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


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!


Favorite Features

Fuel Economy, large hatch, sporty and fun to drive!


Suggested Improvements

More comfortable seats, more head/leg room, little bigger engine maybe.

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.


Favorite Features

Fuel economy, smooth transmission.


Suggested Improvements

Stiffer suspension.
