Good starter car !

2013 Kia Rio Ashley Daniels - Bolingbrook, IL 01/09/2017

Pros- Good car for anyone looking for a first car on a budget, Nice design interior, perfect for someone who is short to average height, $20 dollars for full gas tank most of the time, speakers sounds good, Car heats up in 15 mins or less and liked the no cup holder idea. Cons- LOTS of cargo noise, little car gets blinded by everyone's beaming lights, takes a minute to get into driving fast, Car slides bad during winter, and even on Eco gas can still get away from you.

Very affordable and durable car

2013 Kia Rio Lindsay F. - Houston, TX 02/13/2016

This car will save you $$$ on gas, and it does not require a lot of upkeep. Some people will complain about the lack of power, but I have no problem getting this little car up and going on the highway. Also, what do you expect? It's a little Kia. It does its job and it does it well! So far, I've had no issues with the vehicle and I'm hoping it stays that way.

The option I don't fully regret

2007 Kia Rio Zachary Schumann - Kansas City, MO 03/10/2017

I got this car at 80k miles so right off the bat I can't complain about a few things. I didn't get it new so I couldn't maintain it from the start so I don't know how it was handled before I owned it. It is a decent car for the price that will get you where you need to go. It is a bare bones model with basically no features. That being said, it has decent gas mileage being a light 4 cylinder. Repairs are super easy because the engine is very accessible. You MUST replace the timing belt on this car before you drive it away used or EVERY 60k miles or you'll have problems. Also, be gentle with her because these cars are not built tough at all. The engine will run reliably but the car is almost too underpowered. It's just value.
