2003 Kia Rio Cinco 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
Overall the car has been reliable, requiring little maintenance. However many smaller items such as door handles, rear hatch handle, wiper arms, and headlight bulbs fail. Also horn no longer works, keyless entry no longer works, and power locks malfunction, indicating poor electrical system.
Reasonable handling, good fuel economy, reliable engine.
Improve body hardware, improve electrical system, needs one more gear.
