How Often Should I Wash My Kia Vehicle?
Kia has been lauded for being one of the most stylish brands on the road. No matter if you choose the longtime favorite Soul, the efficient Optima, or the all-new Telluride, you will enjoy being the envy of other drivers. Since you invested a nice chunk of change in a Kia vehicle that suits your lifestyle and in a color that you love, you want it to stay beautiful for a long time. One of the best ways to do that is by giving your Kia a bath on a regular basis. So how often should you wash your Kia model? Read on to find out!
Most resources will tell you to wash your Kia about once a month. For the most part, we agree with that recommendation, but you may have to do it more often depending on how much nature comes into contact with your vehicle. Most vehicles will get splattered with bugs or be the occasional victim of messy birds. As if they are unsightly enough, those bug guts and bird droppings can wreak havoc on your Kia’s paint job, so you will need to give it a washing as often as once a week during the summer. We also recommend that you wax your Kia twice a year (once in the spring, once in the fall) to help protect your paint and to keep the vehicle looking like new.
When Should I Wash My Kia in the Winter?
Winter is now a long ways off, but we know that it can be an especially difficult time to wash your Kia, especially when temperatures are below freezing and your vehicle is covered in salt. We recommend making a stop at the carwash as soon as the outside temperature reaches 40 degrees.
