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


2002 Kia Spectra LS is basic transport. I bought car brand new and I am original owner. Some of warranty repairs in chronological order: All items listed are true replacements under warranty - exhaust purge cannister, front brakes, front exhaust, heater switch,drivers back board seat,engine gaskets, front struts replaced, rear main seal leaking, sun visor, arm rest. After timing belt replacement the check engine light came on for eight times, the timing belt was changed incorrectly by dealer. Summary : A big headache to own.

Best Features

Suspension, steering, air conditioner, heater.

Worst Features

Definitely needs quality control on assembly line. Needs more low end torque for zero to forty miles an hour.
