Las Vegan buys 2013 turbo Optima from Findlay Kia

As a longtime customer of Findlay Automotive Group, native Las Vegan Linda Harris stayed with what she knew when she started looking for a new vehicle about six months ago.

Now the owner of a turbo 2013 Kia Optima purchased from Findlay Kia at 5325 W. Sahara Ave., Harris said she has several reasons for staying under the Findlay umbrella.

“I bought my previous car from another Findlay dealership,” said the 1969 graduate of Rancho High School and a retired customer service representative with the North Las Vegas finance department. “I like how I had been treated by the other dealership.”

Harris said she was intrigued by the warranty offered by Kia along with the newly designed Optima.

Each new Kia comes with a 10-year, 100,000-mile engine warranty along with a five-year, 60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. She also purchased the additional maintenance warranty.

“I live in Henderson, but Findlay Kia has so much to offer,” she said, adding that the purchase and future service visits were worth the drive. “I like the fact that I don’t have to wait as long at Findlay Kia. I walk right in, they take the car and that’s it. … it’s quick and easy. I was very happy with the sales process and my sales consultant. He was very nice and there was no high pressure with him.”

Another factor in her selection of Findlay Kia was that she gets lifetime car washes.

Although Harris has not taken any long trips in her new Optima, she has plans.

“I’m going to California in the near future,” she said. “I’m already getting about 26 miles to the gallon around town and should get more than 30 miles to the gallon on the highway.

Findlay Kia is part of Findlay Automotive Group, which was founded more than 50 years ago by the late Pete Findlay and is run by his son, Cliff Findlay. The group includes 28 dealerships in Utah, Nevada, Arizona and Idaho.
