2004 Kia Spectra 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


We bought this Spectra used at 32,000. Following year we put in a new clutch. We had 4 CV joints put in and now the Rack and Pinion is gone. Car is at 64000 miles. The dealership wants $1200 to replace. Called Kia and they offered no help. Have spent tons of money on this car and it always makes funny noises. I found a friend to replace rack with a used one for $250.00. I am stuck with this car for now but would never buy anything from KIA.

Better quality of parts and take care of your customers. If you take care of the people buying your products they will take care of YOU.
