Bloggers & Their Cars @KiaMotorsKuwait

Blessed are these engines that transport us gracefully from point A to point B. One must not forget that as a human needs a checkup, a vehicle needs a service!

It is always a good idea to return to the vehicles original service center every 5,000KM to ensure that everything is running smoothly.

If not for the mechanics sound advice, I would not have found out that my break pads need replacing! That is another tale for another time tho!

I arrived at the Kia Service Center at 9AM. I was under the impression I would follow the same procedure as always, park inside the center, go inside, take a number, wait for a serviceman to accompany me where they scribble on a piece of paper that has a mock representation of my vehicle wherever there may be any scratches etc. Although this takes a couple of hours, it is very useful as the serviceman inquires if you have anything you wish to add for them to check (I usually ask them to check the sunroof as its a magnet for dust and leaves which cause the sunroof to open and not close).

However, expansion had led to the opening of a quick service center, which I was instructed to go towards. I regret that decision for I was not asked if I had anything else I wished to check (I believe I have a screw loose in the speakers in the back that make the bass buzz) and also, the car was not washed after the service! However, the mechanic (Raj) was extremely helpful as I stood over his shoulder asking questions about the car. I came to know that the vehicle takes 4L of engine oil, and that the best lubricant for door hinges is grease.

I have named my vehicle and branded it with the autobot sign on the back as well.

Without further ado, I present to you, M’Kia Spartan:
