Overall review: Last new car was 1989 Ford Probe, This car is very quiet and has great handeling and is extremely comfortable on long trips. We drove to Indiana, very enjoyable trip.

really is a good un-american car by kia owner on 01/14/2011. Trim: 2006 Kia Spectra SX, Owned 2 years.
Pros: This kia is very nice to look at very sporty an looks good at every angle. The inside is very strong the material and plastic is strong dosnt break easily unlike other cars i have owned very easy to clean on the inside. Easy to get out of to and the gas milage is great. An also drives amazingly well in weather conditions if only u take the low pros off
Cons: Plastic some cars are bad but this one is the worst. my fog light bumber is broken because of simply hitting rabbits in a 45 zone wow. Have had my driver side back door crushed in from a creeping metal bumper of a 70's jeep any faster an that door would have been toast. An performace for a 4 banger is awful my 2000 saturn had a smaller engine an had better performance
Overall review: Overall for what the car is its reall just for the city where you dont need the performance and worry of a rabbit and just need smarter drivers when backing up great first time car for now and in ten years. Back seat isnt big enough for two car seat either.

Pros: Affordable and reliable. Great gas mileage and very cute body/frame.

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!!!!
