Love My Rio!

It's been a month. My Rio looks fantastic with the black body moldings. People who got stuck with one of the older-model all-white cars look at my car with envy ("Oh, they added the black...") The beige interior took some getting used to. It was too bright at first, since I'd been driving a dark car for several years. Now, I like it. The car seems roomy, airy, bright. The instrument panel looks dinky. Let's be honest, my 2001 Hyundai had a more high-tech looking instrument panel and there was nothing high-tech about my Hyundai! Still, it's growing on me. It's retro. The brakes and steering are reliable and responsive. I rented a Kia Rio while my Hyundai's brakes were getting fixed. The Kia rental reminded me of how solidly brakes should perform. That's my Rio! The turning radius is tight, so I can get in and out of some narrow situations. I upgraded the tires to Pirelli P5s and this baby hugs the road and handles like a dream. I also upgraded the sound system. Now, Austin traffic doesn't seem so bad. I just love driving my Rio! I try to be green and conserve gas, but I have to admit that the first week I got it, I would go on midnight drives just because I loved being in my Rio. I was thinking of going for a drive last night. That should say it all!

What I Needed

When my car died, I needed to find a replacement vehicle, quickly. This low mile Kia Rio SX was a perfect balance of value and features. I had to sacrifice leather, sunroof, HP, but was able to get power accessories, CD, 4 doors, and alloy wheels for under $215/mo. I'm happy with my purchase, and even more happy that I have a factory warranty! PS - When it's time to replace your timing belt on a Jetta, you should!

2008 Kia Rio Lx

Consistent 30mpg (with Max AC on usually in city traffic), comfortable seats, tons of trunk space, acceleration is a bit slow but my previous car was a Hyundai Tiburon. Excellent safety ratings. I recommend improving the mileage even more by getting "green" tires like the Michelin HydroEdge with Green X. It's a low resistance tire which I think could probably improve mpg a few more as well.
