From Jaguar to Kia Spectra with NO Disappointments

...The excellent radio/CD player can be listened to at low levels. Noise fatigue on a long trip is minimal or non-existent.This KIA rides SMOOTHLY. It handles perfectly well for rational driving, and it handles bumps and road imperfections wonderfully. I love the way it rides, even after being used to my 4500 pound Jags.This KIA has plenty of power. It really takes off from a start, and it has plenty of passing power.I also have a Toyota Prius, which cost a little more than twice what I paid for my KIA, and I like the KIA better. The KIA is tighter, quieter, better riding, and has a better...

I love the 80's! Gotta love pop up headlights!

...Cons: Power windows are slow and car can sometimes have an idle issue once warmed up. Has trouble at idle when stationary for more than a few minutes. Could need a carb. overhaul/cleaning. Mine has a very slight oil leak but no big deal. Overall: My Accord was purchased with over 180,000 miles for $1200 yet everything works, including the cruise, all lights and power accessories! A/C compressor needs to be changed but overall, I could only pray that our Kia feels this solid in 20 years. If you have a chance to pick one of these up do so as you won't be disappointed. This is my first Honda and...

Piece of Junk!!

..."I would not wish this car on anyone. I brought the car home and within 3 days had it in the shop to fix paint chips that had already rusted under the window gasket.
I bought the car new in July 2007 and drove it for approx 4 mos before storing it for the winter.
As of today there is only 7400 miles on this car. I've had to have the back window replaced 2 times,
the body control module replaced, paint and body work where someone from the factory really was having a bad day,
the driver side mirror replaced and, now, tomorrow will be taking it in to the shop yet again...

Best value in a new car I've ever bought

..."Great styling, no luxury amenities, but everything the average driver needs without taking out a second mortgage for all the frills you'll never use.
Good handling, comfortable, easy to use controls. Excellent experience with KIA dealership.
Best warranty, so you don't have to buy an addl warranty thats adds more cost.
Good mileage. Smooth ride. Peppy sound when going all out on the gas, but no worse than most 4 cylinders.
If you want good looks, dependability, safety, and also keep more cash for other things in life, than you need to drive this car, you will be...

Just what I wanted

..."I was new to the car buying experience. I am happy with my Kia it performs well and is very economical."...

cool car

...Pros: Fuel milage is great,the styling is ok,it drives like a sports car Cons: theres not alot to say. Overall: would buy another Kia in a minute but do wish they still made spectras...

Great Car

...We've had it two years now and the only time something came up was we noticed right away the air conditioning wasnt working properly (it was august) We took it back in and had it looked at for free and got it fixed same day. No problems since. Great car especially for the money. We looked at Toyotas and Chevys offering the same darn car for $5000 more. The only thing I notice between our car and our friends cars is that the KIA tends to be a little bland on the inside but again with the money saved its so worth it. I'm glad we chose this car and we probably would get a KIA again."...

Engine stalls after 1 year of ownership

..."After owning the spectra for 1 year the car began to stall after coming from a complete stops.
KIA was quick to blame it on h20 in the tank. After consulting the gas station they submitted reports to prove that there was no h20 in their tanks.
As a result KIA says this is not covered under the warranty and I am out over $600 in repairs. Two days later my car is still stalling"...

Fun Drive

..."It is a fun car to drive. Quiet drive, very little highway noise. I like the sporty look. Decent mileage. It has been very reliable vehicle"...

driving with style

..."the new kia spectra is not only easy on the eyes, but it is also easy on the wallet. it was a bargain compared to most vehicle ive looked at. also it handle so nicel its like floating on aire."...
