My husband and I are so pleased with our Kia Spectra. We had been looking at Chevys until we saw the Kia on the lot and after test driving it, we felll in love with it.
It's a beautiful car; it's great on gas, and very comfy and roomy.

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!

Plenty of room in my 4-door for 6'4" me and my 3 long-legged teenagers. Roomy trunk, too.
Power windows/locks, AC, CD w/aux plug-in, split 60/40 rear seats, cruise, variable intermittent wipers...so no skimping on "creature comforts".
27-29 mpg city/hwy driving; 39 mpg (no typo, that's 39) straight highway. (Say it with me..."cha-ching")
5 year/60k mile warranty from Kia. Better than typical 3 year/36k mile warranties from most others.
No keyless entry on mine - only one keyhole on the driver's side for opening all doors. Awkward, but I'll get used to it.
Overall, great car for the money.
