So many miles but still looks and acts like it's brand new!

2009 Kia Spectra SX

I have had NO problems with this car! I really LOVE this car and I really wish they still made this car! I have had NO performance problems, it is the most reliable car ever! It is so comfortable and I love my moon roof! It has 140,000 miles on it and it still runs like it is brand new! The only thing that doesn't work on it anymore is my CD player. Other than that, everything works great! This car has get up and go if you need it to merge onto the interstate. Please make this car again so I can buy another one and trade this one in.

My vehicle is a great affordable option.

2009 Kia Spectra SX

My vehicle is a very small car that is very good when it comes to gas mileage. If you are mainly the only person who is going to be riding in the car, the amount of space in the car is great for one person, and even great if you have others riding. My only complaint regarding the car is that because it is very tiny and does not have good tires, it slides very easily in wet weather conditions. If it is raining out, I must press on the breaks early when approaching a stop because otherwise it will hydroplane terribly.

I love is the fact that you can pop the trunk with your car remote.

2009 Kia Spectra SX

I love my vehicle. It is a silver 2009 Kia spectra, used. I bought it for 4,500. It has an aux port. It is pretty good on gas. Only problem that I have had so far is with my tires. I believe that is due to the used car dealership. They put capes tires on it and sold it to us. Few months down the road the tires are starting to come apart. Everything else on the car is pretty good. I'm very comfortable in my car. Nice trunk space as well n drives smoothly. I recommend this car.

The most economical Kia spectra.

2009 Kia Spectra SX

My 2009 Kia spectra has been a very good car for me. It has run very well with minimal issues. The air conditioner cools the front and backseat quite well. The car gets really good gas mileage and does not use too much gas and this makes it quite economical to drive whether I am driving in the city or out on the highway!

Mileage IA great for a person having to travel a lot.

2009 Kia Spectra SX

Reliable dependable hasn't had a lot of upkeep to it. Easy to drive. I like the car I don't know what else to say concerning this car. The seats set good and there is adequate room in the front and back. The trunk size id good size for hauling things. It gets great gas mileage as I have a ways to travel for work.

The Kia spectra is a fun, compact yet roomy 4 door sedan for a small family.

2009 Kia Spectra SX

This vehicle is roomy, dependable, average for needs meet, looks nice on the inside and outside, easy to service, efficient on gas, good pick up for engine and easy to handle. The speaker system, paint flaking, and low clearance with rain run off, are the only problems. I enjoy owning this car. .

About mom's 2009 Kia Spectra.

2009 Kia Spectra SX

All I really have to say about my mom's Kia is that it is very reliable and gets us where we need to go. My mom gets the car serviced regularly and gets oil changed after 3000 miles along with getting the tires rotated and so forth. Basically it's a good car thus far.
