Long Term Review
By Kentucky Ranger on
2006 Kia Spectra Spectra5 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
After driving this Car for 2.5 Years and 40k Mi I can say it was well worth the Money. Pros: Still very quiet and runs very smooth. No rattles or squeaks. Very roomy and comfortable on long trips. Flawless operation of the Drivetrain with no abnormal Fluid usage. Still very tight handling with no sign of any wear in Suspension or slop in the Steering linkage. Exhaust system still very quiet and resisting Rust. Cons: Not even close to the advertised Fuel economy. As of now 23/29 Cheap Carpet and Seat material already showing signs of wear. Windshield Weather Stripping had to be glued to keep from coming lose. Horn was not hooked up at Factory. Clock intermittently shuts off.
Good looks, lots of Leg room, great features for the price.
More attention to Q&A. Better Carpet and Seat Material. More honest posting of the actual EPA Millage.
