oic..thanks for your comment. but the maintanance is high or not for
korea car? I'm not worry on the resale value since now i'm going to
bought at RM30,000 for 2003 car is considered better than first hand
korea car right?

RM30,000 for a 5 years old car is actually a good buy. the car will
hardly depreciate after this.

maintenance is not high for spectra. just engine oil change every
10,000km (surely with fully synthetic oil).

air filter every 20,000km, spark plug every 30,000km and major service
every 40,000km.

but one VERY important thing not to overlook is timing belt change. Kia
Motors Corp has strongly recommend service change interval at every
60,000km for Malaysia kind of weather and traffic jams.

auto transmission is highly reliable, unless not maintained by previous
owner.

Now all korean car 3-5 years are half price or depreciated like 70% (my
friend beli 1 four years old elantra 1.8 at 30k), my current ride is a 5
yrs old spectra, everyday 40 km to/fro office, the plastics may
deteriorate a bit but as long as you follow service schedule every 10k,
zero downtime. Quite a reliable and robust car. My next car will buy
cash!

kia spectra is the best car. x ada masalah. penyelenggaraan murah
berbanding toyota dan proton.
suspension superb.
fc semua kereta sama. u tak boleh bandingkan spectra dengan kancil.
kena belajar cara tekan minyak. baru jimat. saya guna rm30=300km!!!
