Point A to Point B

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


From the outside you think wow, what a
sporty ride? NOT The 125hp 5speed
manual is very disappointing. I have
drove automatics with smaller engines
that are peppier. Going up a hill with
the A/C on..forget about it. I realized
I wasn't getting a "sports" car but
come on Kia the gas mileage isn't
terrific and the car weighs a little
more than a cow here in IA and this is
the best you can do? The interior is
decent and clean. If you are over 6 ft
be warned. After 40k miles no major
happenings.Great car for a college
student who just needs A to B trans.
That is about all you should expect
because that is all you'll get.

Best Features

Exterior looks Leather wrapped steering wheel?? (polishing a turd is still a turd) Reliable transportation

Worst Features

Weak weak engine Small interior High RPMs at highway speeds Interior "buzz" on the highway Driving in snow? Better off walking
