    Very Reliable — very reliable for long distance travel or across town. Great on gas mileage. AC broke a few years ago and cost of repair costs more than what i want to pay. Its a great starter car. Ive had two cars.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: gas mileage, appearance, comfort

    Cons: radio is dying, a/c not working, base amenities

    6000.00 — red, clean interior, small dents & scrapes[only on the corners], everything works, tires are ok, it was my moms car, has less than 50,000 mi. this care has been well taken care of, mom had a problem backing in and out of the car port. so the dents & scrapes are sentimentel.

    Pros: front wheel drive, good on gas, compact with lots of room

    Cons: no reason not to buy

    Kia Spectra - Not A Sally Spectra A Racer — This was a pretty good car for a cheap kia, came with side skirts, mags and a wing so that was pretty cool, did have to have exhaust checked a couple of times under warrenty though... got into an accident first week I had it.. girl drove in the drivers side just behind the front wheel. never the same after that.. was pretty good car though... hugh boot for a hatch back.. changed the crappy cd player for a alpine pretty much straight away though..

    Pros: a manual !!! how I miss driving a manual

    Cons: exhaust noisy.. leaks or something?? still not powerful enough for me.

    Great Car To Drive — To be a 4-cylinder 1.8L engine, the engine has some power. The car has 148,000 miles on it, and I've had the clutch reconstructed and the alternator replaced. The exterior panels look ugly, while the interior looks decent. Gas mileage is fantastic, 28 to 32 city/hwy. At one point, i got 34 mpg.

    Pros: Fun to drive, great fuel economy, low maintenance

    Cons: outer apperence is ugly,
