2006 Kia Spectra EX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


I bought my spectra used with about 20,000 miles on it, so this reduced my warranty to 60,000. as soon as I hit about 70,000 it started to happen. My airbag light came on, check engine light, catalytic converter went out, and that is 800 dollars before installation, knocking on the front end, the motor has a bad knock, alternator, and a rear brake light that goes out once a week, and the cam shaft sensor, and crank sensor. This was the worst mistake of my life. First I would say do not buy a kia, and if you do, get rid of it before the warranty runs out. They sell it to you cheap and then stick it to you when it breaks down, what ever you get fixed will cost about a quarter of the car cost.

Best Features

It does get good gas milage, and the tires dont cost that much to replace

Worst Features

I suggest they start over and put some good emmisions, and use another engine builder, and give some variation of enterior colors, and release manuals for us do it yourself people
