I have driven a full size truck for several years and when circumstances forced me to make a change I decided on a small economical car. My sister has driven a Kia for the last several years and when I got an opportunity to purchase a Kia I jumped at the chance. I love my Kia Spectra. For a small car it has plenty of room for my grandchildren's carseats and adult passengers. Fantastic leg and headroom, handles perfectly on the road and the gas mileage is super! I would recommend a Kia to anyone looking for a new vehicle. Thanks to my sister I now have a new love.

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.

I love my Kia Spectra 2008!
Great gas mileage and dependability.
I have 2 large dogs, over 100 pounds each. They easily fit in my backseat-together!
