Not all Kias are worth slamming. Hi Scotty, I know you don't seem to like kia but theres good ones out here. I've got a 2008 Spectra with 171,000mi and owned it since new (12mi). Avg 35mpg, runs like a top, has never left me stranded, ever. I would drive this car ANYWHERE, ANYTIME without hesitation. Have a reputable mechanic Ive taken it to since new. I don't go to "stealerships". Its so well taken care of my mechanic said he sees no problem in it lasting me possibly up to 300,000 miles or more. EVERYTHING works and has NEVER thrown me a "check engine" light or code. I think thats pretty good for what people call a "crappy, cheap" car. Rides great and yes, in the dash picture, the odometer is accurate and the gas tank still in Full after 107mi on the trip. Its able to get over 500mi to a tank on continuous highway driving (using the cruise). Switched ALL the lights, interior and exterior to LEDs. Looks nice and nicely bright and easier on the battery and alternator. A/C is cold as ever, heat is hot as a forest fire. Would love to see this car last to the 300k mark or much more!! And still idle, run, drive like it has those original 12 miles on it!!!😇🐺

yes,they are much better than they used to be. But, toyotas and hondas still are much higher quality on average
