Guide: 5=Perfect; 3=Good; 1=Poor
Pros: What do you like about your 2007 Kia Spectra?
Very little, if anything. Sorry we bought it. RUN from this car.
Cons: How would you improve your 2007 Kia Spectra?
Quality in construction would be a good thing.
A little bit of insulation and thicker carpet in the floorboards might help with the horrible road roar.
But our KIA Spectra has too many other problems for these improvements to make any difference.
2007 Kia Spectra Review:
Got this car from KIA of Clarksville, IN, in a very high pressured sales situation. We were dumb and naive. This car is quickly becoming a mess. No power or pick up when trying to get onto the expressway. The dealer lied to us about it being a new car, driven only by a salesman. Afterward, we found out through Carfax that the car had been a rental car for a dealer up north. Wish we'd checked on it sooner. Our bank said we were overcharged, paid more for the car than it is worth and more than a regular bank would finance it for, due to the miles already on it. We went back to the dealer, but couldn't return it. We were only given one key to the car, they said it was lost, but they didn't give us another one. Just prayed we wouldn't lose the one key because they are expensive to have made. We have had problems with the battery and replaced it. Still, a few times the car has acted like the battery is dead or not connected, but it just as mysteriously works again, so we can't fix it. Headlights don't turn off sometimes and it often relocks itself. It also has a sloshing water noise that it makes in the dashboard that doesn't seem to affect anything and we could have the car "burped" by the dealer for about $45.00 every so often. In all my years of car ownership, I never heard of such a thing! The molding trim along each side of the front windshield keeps popping out and sticking up. Have glued and sealed it down. Recently, it has suddenly begun leaking water into the floorboard when it rains and we can't figure out where it is coming from. The car stinks like sour laundry and I can't stand to get in it. For THIS we got into a debt that we can't get out of because the car isn't worth what we owe. Sure learned our lesson. NEVER AGAIN!
