Spring Clean Your Kia in Houston, TX

Spring Clean Your Kia in Houston, TX

How Do I Sanitize My Vehicle?

The changing of seasons brings the perfect opportunity to clean your home from head to toe. While you are organizing your closets, garage, and storage spaces, don’t forget to give your Kia driving option some much-needed attention. After all, many of us spend most of our time behind the wheel of our trusty sets of wheels! Before you start, take a look at this guide to make sure you cover all aspects of your vehicle from front to back. If you have any questions, contact us at DeMontrond Kia. 

Interior

To begin, let’s dive straight into the cabin of your Optima, Sorento, or Seltos, since it is the place that can become cluttered after carpools and long commutes. You can get the ball rolling by removing floor mats and using a soft brush to kick up any dirt that has embedded itself deep into the fibers of your carpet. Once that is complete, you can grab your vacuum or head to your nearest gas station to pick up any remnants. Then, you can take a look beneath your seats to pick up any lost items or rogue wrappers that have been dropped. Don’t forget about using a gentle soap on your upholstery and seat backs, because these are perfect places for coffee stains and stray sneezes to reside. If you have a leather interior, make sure to use an approved cleaner that won’t dry out the material. Lastly, hose down your mats and wipe them dry before you put them back in their original locations. 

Cabin Surfaces

Next, we at DeMontrond Kia will direct your attention toward the hot spots in your vehicle that are optimal places for germs and bacteria to fester. To start, head to your favorite grocery store and buy a pack of sanitizing wipes. Or, if they are all out, you can always use a combination of soap and water to get the job done. Then, you can get started by scrubbing your steering wheel, climate control system, radio, cupholders, door handles, and shift knob to make sure you clear away any dangerous microbes. After, feel free to move on to your touchscreen with a microfiber cloth, since paper towels can end up causing irreversible damage to your display. Don’t forget to wipe down your instrument panel and windows with glass cleaner to get rid of any remaining fingerprints or smudges. 

Exterior

With spring months in full effect, it's important that you make an impression with each drive. That is why we highly recommend that you get the outer shell of your Kia looking as pristine as the interior. To start, give your vehicle an old fashioned car wash yourself or take it to your preferred detailing location to get the job done without hassle. If you really want to glow in the sunlight, make sure to use some car wax to get your paint glistening at every angle. Then, you can wipe down your chrome accents and front grille to bring your entire look together. We also recommend that you take care of your side mirrors and all of your windows, because leftover mud from the winter months can really put a damper on your presence. Lastly, wipe your wheels down to glide over the pavement in style. 

We at DeMontrond Kia suggest that you spring clean your Kia in Houston, TX, today! If you need some extra equipment to get the job done right, get in touch with our Parts Department

"I recommended a CU preferred Dealer"

Problem Solved!

UPDATE: After the bad experience over the weekend, Monday Martin Carbajal, new car sales manager reached out and asked for a chance to make the situation right. He offered to provide a drive-out price as requested and went the extra mile to put together an acceptable quote and even sent a sales order showing the price details. My son chose to pursue the offer because of price and the "warranty forever". He purchased the car Monday night with Martin's help. Martin really stepped up, genuinely apologizing for the situation and worked hard to correct the bad experience and turned it around. I appreciate Martin pushing to convert what was a disappointing exchange into a satisfying transaction. The dealer won't get 5 stars because the situation should never have happened but Martin did turn it around and HE deserves 5 stars. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I recommended my son to a Shell Federal Credit Union "preferred" dealership, DeMontrond Kia and have come to regret the whole experience. DeMontrond Kia had a Sorento listed via Cars.com that was listed less than any other EX models on the site @ $28,712. He went to the dealership with an approval letter from the Credit Union. When he arrived, the salesperson he met was very nice but said that was the maximum lowest price with all available rebates and incentive deals and that the car price for my son was actually $33,500. They left the dealership having felt "baited and switched". Later the same day, I submitted an online request for a price and was emailed by the Internet Manger of the dealership Thom R. asking how he could help. I explained my son's experience and asked for a drive-out price on the specific car stock # if indeed the advertised Cars.com price was NOT actually the price. He responded with an excuse that the "price you saw earlier was a mistake where the website was using all available rebates and actually double dipping one of the rebates." He then listed the pricing of the car with available rebates and incentives with a drive-out price of $29,112. I noticed that my son would not qualify for the Loyalty discount of $1500 and asked if he would still honor the drive-out price of $30,612. He replied that "Yes all they would lose is the $1,500 owner loyalty. So yes $30,612 Drive out." I replied that the pricing was acceptable for the specific stock number at the stated drive-out price of $30,612 and asked how we needed to secure the car. He offered that he could come do the paperwork and take the car and they would finish with the Credit Union on Monday. I replied that He would head to the dealership and thanked him for making the earlier bad experience right again. At almost the same time I was replying, he replied that "I’m sorry it’s the sell price of $30,612 plus TT&l". I replied that I had asked for the drive-out price at the beginning and that he himself had referenced "drive-out" price twice in our email exchange. I asked him to honor the price he had quoted as drive-out but he refused. I plan to submit a request to have this dealership removed from my Credit Union's preferred dealer list. If the list indeed exists to provide customers with dealers committed to an honest car-buying experience and not "pay to play", I am hopeful they will be removed. I was forced to select 1 star, they deserved NONE.
