My Review of All Star Kia of Baton Rouge:

My experience was very positive and I drove away in a new Kia Soul. I love it. Mike Cates was the young man that helped. I went back yesterday to get my inspection sticker and my blue tooth set up. Mike was again very, very helpful and took care of everything for me. Thank you for such a positive experience.

Back to School for Your Car Too!

Back to School Road Sign with Dramatic Clouds and Sky.

Although it may still feel like summer time outside, back-to-school time is right around the corner. August is always a busy month for parents and kids. Parents are trying to squeeze in last minute vacations and the kids are wanting to play with their friends all day! One item that is not usually on the top of the to-do list when heading back to school is your vehicle maintenance. Whether you’re attending high school, heading back to college or you’re the chauffeur for your family, your vehicle is going to need a little TLC before heading back to school and work!

Check the Tires

Check the tires for uneven tread wear, nails or other potential hazards. One easy way to check tread depth is inserting a penny into a groove—if any part of Abe Lincoln’s head is obscured, you have enough tread. Check the pressure on each tire with a gauge when they’re cold (not driven). Follow the vehicle manufacturer’s suggested pressure, which is located on most vehicles on a sticker inside the driver’s door, center console, glove compartment lid or in the owner’s manual. Also, make sure the spare tire is inflated and a jack, lug wrench and jumper cables are in the trunk!

Fill-Up the Tank before Empty

Few drivers know that when fuel levels drop below half tank, the remaining gas is more easily evaporated.  Another issue arises when running on a near empty gas tank: the fuel pump will suck up residue that collects in the bottom of the gas tank which will cause fuel pump and fuel system failure.  Save money and improve vehicle fuel economy by ensuring the gas never falls below half tank. This tip is especially important for driving students who are unfamiliar with their tank capacity or average fuel economy.

Up-To-Date

Before your college-bound kiddo hits the road, make sure their vehicle has an up-to-date inspection sticker, car registration, driver’s license and an insurance card. At most colleges, these are the things your child will need in order to purchase a parking tag to be able to park on campus. This may be tedious to check and update, but these are vital things in order to send your child on the road to college!

Making sure you and your college-bound kid’s vehicles are prepared and running smoothly before the hustle and bustle of school starts back up is very important. Doing routine maintenance on your vehicle will not only ensure your safety on the road, but it will also prolong the life of your vehicle! Make sure to schedule a service appointment with one of our certified technicians that will be able to service your vehicle and get you back on the road! Doing routine maintenance on your vehicle will not only ensure your safety on the road, but it will also prolong the life of your vehicle!

Featured Vehicle – 2017 Kia Niro

ASK - 2017 KIa Niro

All Star Kia of Baton Rouge loves keeping our customers in the loop about anything and everything related to vehicles. Before you know it, all the 2017 models will be introduced and we will be saying goodbye to the 2016 models. We would like to introduce you to the 2017 Kia Niro!

Combining hybrid efficiency with a sleek body that boasts crossover traits, Kia introduces the Kia Niro as a small hybrid crossover. The attractive appearance with wide and low proportions finished off with a Tiger Nose Grille, will make the Kia Niro look like a car and not a hybrid.

Kia has designed this vehicles to be lightweight yet strong. Over 53% of the Niro is designed from advanced high-strength steel.

Its Atkinson Cycle 1.6-L four-cylinder gas engine pairs with an electric motor for an output of 146 horsepower and 195 pounds of torque. Its estimated fuel efficiency is a combined 50 mpg.

Kia has the designed the Niro to be extra comfortable. With higher seating positions and denser seat cushion, it will provide optimal long-distance support. And to keep the cabin quiet, Kia has built the Niro to have stiffer suspension bushings, more sound insulation, an acoustic windshield and dampers inside the steering wheel hubs to minimize vibration.

The all new Kia Niro will come with the latest technology and safety features including:

  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Blind-Spot Monitoring
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Standard UVO3 System with a 7-inch touchscreen including Apple CarPlay and Android Play

One of Kia’s newest features, which will also be included in the Niro, is the Eco-Driver Assistance System. This system is aimed to maximize fuel mileage by coaching the driver about when to coast and when to brake. The Predictive Energy Control uses the navigation and cruise control systems to anticipate geographical changes on the road. This determines when it’s optimal to recharge the battery and when it’s better to apply stored energy towards the wheels.

The official release date of the 2017 Kia Niro has yet to be announced. However, it is estimated that Kia will release the Niro in late 2016 or early 2017.

Spring Cleaning Your Kia

ASK

Spring is approaching quickly! We know how eager you are to start spring cleaning your home, but don’t forget to spring clean your Kia! Giving your car a good scrub inside and out not only protects your investment, but it’ll make your vehicle a nicer place for those beautiful spring days! We have complied some tips and tricks to help you give your Kia a clean start to spring!

Freshening the Interior

Start by cleaning out all the trash, to-go cups, and any other debris you have in your Kia. Make sure to slide your seats forward and backwards to get every piece of trash. Thoroughly vacuum out your Kia including your trunk. Then organize what is left. Next will be to deep clean your Kia’s interior. If dirt has embedded itself in the textures of your vinyl, some detail scrubbing with an old toothbrush will do the trick! The old toothbrush can come in handy to clean the crumbs and dirt out of those pesky seams in your seat cushions. If you have any shoe scuff marks or sticky food stains on any vinyl or leather parts of your Kia, take a Magic Eraser to those and they’ll disappear! Once you’ve got your Kia completely detailed and squeaky clean, put a few dryer sheets under your cars seats to have a nice clean scent in your Kia!

Cleaning the Exterior

Now that the interior of your Kia is nice and clean, it is time to take care of the exterior of your Kia. Most people jump right into washing their vehicle’s paint, but try cleaning your tires and rims before washing your vehicle’s paint. The tires and rims are often the dirtiest part of the vehicle and as you spray them off, dirt can get on the paint of your vehicle. So spray and clean your tires, rims and undercarriage first before you move on to the rest of the vehicle!

Make sure you have a cleaner formulated specifically for cars. Once you’ve mixed the cleaner and water, you can go one step further and fill a second bucket with clean rinse water. Use the clean bucket of water to rinse off your wash mitt often. Rinsing off your wash mitt often helps remove most of the road grit and helps prevent scratching your vehicle. When you are finished washing your Kia, make sure to wash your mitt in the washing machine to ensure that is it completely clean. Make sure when rinsing your vehicle off, go from top to bottom. This ensures that the soap is running downwards and will help you clean it off better. Dry off your Kia with a micro fiber towel or a squeegee/water blade. Then you can move on to waxing, cleaning your headlights with a headlight restoration kit, and then lastly, cleaning your glass. Make sure you are leaving your glass till last! Use a cleaner with no ammonia and a microfiber cloth to scrub both the inside and outside of your windows.

Although this is a few hours of work, detailing and caring for your Kia yourself can save you thousands each year! Further, it protects and lengthens the life of your automobile investment.
