Read These Windshield Wiper Maintenance Tips Before Winter Begins

windshield wipersOne of the best ways you can prepare yourself for the snow and slush of the winter roads this year is by making sure your windshield wipers are in top condition, giving you the most visibility possible.

Check out these windshield wiper maintenance tips to get you started:

  • Clean your windshield wipers regularly, perhaps even every time you fill your car with gasoline, to prevent debris build-up.
  • Protect your windshield wipers from ultraviolet radiation throughout the year by not parking in the sun.
  • Inspect your windshield wipers for cracks and tears–and address them quickly.
  • If you notice your windshield wipers aren’t working as well as they should, fix them or replace them as soon as possible.
  • When cleaning your windshield wipers, use gentle products and be sure to dry them thoroughly.
  • Lastly, keep track of how often you change your windshield wipers, and don’t push the life of one pair longer than necessary.

And of course, stay safe on the roads this year by driving a vehicle well-equipped for the winter weather. To learn more, visit us at Gossett Kia Mt. Moriah.

New Kia Niro Spy Shots Show Off Totally New Structure

Kia NiroLooking forward to the 2016 Kia Niro? Good news–new spy shots have been captured of the upcoming model in testing, showcasing the whole model in different angles on the road, through some clunky camouflage.

Kia debuted the concept of the Niro all the way back in 2013, and now, two years later, we can see that the production version will actually be much different. The new vehicle looks much more akin to the Volkswagen Golf, and appears to have a tiger nose grille.

As for what powers the Kia Niro, we still do not know, though Kia has vaguely promised “specific set of environmentally-conscious technologies,” which will hopefully mean a few options of powertrains.

You can check out the 2016 Kia Niro spy shots here, thanks to autoevolution. And while we wait for more official images of the new Kia Niro, visit us at Gossett Kia Mt. Moriah to check out the current models we have in store.
