Kia Spectra: The New Yugo?
By FLEECIV on
2002 Kia Spectra 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
The Spectra brings the word cheap back
to the world of inexpensive cars. From
fit and finish issues to gas mileage
that rivals an SUV, the Spectra was
amazing in its capability to miss every
expectation we had for it. Those
expectations were not high, but we had
been given hope after our Focus and
Echo. The engine was loud and every
bump was felt through the cheap seats.
The car did start each time it was
asked, a point that typically goes
unnoticed in cars today. It is
difficult to say anything else that
could be considered positive.
