yes it probably does but it makes it a little difficult as a daily driver. i have dealt with vibration before but this is way past the stage of vibration. is there some special mirror i could get or something?

Remove it. Thats what I did. So long as you have to too side ones. Gives you a better view of the road ahead too!

Maybe try to put something between the mirror and the mount, like a thin peice of foam or rubber? I did this with a few rattling dash pieces, not sure if it would apply. As for my rearview, I removed it completely. The bass kept knocking it off and I was getting annoyed putting it back on, so I just kept it off. Now I don't even notice it's gone.

Nothing really you can do................. try finding the right spot for rear-viewing abilities and then permanently fix the pivot joint. As for Radioshakfan, I so wanted to comment on that pic you have there on the left, but unfortunately I have to be a responsible thread poster now. IT was so much more fun back in the old days when I could cause havoc and run ammuck. And it was going to be SO damn funny too.......... and yet all in good humor

OK you are cool. Should have said your windows break tho, thats a much bigger 'show off' factor.

yeah, kia really beefed up their cars this year. they now include engines, which some people find increases the car's operation. Others see it as useless extra weight added. i still have decided if the pros outweigh the cons. some of the more luxury kia's even have cushioning and cloth scraps on the seats (instead of plain old springs)
LOL that's a classic

no u dont have to live with it, you can always kill yourself and take the easy way out

Radioshakfag.......your a waste of web space
