Congrats on your new 2004 1/2 Kia Spectra! Glad you snagged one. I'm thinking a lot about this car or a new-world-order Kia Sportage for 2005 for my next rig. My Sportage is running great so trading in is not in the current equation-I just love these Kia motorcars so much that I want to pull the trigger a tad bit early, know what I mean? Keep us informed with any problems you might have or any thing that particularly excites you about the car, OK? I sure love the way it looks, for sure. Absolutely great looking sedan from these South Korean automakers. Dig it!

In Columbus, GA the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer ran an article for the 2004.5 Spectra today. It was more of a glorified ad than a review, but they wrote a lot of nice things about it. The article said a new Spectra with things like auto, leather and sunroof was about $15,000. That sounds pretty good. Kia is also running several rebate programs now that look pretty enticing--among them are rebates for current and former Kia owners. I will be interested to see how it does.

When are you guys going to update the Kia Spectra info under New Cars to reflect the new car?

Ask that using the "Contact Us" tab that you'll find when you click on the Help link at the bottom (or the top) of the page.

I went into the section again; and, what I found was that while the picture has not been updated, the information has.

This discussion archived itself after an extended period of inactivity. I'm reopening it because I think some of our members would like to resume the conversation.

#125 of 464 Spectra In-cabin filter
Dec 10, 2004 (12:39 pm)
I recently bought a new style Spectra and while looking in the owners manual saw that it had an in-cabin filter housed behind the glove compartment. Wanting to see how hard this would be to change I undid the glove compartment to get to where the filter is suppose to be pull out the tray the filter is suppose to sit in and find the tray to be empty. I was if anyone would know if there is suppose to be a filter element in there from the factory or am I suppose to go by one on my own. I think it is rather strange to put this item in a car and not put the filter in it. The dealer is unsure if it is suppose to be there or not and the filters from KIA cost over $40 and I don't really want to pay for something that I think should have been installed already. Thanks for any help one this.

Most likely the filter is not supposed to be there. That's the way it is on the U.S.-market Elantra, the Spectra's cousin, too. If you kept your car's window sticker, take a look at it and see if it mentions "air filtration"--I'd think it would if it were included.
