I pretty much covered all this in the last paragraph.

Great gas mileage, roomy trunk, but there is no AC. Good for long drives, body rusted out pretty bad. Plenty of room for four people. Decent stereo system. Overall it is a great little car. Was perfect for what we needed. Engine is good, great on gas. Just needed a little body work and the usual maintenance needed for the average car. I think anyone would be happy to have this car for their own.

My Kia spectra - a great driving car, . Have not driven 100, 000 miles yet.

My car is very reliable so far, for the past 14 years. I have changed the tires because of blowouts or punctures in my tires. I have done some work on my driver door at Kia dealership. I have not had any other major problems. I have about 86, 000+ miles on my car. . I believe it will take me through another 5 years or more. The Kia is a very reliable car.

Overall great run with my little spectra.

I really enjoy this car its very reliable only problems I've had is having to replace the battery other than that I have had no problems. It is been more than 5 years and still running very well. There is plenty of space in the car from seating as well as trunk space I wouldn't say I enjoy the features though but there is an aux input so it helps.
