2001 Kia Spectra GSX 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this Spectra GSX in August of
2001, I received a strong rebate of
$1500.00 cash back, along with a strong
warranty, i.e., 100K or (10)yrs., this
really eased my apprehension of
purchasing a Korea Made Car. Now! The
performance suits my liking, 125HP is
sufficient for freeway driving. The 5sp
manual works well for controlling the
vehicle. The GSX Trim level gives an
abundance of goodies to enjoy while you
drive. Overall I have had very few
problems, some shifter Buzz while in
third gear, this was corrected with new
parts after two visits to the Kia
Dealer. After I drive another 50k in
this car I will know if I have received
my monies worth. I do enjoy this car.

Best Features

5-doors, the fast back look and good gas mileage. The front and rear stabilizers really do their job on the curves. The dash board is well thought out and good looking.

Worst Features

Larger console for storage along with a larger cupholder for oversize drink containers.
