Pros

The 5 year warrenty

Cons

The seats are really not all that great.

35

Over All Not A Bad Car. — It has a good get up and go but the seats could be built to be more comfortable. The braking is good, acceleration is good. No repairs yet. Gas mileage is good. Mine has a sun roof. I like that.

I Have Not Had It Long, But I Like It So Far.. — I like the car so far, it is fun to drive and seems to have good gas mileage. Not so good on ice and snow, and doesn't have much pick up when you accelerate..I like the look, not too big or small and the color is nice. I am hoping it will not need many repairs, I would refer it to a friend.

Love My Spectra — A great car for the money. I have been driving her for awhile and she is a super car. She is very inexpensive to keep up and operates on very little fuel. This is a car I would recommend to any one .
