Five Kia Models Make List of Best Choices for a New Car

2018 Kia Soul

U.S. News & World Report released its Best Choices for a New Car list not long ago. Five Kia models stand among the top 28 new cars of 2018. The editors made their choices based on the car’s price, cost of ownership, and predictability rating as determined by J.D. Power.

Of the 28 cars on the list, the 2018 Kia Soul stole the show and secured the number one spot. The Kia Soul earned a reliability score of 5/5 and an overall score of 9.1/10. The family model earned an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ and boasts an affordable starting price.

The Kia Rio came in second on the Best Choices for a New Car list. The editors noted its smooth performance, affordability, and intuitive technology as winning factors.

The 2018 Kia Niro earned recognition for its high fuel economy, and the spacious cabin makes it ideal for family vacations. Plus, its nimble handling and exhilarating performance prove the Kia Niro can be great for daily commutes.

The Kia Sportage boasts supportive seats and high safety scores. Those two factors netted it the top spot on the Best New Cars for Teens list. Those same features landed it a spot among the top 28 choices for a new car too!

When it comes to compact cars, the Kia Forte holds its own. Excellent fuel economy and a quiet cabin put it a touch above competitors, netting the Forte a spot on the list.

The “Most Reliable Pickup Award” Goes to the Isuzu D-Max

Jack Miller Kia - Most Reliable Pickup Award

At the first-ever Professional Pickup and 4X4 Awards, the one-and-only Isuzu D-Max earned the coveted “Most Reliable Pickup Award.” Selected by a panel of twelve Pick-Up Professionals, the Isuzu D-Max impressed the judges with its high capabilities both on and off the road, as well as its high-quality build standards and workhorse spirit.

The new generation of the Isuzu D-Max introduces a powerful 1.9-liter turbo diesel engine, which boasts a 3.5-ton towing capacity and one-ton payload capacity, in addition to delivering a more sophisticated, more efficient, and quieter overall drive.

The judges also considered the “soft” benefits of purchasing an Isuzu D-Max: Isuzu D-Max owners can sleep easy at night thanks to advanced asset protections like a three-year paint warranty, a six-year anti-corrosion warranty, and a five-year/125,000-mile warranty, plus roadside rescue and recovery services.

The Isuzu D-Max was introduced in 2017. Still relatively new in the saturated pickup market, the Isuzu D-Max has already established a strong reputation as a hard-working, dependable truck for drivers looking for a sport, work, or combination pick-up.

On top of its Most Reliable Pickup Award, the new Isuzu D-Max also earned the “Pick Up of the Year” title at the 2018 WhatVan? Awards. The successes keep piling on for the exciting new Isuzu D-Max! Learn more about this workhorse right here at Jack Miller Kia.

Your Kia Sorento is practically perfect when it rolls off the assembly line, but we at Jack Miller Kia Parts think you can always improve upon perfection. That’s why we offer such a wide selection of accessories to outfit your Sorento vehicle.

Convenient technology

Although winter is behind us, spring and summer will be heating up fast, and getting into a stuffy, hot car is a miserable start to a drive. Equipping your Kia with the convenience of Remote Start will ensure your car cools down before you and your passengers take your places. Road trip season is right around the corner — make sure your Sorento is equipped with this sophisticated technology.

Road trip storage solutions

Your Sorento is designed to handle any weekend escape or extended road trip. But for trips that require oversized gear, it’ll need a little help. There are numerous roof mounts and cargo carriers designed to accommodate your adventure gear, extra luggage, and coolers so the interior is simply less cluttered. With stuff out of the way, your passengers can relax, stretch out, and enjoy the journey.

Interior protection

Shoes covered in dirt, sand, mud, and gunk equal floors covered in dirt, sand, mud, and gunk. You work hard to maintain the integrity of your Kia’s appearance — don’t let Mother Nature muck it up. Invest in all-weather floor mats to protect your automotive investment.

Since your Sorento is in it for the long haul, it’s inevitable that maintenance will need to be done. When your Kia needs a replacement part or an extended repair, don’t be fooled that any part will do. Investing in Kia parts from a Kia dealer, like Jack Miller Kia Parts, means that you’re getting the highest quality product, engineered specifically for your vehicle. So, when your Sorento needs help recovering from your latest adventure or is due for a check-up, don’t trust its repair to a non-Kia dealership or repair shop. Take it to Jack Miller Kia Parts.
