Safer Parking: Backup Cameras


A backup camera makes it easier to see while you park or reverse out of a driveway. At Savage Kia, we find they are great to use when you are in a parking lot too! Even if you use a new vehicle for quick trips around Reading, you are sure to enjoy the added safety of a backup camera.

The camera displays on the inside of your vehicle, so you can see behind your vehicle. Parking is easier because your screen shows guidelines that allow you to view if you are too close to another vehicle.

Enhance a Scratched Automobile by Implementing Paint Touch-Up Procedures

Many scratches can decrease a car's curb appeal. However, you can make a scratched car look like new by implemented touch-up procedures to correct the flaws.

A paint touch-up project requires precise results. If you select a paint that's slightly lighter or darker than a factory shade, the different color tones will clash. In order to ensure accurate results, you must get the factory color code, which is typically found in the car owner's manual. Before you can apply this paint, you'll need to prep the application area by getting rid of contaminants. For this job…

The Difference Between Winter and Summer Blades

During the winter months, you may contend with ice, snow and other debris that you won't see as much in Reading during the summer. Therefore, it makes sense to have winter wiper blades installed on your car to deal with the intense weather conditions. You can have them installed by Savage Kia or do so yourself.

Ideally, winter blades will be put on your vehicle at the same time winter tires are put on it. When you take your winter tires off, the winter blades can come off in favor of the summer version.

What are Recalls?

With any vehicle, there are certain parts that are tricky for manufacturers to create. In fact, sometimes the designers get it so wrong that a defect occurs. These defects may lead to mass recalls of vehicles or certain parts, in which case owners are notified. Sometimes owners are notified by mail or phone call, others won't find out about it unless it's on the news. The issue with recalls is that the manufacturer must issue the recall first to denote that there is an issue. Once that happens, the discovery of safety issues or product defects can make…

Tire Pressure and Tread are Important to Safety


Many people believe that their vehicle's automated safety systems are responsible for keeping them safe. In reality, however, safety begins with your tires. You need to have proper air pressure along with sufficient tread to make sure that your vehicle will drive properly.

Properly inflated tires are essential. When they are overinflated or underinflated, you risk the chance of a blowout, which can result in you losing control of your vehicle, possibly causing an accident....

Compact Spares are Temporary Tires

Today, many automakers save space and weight by using compact spare tires with their late model vehicles. The compact tires take about half the space of a full-sized spare and have a lower weight. Compact spares are excellent for getting the vehicle off the road and to a repair shop or home.

Reading-area drivers use compact spares as a temporary replacement and not as long-term replacements. Compact tires are smaller than full-sized spares, and they have different load capacities than standard tires. When using compact tires, drivers must reduce speeds and drive with extra care.
