Great driving and riding car!

Great driving vehicle. It is a comfortable riding car. I like the Kia brand. It's done well for its age. I bought it used. Only issues I've had are the AC compressor locked up and the linkage broke. Drives great in all weather, rain and snow. I would consider purchasing another Kia.

Interior is decent and no damages on vehicle

Vehicle has a blown head gasket currently otherwise runs pretty well. The water pump is also not working properly and belt is not installed properly either. There is also a coolant problem that is leaking from somewhere because vehicle tends to over heat within minutes

Kia not a limo but it works.

It gets good gas mileage. No major repairs, except for ignition assembly. Clutch was iffy now it is great with repair. Not super comfortable but no serious leg room issues in front seats. No so great in the back seats. Has emergency release in trunk. And handles good.

Kia spectra- easy to find repair parts.

The car I had wasn't maintained well. It was able to go places and that's what mattered. Kia spectra is a car that will take you where you need to go but it's not a cat that you can flex on. I got it in 2012 and it has lasted through all the journeys that I took.

Perfect little car with good gas mileage

My Kia is a small car but the inside is very spacious. It's a 2004 but it still runs like it's brand new. We haven't had any problems with it yet or hopefully not for a while. Everything still works, the power windows, radio, air conditioning etc. love the car

A whole big Spectra-um, all to yourself!

Really great for being a 15 year old car!! The only issue I've really had is that it just feels too light. However, I used to drive a big, heavy, Cadillac so I'm pretty sure that's why I think it's light! But overall I've found it to be a very smooth ride!

It�s still running after fifteen years

Internal plastic: dashboard and other parts just started melting in the Texas heat. Other plastic parts just broke. Air conditioning parts stopped functioning on a regular basis. It really has no features, but it IS still running after fifteen years.
