2004 Kia Rio Wagon Cinco 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I commute appox 120 (highway) miles each day in the Midwest (extreme weather, including snow, 100 degree and below zero degree weather days) using this car. I currently have 155K miles on the car. I regularly change the oil (synthetic blend after 100K) and get the belts (timing) replaced every 60K miles. Just this year I have experienced some looseness in using 1st gear (manual transmission). My goal is to get 200K miles out of the car.


Favorite Features

Low cost, good gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

Noticeable reduction in horesepower when using A/C (though not as noticeable on highway driving in 4th & 5th gears).

2004 Kia Rio Wagon Cinco 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I've had my Cinco for 6 months now and it has been GREAT! I live in metro Atlanta so driving is a way of life around here. My Cinco handles wonderfully. I've also done long distance driving and it was very comfortable.


Favorite Features

I like the interior a lot. All the controls are easy to handle. The fold down rear seats and cargo space are incredible too.


Suggested Improvements

Cruise control would be nice for those long trips. Otherwise there's nothing I can think of.

Review

This has been a very good little car . I have had absolutely no problems with this car . I've put over 18000 miles on this car in less than a year. The gas mileage has been as high as 41 mpg, never below 33 mpg.For a low price car ,you just can't beat this little car.
