2002 Kia Rio 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This is my second Kia Rio 4 door sedan. I buy the base model with no power steering, no air, no radio. I live in Minnesota and in the winter at 20-30 below zero it always starts right away and heats up in less then 2 miles of driving. Gas mileage is 33-35 city and 45-48 highway. This car uses the old Mazda 626 drivetrain and so it is a very dependable car. Several of my family members have also purchased either the Rio, or Sophia. Just a really dependable vehicle for the day to day drive, with a fully adjustable drivers seat (On the Rio only). Maintenance through the dealership is very reasonable compared to other cars.

Favorite Features

Fully adjustable seat with Lumbar adjustments. Simple controls. Easy shifting. Very comfortable seating and very rooming. I like that the back seats don't fold down. That way I can lock items more securely in the trunk.

Suggested Improvements

Cruise control for the long drives
