    2006 Kia Spectra - EX (A4)

    I love my Spectra. My previous car was dead and I needed something in a hurry and I was able to pick up this used 5 speed manual limited edition LX Spectra for pretty cheap with fairly low miles for the year it was. Being the limited edition it has a body kit on it, a duel exhaust, and the DOHC engine. Its a blast to drive, very quick off the line and no problem at squealing the tires if you chose. Apart from that it has been very reliable and comfortable for a smaller car. I love it.

    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 (A4)

    Pros: gas mileage

    Cons: small console

    Advice: If you plan to trade in 3 to 5 years,terrible trade in value

    I 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.
