Winterize Your Car in East Meadow, NY

Winterize Your Car in East Meadow, NY

You’ve stocked up your closet with extra layers of clothing and stacked up logs for the fireplace. Now it’s time to get your car ready for the winter season. Here at Autoworld Kia, our Service Department is here to help with our routine maintenance appointments and some practical tips to ensure you can brave sub-zero temperatures with ease and safety. Give us call at 526-240-9885 to schedule an appointment today!

Since they are essential for keeping you on the go with control, we highly recommend you take a few minutes to observe the condition of your tires. With the Penny Test, you can quickly check the level of treading. Simply place a penny on the tire and if you can see Lincoln’s head above the tread, it’s time to invest in a new set! When snow and sleet start to cover the roads, you don’t want to take a risk with worn tires, since they can send you sliding when you least expect it. We carry all of your favorite brands, as well as all-season and winter rubbers to equip your sedan or SUV.

When you make a visit to our Service Department, our trained technicians can cover all the parts underneath the hood that need special attention this time of year. If you aren’t sure how old your battery is, we can test its power level to make sure it will last you until spring’s thaw. Keep in mind that lower temperatures cause more work for the battery, which is why you want to have peace of mind that yours is ready to keep you moving. Additionally, all fluids should be at least half full to avoid freezing. This applies to power-steering and windshield wiper fluid, as well as the engine oil. We suggest maintaining this same rule of thumb when it comes to getting gas.

While you should always keep a first aid kit in your car, adding some extra supplies for winter can make a huge difference should you happen to get stuck on the side of the road. Staying warm is the main concern, so include a blanket, extra gloves, and portable hand warmers. Flares and a flashlight can help you signal for help and enhance visibility, while a small shovel is ideal if you get stuck in the snow. Lastly, consider adding snacks such as trail mix or granola bars.

Don’t wait any longer to winterize your car in East Meadow, NY! Come to your trusted local dealership, Autoworld Kia, and learn more. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Called in for a car and Dery prepared it before we came. He was very polite and helpful. He explained everything nicely. We were able to get everything in just 2 hours. I'm satisfied with my experience here. I would recommend going to Dery because he was not a pushy salesman. He was patient and was able to answer all our questions.

Thank u Gregory

Just leased the 2020 Telluride! Al helped me. He made it a quick and painless process. Al was friendly and knowledgeable. He moved the process along. I was driving away with my new car in less than 2 hours. Al made sure to follow up with me after my purchase too. So nice. And I’m loving my Telluride.

After going from one dealership to another looking for a right car we came to this dealership and were so lucky to be greeted by Dery Santos. He helped us from the very beginning and handled everything on a professional level. He was very detailed when it came to explaining all the features and options. He made the purchase easy, fast and pleasant. I would definitely give him a top star rate!

Thank you!

First and foremost, I LOVE MY OPTIMA! I went into the dealership greeted by Scott Yaeger. What a friendly and nice guy. He showed me the first car. I wanted it. Changed my mind three times before I ultimately decided to get the 2019 preowned Kia. He knew exactly what I was looking for, and when I bought my new used car, we both smiled and said that’s the one! Scott is a very good salesman and not once did he pressure me into anything. Now all I have to do is learn how to use the technology in it, as my last car was a 2006 with nothing but an am/fm radio. And the finance manager helped me tremendously when I was.unsure about buying the extended warranty. Again, no pressure. I no longer have anything to worry about. Everything is covered! I’m glad I was so picky. I’m so glad Scott was so patient with me too. Thank you.

Great, honest

An excellent vehicle, great service, and a straightforward and helpful salesperson! Thanks to Joey R. who made my experience at Autoworld Kia a great one. I came in needing to lease a car, but not looking forward to the process. Joey was the first person I saw onsite. He led me to a parking spot and worked with me, quite literally, from start to finish. This included taking the Kia Sorento for a test drive and going out of his way to arrange for my wife to do drive it as well. We worked out a good deal and Joey was thorough and helpful in going over everything aspect of the vehicle and the process. I walked out that day with keys in hand and very happy that Kia Autoworld was my first and last stop.

Couldn’t have a better experience. I helped my cousin get the deal he wanted without any issues. Of course there was a little back and forth but that is expected. Thanks guys for getting us a great deal and especially thanks to Ernesto for making it happen, i can see why he’s been there for a few years!

Had a great experience from auto world kia. I am use to going from dealership to dealership to find the best price but when i spoke to the salesman Ernesto i knew i was getting the best deal and my shopping was no longer needed. If you are looking for a kia i recommend seeing Ernesto. He will make things happen
