2009 Kia Spectra EX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)


Car was bought used on lease return to dealer. Low mileage and "like new." Used primarily to commute to work and local/light out-of-town job travel. So far averages about 28 MPG. Vehicle handles well, very responsive, and perky. No problem merging into fast freway traffic or running 2-3 hours at turnpike speeds. Haven't tried it in snow but it is okay in torrential rains. Looked at same year Civics, Sentras, and Focuses (I like sub- compacts). Spectra offered best balance of price, features, and low mileage.

Best Features

Tight turning radius; easy to get in/out of, park; comfortable at highway speeds.

Worst Features

4-wheel disc brakes/anti-lock brakes; unexposed radion antenna (these are moot as model was discontinued).
