2003 Kia Spectra GSX 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

Review

My wife and I were second-time new car buyers and were looking to step up from the 2002 Spectra we had bought the year previous. We got the GSX, which has the power windows and door locks, power mirrors and tach. The CD player was nice, but we have our own in it. The stock speakers have been just fine, and it rides quite well for a vehicle with such a short wheel base. The small engine is our main problem, as we live in a mountainous area and have to turn off the O/D and A/C to climb the hills. Overall, however, we've had NO trouble out of this car and have only had to take it in for normal upkeep.

Favorite Features

Feul Economy, reliability, looks good inside and out, roomy for its size, good sound.

Suggested Improvements

The 2005 Spectra has a little more power (137hp vs. 124hp) and that was really our only complaint. Keyless entry would have been nice as well, although it can be added as a dealer option.
