Don't buy one.

2007 Kia Spectra I traded it - Oklahoma 05/14/2009

The Kia Spectra is a trap. Make sure you have an extended warranty because you will need it. They run fine until about 40K and then...they fall apart. Longevity is not one of the options. My Kia had these problems, which cost me time going back and forth to service it. None of the problems were actually ever fixed. I just traded it to get rid of it once and for all. Gas gauge did not read properly (had 300 miles on a trip and the gauge said full), locks did not function properly (locked out), very loud wind noise from both doors, cutting out on the highway and during idle, random idle at 2000 RPM when in park. So, do yourself a favor. Buy something else.

Wiring issue

2007 Kia Spectra Valgal - Tampa, Fl 09/23/2009

The car itself is fine, but the remote entry has not worked right since the day I bought it. The back door locks keep opening and shutting repeatedly, as if the back door locks have a mind of their own. We simply don't use the back doors at all, as it is too difficult to get in and out based on the fact that the locks go biserk each time you try to use them. The tire pressure monitoring system light is on as a warning light about 75% of the time too. It's a quirky little car with a wiring problem that has become a headache.

Luv My Car

2007 Kia Spectra Mimi2007 - Wesson, MS 03/22/2012

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.
