a great little ride by Gayle from scranton on 02/01/2012. Trim: 2007 Kia Spectra5 SX, Owned 5 years.
Pros: It's a sharp looking car with plenty of room for both passengers and cargo. Easy to drive.
Overall review: I've owned this car for 5 years and never got tired of it. It's a great running car, never had any problems with it. It's too bad they stopped making this model. I would have definately recommended it to anyone looking for a well equipped hatchback. The warranty is fantastic too.

Real good value by Easterner1948 on 09/06/2013. Trim: 2007 Kia Spectra5 SX, Owned 6 years.
Pros: I have has this car since new. I have 148,000 klm( 80,000mi). There have been virtually no problems. I had all the belts replaced at 100,000k. + the rad coolant. I am debating wether to keep it for another 100,000. It has been that good of a car. the first set of brakes lasted for 60,000 mi. I still have the original back brakes at 80,000mi. I have replaced a gas tank strap in the 7 years.
Cons: No dislikes except the resale trade in value is absurd. $1,700 in Canada. I'll keep it , thank you!
Overall review: Great car. If I thought it would last another 15 years, I would save it for my G'Daughter

A sporty little car by Gayle on 12/21/2008. Trim: 2007 Kia Spectra5 SX, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I like it's appearance, comfort of front seats, warranty, troulbe free driving, ac, auto windows and door locks and mpg. I upgraded from a 2003 KIA Spectra to Spectra 5. I carry a lot in it because I can lay down my seats. It's easy to park and to turn.
Cons: increased wind noise from my Spectra. Also, back seats are uncomfortable for long distance ride due to the rod to lay seats down.
Overall review: I'm proud to drive up in my car. I drive it from Texas to Kansas in comfort. I would buy another KIA.

KIA...Kar Is Awesome! by Pat in the Poconos on 04/25/2008. Trim: 2007 Kia Spectra5 SX, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I've owned my Kia for 1 year. Love it, love it, love it! Handles great, plenty of cargo room. Great on gas. I take many 2+ hour trips and this car is a dream. Comfortable and very affordable. I bought when $1,000 rebate and 0% financing were offered...can't beat that! I'm 5' tall, my husband is 6' tall. Car is small enough for me to feel in control, but has plenty of room for hubby. Front and back passengers enjoy ample leg room.
Cons: Back seats are not the most comfortable and backseat safetybelts keep locking up when in use. Being claustophobic, that's not fun for me! But I rarely have backseat passsengers so this is a small problem. A 3 or 4-person family might have issues, though.
Overall review: A great little car. Not the least expensive but certainly is affordable. Would buy from Kia again based on my experiance with this car.

Pros: Like the style on this car, great handling and brakes, engine is very good, interior space is surpricing , i like the this car very much.
Cons: Tire press. thing is a pain, no turbo! , no AWD!
Overall review: In a year or 2 would like to see a AWD TURBO spectra model , the koreans have lots of aftermarket parts for this car, there is a lot of potential for this car.
