I have been having non stop problems with my car. I accidentally bought a kia optima. I was only 17 and had no idea what auto suggestion was. Now I'm 24 and I have been paying for a car that does not run. Let's say I'm driving the car right now on the free way. The engine is warmed up and all of the sudden it will just die.
