Pros: The gas usage and the mp3 input.
Cons: The size of the interiorI 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.
Zippy 5 speed!
Pros: 5 speed manual transmission
Cons: no cruise control, bought it usedI 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.
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.
Pros: comfort for such a small car and good on gas and good safety
Cons: noisy engine at times

Advice: If you plan to trade in 3 to 5 years,terrible trade in valueI like power in an auto and good gas mileage which is hard to find in the same auto but was pleasently surprised with the Kia Spectra,32mpg hwy,26 city.
