Miss my Kia

2003 Kia Spectra Loved my Kia - California 11/21/2010

I had my 2003 Kia Spectra for a short time before I was in an accident with it and let me tell you, it crashed great! Nobody was hurt and it crunched the way it was supposed to. It was totalled, but it was a great car and I would definately buy another one. FYI, before it was crunched, MPG was 30-35mpg on the Highway.

Nice value

2007 Kia Spectra tracylr - San Francisco bay area 10/24/2008

This wasn't something that I had previously considered until I needed a car now. It looks nice and I am comfortable with having front and side airbags. The mileage is wonderful and the value for the money is good.

Great economic car with comfort

2007 Kia Spectra new to kias - Austin, Tx 03/10/2009

My Kia Spectra wasn't even on the list to test drive because I thought Kias were cheap cars and I was looking for a more stylish car. I just happened to pass by this blue one and the spoiler and tinted windows caught my eyes. I had been test driving for so long that I knew whether a car was going to work the second I sat in it. This theory definitely applied to this car. I was surprised to find the car had lot of get up an go, but breaks work just as well too for those unexpected moments on the road. On that note, great gas mileage too. I do a lot of highway and city driving mixed throughout the week and so far my max is 380 miles to a tank. That is amazing! The overall comfort is great. I only wish there was a different lever to adjust my driver seat. It sort of pumps you up and forward at the same time or down and away from the steering wheel. There is also a lot of storage space to eliminate car clutter. The car also has a nice appearance inside and out, which met my high standards for style (I like the spoiler on mine). The a/c and radio controls are also on the sporty side. I don't feel that I can speak for quality because I have only had the car for a few months. If it means anything, it still has that new car smell, the paint hasn't chipped off....and no repairs what so ever. Now, when I hear value I instantly think you have to lower your standards, but I really didn't. Because I bought used I wasn't really losing anything because someone else had already driven it off the lot for me and this vehicle had all the extras like auxiliary outputs and adapters to charge electronics, plus tinted windows and rear spoiler. Of course it had side curtain air bags throughout the car and the passenger front air bag turns off (and a light turns on telling you so) when there is not enough weight applied. A/c and defroster as well. I don't know how much of this is tailored to a vehicle, but those safety features are difficult to come by at an vehicle price. Hope this helps.
