    A very poor car in terms of quality. Absolutely no resale value. Production of the car has been stopped. I would advise you not to buy it, but its your choice.

    Thanks for the advice. The thing is i'm on a limited budget and this is the only car of which i can get a recent model. A comparative Hnda Civic or Toyota costs way too much. Production has stopped but so has production of 95 Civic or the 93 corolla. I know its a pathetic excuse to buy the car but i have very few options. If i get a good car maybe it will last 5-7 years without a major problem.

    Go for it, Mehran. Agreed that the resale value of the car is low, but keep in mind that you will also benefit from this, because you'll buy from someone who would be selling cheap because of the low resale value. There's no other car with these features that you can get in this price.

    Yes thats exactly what i have in mind. Plus i expect major parts of the car will be available after 5-7 years by that time i probably will get rid of it any way. I've read reviews of this car(also known as the Kia Shuma)and majority of them rate it good. Of course there are a few exceptions. So lets see if i can get alow mileage car within my range. Thanks for the support Shuey bhai.

    I haven't had the pleasure of driving the Spectra myself but from what I have heard, it is excellent when it comes to performce like acceleration and top speed etc. Plus, it has all the luxury features of Civic & Corolla and comes at the price of a City & Baleno.

    The down side is mileage. From what I hear, the mileage it downright rotten. Further, pasrts availability is also a problem. You will only be able to get parts from the dealers themselves, not from the common market.

    An honest opinion, Spectra has every thing you need in a luxury car, value for money (if you get the deal right) the negative points include (a) Gas Guzzler (b) low resale (c) parts are rare and expensive !!! The shape is awesome !
    Matchles G3L 1941, Triumph TRW 1951, Matchless G3LS 1952, Triumph T 100S 1968, Matchless G2 1958, BSA B-31 1952.......... I am insane!
