Get your Kia Ready for Winter in Huntington, NY
The winter months have been getting colder and harsher in recent years, thanks to polar vortexes and arctic winds. You’ll want to do everything you can to be ready when temperatures plummet, and this includes steps for your Kia vehicle as well. Fortunately, Kia of Huntington has online tools, trained mechanics, and a fully loaded Service Department to help you out with all of your seasonal automotive needs.
Where Should I Start?
When snowy and icy weather roll around, you may not know where to begin. We want to start by telling you a few things you can do immediately. For starters, adjust your driving habits by applying the brakes judiciously, leaving larger gaps behind the cars in front of you, and allowing plenty of time to arrive at your destination without rushing through treacherous conditions. Next, you’ll want to equip your car with seasonal items such as cold weather wiper fluid, wiper blades that are specially designed for snow and ice, and extra hats and gloves. Don’t forget to give a quick inspection to your front and rear window defrosters. If these are not working properly, your vision will be compromised and problems can quickly arise during commutes.
Head over to Kia of Huntington’s web page to access several tools right at your fingertips. Click on our Schedule Appointment link under the Service dropdown in order to reserve a timeslot with minimal effort. The garage is open six days a week for procedures so that you will be able to find an hour that works for you. If you have questions that require an answer before we see you in person, don’t hesitate to hook up with one of our mechanics via the Ask an Adviser function. For the true do-it-yourselfer who requires a specific part in order to prepare for Jack Frost, simply tell us through the Order Parts link and we will be sure to notify you as soon as we receive it. Just let us know how we can help!
Once you’ve given your car the once-over at home, then it is time to bring it in so that our experts can provide their own skilled time and attention. Under the hood, we can take a look at your battery to make sure it has enough juice to start your ignition throughout the winter and that there are no loose or corroded connections to be corrected. Another way we can help is by topping off fluids. Oil, coolant, brake, and power steering fluids are less likely to freeze or otherwise be affected by low temperatures if reservoirs are full and functional. Next, we can examine your brake and tire pressure. Wheels are critical for gripping the road and brakes should be performing at maximum, so you’ll want to ensure both are ready for the long haul!
