Discover Kia Quality in Green Bay!

By Dorsch Ford Kia | Posted in Kia, Kia Cadenza, Kia Soul on Wednesday, June 24th, 2015 at 3:29 PM

high quality Kia vehicles in Green BayKia is leading the way! Kia, one of the three fantastic brands carried at Dorsch in Green Bay, leads the automotive industry of non-premium brands in initial quality according to a study done by J.D. Powers and Associates. The initial quality study measures problems experienced by buyers and lessees of new vehicles in the first 90 days of possession.

All Kia models improved year over from 2014. Kia had two specific models, the Soul and Cadenza, in the top 10. This is the first time that Kia has had vehicles ranked that high among competitors. Among Kia’s highest ranked models were the Kia Rio for “small car” category, Kia Optima for “midsize car,” and the Kia Cadenza for “large car.” Normally, brands that launch new vehicle models tend to struggle in rankings, but Kia was able to avoid the hit this year with their new Sedona Minivan.

Not only did Kia land 2nd in the industry for quality, but they also ranked very well in the technology category. Kia improved their vehicles in 2015, specifically their audio, communication, entertainment, and navigation. This is impressive because much of the competition has struggled this year in improving the technology elements in their newest vehicles.

The most problematic category in the rankings was in fact technology. Consumer’s complained most about: problems with voice recognition and Bluetooth pairing. This is especially notable due to the fact that Kia ranked so well in this category.

Ford and Lincoln also ranked well as they both ranked in the top ten and were above the industry average in initial quality. Visit Dorsch in Green Bay to discover high-quality vehicles from Kia, Ford, and Lincoln!

High Quality Car Brands at Our Green Bay Dealership

Kia quality at our Green Bay car dealership

Kia leads the way at #2 on the list of highest quality among automobile brands! KIA, Ford, and Lincoln, the exceptional brands available at our car dealership in Green Bay, are all improving their quality and reliability at a much faster rate than Japanese auto makers, according to a news report by J.D. Power & Associates. All 3 brands have increased their quality and reliability rating year over year since 2014. This is not surprising, as their manufacturing plants are very focused on quality, especially in Korea. Meanwhile, Ford and Lincoln have both cut the number of problems in their vehicles from 2014, allowing them to jump a combined 6 spots in the 2015 report.

For years, Japan has been viewed as the leading innovator and producer of automobiles, but this may be no longer! According to a news report by J.D. Power & Associates, Japanese brand automobiles have dropped below the industry average for quality and reliability in 2015. The survey is conducted on consumer opinions after they have owned the vehicle for three months. And this report is not based on the fact that Japanese automobiles have been declining in quality, but rather that brands like KIA, Ford, and Lincoln are all improving their quality and reliability at a much faster rate.

Just like our automobile quality, at Dorsch Ford Lincoln Kia we strive to provide automotive services of unmatched quality. We offer vehicles with great quality, along with customer service and support of even greater quality. In fact, Quality care is one of the greatest advantages of owning a vehicle from our car dealership in Green Bay.

Summer Car Cleaning Tips

By Dorsch Ford Kia | Posted in car wash, Green Bay, Service, Tips, Vehicle Maintenance on Wednesday, June 10th, 2015 at 12:10 PM

vacuum

Now that winter is over, it’s time to start thinking about cleaning the interior and exterior of your vehicle to make sure it is in tip top shape for the summer. Not only will this help the appearance of your vehicle, but don’t you want to protect such an expensive investment? The expert mechanics at Dorsch in Green Bay have a few tips to keep your car looking great.

Interior

Cleaning the interior of your car makes the vehicle more enjoyable and comfortable to be in. Removing all trash and unnecessary items is a good place to start. That ice scraper from winter…toss it in the garage. The pair of winter gloves and hat laying in the back seat…throw them in the closet. After you organize and remove all unwanted items from your vehicle, you can wash the seats, windows, and dashboard with a gentle cleanser. If you have the time and motivation, vacuuming the ground rugs and seats will make the interior look like new.

Exterior

It is important to also keep the exterior of your car clean, as this is what everyone else notices about your vehicle. First, you should wash your car with vehicle specific soap. You can do this simply with a bucket of water and a rag. After drying your vehicle with a fresh rag, you can take the extra step and polish and wax too. Not only does this give your vehicle a significant shine, but it also protects your vehicle from future bugs, dirt, rain, and more.

It is always a good idea to have maintenance checkups done on your vehicle every once in a while. If you have any problems that appear too much for you to handle, be sure to bring your vehicle to the expert mechanics at Dorsch in Green Bay!

Summer is on the horizon and we’re excited for warm weather! There’s nothing quite like a summer road trip with family or friends – and an important step before heading out is making sure your car is ready, too. The expert mechanics at Dorsch in Green Bay are here to help get your car in top shape and fix any issues the harsh winter may have brought on! Here are a few things you should consider having checked.

Air Conditioning

Riding with the windows down is fantastic, but you’ll likely want the air conditioning at some point during the summer! Even if you don’t, it’s important to make sure your air conditioning system is working properly. An easy way to find out if there are any issues is by turning the air on full blast. If it doesn’t reach maximum chill temperature soon, there could be a problem. Our mechanics can run a full diagnostic on your system!

Belts & Hoses

The dry winter air combined with subzero temperatures takes a toll on your entire vehicle, but particularly the belts and hoses. Our seasoned experts will inspect everything to make sure they’re operating properly and replace any that aren’t.

Oxygen Sensor

Feel like your vehicle isn’t getting as great of gas mileage as it should? It could be the oxygen sensor. This helps set the fuel mix that goes into your engine. If it’s not working properly, it causes too much gas to be used and can cut your gas mileage by up to 40%. This is something that should be done every 30,000-50,000 miles or so.

For help with these and other maintenance items, call the mechanics at Dorsch in Green Bay! We’ll have your car running smoothly for your fun trips this summer.

We’re proud to support local organizations and charities in the Green Bay area. For years the Lincoln Motor Company has helped dealerships carry out their missions to support their local communities with a special program. The Lincoln Driven to Give Program (formerly known as Drive Smart for Your School or Drive Smart for a Cause) gives dealerships a unique opportunity to partner with school or charitable organizations for a special test-drive event to raise funds.

Each Lincoln Driven to Give Event can help raise up to $6,000 for the organization, and the process is quite simple. For each valid test-drive completed, the Lincoln Motor Company donates $20 to the participating school or charity. This year, we’re pleased to have partnered with the Wrightstown High School Girls Softball program.

All-New Ford F-150 Now Available at Dorsch!

By Dorsch Ford Kia | Posted in Dealer Information, Ford, Ford F-150, Green Bay, Made In The USA on Tuesday, April 28th, 2015 at 1:12 PM

new 2015 Ford F-150 at Dorsch in Green Bay

We’ve got big news, everyone! The 2015 Ford F-150, the all-new full-size pickup from Ford is now available at Dorsch. The 2015 F-150 is the most capable ever, delivering an incredible combination of power, strength, capability, efficiency, and safety. The vehicle that customers have been waiting months to check out is finally on display in our showroom.

The F-150, part of Ford’s F-Series lineup of trucks, has been America’s best-selling truck for the past 38 consecutive years and the best-selling vehicle for 33 years. Thanks to advanced materials that reduce weight, inhibit corrosion, and improve durability, the new F-150 is better than ever. Faster processors enhance the driving experience and breakthrough cargo management and towing solutions make it incredibly helpful for jobs of all kinds.

Toughest

Ford’s engineers had a tough job: improve the signature fully boxed ladder frame for the next generation. They did just that with high-strength steel to make stronger yet lighter than ever! For the first time, military-grade, high-strength aluminum alloys – used in construction of aerospace materials – are used throughout the body of the F-150. The use of this material improves dent and ding resistance while saving weight. While over 700 pounds of weight have been saved, the new F-150 can tow more, haul more, accelerate quicker, and stop shorter.

Safest

The Ford truck team developed 30 new safety-related innovations for the all new 2015 F-150 Super crew, earning it a five-star Overall Vehicle Score in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program. These features include an advanced restraint system with dual-stage airbags, available inflatable rear safety belts in SuperCrew Models, and Curve Control, which helps drivers stay on their intended path.

If you’d like to learn more about the 2015 Ford F-150, visit Dorsch East! The all-new vehicle continues the tradition of offering a broad selection of trim levels. Visit us today to check it out!

Dorsch & Local Dealerships Partner with East High for Education

By Dorsch Ford Kia | Posted in Green Bay, Vehicle Maintenance on Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015 at 12:18 PM

Let’s face it – cars are here to stay. Though old movies would have predicted that by now we’d all be whizzing around in some sort of car/airplane hybrid vehicle, automobiles are still the number one form of day-to-day transportation in most parts of the world. Employment may fluctuate, but mechanics will always be in demand. At Dorsch, we’re committed to increasing awareness and interest in auto repair education.

We are proud to announce that we’ve partnered with several other local Green Bay area car dealerships and Green Bay East High School to help students land jobs after graduation. We want to make sure students that are interested in becoming an auto mechanic have the tools and resources to make that happen.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has predicted the number of jobs for auto mechanics will grow by 17% in the next five years. For this reason, Dorsch and other Green Bay dealerships work to fund an initiative called City Stadium Automotive. In this program, students at Green Bay East High School are trained on automotive skills and are encouraged to continue their studies and training at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College in Green Bay and start a career as an automotive technician.

In September, City Stadium Automotive will have a grand opening for a new facility that will increase the amount of resources the program will have to offer. Currently, they are operating with three bays and two lifts for instruction. The new facility will have five bays and five lifts, allowing them to accommodate more focused attention and better instruction.

We are excited to be part of this initiative, which serves as a great opportunity for both the students of Green Bay East High School as well as the Green Bay area! Keep an eye out for further information and updates in the future.
