Second owner, purchased with 50,000 miles on it

Vehicle

2003 Kia Spectra GSX 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Purchased this car in 2009 with 50,000 miles on the engine. With the bald tires on the car, it road like a roller coaster ride on the freeway. Purchased new tires and it drove almost 100% better. Replaced the entire radiator about 2 years later. Replaced the ball joint 6 months before that. Replaced the right passenger side head light about 5 times since we purchased the car, at some point it completely stopped working and my husband switched around the light from the brights to the regular headlight to salvage it. Parts are extremely hard to find for this car, we've usually have to purchase online and when we do find the part in store it is usually more expensive than say a honday or acura.

Favorite Features

I like the deep trunk.

Suggested Improvements

the right headlight seems to be faulty. Keep having to replace just that side.
