Really? You want the ORANGE one??

This was Mike’s reaction when, after we test drove the black Kia Spectra, I announced that I liked the orange one better. Tee hee Yup – we are the proud new owners of a 2008 Kia Spectra! And yup, it’s orange. Not the construction truck kind of orange, but like a burnt or coppery kind of orange. Pretty 😀

See? This is the stock photo from online:

After one hiccup (damn check engine light came on in the car on my way in to get the inspection sticker this morning!!), it’s all good. The computer tracked it to low voltage…so even though they charged it up before I drove it away, apparently since it sat for so long on the lot, it was still low.

I can’t believe we got a new one. We test drove a used one last weekend…what a joke. They were asking as much for the P.O.S. used car (and I mean P.O.S.) as a new Kia Rio costs. So Mike did some research, as Mike does – he IS a scientist after all, and found that the Rio would be perfect for us. Our requirements were to find a “gas sipper” to get me to and from work, and so that I could leave the minivan with Mike to get the kids to school on Mondays. I called the Kia dealer we bought the minivan from and asked them what they could do for us. Turns out that they were having this incredible deal on the Spectra ($2000 off) plus, they give a discount for repeat customers. NICE!

Loving the car!!
