All Star Kia of Baton Rouge’s Winter Vehicle Tips

1

The cooler temperatures are just around the corner. For us, that means we need to practice safe driving during these cooler months, and equally as important, our vehicle maintenance. Is your car winter ready? Well if you are unsure, here are a few tips from the All Star Family to keep your car in optimum condition this winter season.

Being able to see in conditions when there may be a little ice on the road is imperative. When was the last time your windshield wiper blades were replaced? Wiper blades are usually good for six months to one year, so be sure to change your blades if you are due.  Also, fill up your windshield reservoir with windshield fluid, because plain water would not do this time of year, as it freezes.

Our vehicle’s belts and hoses need to be checked for wear and tear from the harsh months. It is imperative to have your belts and hoses routinely checked to ensure your vehicle is running properly.

Putting these tips into practice will save you a lot of headache this season. Your vehicle needs a little more TLC during the colder months than summer. Come in and have your vehicle inspected by one of our certified technicians! Don’t dread winter this holiday season! Schedule your service appointment with us today!

All Star Kia’s Tailgating Tips

Tailgating season has finally arrived! Tailgating is a fun American tradition that has its own fans outside of football. You should be able to express yourself and make your tailgating get-together an unique experience for you and your guests. We at All Star have gathered some great tips that can give you an edge on game-day to take home the win!

As we are transitioning to fall for this football season, we still want you to be aware of the sun’s powerful rays. Lets’ kick things off by mentioning shade is your friend on game-day. You can bring a beach umbrella to latch on to your cooler. An umbrella mount can be found at retailers near you. This is a genius idea, especially if your arrived late to the scene and weren’t able to get a spot near shade.

Don’t forget to bring chairs and more chairs. Sitting on the cooler is not always fun. It doesn’t provide back support, and you or your guests will be getting up a lot to accommodate those who need to quench their thirst. Get a head count, and coordinate with your guests on how many chairs they should bring if you do not have enough chairs to accommodate them. All in all, your tailgate on your vehicle will definitely be used for other things, so don’t solely rely on that.

78913

When clearing out your vehicle for your tailgating items, make sure you leave the jumper cables. There is nothing worst than packing up ready to close out the day from a successful tailgating get-together, and your vehicle not starting. Your battery may go dead from a number of reasons, like playing music from the car speakers.

These few tips will definitely elevate your next tailgating get-together! The small things matter when planning the perfect pre-game day party. If you are looking to take your tailgating lifestyle to the next level, we suggest following these few tips. You will be glad you did!
