Great car for the $$$
By Jake Dailey on


2002 Kia Spectra 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I can't say anything bad about this
car. I've owned it for 9 months and
for basic reliable transportation, you
can't go wrong. I wouldn't buy it new,
since it depreciates so fast, but as a
used car, it's not bad! It's fun to
drive with the manual tranny, I took a
1st and a 2nd in the local autocrosses
with only upgraded 17" wheels and kuhmo
tires:) I also added a CD player.

Best Features

I enjoy how nimble it feels and I like the manual tranny.

Worst Features

A little more power would be nice.
