Become part of the Hawkinson Kia family

Integrity, service are priorities

at Matteson dealership

There is a stigma attached

to car salespeople,

and Ariel Rogers used to

believe in it.

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

customer for life.”

At most dealerships, Ariel

said, the customer hears

“No” a lot — “no, we can’t

do that” or “no, you won’t

find that anywhere.”

“Customers feel disrespected,”

she said. “Here

it’s more gentle and we

treat you like family. 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.”
