Hi Don......We bought a 2008 Kia Spectra 5 SX. Kia has really come on strong and the Spectra rates really high with the mags and the consumers as well. Basically new with 10,000 miles and a 100,000 warranty. Kia has upped the ante on warranty (5 year,60,000 general and 10 year 100,000 drivetrain) and the overall quality has jumped rapidly during the past 4 years. Ours looks just like this.

Its got their sport tuned suspension and the SX has loads of standard feature goodies (heated mirrors, low tire warning, power everything, CD with MP3, security system, blah, blah, blah). We got it for $11,500.

Karen drives a bit over 500 miles a week and we can't afford to have breakdowns.....literally. She no work, we got no money.   Our Diamante ('97) is still fine and very driveable for many more years unless you're beating it every week with 500+ miles.   The Astro is about packed in needs lots of $$$ and time to be anything but a local driver and the mileage is zilch! I didn't want to make car payments but I got worn out with the very real stress of waiting for Karen to call one night with bad news. So we're both pretty excited about it all......or at least as excited as I get anymore about anything!!!(;<))
