Carrie Baker - 2016 NISSAN ALTIMA

Carrie Baker left a 5 star review on facebook.com

Recently purchased a 2016 Nissan Altima. I had considered some places closer to Erie where we live, but nothing remotely compared. I really wanted to do business with a smaller family owned dealership, and steer clear of the bigger corporate like ones. KitesCars did not disappoint us. They offered several different vechicle types to fit almost any budget. Chris and Tom did a fantastic job getting me into a low mileage , well maintained car. The process was smooth, and Jen did an awesome job of explaining all the paperwork , so it was easy to understand. If you're looking for a no nonsense car buying experience, were they are reasonable and capable of working with all kinds of Credit terms...I highly recommend them. They report to all credit agencies, which is excellent for those looking to build or re build credit. Unless my future car purchase is a new car off the showroom floor, I'll be buying future cars from here. Well done Kites, well done

I bought a Rendezvous from you all in February and I absolutely love my car. I couldn't be happier with the service I received and how helpful and willing everyone was to get me into a car. Its perfect for me and my family. Thank you for all your help.


I recently bought a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee (that I absolutely LOVE!) after I wrecked and totaled my car. Kites cars staff is awesome and worked with me to find a new vehicle! I would definitely come back, thank you all so much for your great customer service!


Excellent customer service! I’m so happy with my Jeep that I purchased today! I would recommend Tom and his staff to anyone looking to purchase a newer vehicle.

everyone there was very friendly and so helpful with helping me find what i wanted with a a good affordable price range!


Great place! My boyfriend and I have horrible and no credit, they made it happen for us both! We had been to many places before trying to get a new car to fit our growing family and we're running out of time. We were upfront and honest about everything, laying it out there and we got our new car! It took us a little time to get the OK from a bank and proper paperwork but with their time and help we were able to get a loan! A comment that I appreciated was them trying to get the loan in both our names so it would help improve my credit and give my boyfriend credit, killing two birds with one stone. Thank you!


This has been the easiest place I have even got a vehicle from. The sale went smoothly. I have a great reliable vehicle for my kids and myself now. Tom helped us out a lot. I definitely recommend going here first before any other place. They make sure their vehicles are clean and safe. Not many places do that. I've had my 06 Toyota 4runner for a few months now and it still is running great and clean. Thank you for great customer service. Very kind and helpful.


Love my HUMMER H2....thanks Tom and all guys, great place to buy a car


Best place to go to if u need a car. I have purchased 2 cars from them and will go back when i need a new vehicle. TheY really do care about their customers


This was by far the best car dealership to deal with. These guys are a class act. Very professional and friendly service. Every car on the lot was very nice and well services. Would recommend the guys to everyone! Also offers an in house service garage which is great. Keep up the good work guys!


Brad Ellis reviewed Kightlinger Auto Sales, Inc  5 star

These guys are rock solid. Very professional and courteous. We had a few hurdles and they blew through them no problem. Thank you guys.


John Goldsmith Awesome transaction, smooth..... What impressed me the most was... After an "out the door" price was final.... A few problems arouse with inspection... I'm guessing after $ 400 to $ 600 in parts.. They replaced the worn parts.... Fresh sticker... And not one word was mentioned about "repair costs"... Same out the door price... And believe me... With 40 plus years buying cars... I've seen it all!!! thanks Frankie and Tom!! Personal !!! .... But... Professional !!! Two Thumbs Up !!

We bought a VW New Beetle last year.  We had impaired credit, but Kightlinger took care of us and got us the loan without any hassle.  The car is great and we have had no problems with it.  The staff was very friendly and helpful.  We had been looking for a Beetle, and this was the best deal overall.  We drove from Cleveland, and it was well worth it.  I would buy from Kightlinger again....and I probably will!

My Review of Kightlinger Auto Sales:
This may sound Hokey or made up but it's absolutely true. I was turned down by four dealerships before finding Kightlingers online. I picked out a 2005 Cobalt from his "view our inventory" list and sent an Email to Tom. He got right back to me and was very understanding of my credit "issues". He was very honest about the car and financing. After a week of emails, I went to pick it up and it was a beautiful, safe automobile. I love it and want to thank Tom and Jen for going the extra mile to get me in my Chevy.

My Review of Kightlinger Auto Sales:
This is the review people want to read. I came to Knightlinger's based on an internet ad I saw. I called first and asked all the up front questions about the vehicle I wanted to look at. And then I asked what information they would need from me in order to purchase a vehicle. I live 1 1/2 hrs away from Meadville, Pa. I have life long friends in this area who had nothing but good things to say about Tom and Cortney. So I drove up, met with them and the experience was FANTASTIC! 
This is the place you want to go to! A small town family business with a big heart. Tom went over the car with me, and being used, it had a minor issue. Knightlinger's fixed the issue, had the car all clean and ready for me when I came to pick it up. Now, My credit is not the best, but Cortney worked with the bank, and I supplied the correct papers and information and we got the deal done. A few months after I had been driving the car, I noticed a strange sound, so I called Knightlingers. Tom Sr, said I should bring the vehicle in for them to look at. They were so accomodating, Tom Sr and I met half way and exchanged vehicles, allowing me to drive one of their vehicles so I would not be stuck. They fixed my car in 2 days, went over everything, and I have not had any issues since. I bought a 2005 WV Jetta, and I love it. 
I think so much of this business that I drove there today with my oldest son, while he makes his first car purchase. And soon I will be back with my youngest son to buy another car from Knightlinger Auto. This is a family business that cares.........
I have nothing but good things to say and I do recommend Knightlinger's to my friends and family.
