Still running, still stunning!

This car was purchased new back in 2006 and it was a big deal for the family since it was the first new car we'd owned. We had all kinds of used cars, just due to the fact that we couldn't afford something new. I could've written about it back then and how awesome it was in its hey-day. It was shinny and new and smelled so great! Well it's been a long time now, and it wasn't always well taken care of. Last year I started taking more of an interest in fixing it up, it gave me a chance to figure things out and it helped me keep my mind off family issues at the time. Definitely had some problems with it when I took it over. Once I cleaned it up decently it started coming back together, but obviously age isn't something easy to undo. Other than some heavy dents and scratches and faded plastic and worn interior it looks like she'll make it with some tlc. Mechanically, it was sounding rough. I knew it was going to be a tall order. Lots of little touches hear and there, in total probably $800-$1000 worth of parts and mostly DIY labor. There's still much to be done, I figure some body work might pay off and hopefully she'll shine. I'd still say it's well-worth it and further justifies keeping it running.

Great experience! There not the type of people that rush you into looking at a car. Very patient with you and I love the fact you can drive the test car all by yourself so you get an overall self experience. Definitely reccomend coming here!

Overlooked and extremely reliable!

I was the 2nd owner. I bought it when it had 200k and it died when it had to 250k. I took great care of it and loved how reliable it truly was. I was hesitant at first since Kias had a bad rep in the 90s but boy was I wrong to assume. This car is just as reliable as the family camry or your auntie's toyota, trust me. My only gripe would be the engine performance which was lacking. Especially on the highways.

I sent off an email, asking about a specific vehicle that I believed would meet my needs. In speaking with the Internet salesman, I told him what I was looking to do with the vehicle . He was honest and forth coming with some details that made my decision not to purchase that vehicle from him. He could have done what many other salesmen do and make the car sound appealing so I would come in. The drive is about 3.5 hours 1 way for me. I will be buying a car from these guys one day! I truly appreciate their honesty even when it meant they're not selling a car to me that day. Thank you so much!

I have had my Spectra 5 for 11 years and 202,000 miles. It hasn't had any major issues and it gets great gas mileage. The main issues have been non-mechanical (ie interior door handle broke). It is an affordable, efficient, minimal frills car.

Good Economy Car

I owned this car for 6 years from 2006-2012. I bought it new from the dealer. It was a great, basic car. Gets you from point A to point B in a sporty-looking fashion. It is your stereotypical economy car, with a sporty look. When I sold it, it had 100k miles and I had no major mechanical issues.

enjoyable car
by Mollie from Cincinnati, OH

I bought my kia S5 with 75,000 miles on it, but it feels and drives great. It's a pretty sporty little car with great pick up and handling, and is really comfortable. It is absolutely impossible to drive in the snow, but I think that might have something to do with the tires that came on it. I mostly put highway miles on this and so far I have only been averaging about 26 mpg, which isn't nearly as good as what is reported. Sometimes the gas cover won't open if it is cold outside. I have an automatic, and if it's cold out, it doesn't like to kick up into 4th gear. Overall it is a great car. It is practical and fun to drive. I feel that I am really getting my moneys worth!

Auto House Tempe Review
This place exceeded all expectations

At no time did I ever feel like they wanted to take advantage of us. In fact, I always felt like they were trying to provide us with the best possible vehicle at the best possible price. When you first pull onto the lot, you think, "wow this place seems kinda low-rent". But after interacting with the team, you quickly learn they are really dedicated to your satisfaction. We came here looking for a low-priced car for our son. Our sales rep was very patient with us as we drove car after car. More importantly, he listened to us as we described what kind of driving he would be doing and he made recommendations that made sense for our needs. We ended up buying an Infinity QX4. Before they would allow us to buy it, they insisted on replacing the windshield and battery for us (at their cost). Our paid-for inspection found a couple other things we wanted fixed before taking delivery. They applied the money we paid for the inspection to those minor repairs. One issue was a burnt headlamp. But the problem was not just a burnt bulb (we paid for) it was a bigger issue (igniter, which the dealership paid for). Our son lives in Virgina. After taking possession, I drove the car 2200 miles and delivered the car to him. It drove like a champ. We encountered no issues with the drive. All in all it was an excellent purchase experience and we would definitely come back here for future used car needs. As a side note, they also buy/sell exotic vehicles. I was drooling over some of the sports cars they have ready to drive off the lot. Our sales rep was Ryan. Ask for him. He will take care of you.

Fun car and runs great..

I bought the car used in Aug. 2010. I now have 75000 miles on it. I do reg oil changes and so far very lucky that its as great as it is. :-) The mpg is AWSOME I get like 24 city and as good as 38 on highway. I was able to go from Texas to Tulsa 280 miles on just a little over half a tank. The ride can be a little harsh. The engine noise is less then my PT Crusier. I would buy another Kia.

I was just there for an oil change, but was treated like I was there for a new car! Everyone was so wonderful. They explained what service they provided, what I needed in the near future and even washed my car.

I got my Kia Spectra5 for a Birthday gift for myself. I was looking at Subaru WRX (Used) & other sporty hatchback cars. After days of test driving I went by the Local Kia Dealer (In Prescott,Az) I had no clue they had a sporty hatchback so I took the 5speed out for a spin, I was impressed right away, This was not the junk Kia I have heard about, I enjoyed the way the steering felt & the car was kinda quick. I have had my car since Aug. 2006 I have 55k miles on it and drive it like a race car. fun car to drive! you can find performance upgrades at a few different sites & forums both were very helpful in finding the info on the parts I was looking for on my Kia. I would tell anyone thinking about a Hatchback to give the Spectra5 a test drive you may like it as much as I have!
