Works for me

2005 Kia Spectra EX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
I bought this 2005 Spectra EX new and now have 60,000 miles on it. I change the oil every 3-4K miles. My front tires wore out after about 25,000 because I never rotated them, so I put new ones on just the front. At 60,000 I should probably just change all 4 now. I haven't had so much as a head lamp go out on this car. Original battery and this car has never failed to start or run smoothly. Granted I maintain it well and keep it garaged, but still it has exceeded my expectation for an economical car. Comfort is not bad considering I over 6ft tall and the upholstery has no tears, cracks, or worn spots.
Dependability, Low initial cost, ease of maintenance. 6 air bags. Haven't used them and don't want to. Hope they work if I need them though.
Gas mileage at 30 mpg highway is a little disappointing for such a small car. The radio has really weak reception. They could have spent a few more dollars on a better audio system.
