WE ARE #LOUISIANASTRONG!

Louisiana Strong Graphic

The flooding in South Louisiana that has taken place on August 13th has impacted thousands of people right here in our home town. Thousands of Louisianans are coming together to help strangers evacuate their homes and bring them to shelters. Families have been ripped apart, homes have been flooded to the rooflines with water and cars have been flooded and lost in 10 foot waters. But this will not stop the citizens of Louisiana. We will come out stronger than ever all while helping each other out more than ever. Here at All Star, we pride ourselves in supporting our local communities and truly believe that together we the people of Louisiana are an “ALL STAR FAMILY.”

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!

Stay Organized

The cars of busy college students and parents with children in school often resemble cargo trucks after the start of school. Books, sports equipment, gym shoes, etc. often find a permanent home in vehicles. So stay organized! There are a number of bags and organizers which can help maximize the space in your trunk. Carve out some space just for your safety equipment so you will always be prepared!

Check the Lights

This is a good time to get your kids involved in the preventive maintenance checklist review. Have him or her get in the car and turn on the headlights, turn signals and emergency flashing lights as you walk around the vehicle to make sure they are working. Check the brake lights by having him or her press the brake pedal, too. Vehicles can have many different types of bulbs and they have varying lifespans, according to Firestone. Inspect your vehicle regularly to ensure your lights are working properly.

Be Prepared

Make sure the vehicle has basic safety equipment including jumper cables, a pair of gloves, a flashlight with extra batteries, washer fluid and other items. A pre-packaged auto safety kit is also a great choice. They are compact and provide everything you need. Some other good ideas include granola bars, a sunshade, towels, blankets and bottled water.

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!

Test Drive Tips from All Star Kia East

ASKE

When you are considering purchasing a new vehicle, one of the first things you will do is take it for a test drive, but do you know exactly what you should look for on your test drive? Check out these 5 test drive tips from All Star Kia East to ensure you get the most out of your next test drive!

Test Drive Each Candidate

Drive each of your potential candidates so you can make a proper comparison. Take note of how the vehicles drive differently, engine sound or how they handle when driving.

Take your time!

Never rush, it’s always best to allow time for you to get comfortable and feel at ease so you can really image yourself in the vehicle each day.

 

Look at all of your Options

Because certain options and powertrains can greatly alter the feel of a vehicle, it’s important to drive the particular model and trim level you intend to purchase. This is very important to drive the particular trim level you intend on purchasing to see how that trim level drives and feels in comparison to a different model and different trim level

Safety First!

Remember to review the vehicle’s safety features, such as the number of airbags, active-safety electronics, and adjustable seatbelts. You salesperson will be able to answer all of these questions for you and probably mention some features that may interest you about the vehicle.

Connect your Phone to the Kia UVO Navigation System

Bring your phone along and connect it to the Kia UVO to get the full experience to how the entertainment system will function on a day-to-day basis. Try making a call, changing the radio station, adjusting the air conditioning system, etc. to feel the ease of using the vehicle.

These are just a few things to remember when test driving a vehicle that you are interested in purchasing. Be sure to always ask your Sales Person and Sales Manager any questions or concerns that you may have. Here at All Star Kia East, we want to make sure you are completely satisfied with your vehicle purchase. We are readily available and look forward to helping you make that decision.

Summer Heat Tech Tips

ASDCJR & ASKE

We all know how blistering hot it can get in Louisiana during the summer time, and getting into a hot car is never fun. You burn your legs on your hot leather seats, you feel like you need to wear oven mitts to touch your steering wheel and your dripping sweat before you even start your car! Summer can be tough on cars, especially during high temperatures when heat can destroy batteries and stress the cooling system and tires. As a precaution, these vehicle components should be checked periodically during summer to help avoid breakdowns and car problems. All Star Kia East is here with some awesome summer tech tips to make sure your car is in perfect condition for the hot Louisiana weather.

Cars are designed to run hot, but there’s a limit to how hot they should run. If an engine gets too hot, it can cause moving metal parts to melt and fuse together, causing a variety of internal problems for your engine. Luckily, all modern cars have an ingenious cooling system that uses a chemical coolant, called antifreeze, and a series of pumps, hoses, thermostats and fans to keep the car at its optimal running temperature. But any problems with this system – low coolant levels, cracked hoses, lose or broken belts, a leak in the radiator or even a loose or missing radiator cap can cause your car to overheat and break down.

  • The summertime is tough on cooling systems. Sitting in traffic on a hot day is one of the quickest ways to overheat your car. This is because there’s no air flowing across the engine to help keep it cool. A well-tuned cooling system can take long idles in hot weather, but if you have low coolant levels or a busted fan belt, your engine temperature is going to go up, and fast.
  • Check under the hood and make sure that your coolant levels are fine. The general rule is to flush your radiator and add new coolant at least every two years. Flushing the radiator is done with a special chemical that cleans debris and build-up on the inside of the radiator. For summer driving, coolant should be added as a 50/50 mixture of antifreeze and water. You can even buy premixed coolant so you don’t have to bother with the measurements!

Parking your vehicle directly in the sun’s heat is not the best option, but sometimes it’s the only option. To help keep your vehicle cool against the heat, a sunshade is a great investment! They are designed for your front and back windows. They look like aluminum foil stretched across the inside of your windshield. This will help to keep your legs from burning when you sit on those leather seats.

All the pollen, dirt, and rain during the summer makes for a dirty windshield. You’re going to want to make sure your windshield wipers are in mint condition. They should be replaced every six months to a year, depending on the brand. You’ll know when to replace them when they start to squeak, chatter, skip, smear or streak reducing your driving visibility. This causes a safety hazard to others and yourself. If you are encountering these problems please come by All Star Kia East or call (855) 981-1838, our service team would be happy to help you out.

She probably already knows this but with her busy schedule, when does she have the time to detail it? So on Mother’s Day, take your Mom’s car and detail if for her! You can either pay someone to else to detail it, or you can gather the kids and make it a family event. Either way, we know she will appreciate a clean car!

National Car Care Month reminds you to take care of any issues that may have occurred or been ignored during winter. Spring time is filled with sunshine, some afternoon showers and lots of pollen. Make sure your Kia’s tires are rotated, balanced and in good condition for those wet roads. Deep potholes aren’t friendly to shocks and struts. An inspection to determine wear or leaks can alleviate bigger issues down the road. Also having your wheels properly aligned after a season of tough conditions can help keep you on the road in a safe direction. Also make sure your windshield wiper blades are being replaced every 6-12 months to avoid streaking on your windshield.

With all of that pollen in the air, your Kia’s air filter can get clogged up pretty quickly. Make sure you are routinely checking and changing it to ensure optimal air flow is being produced. When it comes to your Kia’s safety, the brake system is at the top of the list. Making sure your brakes are working properly before you head out on those slick roads or long summer road trips will ensure for a safe and comfortable ride! Brakes are a normal wear item for any car and eventually they’re going to need to be replaced. For routine maintenance, check your vehicle’s braking system at least once a year. A thorough inspection should include brake lining wear, brake fluid level, rotor thickness, condition of hoses and brake lines, brake and dash warning lights, as well as taking the car for a test drive to detect other potential brake system problems.
