Paint the Valley Blue

National Police Week starts today! National Police week started in 1962 with a proclamation signed by President John F. Kennedy declaring May 15th as Peace Officers Memorial Day with the remainder of the week being National Police Week.

In 2016, two Mother's of police officers in Staunton, Virginia decided that our community should do more to celebrate Staunton Police Department. Paint Staunton Blue was born, but now in 2017, the momentum has grown, and the event is now Paint the Valley Blue.

Charlie Obaugh of Staunton is in our second year of sponsorship. Our community can drop by to pick up a lapel ribbon, yard sign, window sticker, or blue light bulb for your porch light for free to show your support for local law enforcement.

Happy New Year from Charlie Obaugh KIA of Staunton, Virginia

Charlie Obaugh KIA of Staunton is looking forward to 2017! In 2017 we have big changes underway. We are looking forward to serving our existing customers who are already part of the Obaugh family and welcoming new customers into the family as well. We would like to thank the Shenandoah Valley for their business at Charlie Obaugh KIA in 2016!

Some highlights for 2017 for Charlie Obaugh KIA are going to be enormous, yet to the betterment of service to our customers. We are already underway in constructing Certified KIA Service & Part's departments to the east end of our existing KIA building. We will be able to better serve our KIA customers, and any other make and model. Our KIA customers will have a one stop shop for all their vehicle maintenance, parts, and accessory needs. This expansion to the Charlie Obaugh Auto Group Service and Part's departments will help decrease service waiting times and we will be able to serve more of our Obaugh family at once.

Another exciting mid-year plan for Charlie Obaugh KIA of Staunton is an addition of an onsite car wash. Each service appointment with Charlie Obaugh currently comes with a complimentary wash and vacuum as one of the many amenities to our Certified Service department. This will also ensure that when you come for an oil change, tires, alignments, or whatever service you need at Charlie Obaugh of Staunton you will be assured to be in and out as quickly as possible.

KIA will be releasing the all new KIA Niro. The 2017 KIA Niro is a hybrid crossover with an estimated 50 mpg! It has a dual clutch transmission. Check out the iTunes Niro App here for vidoes, 360 views, and more! Niro also has Nirobot, a chatbot for Facebook messenger that answers questions instantly! Niro also has wireless charging and the UVO Infotainment system. Niro also comes with KIA's suite of technologies to assist it's driver called DriveWise. You won't be disappointed. We should start seeing Niro inventory become available at Charlie Obaugh KIA in Staunton by the end of January.

Needless to say 2017 will be a big year for Charlie Obaugh KIA of Staunton. We are excited for the new year, but also reflect on the big year we've had in 2016. We couldn't do it without the community in the Shenandoah Valley! Thank you for supporting Charlie Obaugh Auto Group as your local KIA dealer.

 





2017 NIRO SETS GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® TITLE FOR LOWEST FUEL CONSUMPTION BY A HYBRID VEHICLE

The all-new 2017 Kia Niro drove into New York City, setting a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title.  After hitting the road in Los Angeles on Dec. 3, the 2017 Niro cruised into New York City on Sunday, Dec. 11 and set a GUINNESS WORLD RECORD title for the lowest fuel consumption driving across the USA country from coast to coast (hybrid car).  The new record-setting mark is an incredible 76.6 mpg.  The Niro EX was driven by Wayne Gerdes of Carlsbad, California, and co-driver Robert Winger of Williamsburg, Virginia.  During the course of their 3,715.4 mile drive, the vehicle used only 48.5 gallons or 4.1 tanks of gas.  The vehicle was not altered in any way for the attempt, and in fact the Niro carried a co-driver and had a week's worth of clothes for each driver as well as computers, navigation equipment, and two full spares on board!
