So yesterday I decided to actually go do a deal. I have test driven the Soul enough times to know it is the car I really wanted. Anyway, I get inside the dealer with the salesman (we didn't even get to sit down and crunch numbers yet) and I ask the guy at the finance desk about the $1000 competitive bonus. I told him I've got an '08 Scion tC to trade, which according to KIA's website makes me eligible for the $1000 bonus. He told me, "Uh, sorry it's not eligible." I told him about seeing it on the website and he insisted that I was mistaken. WTF?!?!? Clearly the guy was lying or just plain dumb. For some reason this just rubbed me the wrong way. I know every dealer's different, but when they lie or just don't know their stuff (especially in finance) it makes the manufacturer itself look bad. Now I don't even want the Soul after this experience. It makes me wonder what will happen if warranty issues arise, about trade-in value down the line, etc. Now I find myself back at the drawing board looking at different makes. Maybe a Honda Fit or the new Ford Fiesta coming out. Hmmmm... can anybody here talk me back into the Soul?
