2003 Kia Spectra GS 1.8L from North America
I'd buy another Kia before I'd buy another Ford
Dealer replaced Chassis Acceleration Sensor (free) at 17,500 miles.
I get about 35 miles to a gallon, because I keep it maintained (myself).
I've had to take it to the dealer once for a sensor, which was covered by the warranty, and didn't cost me a cent.
Had an independent mechanic replace the timing belt (preventative maintenance) at about 65,000 miles for around $300...second time it's been in the shop.
Replaced the factory tires at 58,000 miles.
I've owned it for +3 years, with about 75,000 miles, and I'd buy another in a heartbeat.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
