I purchased a second hand vehicle from Wangara Suzuki, the salesman's name was Michael. I found him to be very helpful and he gave me some good advice, he told me to check to see if the vehicle was still under new car warranty and it was- I would not have known that information if Michael had not told me. So I have been very happy with the car, service and advice.

I had a car that I needed to sell and was contacted by Daniel Natoli. We spoke honestly and up front re the condition of the car I was selling and particularly in detail about my vehicle's history, service history, condition, extras on the car and any damage etc.

He offered top $ price sight unseen.

As I was over 500km away, I thought I'm going to get to the yard and be knocked down on price. (as you would normally expect!!) BUT not with Daniel, he was true to his word, I got the price we agreed.

A pleasure to meet and deal with a man with integrity!!

My partner and I came to Wangara Kia specifically looking for a VE Clubsport Tourer. We were greeted by Edin Kuhinja, who informed us there was none in stock. He made all the extra effort to source one for us and it's perfect. During the sale he did not make us feel forced to buy the vehicle, he went about it politely and with a good sense of humour. We felt welcome to be there, and I will be recommending him to everyone I know looking for a used car.


Thankyou and Regards.

Thank you Kia Wangara, and especially thank you to Jim for excellent service and advice. We upgraded from Kia Rio to Kia Sportage Premium, and just love our new car. We have had our Rio for 9 years and never had any problems so we kept it for my husband and I got the new Sportage.

Thank you also for making the pick up of our brand new car very special with the lovely sign and a photo taken. We will definitely recommend Kia Wangara.

My wife & I recently purchased the Kia Platinum Sorrento and were extremely pleased with the professional service given to us by salesman Filip. He displayed experience, in depth car knowledge and honestly with his handling of our questions about the vehicle and nothing was to much trouble for him. The overall delivery process was smooth and we would recommend anyone to see Filip or the team at Wangara Kia.

When the wife's car finally gave up the ghost I went to check out the Kia Rio at Wangara Kia. With a 7 year unlimited warranty and capped price service what more could you ask for when purchasing a new car. The car sold its self. The level of professionalism shown by Filip in assisting with the purchase of the car was second to none. No high pressure sales talk just plain simple and honest presentation of the vehicle's features. When the time is right to change over my own vehicle, Wangara Kia will be my first port of call. Thank you all at Wangara Kia.

I would like to say a massive THANKYOU to the team at Wangara Kia and especially to Jim. I was looking at a couple of different cars and had done my research and it was definitely the easy going, friendly manner that Jim had that definitely helped me make my decision. Other dealers I had been to were pushy and always trying to get me to sign something but Jim was none of these things. He had great knowledge of the cars and talked me through all the features. We had a laugh and he made the whole experience enjoyable, which is what buying a new car should be like. My new Kia Cerato (in the Blue colour that i have always wanted) is so lovely, drives amazing, the features are great and i am so happy.
I have recommended Kia and Jim to friends and family and I cannot thankyou all enough.
On another note, the hot chocolate is great too haha!!!
One Happy Customer :)

After taking a test drive in a Pro_cee'd GT I was put in the hands of Jim Newson and it was all smooth sailing from there.

Thanks to all at Kia Wangara, especially Jim he is such a pressure to buy a car from, he did not push and was very helpful with all the information for my new car. Sam was extremely professional with the finance side of me buying my new car, also Russell in the service department as he was the one who explained the mechanical side of my new car while I had my old car serviced
Thanks you to all

We came shopping for a new Cerato after a fair bit of market research. Jim Newson greeted me and things went quickly and smoothly from there. Jim has two attributes that are, regrettably, a bit short among some sales teams. Good product knowledge and the capacity to do as much listening as talking.

Started my journey to look for a new car I was excited and apprehensive. You see there are two kinds of people I do not like salesman and real estate agents . Apon arrival we where very warmly greeted by Jim happy smiley person. Straight away my defence wall went up I told Jim that I was going to be looking at 5 cars that day to make my decision. I told Jim I was interested in the Kia sportage. Jim asked me if he could show me the car and it's features he was very knowledgable answered all my questions and listened to what I wanted. I was soo impressed with his service he was not at all pushy or spinning me a yarn he knew I had done my research he encouraged me to look at the other cars I had in mind but I loved the kia. We had a lot of laughs I wanted my car ASAP being impatient and they delivered even tho Jim is a car salesman and a kiwi to boot he was marvelous and I left a happy customer so now I don't mind car salesman lol well done Jim definately would recommend you and thank you for making it a pleasurable experience.

I went for a test drive with the cerato and the sales person ,Jim Newson, has been exceptional with his way of dealing with me as a customer. there has been no pressure from him to sell me that car, instead he explained to me all the future the cerato had to offer. after two days i went back and purchased the car. again Jim has been very he;pful and i like to say that the finance manager and floor manager have been very customer oriented,. dealing with customers for 40 years my self i have nothing than praise for jim and colleagues.
The cerato model is very comfort to drive and is a very roomy car, i am and my family are very pleased and happy with this model.

Thanks again to the Kia wangara team.

From the very first enquiry through carsales.com.au we have had the most amazing service from Wangara Kia. Malcolm McCulloch the sales manager had emailed us within minutes, almost, of putting in a query, within the hour we had a phone call from Jim Newson our salesman.
Jim’s service has been impeccable from the very start. Jim understood our situation, we live 5 hours away, he understood our needs, what we were looking for and did his utmost to help us achieve our goal. He did what we asked of him and that was to stay in touch with us throughout the process. We had to wait for our car to arrive by boat, which was delayed but he kept us informed so we weren’t left wondering what was going on. Jim was even able to arrange delivery of our beautiful new car right to our doorstep! Thank You so much Jim, your amazing service has been very much appreciated, as is your sense of humour. (Carol is still considering the ‘special sticker paint job’)
As for the beautiful Techno Orange Kia Sportage, what can we say but love! love! love! Love the sporty look, love the way she handles, and love all the features. We appreciate your service.

Kind Regards
Dennis & Carol Sirrine

Hi Malcolm & Justin,

I just want to say a big THANKYOU for all your help in the recent purchase of my lovely new KIA RIO. You both made it "the best experience" I have ever had, in dealing with ANY car yard sales people....and at my age, that has been a long time!

Malcolm, thank you for your help, explanation of all my cars many features...and of course a great deal, at a great price.

Justin, thank you for your help, kindness and most of all...your extreme patience throughout the whole process, but especially at handover.

A great experience and very much appreciated.

- Gloria

Thank you Wangara Kia. Absolute pleasure to deal with the help received from Kylie and Matt was both professional and of the greatest assistance. We have brought three cars from them now and would have no hesitation in recommending Kia Wangara to everyone.

- Eve Dixon

Well I was lucky enough to win a Kia Rio in a competition! The fabulous Rita was so friendly to me, as was Malcolm who also kept me updated with details in order for me to get my new car as soon as was possible. The team at Wangara Kia totally spoilt me with chocolates and balloons and amazing service. I absolutely love my new car and I will be recommending Wangara Kia to my friends and family.
