2002 Kia Spectra GS 1.8 liter DOHC 4 cylinder. 16v from North America
Sporty, comfy, and affordable
I have yet to experience anything bad with my KIA. The only thing that I'm am dissatisfied with is the accessory unavailability. I've tried to find foglights for the GS (the GSX comes with these), and I have had no luck.
I have read some very bad reviews about KIA's in general, and I have to disagree. This is my first new car, and I am very pleased with my purchase.
The car has a lot of pep (get the manual transmission). It looks really sweet. It runs great all of the time.
The warranty is the best, and I have yet to use it after 9200 miles.
The anti-theft device can be a bit of a pain, but it's nice to know that there is something protecting your car. It's cheap, and it works.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
