Both Kia's I have owned, a 00 and a 01 have had tape deck issues. Sometimes the tape plays really well, other times it begans to drag...it does this with original tapes and self recorded ones. It kinda s$%^. :angry: I was thinking of putting in a new stereo/cd player in...what brand do you recommed? I will be having Route 12/v out of Gorham NH install it. Do you think this will solve my other problem?
