My Kia by An MSN Autos Consumer on 08/31/2006. Trim: 2006 Kia Spectra EX, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I like this vehicle for its quietness and its smooth rides. I also like it for the color and it's pretty much roomy and it's really good on the gas mileage.
Cons: There is not much you can really dislike about this car. Except that I don't like that the gas light just pop on and don't ring to let you know that your almost out of gas.
Overall review: This car is really a good and I would suggest that you buy it..

Watchout TOYOTA, HONDA, MAZDA, HERE COMES KIA!!!!!! by Ade15162003 on 03/06/2006. Trim: 2006 Kia Spectra SX, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Sporty styling, low price, long list of standard features, warranty, interior lay out.
Cons: Some interior rattles, other than that nothing LOVE THIS CAR
Overall review: KIA has come a very,very long way and the new second gen. SPECTRA reflects that. I drove many of the competition and WASNT impressed with any of them, CIVIC was underpowered and ugly to look at, mazda3 drove too sniff and a little pricey; COROLLA was underpowered and too mainstream they're everywhere. The SPECTRA SX has the right amount of sporty handling and still comfortable ride. Low price SPORTY styling long warranty and many features SOLD ME!!!!

A great car for the money by An MSN Autos Consumer on 11/14/2012. Trim: 2006 Kia Spectra EX, Owned 2 years.
Pros: As far as the drive train goes. This car is built well and very solid. Be aware that it was made in South Korea so it is all metric.
Cons: Clear coat coming off on plastic mirror housings. Electric window switches starting to short out.
Overall review: Solid Car. Very Safe, built well, no oil leaks, engine stays clean. Good fuel mileage.

My Little Speed Demon by Negs on 10/18/2012. Trim: 2006 Kia Spectra EX, Owned 1 year.
Pros: comfortable, no blind spots, speedy little car, great handling, spacious seating
Cons: sometimes has problems accelerating when above 50mph, due to it being a smaller engine.
Overall review: I love this car! I unfortunately got jipped into paying way too much for this car, and always bashed about hating it because of that, but when it comes down to it this is an amazing car. super reliable and lots of fun, regardless of the price. I know this car will go a long way and luckily due to an immediate problem when I bought it I got a brand new transmission!. 135k miles on it and its still got a lot of fight in it. handles great and I feel like I'm in a little sports car sometimes. I wouold definitely recomend this car to young drivers as it it very easy to drive and there are practicaly no blind spots.
