the car business, I will send all I know looking for a car his way. Hey fam.....

Ideal car buying experience!

I am super happy with my recent buying experience with Everett at Royal Kia. I first went to look at vehicles last week, and Everett showed me several great options that were within my budget; I didn't purchase that day, so he kept an eye out for me to find something perfect. I eventually decided on a used 2018 Kia Soul. Everett made the financing and paperwork easy, and did his best to work the process around my insanely busy schedule. My new car is gorgeous (and totally nerdy thanks to a custom decal I had added!) and I would definitely go back for my next vehicle! Thank you!

Everett made the process painless!

Dealing with a car dealership can be as painful as going to the dentist. This was the 4th dealership that we visited and we had an amazing experience working with Everett Griggs. Everett was very professional and knowledgeable regarding our needs. He approached us with a demeanor that was respectful and courteous. He listened to our needs, asked clarifying questions and provided us with options based on our needs and our budget. He did not try to steer us to what we did not want or did not need. Through multiple test drives of vehicles, he patiently answered our questions and never appeared to be in a rush. When we finally made our decision, he guided us through the purchasing process with the same smile and winning personality five hours later. When we left, we had an unfinished item that needed to be resolved regarding the code to manually unlock our vehicle. He provided us with the answer within 24 hours. My wife and I would definitely recommend him again. I'm not sure if all of the sales persons at Royal Kia are on the same par as Everett - if they are, anybody looking to purchase a vehicle will be in very capable hands. Thank you Everett and God bless brother!

Everett is Awesome!

I had a great experience buying a truck from Everett Griggs. I am a busy, working mom of 3 and I was dreading the “process” of buying a new car. Everett made it so easy and effortless! He even drove some of the trucks I was interested in to my work so I could test drive them. He kept me realistic about my needs vs. my wants, he’s hilarious and he will probably show you his dance moves if you ask! When I came to pick up my truck he had it clean, a bow on top, and he presented me with a dozen gorgeous red roses. Everett Griggs will be my car guy for life-no need to mess with the rest!

I absolutely love the way this dealership and my personal salesman dealt with me. With my less than perfect credit and little down payment, available, they were able to get me into a car that I LOVE! They don't work for commission, so the pressure to sell me something high priced and not what I really want was immediately missing from our dealings. The salesman listened to me and allowed me to choose the vehicle I wanted. My afternoon felt more like spending the day with an old friend than it did a business transaction. They even gave me a dozen roses when I left! I'd probably still be married if my husband had treated me as well as I was treated at Royal Kia, lol. I would and have been recommending them to everyone. I LOVE my KIA! Thank you Royal Kia and Everett for restoring my faith in honest car sales!!! You all ROCK!

Recieved the Royal treatment.

To facilitate the rest of the purchase transaction; our new Kia Niro was delivered personally by Everett the next morning to our home some twenty miles away from the dealership. He not only topped it with a huge red bow, he also bought a dozen red roses from a florist and gave them to me. Now that's Royal treatment. But it goes much further than that. He welcomed us on arrival, treated us with respect. Listened to the wife's [primary driver] wants/needs. When he couldn't come up with the right combination, he offered a better alternative at a better price. At no time did we feel pressured into buying from him. He quickly picked up on our family dynamics, and used those to tell us about different features etc. Needless to say we shared a lot of laughter. He is a dedicated family man, and military service member, and those traits were also visible in our interactions. Also appreciated the dealer's process. Rachel, as sales manager, stopped by and introduced herself. But most importantly Everett handled everything, from the financial end, and service options. Didn't have to go from office to office, or deal with different persons, who didn't know us.

Will be with Kia forever

This is the second car we've bought with Everett Griggs at Royal Kia and honestly I don't think we'll be going anywhere else for vehicles in the future. Everett is all about his customers and finding the right vehicle for them within their price point. Car buying can be a stressful experience and Everett not only makes you laugh and feel at ease but looks out for you like family to make sure you get the best deal possible. I never thought I'd have fun car buying but I do at Royal Kia.

Easy & Simple

I appreciate Everett Griggs showed up at our office with a vehicle we described to him a few months back what we were looking for. As soon as Everett found a vehicle for us, he just showed up & let us look. No need to go to dealership. All paperwork was done at our business. This couldn’t have been more convenient for us due to our busy schedules. Thank you Everett for being attentive & so accommodating!

First time buyer

On October 4th, 2018, I purchased my first brand new car! I am so excited with my new addition! It took a few hours for me to finish the process but I wouldn't change it for anything. Prior to going to Royal Kia I literally was having a rough day (which consisted of LOTS of tears). While I was there I was working with Everett. Everett really took the time to crunch the numbers to make sure he was able to get what I wanted without taking advantage because that's what dealerships like to do when you're a female. Everett is AMAZING and I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND working with him! He was super professional but when he felt the tension of me and my emotions he cracked a few jokes to make sure I didn't shed anymore tears while sitting at his desk! If I would've known that buying a car was this easy I would've went to see Everett sooner! Thank you Everett for making car buying easy and helping take some stress off my shoulders! I was real tired of looking.

The Best, by far

This was my first car buying expierence. I went to a couple dealerships before to browse cars I found online and that’s what originally brought me into Royal Kia. Compared to the others, Royal Kia was the best expierence I had, by far. Everett Griggs was my car salesman. He exceeded mine and my family’s expectations. He got to know me and was able to find cars other than the one I originally came in for, to open up my options within my price range (without pressuring to exceed it). He knew the ins and outs of the vechicle I test drove while also giving me a perfect route to really get a feel for the vechicle. After that, he walked through everything so I got a clear understanding of my options and the pros and cons of each vechicle. He did not pressure me, he was very patient, he was a joy and funny person to be around, and he was very knowledgeable about the cars, the business, and the process as a whole. (Also, great taste in hats!) I ended up leaving the Royal Kia leasing a 2019 Kia Forte. Very proud of my decision and thankful for the help of Everett. I would highly recommend Royal Kia as your dealership to visit and Everett Griggs as your guy to work with.

Great car buying experience!!

Went to other dealerships in Tucson and Phoenix and test drove 5 other gas/hybrid vehicles. Went to Royal and met Everett Griggs, a salesperson. He was EXTREMELY helpful and personable. Royal did not have the vehicle we wanted but Everett found one in Phoenix. Royal bargained on our behalf to obtain the vehicle at a discounted price and then Everett drove to Phoenix and brought the car back. We purchased a 2018 Niro EX, easily the best of the gas hybrids. The sale went easy, the financing was simple, there was a rebate on the Niro and we got a vehicle with all the features we wanted for less than I expected to pay. We are very happy. Go to Royal and ask for Everett

Everett Griggs and Royal Kia

What an amazing experience! We had been searching for a vehicle for a while and visited many different dealerships in Tucson. Royal Kia made us feel very comfortable, their entire staff was friendly. The representitive who assisted us (Everett Griggs) was, by far, the most knowledgeable and honest representative we had the pleasure of working with in our vehicle hunt. He made this potentially “painful” process feel like a walk in the park. I would recommend this dealership (if you can, ask for Everett) in purchasing or leasing a vehicle appropriate for your needs. The service and reputation is superior.

We just purchased our new vechile on the 4th of July and we were extremely satisfied with the entire process and absolutely love our new Kia! Our sales consultant was Everett Griggs and he was very knowledgeable and fun to do business with! I’ve always heard good things about Royal Kia and how they are different from other dealers (in a good way), and what do you know it’s the truth! What a great car buying experience! We knew what we wanted before we started the process and had 2 local dealerships to choose from. I am so glad we chose Royal! They made the process seem easy and made us feel comfortable. We walked out with exactly what we wanted and more. I highly recommend Royal Kia!

This was my first time ever buying a car from a dealership, and the people at Kia made everything go as smooth and painless as possible! I got the privilege to have been helped by 2 wonderful Kia employees! Carlos Pineda made things as easy and comfortable as possible, showing and explaining everything about the car and what the whole process was going to be about, and to close it up, Everett walked me through the whole financing process, which was the point which scared me the most, but they both made it feel seamless and as painless as it can be. The whole thing was pleasant and well explained, no doubts were left up in the air, and they always talked to me straight, nothing hidden, no surprises along the way. I'm so happy with my purchase and would completely recommend someone coming here for their first car purchase!

He was exceptionally friendly and took extra incentive with my needs in the car style and price range that I wanted. He went out of his way to accommodate to my every need and even followed up with me the following days regarding my decision.

Research about what we wanted in a car and past history with Royal Kia led us back there for our new car. Absolutely no standing around waiting for help. Both Everett Griggs and Ali were on hand with answers, info, and genuine customer service that fit the category of hospitality. Taking test drives with Everett was comfortable accompanied by his help and very engaging personality. We had a very pleasant experience test driving, looking and at cars and going through the truly hassle-free pricing, and "tutorial" for Apple Play ad UVO, etc. Our new Kia Optima EX includes more standard equipment than we anticipated. We're more than happy with the car, customer service, and now being a two Kia car family. Thank you, Royal Kia! Ethel and Hank Miller

Most fun I've ever had buying a car

Everett was great! I've had some terrible experiences buying a car so I was apprehensive at first but Everett showed that he really cared about me, my family, and what was going to be best for us. He took the time and asked questions to determine which car would be the best fit for me and my family, not just trying to talk me into the most expensive vehicle like other dealerships have. He was not only focused on what would suit us best, he was funny! He put us completely at ease with his humor and that allowed us to actually enjoy the experience. I would recommend Everett to anyone and will certainly be going back to him when it's time to replace my other vehicle.

Simply The Best Vehicle Buying Experience In Tucson!

Make no mistake, I hate car dealerships...but Beto and Royal Kia have earned my business time and time again. Between my family and the company I work for, our new 2018 Sorento is the 7th vehicle we've purchased or leased from Royal since 2010. Now that Beto has promoted to management, he now refers us to a salesperson when we come in, which is how we met Everett Griggs. Everett is a hard-working family man who is friendly, professional, and could probably pull off a 2nd job as a stand-up comedian. Being a vehicle enthusiast and very detail oriented, I fully realize that I can be a difficult customer, yet these guys worked well past closing time to get us what we needed. I have and would absolutely continue to recommend them and Royal to anyone.

I was able to get a brand new car, something i never imagined was possible!!

Not your typical salesman

When browsing with Everett it is like you are with one of your close friends. In the interaction with my family and Everett there were as many laughs as we have at a family get together. He never pushed us to buy any car or any add-on. He knows what a car means to people and is extremely patient (We are very indecisive). When I go in for an oil change we catch up and share a laugh. He takes car salesman to a new level, and it's not even a choice to only see him from now on. I wouldn't think about going to anyone else. My family is more than satisfied with our experience with Everett to say the least. -Daniel

Ask for Everett or Humberto

I hate buying a car. But Everett made it easy! He is very transparent and never embellishes on the product. He was able to recognize the best car to fit me and my needs and that's not easy lol Everett's humor is over the top. My teenage daughter and I loved it and she said she'd always go to Everett for a car. I know she'll have a great career so he will see her in the future many times. Humberto would have been my next choice because he's always smiling and has a warm personality. My only gripe, is that the manager took the fun out of it and caused a lot of anxiety by telling me I didn't qualify (which I did) and that was out of Everett's control. Thankfully, Everett applied his genius, dug deeper into the financial offices, got me settled down and I purchased the Soul. I'm sad for that, but LOVE THE SOUL~ and Everett. He'll always be my go-to. He should be the manager.

Ordered the "Royal Rice" again at my KIA Dealership

If you're up in mid-town Tucson looking for a great deal, you gotta check out the "Tom Rice" they serve up at Royal KIA. And if you're real lucky, you could also get a bit of "Beto" on the side. I happened to have a service need at the dealership last week on my older Sorento we purchased from Tom a few years ago, and as I always do while waiting, I asked if Tom was in. While chatting, one thing led to another and we started looking at the newer Sorento models on the lot, but nothing stood out. Too pricey, not the options desired, etc. - you know the drill. Finally Tom says I should look at a recent trade-in out on the back lot that was just dropped off that morning. Turns out this was the right car at the right price at the right time. Made the deal, with every issue we wanted taken care of completely addressed over the next few days. In this process, we met Tom's sales manager, Beto, and I'm sure he had a bit to do with making sure we continue to be extremely pleased Royal KIA customers. Stop by, ask for Tom, and you too may be lucky enough to "Smell the Roses".

No next-day regrets!

Having first researched possible cars for my picky requirements, I arrived in Tom Rice's office hopeful but far from confident. Past experiences had made car investments less than marvelous. Mr. Rice, though, took all of my specifications seriously and took the time to find the very best vehicle, within my comfortable price point, and loaded with equipment I desired. The test drive was pressure free. After my purchase, Mr. Rice took plenty of time to make sure I was able to operate functions I was unfamiliar with. In fact, I have had questions about technology integration, and he is still patiently explaining things so that I can optimize my new car's operations. I have been living with my new investment for a week and haven't had any regrets. Thanks!

A Case Study of Retail Excellence

It is increasingly rare to experience true excellence in retail transactions. In our frantic, warp speed world, few take the time to pause and really consider the needs of the customer. Royal Kia is a welcome exception to this rule. My purchase of a new car there went very smoothly, thanks especially to Tom Rice, who listened to me and exhibited friendliness and patience as we sorted through alternatives and arrived at exactly the right car to meet my immediate and future needs. Neither Tom, nor anyone else at the dealership, ever made me feel as if I was being pushed in a particular direction, and no one gave the impression that there selling a car was more important than my satisfaction. I would highly recommend Royal Kia — and Tom — to any of my friends who asked whether that is a good place to do business. I strongly suspect that in the not-too-distant future, my wife and I will be purchasing another car from Royal Kia.

Tom Rice was amazing he listened to me and helped me get into the truck I wanted. Did not try to sell me something I didnt want. The manager and Tom are amazing. I recomend them for all vehicle purchases.

Quick and stress free

I knew what I was looking for when I arrived and Lindsey Stoll showed me the cars I was interested in. We ended up taking several test drives and she answered all my questions and took the time to show me how everything works. My previous car was much older. :) Lindsey made the final paperwork quick and stress free and even checked on me a couple days later to make sure all was well. Thanks Lindsey!!

Great Car Buying Experience

We went in looking for a Kia Soul and Zach made the experience hassle-free and relaxing. He was very patient with us while we discussed what we wanted and helped explain everything clearly. We would definitely recommend him for great customer service.

Great experience!

After communicating with Tom Rice while still in Michigan, I looked forward to meeting with him to find a new car in Tucson. I was not disappointed! He knew what I was looking for and the price range I wanted to stay in and he exceeded my expectations. I was looking at newer used cars with low mileage and Tom and Royal Kia were able to put me in a new car for the same monthly payment. I will definitely recommend Royal Kia and Tom Rice in particular to anyone looking for a car and great service and satisfaction.

A great experience.

Though relatively new as a Sales Associate, it was readily apparent that Lindsey will be quite successful. I was immediately comfortable with Lindsey. She displayed the two most desired attributes for a sales person by maintaining eye contact with and actually listening to what I was looking for in my vehicle of choice. I had spent the prior two months surfing the internet in an attempt to find the most vehicle for the best price. I came to the dealership to test drive a late model "used" Kia Sorento, but because she listened & understood my expectations she was able to put me in a "new" vehicle for only a little more than what I would have paid for the "used" one. Lindsey was very friendly, courteous and knowledgeable of the available inventory and made me one happy customer. Love my Kia Sorento!! Thank you, Lindsey!!!

Record time

From the time I sat down and said, "I'm meeting a friend in an hour and before that I want to buy a car," Tom was the height of professionalism, putting me in the car I needed and wanted in record time. He also took our 24 year old Volvo in trade--what could be better? Would always recommend this sales person and this dealership.

Fantastic Service

This is the second time I have gotten a car from Royal Kia. The first was 3 years ago when I decided to lease a Sorento. I loved the car, but the lease was coming due. I decided I wanted to buy instead of lease and thought I really didn't need a car that big. I contacted Royal Kia and was given the assistance of Tom Rice. Tom was extremely patient with me as I changed my mind over and over and over. Poor guy probably didn't know what I was going to come up with next . . . will it be a used car or a new car. Well, this last Saturday I drove my brand new 2018 Kia Sportage home. I love the car, although there is still a lot to learn about it. Tom worked very hard to help me find the car just right for me, and he did a great job at it! Thank you Tom!

The best car buying experience I have had

Tom was easy to work with, wasn't pushy or confusing, and made this experience do-able. When we had a miscommunication, Tom worked hard to make things right. I would send anyone I know looking for a car to work with Tom.

GREAT CAR BUYING EXPERINCE!!

This is my 2nd Kia Optima and I love it! The "royal" car buying experience is great (how often can you say that??) There is no pressure and you feel respected. Eli and I began my buying experience while I was waiting for a new tire on my 2015 Optima! He is very professional and friendly (an important combination for me). I would highly recommend you to experience the "royal" buying experience.
