3 brake jobs, 3 batteries, 2 timing belts. Only mechanical failure is an alternator at 222k. Only current issues are cranky AC/heater fan (needs to be spanked to get going) and chattering rear strut.
Driven 300-600 miles per day for work.

Yep... The Spectra (2004.5~2009) is a very well built car... KIA wanted to make a statement that they could build a car for the long run... The heater/AC blower is pretty cheap on Ebay and only requires 3 screws to remove... We have 5 Spectras in our family, a 2014 Optima, 2X 2008 Hyundai Accents, 2008 Hyundai Sonata "limited", and a 2009 Hyundai Tiburon... They make great drive trains (KIA/Hyundai)... ALL of them were salvage/totaled cars I rebuilt...
