Bought the Rio primarily as a commuter car, with fuel economy in mind. Test drove similar compacts from Hyundai, GM, Honda, Nissan. Availability of basic models of the other cars was a factor - due to the popularity of these cars during the cash-for-clunkers incentive. The Rio handles freeway speeds without feeling like a compact. It has a solid feel. It's not quiet in the cab, but it's not loud or tinny either. Handling is good, acceleration fair. I'm considering upgrading from 14" to 15" wheels and tires for a bigger car feel. Easy to park with very good visibility and only a small blind spot. Mileage ranges from 29-34 with mostly highway driving. I won't keep it forever, but it suits my needs until I can afford an upgrade. I'll consider other Kias.
Cute little car a teenager
2009 Kia RioKristina S - Wichita, KS06/05/2015
Its a cute little car. I Have no problems mechanically with it. I purposefully bought the base model and manual thinking I would get the best gas mileage as possible. Going about 75 MPH your RPM's run extremely high. I was bummed i have A/C but that's my own fault. But with all of that and driving on the interstate ( I commute about 99 miles one way to work) I only get about 26 MPG. Plus side, it only costs about 25 to fill up. Definitely don't want to drive it in any kind of snow or sleet. Don't think it would hold up very well. Overall its a good car starter car.

The Rio that we bought was in excellent shape with very low miles(28,000). It's great on gas and rides pretty smooth. It doesn't have the greatest amount of power, but it's only a 4 cylinder so it's not really expected to.
