Best car I've ever owned

2001 Kia Spectra GS 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I bought the Kia used at 18,000 miles, and then drove it for almost 150,000 without a problem. Gas mileage was about 33 mpg highway, and it was rock solid. Sure, the sheet metal is so thin that you could dent the car just by breathing on it, and the rear defroster was useless, but the car was a real trooper. Hatchback was very useful, too, I could load all kinds of things in there. The only mistake I made was not changing the timing belt, and it broke at 145k miles, ruining the engine. At 145k miles, the CV joints needed replacing, and so did the struts, but it was a great car.
Favorite Features
Great gas mileage, very reliable, useful hatchback.
Suggested Improvements
Fix the rear defroster so that it actually works.
