2005 Kia Spectra 5 2.0 from North America
None so far.
This car has poor fuel economy for its size. I owned another car (5 years old) with bigger engine and got better mileage!
The engine makes a lot of noise and don't go anywhere fast. All bark and no bite. Could be a safety concern during freeway merging. The car just doesn't have enough horsepower.
Nice interior fit and finish. Better than some of the luxury cars. However, the leather on steering wheel is too slippery.
You do get a lot of features for the money paid.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

My Spectra 5 has plenty of power and I never have problem merging onto a highway or over taking another vehicle.

I agree with the last comment, My Spectra 5 is an automatic and has plenty of power to merge. I have no problem staying up with traffic at 70 mph and not even know I am going that fast. This is a great car!
