Default 2003 Dream Cruiser 2.4t auto

Hello All:

It appears that the in-laws are giving my daughter, the mother-in-law's 2003Turbo Dream Cruiser. The car is well cared for and has 33,000 miles. It has a drop in K&N filter ( both families have them in everything) and an upgraded stereo as the only mods.

What do I need to know about the car?
What simple, cheap, worthy mods (airbox, etc) can be made? No exhaust mods.
What maintenance would you do to it? Plugs? I want a nice running, dependable car for a 16 year old girl, that won't strand her somewhere.

I like to tinker and can't leave well enough alone. I don't want a race car for my 16 year old, but stock sucks, and so does having the exact car as someone else.

Thanks for looking.

Find out what oil has been used so far. If it's not synthetic, change it now and stay with that.

Here's the cheapest and best mod to your air box:

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.
