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


I bought my Spectra 5 months ago. I
didn't expect much, considering the
price I paid for
it, but I am finding I really like it,
and would seriously consider buying
another Kia when the time comes. The
inside is very comfortable, with
thoughtfully arranged controls. My
only complaint so far, is the paint
job. My Kia seems to have a "bullseye"
on it, as it has been "dinged" three
major times in parking lots. Each
time, I notice that the paint is
flaking rather alarminly well beyond
where the actual damage is! Also, the
tires that come standard on it
(Hankook) are really a joke. I've
already replace them, and am much
happier with the overall handling.

Best Features

Affordability, warranty, handling, comfortable seats, fun to drive.

Worst Features

Better tires standard, lighted ignition, ABS standard.
