You are in the Kia Spectra/Spectra5
What is this discussion about?
Kia Spectra, Sedan
#2 of 464 2002 Kia Spectra sedan-who's bought one yet?

Howdy. I'm thinking of trading my '99 Kia Sephia in on either a 2002 Kia Rio Cinco, 2002 Kia Spectra hatchback or a 2002 Kia Spectra sedan. Has anyone bought a 2002 Kia Spectra sedan yet? What'd'ya think? Pretty cool?
#3 of 464 Um, iluvsephia?

Are these cars even released yet?
#4 of 464 They've been spotted in Texas

and Florida, but that may be rental car fleets only. I'm curious to get owner/driver feedback. My local dealer doesn't have them in yet(can you tell I'm a little bit anxious here....!!!!). They both look great in picture and I can't wait to test drive them.

the Kia getting a redesign this year is questionable.

Are you sure about this? Can you post a link to some information on the Spectra debuting as a sedan for MY 2002?
What I'm finding is indicating neither the current hatchback (Spectra) nor the sedan (Sephia) are due for a redesign until 2006. But perhaps you have different information than I have found so far.
Let us know.

Car and Driver has already stated that the Sephia sedan has freshened styling and is renamed Spectra for 02. I also spotted one in Tallahassee, Florida. It was a sedan and had Spectra written on the back. It had a totally new trunk and taillight design. Looks similar to the Rio from the back, but is larger and more square with less of a wraparound-the-side treatment for the taillights. It looked really attractive. The fact that the local dealer does not have any on their lots yet tells me this car must have been a rental as well.

I also saw TWO of them here in Washington state.

The Spectra is now a sedan so it looks like you get another board to watch over. Like you don't need any more of those, right?
Whatever you get out of this deal can't be enough. ; )
