Very Honest , Transparent and helpful dealership !!!! It’s my Third Santa Fe and this dealership is the Best. I worked with Julio and I amazed with him as he is very detail oriented and explain everything in detail. My husband is very technical when it comes to car and he has technical questions and he answered very well. I will refer this dealership and Julio to friends and family .

Stivers Hyundai was the best experience I had in the Columbia area! They have great upfront pricing and dont have a bunch of extra fees! Go see Julio Merz and let him get you the deal you've been waiting for! He is very professional and was ready and willing to answer any questions or concerns day or night! Everyone their was amazing and they offer great financing as well! ????????????????????

Truly amazing dealership! Shout out to julio for being so helpful with getting the right car for me, answering all my questions and giving me useful information! Steven helped with the financial process and was also extremely helpful. Overall 10/10 and will def recommend anyone who is looking for a car to come here!

I would recommend Julio and this dealership 100 times 100 times over. I had gotten the run around from another local dealership and was about to give up, but then I was contacted by Julio. Great experience from start to finish. I'm very happy with my Tuscon, and will tell everyone I know about them!

Great Customer Service! Julio was very helpful through the whole process. Coming from an hour away, he was able to help me through E-mail,Text Messages, Videos and Calls. When I arrived at the dealership his teammate Vante was very helpful and made sure the process was smooth as well! Financing was a pleasant process also, Thank you again!

I had a wonderful vehicle trade in, and new vehicle purchase experience at this dealership! Julio worked so hard to make my unrealistic expectations come to fruition! 10/10 recommend, everyone that helped with the transactions made me feel welcomed, appreciated, and confident in the buying process!

The best car buying process I’ve ever experienced! Julio was exceptional! Kind and informative. Finance was great also. Highly recommend Stivers!

As a stranded Wisconsinite in Colombia, SC I truly appreciate all the help and care I was given at Stivers Hyundai. Julio was amazing to work with and turned a very stressful situation into a win-win for me. Thanks to Julio, Vince, and Joey I now have a new vehicle and can continue my vacation plans with confidence and reassurance. Thanks Stivers Hyundai - Life just got better!!!

Nice clean dealership, great new customer support for this customer from the entire staff, and an outstanding job from my salesman, Julio Merz. Very knowledgeable on all aspects of his job. Thanks!

Julio Merz was the best, he was very knowledgeable, personable and nice, no pressure, would recommend buying a car from him to all my friends

Wow! That's about all I know hope to say after my AMAZING experience at Stivers!! Julio was so fantastic, made the process so easy and painless, AND he was super transparent about everything going during financing allowing me to make the smartest and most informed decision possible! I drove all the way from Myrtle Beach, two and a half hours to look at a Santa Fe that I found online that my local dealer did have. Julio definitely hooked me up and I'll definitely be returning to Stivers for anything I need in the future. Thank you so much to the entire Stivers team, but ESPECIALLY to Julio, my friend you are a rockstar!

Julio Metz was so helpful and valued our time. We had a great experience and would highly recommend!!

I just bought a new 2023 California Sand Hyundai Santa Cruz from Julio Merz @ Stiver's on Clemson Road in Columbia, SC. Julio was amazing. His calm approach and consistency in keeping me appraised of the process every step of the way was appreciated. His outgoing personality is his strong suit. His follow-up is impressive. His taking extra time to take a test drive with me to demonstrate all the extras was also appreciated. IF you're looking for a new compact truck/SUV, I recommend you contact Julio.

Julio was great! Greeted us at the door when we picked up our truck and was very kind. He was so helpful with getting us our vehicle right way and was very knowledgeable about all the vehicle features. He made sure our phones were synced to Bluetooth and reviewed all the features.

Julio Merz was very helpful and made the experience of buying a new car enjoyable. I would recommend him to my family and friends if they were thinking about a new car. Furthermore, the finance department was just as helpful, so we received a better rate than what we had going into the dealership. Overall, the associates and dealership were worth buying a new vehicle from, and I would keep them in mind for future purchases. Amy

I had the best experience working with Julio at Stivers. On a whim my friend and I went to look at their inventory and we were blessed with Julio helping us that evening. We did a test drive and laughed and had a great time, a few weeks went by and I still hadn’t found THE car and everything was compared to the Kona and nothing could compare. Before the final appointment I had at other dealerships, my friend and I had made a deal that if it wasn’t even close to comparable we would go back to Stivers and see if the Kona was available and if it was that’s what would be bought. We went and probably surprised Julio but it was the best decision with the amazing help from him and Clint. They were both great with advice for me as a first time car buyer and will recommend them to friends, family, and the internet!

Great and smooth transaction. No fluff at all. See Julio for any of your Hyundai needs.

Recently purchase a new car for my daughter and Julio was most helpful to my wife and I. He was very friendly and extremely Knowledgeable about our car. Would definitely recommend Stivers Hyundai and ask for Julio.

Julio was very helpful in helping us in our purchase!!

Julio Merz was extremely helpful! He knows his cars inside and out, and guided me on all the upgrades available. The personalized videos were a nice touch! Highly recommend this dealership for your next Hyundai!

I had one of the best auto experiences ever. I only went to look and I walked away with a car. Julio Merz was very knowledgeable and so nice. He was very patient with my son while we got things together. He really made my day!! I will be recommending Stiversv to family and friends. Also, a big thank you to Zena as well!!

Julio was so outstanding! He made the whole experience fun, but he was also in tune with what I needed in a vehicle.

The customer service that I received from Julio Merz exceeded my expectations. Julio was very well rounded, personable, and knowledgeable. If you’re looking to buy a vehicle, ask for Julio Merz. You won’t be disappointed!

We were very happy with the service provided by Julio Mertz. I started a conversation with him on 3-22-23 and he kept me updated throughout the ordering process until my new Hyundai Palisade Limited arrived on 5-15-23 and we purchased it on 5-17-23. I consistently reached out to him with questions and he was always quick to respond with answers. He had a very positive attitude and kept building my confidence that we would soon get the car we wanted. Thank you.

I recently purchased our second Hyundai Tucson from Julio Merz and he was an absolute pleasure to work with. He did not pressure me to buy, but instead was glad to answer any questions that I had. I felt like he was very upfront and honest with me. I would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase from Stivers Hyundai.

I hope you know that Julio was the one of best seller person I have experienced. If it weren't for him, I would not have chosen Stiver. On my first survey, I made an error in my rating please discard that first rating.

Julio Merz did a really great job during my entire buying process. I really appreciated his personality and professionalism.

This is the second vehicle I have bought through Stivers 7 years apart. I have to admit it was a coincidence but I think it’s amazing that they had the best price on the vehicle I was looking for after searching everywhere on the internet two times in a row seven years apart. Next time I’ll skip the search and go straight to Stivers! When I do I hope Julio is still there is was a wonderful part of our experience. Julio answered all of our questions and if he wasn’t sure of an answer went and found out right away to relay the information to us. Our loan officer, Clint, also worked hard to make sure we were happy with our payment plan he was honest and not pushy about warranties and insurances. I felt very confident about the financing after working with him. We are so happy with our new SUV and the team at Stivers!

I would give Julio Merz 10 stars if it were an option. I have previously gone to Carmax because the stress of dealerships is overwhelming. Julio provided me with all of the information that I needed and changed my perception on that. The process was straightfoward and he was beyond helpful. If you are in the market for a vehicle, ask for Julio. You will not be disappointed.

Great experience purchasing our new Palisade. Julio Merz was great and kept me informed throughout the process. Finance department was low pressure and laid out additional warranty options clearly. Highly recommend. Will definitely do business with the Stivers team again.

Super happy with my new Hyundai Venue the minute I walked in I felt so cared for by all staff ! Julio is so smart and explained every detail of vehicle and was reassuring and so sweet. Zena is so intelligent and got everything taken care of with no issues, she is so kind and made the experience easy and fun !!!!
