2000 Kia Spectra Sedan GSX 4dr Sedan


Review

As soon as I drove it off the lot, my
troubles began. I have returned this
car 8 times for repair. Mainly because
of cheap materials. I still have to
take it back for 3 more repairs. Most
recently the dashboard came unglued,
sounds like there is a screw rattling
around in the steering wheel, and the
paint is peeling. My nightmare
continues. I only get 22 MPG. Do
yourself a favor and don't buy one.


Best Features

None - There is nothing I like about this car.


Worst Features

Better quality control and workmanship. The best thing they could do is just stop making Kia's.

Review

I had been looking at used '94-98 VW
Golfs for a Hatchback before I
realized Kia started making one in
2000. Lacking refinement compared to
a Honda or Toyota, but has an
excellent 4-Door Hatchback layout, and
for the price, it's good enough.


Best Features

Engine responsiveness, trunk room, fuel economy. Handling with tires one size larger than original more than good enough. Styling gets compliments for its BMW-like shape.


Worst Features

Better lower back support in seats, better open-door stays.

Review

This car had multiple problems right
after buying it brand new. I sent it
to the shop three times for exhaust
problems. It is cheaply made and the
interior is drying and cracking. All
the air conditioning vents broke and
fell out about a year ago.


Worst Features

Interior quality, and overall quality!

Review

I recently purchased a Kia Spectra 2000
yr. model, and so far I'm impressed
with the car for the price. Not too
many people could tell me about them,
but so far everything I've found on the
Internet is far from negative. I think
that Kia will continue to catch on in
the States. It's affordable and a
basic little car, but it's been great
for the gas mileage. I'm going to
college, and I drive back and forth.
It's perfect for what I needed.


Best Features

I like the styling and simplicity of the interior


Worst Features

They could offer a sun roof option
