Not to Shabby
By Chuck on
2002 Kia Spectra GS 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car w/ 49000 and now have 100000. I have had two wrecks with it and it looks terrible from the outside but I dont care since im a poor college kid. I love the fact that it has no auto locks, auto transmission, or power windows bc ALL of those features eventually go out so that was a plus for me. Of course great on gas, little to no maintenance, and great leg room being that I am 6'5". I have slept in it on numerous occasions on vacations with the seats folded down and is doable. At 98,000 my fuel pump went out and it cost me about $100 for me to replace myself. Timing belt lasted until 98,000 until i replaced it myself-$40. Fuel pump got clogged very early-$15
Light weight, easy fixes (if you can fix cars), tight suspension, 5 speed, fold down seats, Hatchback, great interior seats, timing belt and all drivebelts lasted 98,000 in great condition until i replaced them myself. Great for college. Not a luxury car!!
