Review

this car had little seats and was not the car i thought it was when i bought it. I thought it was a pretty color and thats about all. It was, in all, reliable, but it did not give me the feeling of safty when i drove it on the high way.

Review

Very fun, economical, practical and sporty car. I really am pleased with the car. The hatchback GSX allows me to throw whatever I need in there. I've had a few electrical problems with the cruise control and dash lights but both are fixed now. The car warms up quick in the winter, very economical to drive (40+mpg) driving it nice. No transimisson problems with the 5 speed!

Review

I just bought a new Spectra. First new car I have ever owned (was about time). So far, so good. Gas mileage has been consistently around 30mpg. Shifts very smoothly. I have now put nearly 3000 miles on it. Looks like it'll need a set of studded tires for the winter. Enough room for my kids in the back - better than a Rio.

Not worth the Money, service is null and even the service provider told me that we live and learn when I told him the car I had purchased.

Just a piece of my mind

2004 Kia Spectra Hatchback GSX 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

While the car is beautiful in the outside and all I had to rate it low on performance because since I got the car, which by the way I bought it with only 21 miles on it, it has been giving me problems with the driver's side door window. The car has power everything and so the window opens by itself and many times while driving in the Highway, which scares me half to death.

Review

I am impressed with this one! Gotta hand it to the Euro's; they can make a car; Kia's selling like hotcakes over there. My vehicle warm's up fast in the winter, idles quietly, handles well on the road, has good radio,sound quality! If the Koreans are offering a warranty like this, it tells me that they have engineered one heck, "see, we told ya' so!" of a car. Easy on the wallet! Maybe it's a "Honda clone."

Poor quality and brake system

Review

This vehicle which I own 2001. The rubber seals around all doors was falling off when the car was 3 months old. The plastic inside door handles (can you believe plastic) have broken and I have replaced brakes around 10X and still are not good. I will never by this car again. Good price but I have put almost as much $$$$ in this car as what I paid for.
