2002 Kia Spectra LS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I purchased my Spectra in July of 2003. I have had so many things wrong with it since I got it. Right now my clear coat is coming off my car. They are not a good car in the winter because they are so lite. The total amount of time I have taken my car in to get fix in the short time that I have had this car is seven. They might have a good warrenty on it but they wouldn't need to if they made a good car. I know many other people who own a 2002 Spectra and one had to but a new motor in it at 44,000 miles and another one has to get a transmission in the car. No wonder why these cars are cheap.

Best Features

The back seats fold down so that you can add longer things in the trunk of your car.

Worst Features

The whole car needs to be improved. Like the paint job, back windshield, electrical and much more.
