2005 Kia Spectra Spectra5 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I think the car is too close to the ground. It is impossible to park head-in without scrapping the curb. Even going up slanted driveways causes problems. The gas mileage on mine is horrible. After nearly 5 years of driving in town and on the highway, I am very disappointed in the gas mileage. I get about 18mpg in town and 21 on the highway. So sad! I thought FWD meant front wheel drive. If I have front wheel drive, why do my rear tires spin when starting on a hill?

Favorite Features

O love the interior space, I love the get up and go it has.

Suggested Improvements

Raise the car 2" to get better clearance. Change block to cast aluminum to decrease overall weight. Then perhaps the advertised mpg would closer to the actual mpg.
