The new 2018 Kia Sorento has just garnered top safety accolades from the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety). The 2018 Sorento, a midsize SUV, was awarded the IIHS’s most prestigious award and labeled a Top Safety Pick Plus (TSP+). In order for the 2018 Kia Sorento to earn this award, it had to meet essential safety criteria set forth by the IIHS: it had to “earn good ratings in five crashworthiness tests – driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, rood strength and head restraints – as well as an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention” (http://www.iihs.org/iihs/ratings). The Sorento’s safety features will help you stay safe on the road, providing protection in the event of an accident.
The Top Safety Pick Plus award is linked to both the 2018 Kia Sorento SX Limited trim and the SX trim with Advanced Technology Package. These trim levels boast new, innovative headlights, as well as a remarkable list of standard safety features which include Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), and a variety of other innovative features designed with safety and control in mind. By giving this award to the 2018 Kia Sorento, the IIHS recognizes Kia’s commitment to safety on the road.

Though windshield wipers may seem low on the priority list when it comes to servicing your vehicle, they are honestly one of the most crucial parts of maintaining adequate visibility. Imagine driving in the rain or through a snowstorm without wipers. That’s why it’s important to regularly inspect and replace wiper blades.
When Do I Need To Replace My Windshield Wipers?
A good rule of thumb is to inspect your wipers every six to twelve months, depending on the weather in the area you live. Here in Missouri, we have long, cold, hazardous winters, which can cause you to wear down your wiper blades more often.
How To Replace Your Wiper Blades
When you go about replacing worn wiper blades, you should start off by measuring your current wipers to get an idea of the needed length. Once you have your new set of wipers, you should remove the old ones by lifting them away from the windshield and pressing the tab on the underside of the wiper to slide it off of the wiper arm.
Once the old blades are removed, you can easily replace them by sliding the new wipers onto the wiper arms until you hear a click, then lowering them back onto the windshield.
When you replace wiper blades, it’s a good idea to get them somewhere you trust. For that purpose, you can come here to Jack Miller Kia Parts.
