Reliable commuter vehicle

I drive a minimum of 40 miles every day, back and forth from the east side of Indianapolis to the Pyramids (far northwest side of Indy) for work each day, so I needed a car that was good on gas and dependable. That is exactly what I have gotten with the Kia Rio. Mine is a very stripped down model, manual locks, windows, and transmission. The latter was something I was actively seeking. The car is zippy and turns on a dime, and I love having that little bit of "sports car" flavor from my commuter. I routinely have been getting a touch over 30 mpg from her over the last few months of ownership. My driving is primarily interstate, however, I also travel through rush hour, so it's a lot of stop and go. When it's smooth sailing, this number goes up. The car is small. There really isn't any reason to lie about that. I am a robust woman, 5'6", and I fit just fine... even in the back seat. However, my 6'5" boyfriend looks like he is getting in a clown car when he attempts to drive it, and his knees are up to his chin when he has had occasional need to ride in the back. I've been pleased with the cargo room though, especially given that the back seats lay flat to extend the truck space. Overall the car has proven itself well so far. It'll be interesting to see how it holds up over the years. But from the limited experience I have had thus far, I would recommend it to my friends and family.

2011 Kia Rio

This is the second Kia my wife and I own, the first a 2009 Rondo. I was in the market for a second vehicle and wanted a pickup truck but was turned off by the terrible gas mileage the pickups were getting. At three plus dollars a gallon it�s all about the gas mileage for me and the Kia Rio gets very good gas mileage. So far I have been averaging 27 miles per gallon city. I haven�t taken it on any long highway trips yet but expect it to get the posted mileage of 35 miles per gallon. It is small. I am 6 feet tall and 220 pounds and fit just right in the driver�s seat, however, I don�t think a person much bigger than me would be very comfortable though. It does not have the best acceleration but it isn�t the worst I have experienced. It has a 1.6 liter engine. I believe it�s the Toyota engine which is a great motor so I am confident in its quality. The Rio I bought has no bells and whistles; no power windows; no power mirrors; no power seats; no power locks, which suits me just fine. Too many extras mean too many possible problems down the road. The car is very sharp looking with a sleek looking grill. So far it handles well and it has the best turning radius of any car I have ever owned. The back seats lie down so I can haul longer items than the trunk would normally fit, which works fine for me. The CD player works fine with a decent sound system, I don�t need anything too loud. I don�t like the arm rest, it is attached to the driver�s seat making for a tight fit for me with it down so most of the time I place it in the up position and I don�t like the glove compartment latching mechanism, it is very cheaply made and I can see this eventually not keeping the compartment closed. All and all, I like the Rio and would recommend it to a friend. Like I said it is all about the gas mileage.
