Where Will Your Hyundai Take You this Spring?

Whether you have an SUV and are towing a small camper or you are in a sedan or coupe and planning on staying in a hotel, you’ll have a great trip in your new Hyundai.

Dale Hollow Lake

Pack up for a week and head out to Dale Hollow Lake in Tennessee. The lake is large and you’ll find many places to stay on the lake. Sunset Marina in Monroe, Tennessee gives you plenty of things to do for the week. You can either stay at a cabin or tow your camper with you.

Taking Care of Your Vehicle

Whether you have a brand new vehicle from one of the Superior Group dealerships, you just bought a used vehicle from Mike Albert Direct or you have a vehicle that is a few year – or more – older, you have to take care of the vehicle if you want it to last. This means the interior, the exterior and the mechanical components.

Exterior Care

The elements, especially sun and hail, will damage the exterior of your vehicle. You can minimize Mother Nature’s destruction if you care for the exterior of the vehicle. Mud, snow and salty slush also take their toll on your vehicle’s frame and paint. Giving the exterior a good wash every month and waxing the paint at least every couple months helps to increase the life of the paint, including keeping it from fading.

Interior Care

Keep the carpets and upholstery clean so that ground-in dirt won’t destroy them. Also, dashboards tend to crack from the sun. If you use the appropriate conditioner for the dashboard material plus keep a reflective sun shade in the windshield, you’ll save the interior from fading as fast and from cracking. If you or your family drop crumbs or spill anything, clean it up as soon as possible. The acids in some food and drink can damage the materials and fabrics.

Mechanical Care

While keeping your vehicle clean and protected helps keep the value up by maintaining the “curb appeal,” taking care of the mechanics is most important. Bring your vehicle in to our service department for the recommended scheduled maintenance including oil changes, tune ups, timing belt replacement, fluid checks and other checks. Our service technicians will let you know if something needs to be replaced such as a belt that is worn or worn brake pads.

The technicians will also check your fluids and let you know if you have any leaks that need to be repaired. Leaks should be repaired as soon as possible as low fluids will damage parts; and in the case of low oil, the engine could suffer considerable damage.

Call Mike Albert Direct

Call our service department at Mike Albert Direct to make an appointment to service your vehicle or to repair any body damage.

Kia Advanced Technology

When you are in the market for a new vehicle, one of the things you may look for in a specific make is what type of technology is available in that manufacturer’s models. When you choose Kia you’ll get lots of advanced technology – in many cases, for less money. Visit Superior Kia to test drive one or more models on our lot and you’ll be able to compare prices and trim levels to find the best deal.

User Friendly Technology

Just because the technology is more advanced, that doesn’t have to mean it’s hard to use or hard to learn. Kia gave all of its advanced technology features – convenience features, entertainment, comfort and more – user friendliness. Technologies include features such as the UVO infotainment and telematics system, ventilated front seats, voice recognition technology and even the back-up warning system.

Advanced Technology Not Just for Luxury Vehicles Anymore

Non luxury models such as the 2015 Kia Forte, a compact sedan, features advanced technology; and you’ll find that prices are very competitive with other manufacturers’ vehicles in the same classes – and they may not have the advanced technology you’ll find in a Kia. When you choose the Forte, you’ll definitely find advanced features that are not found in any other compact sedan in the Forte’s class including audio controls mounted on the steering wheel and SiriusXM radio, power windows, Bluetooth and heated power door mirrors – all found in the 2015 Kia Forte LX.

In the higher trim levels, in addition to features not found in other makes in this class, you can also order an optional Premium Package to get heated front and rear seats, a power sunroof, a 10-way adjustable driver’s seat and a heated steering wheel.

The Next Level

UVO, Kia’s voice-activated infotainment system, is found in Kia models, but the 2015 Kia Cadenza takes it to the limit with the UVO eServices telematics suite, which is enabled by a free smart phone app. Get navigation, conveniences features and diagnostic features without subscription fees.

This is just a few of the things Kia has up its sleeve. Stop by Superior Kia today to test drive one of our models and to learn more about the advanced technology you can find in a Kia.

What Will You Dangle from Your Rear View Mirror?

There are a lot of fun things out there that you can dangle from your interior rear-view mirror, but some choices are better than others. Here we’ll look at the aesthetic and practical reasons to hang whatever you like from the mirror on your windshield.

Fuzzy Dice

Fuzzy dice are a classic. How’d they catch on? Who knows. Kind of weird when you think about it, right? Why are the dice so big and fuzzy? In any event, fuzzy dice are fun, but they can prove a distraction. If you always find yourself eyeing them while driving around, then you may want to consider getting a smaller pair or replacing them with something else.

Air Fresheners

Air fresheners come in just about every scent imaginable and you should be able to pick one up at the new car dealerships in Cincinnati. From pine to peppermint to pepperoni pizza. Air fresheners can make your car smell fresh or like some fond childhood memory. Some people prefer to scent their car with fine cigars or a girlfriend’s perfume/boyfriend’s cologne, but the classic air-freshener is a great way to do it in a classic, iconic sort of way.

Beads, Tassles and Chains

Anything ropey, stringy or just really long and dangly can add a festive look to your car, just make sure that it’s not going to whip around and hit you in the face on those tight corners. Give your dangler a test drive in a parking lot and see how it reacts. If it flies around wildly then it may be a liability when you’re out on the road.

Finding the decor to suit your car and your personality shouldn’t be difficult, it’s just a matter of finding what works for you. Whether that means a pleasant little scented pine tree or a Halloween decoration you bought last October, it’s all about finding something you like, and that doesn’t distract you from the road. No matter how cool your rear-view hanger may look, driving safe should take precedence.
