Kia Spectra-Thumbs Up!
By KiaFan on
2008 Kia Spectra EX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
I drove my Kia Spectra EX Automatic over 3700 miles in Western Canada and USA after buying one month before. Excellent comfort, cruise control was flawless, held the road well, achieved average of 35 mpg (39 in one stretch), great brakes. Plenty adequate pickup on entering a freeway. Very quiet engine at highway speed of 70 or at idle (wondered if in was running while waiting at a stop sign). The finish and fit is excellent. The price was right - at least $3000 less than a Corolla or Civic or Jetta. I also checked it to its sister/brother the Hyundai Elantra... compares well, same engine, nicer interior. Stereo/CD radio very good. Great warranty.
Comfortable ride and agile handling, quiet engine and interior, good looks, 4-wheel disk brakes, great gas mileage, price, warranty, and dealer care.
Can't think of any right now. Kia/Hyundai make a great car!
