I'm guessing your engine failed due to not changing the timing belt at 60k like you were supposed to? Interference motors seize if the timing belt breaks,and that happens if you don't change it when recommended
NEVER to buy a RIO.
On December eight two thousand and three, I was driving a RIO, Just northeast of Midwest Wyoming, I had a head-on collision, the airbag and seatbelt did not function. I was immediately in a two and one half month coma, when I woke up I was told I HAD TWO BROKEN FEMURS, TWO SHATTERED KNEECAPS, A BROKEN FOOT AND A TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).
