I truthfully don't have too many complains about this car. It's currently ten years old and still doesn't let me down. I absolutely love the gas mileage on this vehicle - since I travel a lot, that's something I look for in a car. The interior and exterior show pretty minimal wear and tear for how much use the car has gotten.
Story
I travel a lot in my car, so my best memories wouldn't be in my local area, but more so traveling to states away to visit friends/see what there is to see.
Pros
A+++ gas mileage. Very easy to upkeep.
Cons
It kind of makes a lot of noise when the air conditioning is running - I'm not sure if that's just my car, but it's been happening since I got the car in 2012. Also, the check engine & airbag lights come off and on periodically, and I've had them checked and it's just a sensor issue, apparently.

I love this Spectra. If I had known I would get such efficiency and reliability I would have parked my large SUV and bought the KIA compact a long time ago. The car is quick to get up and go and has a good stop without noticeable wear. The fuel efficiency, the smooth ride, and the responsive steering are awesome for the money. I dislike the seats - they are cheap but nothing a nice quality cover can't remedy. I love that I can get somewhere in a hurry without actually seeing the fuel gauge move. I am getting 33 mpg on hwy. The trunk is very spacious - fits camp chairs and a big cooler all at once. I also love the digital tire pressure warning I get on the dash as well as the trip odometer that allows me to keep track of my trips and the overall mileage. Couple other things that co... (more)
Story
I drove this car in 105 degree heat with the air blasted all the way and it didn't kill my wallet. and being able to zip in and get that great parking spot! Such a fun car.
Pros
Fuel efficiency and reliability. Strong, cool A/C being in Arizona. The space in the trunk and having the option to lay back seats down for (skis, fishing poles or small pieces of lumber). Being a female I am able to replace parts, such as headlight bulbs etc, with ease. There are a lot of little storage areas in this car that are great for short or long trips. And it only takes $20 to fill the gas tank. There is a generous amount of leg room, even for my six foot plus tall husband. The steering is very sooth and efficient. The stereo has 3 different channels AUX/FM/AM I can listen to m... (more)
Cons
We seem to go through a lot of tires, but that has to do with the amount of driving we do. The paint is low quality and road gravel scuffs and dings will show up on the body if not taking caution. The interior is very cheap but it is understandable since this car was made for efficiency and not necessarily comfort. If you get the timing belt replaced you will also have to replace the water pump - it is a given. The headlights could be bigger. They seem a bit small for the size of this car body. The manual transmission seems difficult for finding gears at times in comparison to other man... (more)

I got my car for $3,500 after difficulties with my first car, a 1990 Cutlass Ciera SL. The first day I had it, there were issues with the engine, something about a bad coil, but it was covered under the very limited used car warranty from the dealership. Overall, from the very first, there were no major issues AND the car has air conditioning, which is a huge improvement from my last vehicle. It is a quick, sturdy little car with good gas mileage and it seems well built for the cheaper model that it is. I have had the car for almost 4 years now and nothing else has gone wrong with it except one hiccup with a bad spark plug, but there isn't anything wrong with the car. I like how the car performs on long drives; it's comfortable and easy to drive. It's easy on gas and it's nice to look ... (more)
Story
The best memory I have of my car is that one time, when I was at a shopping center getting into my car after shopping, the person next to me was doing the same and I could hear their frustration and pain of experiencing the heat after having the car sit in the sun during their shopping. I opened my car and it was minimally hot because my car is white with a light interior, while theirs was bla... (more)
Pros
The top positives about this car are the great gas mileage, the air conditioning, the good brakes, and the relatively good overall look of the car. For a cheaper model car, it's pleasing to the eye and it's not obviously cheaper than, say, an Optima or something. My favorite feature of the vehicle is probably the air conditioning. I went so long without A/C in Florida that, with this car having air, it's a blessing. Also, I'm surprised that this car still has running A/C despite many other cars in the same price range and used do not. I hear the same from other Spectra owners in my family ... (more)
Cons
The only real negative about this car are the motor mounts. Again, I've talked to other Spectra owners with cars from the around the same year and Googled about vibrations from the motor mounts from other Spectras and the consensus is the same: the motor mounts just don't last. After replacing them, it's only a matter of time before the vibration at idle returns. Then, it's up to you if you want to spend the money to replace them again or just deal with it; I've chosen the latter.
