I bought a great car and love how it performs on the road. It looked good and looks even better now that I added window tints. Great on gas...takes me every two weeks to fill up compared to filling up my previous car every week. Love how it's saving me money!! Overall great car and I'm enjoying it everyday.

I love my new Kia Spectra! Parking is easy, and gets great gas mileage! I wish it had a little more "zip" but it still does great!! I love it!
Kia Spectra--A Wonderful Surprise

Don't buy by nameplate, buy for features, price and quality. The Spectra ES has great acceleration (139 HP and not much weight) and can get out from under you. Mine has sunroof/moonroof with roof headliner panel, cruise control, two aux plugs, CD player with great sound, fold down rear seats and a pass through from the trunk. Tire underinflation is displayed on the dash, so you don't have to check manually--that's a very important feature. The front seats are very comfortable and there's double storage space in the arm rest and good room in the glove box. The seats adjust for height. It can't have the ride and comfort of a big car but it does very well. New Kias have an extraordinary warranty, which is what first caught my attention about them. The Spectra is sporty and fun to drive; the suspension is Lotus-tuned. Don't just automatically go for a name you know or a brand you know; compare features and price. Kia won when I compared it to a Toyota, a Honda, a (2005) Taurus, a Focus, a Mazda and a Monte Carlo, all fairly new and at 15k or less.
