This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 110 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this Kia Motor Co phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like Kia Motor Co staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

Calling this Kia Motor Co Customer Number

This phone number is used for managing existing accounts with Kia Finance America, so it's not going to be very useful to you unless you already have an account with Kia. When I called, the automated system warned that it was experiencing higher call volumes than usual and strongly recommended that I go online to resolve my question if possible.

After that message, I was asked if I was calling about my personal account, to which I said no. I was then asked if I was calling about a business account, which was also a no. I was then told I would have to speak to a representative for assistance and asked if I would like to be connected to one.

I said I would, and despite the warning, I was almost instantly connected with a representative. I said I had seen an ad for a Kia Forte with a 2.9% APR and wanted to know how long that promotion would be available. She said that she did not have any of that information and would be unable to answer my question, adding that she was only able to help with finance-related concerns. Without an account, there was nothing more that she could do for me, so I thanked her for her time and ended the call.

Overall, I wasn't very impressed with the service I received on this call. I understand that Kia wants this number to be used only for finance-related problems and would like to offer its existing customers that help, but I believe that Kia's customer service representatives should at least have some working knowledge of what's going on with the company.

Rather than say that she can't provide any assistance, a representative should be able to say that she can transfer a caller to someone else in the company who might be able to help or provide a number or website that could get the caller the information they need. That would be far more effective than simply saying that she couldn't help with the problem.

On the positive side, the call was incredibly quick and simple to navigate. Despite the warnings of a long wait time, I had no issue getting connected to a representative. I tried this call twice to check if the first time was a fluke, and my wait time was negligible on both occasions. By the time the system had completed the automated message, I was already connected with a representative.

If I needed assistance with finance, I'd probably use this number. But if I only needed information, I'd look elsewhere.
