Cheap little sporty sedan

1996 Kia Sephia LS 4dr Sedan
Review
Took a gamble when my '83 Accord gave up in late '96 and bought a Sephia LS. With the exception of a "Check Engine" light at 6,000 miles, it has been trouble-free, reliable and sporty transportation ever since. It performs just as well now with over 160,000 miles on the clock as it did when it was new, the paint still looks nice, and the styling is not yet obsolete. For what I paid ($12K), I feel I got a lot of bang for the buck.
Favorite Features
The powertrain is wonderful: Mazda 1.8L DOHC 4-cylinder @ 122 horsepower mated with 4-speed electronically-controlled automatic. Able to smoke more expensive competitors from Toyota and Honda if necessary.
Suggested Improvements
Brakes have a short useful life and need frequent fixing; dashboard is a piece of crap--most of vinyl covering on it simply peeled off (now covered by a DashMat); fuel economy not so good around town
