I just bought a 2007 kia optima . a tire repair man said that my front right tire keeps getting eaten away by the fact that my front end is aluminum and is bent and can not be fixed. is this true and what shall I do?

Had similar issues with a dodge pickup. Drove me crazy. Had alignment done twice. Eventually put on new front tires and problem went away. Completely.
- Check tire pressures.
- Jack vehicle up and put on jack stands. Inspect all suspension components for loose or worn bushings, ball joints, linkages.
- Exchange tires from rear to front and front to rear.
- Test drive.
- If problem is still there, have alignment checked.
Hope this helps.
If you mean the blower motor is not working at times, it can be the motor, a resistor, or the switch on the dash. Could also be a bad connection in the wiring harness. When the blower won't work, a mechanic would check for power and ground at the motor.
check the tyres on the car you will see 3# 175.14.60 or similar.the middle # is the wheel size.(the reason ive sent it this way is that some people change the wheels/tyres to suit themselves)this way you can check them out yourself.....
Both of my visors broke -- first the one right after purchasing (had dealership repair) then the other (still under warantee, so dealership repaired). The lady said the 2007 Optimas had a "bad batch" of visors and many needed to be replaced. Fine. Now the driver's side broke again. It just needs to be replaced. I love the Kia, hate the visors. Not a bad payoff for the reasonable price. So far, the only thing that has broken.
I had the same problem on our 2003 sedona. Turned out one of the wires in the driver's seat belt is infamous for going bad and the repair is usually replacing the seat belt. I would have thought they would have cured that by now.
