    the A/T will die if it overheats even once and buying the rebuild kit is like skinning yourself with a spoon. stick with the manual transmission

    yr my cux having spectra. his model is 2003. and its only 4000km driven. fully auto.. not even he took off the stickers from the car... well no doubt car is damn awesome. but i have listened tht, spectra suspension is a bit unreliable as compare to honda, toyota. cauz its korean and all. so no matter if there is a bit bump on road u have to slow down the car. not like toyota or honda tht u just avoided.. well u wont notice even in spectra. but its suspension will be affected. which honda, toyota doesnt.. well thts not a big issue. if suspensions need some work. altered its suspension and install honda civic 2005 prosmatec suspension. now body of this car is a bit also of low gage like now mehran and hiroof are having. so it gets alot of rusts on hubs, rear doors from rubber fittings. and tht rear mounted stop lamp. from dere spectra always gets rusted... if u keep it maintained this will not happen. like dont wash car daily. dont use boring water or hard water... wash ur car once in a month. and after washing stand it in bright sun so tht water which stands on small curves of lights and handles gets evaporated and dont get rusted...

    in the end. spectra is v.nice car. but fuel mileage is a bit poor because of dohc and 1500cc. and suspension is unreliable a bit and body gets rusts. if u keep it maintained u wont have any of dese problems... people say mehran is unreliable etc etc. but if u drive normally and behavely tht car is also one of its kind.... its not abt the car. its abt the maintainance and driver.

    i have droven it more than 2 thousand kms on long route and it has not given even a single problem alhamdoLILAH.it is a v nice car with chillllling ac xcellenet pick and road grip. as far as suspension is concerned there is no issue . mileage is 100 km in one tank ov 55 with in city and 140 km on highway and petrol is 10km/l. i drove it at 150 on motorway and it cud still even go up.in short its a very good car at a very cheap price if u want to buy it for urself with no intentions ov changing it soon than make it ur first priority and search for a clean ride.
