I am currently driving my second Kia Spectra, and it is my favorite vehicle to drive. It runs smoothly, and both accelerates and brakes quickly. I have had absolutely no problems with any of the vehicle's functions, despite it being a 7-8 year old car. I get a solid 30 miles per gallon out of it, and typically only need to tank up once a month. The interior is the perfect size for me, with enough space for passengers when needed, and the trunk provides a decent amount of storage space. I particularly like the fact that the door over the gas cap cannot be opened except with a lever on the inside of the vehicle. I have had trouble in the past with siphoning and this has kept the problem at bay. This is not a feature unique to this vehicle, of course, but it is definitely a plus for me.... (more)
Pros
The gauges are simple and clear. Good gas mileage. The gas compartment can only be opened with a lever on the inside of the car, keeping it more secure. Comfortable during long drives.
Cons
The car lacks the latest technology, such as satellite radio and auxiliary jacks for MP3 players.

I find the Spectra very comfortable and easy to drive. It gets excellent gas mileage both city and freeway, and as a college student that was at the top of my priorities list. It's very easy to drive, is just small enough to park easily, and just big enough to haul around my younger sister and her friends.
Story
After my test drive I was talking with the dealer about a different car I was actually more interested in. On my way to leave I realized I'd left my purse in the Kia, which he jokingly said was a good sign. On my return trip, I drove both cars again, and decided the Kia really was the one for me- I guess the bag knows best!
Pros
My favorite features are definitely the wonderful gas mileage and ease of use. Everything's bright and clear and easy to find/read, which is great for me as I'm a night student. Additionally I have to stress how impressed I am by the mileage- I don't drive far, but I do drive daily- I've only had to fill up twice in nearly 5 months!
Cons
My only real negatives are 1) things can get a bit loud when driving at higher speeds, and 2) I've had complaints about the seatbelts in the backseat not pulling out far enough (from skinny little 17 year olds, so it's an annoyance). Really, I have no qualms about the car.

It is family owned, which makes the staff very personable. They came highly recommended, and made it very easy to buy a car. I walked in with a specific budget, and they worked with me so that I walked out paying no more than what I had budgeted for!
