Gas Pedal Gone with a Chance for Timing Belts

2006 Kia Spectra EX

My car, a Kia Spectra (2006), has lasted for a good long while. It has seen well over 100,000 miles of road travelled. The amazing things I have been able to see with the places I have driven with my car has been impressive, to say the least. In the 13 years that I have owned my car from new, I have gained the title for my car, and some minor and major parts of my car have been falling apart. While I know what some pieces are that need repairs, such as my gas pedal not being fully on. There is also the fact that it sounds like my timing belt is going. In the end! I will say that my car really is showing its age.

Kia Spectra The Everyday Machine

2006 Kia Spectra EX

This car has run beautifully. I've had minimal issues it's been reliable to drive me to school and work daily. It is equipped with CD player, car charger port, 5 seats, and great trunk space. It is a nice small but still comfortable car. I myself am 6'0' and sit in it well and drive comfortably. The car runs smooth and always feels at peak performance.

Is 13 years old and over 200 thousand miles in and still drives like new

2006 Kia Spectra EX

My car is a 2006 Kia Spectra, it's incredibly reliable. I live in the Midwest and we just had a flood in which I had no other choice but to drive through, my car never missed a beat. It's incredibly fuel efficient, and easy to maintain! Only complaint is it doesn't have cruise control, but for being 13 years old the car still runs like new!

Used and slightly broken.

2006 Kia Spectra EX

I purchased the vehicle used and I have been having issues with constantly having to fix parts on the car but they may be due to wear and tear from the previous owner more than the brand of car itself. When I'm not fixing it, the car fits my needs well and is very comfortable to drive.

A good, solid, no frills automobile for everyday use.

2006 Kia Spectra EX

Its very reliable and efficient on gas mileage. It has plenty of room for my needs both in the passenger section and the trunk. It has had some electronic problems with malfunctioning lights and window buttons. Overall a good car that I would recommend to anyone.

I love my Kia, wouldn't trade it for the world

2006 Kia Spectra EX

I love my car, it gets me to where I need to be. I couldn't have asked for a better first car. Great gas mileage, and very good heating and air. Seats are comfortable, and there is a lot of legroom. Great for road trips, or even just a ride around town
