"I bought this car brand new and because I don't drive it frequently with the low mileage of 38,00 miles I decided to keep it after it was paid off. In the 9 years I have owned it I have only had to have it repaired twice so I feel very fortunate, but that is because of the high standards Kia uses. I just put 4 new tires on it, but thinking of selling it and getting a newer model. Another Kia of course."

"I average 30 mpg on the hwy & 28 in town. This is an easy car to drive & park. It is small when My Grandkids come to stay with me, it can be hard to get everyone & their stuff in the car. It has run great with no problems. The doors sometimes lock themselves & the clear coat on the outside is peeling. The seats aren't very comfortable on long trips. Other than that it is a good little car."

"I love my Kia Spectra5. I have had this care for 11 years and it is so reliable. I have had jobs where they have required me to commute either 1-1.5 hours each way, 2-5 days per week. I even drove from Washington state to southern California in this car. I went in to buy a new Kia Sorento for my birthday and planned on trading my Spectra5 in but I couldn't do it. It was just such a reliable car that I chose to keep it. Yes I bought the Sorento too but I primarily drive my Spectra 5 as my commuter car. I would truly recommend this car to someone."

2007 Kia Spectra

"2007 vehicle purchased with 30,000 miles on it in 2008. Minor dents and dings and scratches on exterior. Maintenance has been ongoing for oil changes and tire rotation. 4 new Cooper tires purchased March, 2015. Gray interior in good condition, seat protectors have been used. Non-smoking car, no pets allowed. Has been reliable and dependable but am looking for my first really new car. Make me an offer. The CD player display has a small crack in it. Air conditioning and heat are excellent. Air bag sensor light is currently on and I have not had it checked."
