    2007 Kia Spectra

    Kia Fans

    Pros: The gas usage and the mp3 input.

    Cons: The size of the interior

    I found the kia spectra to be a very wise financialy sound purchase it is great on gas consumption, very durable and trustworthy. But not for drivers over 6'0 tall.

    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.

    2006 Kia Spectra - EX (M5)

    Pros: Everything, the stereo system is awesome

    Cons: None

    Advice: Always get the higher priced model for the additional features that are standard.

    I bought my Spectra new in 2006, have many miles on it. No trouble and the Billion Kia dealership in Sioux Falls is great and they go out of their way to satisfy the customer. You have to remember this is an economy car, not a fancy luxury car. I think too many people expect to buy a cadillac dirt cheap. I have driven many competitiors in the price range it competes with and hands down the best value with the warranty. I couldn't ask for a better car.
