green bay winter car tips

It’s here. The cold, the snow, the salt – it’s everything we’re used to and everything that can be a bit annoying each winter! Keeping your car clean during the winter can seem like an impossible feat, but the service experts at our car dealerships in Green Bay are determined to help you keep your car looking and running great. Here are a few tips to consider!

Rubber Car Mats

Simple? Yes. Helpful? You bet! One of the simplest ways to protect the inside of your vehicle from salt is with rubber mats. Our staff can help you find mats to fit any price range, tailored to your car’s sizing needs. Best of all, it doesn’t take an expert to do – you simply remove the existing carpet mats and replace them with the rubber ones. When the season is over, a spray of a hose and a light scrubbing will have them looking good as new for next year!

Wash When Possible

Subzero temperatures can make this one difficult, but washing your car on a regular basis is a great idea. The catch here is it’s best to do this when the temperature is around 40 degrees or higher – a rarity during winters in Wisconsin! If you have the ability to wash your vehicle throughout the winter you’d be smart to do so, as it helps clear the surfaces of salt residue. The most important part about the washing process is making sure it’s completely dried. This includes door jams!


There are pros and cons to cozy, heated garages. Though it protects your vehicle from the elements and helps melt off ice and snow, they generally cause excess moisture to stick around which speeds up corrosion. Basically, don’t feel bad if you aren’t able to park your car in a garage – there are pros and cons to each!

The Ford Logo: A Story

By Dorsch Ford Kia | Posted in Ford, Green Bay, Made In The USA, Vehicle Research on Friday, October 23rd, 2015 at 6:31 PM

Brand recognition has become a huge part of culture. From McDonald’s to Coca Cola, Apple to Walmart, logos are the driving force behind this phenomenon, helping people everywhere quickly identify something they know and trust. For over a century, Ford’s logo has been synonymous with quality and innovation. It hasn’t always looked the same, though. Here’s a quick history of the Ford logo.

In 1902, Henry Ford wanted to start his own motor company. Because he didn’t have enough money to do so, he enlisted the help of 12 investors, collecting a mere $28,000. That doesn’t seem like much now, but back in the day it was a good chunk of change. The first Ford models were introduced to the public within a year! Their value for the money and high quality made them quite popular, and they were a huge success. Years later, the brand continues to manufacture fantastic, dependable vehicles.

The original Ford logo was created in black and white and included the entire name – “Ford Motor Co.” with “Detroit Mich.” at the bottom. This original logo is considerably more ornate than later versions. Just 6 years after the first logo was created, the design was changed to just say “Ford,” as it does today.

For most of its life, the Ford logo has featured the oval shape – this was an important design decision. The oval shape represents elegance and simplicity, while simultaneously providing maximum vision area and distinctiveness. Though it’s been refreshed a few times, the Ford logo does and always has stood for expert craftsmanship and a company that’s committed to its customers.

To find a Ford that could be right for you, visit Dorsch East in Green Bay! Our friendly staff would love to offer as much or as little help you may need in the car buying process. Visit us today!

The Importance of Emission Testing in Green Bay

By Dorsch Ford Kia | Posted in Automobile Safety, Service, Tips, Vehicle Advice & Tips on Thursday, October 8th, 2015 at 6:29 PM

the importance of emissions testing in Green Bay, WI

There are many beautiful things about living in Green Bay. We have the pleasure of getting to experience the beauty of each of the four seasons in full effect! We are lucky to be in an environment that is overall very clean. In order to keep our community and world clean, it’s important that our vehicles operate properly.

Why test emissions?

Emission testing exists to help control the amount of pollutants that exit your vehicle. These tests check the levels of hazardous materials that may escape through vehicles with combustion engines. In most areas, emission testing is a mandatory practice – especially more urban and suburban areas with higher congestion. They are incredibly important to both you (the vehicle owner) and those around you (the environment).

Help yourself

From the perspective of a vehicle owner, emission testing can hint at possible problems that your car may be having. There are many vehicle parts that help to control emissions, so if you don’t pass the test it’s likely due in part to a problem with one of those parts – catalytic converters, exhaust gas recirculation valves, and positive crankcase ventilation systems help control the release of harmful pollutants.

Help the environment

From an environmental standpoint, proper vehicle care and lowest-possible emissions help keep our world healthy and happy. Obviously it’s impractical to think everyone could stop driving. The technology for electric and alternative fuel cars has evolved, but not quite enough to make them widely adapted. For the time being, the best way to ensure you’re doing your part to help the environment is by keeping up with your vehicle’s maintenance.

At Dorsch, we’re proud to carry vehicles from Ford, Lincoln, and Kia, who strive to manufacture efficient, reliable, high-quality vehicles designed with the environment in mind. Visit our car dealership in Green Bay today to discover fantastic models or have your emissions tested today!

The Stadium Tax in Brown County Has Ended!

By Dorsch Ford Kia | Posted in Dealer Information, Financing, Green Bay on Thursday, October 1st, 2015 at 5:02 PM

no more stadium tax in brown county

As of midnight, patrons at businesses in Brown County are no longer required to pay the 0.5% tax implemented 15 years ago to fund the renovations at Lambeau Field! The improvements made to the stadium are absolutely stunning, but we’re thrilled to now have the ability to help our customers save just a bit extra on the purchase of their vehicle.

Like many other big-ticket retailers and businesses in Brown County, our inventory at Dorsch was much more affected by this stadium tax due to the higher price tag. We pride ourselves on giving our customers the opportunity to save as much as possible on the purchase of their vehicle, and this only helps to reduce the price even more. Consider this: if the purchase price of a vehicle were $40,000, you would’ve paid an additional $200 with this tax. It may not seem like much, but we understand that every dollar counts!

We’ve gone through major changes with our computer systems in order to account for this change. All of our programming in sales, parts, service, and the body shop had to be changed to get rid of the additional sales tax on top of purchase prices for everything we sell.

Ready to start exploring new vehicles? Now is a great time to visit Dorsch in Green Bay. Stop by our East showroom (new and pre-owned) at 2641 Eaton Road or our West showroom (pre-owned) at 2564 Lineville Road to browse our selection of in-stock vehicles today! Our dedicated sales staff will be happy to help you find the perfect car for your needs.

Need Service? Dorsch West Can Help!

With the official arrival of Fall, it’s time to start thinking about pre-winter maintenance for your vehicle. Yes, it’s sad to say it, but before we know it the snow will be back around. Before the temperatures dip too low, the seasoned maintenance specialists at our dealership and repair center in Green Bay, WI want to help get your car in tip top shape. Here are a few maintenance items you should attend to in the coming weeks!


There’s nothing worse than getting stranded with a dead battery in cold weather. If your battery is more than three or four years old, it’s definitely time to have it checked for power capacity. Even if the battery isn’t old, you should check the connections to be sure everything is securely fastened for optimal use.

Heating and defrost system

You’ll definitely be getting plenty of use out of that heating system, so you’ll want to make sure it’s in great working order. Both front and rear defrost also get heavy use during the winter, so make sure those items will be able to clear your windows.


A thorough inspection of the brake system including drums, rotors, and linings is an important thing to do any time of year, but particularly before the winter months. Safe brakes are extra important during winter since you’ll be driving on icy or snowy roads.

Wiper blades

In addition to the defrost systems, your wiper blades are the main thing to keep your windows free from the inevitable precipitation of all forms. Investing in a great pair of wiper blades will save you a lot of stress and hassle when the ice hits.
