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


Problamtaic Car. I have had nothing
but problems with this car. Had all 4
door sensors replace, throttle plate
replaced, ORGR valve recall, seat belt
unlatches, transmission problems they
cant seam to fix, rear hatch seal wont
stay on, cheap interior materials,
already show wear, rear hatch never
opens with release. Overall needed a
inexpensive reliable car, and although
it has never left me stranded, will
NEVER buy a kia again, or from the
dealership (taylor kia) in toledo.

Best Features

Car is peppy, have needed to use it to its potential a few times on long drives. Have seen 37 MPG on long trips. 50/50 average 27, and mostly highway i see 33 AVG. best object of this car.

Worst Features

Fix the transmission, rear dor seal, improve the material quality for use.
