2007 Kia Spectra Spectra5 SX 4dr Wagon (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
K so I bought this new.. Wanted a hatchback because of the fact the rear seats fold completely flat.. Wanted room without sacrificing gas mileage and getting a suv. Exterior is soft tho.. As all vehicles are nowdays. All dings and bumps show up, and the plastic front bumper not so great with 6 or more inches of snow on the ground.. In effect it became a plow during the winter, but with studs got around great anyway. Interior roomy. Wife and 3 kids and me fit great. Car headliner easily stainable oddly enough not sure what happened there. Car has been across country from Washington to Texas and back with no real issues.
The killer aftermarket stereo I put in this thing.. 2 amps and the electrical system holds up with no problem lights don't dim at all and I'm pushing over 900 Watts continuous! Also zippy around town. Gonna end up driving it til it dies!
Car had problems locking right away after you unlock with keyfob took 3 times to fix, skin of car could use thicker paint.. Overall I abuse the heck out of this lil bugger and it runs as strong as the day I bought it even though I only do oil changes like every 5000 miles (book says u can go 7500)
