I've had my 07 Kia Rio 5 for three months now and I will add the same positive remarks as I read before buying this car. I'm on a tight budget, so price was a key factor, but so was performance, quality and style...the Rio 5 has it all! Lets face it, it's a small car with a small engine, but it will get you to top speeds without much effort. My commute is both hwy and city driving, I get about 28 miles to the Gallon. If you drive on bad roads, you will feel every bump, but otherwise it's pretty smooth. The inside has a nice sporty feel, I like having power windows & locks; a feature many economy cars don't have. The back is large enough to hold my bike, which is cool. The only down fall with the car is that it has a poor crash test rating, so my insurance went up a little. For the Rio itself, I give it two thumbs up!

The parts to this vehicle are only avaliable through KIA for the most part. They are very pricy. The worst thing is the timing belts go easily and the engine is not easy to replace...
Happy with my Rio

My 2007 Kia Rio has been driven about two thousand miles since it was purchased. It has performed flawlessly. Gas mileage approaches 35 MPG on the open road. 32 MPG around the suburban area where I live. It handles well in traffic. Parks easily and has good vision all around. I enjoy driving my Kia Rio. There has not been a single mechanical problem. Only a burned out back up light. The bulbs are easy to get to and change. I had to look to find the oil filter, but it is there at the rear of the engine's underside. It is not a muscle car and does not accelerate like a bolt of lightning. Smooth acceleration saves gas.
