Impressed by this little car!
By Joel Dziak on


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


I bought this car as a price point
issue. Little did I know what I was
actually getting! It had plenty of zip
under the hood and handled quite well!
I was impressed most however when I
recently had a very bad accident in my
car. I Had a car pull out in front of
me while I was traveling at 70 mph. I
broadsided the car and suffered no more
than a concussion and whiplash!. This
car held up great! the passenger
compartment was left fully intact.
Well done!

Best Features

The fully adjustable 8-way seat, 1.8 DOHC engine, variable power steering

Worst Features

need to stiffen up the suspension a bit - a little too soft on hard starts
