It sounds like a sports car, I love my sunroof, big trunk space, and cup holders

2005 Kia Spectra Base

Seats are very comfortable and I'm very happy they are not leather due to the summer sun. Didn't get it in that much well condition from the last owners so needs a couple of fixing. Such as the a/c, new tires, new radiator, tire change, oil change, window switch change, windows tint, and new paint job. Love my sunroof opening and love my brightness control.

It's a small car but I love it

2005 Kia Spectra Base

I bought my car online through fb market. The car looked really nice in pictures but when I went to go but it there were a few dings in it. My car is real good on gas. Its small so the is really meant for one person or a small child. My car has good take off speed. My oil is leaking that's the only problem that I have. I would say my Car is reliable.

My cousin has put a few dents and bangs to it, but still looks good

2005 Kia Spectra Base

My Kia Spectra5 runs pretty smoothly. The biggest issue I have had is with the transmission. The airbag light stays on. Also, the check engine light comes back on even after fixing the issue at hand. The car shakes when the AC is turned on. It is kid friendly.
