Chris Bostick I am a full time nursing student and need a dependable car to drive back & forth. I have a credit score around 600. I don't want to waste my time & drive an hour to get the run around and can only afford around $200 a month you think you could help me out? Kia HAS come a long way. Thanks for your time & just ignore all of these hateful comments. I'm sure you would do everything you can to help people out! Thanks again
Just saw this post. I would be happy to do whatever I can to help you. Please call my Franklin store and ask for my administrative assistant (Brittney) she will get you in direct contact with me and I'll make sure you are taken good care of.

Sincerely

This is very good information for anyone purchasing a vehicle, regardless of where you are buying it. If you don't like the deal, simply say no and walk away.

Thanks. It's a shame that there are folks who struggle to put a cohesive thought into words and yet are allowed to be so vulgar in here .

Carnival Kia is a rip off, plain and simple. For only $149 a down and $149 a month. $149 is only for the first 3 to 6 months than the payment balloons to $350 to $500 a month and for 80 months. You end paying $36,000 for a Kia that is only worth $12,000 to start with and less than $2000 after 80 months. Amazing that anyone buys from them, period.

Thank you so much I will do just that!!!
Don't do it. They will cause you to go bankrupt. You need to listen to Dave Ramsey, like today. You will end up owing more than $30,000 for a crappy KIA. You will never get ahead buying from Carnival Kia. NEVER!

Its amazing that you simple minded people are upset that when you finance a car and you have bad credit you will end up paying dearly.. Nobody forces you idiots to do these deals. You are just use to getting trhings for free from the Government. Quit hating on Chris because he is out hustling ever day making money while your lazy butts are at home...

Get some facts...do you see any factories going up that are building American cars or parts? I live in Ky. in a town of about 8000, with two factories making Japanese car parts...both factories are begging for help because they are working twelve hour, seven day a week shifts and the lazy American slobs wont last long doing that!

Chris and Family, First of all what happened between youn and your wife is no bodies business. It happens everyday in Nashville. Just because you are famous they are making a big deal of it. Every family has problems. Since 2002 I have bought 3 KIAS from your Madison dealership. I have a 2007 Sportage I drive now. I LOVE KIA. But I must say I went with my grandson to get his first car He was 21 had worked since he was 16 graduated and was now a certified nurse tech at a nursing home. We had went to our bank they told us how mush he qualified for I was co-signing.I took him to Rivergate KIA and a sales lady named LINDA (this was a year ago) was so rude. He told her what bank we had and she said she called and they said we had not been there. My grandson is 6 ft 3 she tried to put him in a RIO He couldn't even fit in it. She said that was the only car we could get.I must say I got very ugly wih the woman. I called my bank and verified we had been there and how much they would finance. She got mad that I proved her wrong. We left. Went to Rivergate Toyota and in one hour my grandson was pulling out wth his car. It was a 2008 HHR. He is very level headed and now works 2 jobs. His car is almost paid off. He makes 2 payments a month. I love KIAS but after the last experience I may have to go elsewhere.And it takes SO long to get everything done.But anyway I wish you and your family well. So you had a family spat it is no big deal.I hope it all works out for you. I don't see you on TV anymore. I loved your commercials. And when I bought all 3 of my KIAS I did not get to see you before I left.LOL HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY GOD BLESS

Chris Bostick is a scam artist hiding behind religion. That is a classic move, especially in the South. People feel all warm and fuzzy when you show your family and talk about your faith; however, Kia Carnival is at the very top of worst dealerships!!! MVA is a scam! Do not shop at Carnival Kia! Do not "come see me before you leave" (Chris Bostick). Do not try to deal with them, if they are trying to rape you the second you get to the dealership there is no reason to give them a dime of your money! Chris please answer! If you are truly Christian you would remove the MVA from ALL your cars. What a rip off! The Franklin Aldermen will not put up with your deceptive ways. You are going to be kicked out one way or another from Franklin TN!!!!!!!!!!
The AMV sticker is a BAIT AND SWTICH SCAM, MISREPRESENTATION OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF CONTRACT. WE WANNA SEE YA RETURN A KIA. We will post a You Tube Video of us returning a KIA using a TOW TRUCK 9-6-13 at 8:40pm at Carnival KIA Franklin with the Franklin Police Department present at MAPCO next door and the police at the dealership.

I worked there for years it is not owned by chris bostick he is a minority owner it is owned by greenway ford in florida thats both stores. It was a great place to work until bostick took over, they steal from employees, their employee morale is so low. If they steal from the people who work there imagine what they do to customers. These people have no morals at all. The service department sells things to customers not required by the kia maintenance schedule I.E. transmission flushes with moc chemicals that kia does not want used. They give the car business a bad name. Believe me or not but I know from expierience. Also they had enviromental packages on their addendums(window stickers) that were never put on vehicles they took these off when a former employee said he would report them and they just changed it to a adjusted market value i think it came to $2495.00 added to the price of the car. I apologize to those people that I sold this crap to when I worked there. There ar a lot of good dealerships in nashville these kia stores are not one of them.

Or you could come to a new car dealership and deal directly with me "the owner" should you ever need any help with your car, I and the dealership will still be there to take care of you. I am part of a larger group than most people know about. Our group has a total of 28 new car dealerships here in the U.S. as well as 5 Ford dealerships in China. 13 of our dealerships are Kia, which makes us the largest volume Kia retailer in the U. S.
Everyone is welcome to make their own decisions about what to buy and from whom. It saddens me to see that others feel the need to say bad things about me, or unkind things abouty family. We are truly good people and I invite you to come meet us in person before you post something that is cruel or untrue. We have feelings and unkind words said about us sting just as much as if someone was talking behind your back.
Bless you all. Chris Bostick

<quoted text> come on, everybody knows that the price of the car has only one factor to do with monthly payments. We sell the car. I am NOT a bank. If you are making payments, the monthly payments includes the intrest that the BANK charges in addition to almost 10% tax the the STATE charges (and the dealer keeps zero) plus tag and title With all the banking laws and truth in lending laws, intrest rates are set by YOU the customer (based on your credit) the other thing that people make such a mistake about is how to figure the dollars that intrest rate calculates to. For simple example, is your loan amount is $10,000 and your rate is 10% and the TERM of the loan is 6 years. Your intrest paid "to the bank" is not $1,000 (which is 10% of $10,000) the rate is calculated on the unpaid balance of the loan amount. In that expample, you will havenpaid THOUSANDS of dollars by the time you pay off the loan. Should you have really bad credit and the BANK sets your rate at some crazy high amount (because of the risk based on YOUR credit) the total amount of the payments can and will be as much,or more, than the price of the car.
I truly in my heart of heart wish our customers could pay cash for their car. We, my dealership, make the same amount on the sale price of the car AND you, the customer, wouldn't have to pay all that money, TO THE BANK, in intrest. Do you know how much sooner you would be able to come back into one of my dealerships and trade the first car you bought for another!!!
Kia has come a long way and I have started advertising the benefits and quality of the car more than I did 6 years ago when I moved my family to Nashville. I live here in this "big, little town" we call Nashville. I can't imagine living anywhere else. I enjoy going out in our wonderful city with my wife and kids and never will I do something or treat someone in s way that would make mennot want to be recognized we we are out. What you see is what you get, I don't care what someone does for a living or how much money they do or do not have, if you approach me I will treat everyone the same. I promise there is not a level of life that I can't relate to. In 1984 I was a salesperson in Fort Lauderdale FL (living in a 14 foot high cube moving van) working for a dealer, that I had no relation to, and have been working hard to support my wife and family ever since. More than anything, when my children are out in public or at their "public" school they attend, I never never want them to be ashamed of who they are or who their father is.
I wish the best to everyone. If you have a dream, live like you have already achieved it (you will start to do things just by accident to make your dream come true). If you don't have a dream, start believing in yourself and reach for the sky. We were all created by God and he loves all of us the same (just as I love all my children the same).
I'll jump off my soap box now.
Blessings,
Chris Bostick
