2002 Kia Spectra 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Bought this car after owning a 1988 Toyota Corrolla Wagon with 205,000 miles on it. This was a huge upgrade. We have 3 other kias, and we like them quite well. So this was a time to see if Kia's little cars were any good? Well, I'm happy! I've only had to get some belts replaced, and get new tires, other than that, its been a very reliable car. The people who owned it before me had to replace the transmission, and that was it. So I'm happy. There are just a couple of rattling noises, but nothing that the radio turned up really loud cant fix. Gas mileage is so so, should be better in my opinion, but it is far from being bad. I plan on getting 200,000 on this. It currently has 156,100 on it.

Best Features

Comfort of seats, visibility, smooth ride, and overall looks

Worst Features

Well, this is pointless because they discontinued the Spectra for the 2010 Kia Forte, which looks pretty cool too! LOL!
