Reliable Car. — This car is underestimated. It is reliable, efficient, and quick as well. I got a stick shift and I love driving this car. It has a sporty look as well and can fit four comfortably. Pieces are easy to find and not too expensive. Great car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Stick shift, Sporty, fuel efficient.

Cons: Nothing.

Decent Daily Transport — Good acceleration for a four cylinder, Strong braking, tight steering but feels like it would roll over before sliding on pavement, a lot of rattling inside the cabin, Looks like every other compact on the road, great gas mileage, expensive parts compared to the MSRP of the car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel Mileage

Cons: Tiny and cramped

Pretty Good — I love my car because it goes VROOM VROOM! but as far as the car itself, it has been beat up but for all its been through its been a prety good car and been in pretty good shape. it was cheap and it still pretty much runs like a dream!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: fast

Cons: small

2002 Kia Spectra — Peformance - sucks, but what do you expect from a little commuter car Build Quality - sucks even more... parts of the dash are warping due to sun/heat exposure Appearance - it's okay, but it's our commuter/beater Cost of Ownership - okay... picked her up for $3500 and it's now almost 150k mi and still has a lot of life left... gonna run this to the ground Fun Factor - ??? LOL!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: gas mileage

Cons: build quality

2002 Kia Spectra — this is one dependable car, from my perspective. It has a 4 cylinder engine and has good braking and handling . Although the car is lightweight, so if it is windy outside, then you will notice some moving around. The appearance is decent, both inside and out. Not much maintenance needed except the routine oil change. I have 70,000 miles on it and it is still running good. The seating is comfortable, but wished the steering column was adjustable.

Pros: no problems with engine (after  5 years), comfortable to ride in

Cons: lightweight, too close to dash board, and headlights are a bear to get at to change

Gas Saver, Nice Value Vehicle. — Its great on gas, and parts are cheap. I can do many repairs myself. For cheap, reliable, transportation nothing beats it. I'm glad I own it every time I go to the gas pump. The hatchback is great for moving stuff. It could never survive an accident, even at low speeds. Good value car.

Pros: Cheap to buy and maintain

Cons: Small, not much pickup.
