    Got home Wednesday afternoon after sleeping in the U-Haul truck in a WalMart parking lot (got to the salvage yard 10 minutes too late and they were closed)..
    Got the car home and started doing preliminary repairs... Replaced both driver side doors and did some early adjustments on them... It's gonna take some time to get all the bugs and damage worked out...but the "start" looks pretty good...
    He's a link to some pictures...

    Hey Dave, I know you have been talking to a lot of people about fixing the broken (on & off) speedo/odometer on the 06 Kia Spectra... I have got kind of lost in trying to follow all of the different threads you have been apart of.

    Do you have a quick/easy/cheap solution to fix this problem? Even if you direct me to your best response on a post, that would be appreciated. I love my Kia and I don't want to get rid of it! Thank you for all you do Dave!!!

    Hey dave, the wheel bearing we replaced seem to only last 20k miles. Is there anywhere to find the whole front hub assembly with bearing installed? Thanks

    You might want to check the disc brake pads while you are at it.. They are cheap enough to replace and save your rotors if they are getting close to the metal...
    I put ceramic pads on the rear of my wife's car at about the same mileage as yours...
    I'm glad you won't have to look forward to monthly outgo.

    So far I've had an 01 Spectra GS, 06 SX and now this one. They have all been reliable. I have already picked up some NGK Iridium Plugs for my Spectra as I've used these on my V6 Tiburon and the car ran great afterwards.

    I purchased my current car cash so not having payments is incredible.

    I'll be picking ordering the Belts from RockAuto next week and will tackle the gig soon after. I will flush the coolant as well while I'm at it.

    The coolant is not worth worrying about...Just change it.. Less than $20.

    I hope things are going better for you also... Right after I got my SparK Blue 06 Spectra the company I worked for closed it's doors...Me being 60 at the time was out of my last job.... Was glad there were no payments on mine... or I would have lost my "Blue Phoenix" (raised from the dead!!).
    We'll be here to help when you need us!
