Cute little car a teenager

2009 Kia Rio Kristina S - Wichita, KS 06/05/2015

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 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.

Fun Sporty Ride

2007 Kia Rio Orange Car Driver - Louisville, KY 09/28/2010

After driving a 4-door Mazada Protege for years, the Kia Rio seems comfortable and familiar to me. It handles well and is a quiet ride. I like that I found one with a few customized features like tinted windows and custom interior. It's a small car, but still feels quite roomy. Although the manufacturer info says the car gets 38 mpg, I've found it's really more like 30 mpg in city driving - which I'm happy with. My only two gripes - I don't have cruise control which I find odd in a car with some customized features. Not sure if that's a standard Kia move. And the most annoying - the seatbelt bell!! It's not an electronic beep, but rather an actual tinny sounding bell that goes on far too long. Believe me I am never without my seatbeat. Put it on before you start it up because that bell sound gets burned into your brain. But, really, what a small issue. Otherwise, I'm liking my Kia!
