Good Car for the Price

Vehicle2004 Kia Spectra 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewI am surprised at some of the other reviews.
I bought this car used with 16,000 in early 2005.
At the time, I needed an inexpensive and reliable car to get me back and forth between work, home and school.
Six years later, I still own the car and I still love it.
The only major expense was a timing belt change at 102,000 miles.
Over the years I have had only one mysterious problem.
The transmission at times would stick in one gear.
Every time I have encountered this issue, I simply pulled over, put the car in park for a second, returned the car to drive and the problem ended.
I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone who needed reliability & affordability.
I own 2 Kias today!
Best FeaturesDecent gas mileage 25-30 gallons and the reliability - no major repairs until over 100,000 miles.
Worst FeaturesInvestigate the mysterious sticking transmission.
