    2006 Kia Spectra

    Zippy 5 speed!

    Pros: 5 speed manual transmission

    Cons: no cruise control, bought it used

    I am amazed at how much the quality of Kia products has improved since Hyundai took them over in 2002. I had a Toyota Corolla previous to this car, and it is just as nice. I have the 4 door sedan with the 5 speed manual transmission, and it is a blast to drive! It is peppy, zippy, gets great gas mileage and has been very reliable.

    2003 Kia Spectra

    Pros: Great gas mileage!

    Cons: I bought it used without an air conditioner. It doesn't bother me but 'some people....!!!!'

    This car has been a real trooper and I have put it through some trials. It has been there for me and we have taken some great road trips together. I'm just getting antsy for something newer.

    2010 Kia Soul

    SOUL without a heart

    Pros: sirius xm radio

    Cons: gas performance

    Save your money. This rice burner Gas milage gets lousy 20mpg. Auto tranny at 6500 miles is slipping, Brought car into hands free car wash, only to have body side moldings knocked off from wash water. Car rides like a truck - hitting the smallest of road ruts or potholes and my teeth clash and chatter together, as the entire cabin reverberates.inside. Engine runs rough on 87 octane, upon accelerating is not smooth, you feel excessive vibrations. Weight distribution not good, front wheel drive wheels spin out excessively
