I have greatly enjoyed driving my Kia Rio to this point. It is similar to my previous car, so there has been only minor adjustment to this particular car's quirks. I can highly recommend this brand and model after the past month or so of ownership.
2010 Kia Rio Awesome!

I love my new car. It is great on gas and reliable so far.
Love My Rio!
2008 Kia RioAntonio B. - Austin, Texas05/26/2009
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!
