I love this little commuter car, except I should have bought a 5 speed. The automatic is a bit of a slow take off and I am used to down shifting and getting out of the way. I have to plan my freeway entrance sometime short ramps make it a challenge to get up to speed to enter traffic.
I love its comfort and accessories, just made a 3000 mile road trip for business and it is definitely nice for the long road.
I will keep this car until its 50k mark and get another one. Only this time a 5 speed.
GREAT COMPACT CAR
2012 Kia Rio5Warren Carter - DAYTON, OH02/03/2017
I'VE OWNED MY KIA RIO FOR SEVERAL YEARS. STANDARD 5 SPEED SHIFT GETS BETTER GAS MILEAGE THAN THE AUTOMATIC. ON THE INTERSTATE HOLDING SPEED BETWEEN 65 - 70 MPH IT GETS THE BEST GAS MILEAGE, CRUISES SMOOTHER. THIS CAR IS NOT A FAST AND FURIOUS VEHICLE. CRUISING ON THE INTERSTATE AT 70 MPH WITH THE XM SATELLITE RADIO ON 60's ON 6. IT"S A GREAT HANDLING CAR..
