Cons: wimpy horn
Advice: A great car for the money with a great warranty; you can't go wrong!We traded in our old volkswagon for the 2003 Kia Spectra and what a difference in ride and comfort! The Kia is so comfortable to drive because of all the extra features you get; air conditioning, tilt steering, cruise, nice stereo, etc, etc...and it all came without a large pricetag AND I'll get years of worry-free driving because of the bumper to bumper warranty.
Pros: roll up windows
Cons: broke off steering wheel
Advice: what?Wow. I traded in my 96 Lexus (sittin' on 20's) for an 03 Spectra, and I think it was just a great decision. Kia is basically kickin' out luxury rides at discount prices for you and I. Take advantage. I got a red one with 5 speed and floor mats. Man I floss daily in this thing, so peep it out. My co-workers at the bank can't hate on the Kia anymore, now they all try to park their HOndas near my ride, bump that.
