Startin Kia Redditch wins Customer Experience Award

11 January 2024

Here at Startin Kia, Redditch, we are starting the year in celebration following the win of a Kia 2023 Customer Experience Award.

The annual Kia Dealer Excellence Awards celebrate the best dealerships in the UK, covering excellent customer experience and service, with customer satisfaction, sales, online Reputation score and quick responses to customer queries all taken into account. The Customer Experience Awards certificates are only presented to the top 20-performing dealers.

Kia had a record-setting performance in 2023 once again, with 107,765 sales, having sustainably built growth throughout the year. With any growth, it’s vitally important to continually raise the bar and put customers first, which I’m proud to say our dealers have done. They’ve provided a quality and consistent customer experience, whether for sales or service, for both new and returning customers
