    This was my dealer. No pressure, everyone seems to genuinely enjoy their job. They sell cars but are really relaxed about it. My GT2 was right at sticker price and I didn't try to negotiate. They included 2 sets of floor mats, a free oil change, and gave me a discount on an all season trunk liner.

    These guys have already sold a lot of Stingers and they currently have 27(!) either in stock or on the way. If you're in Colorado or a neighboring state, they may be worth the trip.

    I've found that, in general, smaller dealers in rural areas may not have the stock on the lot, but if you are able to wait for a custom order, they have a LOT less overhead to pay for, lower advertising fees, and they are usually a lot less high-pressure and easier to deal with.

    This dealer has a small-ish facility (low overhead) but good stock. They're not quite rural but are on the I-25 corridor and a part of the quasi-megalopolis that is the Front Range of Colorado which stretches from Fort Collins (where I am) to Colorado Springs.

    I have 4 Kia dealers within around 30 miles of me and there are a ton more in Denver (around an hour away) but I chose these guys because they were the most transparent and were always there when I had a question. I was their first Stinger order back in November and wouldn't hesitate to buy from them again.

    I believe they are one of the largest, of not the largest volume dealer in the state. They have sold a lot of Stingers so far and I was told yesterday that their current allocation of Stingers is possibly the largest in the country.

    I'm also pretty sure their sales force is salaried and not on commission which makes a big difference in the general vibe and the teamwork aspect of the dealer.

    We bought our Sportage from them in 2013, great dealer. Just purchased our Stinger from Peak Kia in Windsor. Trying them out next week for oil change and recall. Will update after that trip.

    I was working with this one and arapahoe kia. Both were battling for my business but arapahoe came through first. I ended up driving up from the springs to arapahoe to pick mine up.

    I agree, personally i would never buy any car at sticker or above. I could be wrong, I just thought that was what the market commanded 1 year ago.

    I brought the posting back because it was still there and a dealer local to me that I had experience with that is still around that deserves accreditation. A 1 year old posting isn't anything, lol. I am a moderator on another forum that at times they bring back threads from 10 plus years ago.

    Back on track, this was a good dealer experience.

    +1 I bought my Stinger from these guys last week and they put every other terrible Kia Dealer in the state to shame. Got me in and out in an hour at $500 a month/$0 down on a Stinger GT1 AWD Lease. They operate more like a BMW/Audi Dealer than a Kia Dealer...after getting chastised by the salesguy at Arapahoe for not willing to buy from him on the spot, then getting a lease quote for the same car (but a leftover 2018) from Grand Kia for $800 a month, these guys are truly the only good option in the Denver Area.

    Glad to get some feedback from Front Range dealers. I'm moving to Estes Park in the next month or two and will definitely check this dealer out. So far my 2018 GT2 AWD has over 30,000 miles and NO problems of any kind.

    Sorry to also be harsh but I think the morons in this thread are the ones who can’t read dates. This post is from early 2018. If you want to be one of the first to own you’re going to pay sticker (or markup), that’s how it works. I personally wouldn’t, but god bless the early adopters buying high. Otherwise this car would not have made it to a second year of production.

    Is that a true statement? Or are you just talking out of your ass?

    Is it true that MSRP was considered a fair price when this car first came out? Absolutely. I think it’s ignorant to call people “morons” for what they paid two years ago when you have no idea what a fair price was at the time.

    Fair, but I also find it ignorant to call a dealer "worth the trip" and "Loving their job" when they sell at MSRP and you don't even negotiate.
