Cheap used car, wouldn't buy new
By Kia Driver on
Vehicle
2003 Kia Spectra LS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
Review
I find this to be a decent used car for someone just learning to drive or looking for nothing more than point A to point B transportation. It's been pretty reliable although when things do break, they are expensive to repair. Many parts have to be ordered from Korea and it's hard to find a mechanic that will work on them. Very difficult to work on yourself as well. The "little things" like interior trim and such start falling apart around 50k miles though. By 87K the dash was warped, interior trim always falling off, drivers seat no longer went back, and power windows only worked sometimes. The drive train itself is fairly reliable though.
Favorite Features
Good stereo and comfortable seats for such a cheap car. Large trunk with fold down seats. Interior is larger than you would think judging by the exterior. Decent rear leg room.
Suggested Improvements
I'd like more power, a smoother transmission, and better build quality. But you just won't find that at this price.
