Germain Kia Importance of Maintenance

Risks Your Kia Faces While Parked in the Driveway

Your Kia faces many dangers when sitting parked - even more so when you aren't able to park your Kia inside a garage or other protected area. Dampness from your climate can expose vulnerable parts of your Kia to rust and related damage, making for expensive repairs later on. Trees are natural dangers to your Kia, whether, through falling branches, layers of sap falling on your vehicle, and any animals that love to hang around in the area may also find an interest in your vehicle's engine bay (leading to damage to wiring, etc.). Even if you can park your Kia in a garage, however, it's important to remember that, even though you're not logging any miles, your fluids; transmission, coolant, and brake, will continue to age. This is why fluids have lifespans listed as 5,000 miles or 6 months (whichever comes first).

Why Keeping Up With Kia Maintenance Even When Driving Less is Important

Many things can happen to your Kia when it's sitting parked in your garage or along the streetside. Apart from natural, environmental dangers such as damage from falling items from trees and curious animals, your fluids will still age and many parts may be exposed to wear. Keeping up with your maintenance even when you're not driving as frequently as you normally would is the best way to protect your car from idle dangers and to prepare it for when you're going to need it regularly again. Scheduling certified service for your maintenance at Germain Kia of Columbus adds an extra layer of protection by guaranteeing all of your service done with us is only performed by Kia certified technicians who use genuine OEM parts and products.
