Customer Question

JA: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?
Customer: No not a gas hog. It starts ok, but it may cut off and I start it up again.
JA: What is the model of your '10 Kia?
Customer: Optima 2007 EX 6 cyclinder
JA: Are you fixing your Optima yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Nothing yet, I cannot drive it because it only goes 10 miles
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No I have really been blessed, because the only major thing I have had to be fixed was I had to get a new starter and that is all. So I guess I can"t complain much about repairs.
