Or, for the same price, we can get a 1977 Dodge Challenger...

Kia Spectra Hatchback vs. Kia Rio Hatchback vs. Mazda3 Hatchback vs. Hyundai Accent Hatchback?

Keeping the conversation to these four models if possible, I'm looking for specific advice on why one of these would be a better or worse deal than the others.
They all seem to fit our basic requirements as a family of three that does about an even mix between city and highway driving. We're looking at used 2008/2009 models with 50,000-80,000 km on them.
The Kias we're seeing seem to be $500 to $1000 cheaper than the Mazdas and the Hyundais. Is this a good reason to go with a Kia, or is there a good reason to pay a bit more for a Mazda or Hyundai?
Perhaps the meta-question here is: Do you know a really good and comprehensive car review site that calls out common problems and complaints with different model and model-years? Every site I've tried either has content-free reviews ("It's sporty for its price!") or only covers a small range of models.
