Carl Hoo is a Bessada Kia customer, and the second place winner of the global Kia Customer Idea Contest to help Kia improve their Service Departments and the customer experience.
The idea that allowed Carl to take home second place was to install display monitors within the Service Department waiting area that would show the status of vehicles being serviced. The information would be organized by vehicle and would show each customer by whom, when and where the vehicle is being serviced. It would also include an estimate of 'ready-time' based on the Service Manager's estimate or industry standards dependant on what maintenance is being performed.
Please join us in congratulating Carl on such a wonderful achievement.
Carl, we are so proud!

When you’re driving, there’s nothing more comforting than knowing you’re in a safe vehicle. Fortunately, if you’re behind the wheel of a new Kia, you will benefit from a world-class safety system. New Kia models come with passive safety systems, such as advanced front airbags, side-curtain airbags in the front and second row, and front-seat-mounted side airbags. Active safety features such as a blind-spot detection system, a lane-departure system, and a collision alert system can be equipped in a new Kia to help you avoid an accident altogether. Further bolstering Kia’s reputation for safety is its safety reputation. Every car in Kia’s 2013 lineup earned a top safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
To learn more about the safety features that you can expect in a new Kia, stop by Bessada Kia, located near Ajax and Pickering. Call us at (289) 301-0146 if you have any questions, and head to our website to see our complete inventory of new and used Kia vehicles.

New Kia vehicles are built to achieve excellent fuel economy ratings, but only if they are driven efficiently and maintained routinely at the Kia dealer. Fortunately, making a few adjustments to your driving habits can result in large gains in fuel economy. Read this article for tips on how to increase the fuel efficiency of your new Kia.
Avoid Aggressive Driving
Speeding, rapid acceleration, and braking is not only inefficient, but it is also unsafe. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that aggressive driving can cause fuel economy to suffer by up to 33 percent on the highway and 5 percent around town.
Observe the Speed Limit
To achieve the best fuel economy on the highway, traveling at 80 km/h is optimal. For each 8 km/h beyond 80 km/h, you can expect to pay $0.06 more per liter of fuel. Following the speed limit can improve your fuel economy by up to 14 percent.
Getting rid of the golf clubs, toolbox, and ice chests in the truck that you rarely use can make your car both easier to handle and more fuel efficient. An extra 45 kilograms could reduce your gas mileage by up to 2 percent if you have a smaller Kia.
Many new Kia models come with automatic start/stop technology, which prevents idling by turning off the engine when the car is at a complete stop. If your new Kia does not come with this feature, turn the engine off when you are parked.
Use Cruise Control
Cruise control will maintain a constant speed in your new Kia, which encourages the engine RPMs to stay relatively stable. By keeping the engine running consistently, cruise control helps you save gas.
Keeping up with car maintenance is a very important part of achieving the best fuel efficiency in your new Kia. For quality maintenance, come to Bessada Kia near Ajax and Pickering. Visit our Kia dealership online to learn more about the maintenance and repair services we offer, and call us at (289) 301-0146 for more information.
