Cheap and Easy Ways to Organize Your Glove Box


When you drive off in your new Kia from Superior Kia, the first thing you do is to load up the glove box with "stuff." The manual, registration, insurance, cords for electronics and more all find their way into the glove box - and no matter how much you try to keep everything nice and neat, you find yourself trying to fit everything in just right so the glove box will close.

You can buy glove box organizers, however, you can do this cheaper. For documents, pick up a soft sectioned wallet - the kind you might use for recipes. If the tabs have preprinted labels, you can print your own and stick them over the current labels. Keep things like your insurance, registration and other important papers in there.

Make sure your owner's manual and other papers pertaining to your vehicle are in the vinyl or leather binder that they come in. If the binder won't close properly, you may want to keep extra papers in the wallet you purchased.

Keep cords neatly coiled by using a trinket box from the dollar store. If you prefer to not use small boxes, wrap the cords around themselves to keep them from snaking all over the place.

Instead of keeping a large tissue box in the glove box - which takes up a ton of space, keep a small packet or two in the glove box. They are small enough to keep two - and when you use up one, replace it with another one so you always have two with you.

If you like to throw change in the glove box, get a small container with a lid so the change doesn't spill out. Not only does it stay in one place, but it's easily accessible for tolls and non-automated car washes.

Waterfalls to Visit in Ohio


If you prefer to stay close to home this summer, you can take a short road trip to waterfalls around the state. If you've never even considered that Ohio has waterfalls, you just have to find them - and this would be a perfect time to do it - especially if you just bought a new vehicle from Superior Kia.

Big Lyons Falls

This is actually a pair of falls - big and little - in Mohican State Park. The falls are along a two-mile loop hike.

Charleston Falls

If you're in Miami County after a good rain, be sure to visit Charleston Falls Preserve to find these falls.

Old Man's Cave

Visit the upper and lower falls of Old Man's Cave in Hocking Hills. During the summer, the falls may not look like much, but after a heavy rainfall, you'll see a ton of water.

Buttermilk Falls

Visit Cuyahoga Valley National Park south of Cleveland to see this gorgeous waterfall.

Cedar Falls

Cedar Falls, located in Hocking Hills, isn't one of the widest falls you'll ever see, but there's a great pool under the falls that you can cool off in.

Fallsville Falls

These waterfalls are on Clear Creek in Clinton County farmland and have more than one step before they reach the bottom.

Paine Falls

Visit Panesville to see a wider two-tiered waterfall. This waterfall is easy to get to, too.

Brandywine Falls

To see the most impressive waterfall in the Lake Erie Watershed, visit Cuyahoga Valley National Park to see the Brandywine Falls. Hike out to the overlook for some great pictures against the falls and to spend a nice day away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Visit Superior Kia

Before you head out on a waterfall hunt, be sure to have your vehicle serviced at Superior Kia. If you are considering a new vehicle this summer, stop by to test drive your next new vehicle before you go so you can enjoy a new car when you take your trip.


Refreshing Summer Dessert Recipes


If your relatives are planning a road trip to your home, you may want to have some great summer dessert ready for them. Since you may be using your vehicle to take your relatives to different places in Cincinnati, be sure to have it serviced at Superior Kia before the family arrives.

Fast Ice Cream

Whip 1 pint of heavy whipping cream and 1 teaspoon vanilla until soft peaks form. Mix in 14 ounces of sweetened condensed milk until the mixture is thick and well combined. At this point, you can add anything else you want to flavor the ice cream - or it's good as it is. This is a soft-serve ice cream, so you don't want to freeze it for more than 6 hours.

Strawberry Sauce

This can be added to the Fast Ice Cream recipe or it can be used for strawberry shortcake.

  • 4 cups strawberries, hulled, washed and sliced in half or quarters (depending on the size)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 to 3 tablespoons cornstarch

Bring the berries and the sugar to a rolling boil over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Remove the berry mixture from the heat. Mix 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 1 tablespoon cold water. Add it to the berry mixture. Slide the mixture on the hot burner and stir until the cornstarch is incorporated. If you want the mixture thicker, add another tablespoon of cornstarch/water mix. The berry mixture will thicken as it cools.

Add some of the berry mixture (once cooled completely) to Fast Ice Cream or make your favorite shortcakes for strawberry shortcake. Garnish either dessert with homemade whipped cream (recipe below).

Homemade Whipped Cream

  • 2 pints heavy cream or whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 to 1 cups sifted confectioner's sugar (to taste)

Whip the whipping cream and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Fold in the confectioner's sugar starting with 1 cup. If you want your whipped cream sweeter, add more confectioner's sugar. Keep refrigerated - it will last about 2 days in the fridge before it starts to separate.

Road Trip Games


When you load up your Kia for a road trip, you should have had it checked - or serviced if necessary - at Superior Kia. And, before you hit the road, make sure you have some road trip games ready especially if you have children. The games not only keep them entertained, but they can make the time pass faster for you, too.

Create a Story

This is more fun if you have more people. You can keep a record of the story by having someone write down each person's contribution - or you can record it to type it out later. Have one person start with a story line. Each person takes a turn adding a sentence to the story. Play until you come to the end of the story or you get tired of the game.

Alphabet Soup

Pick a category such as animals. The first person says any animal name. The next person has to say an animal that starts with the last letter of the first person's word. For example, if you say 'lizard,' the next person might say 'dog.' When you run out of things in one category, choose another category.

License Plate Game

Before you leave, make a list of all 50 states. Make columns with each person's name. The first person to call out a license plate from a state gets a check mark in their column by that state. The person who saw the most plates from different states wins.

I Spy Alphabet Soup

Put a spin on the I Spy game by making it harder. The first person to see something that starts with the letter 'A' calls that item out. The next thing someone has to find is something that starts with the letter 'B.' Go through the alphabet to see if your family can find something on the road trip that starts with every letter of the alphabet - in order.

Visit Superior Kia

Be sure to stop by Superior Kia before you leave so that you can have your vehicle checked. If you are considering a new vehicle this spring or summer, move that time line up a bit and stop by to test drive a new Kia for your road trip.

Road Trip Essentials


When you're packing your vehicle for a road trip, even if it's a short trip, there are some essentials that you must have done prior to the trip and some essentials that you need to bring with you. Unless you frequently service your vehicle, you won't know if it has an upcoming problem that could leave you stranded in the worst place ever. Stop by Superior Kia to have your vehicle serviced before you head out so that you'll have less of a chance of breaking down on the road. However, because there is always that chance - we are talking about a machine, after all - you should be prepared to spend at least 24 hours in your car.

Medical

Always be sure you have a good first aid kit in your vehicle, especially if you have children or an accident-prone spouse or friend. Don't rely on the smaller kits as they are limited in what medical aids they have available.

Additionally, be sure to bring at least two day's of extra medication if anyone traveling with you is taking daily medication. If someone has insulin or other medication that needs to be refrigerated, pack it in plastic baggies, then put it in an airtight plastic container and keep it in the cooler.

Survival

While most people bring snacks and drinks with them on a road trip to lessen the number of stops, be sure you have extra bottled water and extra high-energy snacks packed. If you do get stranded, you'll have something to eat and drink while you are waiting for help. Even on a warm summer night, you'll want extra blankets or jackets, too. If it rains, it will get damp and feel cool to many people.

Furthermore, you'll want an extra change of clothing. If it does rain, you'll have something dry to change into and won't have to worry about doing laundry on the trip because of the extra night you spend on the road.

Visit Superior Kia

Minimize your chances of getting stranded by having your vehicle checked before you head out on the road. Even if your Kia was serviced within the last couple of months, it's better to have our experienced technicians at Superior Kia check the brakes, hoses, belts, fluids and other pertinent systems before you head out.


Top Summer Road Trip Destinations


Plan a road trip to Minnesota this summer - and be sure to visit the Metropolis Resort, which is just over the border in Wisconsin. Before you head out, be sure to have your vehicle serviced at Superior Kia unless you plan on picking up a new vehicle before you go - then stop by our showroom to pick out the perfect road trip vehicle.

Metropolis Resort

This resort is located at 5150 Fairview Drive, Eau Claire, W and is about 90 miles east of the Twin Cities. Plan to visit Chaos Waterpark, Mayhem Bay for the kids and Action City for older children and adults. Action City features go-karts, batting cages, arcade games, laser tag and more. For more information, including lodging at the resort, call (715) 852-6000.

Spirit Mountain

Visit Spirit Mountain, 9500 Spirit Mountain Place, Duluth, MN. Though this is a popular winter destination because of the ski slopes, there is plenty to do in the summer, too. For a break from the every-day grind, head up for some relaxation away from it all. For more information call (218) 628-2891.

Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast

If you want to do some shopping and take a road trip to relax and take in the sights of Lake Superior, head up to the Lighthouse Bed and Breakfast, 1 Lighthouse Point, Two Harbors, MN. The lighthouse has been restored and is accessible to guests. It was built in 1982 and is the oldest operating lighthouse in Minnesota. The bed and breakfast is located in the historic lighthouse. There are only four guest rooms, so be sure to make reservations. For more information call (888) 832-5606.

Visit Superior Kia

Be sure to visit Superior Kia before you leave on your road trip. If you have service that is required at a certain mileage and you will hit that mileage before the end of your trip, have that service done before you leave. Don't forget to add the miles that you will be traveling once you reach your destination unless you are just going to hang out at the lake or on the mountain for a week of relaxation.

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.

Three Top Reasons To Choose Kia


When you decide to buy a new or used car, you have to decide which dealership you are going to get that vehicle from. That means you have to decide what make of vehicle you want, especially if you buy new. If you want a used Dodge, you can still choose Superior Kia since we may have a used Dodge at our used car lot. However, if you want a new car, you should consider getting a Kia at Superior Kia.

More Bang for Your Buck

Choose a Kia because you get more bang for your buck. Kia models have more features for its vehicles than most other manufacturers in the same vehicle class. For example, a mid-trim-level Kia sedan may have heated seats while other manufacturers may only offer that in their highest trim levels. Kia models are at least competitive in pricing if not less expensive than another manufacturer's vehicle in that class.

Lower Yearly Cost to Own

Many of Kia's models have a lower yearly cost to own. This means they are cheaper to insure, have better fuel economy and don't depreciate as fast. When a vehicle holds its value, you can get more for it on resale.

Excellent Customer Service

When you buy a new or used vehicle from Superior Kia, the excellent customer service doesn't stop when you drive off the lot. Whether you need service, repairs, need a part from our parts department, or have an issue with your Kia, our staff is helpful and friendly.

Give Your Kia a Spring Cleaning


Now that it's spring, the snow should be gone for good and that means it's time to do some spring cleaning for your Kia. You should detail the interior and exterior thoroughly, including the undercarriage and the wheels. You can have your Kia thoroughly cleaned at Superior Kia or pick up any part or accessories you may need at our parts department.

Exterior Detailing

Detailing and cleaning the exterior is one of the most important things you can do to increase the longevity of your vehicle. The salt mix from the winter can really degrade the paint and if left on long enough will remove the paint.

Wash your Kia, including the undercarriage. Make sure you get any built up mud off as it probably contains salt from the roads. Once you have it completely cleaned, go over the vehicle to make sure there are no small scratches that need to be repaired. You can have our body shop repair dents and scratches. Once your Kia looks is clean, give it a good coat of wax with high-quality wax.

Interior Detailing

You may not think the winter would have much wear and tear on the interior of your vehicle, but it does. Every time you get in with water on your feet, they probably has salt and other chemicals used in clearing roads and parking lots. Wash and vacuum the floor mats, then vacuum the carpets. Shampoo all of the carpets in your Kia.

Be sure to clean and use the appropriate products on the materials inside your vehicle to restore their luster. If you have a leather interior, use a good leather cleaning product. Make sure you clean the dash and consoles. Don't forget the back seat!

Checking the Mechanics and Detailing the Engine Compartment

As part of your spring cleaning, you should have your vehicle's mechanics checked. Check the tires - and change them from winter to summer or all-season tires, check the brakes, suspension, steering, belts, hoses and fluids. Clean and detail the engine compartment. Salt water splashes up into the engine compartment. Getting that mess plus any grime in there allows you to see the engine and allows you to find leaks.

Stop by Superior Kia to have our vehicle thoroughly detailed and checked out to make sure you are ready for spring road trips.

Kia Trail'ster steals the show at the Chicago Auto Show


When you visit an auto show and look at some of the concept cars, you'll get an idea of what an auto manufacturer is thinking of putting out next. Within a year or two, you'll see something based on that platform at dealerships like Superior Kia. While some vehicles never make it to dealerships, many do.

One of the concept cars at the Chicago Auto Show, the Kia Trail'Ster -- a version of the Soul, has a good shot at being seen at Kia dealerships. The Trail'Ster is a hybrid all-wheel drive model that could be seen in the near future. The concept features a retractable roof, integrated roof rack fittings, aluminum cross rails, LED lights, skid plates and fog lights. Additionally, the Trail'Ster has 2.5 inches more ground clearance than the Soul.

These bolder styling cues stole the show for Kia. That the Trail'Ster is being promoted as an off-road crossover utility vehicle also caught the attention of people. The new concept was developed at Kia's design studio in Irvine, California; and designers kept those who want to take mountain adventures and escape urban reality in mind.

The Trail'Ster - as it sits now - will feature a turbocharged 1.6-liter engine with 185 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque. The all-wheel drive system will be driven by a 35-horsepower electric motor on the rear axle. The electric motor will produce 100 pound-feet of torque and will be powered by a 1.2-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which will be located under the rear cargo floor.

This combination makes more horsepower than either of the engines in the Soul. The same engine now puts out 130 horsepower in the 2015 Soul; and the 2.0-liter that is optional in the Soul puts out 164 horsepower.

To learn more about the Kia Trail'Ster as information becomes available, keep your eye on this blog or visit our Superior Kia showroom.

2015 Soul EV


If you love the Kia Soul and want an electric vehicle, you're in luck. Kia now has a Soul EV, however, it won't be available at Superior Kia and other dealerships outside of California for some time; though hopefully it will be available some time this year. The new urban passenger vehicle or UPV is Kia's first zero-emissions vehicle.

A fully charged battery pack gets you a range of about 93 miles, so you'll probably rarely see a Soul outside of city limits. However, this EV is perfect for decreasing your cost of living by using it to commute. The Soul's range is better than most and comes in second to only the Tesla Model S. The eight-inch color display, located in the center of the dashboard, allows you to monitor the battery state and range.

The Soul EV weighs in at about 3,400 pounds - several hundred pounds more than a basic gas model. The extra weight comes from a 620-pound battery pack and five subfloor beams that are used to strengthen the unitized body. The battery pack is air-cooled and features 192 cells. The eight modules that hold the cells ride under the first and second row seats.

A single speed transmission transfers power from the synchronous AC motor that makes 210 pound-feet of torque and 109 horsepower. Since the motor makes torque and horsepower immediately, acceleration is not a problem in the Soul EV and you'll have no problem getting going from a dead stop. However, because of the weight of the Soul, getting to 60 mph might take a smidgen longer than it does in the gas model - around 10.7 seconds.

2016 Kia Rio at Superior Kia


If you are in the market for a Kia Rio and have been waiting for the 2016 model year to arrive, your wait won't be that long. Within the next month or two, the Rio should be available at Superior Kia. And, this model is one that Kia refreshed for the new year.

Some of the new features include revised front and rear fascias and a new grille. The new grille now features the corporate geometric grille mesh pattern that you see on the Soul and the Optima. Along with the new grille, the headlights were moved inward - not too much - which gives the Kia Rio more of a contemporary look.

In addition to the grille and moved-in headlights, the front also features new fog light surrounds with satin bezels. The new surrounds outline projector lenses. The lower valence also received horizontal style lines to further enhance the Rio's new look.

The front of the Rio is not the only thing that Kia refreshed. The rear sports new tail lights; and the designers move those to the far corners of the vehicle. And, depending on the trim level, new horizontal lines for the lower rear, just like those in the front.

The 2016 model year also features two new colors: urban blue and digital yellow. And, some of the interior trim has been changed; plus the Rio has more high-density foam in the A and B pillars to reduce NVH levels.

The Rio didn't get an engine refresh - it is still powered by the 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. This engine makes 138 horsepower and 123 pound-feet of torque. The engine is backed by a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. However, the hatchback version no longer offers the manual transmission.

The Rio features three trim levels: the LX, the EX and the SX. The trim levels are mostly unchanged; however, the LX Power package adds power windows, power door locks, and keyless entry. And, if you opt for the automatic transmission on the LX, you'll get Bluetooth and Active Eco System.

The top trim, the SX, is sportier than the other two trim levels and includes 17-inch aluminum wheels, 11-inch front brake rotors, a sport-tuned transmission, shift paddles and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Additionally, the SX also features navigation, a backup camera, leather upholstery, push button start, a sunroof and heated front seats.

Soul EV Revealed at Chicago Auto Show


If you like the Soul, you'll love the Soul electric vehicle. The new EV model was released at the Chicago Auto Show in early 2015. The Soul EV was shown alongside the Kia Niro Concept, a hybrid urban utility vehicle (UUV) and the new 2014 Kia Optima hybrid sedan. The Kia Soul EV is not yet available at dealerships, including Superior Kia. Prices will be released closer to the Soul EV's release date.

How it Works

The EV features a 27-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack that is mounted under the Soul's floor. The cells' nickel-cobalt-manganese cathode chemistry allows the battery pack to have more energy capacity; and the graphic anode makes the battery lighter, thus reducing energy consumption.

An 81-kilowatt electric motor powers the front wheels. This liquid-cooled electric motor makes 109 horsepower and 210 pound-feet of torque. The motor can go from 0 to 60 mph in less than 12 seconds and has a top speed of 90 mph.

To help with power requirements, the regenerative braking system recaptures about 12 percent of the vehicle's kinetic energy when you coast or apply the brakes. The consumer can choose "Brake" mode to provide more regeneration; or Drive. Both modes work with the Eco-Mode on, which also increases the regenerative effect.

Charging

The Kia Soul EV can use a Level 2 J-1772 charging port or a CHAdeMO quick-charging port. The hookup is located behind a sliding door in the Soul's nose. The onboard charger is a 3.3-kilowatt charger. A depleted pack takes about five hours using Level 2 and up to 24 hours to charge on 120-volt household current. The battery pack will charge to 80 percent in about 33 minutes when using the quick charger.

Kia Soul EV

According to Green Car Reports, the Kia should go 80 to 100 miles on a charge, but said Kia did not predict electric range or EPA energy efficiency rating. The Soul EV features a larger grille, projector beam headlights, LED lights, color accents for the front and rear fascias, and badging on the fender that says "Eco Electric." The vehicle also uses unique 16-inch alloy wheels covered with ultra-low-rolling-resistance tires.

The All-New Redesigned Kia Sedona

http://pictures.dealer.com/s/superiorkia/1698/e5287fe4120e57f0ea2649d434d7dd51x.jpg

If you liked the Kia Sedona before, you'll like this model year even better - and if you were on the fence about the Sedona, you'll be tipped to the "right" side of the fence with the all-new redesigned model, now available at Superior Kia. No longer a minivan, the Sedona multi-purpose vehicle, or MPV, look nothing like a minivan except for the sliding side doors.

Exterior Changes

Some of the changes on the exterior include front and rear trim that is now designed to look like skid plates, a larger nose, smaller rear quarter glass, and on some models, 19-inch aluminum wheels. And as for ground clearance? The new Sedona features 6.7 inches - and that's right up there with "real" SUV models.

However, Kia didn't make an all-wheel drive Sedona, so even though you might have the height to go off road, it's probably not advisable. However, with the right snow tires, you'll probably make it through 4 or 5 inches of snow.

Cargo and People Space

The Sedona can carry up to eight people in all three rows and still have 33.9 cubic feet of cargo space for your stuff. When you don't need that third seat for people, flip it down and you've got 78.4 cubic feet to store stuff. And five people will still fit - plenty of space for a family with three kids and everyone's beach stuff.

Certain trim levels also have the Slide-N-Stow seats in the second row. These seats collapse against the front seats and increase cargo space to 142 cubic feet. That makes converting the MPV into a utility vehicle quite easy, unlike some other brands where you have to actually remove the seats.

If you choose captains chairs for the second row in the SXL trim level, those can be moved laterally inboard for child safety. And, the seat also slides to the rear so you can have tons of legroom in the second row. The SXL model's second row also fully reclines - and has ottoman-style leg rests.

Additional Packages

If you opt for the SXL and want the technology package, that package includes forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, Xenon HID headlights and a surround-view monitoring system.

Comfort

The SXL features tons of convenience and comfort features including a wood- and leather-trimmed heated steering wheel, Premium Nappa leather seat trim, eight-way power driver's seat with four-way power lumbar, and heat and ventilation. Lower trim models have stain-resistant fabric and some even have a heated driver's seat.

How to Keep Your Kia In Tip-Top Shape In 2015


Uthor/Flickr Creative Commons

Keeping your Kia in tip-top shape means that you have a vehicle that always looks new and when it's time to trade it in, you'll get a better trade-in price for it. This means your Kia's paint looks great, the interior is spotless and the vehicle is mechanically sound. While you can do many things yourself, to keep your vehicle in the best shape, Superior Kia is here to help you.

Exterior Care

Always wash and wax your Kia, especially if you notice a lot of grime on the fenders or you parked under a tree and the birds had good aim. Acids in dirt, snow and ice buildup, bird poop and a beating from the weather all contribute to dulling the paint. The sun can cause the clear coat to lift and peel. Keeping a good coat of wax on the paint and keeping the vehicle free from acidic compounds will help lengthen the life of the paint.

Whether the wheels are chrome, alloy, aluminum or steel, they need care. Each type needs to be maintained, though some wheels such as chrome are higher maintenance in that you have to polish them more often or the chrome will start to rust off.

Interior Care

Whether the interior of your vehicle is cloth, leather or leatherette, you should clean it thoroughly every couple of months. Condition the leather seats to keep them supple. Vacuum cloth seats to keep dirt and grime from being ground into the material. Be sure to use the proper cleaners and conditioners for the dash and other materials in the interior.

Mechanical Care

Mechanical care not only ensures that your vehicle commands a higher trade-in price, it is also a safety issue. Be sure to stick to the manufacturer's recommended maintenance schedules to keep your engine running for hundreds of thousands of miles. When something wears out or breaks, replace it immediately.

For example, if you hear the brakes squealing, don't wait until they grind - your repair will cost you much less. Squealing brakes mean that the metal tab on the pad is hitting the rotor. This tells you that the pads are low. If you ignore that and continue driving, eventually the pads will wear down completely and the metal backing will score the rotor. Additionally, pads that are too low could overextend the calipers - if that happens, you will have to replace the calipers.

What Will Your New Year's Resolution Be?


Derek Keats/Flickr Creative Commons

Most people make New Year's resolutions even if they think they are not going to keep them. Instead of picking something that might be difficult, pick a New Year's resolution that should be easy to keep. One great resolution is to stay updated on your Kia's service at Superior Kia. And, that's an easy one to keep, too.

Picking a New Year's Resolution

If you have a resolution to keep up with service on your vehicle, you already have a good start. To determine what else you should resolve to do, ask yourself a series of questions. The questions will help you determine which resolutions are worth making - and will help you pick things that are easier to do.

What is the Biggest Challenge for You?

A person has many ways to answer this question. Staying organized, staying healthy, procrastination, focusing on goals and other actions that can better your life come to mind. Once you pick something, it helps you to determine what your resolution should be. For example, if you think staying organized is a big challenge, your resolution might be to organize one room every month. Instead of saying you'll organize your whole house and keep it organized, which might be hard for you to do, you'll do one room. By the time you finish with all of the rooms, the first room will be ready for you to reorganize.

Describe the Past Year

Whether you had a bad year, disappointing year, happy year, a good year - it doesn't matter. Pick a word. Then determine what you can do to change it if it needs to be changed. If you had a good year or a happy year, nothing needs to be changed; however, you can always make it better if you want.

Determine What You Want to Find in the Coming Year

Whether you want love, money, success, a new job, a new house, a new car from Kia - make a resolution to save toward that project or to find love or success. It's easier to say you'll save $50 per week toward the down payment on a house or car from Superior Kia than it is to say you're going to save $5,000 in the next six months.

Take Baby Steps

If you create New Year's resolutions that are easier to achieve, you won't be as likely to give up and you'll actually be able to keep those resolutions.

Which SUV is Best for You?

While the Sorento has more convenience and security features than the Sportage, the Sportage still has tons of standard equipment that many other brands in that class don't include including heated and ventilated seats. If you can qualify for the Sorento, test drive both SUV models at Superior Kia to determine which SUV best fits your needs.

Take into consideration how many people will be riding - do you have a large family or carpool? Also take into consideration the monthly payments if you buy - or what they may be if you lease. If you prefer the Sorento but don't want that monthly payment, you may be able to lease it for much less than a finance payment.

Complete Your Christmas List at Superior Kia

http://pictures.dealer.com/ddc/resize/x514/quality/72/sharpen/1/ddc/s/superiorkia/1945/c3ec5007aaf778cdc320ed209b6a5f7ex.jpg

If you have a person on your Christmas list that is just impossible to buy for and that person owns a Kia, you've got it made! Complete your Christmas list at Superior Kia with accessories for the car.

Front and Rear Splash Guards

These are perfect for the Kia owner who doesn't like getting anything on the paint job, especially salt-laden snow and ice. Since the salt destroys the paint, you have to clean it off often. These splash guards will keep a lot of the slushy mess or mud away from the paint.

Crossbars

If your friend or relative has a Kia and loves outdoor sports such as boating and fishing, the crossbars are perfect. Mount a canoe, fishing poles, or even add a cargo box on top of the vehicle. Add a ski holder or bike holder to the crossbars for the person who loves to take his or her "toys" everywhere.

All-Weather Mats

All-weather mats are the perfect gift for a Kia owner. They keep the carpet clean and, more importantly, keep the carpet from getting stained with snow, ice, mud and salt.

Cargo Accessories

Pick up a cargo net or cargo tray for the Kia owner who prefers items to stay in place during a commute or road trip. A cargo mat protects the carpet in the cargo area and is perfect for protection from groceries that might leak, such as packs of meat or ice cream in the summer.

Sport Visors

Sport visors not only look great, but they help keep the rain from dripping on you. This is great for those who must drive with the window opened a crack no matter what the weather or temperature.

Dressing up Your Kia

Hood masks, hood deflectors and chrome mirror covers change the way your Kia looks and makes it uniquely yours. If you have a friend or relative who is a Kia owner and wants his or her own special look, pick up these items or bumper covers. Bumper covers not only change the look of the Kia, but protect the bumper.

What to Expect from Kia in 2015

http://pictures.dealer.com/ddc/resize/x514/quality/72/sharpen/1/ddc/s/superiorkia/1032/6c0714c2dc8d63a7cb2158bb5d4eb91dx.jpg

If you already own a Kia, then you're probably a Kia fan and will be looking to upgrade to a new Kia in 2015. We at Superior Kia keep you apprised of new Kia models and what's new for the new model year to make your buying decision easier. Stop by Superior Kia today to see some of our 2015 models; and stop by our blog often to see what might be coming down the pike.

Kia KX3

If you were disappointed that Kia didn't show at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, hold that thought - the Korean manufacturer did appear, but at the Guangzhou, China auto show - and they had a new concept car. While the concept car won't be released in North America, it could be a "show off" vehicle for changes to the Kia Sportage that is due to be released in 2015. Since Kia hasn't mentioned much of anything about what features of the KX3 will appear on the Sportage, we'll just have to wait until the company releases information on the upcoming model year.

2016 Kia Sorento

The Sorento was first released in North America in 2002 and didn't have its first redesign until 2009, then again in 2013. Even though the 2013 model year was released as the third generation model, many consider that release a facelift rather than a new generation. The 2015 model year saw a completely revamped Sorento - so if you have an older Sorento and you want a new one, you'll notice many differences for the upcoming year's model.

And, the 2016 model, while still in camouflage, does show some of its newly redesigned body. The front and rear fascias have been redesigned and the front grille is larger. Newly redesigned headlights curve further into the fenders. The interior will be roomier due to a longer wheelbase; and the infotainment center has been upgraded. Additionally, climate controls have been redesigned to make them easier to use. Keep your eye on this space to learn more about the 2016 Sorento as it becomes available.

2015 Kia High Performance K900

A high performance K900? Really? That's just what Kia has done; and the high performance model has several things that differentiate it from the luxury sedan model. First, the body kit features aggressive-looking carbon fiber inserts. The 21-inch wheels help show that this K900 is not like its predecessor. And, the 5.0-liter V-8 under the hood and a lot more power than you would expect from a Kia.

The secret of the power is hidden in the trunk: a Garrett 2871R twin turbo that makes the 480 horses in the sedan look like child's play. The high performance Kia 5.0 makes a whopping 650 horsepower. And why is the turbo in the trunk? The placement reduces the heat build-up in the engine compartment and keeps the body in its factory configuration.

Stop by Superior Kia to test drive your next new Kia and keep an eye on this space for updates about the new Kia models that will be released in the upcoming year.

Fun Fall Treats

Since it's getting cooler - actually, colder - out, you are more apt to spend time inside. Use that time to make some fun fall treats for your family - or to teach your kids how to make cookies and other treats. When you finish with your winterization service appointment at Superior Kia, head over to the grocery store to pick up the ingredients you'll need for these fall treats.

Autumn Leaves

  • Your favorite sugar cookie dough
  • Food coloring - red, green orange, yellow
  • 1 1/3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 5 to 7 teaspoons warm water
  • 1 tablespoon meringue powder
  • teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 2 tablespoons coarse sugar

Divide the dough into four bowls. Add food coloring each of the bowls to make the colored cookie dough.

Roll the cookies out to -inch thickness and cut out leaf shapes with a cookie cutter. Bake as directed for your recipe. Remove the cookies from the pans to cool on wire racks immediately.

While the cookies are cooling, combine the confectioners' sugar, water, meringue powder and the almond extract. Beat the mixture on low until it's just blended. Decorate the cookies as desired, then sprinkle them with coarse sugar. Let them stand at room temperature until they set. Store the cookies in an airtight container.

Caramel Apple Cupcakes

  • 1 package spice cake mix
  • 2 cups chopped and peeled tart apples
  • 20 caramels
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted
  • 12 popsicle sticks

Make the cake batter as directed on the box. Fold the apples into the cake batter. Line muffin pans with paper cups and fill each one full. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cupcakes comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, add the caramels and milk to a saucepan and cook over low heat until the mixture is smooth. Spread the mixture over the cupcakes, then sprinkle the tops with the pecans. Insert a popsicle stick in the middle of each cupcake.

Whether you are on your way to the grocery store or on your way back, stop by Superior Kia to test drive your next new vehicle or to have your current Kia serviced and winterized.


Kick Up Your Kia!

When you want to make your Kia stand out from other's Kia models, kick it up with some Kia accessories. From lighting to roof racks, you can find many things to change the look of your Kia - and that makes it easier to find in a sea of cars at the mall! Order these and other great accessories from Superior Kia.

Sporting and Extra Cargo Space

Whether you want to haul your bike around, go skiing, head out to the river for some kayaking or just need some extra cargo space, you'll need a set of cross bars. These mount on the roof and keep anything you need to put there off the paint.

Add a heavy-duty roof cargo bin so you can have space for more people inside. The cargo bin can carry luggage or even makes a great place to "hide" purchases when you are stopping at more than one place.

If you have a kayak and are tired of borrowing someone's truck or taking your own truck every time you want to go out, add the kayak mount to the cross bars to carry your kayak in a safe and convenient manner wherever you want to go. If you have a bicycle or skis, you can also get special mounts to hold them securely.

Towing

Add a tow hitch to your Kia so you can tow your ATV to new places to explore. Or, if you want to hike and bike, add a cargo bin to the roof rails and a bike holder to the tow hitch to carry your bicycle. You'll find that there's no end to the fun you can have with your Kia when you add these accessories.

Lighting

Add puddle lights to light up the area near the doors. Not only is this great so that you can see in the dark, but it makes your Kia look even better than it already does. Kick it up a notch with an interior lighting kit that personalizes the cabin. The lighting kit is a fully integrated color system that places lights in the cup holders, foot well area and the forward tray. The lights also shine a soft white light when the doors are opened.
