Go have 10 root canals!
By dean_o on
2003 Kia Spectra LS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
This was the most painful vehicle I have ever owned. We bought it used, and with in the first month had to have 2 transmissions put in. What kind of car needs that? The interior is just an awful design. The alternator went 3 times! The front wheel mounts on both sides were shot. The seat belt buckle broke, come one. The cruise control worked went it wanted too. And for 3 years the check engine light was on and after numerous checks by mechanics no one could get it to turn off and stay off. If you have a choice of someone giving you a Kia Spectra or having to pay for 10 root canals... take the root canals!
Favourite feature? It is now a big square pile of scrap metal.
Take the radiator cap off and screw a new car underneath.
