I've been driving the Spectra for a month or so now. It handles nicely and seems to get decent mileage (27 MPG in LA traffic). My only word of caution is about the drivers seat. I am 6'1" and have the seat moved back as far as possible. In other cars I've always had a couple more inches to move back. I didn't notice this until I'd been driving a while - not during the test drive. So if you are tall be aware of this. Other than that - nice car.
Such a good car. After driving much higher priced cars and much larger cars, I am in love with small economy cars! Does exactly what my Acura did for me but with a much lower payment, much cheaper to maintain, better on gas and a perfect fit for me and my family. My Wife has a mid-sized suv and we (family of 4) take my Spectra everywhere. Plenty of room for front seat passengers and the kids are very happy in the back. Mine is a 5-spd so I think it's much more fun to drive than an automatic and compared to the rest of cars I was looking at, I couldn't pass up the Spectra. If you don't need the status symbol of a much more expensive car, the Spectra is worth looking at.
I purchased my car on 2/18/2011 and so far, it has been running well and I've only had one issue, which was the battery going completely dead on me. I don't know much about cars, so I did not bother to check under the hood, so I ended up with a bad battery that hadn't been changed since 2007. So I spent $108 on a new battery because my extended warranty does not cover batteries. Not to mention I was 2 1/2 hours late for work! This is my first car, and even though I ran into the issue with my battery dying on me, I like my car and how it runs. I have no other complaints so far about it. It was in good condition to be a used car, it's pretty good on gas as long as you're not driving as much as I am during the week and in one day. I would recommend this car to someone else if you are really in need of a car like I was, or if you just want something that's good on gas and to get around in.
