#LEMONKIA – One Customer’s Journey (Part III)

PART III: GLORY, THEN DOUBT, THEN GLORY.

I ease myself into the comfy crosshatched buttery leather seats, feeling promptly like a combination of an Old Navy-wearing Beyonce and racecar driver in this perfect vehicle.  Jetsons-level console of remarkable navigation and Bluetooth and SIRIUS magic. Panoramic sunroof.  Wait – a MOON roof? I feel like I’m in the open air!  As someone who doesn’t know much about cars, I still know a truly gorgeous one when I see one.  I don’t know much about Tom Hardy either, but, like, I have eyes.

We decide to go and take the Turbo out for a test drive.  HOLY MOLY.  Scoot over, Beyonce, Danica is taking over now – to the left, to the left, girlfriend.  

To quote the dearly departed Prince per a song that was definitely not about cars but works here anyway, the ride is so smooth, you must be a limousine.   It was!  The turns, I took sharply, but with grace.  The power, extraordinary!  The side mirrors light up and recoil like a futuristic spaceship car mirrors would.  Something I had never felt in the five cars I had previously had is this equal parts smooth but remarkable power under your foot and in your steering.  The Kia Optima won my heart with an immediate ‘wowza’.  I popped my new best friend into park, and got a little bit worried at its wondrousness.  I look at my husband, who is already selecting a color and he requires the chrome rims, of course you want that, babe.  I shifted into standing in my own Purple Rain of doubt.  This car is way too nice; we can’t be practical and afford something like this. Even my husband looks a little skeptical.  We know we’re rockstars deep down, but does rockstar self-knowledge work with car leasing or purchasing?  Baby, do we have enough class?  Can we get our dream car?

Oh – but we can!

Amazing lease deals awaited us and the price for a vehicle of this caliber is shockingly reasonable.  We selected one with all of the bells and whistles and glided through the leasing process with the deal, which felt nothing like a ‘deal’, because there was calm universality of pricing and a great instinctive vibe of trust.  I am pretty sure I’m inviting my sales and service people to my birthday party this year.  You just know good folks when you meet them.

#LEMONKIA – One Customer’s Journey (Parts I & II)

PART I: THE HUNT.

When my husband first said, “Let’s check out the new Kia Optima! I think you’ll LOVE it!”, I’ll be candid – I was lukewarm. I’ll LOVE it? It’s just a car. I love naps, I love the beach, I love when I take that very first sip of a flawless iced coffee. But excitement bombs over finding an S.O.S. (Same Old Sedan) were not exactly going off. I resist – but, but I’ve only watched seven episodes of House of Cards today SO NOW I HAVE TO GET TO THE END. He yanked me off of my weekend land of couch – sweet, sweet couchville USA – and off we went. It is going to be a long day for both of us as I do Frank and Claire Underwood impressions with ring taps on the dashboard for the next few hours, but at least we might find a new car!
