I just purchased a 2010 Rio. I needed basic transportaion. I'm please with the quality of this car. The ride on bumpy roads is a bit anoying but overall not bad. The gas mileage is better than expected 34 on the highway. I drive over 60 highway miles a day. This car can keep up with the larger cars with no problem. Best part of this car is the price. I coudn't get this kind of deal on any other new car with full power and the warranty is a plus.
Good starter car !
2013 Kia RioAshley Daniels - Bolingbrook, IL01/09/2017
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.
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.
