COLORADO SPRINGS AUTO REPAIR

Thank you for checking out Groff's Automotive blog!  

You'll mainly see a lot from Brian Groff and Wendy LaBree as they do the 710-SHOW right here in Colorado Springs, as we find that's the most entertaining way to help educate you on your vehicle and vehicle repairs and maintenance.

From brake repair to oil changes and everything inbetween, Groff's Automotive is the best automotive repair shop in Colorado Springs but, we may be a little biased.

Make sure to keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter and watch the 710-SHOW LIVE recording every Thursday and listen to the recorded show every Saturday morning at 7:10am on Colorado Springs Best Radio Station (GOLD 2019), 107.3 and 1530, Mountain Country.

710-SHOW Hyundai and Kia Recalls

Engine fires and spontaneous combustion. Two things you really don't want to think could happen to you but, if you own a Kia or Hyundai, there's a chance it could. There's recent recalls for these issues and even just last week, a Kia spontaneously went up in flames in the driveway of a Florida family. We take a look into why this could be happening and what the manufacturers are doing, or not doing, about it. The 710-SHOW is brought to you by Groff's Automotive with your hosts, Wendy LaBree and Brian Groff and heard every Saturday morning at 7:10am on 107.3 and 1530, Mountain Country.

710-SHOW and In Cabin Air Filter

CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO You may not think about them in fact, you may not even know if your car has one or not.  But, a lot of the time the reason  your air vents blow dust, have odors or don't blow like they should, could be attributed to this filter.  They get clogged with dust, soot, exhaust and pollutants and even dead leaves and critters which can lead to bigger, more expensive repairs.  The next 710-SHOW is going to focus on in cabin air filters and why they're so important, why they were introduced and why they're expensive to replace. Listen to the show this Saturday at 7:10am on 107.3 and 1530, Mountain Country. The 710-SHOW is brought to you by Groff's Automotive with your hosts, Wendy LaBree and Brian Groff
