Additional Notes

Complaint: I am writing to address an issue that concerns me. I came into Kia on December 17, 2014 to inquire about a vehicle. I decided to purchase a vehicle, but I was denied financing, because I was upside down in my current vehicle. My issue is either the sales person or the sales manager is still running my credit without my consent. The sales person and the sales manager have called me multiple times and left messages and I have not returned their calls. I have received a plethora of letters from car financing companies. Approximate three weeks ago, I called and talked with a manager about someone still running my credit without my permission and he ask for my name and number and said he would follow up on this and call me back. I have not heard from him. Today in the mail I have received another letter. I called and talk to someone and when I asked for the corporate office number, he puts the sales person that helped me back in December on the phone. I asked the sales person for the corporate number and someone in the background yelled ou* ************. I called that number to find out it is the sister store. I called and left a message with you and **** ******* to call me. I also filed a complaint against this store with corporate (#********) and with the Better Business Bureau. However in the meantime, Im consulting a lawyer to see what my options are and what actions can I take against Colonial Kia. I am so unhappy with this level of service. My credit score is being affected by this because someone is trying to make a sale. I hope you are planning to correct this matter by contacting all three credit company and get this taking off my credit.

Desired Settlement: I am asking that they get this off my credit and refund my money I am paying for credit alert with score sense. It is cost $15 monthly for a year. ($180)

Business Response: **** ****** and I spoke Friday afternoon. I apologized for the incident and let Mrs. ****** know we are working to remove the inquires from her credit. We also agreed I am going to do her next three oil changes on her current vehicle as they become due at no charge. I also let Mrs. ****** know that I will personally assist if we can be of any future assistance to her.

Consumer Response: [A default letter is provided here which indicates your acceptance of the business's offer.  If you wish, you may update it before sending it.]

Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the offer made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and find that this resolution would be satisfactory to me. I will wait for the business to perform this action and, if it does, will consider this complaint resolved. If the company does not perform as promised I can get back to you at: ****************************
