That’s why, she said, she got into the business. “Because I didn’t trust salesmen, I could make customers like me feel more comfortable,” said Ariel, a sales consultant with Hawkinson Kia in Matteson. “It feels better to help out that family that has been denied or that doesn’t know the process well. We want to make sure you have someone you trust.” Trust and respect are foundational pillars of the car-buying process at Hawkinson Kia, where the motto is “A customer is a an 8” or 10” Bundt Cake Orland Park 14360 S.

We build a relationship with everybody — bad credit or good credit.” The reason that is so important is because Hawkinson Kia knows buying a car is not a simple or inexpensive decision. It is important to an individual or a family and involves planning and sacrifice. “We want to encourage them to buy a car to help them, not to help us,” Ariel said. It’s a long tradition of integrity started when Robert R. Hawkinson opened a Ford dealership in Oak Lawn in 1961. The current owners of Hawkinson Kia, Bob and Jim, trained at their father’s operation and today, carry on in the same tradition in the family name. That attitude has helped Hawkinson Kia become one of the top dealers in the region. Its inventory is highlighted by new Kia vehicles like the new, award-winning Kia Tulleride SUV. “Right now it is flying in and flying out,” Ariel said. Hawkinson Kia’s service department — with ASE- and Kia-trained technicians — is tops in the area, as is the parts department, which has an inventory of more than 1 million parts. “When you are buying a vehicle, you want to trust the company can take care of your car and get you a good deal with better service,” Ariel said. “You don’t have to worry about that here.” Submitted by Hawkinson Kia, 5501 Miller Circle Drive, in Matteson.
