SPORTAGE SAFETY STORY

15. July 2016 16:20 by Administrator | 0 Comments

In April of 2016, Jessica Lewis-Michaud of Sherbrooke, QC, had an unbelievable and life-changing experience. Jessica recounted the day their Kia Sportage saved their lives on Facebook when she shared this post with us. “I got in a bad car accident with my Kia sportage 2016, as you can see my car is a total loss, but my passenger and I (and the baby I carry) are all fine, nothing broken, no open wounds, no internal bleeding. Just bruises and a rubbing burn due to the belt being right on my skin. I give this Kia car a 5 stars for the security, if it wasn’t for the air bags we could of been way more injured and I could have lost the baby.” It’s reasons like this that we put such a relentless and significant focus on the safety of our vehicles. We’ve heard many other incredible stories just like Jessica’s where drivers and their families have walked away, injury free, from collisions in their Kia vehicles and it makes it all worthwhile.  We are very proud to be able to say that the Kia Sportage (link to: www.kia.ca/sportage) has been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, has won a Red Dot Award for its design and has even been named the Highest Ranked Small SUV in Initial Quality by J.D. Power. But nothing makes us more proud than knowing we’ve helped protect and even save the lives of our drivers and their family members.

Parts and Service

Eating right, exercising and regular check-ups ensure our optimal health. Some people don’t consider that their car needs similar attention in order to ensure its optimal operating condition. While basic things like scheduled oil changes are obviously critical, one overlooked area of car maintenance are your tires. Under inflating them can cause poor or delayed braking, poor steering and poor acceleration as well as expedited wear. Similarly, over inflating can make them ride on the centre portion of the tire tread causing a harsh ride and uneven wear. Take a peek at Kia’s tire education newsletter to learn more about tire safety: http://www.kia.ca/newsletter/mar13/tireeducation_eng/ Another important part of looking after your car is getting your Kia serviced at a Kia dealership. Why? Simple. Kia dealers know Kia cars. With years of knowledge on how Kia cars operate, the service department at your Kia dealership will ensure your car is working the way it should be.
