Love Love Love by Kathleen from upstate New York on 06/17/2011. Trim: 2009 Kia Spectra EX, Owned 2 years.
Pros: this is a great car. I LOVE the gas mileage- I get about 350 miles out of a tank. decent factory sound system, huge trunk, lots of elbow room, and I am 5'8" and have no problem fitting in the back seat. I've had it for 2 years and it's been very reliable.
Cons: on long car rides, the seat gets uncomfortable. remember to pad it. also, the lights are supposed to turn off automatically, and so there is no "you left your lights on" alarm- they don't always turn off, which I learned when it was -5 degrees and the battery was dead.
Overall review: I love this car. I have 3 friends that also have Spectras, and we all agree that it was a great deal. I feel very confident that I made a good choice, and I would do it again. I know Kia gets a bad rap. People chuckle when you say Kia, but I think they have really raised their standards in recent years. I drove a Nissan Sentra for 10 years before I bought this car, and I couldn't find another in my price range, and for less than $10,000, I got a spankin' new car that drives exactly the same as that one did. I would recommend this to anyone.
