Here is why we do it:


Your Kia is now due for its first major service. All of the basic services have been performed. Now, our technicians use specialized equipment to more closely inspect your vehicle and make certain that all the mechanical, electronic and computer devices are working properly. At this time, we also address your vehicles's heating and cooling system. Over time, your vehicle's engine coolant can become contaminated, losing its ability to protect your engine during extreme fluctuations in temperature. The coolant also will lose its ability to protect the metal components in your vehilce's engine from rust and corrosion, causing premature engine and gasket failure. Expensive repairs could result from the lack of this required maintenance.
