Review

I just purchased a 2007 Spectra with around 40k miles on it. Only problems so far are a blown speaker when I bought it (didn't realize it initially.) So far though the ride in the car has been great. I was coming from a 2000 Kia Sephia, and this is leaps and bounds better. Kia certainly has come a long way from when they started. My bf has an '06 Corolla, and the '07 Spectra is actually comparable which says a lot considering the prices between the 2 had a $3000 price difference on the used market at the least. The MP3 jack is a great addition and the interior is quite classy. Much better choice then a very old model Honda or Toyota.

Pleasantly Surprising Car!

Review

I got this car after my 2005 Honda Civic EX was (unfortunately) totaled. I bought it used with 35k miles and it now has 38k. Let me stress that I absolutely LOVED my Civic, so I wasn't exactly thrilled about getting a new car. But after 3000 miles, I've learned to love my Spectra almost as much as the Civic! It only has about 30 more horsepower than my Civic did, but it's very noticeable. The engine is extremely quiet upon acceleration, and I have to watch out or else I'll end up doing 80/90mph without even noticing. Fuel economy is great. I've gotten up to 430 miles on 12 gallons (close to 500 on a full 15 gal). The seats are very comfy (I drive long distances often). Great little car!

Surprisingly good car

Review

After hearing about safety issues with older Kias (side impact problems), I was a little wary of getting into one, but that has apparently been resolved with the new models. I have had my '07 for almost 2 years now, and it is one of the best, most dependable vehicles that I have ever driven. Smooth driver, but you have to watch your speed (my gf hit 93 MPH without realizing the first time she was on the HWay), I've personally gotten it up to 112 without struggling (I know, bad!). Fantastic fuel economy, good factory sound system with AUX input, intuitive cruse control paddle shifter, GREAT pickup and 0-60 acceleration. Solid feel to doors/trunk/hood.

Great Little Car

2007 Kia Spectra Sedan EX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Review

After driving LHS, Accords, Regal, Impala for years, I love this high quality minimalist car. The doors clunk nicely, all needed equipment is here (pw, heated p mirrors & r. defrost, remote lock, cruise, auto) and it drives like a dream. I love taking this car out for a cruise, because of its maneuverability, agility, solid brakes, easy steering, and overall high capability. Never would have considered a KIA, except we saw an ad for $12,000 cars and paid a little more for this. New. I always buy ABS. But these 4-W-discs are well dialed in, great feel, strong. So mine is non-ABS. This car reminds me of my 91 Camry and 93 & 94 Proteges: fine-handling, very capable small car.

Resale

Review

Bought new in 07, wanted to trade it in for a camry, well, disapointed to say the least, i still owe $12,xxx.xx and resale value is only $7,xxx.xx so I am kind of stuck with it. Has been a good car other than my key getting stuck in the ignition. Got fixed real fast. Also, th dealer will not cover you with a loaner unless you are getting the 30 and 60,000 mile check up. I wish I knew this before I bought.

Review

I test drove a Kia Spectra not really expecting much but after the test drive I was sold. It's quiet, roomy and great on gas. I'm a big guy and I was comfortable in the front seat. Plenty of leg room and my back doesn't hurt. I even fell a sleep in the back seat while my wife was driving and I was sitting with my daughter.

It's Almost Perfect

Review

I rented a 2007 Kia Spectra EX and a 2007 Ford Fusion for two weeks each before deciding to purchase a Kia. The Kia interior is ultra modern, while the Fusion is dated and cumbersome. As a musician, I was impressed by the Fusion's great sound system -- that's about all. I upgraded the sound system of my Kia and now my car is almost perfect. The car handles beautifully and the transmission is excellent. My Kia is fun to drive and I look forward to each trip, whether short or long.

A Great car for the price!

Review

I did a lot of comparing to other cars when I went into the world of 'compact' cars (I was seriously looking at cars like Corolla, Mazda 3, Focus, Civic, etc.). For the price of this car and what you get, I find that the Kia Spectra was the best choice for me. I was looking for an all around fuel effecient, comfortable, reliable 'get around town' type of a car. The cabin is very comfortable, the style is nice and the car performs great! It has all the power options, a CD player, and even great tires! I'm very happy with the Spectra. I'm 6' tall and the driving is comfortable and the console is very user friendly. If you're looking, test drive a Spectra!
