There are things we do on a regular basis for our car. We fill it with gas, replace the oil and filters, even wash it. Sometimes, we even get help remembering when to do this regular maintenance. That is to say if we are low on gas a warning light comes on. Or, when we have our oil changed a sticker is placed on the inside of our windshield to remind us of when to return for the next oil change. But what about wipers? How often should you replace windshield wipers? The short answer is twice a year.  (more…)

A look back at the world’s coolest hamsters

Sure we love them. Heck, we’ve danced and sung with them for years. In fact, we’ve come to expect that the coolest hamster’s in the world will be the ones to share any news on the Kia Soul. But where did it all start?  Why do hamsters speak for Kia? To understand, we need to go back to 2009, when they first hit the scene. The theme of the first Kia Soul ad was “a different way to roll”. The idea was that you didn’t have to be a hamster running endlessly in your wheel for “fun”. You could be like the ever-so-cool Kia hamsters and their new and different car. It made sense, and the product is outstanding, so it stuck. The hamsters are now the official ambassadors of the Kia Soul. The original Kia ad from 2009 and the 2010 ad are below. Both have won multiple awards. Do you have a favorite? Be sure to tell us when you come by Carolina Kia in High Point.
