The 2018 Kia Optima is a Critic’s Darling

Every time our Lynchburg car dealership receives a new Kia model, it’s like welcoming a newborn baby into the family. We squeeze its cheeks. We play rousing games of peekaboo. We nurture it as if it were, well, an infant. But when those new baby Kias are ready to leave us with an emptier nest—they grow up so fast—we put on a brave face and let them out on the open road. And there’s perhaps no car better prepared to be on its own than the all-new 2018 Kia Optima. Help us send this well-raised sedan out into the world, will you?

Here’s what the critics, experts, and reviewers think about the new Kia Optima, which is available for sale and lease right now at our Kia of Lynchburg, VA dealership.

Garage Organization & Cleaning Tips for Fall

“I can’t wait to use this pasta maker when I get home!” And there it sits, in your garage, unboxed and awaiting its opportunity to be the star of your family’s Spaghetti Night. Situations like this are inevitable if you’re a homeowner. What was once meant to be a season-long solution turns into 365-day storage, and before you know it, the unboxed, impractical appliances start piling up and limiting space for your vehicles. Let’s remedy that!

Although winter cleaning is all the rage, Autumn is really the perfect season to clean out your cluttered garage and get organized. Here are a few tips to help kick your garage-cleaning project off the ground this fall, so your cars can have a roof over their heads hoods, too.

To get your garage car-ready, it’s best to analyze your level of disorganization first. Do you simply need more storage and a wicked sweeping, or are you hoarder-level disorganized? This will help you determine what needs to be done, as well as if your task can be completed in an afternoon or weekend.

Once you’ve set aside time-based on your estimates, start a system. A basic garage cleaning system might entail three lists and their respective driveway piles: Keep, Toss, and Donate. Park your cars on the street, grab a few large trash bags, and get to work. Continue Reading →

Fresh off last year’s redesign, the 2017 Kia Sorento embarks on its newest journey to the peak of Mount SUV. And at Kia of Lynchburg, we’re ready to be its guide. Let’s take a look at why we believe this year’s Sorento is the crossover that will make drivers curl their lips into a smile.

Kia Sorento SUVs are available in five trims (and their derivatives): the base L, LX, EX, SX, and Limited models.

In the baseline L trim, the Sorento packs a load of features while still remaining a bargain crossover.

A 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine pops out 185 horsepower for an impressive EPA-rated 28 mpg highway in FWD*. Across the entire Sorento lineup, standard equipment includes hill start assist, electronic stability control, ABS, and torque vectoring cornering controls. Continue Reading →
