Rock River Block

Winterize Your Kia near Beloit, WI

Enjoy Service from Our Expert Staff!

Winter is fast approaching! At Rock River Block, we want to remind you that with this change in seasons comes freezing cold temperatures as well as icy or snowy roads. All of these factors can put strain on different parts of your car with results that range from inconvenient to downright unsafe. To make sure that you and your vehicle are fully prepared for everything Mother Nature has in store for us, be sure to stop by our dealership at 224 North Alpine Road in Rockford, IL, and ask for winter service.

Why Winterize My Vehicle?

To many of our hearty midwestern customers, winter doesn’t seem like a huge deal. Many of us have grown up with snow and ice and are used to the cold—some even prefer it to other seasons! We love that we have drivers who love using their vehicles at all times of the year, but we want to offer a reminder of the dangers winter can pose. According to the US Federal Highway Administration, an average1 of 1,836 deaths and 136,309 injuries occur per year due to snowy and icy roads. These figures are nothing to sneeze at, and many occur to factors that may not be in your control if a component of your vehicle fails. That’s why you should do you utmost to ensure that you and your automobile are as ready as possible. Stay safe and have fun on the roads by visiting Rock River Block.

Winterizing Your Kia

When you stop by our Service Department, we’ll do our utmost to prepare both you and your vehicle for the impending season. Icy and snowy roads pose threats to your tires and brake pads, so we’ll be sure to check on those to ensure that you have the stopping power you want. The cold can also affect your engine and battery, so we’ll be sure to take a look at your engine filters, your battery’s power, as well as fluid levels throughout your ride. If you have any specific concerns, don’t hesitate to ask one of our expert mechanics! They can take care of general maintenance and any precise repairs you might have in mind.

Winter Driving Habits

While you’re at Rock River Block, you should also ask one of our technicians about winter driving habits. Even when your vehicle is performing perfectly, other drivers and even your own driving abilities could pose a risk to your safety. But if you take proper precautions, you’ll be able to set out more confidently each day. The primary advice we have is to slow down. This means leaving your home earlier for work or any scheduled meetings and leaving at least a full car’s distance between you and surrounding vehicles. Be prepared for longer stopping distances, and be patient with your own car’s performance as well as that of other drivers. You’ll have mastered the elements in no time at all!

Are you starting to want to winterize your Kia near Beloit, WI? If so then just pay us a visit at Rock River Block. You can schedule a visit online or just stop by during our service hours. Either way, we’ll be happy to see you at our dealership.

I purchased my first car from Rock River Ford a few weeks ago, and had a wonderful car buying experience. Everyone who I interacted with through the entire process was extremely polite and professional. I felt welcomed right away, and never felt pressured or forced to make any decisions during the process. I highly recommend this dealer if you're looking for a smooth buying experience!

He was so patient with me and was very helpful. I wanted to buy from him but they did not have the SUV I wanted. He made the whole experience painless. He never made me feel pressured. I felt like part of the family. If you are looking to buy from Anderson Rock River Block this is the guy!

Bernie made this the easiest and most personable car buying experience I've had in many years of auto purchases. He asked what I was looking for in a vehicle and what my budget was and we went from there, showing me options in makes and models then finding the one that was right. He was polite, courteous and offered none of the usual BS I've come to expect from dealerships. Mike in finance sealed the deal in no time again, making sure I was comfortable with all aspects of the deal, Truly a pleasure dealing with them both! Nice to walk out of a dealer knowing I was treated fairly and with respect.
