Wish I could give it more stars
This car has never has had anything but oil changes, tires and batteries replaced. It gets near and occasionally over 30mpg highway miles. My 10-year-old car needed its first freon boost today. That is an excellent car if you ask me!

Pros
Inexpensive to buy
Inexpensive to keep

Cons
No backup camera
No bluetooth

A Good Dependable vehicle
Its served me well with very few repairs needed.Good mileage. Good maneuverability. With regular oil and filter changes and an annual inspection, maintenance costs have been minimal. I can haul 2 kayaks on it and with a 4X8 plywood sheet on the kayak racks, this little car can haul materials that barely fit in a van. Its driven by a resourceful SOB. I hope my comments are helpful to you.

Pros
Good fuel economy; not much has needed repair.
Change oil and filter regularly.

Cons
Has a small car ride

Dependable.
My 2009 KIA Spectra was purchased used with 24,000 miles on it. Its been very low cost for maintenance and drives well. A good all around performer.

Pros
26-28 mpg city/32 mpg highway.

Cons
Small car ride but that's an acceptable trade-off FOR ME.
