7 years & 90k miles- still feels like new!

2006 Kia Spectra SX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


I drive about 12k miles/year with a good mix of city and highway.
I have had no maintenance issues with this car whatsoever.
I just do the regularly scheduled preventative maintenance and that's it.
I sometimes forget I bought this car way back in 2006.
It still feels brand-new after all this time.
American car companies could learn a thing or two about quality from Kia.
I will be a Kia customer for life, for sure.

Best Features

I really like how the center console with the radio, temp controls, etc. is designed. It's sleek stylish while the design in other cars looks cluttered and confusing. The interior design makes the Kia feel more expensive than it costs. I also like how I could get a sun roof for this car without having to also purchase a 6-CD changer. You would not believe how many car companies make you buy stupid add-ons just to get a sun roof!

Worst Features

Do away with the front spoiler- it scrapes against parking blocks. Make the brakes less spongey-feeling.
