She's snarky, but a good friend.
By Aenari on


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


It was my first car, and I was pleased. It worked, and the warranty is phenomenal. My power window motors were constantly iffy, but that's small potatoes - it drove, and drove consistently. The dash and what have you are fairly boring. The CD player developed an interesting quirk where it sucks the cd back in when you eject it before you can grab it. That was fun. But it was a dang good value with cruise control to boot. Keep up on the maintenance and she'll behave. She is snarky; it never let me get too attached emotionally. But it was there for me.

Best Features

Good amount of room. Gas mileage never bothered me. Stereo is quite satisfying.

Worst Features

The dashboard needed some pizazz! The paint started to come off of the CD controls.
