Is a 2003 Kia Spectra Better Than a Aston Martin?

If you had to pay a dealership money in order to get rid of a car, would you do so?

Doug DeMuro, a car reviewer on YouTube, asks that question when he reviews a 2003 Kia Spectra compared to his Aston Martin.

As DeMuro explains, according to an Edmunds report, his cameraman Filippo would have to pay a dealership $39 to get rid of the car. The Spectra is beat up with dents, scratches, and parts missing, but that, DeMuro demonstrates, is part of the charm with this vehicle. Unlike his own Aston Martin or any other luxury vehicle, the Spectra does not need to be looked after or taken great care of.

He demonstrates how the car can be hit with shopping carts or light poles, and yet it does not faze him. It is this lack of worry and peace of mind that make the Spectra, in DeMuro's words, "the best car I've ever reviewed."
