2000 Kia Spectra GSX 4dr Sedan


Review

Fun to drive! You feel like a speed racer! Consider something new as it approaches the end of the warranty. Very spacious interior (long boards fit inside)! Great for traveling students. Needs more reliable parts inside and out; very flimsy. Dashboard comes unglued, interior trunk latch doesn't work well, sits rather low to the ground, bolts welding to axle in wheels, okay gas per mile, several blinds, paint is thin, handles great on curves...


Favorite Features

Spacious interior, plenty of hiding spaces, impressive exterior design, fun to drive fast in, ok sound system, ok comfort.


Suggested Improvements

Quality of its parts, higher off the ground, sit higher up inside the car, better gas per mile, more comfortable seats

Review

Buying this Kia was the worst mistake I ever made in buying a car. The problems started right from the beginning. The inside trunk release has never worked from the start. After several attempts it was never fixed. From there things were down hill; outside car parts like the weather seal around the back window melted and shrunk. The inside dashboard is coming unglued and the front of the dashboard is popping out. The seats are coming unsewn, the so called leather is not leather - it is wearing out. This list goes on and on.


Favorite Features

The car still runs.


Suggested Improvements

Start all over.

Review

After 4 years of owning my purple Kia, I still love it! The warranty can't be beat! It's cheap to maintain. Being a hatchback makes it roommy inside. Oh, and the trunk release works since they've gotten a fix for it! It's reliable, convenient, and safe. Even nice for a Mommy with 2 small boys!


Favorite Features

Exterior - looks - trunk room - Color


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage - better seat fabric
