Not bad for the money
By Bryan on


2008 Kia Spectra EX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I am a young driver(21) bought this when I was 19(actually still making payments) and this has been a great car. The 5 speed really lets you open up the engine and get the most out of it and I wouldn't have it any other way. Mine has developed a rather strange problem lately, the rear floorboards are getting soaked but there is no leake up top, so I am guessing water is coming in from the bottom? This will be my first experience with KIA customer service so I hope they treat me well and I get my car back soon. This seems like a rare problem so I won't blame the car just yet. Overall, great car for the money hands down.

Best Features

A/C(first car that has had A/C that worked:) Dependable, just fun to drive (5 speed) Comfortable, has been on many trips, will go on many more in it with no doubts.

Worst Features

Change the back end, the tail lights are huge! Make replacing things easier, like speakers(very complicated to change) Don't put cup holders directly behind the shifter, especially on the manual models.
