Let me start by saying I traded in my 04 cobra in on this little beaut! I love everything about it, especially the advanced one wheel drive, its beyond amazing. Performance wise, it blows away the cobra and does it while achieving increbible gas mileage ( i get a whopping 13 mpg ). I couldnt complain, in fact mine is so fast my friend traded in his dodge viper and got a rio5! If I could wish for one thing in the world: it would be a Rio5 of 5 STAR QUALITY! Paul Walker said my car should be the Fast in the Furious LOL!
Great car for what it is

This car doesn't go 0-60 in 3 seconds or tow anything. It's also not the most comfortable roadtrip car. It is, however, a very fun car to drive if you're just learning manual and need something to drive around town. No real gripes about the car at all.

It is a very simple car. I don't like that it does not have cruise control or power seats. It runs good, very quiet, pretty cute. Great gas mileage. Very clean.
