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 needed multiple parts for my Ford, and Greg (in the parts' dept) handled my phone order in less than 10 minutes. He was very knowledgeable about confirming the exact part numbers I needed, and verifying the parts to match my vehicle. The parts were delivered faster than expected, and when I arrived to pick them up, Greg even helped load the heavy items into my truck! Great service by Greg, and the parts dept. here. Highly recommended.

I had occasion recently to bring my 2011 Edge into Rock River Ford for service. I needed the Radiator flushed. I know that the Edge with the 3.5 Duratec Engine calls for a particular Coolant. I asked Darrell about that. He said (Just a minute Dave,Lets talk to parts) He got the answer and explained to me why the Dark Green coolant is important for the complete health of the motor and especially the water pump. I asked him if he would have the mechanic give the whole underneath of my car a look over while it was on the hoist. That was done and the mechanic not only assured me that I the car was GOOD. I did need a left ball joint. I had that done the next day. The Mechanic not only told me the importance of using the dark green coolant but he gave me a bottle half full of it for my convenience Just in case in needed some later I was completely happy with the attention I got from Darrell and also his mechanic. I wish I had his name because he was great..

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!
